    Dlisted interviews Michael Caputo about Bond

    "I’m sure Trump will be the first one to sign up, right after Ivanka teaches him that Bond is a streaming service, and not what is used to keep his hair stuck to his scalp. Oh, and Bond’s creators are two Russian guys, so go ahead and make of that what you will." - Michael Caputo

  • The "Roseanne" Revival Might Find A Second Life On A Conservative Streaming Service

    Variety: sweet spot between YouTube and Netflix

    Caputo said that Bond is aiming at the sweet spot between YouTube and Netflix. The former provides little return for content creators; the latter poses challenges for placement.

    [The platform] will also rely on a business model based on cryptocurrency and “crowd investing,” in which fans would buy shares in the content, and the creator would get a slice of the subscription proceeds.

    The content of Bond will be aimed at filling the gaps in content ignored by major networks and the “Hollywood gods,” as Caputo calls them, which could include shows that strike a chord in middle America.

    “In flyover country, three-fourths of the stuff they put on television is unwatchable,” he said. “Suddenly, we get a ‘Roseanne,’ a show we can enjoy, and then a decision of a Hollywood mogul determines what we can and cannot watch.” He said that the content will not necessarily have a conservative bent, but will try to fill what he sees as an underserved audience.

Bond.pm is a good place to do it.

    Vulture: on Bond everyone could be a producer of Roseanne

    As Caputo explained to the Daily Beast, “Roseanne would join Bond, upload a proposal for new content and fans would buy shares. As her new content is uploaded, a small piece of each viewer’s subscription would be paid to Roseanne. Her user-investors would profit from her success or lose their investment if she flops.” So essentially, everyone could be a producer on Roseanne.
