“Surely this has to be the way forward to give fans old and new the best way to view and listen to the music… a very sensible alternative to those platforms that already exist.” – Rick Wakeman
Given the demise of the DVD as a consumable item, no more support at retail for the format or end user demand. Rick Wakeman has always been seen as an innovator and pioneer, not only as a musician, but as a businessman. The logical solution was to commission his team to build an online platform for all his films, videos. Rather than a subscription based approach (ie. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Apple TV), or an ad based system – (ie. You Tube). Rick has pioneered a Pay Per View solution, that way the fans can choose and pay for only the film or video they want to see and not get hooked into a monthly fee or subscription.
