Disney Plus Launches Star, A Streaming Outlet With More Grown-Up Fare

"Knew that star was launching february twenty third which recording this yesterday. I am in canada. So i have access to it along with australia. New zealand parts of europe in singapore. So a few countries have this new section on their disney plus app. And it's a big deal. It's a big deal for me. Because we get all the wes anderson movies. It's a big deal for some other people because they get like twenty four and richard devine from window. Central is tweeting about how much she loves. Twenty four and jack bowers back baby and all that so. I just wanted to talk about where we are in terms of streaming. I know disney or marvel disney made a big bunch of big announcement this morning On when the next set of mcu in star wars shows will be released on disney plus. And then there's all the other services right. There's hbo max there's peacock there's discovery plus there's Paramount plus. I guess if you want to call that new and all this leads to confusion for people who just want to find the show to watch. So let's start with disney. They now have ninety five million subscribers. They are doing really really well. In terms of expansion into new countries. This new star lodge is a big deal so give us the t. l. Dr if you will of why star launched now and why. It's a big deal for people outside the us lawyers. It's always the lawyers. Yeah i say why did it launch now because this is when they could finally agree on. Okay here's where the contracts in so we can pick things up. Yeah the the. The really oversimplified version is this in the united states. We have hulu and hulu has basically everything. That's not under the five pillars of disney plus in those disney star. Wars marvel pixar in national geographic. Anything outside of that. you what. You're forgetting well. I was gonna say you're forgetting the pillar of twentieth century fox and twentieth century fox which is on hulu so so virtually anything outside of those five pillars in the. Us will find on hulu yes. They're exceptions the problem is hulu is not anywhere in the rest of the world. It's a decidedly american phenomenon and so disney needed a way to get all this content to everybody else in pay by the way they get to charge a little more for it too and that became star the way they first announced it they do it. What other earnings calls last year It was a little like just weird. I didn't even fully understand it at the time and it took a little while to sink in and then the developer not developer days there investor days into simmer november december whenever that was explained. It a little better really. It's just that simple if it's if it's content you can probably find on hulu here in the us it's going to be on star everywhere else. So given that disney twentieth century fox. They bought a. They bought that from fox which was previously a shareholder in hulu disney is now the majority shareholder of hulu. Why can't they just bring hulu to the rest of the world. What is that. I mean i don't know the brand well who owns. Who is the issue there although disney now entirely owns who if i correct right they finish tying their last pieces of hulu like two years ago for for all intents and purposes and there might be somebody with a little sliver but it it's a disney joint partially owned by comcast but they're buying it slowly over the next few years right. Yeah that was an agreement that was made a couple of years ago but But that's why comcast is okay. All of our stuff is leaving hulu at this date because we will no longer have a share in it and it's all going to peacock But yeah the reason that who didn't exist in all these other countries was media streaming lauzon like entertainment and streaming laws vary by country by country. It takes a lot of money to get the rights to a decent amount of shows in places other than the us so it was a matter of hulu. Didn't really have the time or the or the money to spend on investing in trying to build up a catalog and other countries the only other country that hulu is in outside of the united states is japan. And i'm not sure how much longer is going to be there since they're probably going to roll it into star but it's disney had the clout to roll around the disney also already had rights to a lot of these things or the released they in contracts and have the rights back right so it's just easier to bring a new sub domain umbrella underneath disney plus put all the twentieth century fox content in there called star and make it a separate kind of expansion for everybody who already has disney plus. All star is disney. Plus for grownups. It's harder to always you know proper phones not anymore. But that's a. That's a good analogy. Yeah all right. So we we have star. It's got all the twentieth century fox stuff. I think it's got more than that. That's also where a lot of like. Abc television stuff ended up. It's also where a bunch of other like indie stuff that disney and fox had bought up over the years. Anything fox searchlight his ended up in there. That's why it's it's a huge a collection of content. I'm amazed that they were able to get the international rights for those together quickly. Enough for star for the international launches. So the question. I have is is disney. Plus going to host new content in star is that is this where they're going to compete with netflix and hbo for adult viewership or are they still kind of not really aiming at that audience. No actually. I think you've got that right in. It's going to get a little weird because contents can vary by country but you can see that a little bit in the in the Release lists you get you get stuff that is decidedly more adult in there and and part of that is just from the content. That's coming out of those houses in the first place. If you look at specifically fx stuff here it's called fx. Hulu it is it is. I don't know that. I'd go so far as to say it's r rated but it's pretty damn close. Fx is yeah fx is definitely not child-friendly content like ninety percent of it like isn't fx. Were archer lives yeah. Fx is is archer archer archers ethics original sort of But yeah we look at the. The new exclusive stuff like fx on hulu like depths. Was one. I loved last year. I thought it was excellent right up until the end and it went. A little off the rails. Mrs america was on there as well. I mean there's stuff that the you wouldn't even otherwise necessarily see on cable but that they're streaming in that fashion. lets them. do you know just a little more than they. otherwise would have And it's not something that you would see on disney plus so this gives them another conduit for that stuff as well. Yeah and the brand new original content is also going. It's going to vary by the audience category. 'cause like anything that's marvel or star wars is not going to be listed under the star brand period. If it belongs to one of those temples it's still going to be disney plus branded and everything starts going to have the both labels at the bottom whenever they're advertising it but it's a matter of if we're going to do original series if it's pg or if it's pg thirteen below it'll probably be disney plus branded and if it's not pg thirteen disney and pg thirteen and up will probably be star

Justice Department drops challenge to California net neutrality rules

"Earlier this week. Department of justice dropped its challenge of california's net neutrality law. You might remember. The california introduced law after the trump administration rolled back the obama era policy which was creating more equal internet access. Trumping the doj's challenge could signal a return to net neutrality. So here to get us back up to speed and discuss what the impact of a change be is. Our reporter drew fitzgerald. Hey drew thanks for joining me shortly. So it's been a little while since we've talked about net neutrality and this is a complicated topic besides start here with a little bit of a primer. Can you explain what neutrality means and where it comes from well net neutrality. Is the idea that the company providing you access to the internet whether it's through cable a cell phone connection satellites. Whatever can't pick favorites if you're shopping online or watching netflix. Video or talking to people on zoom. Your internet provider shouldn't get away of those activities by blocking traffic or slowing. Some of the data down to make other services were better. That's the principle in practice. The federal government under president obama road rules discouraging a lot of activity with some exceptions. There were some loopholes that allow for a little bit more traffic management for cell phone providers. There were other rules dealing with privacy but on the whole it prevented the sort of blocking or throttling traffic. That open internet advocates had really worried about. What's the argument on each side of this issue. Will supporters of these rules argue that the modern economy flourished really because internet providers didn't control things too much look at google and amazon also look at net flicks that exploded even though provided entertainment. That competes directly with some of the cable tv providers. That were serving their netflix videos. Over the internet deponent's net neutrality. Rules argued that they're not really needed. Because these companies provide internet service and if they blocked or seriously degraded some of the websites and content that their customers want customers. We get mad and it would be bad business. Another argument against the net neutrality. Rules especially in washington has been that it would open the door to price regulation to setting prices. That's something that companies like. At and t. and comcast are very fearful of don't want the government involved in got it so net neutrality policies again. That's the idea that internet service providers shouldn't be able to pick favorites. That was an obama era policy. What was the trump administration's approach. Where did they follow. And how do they handle. Net neutrality will the trump administration opposed those rules and the new chairman of the fcc at the time named by president trump rewrote them They introduced new regulations that completely revoked the guidelines that the democratic led. Fcc headset few years before they also tried to make rules. That would deter states from writing their own regulations and they argued that the state of california had overstepped its authority when it filled the gulf and and wrote its own rules right and let's talk about that. California's law escalated into legal battle with president trump's. Doj what happened there. And why is it so significant that this happened in california. Yeah that's right. California did pass this law during the trump administration to try to protect the types of activities that the obama administration had supported and california's not ordinary states. The biggest state in the country as we've seen with other sorts of rules on greenhouse gas emissions internet privacy. If they pass a law that is sustained. It has the effect of really setting the agenda on a national level. A national company can't very well have rules for the rest of the country and ignore a with forty million people in it so it has the effect or it would have the effect of protecting net neutrality principles on a national level if it were put into effect now. The important thing to remember is that those rules have gone into effect yet. Pending legal challenges right and among them was a lawsuit from the trump administration's department of justice. But now that the new biden administration is in office. There department of justice is dropping that suit against california's net neutrality law. What does that tell us about how this administration could approach this issue. Well it tells us two things one is that the biden administration like most democrats still supports neutrality. Rules that are enforceable and doesn't want to get in the way of what california's doing they're aligned in their ideals. They're the second thing it tells us. Is that the diner administration. Ministration should be eager to have those california rules go into effect and become the law of the land essentially because it doesn't yet have a lot of power to act on a federal level. The fcc today is led by acting chairwoman jessica rosenworcel but is a two to split by administration. Hasn't yet named another commissioner to fill the five member commission or named a permanent chair person which really ties the commission's hand in writing the sort of sweeping rules that it did under the obama administration

The Future of Digitization, Innovation, and Customer Experience

"Bit back into history. Because i recall once we spoke about a journey that you had within comcast obviously building x want so i wanted I alone if you can share with the audience you know what is x one and then maybe few lessons from the journal making x one such a big success so the x one l. Backup the story. Where when i first joined comcast and was leading the advance video. Products group are set. Top boxes were the user experiences where we always called the blue screen but it was. It looked like something that was built on visual basic rank. The screens were little ovals. And you could pick something. And then there'd be a bit of a delay and you go to the next menu with a bunch of ovalles' you've probably a bit Then your commodore sixty four but not not the not much not much not much and none of us were really proud of the experience back. Then but that was the stated technology back then and we had partnered with a couple of companies to try to bring it to a new interactive level. And we just could not like the technology in cable had just was fairly stagnant when it came to video interfaces and so we ended up starting from scratch. It was originally a project called caliber. Where we went. And from the ground up in this was really tony werner in sri coattail with our organization started this initiative which eventually became x one where we decided to build a new video platform from the ground up and so the user experience. Now you would probably take it for granted but when we were doing back you know. I'll say ten years ago. It was stated the are where all the video was very graphical the menus or graphics and tyler and very easy to navigate and it's blended between linear tv and on demand as well as internet video. So everything's blended together. We have music in there now. So just it's really a entertainment system at this point and so that's what we ventured out to build and in winter number trials but then mass launch not just comcast but we also provided as service to other. Ms owes so for instance. Communications in the united states is a customer of ours. they use the x one platform rebrand. But the main lists from from this. If you need something to happen you need to develop on your own. Or i think the funny thing was. We didn't really set out saying we wanted to build something on her own. I think we tried to partner with a couple of companies in the past against inter. We get there. But i think one lesson for us was when you really do have to. You know transform a product space or an industry. Sometimes you just like we took team and put them in another building. You kinda sometimes you just have to step away from from all that you know and go start fresh and i think we tried multiple times not do that but we finally realized that was the only way to really break the paradigm in so that was really important. We felt as the largest broadband operator in the country that we needed to start to become more of a leader in less as less a follower of technology and so i think that was our way of figuring out how to serve lead in this space. I will say we did learn mean first and foremost we learned how to build software italy. Which was that was really. The biggest challenge for us was we'd always built. Software is oh saying earlier where someone wrote a big spec you know the product team would write a big spec handed over to engineering team. The engineering team either term to a vendor and give them that spec or start to build it themselves and the exxon was really the first time where we took on a massive initiative and singled out how to build software and build products inevitably. And that was. I think that changed the company that that changed us from being a buyer of technology to understanding how we could build it ourselves and the right way to build it ourselves it also impacted the way. We work with technology companies. Because when we did that we decided that's the way that's the way we want. Our technology partners should go software so it it started to create a bar when we dealt with technology partners it vade it and build software that way we really didn't want to be buying using their software like we. We started pushing all our partners that if they wanted to have a strategic relationship with us long term we expected them to injury and build more modular solutions and iterative quickly with their

He made mistakes, and that's why I say he's he's really reflective of all of us. But in the end he was a guy that you wanted on your side. He was a guy who was to meet the proto type Philadelphia You know, tough. Caring Someone who was motivated to doom or And help more people to achieve. And once he was put in a position to be able to do that. That's how he utilized that. Was a great basketball coach. Don't get me wrong. And those temple teams get when you consider what he did. In a glorified high school gym for a lot of years, McGonigal Hall and Look, I'm a temple guy. Really weak facilities for a very long time. You talked about before the lead of course, center opened and some of the other amenities that they have now at Temple. For him to to put Temple on the on the well, I mean, look, Harry, let Litwak was a great coach back in the day. John really in the in the more modern era in the early eighties into the nineties and to thousands What he was able to do. There was incredible. Amount of elite eight, said he reached the amount of upsets he'd play anybody at any time. When you and l V was great in the eighties in the early nineties, let's play him. Let's play North Carolina.

Hey, the sooner we're going to sponsor the sooner. I want to lead every single episode with that read. So hit up Mark, please today.

The year saw reigning MVP Sinatra jumped to Valour in the Vancouver Titans, the defending runner-ups dropped their entire roster do to covet and owners to report may ask for bargains on their massive by ends. Yeah. It wasn't good 20 21 might be better but the League's questions surrounding it only got larger this week blizzard announced the 2021 Ram. Schedule even though the Call of Duty League the o w l sister league in many rights is starting in mid-February the o w l won't kick off until April in that time three Western teams the New York Excelsior the Philadelphia Fusion and the LA Valiant all announced they'll be moving operations to Asia for the season due to covet thy that brings the division of to a split of 12 teams in the west and 8 in the East and speaking of the LA Valiant report from Aaron Halo speak in o w l Insider find that the LA Valiant have actually been sold to a company or owner in China. His report said that that new owner was a fully Chinese roster leading team will release of the entire team and coaching staff. The LA Valiant have denied that report for now. We don't know the truth, but Halo is broken plenty of stories in the past. Even if he shoots from the hip a little bit when it comes to some reports in many cases the massive binds that owners paid to get in the league are forcing them to cut costs on player salaries that's creating a really weird ecosystem or contracts are going down as Activision Blizzard game. Of an insane amount of cash the Paris a turtle are one such example as an expansion team Following season 1 the estimated price of the spot. They bought was absolutely more than twenty million volts SPN estimating that those parts are going between Thirty and sixty million each with Paris being a main International Hub. There's was probably on the upper end of that estimate range if ESPN's correct there back in November, the org released its entire roster. It's not like the Eternal were bad or anything last season. They finished first in the North Division and fourth overall. They did have a poor showing in the play-offs but this is clearly a cost-cutting measure from the management team in Paris quite similar to what happened with the Vancouver Titans during the season. So where does the league go from here the viewership breakdown points in a clear direction to me. The 2020 season had pretty bad viewership Esports chart said the average was about 46,000 viewers a decline of 60% from last season now part of that might be the move from twitch over. YouTube but still a 60% decline doesn't just happen out of nowhere The crucial thing about e-sports towards data though is that it doesn't include Chinese you worship and that's where things get a little bit interesting facts into the Nielsen am a data which does implement Chinese viewership d o w l finals the only event we have am a data for was watched by 1.55 million people. That's a 38% increase over the 2019 finals. So hey, that sounds like pretty good news. It's not League of Legends numbers, but it's still pretty good. If you can bind that little bit of knowledge with the three Western teams competing out of Asia and the one already reportedly having been sold to a Chinese owner and we see a potential exit strategy emerging or owners unhappy with their o w l investment prior to the season. The breakdown was fifteen Western teams and 5 Eastern teams that becomes 6 if the Valiant sale holds and then there are already those two are or there's already competing over there for twenty Twenty-One. Although neither am boxer Comcast have indicated. They have any plan to sell their mostly just moving over to Asia because it's a little bit easier. Logistically, I believe but going on as more owners are unhappy and more Chinese owners are actually willing to pay for these teams. I think we could see those scales tipped towards an equal split between divisions. If not favoring China eventually. There's certainly no shortage of cash for Esports in China these days.

All the corporate statements now are about their official political action committees, but there are also super PACs.

How Tech Companies Are Changing The Way They Price Things

"Chances are you've changed the way you spend your money. This year from the tech companies have noticed everyone from apple to amazon. Zoom has been experimenting with the way they price their products to try and entice and keep customers joining now to talk about. Some of their strategies is our personal columnists nicola wedding. Hey andy cole. Thanks for being here. We're going to run through the specifics in a minute. But i want to start by asking. Why look at tech. Companies pricing moves this year. What are these decisions. Tell us about the company's cigarette question. I was curious about whether or not the economic downturn prompted by this very unique pandemic would prompt companies to consider new pricing models. Or in what ways would test traditional pricing schemes. And the reason why it's unique is because economic downturns sometimes forces prices down until in this case. No one was flying into some flight. Prices went down some airlines offered. Buy one get two free seats deals. But in other cases prices went up because grocery van was higher because supply chains were in disarray. Because operational costs were higher for places like restaurants so is really interesting. Look at how companies are reacting. To this unique time i think we often think about economics and pricing models as firm that nothing is new and that there are no real experiments and pricing. But the truth is when there is a moment like this one. Nobody really knows how consumers are going to react. And so in a way a lot of these companies conducting experiments and we saw a lot of companies. Take some different approaches to that. So let's run through some of the examples we saw and we'll start with entertainment reminded us how hollywood adjust in the world of closed movie theaters. Obviously it was a huge hit. Two movie theater industry because being locked in a closed room for two hours isn't exactly cove friendly disney to interesting approach. It launched disney plus very recently and that was probably a saving grace for the company because there are lots of areas of the company that were not doing well like parks for example and mulan was. One of its biggest blockbusters this year to two hundred million dollar. Movie is the remake of a classic. A favorite of mine and they decided instead of releasing it exclusively in theaters which is normal to charge thirty dollars for early access to milan with called premier access and it was an interesting move because they were going to charge thirty dollars which is a pretty high price for streaming service as an add on to what you're already paying which is six ninety nine month for disney plus and offer that early access for three months and then make mulan apart of the larger library in december for centrally free included near subscription. So kind of just charging the price that it would cost to go see the movie at the theater but from your couch now. Milan might be a bit of an anomaly. Because of a number of factors including concerns over where the movie was filmed which was in a part of china where the government has been accused of committing some human rights abuses but batted mind. How was milan received the gamble. Pay off it fell flat. Most analysts say because of two reasons one is because there was a lot of controversy around the filming location. The ceo admitted this himself. And the second reason is that the price is really high and instead of framing the premier access price as discount for disney plus subscribers so they could have charged forty dollars for non-subscribers and thirty or twenty five dollars for subscribers to make feel like. You're getting something out of it. You know a deal. The church this premium price too subscribers. So milan didn't quite work out. It sounds like but is this something that streaming services and entertainment more. Broadly make testing. Interestingly disney's biggest rival one of disney's biggest rivals warnermedia decided to release. Its entire twenty. Twenty one slate of films included with hbo. Max not opting for the premiere pricing model and disney's next release which is pixar soul will be included in the disney plus subscription and not as premier. Add on. so you know that sort of indicates that move london. Do super well for disney. But i do suspect that if we are staying away from movie theaters well into twenty one well into twenty twenty two that they will try this again for another blockbuster release maybe with a lower price. Got it okay. So let's move on to apple. They released ton of new products this year and played on what you have dubbed the. Goldilocks effect. Can you tell us what that means. Goldilocks refers to a good better best pricing strategy. So this means you get three options or three buckets of options that represent sort of like the budget the mid tier and then the expensive model for those who have a very high willingness to pave the latest and greatest features apple for a long time has released new models one or two and then discounted previous models older models to sort of represent that good better best strategy so the budget option was always like last year's iphone this year. They released a record number of new iphone models so five in total and actually the budget option is a new phone. That was released this year. So i think what that says about apple said moving forward. They want their entire lineup their new lineup to represent more pricing tiers to appeal to wider swath of people so even those who are willing to spend just a couple hundred bucks at a phone can feel like they're getting a new iphone sort of expanding their addressable market. And as you mentioned. This is a tactic that apple has used since long before the pandemic but is there a reason sort of doubling down on this in a year like this one. Yeah you know. One of the pricing consultants. I talked to says that more pricing tiers kind of a protective measure for some companies apple is a premium brand so they can get away with selling a multi thousand dollar iphone in during an economic downturn but the lower end iphone. se. That's just a couple of hundred bucks you know. Three three between the four hundred bucks allows them to keep the customer that has a tighter budget in their brand. And hopefully that person will upgrade to a more expensive iphone in the future got it and in a similar pricing move. The fitness company peleton introduced another more expensive stationery bike and lowered the price of the existing model by about three hundred fifty dollars. So what fa logic with this move. Eso not exactly good better best because two tiered pricing system. A lot of economists called this committee classic price discrimination where someone who has ohi willingness to pay more features will pay for the very expensive two thousand four hundred ninety five dollar by plus with all the bells and whistles and those are just starting to get into a stationary bike gang but really wanna peleton are willing to pay the eighteen ninety-five price. This one research paper. That i discussed in the peace looked at this williams sonoma case where two hundred seventy five dollar. Red baking appliance wasn't selling at all and then williams sonoma a more expensive model and then the cheaper model. She sales doubled. So you know. Peleton may have been drying from this classic case here we. We don't have exact numbers on its performance but in earnings calls peleton was very bullish on. It's cheaper model and said that it would continue to be its bestselling bike but what happened is during the pandemic people were more willing to pay for premium equipment because it was replacing their gym membership. And so wait times for this. Newer by plus are now up to ten weeks and wait times for the cheaper bike are know almost half that that time so it seems like maybe peleton should have priced. They're more expensive by maybe even higher or maybe they're less expensive lake even more affordable. So i think that brings us to the fourth big pricing strategy. We saw which is this trend of companies dropping walls and generally making more of their product or service accessible for free. You just right into some of what we saw there. Yes so early. On in the pandemic a lot of companies were responding to this very sudden turn towards work from home and being online and not really being able to communicate with with other people in person so zoom for example lifted their forty minute limit for k. Through twelve educators eighteen other service providers lifted data caps. Comcast made its network of xfinity Wifi access points free for everyone. You don't need comcast subscription. The list goes on and on what they're sort of taking advantage of is the fact that free is great advertising and free something really miraculous to our brains. Were very persuaded by zero dollars. There is this very famous study of students who had the choice between a one set. Hershey's kiss or twenty six cents lynch truffle and when given that choice most students picked the lynch truffle but when the researchers lowered the price of the hershey's kiss to free and the lynn truffle to just one cent below. Even at the price difference was the same. Most students opted for the free. Hershey's kiss so free has a very strong pull on our psyche and these companies. Think that in offering free services they spread goodwill but they also increase the amount of people who are using their service and the thinking is that potentially those people will pay for other things in the long term. so nike is a good example of this. They made their are trading club app. Free the premium subscription cost some amount of money to be able to work out with their very chiseled very good-looking trainers and These trainers are wearing like clothing. And there's a short cut in the app to buy nike apparel and so in making the free They're able to sell more naked goods so they're actually making it free permanently. Yes that nike move definitely worked on me but i wonder aside from that. What is the business case for this option. I think i'm still a free user of zoom for instance which is not making them any money. As far as i know we have seen some indications at this early working for some companies zoom was extremely well positioned to do well this year but in making their service free they got more people acquainted with the service and they started rolling out new products like this new pricing page for people like trainers to charge for zoom sessions. And so i think if you're used to using a service you're more willing to hand over your credit card to that service and their revenue shot up. You know something like over three hundred percent this year year over year that may have something to do with the fact that zoom was like the premier video conferencing tool that we all leaned on but also has to do with the fact that they have a really robust free tier that allows most people to use the service without paying for for extra stuff finally we have subscription model and it sounds like the grocery delivery market is a good example of this. Yeah so home. Delivery exploded this year. It allowed people to stay away from grocery stores which all of a sudden became dangerous activity and Walmart really capitalized on this moment by offering a subscription service It's called walmart. Plus and it includes free unlimited delivery from local stores. The thinking is that it pays for itself interest deliveries walmart says. What's interesting about this example. Is that you know. Walmart really rushed this program out and so they had very scant perks and the program cost ten dollars a so that easiest comparison the laziest comparison is is tames on prime which on top of free unlimited delivery offers you know this giant entertainment bundle free photo storage etc etc until i think it was is hard for people to justify the price between walmart plus and amazon amazon prime. But we don't have numbers for walmart plus yet and it may very well have been a success and walmart plus and amazon prime aim to do the same thing which is try to make walmart or amazon the default shopping choice in her mind and i think walmart plus is a good way for walmart to become more salient in people's minds. And let's just break that down a little bit more. How does the subscription model actually work to create sort of a stickier relationship with consumers. Yeah other examples are dash pass. Switches door dashes new membership tier which lowers delivery and service costs for its customers. These companies are trying to keep switching costs high. So you want to feel like the more you use this service. The more you safe if you delivery cost three dollars typically for every order the more orders you deliver the more you squeeze out of that thirteen dollars. A month subscription so they're trying switching costs high and trying to increase the willingness of customers to buy without thinking are those are the five strategies we said at the beginning that this is sort of a big experiment. So what are the takeaways here. Are there certain hypotheses that are clear winners and losers will i. I think one of the the clear winners is definitely more pricing options for customers. That said can self select into whatever tier. they're most comfortable. Paying and that maybe premium pricing wasn't the right move but the truth is this pandemic is to go on for several more months or potentially another year and Pricing changes all the time and in the course of my reporting the story had to change multiple times because the prices kept changing perks. Kept being added onto bundles into it. Seems like companies are still trying to figure this whole thing out as we all are very enough all right. Our personal tech columnist nicole new.

A Detailed Discussion With Kim Chestne ON How To Use Your Intuition y

"It's time to bring on our special guest today. Kim jesse so. Kim is the author of radical infusion of globally recognized in innovation leader and founder of intuition lab. Her work has been featured are supported by leading edge organizations such as out by southwest carnegie mellon university comcast and hewlett packard while working as a leader in the tech sector. Kim recognize that tremendous role that intuition plays in business and cultural progress and set out on a quest to learn everything there is to know about it and as of nearly two decades worth of research and practice she has developed a powerful system that anyone can tap into to access the inner wisdom in ordinary with so really really exciting and kim. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me excited to talk to you tonight. Yeah me too. It's supposed to be in our species night especially in india because it is valley the festival of lights and there's actually a transformation going on in india as well. This started many decades back because as you know india and the valleys associated with firecrackers people becoming more and more conscious as they let go off that external firecrackers and realized the light that is within them the lamp within the essence within. I think that's got me to do our own in to it absolutely. Is that inner light that intellect growing so strong. It's such a beautiful metaphor and it's a beautiful day for us to be having this conversation because it really all does tie together absolutely so. Let's start from the beginning. Where were you born and warm. Was your childhood lane. Well i was born in a little town called carlisle pennsylvania small town girl and You know i think i had. I had sort of your colonial white picket fence upbringing in one thousand nine hundred eighty s america which was really fun and if you remember the eighties and so it was really fun. Time to grow up. And i think that's it's those times it really started to develop my interest in intuition and i had a lot of intuitive experiences growing up so It all kind of stemmed from those childhood years amazing and work sort of influence. Did your family have on your intuitive or spiritual development. Yeah you know. That's a really good question because a lot of people we have this talk about intuition and when it happens to you intuition can be something that people can either accept or not accept right so when you're talking about kids and it's so important with kids because kids have such great in and they haven't really had it beaten out of the yet. It's one of these things still alive and still so connected with intuitive. Things starts to happen with children. Appearance can either encourage that or they can create fear. Be like oh my gosh. This is something to be afraid of or this is crazy. You know so it's You know working with intuition in my childhood it was challenging for me. Because i think coming from a really sort of traditional christian background. There's not a lot of room for intuition. Especially it was more of the protestant. I think in the catholic traditions. There's more of a place for the holy spirit in a lot of mistakes but in my experiences growing up in my little world there was not a place for intuition and so it was something i really had to come to terms with on my own and really facing a lot of fears and a lot of sort of judgment from the people around me and now they get it like my mom's very intuitive she inherited from her. I think it is something that we have a genetic propensity to. But i think there's just not that level of acceptance which in the east which i think is so wonderful about you know eastern cultures. Intuition is so much more integrated in daily life and acceptance right. Yeah that's that's very true. And i think like we were discussing before the india was india also is going to its own journey of realizing how abundant and whilst our own heritage is and going back to our roots realizing that wisdom about intuition and the mind and the soul and yes we're going through our journey as a country has But you know what what comes to. My mind is As i learned more about how children behave like a child always looking at his mom or her mom or her danna his dad for approval right. They're always looking at the so. It's not so much of words but it's also about how the bench reacts to. A certain situation are something that is happening on the word. Maybe that micro reaction that can make a huge difference right in terms of how the child approaches word even as an adult absolutely absolutely in those little foundational moments. They and this is talk a lot about conditioning. If you read my booker you hear me talk today. I'm probably going to use that word. A lot Because intuition is something that is really a counterbalance to this conditioning. That we all get and we get it from those very first moments with our family and with the people that we grow with you know. We're conditioned to think things. Like oh intuitions not real. Or we're conditioned thank like our imagination in our creativity isn't as important as our intellectual side so so part of really balancing these sides of our brains and really coming into our true being is stepping away from that conditioning in releasing it

Not surprisingly the owners of that shoprite did not like having the union and a giant rat protesting outside their store. They did not like it so much. They complained to their lawyer.

Toni Bernhard on Self-Compassion and the First Noble Truth

"Because it is so great to have you with us on the wisdom comcast. I'm really happy of asia. Thanks daniel think we might start off with you know so in about two thousand and one is when you you got sick. I believe in and seems. Then you've found inspiration in buddhist teachings and practices for learning how to be sick and we're gonna get into that in detail. But i wondering if you could tell us a little bit about how you initially came across these teachings and actresses okay. Well it was an about ten years before. I got sick so approaching thirty years. This may is nineteen year of my suffering from chronic ghana's so when i was in my early twenties i developed some interest in spiritual matters a lot of alan watts. I got my mantra from the maharishi. And then my husband. And i raised kids. All of that was put aside and when they Either late high school or had left home. When i had my wartime to myself. I started Looking back into spiritual practices and maybe only academic would do this. I bought like six copies of the dow teaching. Maybe five and i read the same verse in each one and then wrote my on verse based on my understanding of those translations and i have no idea were any of that is but it's relevant because one of the translations was by stephen mitchell and i found myself it was a great translation but i've found myself really interested in the footnotes because he can't there may have been some other people but he noted several times quoted this Somebody called master sung son. Who i subsequently learned was a korean zen master who when he first arrived in the states. I was fixing washing machines but then developed a Songa in providence rhode island and now is worldwide. His quantum school is in. And i just love the the quote senate came across one that that said no south. No problem i thought whoa. Whoa sounds no problem. I didn't know what it meant. But i also note was jam. He fascinated me so much. These footnotes that i went to the library at uc davis campus shields library and it went to the card catalogue and looked up sung sun and discovered that in the dr day basement of shields library were rows and rows of buddhist books and i found his dropping ashes on the buddha but i found a treasure trove and i started leading mostly tree traditions zen tibetan and tear baden. I couldn't get enough. Just taking him out piles and That's how i. I learned a lot about the buddhist teachings but i thought what am i supposed to do and so i wrote just stephen mitchell and i don't remember what i said but i remember what he wrote back to me. He said looking at an painting of an orange is not the same as eating orange. And then he recommended to possible dharma centers that i could go to from. I live in davis which is near sacramento so that central valley and they were both in marin county bay. Area was john. Toronto sonoma's zen center. I think and the other one was called spirit rock meditation center and he recommended jack cornfield and i don't remember why i chose that have no. I've just been thinking. How did i get there.

Stories That Scale with Casey Graham

"I'm your host. Daniel tardy and my guest today is casey graham cases. The ceo of company called gravy. Maybe you've heard of them. Probably have because all they sponsor this podcast. We've been telling you about them. These guys are friends. They're good people and they share the vision of helping business owners win. That's what we're all about here. In case he's built an entire company around that one principle that if you'll show up and love your customers after they become a customer that creates a winning business guys. You can't just look at the the sale taking place as the finish line. Not the finish line for your customer. It's the starting line and you've got to deliver excellent with your service until you get them to become a customer for life everything you want out of your business doesn't come from getting your customers pay one time. It gets them if paying time after time. And so you know. In every survey you read for entrepreneurs they want freedom. That's the thing they want whether it's time freedom or money freedom and all that stuff you don't get freedom by getting people to pay you one time you get freedom people paying you consistently time after time and so my thing is not just yes. Let's take care of customers. Yes let's love them because they're people yes let's serve them well but also if you want to get what you want on your business this is where it is it comes after they start paying and that's why we just always say hey one of the best things you can do is pay attention to paying people. Pay attention to pay people. And that's our mantra. We talk about all the time. And that's why we do what we do. We talk an entree leadership that one of the six drivers of a peak performing business is obviously you have to have a great product or service but the way that you deliver that doing it with excellence doing it in a way. That makes them go. Wow wow these are people they care. They went above and beyond. They're not like comcast or these companies that just don't have a heart and we call them. Go you know. They've got my money but i hate it and i'm trapped. These people actually are giving me more value than i expected What are the key to doing that. Yeah a couple of things is is understanding number. One that they're human beings like they're not they're not a number on a dashboard or a spreadsheet and so what i see is that that business owner spent so much time looking at dashboards they forget that these people really have like real lives and real stories and real stuff going on and really busy and somebody's got sick and their family and there's crisis and have fear and they have all these things going on in the beginning point of anything that you create and what you guys have done so well entreleadership and what davis done so well is rose understanding these are humans and start there and celebrate there and live there instead of. We want to get all these customers. Well one of the first things we always do is we say people's names like we tell stories about real actual people and that's the first place that we say star. That's that's number one were human. You know it's interesting you say that i think we're all susceptible to forgetting at scale especially we get a lot of customers starting to watch percentages of increase or decrease in. It's just a dashboard is in a way to try to get your head around all these numbers and all this stuff. But if you're not careful we forget these people one thing. I have right here in the studio just to help me when we're having these conversations is a picture of actual entreleadership customers. I'm looking at a amanda. She's executive director of brain ballots center. She's gonna franchise to help with Childhood development she's in orlando florida. M looking at her face. As i speak right now and several of them because here in podcast i wanna remember. This isn't about just making a great podcast. There's people out there like amanda who are listening. And what's going on anna's world today. I don't know she might be scared. She might be excited. She might have just had a record. Mont she might decide to lay somebody off. That was really hard. And so i think what you're saying is really important that we have the faces and the names of our customers and their stories front of mind for us all the time. How do we do that to Level of making sure that our team remembers this who were here for because we have certain pieces of our teams that aren't necessarily frontlines the administrative side of the business the accounting side of the business. Obviously sales is out in front. They're interacting with customers. How do we make sure our whole team remembers the names. The faces in the stories. Yeah we'll internally so. I think it comes with culture of what we celebrate. You know we always talk about what get celebrated gets repeated and it. It's true inside a gravy. We have something called gravy biscuit and slack. Meaning that when we catch somebody doing something right Or they live out our core values. Somebody who call out a gravy biscuit because we're a virtual company so we don't get to see all of this and so we throw it up in the s the gravy biscuit in one of those is around the idea of doing unscaled things for people because delaying unsalable things. Like for instance. If somebody ops out of your email newsletter literally texting them getting on the phone and calling him and saying hey listen i just don't you opted out of bundy's letter and i'm just calling you. I don't want you back in. I just want to understand why. And you give me your perspective on it and then you end up doing that. You stalk them on social media you see that they like smoothie king you send them a smoothie king gift card and that one unscaled thousands. You can't do for hundreds but you could do for one because what we found about things. Is that the story scales so you can scale the story of the unscaled things. And that's what creates the magic internally of doing. Andy stanley says do for one what you wish you could do for every one yes and then oftentimes when you catch people doing something right you scale that story and then you shared over and over and over again.

"I'm Chris L. WITH ME IN STUDIO Mr Bill Barker. Thanks for being here. We got some earnings earnings starting to heat up we've got some airlines. We've got some consumer goods. We're going to start with one of your favorite companies because it's it's based in your home country of Philadelphia comcast a fourth quarter profit and revenue for comcast came in higher than expected If it was just that that'd probably be great but it was it. It was mixed in the sense that broadband is growing for comcast but cord. Cutting is also growing the number of people just cutting the cord on on comcast television services. that's on the rise. Yeah that's on there is and okay the stock staff a little bit today but it's up about forty percent Over the last year. We're so some pretty high expectations embedded into you. Know the current Operations for the company. And if it had no response to the cord cutting that would be a bigger problem. It is a problem. It's losing I think. This is the eleventh consecutive quarter where it's lost pay TV customers and it's got peacock coming out. the NBC branded You know service. It's going to compete with Disney plus and apple plus the five other things that you can name and so it's got a competitor. A little bit late not too late in the game. What do you think about it? I think it's it's interesting that comcast with their peacock video streaming service. They are making the very clear decision. We are not going to be spending a ton of money on this. We're I'm not going to be spending a lot on original content. We're going so from an economic standpoint. I think if you're a comcast shareholder maybe maybe maybe you feel pretty good about this. Because it's not like they are gonNA say Netflix but really it's apple I mean if you look look at the numbers that apple is spending per episode reportedly on their shows. I mean it's apple. They have all the money in the world. They can do that. But you know for for the profits offense comcast generates. I think it's an interesting and probably at least out of the gate. A smart decision by Brian Roberts and his brain trust the comcast to go this route. Probably Smart I mean you'd Make a lot of money betting on his moves being smart ones Or you have over the last last couple of decades And I think that You know an indication of the degree to which they are doing this on the cheap which I think is kind of how you framed it a little bit not on the cheap but certainly their faces. You're not framing it that way. But that's what I heard from. You sure let's go with that Is the fact that one of the sort of premier new offerings that you're going to be able to get on. The service is a reboot of saved by the bell. Which I think to me underlines doing it on the cheap? You're saying it's not it's not the reports of uh you know apple saying we're going to spend fifteen million dollars per episode on this Jason Momoa futuristic show or Picard or the the man delorean Laurean or something like that saved by the bell. One assumes less in space than these other things so therefore a little easier to You know spend only ten fifteen bucks per episode absolutely and Let's not forget that they have a comcast owns NBC all the NBC properties. They've got the Olympics coming this summer so they will probably be using peacock to serve up a summer Olympic content. I'm assuming zooming and they will probably be promoting the hell out of peacock on their television network during the summer Olympics. Yeah I think that's all pretty accurate. And and so in the meantime Internet use growing high high speed broadband sales And installation that sort of thing there. making up more than making up for the lost PAYTV subscribers with increased Internet and over time. It's looks like it'll be the the larger chunk of their revenues news. Let's move on to the airlines. We've got three airlines. That came out with fourth quarter results. Jet Blues Profits and revenues came in higher than unexpected Different story for Amazon and South West. You just because those two airlines have the seven thirty seven Max which is grounded so southwest prophets were down more than twenty percent in the fourth quarter because of the seven thirty seven. Max and American you know the profits were up. I would say despite having the seven thirty seven Max. Yeah I was GonNa say this is going to be correction week because the first time through Amazon rather than American. And we'll we'll edit that out you know what I'm not going to get any email from people at American Airlines or Amazon. I don't think in the way that I did. I clearly offended the people in Sweden Sweden for saying that Davos in Sweden. So and but you didn't offend the Swiss. I don't know if we have dozens of listeners. In Switzerland like we do in Sweden I would I would think Sweden wouldn't be offended by that. They'd be offended by your our generic American lack of knowledge of basically quickly everything outside of America. That's probably so on behalf of Switzerland. Perhaps they were offended. Exactly and rising. Switzerland's honor Yes all part of the European Union Union or not. Who can remember as part of that this week? Can we get back to the airlines. Yes we can not Okay so the difference between the way Amazon. John doesn't have an airline yet right and I was GONNA say because people may have listened to that and thought I I haven't been following do they. Have you know. Are they taking over airlines too. They've got a pretty big logistics. Look you talk about Amazon five days a week right four. Let's not talk about today. Despite your attempts to do so American Airlines lines different from Amazon. Despite what you may have heard earlier in the day jet blue doing a little better in part is because they don't have exposure to the the the Boeing Max problem Southwest really has large exposure to that that's mostly Known embedded in built into the expectations -tations of today's numbers but still I think off a little bit And jetblue seemingly doing a little better Doing well with their cost cutting operations. which is what they highlighted in their report? And I don't own jet blue but I'm I always like to see just as someone one who is generally a fan of business. I liked to see companies. Come out and say this is our plan. This is how long it's going to take. And then at the ended that timeframe they actually hold themselves accountable and say okay this is what we did. You know an JEB. Lose case it's a three year cost cutting plan that they executed and and it's paying off for them and their shareholders. Literally can we go to Boeing for a second. Because Dave Calhoun has been the CEO of Boeing for about. I'm I'M GONNA the Ballpark two or three weeks. Let's call it a month. And he came out on Wednesday and was I think trying to be very optimistic. And even bullish about Boeing as any CEO would want to be bullish about their company but he said something. And I'm I don't know if you heard this but I'm I'm curious to get your take on this. Because he talked specifically about Boeing's dividend and he said we're not cutting the dividend unless something dramatic changes and I feel like that's a mistake to say out loud for publication because when companies cut their dividend they are given the opportunity to share with the investing public. Why they're cutting the dividend? Dave Calhoun wound has now just basically removed any interpretation we as investors get to make. He's already said. Oh if we cut the dividend in six months which by the way as completely plausible as they continue to have troubles with the seven thirty seven Max and so if they come out and cut the dividend even just a little bit everyone rightfully is gonna point back to this comment and be like. Wow I guess something dramatic change top. Possibly he's look it certainly. He's inherited a very difficult situation and being well paid to inherit the situation. And you know and the Nice thing is he's got an easy act to follow. Yes and so that's always a plus Yes and he's being well paid and even if he fails at the job he'll be well paid to leave because those the rules of that game and I think that Yeah if you know if somebody missteps on park like part of a sentence early on in their job I note it and you know way it accordingly But I think one interpretation it is. It's it's safe. We can never be sure that there won't be something dramatic. We're not even Calling what has happened. So far dramatic from the perspective of a dividend cut We're not trying to belittle the the consequences of it but Visa via dividend. It's not dramatic matic enough now. We can't control everything that's going to happen in future. And they can't and it so airlines are pretty poor poor performing stocks over the long term That's really still been the case Although they've gotten a little bit better Over the last five five years airlines is a whole family return one and a half percent markets returned of about twelve percent so pretty bad last three and five years for these things and it is largely attributable to the fact that it is not only a heavily regulated industry but for the most part one on which people are not complaining about too many regulations Especially in light of something like seven thirty seven Max that that people look at that and I think today there was a report from department transportation defending their work and saying look we sort of we. Didn't we didn't drop the ball here. But we've got thirty two recommendations to ourselves about ways to improve this oversight so you know the outcome some of this is contrary to much of the rest of the disadvantage rations. work on regulations which is to find signed all of them. Hunt them down and kill them if possible not to do so in in the airline industry so That inherently affects your profitability profitability. And all three of these stocks are you getting getting the job done as businesses but really not keeping up the rest of the market. All right. We'll get to consumer goods earnings in just a second but quick shoutout to Gramley Gramley writing assistant that makes you look look and sound smarter whether you're at school at work or on the go..

"So to get given specific metrics. I know that the algorithm figure out how do i have to choose and modify these rules to get loads of uvira outcome at audible got it and so it sounds as though you explain things that way as opposed to letting people consider a._i._d._s. this sort of be this magical conjuring box instead you sort of say this. Is you know maybe the opposite of programming used to be done. Think about it as another tool where we do things this way so it sounds like maybe this this analogy is a is a level center for you in getting past that misconception of you know the the magic a._i. Blackbox fox correct but also like a._m. L. more approachable because one of the things i learned in the corporate setting especially the last company like that if you have a central team that machine so i lead the center of machine learning research at contest it just doesn't scale to all the problems that you have different yeah and so the best way that has worked for us is to kind of identify problems find out some good patterns that would work for this kind of problem areas but then we need to take it to the next month work very closely. Oh sweet win the subject right comcast safe. There could be people who built a wifi gateway. The people who build the nitty home devices <music> ore is setup where the x one or the software that runs on fox's recommendation systems etc product team to work closely with them because they are the ones who understand this part of the world or the device that yes so now. We want to get the most out of machine. Learning is has to be audit relationship between both where bay kind of maybe new lock statements so that we get more insight into what happens in there. Are we provide them the truth. Tell them what examples the machine learning already does well for richland but doesn't and also to see if like if we use like there's a lot of focus is interpreted ability. You understand the model right. It's what we kind of. Get out are those tools actually make sense and matching they understanding up their system right because that way you will trust they say oh yeah the mid would take me a long time to to kind of optimize then you actually machine learning and the getting better results than before so how can we do more right because it makes my job easier i can and do things better and focus on contract tom than i could do and that's kind of like one of the coaches of food <hes> making for related programming break open the black box so that they can also see that the authors makes sense and they won't by then basically we do the gap and give them the tools so that they can do a lot of stuff themselves and they become empowered to shooter game. I'd like that actually that kind of framing. I have a feeling that the majority of the folks listening in are likely to be the the people who you speak with the functional business heads but i think think getting an idea of how a technical fellow like yourself has to make this accessible make it approachable like you said breakdown kind of that initial wall hopefully <unk> for some of the people listening listening in trying to scale a i in their own enterprises some of these tenants these principles might similarly make a accessible for them so hoping that we have some transfer of lessons here and i guess maybe that that can take us into serve our next point here around expectation so when it comes to getting started with a i mean comcast is reasonably far along wrong in some facets of the business. I'm sure in terms of leveraging a._i. I and others maybe less so but when you think about what to expect what business leaders should expect going going in. What would you wanna get across so you know maybe you're tasked with some new big recommendation project or something around payment fodor whatever the case may be. What do you wanna make sure those business people understand. Is you get into a brand new machine learning project in an enterprise so i think one of the fundamental things that someone has to understand instead traditionally early and we talked about program right the main focus was on developing algorithms to achieve a certain so now with machine learning a._i. It's it's not just the other them but it's also the data. That's a being used to determine the machine. Learning training then the data is also part of the algorithm during every execution in the way because the data determines the eventual also and so that means <hes> to be able to successively youth machinery i that you have to we start on the data side and make sure that your data pipelines are treated with the same care and attention that traditionally you are gave to your software development. I was making it all and i think that's something that is often clear so i love this. Remember exactly who footage together but we use as many of my talks which is out of the hierarchy of new okay go ahead yeah. This is interesting so basically kirby. How one thing builds up on the other and like the first one is that you have to instrument czar on your systems systems sufficiently so that they output data that you then can use later on to make decisions right once you have done that which is really f._b._i. Occasion level where every developers should output the information they might be familiar then afterwards you have to set up the right right and <hes> infrastructure to be able to transport the data store the data secure the data access to once you have done that. They have to look into ways to ensure the data quality so that you notice that things are changing from the conditions when models were being trained is gonna be simple.

"That disney put on the table is actually dilute of disney shareholders per our analysis however as they reduced the amount of equity that they put in deal increase the cash even at today's low rates deal becomes less and less dilute of and actually a little bit of creative here so depending upon the the elections of cash versus stock so it's actually for disney from a near term perspective a little bit better believe it or not and then i think just kind of goes to i think it reflects the fact that i think investors feel like this might be a knockout punch by disney well taking a look at the shares of comcast on the other hand you don't comcast investors don't seem to have liked steal the stock is down nearly eighteen percent so far this year today basically unchanged you think that the if indeed disney walks away with this that this will be something that we positive for comcast i think so in a short term you're exactly right their stock has been down this year it's been under performing even charter which is another cable company and i think the concern there with comcast was just exactly what happened that they would try to use their balance sheets that make a big acquisition and then and you know really limit the amount of stock can buy back or the amount they could invest in some of their other core businesses and i think comcast investors while they're obviously very supportive of brian robertson is manager team i think they feel like the fox assets are not as critical to the future of comcast as they might be for disney as a result i don't think comcast's shareholders were quite as supportive of the comcast management board as shareholders have proven to be so the question then will be a what is pump cast do here in response to the disney bid and b if they lose where does comcast go next do they try to cobble together some assets like a discovery communications like some other media companies that might be out there like some film studios that might replicate in some way the assets that they did not get with fox thank you so much for being with us and i'm sure we'll be following this on an ongoing basis as the saga continues to play out pulse weenies us director of research and senior media and internet analyst for bloomberg intelligence.
