“Yes that’s right, but there is no mention of theatre. It could be that the existing Melody VR app is still used(separate to the new Napster app) just for theatre and maybe even managed by Gore & Co. just a wild thought as to why Gore has gone off the radar but presumably must still be keen to invest (beyond recouping his losses). My view is that is that music streaming & VR has now back-seated Theatre and discussions are ongoing re what to do there. Gore must be primarily concerned with using the tech for theatre, but our resources won’t be able to stretch to music & theatre IMO. So, what does Gore do?! If I was him, I would license the tech, use and rename the Melody VR app to something Broadway related and then allow him to focus and manage the theatre side, all under the Naspster Group umbrella. Just thinking out loud mainly, in the knowledge that the day traders don’t work weekends.”
It still can be - they can have all said content on the Napster app, with or without links to the separate Melody app. The two could easily work in tandem. It may be that they want to free up space for day theatre productions solely on the Melody app, which wouldn’t be suitable for the Napster app
Hi Dead - the AD does say that Melody and Napster would be combined into one app. I think it is clear from recent interviews that this has changed. Let’s hope we learn why and what the new strategy is soon!
Yes I agree. Im all for keeping some company strategy private, away from competitors; but if we have moved away from the AD and previous notified strategy, we shouldn’t have to speculate to what degree. The outcome had better be epic to justify the silence is all I will say
Or they will use it solely for live VR performances for music and theatre etc (as suggested previously) and can then promote and advertise on the new Napster app. There are pros and cons for keeping Live VR content away from the new killer app, as well as having separate marketing teams for Napster and Melody.
