- Another form of media in the same place: games (interactive media)
- A couple of other payment models: free; and ad supported
- The media service must facilitate direct upload by any content creator, even if that's one man in his room with a microphone
For the consumers' convenience, a monopoly is ideal (i.e. all media in one place - no need to traipse around the world wide web looking for who hosts the content you want to see). However, this would place enormous power in the hands of that monopoly. As such it may be optimal to have the service provider as a not-for-profit (cost recovery) pan-industry joint venture with significant regulatory oversight.
