The bonus to being the first to stick out your neck with made-for-streaming TV is that you'd also be the first to figure out how to make the money work.
People do pay for original content on the web. They buy music, TV shows and books from iTunes and other places; they already buy ebooks from Amazon and Barnes & Noble (I have money in my pocket because of this, so it works). The trick is to make it both appealing to your niche audience and affordable-- then people will click and buy. And the trick to making it affordable is a low budget. No quarter billion dollar budgets for big video game movies. You need green screen like Sanctuary
or simple (but aesthetic) sets like Exeter
. It is possible.
