About

  • Elusive View (EV) is a new video streaming service, specializing in television shows and movies that are not available on any other SVOD service (Netflix, Amazon, HBO, etc.), as well as producing original content. 
  • There are many shows that have won Emmys, Golden Globes, and other major industry awards, but can’t be found anywhere on streaming, DVD, or Blu-ray.
  • EV has identified a large number of high-quality, critically-acclaimed, impossible-to-find shows, and will seek the exclusive rights to stream them.
  • If you love TV and have been searching for a particular show that isn't currently available to stream anywhere else, it is probably in our database.
  • EV can't guarantee any particular show, but we will do our best to offer a wide range of dramas, comedies, documentaries, mini-series, etc.
  • Netflix, Amazon, and HBO are great, but they don't have everything. Elusive View will specialize in hard-to-find, high-quality, critically-acclaimed television shows and movies.
  • Cable companies are currently engaging in huge mergers, spending tons of money on legal fees and golden parachutes for executives. EV will spend the bulk of its money on licensing great content for subscribers. It is a customer-focused company that seeks to offer an excellent service at a reasonable price.
  • Here is a summary of our first original show: It's a scripted drama about a group of people facing career changes in a post-recession era of "freelance consultants," "permanent temps," and "40 year old interns." With varying results, some try to return to corporate life, some try their hands at entrepreneurship, and others relocate to restart their lives elsewhere.
  • Some other shows we hope to make in the future are: a showbiz comedy about life behind the scenes at a police procedural drama; documentaries about travel, fashion, and other topics; and movie adaptations of several books (both fiction and non-fiction).

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is that Elusive View will not be able to obtain the rights to certain TV shows/movies (our top choices). It's possible that another streaming service will buy the rights to some of them, or that some shows will be too expensive. While that would be disappointing, we built a large database of shows, so there are numerous other options to choose from. After funding, the first step for us will be to hire a legal team to immediately to begin licensing the rights to as many great shows and movies as we can afford (the projected budget is shown in the video).

There is also a risk of delays, mainly that Elusive View will not be up and running by December 2016 as planned. It may take longer to have the website and all mobile apps working well enough to run streaming video reliably. If so, the project could be delayed, but likely not more than a few months. Backers will still be able to activate their subscriptions at any time after Elusive View has been launched - so if they happen to be too busy to watch much TV at that time, they have the option to wait longer and activate their subscription at a convenient time.
