Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress

"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.

Documentaries having new life thanks to streaming

"The pandemic has sent us all home without access to gyms, hair salons movie theaters. So what's a documentary into do? Peter Spier Academy Award nominated producer director has been making films for several decades dock. He says the documentaries are now finding a renaissance in streaming. One of the unexpected side benefits were filmmakers and peters going to tell all about it Peter. Yes thank you very much a pleasure to be here with us. To tell us about what's going on in streaming. So right now. Because of Covid people are staying home. Fortunately, streaming has really picked up since that time and their reports for the strenuous got up between thirty five and forty percent, so people are now. Using streaming taxes, all of their content Bluefin's shows the Netflix. We're talking about Netflix. Talking about Amazon Voodoo Fandango Comcast Cox. All of these platforms are doing very well. You've got a bunch of different. Movies are out there right now. Summer old summer newer. Tell everybody about what you've got in what what you've seen it. Is it been easier to get them up there? So let's start with telling everybody about some of the titles. Right, so I have a couple of club rugged entertainment. We have three titles right now. A film that I got back from a distribution company called Doug's more which we now have on Amazon Voodoo and Fandango? Probably a few others Newfield called the Sharm hate about the OT. PT Community and that film is currently on all platforms. And we're what's called transactional video so for your for people out there that don't know the difference. There's a transactional video which means you have to rent the video there s Vaud or Day. which subscription video which would be services like? Netflix and Hulu at Amazon and Yeah, so those are the two main. Video. in demand on demand services. Are You finding? There is a bigger thirst for documentaries from the buyers right now than there was before covert. I think with the emergency. Some big documentary programmes tiger king right now out of control in terms of popularity Are you know the jinx? That was another one that kind of broke through and we're looking at documentaries that. Are Not only one offs, but sure. I have what's called a one off. which is just single episode, but. They're also you know episodes. Alike limited a limited series for it's. One two I mean would say three to five or six episodes now. How are you finding the documents as Documenta? How're you finding as a documentarian? Being able to shoot right now when we're social distancing and we're wearing masks, and you're not supposed to be going out and doing these things how you're getting stuff done. It's almost impossible I you know. I think the industry is trying to come to terms with how we are going to move forward shooting the biggest issues insurance so being able to cover, not only the liability. But to protect the crew, that's a whole thing, but you know what it's easier with documentaries and doing a full on production so I think you. Wall Street documentaries because of the cost and the. The smaller impact with the size of the crew well, you could always interview people outside. You don't have to interview them in their office and that has to help right. Well people are doing those kinds of things and then there are you know because people are getting accustomed now to save zoomed interviews, there are documentarian making. Documentaries using zoo. Which is pretty interesting so They're just setting it up and you know you do your interview it. Routing out with other kinds of clips and archival footage, but yeah I mean. People are doing all kinds of work around to make this. If you watch the local news or the National News, it's now become the reporter introduces. As Zoom interview basically and they they cut back and forth between the reporter, staring this computer, his or her computer, and then there's zoom interview. So how do you? You Always WanNa, take documentary docu documentary and take it to another level. So how do you make that more instinct? Well I think in those cases. They're using just the. presets of that look. I think if you're doing the documentary yet more time to creatively do with that particular interview, but you bring up a good point, and you only have limited resolution and quality to zoom interview and. you know unfortunately you have to deliver to the platform, and the platform may reject it based on the quality, so it's definitely something that's going to have to be navigated. Okay finally, tell everybody, but does more. This was the film that you did several years ago. It's been lost lost for years, and it's now back alive again. Thanks to streaming, so plug it in television, yes! Dunn's more features. wwl Brown could name. Harbison Talia Shire a Barry Corbin. Some really cool actors. It's kind of who done it I call it You know a small a town film. On steroids and it's very cool, cool film. And I've got disarm hate about the LGBT committee that's got documentary out now. Streaming narrated by Harvey Fierstein and we have our latest film. Michael Debar. Who Do you walk me? Be About? His kinda zealot type character who was in the film shirt with love and also performed of a billion people at live aid. And why is there a documentary? Why is there a documentary about him now? Well. He's also currently DJ Little Steven's underground garage his second. Biggest DJ that's to Howard Stern, so he's very popular on Siriusxm but He's got an incredible life I. Mean you know it's? It's also a story about recovery. And I'm telling you no matter what you've been through in your life, it will not compared to what he's been through. You can't even imagine the stories the sky half well you. You'll get to see in the film so if you're going to go off and watch documentaries on streaming this weekend. Where should we go? go to Amazon Tango all those places. VOODOO COMCAST COX but the three films to watch Dunsmore. Michael the bar. Who Do you want me to be and disarm me and you could see them on Fandango, Voodoo and Amazon. All of those react Peter spier rugged releasing.

NBCUniversal’s Peacock Streaming Service Debuts Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

"About Peacock that is NBC's new streaming service. Good luck, Peacock. We're doing that now. It's like five. Okay, so Yeah, Peacock is tender, so there's a free version. Ah, that is 05 and 10. You can pay what you want right? It can have a free version, which is just all ads. Then you have a $5 version with still some ads or than $10 Without Peacock. You had a chance here. If You had the Olympics if you had pulled your parks and rack 30 rock the office all those programs that you made famous from all the other streaming platforms. But as far as I know, I could watch 30 Rock on Amazon Prime. I can watch the office still on Netflix or not. For long, though it was only for the rest of this year. All the NBC content is being pulled back to pick up 2021. I could see this really taking off. But this year of least they knew the Olympics for this. Soft, long and yeah, without the Olympics, which are not happening until 2021. If they haven't happened it all I really think it's him. I don't think any of their original mean Look, David Schwimmer, You seem pretty funny, but that's your lead program that you're trying to sign people up with. I don't think that that's going to sign up a bunch of $10 a month. Subscribers and Cove it slow down the production of AA lot of their original content. Production wise. Yeah, but they all had that problem. Nephew has the same problem exactly. They do, but They've already got the user base. This is a new platform that library he had a shell out money for me, and he's got a massive library. You'll be able to watch all your previous shows on NBC's. I'm not worried about the content library, but it's just one more thing that I gotta sign up for and pay for, and most of the stuff I've already either already seen. Or if I have cable, Aiken, go see Jeffrey Comcast already. You can already used that app, which I haven't done May I think it's set up for failure, but you know what? It's supposed to be a supplement to their existing business. They're not trying to eat away at cable subscribers, so I don't know. It doesn't seem like it's going to be a huge hit to me

NBC's free streaming service Peacock hopes to cut through subscription fatigue

"Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Melanie and Matt Peacock, which is the streaming offering from NBC? Universal and comcast is coming online next week. You know people made fun of Peacock in the industry. People were like Oh. Peacock is so late and peacock is so behind, and peacock is going to be free and Haha that's funny and I have to. To I'M GONNA treat myself not for one minute that I think that was funny. I thought that is sensible logical, and it will be a standout in this crowded field, and I kind of feel like I'm right now a lot of people. I think also were thinking that I was right. We'll see, but there is definitely what what comcast calls subscription, fatigue and I agree. Agree there is a feeling in the consumer world that there's all these subscription television services that are pitching themselves as Netflix's alternatives or or Netflix's for X., or you know you gotta get this upgrade to HBO and get HBO. Max and they all cost money. And if you look at the advertising associated with peacock there hammering home, the fact that this is free, if you. You want a free alternative to those other guys. This is for you and there's some pretty good stuff. I mean there's thirty rock. There's law and order. There's movies from NBC Universal You. Know they've got decent stuff on there. And they're looking for that casual TV viewer, who is migrating away from the cable universe, cutting the cord and looking for something they can kind of. And they don't necessarily need the latest greatest game of thrones that that. The premium subscribers looking for I wouldn't use game of thrones, because that they would need but other things they don't necessarily need, and they don't want to find it and I know people in the industry. For example, it still haven't figured out how to get HBO Max and it all just feels confusing, and and they can't deal with it and so this thing that being free and And the casual viewer that's definitely does appeal to me. You know if I had a long day. I WanNa, Watch something short easy, familiar and free, but you can also pay if if you don't have comcast us as your cable provider, or if you don't have a an access to it that way, you can pay five dollars a month and if you wanted to be ad, free? Free you can pay ten dollars a month and I will note that both of those prices are cheaper than an HBO subscription. So that is an option that I. Think is the people will want to look at meanwhile. Disney plus dropped Hamilton. They've needed something. They haven't had anything that really appeals to older people, or you know not not little kids for a long time they had a huge jump in people downloading their APP over that Hamilton weekend. Whether Hamilton really helps Disney right now remains to be seen, but I think the buzz around. It can't hurt no definitely not, and that's why they moved up the theatrical release, which was not supposed to be till twenty twenty one and put it on the service over the July fourth weekend they. They need a positive narrative right now Disney. Because this next earnings, call is going to be brutal. They have zero revenue from the theme. Parks Pin is just in free fall without sports. They have no movies in theaters because there aren't any theatres they need something. And now they have these Hamilton numbers that they'll be able to reveal and I've seen a lot of people speculating about. About. How Big Hamilton is going to be on Disney pleasant? How many people are just going to subscribe for that? I think those numbers are going to be big but I think there are a little bit skewed in the discussion by the fact, that Hamilton is a media phenomenon and everybody on social media in the media world to talk about it. Ad Nauseam so I'm not sure. Sure exactly how big it's going to be. I think you may disagree with me a little bit on that I just feel like you know reminds me of Hbo had things like the Sopranos and everybody was talking about it and you say well. It's in a bubble, and it's the media, elites, or whatever, but the truth is that seeps out in gives the gives the product A. A bit of a sheen a feeling that you kind of made me want to be a part of that and want to watch what they have. The the issue is coming. Follow it up with anything and I don't know we'll see. Thank you matt. Thank

The days of unlimited pandemic internet are over

Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood

The days of unlimited pandemic internet are over

"The days of pandemic related unlimited Internet access are apparently over. From American public media, this is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. We've been looking on our show lately. At how amidst this pandemic? The Internet is everything access and cost our problems for many people, but what about data lots of broadband providers limit how much data users can use each month go over, and there are extra fees some lifted these caps at the start of the pandemic, but as of July first comcast at and T. and T. mobile have brought back some of their data caps Tom Merritt host. The Daily Tech News Show podcast I asked him. What was the argument for data caps? If you ask the marketing departments of ISP's. They'll tell you that data caps make it a fair playing ground for everyone so that all the bits don't get used up by really really greedy people and there is a very slight truth that if a lot of people were using a lot of the Internet at the same time, it can cause some congestion, but it's not like there's a limited amount of bits the. The real justification is that they want ways to price things to encourage people to want to pay more and data caps are a way that people can understand. Oh, if I use more data I, pay more okay. I get it on some level. I can see that being a slightly reasonable argument like there is no other service. Where if you use more, you don't pay more right, or is this true lease artificial? I think the disconnect. Because even though the government assures us, it's not a utility. People think of the Internet is a utility. The the difference comes in the justification. If as just said yeah, we're just like that. I think fewer people would have an issue, but the ISP trying to argue that they're fighting congestion just really doesn't hold water. When you do examinations of congestion, they generally happen at peak use times whether there are data caps are not data kept supply all day long, so they don't really. Encourage people not to use data at the times were congestion might be caused and they don't. It sounds like you're also saying they don't improve service for everyone. The congestion still occurs. It's just that some people have to pay correct. Yeah, that that that prime time congestion anybody especially on cable ISP has run into it when everybody gets home specially at a time when everybody is home and fires up there video APPs data caps. Don't matter data caps. Don't keep people from. From doing things at the same time they keep people from using their data at other times. When congestion is less likely to occur, we're also at a time. When the pandemic is not over, and in fact, people need arguably unfettered. Internet access more than ever. Is this just bad timing I? Think probably what's happening is the companies are feeling a bottom line pinch as well and all of their business models are based on charging. People for more data. Use so giving away. Service without a data cap means there's less reason for somebody to upgrade to a larger package if that's how their business is created. If your ISP is built on this, you're making less money at a time. When the economy's bad, probably more people are canceling service, and you're looking for ways to bring in that money, so if they can quietly just let the data caps kick back in then that might help them whether the storm. We should say that at least you know. Comcast's CAP is one point two terabytes, which is a lot right. What would you have to do as a household to hit that cap? I don't have numbers. At the ready but you have to have a lot of people downloading A lot of things were streaming. A lot of you know high definition. Four K. video and honestly data caps. It's always in the best interests of ISP's to have data caps Behi- enough that they only affect a certain number of people. You want them to be high. Because you don't want to have people suddenly decide will. This is unusable right and you don't want to have public backlash saying I keep running into this data cap I can't even use it to watch Netflix. Et Cetera, because he is, he's no that that people are using their internet to to watch streaming video to do high bandwidth applications so you WanNa? Keep it just high. High enough that you get the users that might be willing to pay to to pay for that. It also does have some uses in making it easier to go after the folks who do abuse the network and and run things on the network that it's not designed to do. like massive bitor and operations or or or cryptocurrency stuff without having to define them it makes it easier for enforcement, so so those two things are probably what's driving this and keeping folks happy means that that data cap needs to apply only to a minority of your customers.

YouTube TV vs. Sling TV: Which Streaming Service Is Better?

"I've been subscribing a YouTube TV about a year as a cable alternative that cost less than cable, TV and offers a way better experience, but youtube just announced a huge thirty percent price hike for the service, and I'm rather upset about it. As are many others as have been noted on social media, I'm Jefferson Graham let me fill you in on. Today's talking tech now. When it launched in twenty seventeen YouTube TV thirty five dollars a month, and gave you a host of cable channels more than enough as far as I was concerned, but way fewer the hundreds on cable. You know the ones we never watch. You didn't have to rent. Stupid. Cable boxes or DVR's everything was streaming, and that cloud dvr offered unlimited storage, not only that you could start a show on TV and watch the rest on your phone or tablet without missing a beat. But then youtube started adding more channels in upping the fee. Before the latest price hike, it'd ballooned up to fifty dollars monthly. Beginning July thirtieth for current subscribers, the TAB is now a whopping sixty five bucks. Youtube tried to soften the blow by announcing new channels like MTV and comedy central, but that does nothing for me. How about an option to stay at fifty dollars? Sands MTV because I don't want my MTV and like Trevor Noah, but I can live without comedy central to so as I mentioned. I'm rather upset. As, my friend Peter Chatty noted on twitter. All of the sudden Youtube TV is sounding an awful lot cable, which is why we got YouTube TV in the first place. So what are we going to do well? The cheapest option is to switch to sling TV which just announced that. If you sign up by August I, it will freeze pricing the thirty dollars monthly for twelve months good. But slaying doesn't have as many channels for instance no CBS or NBC local, so if you like to dvr shows on those networks, you'll have the spring for an external dvr. It's a lot of work. The Air TV model that sling sells for a hundred dollars requires an external, hard drive Ka Ching add another hundred dollars, or so, who live TV is fifty five dollars, but I don't believe for a minute that the rates are not going up soon. So I started shopping cable TV again I did some Internet searches and played around with the comcast and spectrum websites, which reminded me why left cable in the first place the come on raids started around sixty bucks in once you added in the equipment rental for Modem, TV boxes and DVR's plus all those fees, and you're now north of one hundred twenty five dollars so now youtube. TV doesn't seem so bad. I'm still furious. Google and I don't understand why the company can't cut slight viewers like me slack and offer them package with fewer channels. But. You know what I'm not going back to cable.

Cable boxes or DVR's everything was streaming, and that cloud dvr offered unlimited storage, not only that you could start a show on TV and watch the rest on your phone or tablet without missing a beat. But then youtube started adding more channels in upping the fee. Before the latest price hike, it'd ballooned up to fifty dollars monthly. Beginning July thirtieth for current subscribers. The TAB is now a whopping sixty five bucks. Youtube tried to soften the blow by announcing new channels like MTV and comedy central, but that does nothing for me. How about an option to stay at fifty dollars sands MTV because I don't want my MTV and I like Trevor Noah, but I can live without comedy central to so as I mentioned I'm rather upset. As my friend Peter Chatty noted on twitter all of the sudden youtube. TV is sounding an awful lot cable, which is why we got YouTube TV in the first place. So what are we going to do well? The cheapest option is to switch to sling TV, which just announced that? If you sign up by August I, it will freeze pricing the thirty dollars monthly for twelve months good. But slaying doesn't have as many channels for instance. No CBS or NBC local so if you like to dvr shows on those networks, you'll have the spring for an external dvr. It's a lot of work. The Air TV model that sling sells for a hundred dollars requires an external hard drive Ka. Ching add another hundred dollars, or so who live TV is fifty five dollars, but I don't believe for a minute that the rates are not going up soon. So I started shopping cable TV again, I did some Internet searches and played around with the comcast and spectrum websites, which reminded me why I left cable in the first place, the come on raids started around sixty bucks in once you added in the equipment rental for Modem TV boxes, and DVR's plus all those fees and you're now north of one hundred twenty five dollars so now. Youtube TV doesn't seem so bad. I'm still furious. Google and I don't understand why the company can't cut slight viewers like me slack and offer them package with fewer channels. But you know what I'm not going back to cable. How about you?

AT&T CEO John Stankey on the launch of the HBO Max streaming service

"Joe Kernan. Kicking things off with John. Thank you this morning on Squawk box. John Thanks for coming on today. It's great great to have you with us you me on. I know you have high hopes for. Hbo We all know HBO. Obviously it's synonymous with some of the greatest things ever on video. Obviously game of Thrones Sopranos etc. You WanNa take on Netflix. And I understand. I think that's interesting because I don't know whether it's true or not. But supposedly someone said maybe we should have some kind of alliance with Netflix's someone suggested that you and you said we want to crush Netflix's Adams John you want to replace net flicks or at least be a very potent competitor refrains US Navy. Some on what I would call not accurate reporting on the New York Times Are hellacious is going to multiple streaming services knowing forward in pretty consistent. I think if you look back over the last year of domain around my conversation that our goal frankly is not to be. Netflix's our goal is to be something different and there are other senior services are starting to show up on the market that clearly different ease for the customer. Hbo Mass is going to have a unique focus in a unique position with the customer in play our game. Our goal is at crush flights. Our goal is to make sure that we meet customer needs engaged every day household. Find something worthwhile in time with us. And that's what we're GONNA see foes I guess they didn't so that was in the New York Times but that was that was not accurate according to so that. That's not a quote from you that that's interesting Anyway but I I guess the reason I led with that John is that I think about net flicks and everything. That's there and from documentaries to movies to programming that they generate themselves. That is a big universe of things that they have how will HBO? Max and I just said you're not going to strive to be everything to all people but you probably do need to add some things to the offering to make it so attractive that people have it in addition to the other streaming services absolutely a clearly customer Nanna. What's current as from kind of traditional media through the pay TV bundle and general entertainment content coming into the streaming world has credible number of choices of what to do with their time and then he going all dynamics in the digital environment about France capabilities to good use generating content? Like there's no question. There's more choice after today than there ever has been in paradise choices. Feel Max Niece resolve needs on the customers. Says you know I'm looking for something? That is this particular need of where I stand right now at my mood or my family situation that it's the first thing you think about that. I can go and no one wanted to find something. That's curious down. Who in meaningful selection of high-quality is Gonna? Hit the mark for me in the consistency. That happening time and time again clearly. The a hallmark more for the bran and for the service. And that's what we believe where you will focus on a more carried. Orderly got such a talented team. It warned me be do dat curate in that fashion just doing it for the demo outstanding the entire family. And you point out that that it's it's not much difference in price from what people are paying for now with with. Hbo So you have done some surveys. And what you saw one out of five people might decide not not to go with with Max. But it's not not much of a difference between just converting what they have now into HBO. Max Oh you don't you. Don't see any churn in that respect a difference were selling at that price day with just the HBO product which is a product that has half as much content is what HBO. Max New Offering Margaret. So you twice content same price and I think if we're seeing all of us everybody who's in the streaming business utility matter fact increasing during these unfortunate moments going through right now at this pandemic that's increasing dramatically so the performance of house value arrive actually increasing as a result. So you know our job is to make sure. The customer finds the equation to be done that for over thirty million customers with a long period of time in our goal is to extend that out beyond the family. I think we've got a really strong probability Andrew John. It's great to see you this morning. And congratulations and good luck on the on. This launched the question. I have two questions. The biggest I think is a distribution question. Which is and. Maybe you can explain what's happened with the likes of comcast parent company of this network. Amazon and Roku which a stoically with been strong distribution partners for the HBO product but are not on board at least from what I understand at the moment with HBO. Max and what that does to your reach a Bra List and distributors who are working with us the traditional and the market is the pay TV. Marcus actually signed on going to carry four. They're going to be successful years with. Hp Amax just like they were HBO along the providers doing that. Frankly you mentioned your parent company I'm optimistic still opportunity for something to be on there. I suspect that there's an opportunity that need other pay. Tv providers are given the vast majority. The ECO system is a likely become interview just useful. Come her moving forward. I think the interesting dynamic you're alluding to is Roma who Amazon at this point elected mocked distributors. I got and I didn't expect first of all have distribution across the entire race. I think must be doing something rightist. Somebody believes now to be more in conflict with your business so I don't necessarily take a bad sign but I do find it a bit ironic when I think banning litigation heard prior to the Time Warner eighteen transaction closing the concern was about withholding content from traditional distributors. And what we have now. We actually have dynamic where we have. New Technology viewers individual H. Who are likely not student and I think that dynamic is an important one understanding shows fast. The market's moving how we got to respond to those changes. I just to follow up with one other question which relates to this which is speak to the marketing challenge which. I think there may be one in terms of getting people to download the APP because some of these cable operators aren't going to necessarily be carrying it as an on demand on the box if you will so so what has to happen given that you do have these multiple brands and getting people to understand that they need to actually go get this. Get this particular product. It's a good question this

Ecosystem Engineering

"Gave a little bit of descriptions early in your intros. But I'm really curious. How do you describe? What IS ECOSYSTEM? Engineering NF flakes. So I've my previous role. I was a manager also and interest netflix's have to do a lot of recruiting and I'd have to answer this question a lot. Like what do you do? And what is this an unusually posted by saying you ever go into a store costco someplace and you see the. Tv's for sale and on the box they have netflix on them. Netflix's already pre install on it or if you could buy a Roku already got netflix on their more comcast box you may or may not get it but if it does get loaded somehow. Netflix's getting on all these devices. How does that happen? What happens is there's a team at net flicks that makes the Netflix's player code and we package it up once a year and we call it the de k a software developers kit for the player and we might give it a name but every year we give it out to these partners in these partners are like Samsung L. G. Roku comcast of the world and they have to take it and make it work on their system. And so if you look at all the TV's out there and all the set top boxes you can see that you know they're different chipsets. There's different hardware. They probably have different compilers and compilers settings. They've God's maybe their own libraries that they have to do they have a different os on their TV. Every device out there. Basically a custom made device. And so how do you get those Netflix's player which looks pretty much the same once you start the APP whether it's on a Roku or a Samsung Smart TV or a cable set top box? How is it ended up at experiences? Pretty much universal. I would say in how that happens is there are other teams that work with these partners to make sure that AAA compiles and be that. It's good that doesn't crash We have a suite of tasks and Trevan helps with that that area. The part and my previous manager job was in area too. We don't let net Netflix. Go out or be sold or pre installed on and device unless we know that device is going to have good quality with it. I said it cheers. Cheers cheers cheers and how that happens. Is these partners. Have to run a whole bunch of tests and pass these tests and there's a a Cloud-based tests service that Netflix's made where they can take their device whether they're working in China or whether they're working in Japan or Korea or the US or anywhere in the world they plug it into Internet. They log into this cloud service and they can run tests and we can see these tests if they pass fail and so on so forth and was passed all these tests then it goes out into the field and people can buy them what people have them in their homes or they sign up for cable service and they get this box and they start net flakes. And if it's working great we can see the metrics remotely from here 'cause all these boxes and TV's are sending this logs all the time and if there's a problem we should be able to detect that and try to get it fixed so long story. Short Netflix's works with a whole bunch of other companies to get these apps working and what's out there are jobs not done. We have to make sure that it keeps working. And so that's where he may be a deluded to like. Qe which maybe you could explain. What the Kiwi Patrick. Is that your your teams looking at sure. So Kua we. Quality of experience cheers. Cheers kind of set. You up for that one. They are metrics that deal with how the APP appears to the user. So this would be. Things like is video smooth. Does it look like high. Bit Rate. So it looks like very high quality not just st but also hd for K. buffering a lot. Which hopefully it's not a re buffer is when you're watching in the middle of playback and there's this kind of spinner that appears on the screen where it's trying to load and it's ten percent twenty percent. Seventy five percent. Ninety nine percent starts playing again. It's probably because there's some interference on the network or there's a bug in the buffering on the device we want to keep all that buffering to a minimum so that when you start watching it smooth. There's no interruptions but it's not just limited to that if you have trouble starting the APP or if you're in the middle of the APP crashes or there's like network fluctuations where it goes high quality low quality too much on. These are all things that could be addressed usually on the device side and try to minimize those as much as possible wherever possible. Even things outside of the network that users network or the service provider's network lately. Yeah that's another one. I forgot about that one. The time it takes for you to press the button versus how long it takes to start the actual playback. Hopefully it's around four or five seconds but on some devices we see. It's as long as twenty seconds thirty seconds. That's something that could be fixed on a device. Hopefully I think that's always been something that I've actually been amazed at is just Michael. You paint the picture of the ecosystem of all the different TV devices. But when I think about it too is the Netflix. App is being built for something like a roku stick. It's a lower powered device. And then you have something lake the playstation four or Xbox at you can also play on. It has a lot bigger assessor. I think is really interesting. How you there's large ecosystem of devices that we are supporting and so I can imagine that becomes a lot more challenging in your world to to support all those different variables are those devices and especially when you think that every one of those devices basically a custom made device very few devices. Look or act exactly the same from the code perspective and so it's it's a challenge to make sure that when you start Netflix's whether on a fifteen dollars stick if you bought it on sale the way up to four hundred dollars playstation or even a three thousand dollar four K. SMART TV that the Netflix's experience is pretty universal. On all of them. You still log in the same. You still have your same catalog. He still are able to see and navigate through the you. I pretty much the same. It's pretty familiar despite that range and I think that's pretty

Following Trolls World Tour kerfuffle, AMC wont play Universal films

"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as map. Felony and Matt about three weeks ago. Universal put trolls world tour available on demand in the midst of this pandemic and this past week. Universal has been very celebratory about that that effort to do this and said that generated one hundred million dollars in premium video-on-demand P. B. O. D. And many people sort of took this to mean that. I think correctly universal likes this Jeff. Shell the head of NBC. Universal said this release demonstrated the viability of this approach to releasing films but the theater chains of the world the big ones like AMC. We're not happy because to them. This is an attack on their windows that the movie trolls would have a nice long theatrical run and make a lot of box office which they would split with the studios but nonetheless this is how they survive obviously and they're very challenge right now they immediately said we're not gonNA play any of your movies now that can't be a real threat but it shows the level of intensity around the decision that universal made. Yeah let's unpack this because there's a lot going on here yes. The theater chains were upset. Amc said No. We will not play any universal movie. Cinema world others have made kind of lesser statements. But in the same vein of this model will not stand so to speak. But it's this is such a unique situation that I really think that what Jeff Schell was doing was the opening salvo in a negotiation. This is a guy who came up through the comcast cable system. He has long been known to want to shorten the theatrical window. The window between when movies are in theaters and when they go to premium video On demand all the others and this is his opening shot he knows. This pandemic has caused a lot of upheaval. It allowed them to put this movie on demand and he wants to experiment more and he wants the theaters to come along and he knows that this is not going to end where they have placed their markers in the sand. It's going to me in negotiation and what he wants is a shortening of that window. Maybe cut the theaters in a little bit on some of that. Vod revenue. There's going to be a compromise in his view that will allow these studios to change the wind. Doing and all of this bluster is just a preamble to that negotiation in my opinion well and I think the picture that's painted here as you say. This is a unique situation in. They had this movie is quite expensive. You don't see them putting a however the next fast and furious movie or any of their really big budget movies are trying to put them on demand like this because the economics don't work. Universal may be more or less hostile to the theatrical window or some people think they really want to wipe out theaters. Which is crazy and would destroy the business as we know it. But you right now. They need that box office if they can get it back someday. When we're not in this. They had spent a lot of money on this movie. The other movies that you're seeing moved are tend to be less expensive. This one probably about ninety one hundred million they had spent thirty million or so just domestically to market in the United States so they have expenses associated with it that suggests that even though they have generated all this revenue they are not necessarily going to be rolling in money at all from this and probably will lose but he is making it sound successful because as you say he wants what he wants and that is his endgame to shorten the window so that they can get to these other. You know when you have a movie. That's played in theaters for a while. And you have to let them sit there and sit there and sit there after the big adspend and the display in theaters. You Wanna be able to get to the other stuff that you're selling these after theatrical windows on demand windows and the DVD's sales that's what they want to get to sooner while it's more fresh in people's minds so that would be the end game. And otherwise I think any other studio the idea of Doing this kind of thing with the none of them have done it with a big movie. Right and universal is not the only studio experimenting. And you see Warner Brothers. Do this with the Scooby Doo movie. You've seen some other announcements of direct to premium video on demand. And they like this because they get a way to salvage these movies at a time when there is no movie theaters and they get a larger percentage of the revenue than they would get if they had to split it fifty fifty with a theater. Yes but at the same time. They spent a great deal on this movie. It's very unclear what happened if it weren't a sequel. If it weren't something that they've spent all that money to advertise it's also unclear. How much money they will ring out of other revenue streams that normally. Follow if this is you know the way they're going to go forward like normally they get the anticipate certain amount of money if it ran in theaters in this case is is that reduced because they ran it on demand like this. All of this remains to be seen a matinee will be watching. Thank you matt thank you. That's Matt Bellamy Former editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one.

"comcast" Discussed on MarketFoolery

"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.

"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.
