YouTube’s current apps on the iPhone and Apple TV and many other devices won’t preroll ads, something a lot of content creators require. Channels with high-end production values must to be able to make money from ads. No ad roll, no video for you. (It’s worth noting that even before Apple dumped the YouTube app from iOS6, it had long been in need of an update.

“One [perk] we call the ‘Super Fan,’ which is just a basic perk to get our app first and kind of test that out,” Farudi said. “But then we are doing experiential things as well… the idea was to really get fans much closer to a team and have these experiences that are generally reserved for people that have had their whole careers in sports and in the sports business world.”

“(The soccer team) made this concession, knowing that if the judge bought it, they’d get the domain name anyway,” Froomkin said. “By succeeding in this, they’ve mapped the strategy which completely guts the ability of a losing registrant to go to court in the United States.

This year, I will have the opportunity to take my son to his first Disney on Ice tour. I can still remember my first show and I can’t wait to let him experience his. I’m sure that he will be dancing to the upbeat music and cheering on Merida as she attempts to win her own hand in marriage in an archery contest. Even though this particular show centers around the Disney princesses, I know my son is going to love every minute of it.
