Roku, Youtube, HBO discussed on Clark Howard

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, whatever, and you got all these premium sports channels, all included, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, those are just pirates selling you a pirate box. So it's confusing because they're now are more and more streaming products that really are free. And I wanna hit you with some of them crackle, which is available on most streaming platforms like Roku. I don't know if it's on the Amazon fire stick or not Roku is really the dominant platform now and Pluto, which is a channel with free programming Roku has its own Roku channel where the stuff's all free. Voodoo is doing a free medium business model voodoo is now owned by WalMart and has a mixture of stuff that they rotate and that's for free. And then other stuff you typically paid a rent on voodoo and PBS kids. Now has a free streaming product that they make available on Roku TV's and Roku devices. So this is a real change. That has started to have influences in ways at NC coming YouTube has YouTube TV which is a streaming product where you get a lot of the traditional pay TV channels, but you pay for it. I think it's forty a month. Now, there are people that are grandfathered in the old thirty five dollar price. Then there's regular YouTube one of the most visited web addresses there is.
