And the New Yorker is really doing a lousy job with these digital collections: I spent ten minutes trying to find someplace on the web to buy them, to no avail.

Old content… even decades old content is massively valuable in the “long-tail” environment. My wife loves watching Family Ties. My 18 month old son loves watching the same PBS kids shows I watched growing up.

NFLX picked up thousands of hours of content like this for dirt cheap prices. Content owners like DIS, CBS, SONY and others are licking their chops at another cut of revenue from assets which have been long since paid for amortized or depreciated down to zero.

The compilations are free to TNY subscribers.
