"Did it take this song for a great actor to find the right role? And he answers it. That's what the piece is about. It's like, oh, because this guy was kind of a maniac method actor. And sometimes you have to find the right part at the right point of your career and he knows it's the right part. I said, when the house and I did our 25 favorite succession characters for the prestige pod, I said, I thought it was the best performance on an HBO show since gandolfini. For strong performance as Kendall, I think is the best thing I've seen on cable, prestige TV in 15 years. I think he's that good. I think the nuance and the stuff that he's done. And it makes sense that the line seemed a little blurred for him in real life versus Kendall, like he's immersed in that character. I almost I read that piece and I wonder like, can he come out of this? What's his next role? She's just going to be, you know, a DA and some John Griffin book. I don't know how he comes out of this. I think he's just going to be Kendall. Needs to be really hard to come out of it. Because when he's doing the answers in the piece, I mean, there's one part where they're at some. He's got a place overseas where his wife is from. Yeah. And there are some seaside little villa and these guys recognize him from a Guy Ritchie film that he didn't like, and they were like, hey, you know, from whatever, he was like, oh, and then the guy doing the piece, show me says, you know, for reasons he wouldn't get into. He said he didn't enjoy the movie. And you can just see Kendall going. Like,.

"Like I think in the book points out, like, you know, John ham could say, Jesus, and he gets a Christ, but I can't say Jesus Christ. HBO, anything goes, as you saw. So was that was that a sort of a turning point when mad men and breaking bend didn't Breaking Bad. We're not HBO shows, which everyone thought they would be based on what they are. I mean, look, first of all, you can't bout a thousand. The circumstances for each of those shows not beyond HBO were different. I would go to another example, which is particularly formidable in terms of House of Cards. So House of Cards, HBO was interested in, they're ready to do a pilot. And then all of a sudden, David Fincher gets a two year season commitment from Netflix. And that, I think, is the moment where you realize, okay, wait a second. The world is shaking under our feet. This is a whole new dynamic. We're not in Kansas anymore. And I think that that I think that was important. And I would add a fourth to the list, which is that the producers and the great Peter Morgan came to HBO first with The Crown. They thought that HBO was the natural place for it. They wanted to be there. It wound up being a disastrous meeting for a variety of reasons. That went to Netflix as well. So you start to see, I mean, look, Netflix is always had some advantages. They're going to spend a lot more money. They don't have to show profits like HBO does. But I think that when you start to look, can you imagine how House of Cards and The Crown not on Netflix but on HBO?.

"He's better know, he's best known as a comic actor, 'cause he's done more comedic work, but I don't know if you've ever seen devs or some of the other stuff that he's done he's also. He's actually a very good dramatic actor. So I can see him being good in this. It's been so long since I played the first last of us. Who is the bell character? I don't remember Bill. Who is that? Is the guy who, if I remember correctly, my memory is terrible right now. But you go into your he's a friend basically. He starts off being a friend, but like you help him out in the garage and a guy with a truck basically is how he's remembered he's like out just outside of town kind of like scavenging stuff like that and then you go to him and it's like it's an awkward moment because he's he presents himself as sympathetic and he wants to help you, but then the realities of the world force a betrayal. He's the one I think he catches you in the trap that has you strings you up into the air when you go into his garage. But he's an interesting character. I think that's the right guy. My memory of the first last of us beats a kind of like all over the place. Like I said, he's really good. Again, most people who know Nick Offerman know him better for his comedy stuff, which is also great. But like I said, he's done some really good dramatic roles. I think you'll be good. Yeah, he's waiting. I think he doesn't betray you either just kind of like an awkward not awkward moment with like a his story is one that sticks with you. Yeah, I'm trying not to. I think he's that character that ends up being like the world has been. He's one of the characters used to illustrate how the world can make good people turn good, nook, can good people, but like hurt good people and make them do things that are unfortunate. He helps you out. And I think that often is a great character an actor for that. Because he does have that kind of Bill has that friendly welcoming kind of personality, but also quite the dramatic part of Offerman's acting ability will definitely give him that edge that he needs to be the paranoid like the world sucks. And I've set up traps everywhere. I'm scared of everything. If you know what I mean. Do not send anything to your wrong about my recollection of Bill. I made it up clear upfront that I don't remember that. Well, which upcoming video game TV show are you more excited about? The last of us or the halo TV show. I'm more confident in the last of us purely because it's HBO, Craig mazin, who did Chernobyl. I haven't seen Chernobyl, but I've heard he's amazing. I've been meaning to watch it. So I think that that one. And also like the halo one has been floating around in like a weird limbo for a long enough that I'm like, is that gonna be good? I'm sure. I'm sure it has a good chance. But who knows? Yeah, there's a chance. I feel like I've never seen anything non halo game related. Other than the books, but I don't read every single one of them. That has been amazing and blew me away. If you know what I mean, maybe there is the room for it. What about you, Gary? You know, I think both, I mean, both of them are last of us has got a very, very good pedigree, creatively. Good people working on it comes from it's very, very strong source material. They're working from. I do think they have an interesting challenge in that everyone who's coming to it having played the game already knows the basics of the story. And I'm not saying it's not but like the quote unquote kind of shocking things that happen at the end. Unless they've drastically changed those aren't going to be that surprising to people. We know what the ending what he does at the end and what the big deal is. So it'll be interesting to see how much they it's an interesting kind of line to draw between like we want to stay faithful to the story, but we don't want it to seem too familiar. Yeah, we saw this in the game for people that know the game. But there's two different audiences. A lot of people will be watching never played the game. So they kind of have to kind of please to audiences. The halo show, I can't say too much, but I've got good reason to believe it's going to be very good. Oh, amazing. That's good to know. I would love to have a good halo. I think that's the next frontier for a lot of these licensed or tying opportunities like video games shows. And I hope to see more of them. I would love to see more of franchises from the video game world adapted. Because I just feel like they make for better adaptions into TV serialized TV shows than movies. I hope that the industry and entertainment education where the market is right now. It's almost impossible to get movies in a TV show. It's much much easier. Yeah. Hopefully we see more of that. Before we get into our next story,.

"I mean, when you think about it, look at Succession. I mean, they're still doing it because there's two things about succession that scream out. One is there's no one that you fucking like. There's no one that you admire that you want to hang out with that you want to be. I mean, so much of television is aspirational, right? Yeah. But like, who on no offense against any of them, but who do you want to hang out with on a Sunday afternoon and have them over to brunch and just take a deep breath with? No one. And the second is that when they decided to do the show, Casey boys who runs content and is really smart. Says, we don't need a star. We believe in the material. We believe in the writing. We believe in this concept. We don't need to camouflage it or hedge our bets by trying to get Jennifer Aniston to play shit for, you know, whatever it might be. And both of those are two big power moves. Another thing I loved in the book about The Sopranos, you go into great detail about the pine barrens episode, which there was a lot of great, great information in there. And how about the fact I learned this in James book, they had not planned for the snow when they did all the rehearsals and the scout of the location. They were supposed to be in the Woods. And then there was a snowstorm and they had to incorporate it basically. And how much of a factor did the snow play ends up playing in that episode? That is an amazing twist of fate right there. It's just fantastic. You know, Jeffrey katzenberg, when he was at Disney, he said this rule that the audience doesn't like snow. And I think that for a long time, there weren't a lot of there weren't a lot of movies set in snow. He just, you know, he had his reasons. But I can't look at that episode and think, you know, what would have been like without. I mean, obviously it still would have been a great show. And it was written beautifully, Steve Buscemi, direct. I mean, you can go on and on. But the snow, each one of them talk about the fact that this is okay. And they weren't going to back down. In fact, I mean, it led to some of pi parents, obviously you know this, but you talk about the Sopranos ability, that shows ability to combine fear, drama, and humor. It's unbelievable. Yeah. Oh yeah. Yeah. And a great nugget too that I learned in the book. As a viewer, you think the whole episode is shot there in the Woods, but the scene where Pauly and Christopher and the van eat and the catch up, that's shot on a sound stage because they had to worry about lighting and darkness and all that. So I loved learning about that episode in the book with those. Now here's what's I find this interesting, the flip side of that. Sopranos tested poorly, HBO basically said screw the testing. We're putting it on. Many, many years later, Lisa Kudrow, after friends get to show called come back..

"On HBO and our lives. And so one of the things that I tried to do was try to explain who they are, tried to explain some of the chaos that was going on and some of the incredible, incredible, great moves that were going on behind the scenes at HBO. And especially with Game of Thrones and others and show people that it's an iceberg. You know, for what everything you see on a Sunday Night, there's a whole lot of shit going on underneath the water. Yeah. And it was a lot of shit with the Larry Sanders show. That's for sure. Well, that's the thing. I mean, Larry was crazy. I mean, you know, and it's great to have people like Peter toland who's a wonderful writer and obviously Judd Apatow and others talk about Gary's neuroses. Gary, Shannon himself didn't shy away from his talking about his neuroses. But I think it was important to try and place it in the context of the show. If you're trying to get a show out every single week, and this is who's at the center of it. And this is some of his demons. And this is some of his the way he's overextended and the way it's manifesting itself post in terms of the workload and his own health. You know, people talk about what he's kind of medicine he's taken in the kind of long days he's at. That to me is something I really want to dig into. It was interesting, too, because it was a thing in there about I guess someone was going to quote unquote expose Gary chant like drug problem, but it was ambien. And there is a whole thing in the book about James Gandolfini did have a drug and alcohol problem. There was an intervention. And it seemed for the two of them, the pressure of constantly having to do that show every year. Really got to them, especially for James Gandolfini, you had to get into the Tony Soprano character and it wore him down. Then you have the flip side, which is Larry David, which HBO basically told Larry, you do the show whenever you want. You want to take one year row of two years old, three years old, you know, it's the dichotomy there. I thought it was very interesting between Larry Gary Shannon and James Gandolfini and then Larry David in the sort of how they handled the shows. So the truth is, I mean, look, acting is difficult and great active is even harder. But you bring yourself with you. You know, you can't. It's not like when you go on a set, you're obviously becoming another character, but you're still the same human being inside. And one of the things I think that we saw with James Gandolfini was that he had a dark side to him that he knew about, even as a teenager and playing Tony Soprano, forced him to tap into that dark side. So it became incredibly debilitating for him. And it became very, very hard..

Sean Spicer Refuses to Admit Biden Won Election on Real Time With Bill Maher

"You know, I saw the other day, Sean Spicer was on with Bill Maher on his HBO program. I don't watch HBO. I was in a hotel and I saw it. And I was really amazed at how impressive Spicer was when he was he didn't bring it up, but Bill Maher in his just superlatively sneering way. He's really, you know, if a sneer could be perfected. He is asymptotically approaching the telos of sneering. And I have to say or the platonic form of sneering. He was pushing Sean Spicer trying to get him to say, of course, Biden was elected. And Spicer in a feisty way with facts was simply to sound reasonable. He wasn't even making any big claims. But what fascinated me was how the sneer carries the day. In other words, if you can get the audience to just go with you, looking at the facts is scary. Looking at the fact is scary. I mean, God forbid somebody like Bill Maher concluded like, hey, you know what? They have some kind of a point. There's something to talk about here. He would lose his career. I mean, it's just like any aristotelians who dared to look through Galileo's telescope like oops. You shouldn't have done that. You're gonna lose your job at the university of Padua.

Tucker Carlson's 'Patriot Purge' Documentary Draws Ire

"Tucker Carlson has the highest rated cable news to show in the country. And he is enormously successful. And he has a documentary that as you just heard is has compiled interviews with different participants, journalists, opinion makers, actual clips from Joe Biden, George W. Bush. I mean, this is what documentary filmmakers do. I don't hear anybody getting all hysterical over the documentary four hours at the capitol. That had a point of view that showed the siege of the capitol from a particular vantage point. For example, the filmmakers of that documentary that's occurring currently airing on HBO Max, it doesn't even show it shows Trump speaking at the capitol that day, and they edited out his remark that I know you'll be peacefully protest. Remember what he said that they never include? I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. They never include that, and they didn't do that at four hours of the capital. You know why? Because that doesn't

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason as everyone tries to get back to the way life used to be pre-pandemic, I've noticed a recent trend when it comes to movie advertising. And I don't know if you've seen it because it's pretty subtle. But as they talk about some of the movies that are available both on an app or on your cable box, and available in the theater at the same time, you'll always see an ad talking about you need to see this on the big screen because the movie companies want you to go back to the movie theater. They want you to watch it in the big screen because more people make money that way. I really noticed it over the weekend as my wife and I watched the many saints of Newark on our HBO Max app. Now of course we could have gone to the theater, but in all honesty, neither of us are still ready to go back to the theater, because I don't necessarily trust all the folks around me in Tennessee to wear a mask and do the right thing. So while I could have seen it on the big screen, it may have been cooler. I enjoyed it just as well in my 70 inch television set. And I know it's not quite the same thing as on a big screen movie, but it's kind of funny how we're trying to get people to go back to the theater when many of us aren't quite ready yet.

Ep 142: How Kindness and Community Empower Todays Nonprofit Leaders (with guest John Hoffman) - test

"Came to twenty twenty one kind of annoyed annoyed that nonprofit leaders and their remarkable heroics in twenty twenty didn't get the spotlight or the recognition. They deserved we all fussed. In twenty twenty about the dearth of leadership in our society. I think folks just looking in the wrong place overlooking leaders around this country who educate advocate feed the hungry provides shelter bring beauty through the arts lead congregations to help us keep the faith all of these people right here in front of our eyes. I see it every day and it makes me kind of angry that others don't or worse still. We talked about staff board. Volunteers of these nonprofits the backbone of our society we talk about these people as nice. Nice really rubs me the wrong way. It feels really pass to me now. Kindness is a word. I can brace but i don't know that i had ever spent that much time thinking about the distinction between the two until i watched a documentary on amazon prime the film. The antidote offered me an aha moment. And i just love a good moment is i learned that the reason i embrace the word kindness is that implies action it requires commitment and in this documentary. We see through stories. Beautifully told by my friend and six time emmy winner. John hoffman the kindness. M- may be thought of as something gentle but it has real strength. John says that kindness is a weapon for change. One of the heroes. He's spotlights in the film. Says quote kindness is a practice. Kindness is a stance end quote. And so today. I want you to meet my friend and john. He and i both know this to be true. Kindness may not be the ultimate antidote. And it's not actually something special you can drop into any community at any time and find it blossoming and you'll find those leaders who are practicing it every day. John's journey developing idea and bringing it to life is as instructive and as inspiring is the film. What's up. I feel lucky. Indeed to be able to introduce you to my friend.

Hvo when i created a nonprofit media company called the topic good projects and i was with the ceo of dignity house and their model is hello human kindness and i was having a very interesting conversation with him and senior leadership about the strong commitment as a nonprofit helped brighter kindness and our authentic was and i said would you ever consider doing the documentary becomes and lighting and that led to were conversation and eventually led just on that word to them giving principal funding for what became the antidote total editorial control.

"But also when you couldn't do the shows that you wanted to do because we couldn't produce them because of cova nineteen but you know more than a year. And they are they have forty seven million subscribers domestically. So that's hbo max combined with hbo. And i think as we may have discussed on previous podcasts. If you had an hbo subscription you got hbo max out of that. So that number is sort of is big by design right because there is that sort of people who are grandfathered in sort of But then internationally. They have sixty seven point five million global subscribers And and just late last month. At and t. Which presently owns warner media. Which owns anfield max. They actually raised their forecast and they said they expect that by the end of the year. They're going to have between seventy million and seventy-three million global subscribers to h hbo combined which is between three and depending on how you look at it between three and six million more than they had previously sort of estimated and previously told investors. So all of that is good news and signs that. They're sort of finding the footing that that they really wanted to to find. Right out the gate but you know these things take time like you can't just some services. Disney plus is kind of a prime example is able to go out the gate and like immediately have this huge impact. What a lot of these other services it takes time because there's so many shows there's so many movies there's so many services people aren't necessarily going to run to a service. They're going to go seek out a show that they hear about. And so i think that the hbo and hbo max content even able to put out on the service. You know in a little over years time is really helping. Lift those numbers and get them. That footing bet is really sort of necessary in this space which is as you probably. All know as consumers is very very crowded and sometimes overwhelming. When you're sort of sitting down and going what am i gonna watch. Oh gosh how. Many services am i paying for. And which one is this. Show that i'm trying to find. Is it actually on will remind us of the so the obviously has mentioned when. Hbo go hbo. What was the other one was. Hbo and hbo. now right. yes that was actually one of the worst. I miss steps. I guess i mean was when atrium max launch people were like wait a second how i already have. Hbo go on my phone already have hbo. Now what is hbo. Max do i do i get it. What is what's the difference.

"While you're on the go so the idea is that we've seen a number of podcasts. Actually have released in conjunction with some of the series that they have they had obviously the biggest one they probably did was the chernobyl one last year. But then they're also have had some podcasts for lovecraft country. They've had one. I think for raised by wolves. They're looking at expanding that even more so doing even more podcasts. For some of their original shows and the idea is that if the podcasts are on the hbo and you can actually listen to them. While you're on the go if you're driving and you hook up your phone to your car. You'll be able to listen to these podcasts. If you're on public transportation or however you're traveling you just pop in your headphones and you can eat instantaneously here. The podcast more people will maybe use the hbo max app on the go rather than having to only be able to use it while you're sitting in your living room watching the television and that's not to say that obviously people aren't using each max out on the go but this is kind of like the reverse of what qube was trying to accomplish queries intent. Was everybody on. The go would be watching this but not in every situation. Would you be able to stare at a screen israel. Max is trying to utilize the idea of how to use that time when you're not able to really absorb a visual medium. And how can you still connect with your subscribers in the podcasts are obviously a very important way of doing that. Some of the other things that came up in this interview there was a number of movies that have actually just released to the service back on november. First there was actually over one hundred and seventy five movies that landed on the service. You're specifically asked how in the world there was such a big influx of movies and his. His response was very interesting. Said it's a couple of things first. Time warner had license out many titles for multiple years prior to the acquisition. At and t. Or eddie more and more every month as the rights to those titles come free second. We've had particularly strong response in films. We have an unparalleled movie collection and haven't been loud enough about that. So we're trying to add more films as we go with specifically means that response. Is that the movies on. The service are doing extremely well whether it be the ones that are licensed for hbo. And that are available on each max or the parts of the library that they already have. That's existing. They've been having a lot of success with the films probably more so than some of the other services out there specifically when you look at netflix. Netflix does have movies. They have play movies that they license they have you know. Obviously they have a selection of films that they've done that their originals. They don't have the ability to have this massive library..

"Was that the services great? It's well worth to fifteen dollars the issue. Issue, is that a just immoral originals which we know is coming, and you can't really blame them for it. Because of the current situation with the pandemic, but overall. It seemed like it was a very positive situation. They said they liked it. They appreciated that there was a wide range of content one of the really interesting things to come out of it. Which I think I mentioned last week. Week was one of the most popular series. The the of the originals was actually the looney tunes shorts were very very popular across multiple demographics, not just kids, and then the Elmo show was actually very highly ranked up there, too, at number two, and then that one was kind of going back and forth with love life, which is obviously not meant for kids, all which means love life is. Is Very popular amongst adults because the kids are going to be watching the other content, but when it comes to like the branching between looney tunes, shorts makes perfect sense to be more popular than a show specifically geared towards kids or show that specifically geared towards adults because it crosses into both of those demographics. So that was great. I I I've watched looney tunes shorts. They're great. They're basically. Basically taking the looney tunes back to the classic versions that we all grew up with and all no, no matter how old we are, because they all they've. They've always existed now. The counter to this entire argument is the investment analysts their review of it, and basically the consensus seemingly amongst all of the analysts. Is that it? It's not going great. It's failed, or it will fail because of. Of current situations or they say well, it's maybe not going to fail, but it all depends on whether or not they land Roku, Amazon, and now we just talked about the real quick Amazon so negative re bring that up, but I will say as far as the analysts go. I agree with them in the sense of it does not look great on paper for the launch one of the. The things I think a lot of analysts. They put a lot of stockings. Obviously numbers, which makes sense you look at Sensor Tower, the the APP downloads and things like that and the APP. Downloads were extremely low four H. Max. However, one of the things that I failed to see mentioned it a lot of different articles of talking about how low the numbers were was actually the fact that. Now was immediately converted into Hbo Max for HBO. Now subscribers, so if you subscribe to HBO now you woke up to an update took place on HBO now. which now just re skinned it teach feel Max and added that additional content in that's what happens so like all of the existing HBO now customers which I believe. Don't quote me on this by believe. It's about fifteen million customers. They're using HBO now. They immediately woke up and had the new version of HBO MAC. So it's not like that's changing because they're already paying the same amount of money and there's no. No reason not to just immediately convert them over obviously down the line. They WANNA. Get everybody who's on HBO now. To be on HBO MAC, so why not just re skin each now and move it over to Hbo Mex- that Makes Sense. The other problem is the numbers going back to the numbers of downloads had eighty thousand. Put it in comparison. Everybody of course was compared to Qube while when qube launched, Qube had three, hundred thousand, or they had a million within a week, and those are huge numbers when you compare it to Hbo Max Yes. It's obviously true. True, but the other thing is those numbers. Don't include numbers related to people viewing them on devices, not phones or APP.

"They most likely will some come to some sort of terms with HBO Max down the line, not necessarily next week, not necessarily next month. We don't know, but eventually they will probably one side. Will you know give some? And then the other side will accept the fact that they've given enough in. That'll be the end of it, and then they'll. They'll end up with the APPS within the services, but I think for the time being it's just. This is a show of. Power, we have the content. You don't have the content if HBO Matt if Amazon doesn't have this content for long enough, and they start to get some really big hits you could see people unsubscribe from the Amazon version and go straight over to the just HBO Max Standalone version, which allows them to get the content along with everything. They were already getting through Amazon, so it doesn't. It's a it's a unique situation, but it shows in a lot of ways the future of how these services are going to have to interact with each other. So for the longest time it was a cable channel having conflicts with the cable providers. Now we're in a situation where it's the streaming services having conflicts with the companies that are providing access to streaming services, and there's enough customers that are using those products to access the content. A can put a huge dent in the amount of subscribers. You potentially could have so. Yeah. Yeah, I mean I agree with you a lot about. The the fight between Amazon and each beer Max. I think I don't think one party is in the wrong I think there's one I a I personally agree with more, and that is. Hbo Max's but. From a business side I think both companies are doing what's best in their own interests and I pursue respect that I. I think in comparison to maybe Disney plus which is a good comparison in terms of all these different issues with Amazon the thing that with Disney pluses that they're not launching an ad supported. Version of their service in the future and HBO, we know HBO. Max is doing that, and that's why the data so important is not necessarily just for in-house original content I think that yes, has it makes a lot of shows now lessons to others, but in term when it comes to developing your own content. You do need that data so that you know k. like. Where should we go? Where should we move mom? NETFLIX's the king of that but I. think that's what makes this so interesting is that? Everyone knows that they are in the future. GonNa launch an ad supported and We know that Roku wants peace the ad money, but you know for ads. You need the data and you know HBO. Max wants that data necessarily for to to do to to give Zehnder to do. All the analysis indicate ads and show has to the right people. There's a lot of moving parts there in. That's why the data is so important, but for Amazon Sake employees. We've seen this in the retail side with Amazon is that they will? Sell other people's products take the data from their products and then make in-house products and competes directly with the other products that they're. They're selling platform like that's a discussion of that right or wrong is totally different, though the points that that's what they've done to part of their business playbook in I could see HBO Maxine a Little Bit Concern. Is that like use their platform in? They're going to get our data about our shows, and then creates shows based off of that data, and so I could see why that would be concerning, so you know I. I think that this is going to be resolved quickly I think personally the fight that I want to see resolved quicker is the Roku Hbo Max have a personal stake in that because up Roku, but even more so more people who watch content on Roku than than than fire devices, but this Amazon each max to speed. It's going to be resolved quickly. Emmy and most I don't see this going on within a month. Personally so just curious how it's going to I was to go down all right so like I said definitely check out the articles. Articles, the link is in the show. Notes will probably be hearing a lot more from the entertainment strategy guy in the near future because there's always new content coming out that he he's posting up so with all that being said there is a small group of trailers that have released over the past week.

It's the think maybe it's my opinion that they're gonNA throw all this stuff against the wall and see if it sticks And and in the article. Which if you haven't read it Kiko CENTRAL DOT COM. The the the article talks about the the brand confusion which. I think is a big part of why this is going to be a problem being hose. Let's say for my parents. My parents are going to hear. Hbo They're GonNa hear the HBO Name. And they're going to think. Sopranos and and game of thrones. And they're GONNA go don't care and they're going to think big subscription fee like HBO and that's going to be a huge market limited for a Lotta people putting it under the HBO Name But in fairness they had to because putting it under the at and T. Name would tie it up with the at and T. TV now which is to any tease by the way. Oh my God. That's twenty two years in a row but the at and T. TV now which used to be direct TV. Now Is its own disaster. And they don't want to tie it up with that so there's no winning on this stupid thing for them. I don't think yeah I agree. I agree pull up through Washington. Live video right now. And I'm showing the The article from central calm. But Yeah I don't to be honest again me personally. I I don't think that the the it's GonNa be feasible and again I would be honest with you. I Love I love Amazon. Prime love see all access is really been kind of its. Don't have Roy Big. Titles they had this one As a cartoon Politics Channel Call Tuning out the news. Roy Funny They're seen it. I have so. Cbs All access is theoretically one of our partners for the show. Even though I give them crap all the time they're still technically a partner and so I get ads all the time for this thing and I have very little idea what it is. It's pretty funny. It's pretty funny. I mean but as far as titles concern with there isn't that many I know star. Trek Ricard They were mentioning back in the day. Initially that Young Sheldon was going to be exclusively on there and then it was going to go on air on. Cbs So But need both But now with And now now now with. I'm just wondering why you know for me. I'm just GonNa go where the you know the standby but I'm not gonNA spend. Ira Bryson so are you have HBO? Max already included. So that's free for me but again also said also saying that are GonNa take away if you go and combined into. Hbo Max which you know. That's something that has to. It's going to hurt. Their pockets are becoming King Games. It's not all that worried about it. I think they're I think they're willing to do right now. What Netflix for. The last three years and that was lose money to create content and create branding so that they could get to their fifty percent original mark right. I think continues in a similar boat in addition to the money that they put out obviously to purchase Warner I think there were they want to..

"Customers coming over from that platforms that okay like you have a little bit of recognition of where things should be because it would be weird if telling each max can get all the stuff of HBO now in the Interface Is Different. That with three you off as a as a customer so that makes sense. Why the user interface is similar with some minor like color tweaks here and there I I get that from an engineering standpoint and if it already works like you don't need to reinvent the wheel. I think over time I agree. They do need to bring in more of the other partners. They have yet. I control and the DC universe like I get that they don't want to cannibalize those services but I think for the future. I think that's what customers are going to want to and the thing that they're going to have to make decisions of. How are they going to do that? And what's the fate of Control in DC UNIVERSE? So it's it's if you if you're paying fifteen dollars a month. I can see a large amount of customers really complain about that and really not force. Hbo's hand in like in a in a crazy but just make them think of okay. What is the best strategy going forward but for a first launch? Told him accents so from one? I'm hearing I'm excited about the service and excited to get it and get going. I'm watching content. It's that makes me excited. I'm curious what the first impressions will be from a tech websites like verge and whatnot and we'll definitely get those by the end of the week. And I'm I'm I'm I'm excited to come back next week. In to hear all the initial feedback can see what initial were with subscribers and people who signed up in trials and stuff like that so I'm excited for. Hbo Max I think it's going to be a great service and grit to come back next week in and discuss. How all the did you gotta be quitting my book so as to be quitting than. I'm happy agreed. Alright so with that being said Max is out if you are interested in subscribing fifteen dollars a month or you actually have the ability if you already. Hbo Subscriber You. There's a good chance of you probably can access access it for free through your providers currently have when we were talking about how could get on the Roku coups and stuff like that in the first x but there is a way I think we can get it Abba Roku so If you'd like Hulu or something one of those partners I think you can the Geisha Amax through this partners am i. Am I correct there? Yes you could you could have a Roku you could go into Hulu and then use it. Use mentioned that earlier so I just wanted to make sure that if you have one of these other services that does have a distribution deal like you to TV or Hulu. Then you can watch issue Max that way. That's probably how will be watching each Max until the the native. Hbo Max on the Roka comes out all right so with that being said that is going to wrap up this episode.

"The other thing worth noting that the hubs there is less hubs than there was originally they got rid of the TBS hub true TV HAUB TNT Hobday. These were hubs that they had shown in the previous interface back in October. But they weren't there now. They've kind of minimized it and just had select ones have cartoon network DC Sesame Street things like that where it's not as much but it's more it's more precise on what type of content you can expect to find scrolling through and looking at the content you can tell that they're certain content that will you can see. There are certain things that are. GonNa come and go. They have actually interestingly content. That's from Disney from universal that they clearly have have licensed because of deals that they have in place with. Hbo Having Content go through HBO itself. There are projects that are available on. Hbo Max that are currently not available on other services at the exact moment so the entire mighty ducks trilogy from Disney is not on Disney plus but it is in fact on HBO. Max The other part. That was interesting which did not expect because I didn't see this online prior to actually booting up the APP was that all the Harry Potter films are actually available on. Hbo Max and that was not something that was expected to happen right away did notice a couple of weeks ago when they had a trailer released for HBO Max. They showed the fantastic beasts crimes crimes of grin world which was the latest one and I just assumed well. Maybe that one's happening and going to be on there because it hasn't been out of theaters long enough but turns out. They must have cooked up some sort of deal with universal because all of the Harry Potter films are available and I did notice that the original fantastic beasts is not there but the crimes of Grin will is so. It's interesting because they clearly have some. They've worked out some licensing deals with certain wants. They've you're unfamiliar. Universal actually licensed. The entire Harry Potter Catalogue alone with Theme Park writes a couple years back and it was for a reported. Two hundred and fifty million dollars for the use of these films for not only the theme parks but also to air on like USA and Saifi those cable networks and then also on On NBC four select showing so the thing is paid insane amount of money to have the the ability to show these and at ease in fact. They're still airing on the channels. Because I know this because you can. You can watch them there occasionally on the sci-fi USA so the thing is they must have had some sort of deal in place where there was some sort of like loophole either with the streaming aspect of it where there was no way that peacock was going to able to stream the Harry Potter films on the service. Or there's going there was some sort of joint deal put in place because we know that war media hasn't had an issue with sharing the rights to things. Rick and Morty is not only going to be on. Hbo Max but also on Hulu The you know the they're not opposed to sharing rights when it comes to certain things so I overall I was pleased with what I saw each Max. I think some people expected it to be like a complete non stop shop for everything and I think that eventually will become that but I think that a lot of people are under estimating how big the Warner Library is and how much content is actually out there. The one thing that I find interesting was there. You know specifically I've heard comments about how there's not a lot of DC content and to be honest. There really isn't a whole ton of DC content. They have all the extent universe films other than man of Steel Justice League. He's actually leaving and at the end of June because it's going somewhere else for run but the weird thing about it is that they have obviously access to a ton of DC cartoons DC shows and while DC universe exists standalone streaming. Service in does have almost all of that content. That's missing you can tell that they're being very particular about what the bring over to the service to not cannibalize what. Dc Universe is so if you're looking for a lot of DC content. You're going to have to go get D.'s. Universe still because there's not everything out there just like the situation with crunchy roll. Crunchy roll has a ton more content. That what you're gonNA find in the crunchy roll section of HBO. Max and I think that over time that will grow but I will say this. There's lots of content. There's tons and tons of stuff every. Hbo Series is on there. There's an insane amount of content for people to check out to watch and overall the reviews have been great. They didn't experience really any technical issues that I found anybody talking about online. It was pretty seamless so I would say. Overall there launch was a success. I'm sure they want a specific set of numbers for you. Know to warrant calling US eight success but I think they did a great job. That's that's great. It's good to hear all that I will be getting Each Max in a few weeks. I'm doing a big move so I want to wait until then the big TV and to really enjoy everything. So that's what I'm waiting to get the service. I guess to give a little bit of rebuttal to a few of your comments. I think the reason why the user interface between HBO NOW. Susko whichever one you mentioned to be together but the previous HBO Online interface and the maximum face are similarities. Because they want a little bit of synergy from the people coming over from. Hbo Go Rush Now..

"You have to re downloaded that covers pretty much all the details. We didn't know going into it. But that's a super cool stuff. I mean especially the profiles how it took you know about a decade for Amazon prime or however long it was on prime video has been a thing to finally get profiles and stuff like that and I think that deal with the pins and making sure that you can't just switch profiles to get around like some parental locks and stuff like that our content restrictions is also kinda cool they have content restrictions. You know from the gate. That's also nice and it's a good selling point too because Hbo Max is like the next evolution of HBO if you want to think of it in that in that term in HBO is definitely got a connotation of it being very centered for adults. Not Family friendly is not the right word Because if if your family with just a just adults is fine. But it's not really gonNA meant for kids and so thinking of ways of security and making sure that content restrictions or put into place. I think that's really cool of HBO and that the they've already solved these problems now at launch and don't have to solve them as the key going so that's pretty cool to hear in Howell. Hbo Max Wants to be for the family in that they have put in at least some effort or good amount of effort to make sure that it is appropriate for all members of the family. Because when you first said that yeah you off the air is a guy got from kid and I was like. Whoa for kid like you put on his tablet. Then you're like yeah. They got like the profiles restrictions. And I'm like. Wow that is that is great just to hear just because there are so many who were worried that it wasn't going to be for the Family. They were smart about knowing that one because they marketed towards the entire family. They need to make sure that the other content isn't accessible. We've seen Disney plus doing some odd decisions with censoring certain aspects of movies and things like that covering up things or see gene things to be to appear differently when it comes to some of the content that they have and part of that has to do with the fact that the service is not designed for all ages. It's designed it's designed for all ages in the sense of they needed to be only for all ages and not specific league having content that reflects older audiences in any way shape or form and the thing is like while they're obviously exceptions to the rules because the marvel and the Star Wars Films. A lot of them are rated. Pg Thirteen so obviously. There's there's things there you can see hoax naked but in Thor Ragnarok but you can't see the Butt of the Mermaid in splash so I mean like it's some odd choices but whatever. The point is age bureau is a service. That's designed for the whole family. They wanted to be for all members of the family and the way they do that is by making sure that they can put the mature content of his meant for adults behind these parental control. So it's very smart that they. They made sure they did that. So I guess we'll talk about the launch so I downloaded it today. I subscribed and into right away. I will say that I had absolutely zero problems with any sort of setup installation have any issue. I have a Samsung Smart TV so it was available on there with no problem. It was obviously available on my. My phone is well android tablet also available the catch of courses that. I have a Roku on another television. The my children US and they have Amazon fire tablets which of course because of Roku and Amazon's the situation where that that's not gonNA happen right away but like I said I'm not worried about that. I'm can I'm sure it'll happen in the very near future. But for the meantime I will say that as far as the interface goes it was kind of interesting. Okay so for the longest time. I've been a cable subscriber and I typically would just record each shows and then watch them on my DDR. Well very soon here. I'm going to actually be cutting the cord and just having just being just subscribed to streaming services because I just don't have the time to watch a ton of content that's a cable in addition to the content that I'm already watching on streaming services so one of the things I've been doing is using the the DVR lot less my contract's up in like a couple of months. I'm just weeding out until the contracts of but in the meantime I've been using the APPS just to get more familiar with the APPS and understands I've and using. Hbo Go for basically any sort of HBO consumption. For the couple of months and I will say like. They're they're APP is very very standard. It's not it's not difficult to navigate. It's not difficult to find things. I will say if you know what you're looking for. It's a lot easier to find than just stumbling across it. The one thing that was very interesting. It was when I downloaded the HBO Max App on the Samsung TV. It is almost exactly the same interface as the previous goal. And I'm assuming. Hbo Now as Wells. They're their interface. It's the exact same. It's the biggest differences. The background is purple instead of black but outside of that it has the same kind of setup it has the seem has the same build as far as what it and features on not really seeing a whole lot of anything new in unique necessarily to the interface. The one thing that I did notice it was missing and I didn't really see the value in this in. The first place was back in October when they were actually showcasing the APP and showing the interface. One of the things that they showed was the ability to have celebrities that you recognize said Jess content that you could watch. Hbo Max for whatever reason they scrapped that or it's not happening now because it's not present at all. There's nothing in there. Showcasing any suggestions of what to watch based off of celebrities that you like and things like that and the other thing that's worth noting. Is that the endless. Scroll that you typically see Netflix. And a lot of other services. It's not there at all. There's no endless. Scroll at does have a finite ending which does lead you to think that there's not as much content as there is because they're not showing you everything that's available. They're showing you small collections of what's available here or there you can go in and search things and there's a ton of content. If you know what you're looking for you can find it..

"When you have to be more creative and you have to go out and sell shows to make a living you have to see to see something three steps ahead and not. Just what's put right in front of you and so I think that that has been helpful to me for sure. So when you're building a slave from scratch and you're essentially building a new brand which is what you're doing. Did you have an edict from Kevin Riley or Sarah in terms of? Here's how we wanted to feel and look or was it like we trust your instincts. Just get great shows because it seems like such a great of stuff. Yeah a little of both You Know Hbo Max Part of HBO. Max a big part of it is. Hbo and so our mandate is to figure out. Okay what do they do and then what can we do that complements? So we don't want to do things that overlap with HBO and then looking at their audience. Makeup it was okay. What don't they have so they have some kids and family but it's not a focus. So now we're it's a big focus for us. They don't tend to skew younger and while they're pretty balanced with men and women watching I would say they lean a little bit more male than female so for us really leaning into female and younger skewing content was key and And that was helpful and also they don't really do reality. Tv They do amazing documentaries But when it comes to lifestyle stuff and competition shows that's not what they do so looking for things that we could really you know go big with and and so that was that felt like something that we were all on the same page on from the beginning that Sarah and Kevin made very clear you know we we wanna you know we want to create our own identity And be broad but.

"You had on buck makes the correction with Magill and hall, and you and McGregor and Chris. Cooper. Yeah. In diane. We had a four what would like they had the we've talked about this before. But milch script money was essentially succession like five years before succession happy. And yet for whatever reason they had the patience and the foresight to say, this is worth pursuing and doing that. Now hearing companies throw a lot of money at genre. Play. They're doing it. All but they're all doing if they're doing it to chase. What HBO did in a in retrospect what? Now looks like a kind of methodical thoughtful curatorial HBO way, so interesting and even necessarily that sentimental about like the quote, unquote, traditional HBO experience. I think what I'm sentimental about. Or what I'm sort of? If I can concern troll a little bit is this. This is a podcast is this that we're going to get away from the possibility of something being special because everything is just gonna be a wave of contributing everything. Yeah. So if you are essentially saying that TNT h. Be oh, all these things. They're all part of like this package that you get from AT and T and that rather than making you wait. You know, nine months to see sharp objects. If the new season's done, they're gonna put it up. You know, it loses that I actually like stuck with sharp objects almost because it was an experience that I was having on a weekly basis in that fashion. You know, what I mean like there was there is a relationship. I have to HBO shows that I think is different than than one. I would have to Netflix show different than one. I would have to Amazon show where I can kinda check in check out as I want. Here's here's something to think about when when you keep that in mind, which that the three men running Warner media are arguably hugely arguably, but for the sake of this argument, I will argue it. The last three guys programmers to really either understand or celebrate or at least engage with the possibility of week-to-week broadcast network television. So those people are Jeff Zucker who runs CNN who runs the end and I have pensions about but regardless go to coffee shops. He was said, no, he was the guy who was supersizing everything he was running NBC and now. Yeah. And you know, regardless of what you think about his politics or ins or his instincts. He maximizes. He's super is everything he touches in sees where the trend lines are going and pushes everything as hard as he can towards it. Bob, green Blatt who I screamed for years because he didn't in my mind. Appreciate parks and recreation enough left not all takes winners. But in terms of the business. Wreck came out the other side. Yeah. But in but in the business is considered to be a very smart and savvy programmer hand took what was when NBC was at its lowest which was post sucker, honestly and took it from a laughing stock to reliably the number one network..
