It seems as though Amazon may be having it’s “Netflix moment“, as The Verge put it in an article published yesterday announcing the renewal of its hit original series Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor. We discussed its success and what it means for Amazon, as well as what it means for competition in the original online series space. We’ll likely talk even more about this show next week, with the news of its renewal. Are you watching? What do you think of the show? In other original programming news, Netflix announced an upcoming sequel to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, as well as an exclusive four-picture deal with Adam Sandler.

We also went over a topic we blogged about last week — how big media companies are investing big money into YouTube multi-channel networks, which are already established entertainment hubs with built-in talent and even more important, with built-in audience. Oh, and just for good measure, we talked about how weird the new Cuddlr app is.

Tune in below, and listen to us live next week on Wednesday morning at 9:30am!
