Others will still watch their classic favorites because the messages of hope and redemption still apply here jerking moment or two, eh? So it's gonna be even more touching because it's reminding us of things the way they used to be, and we don't know when it's going to be that way again. A lot of annual traditions like traveling to see family will be broken. This year. But one thing that is helping is streaming services like Netflix that are allowing folks to watch movies with loved ones. Virtually some people will be doing that for me.

Fresh update on "netflix" discussed on Who? Weekly
"Which really meant they were against crimes against other people because it was really dangerous time a lot of people who spoke their minds for disappearing and endanger a climate for many years they try to help some people and got caught they snuck into the venezuelan embassy in santiago and class island after being in hiding for six months after finding people were looking for them. Know it's a very harrowing story. It's very cool anyway. So then he left and he kind of lived all over the world in san antonio whenever i think he ended up in los angeles the other person that the caller mentioned. We have talked about boyd. Hold on sorry. I bring up boyd holbrook sooner than later but like i want to say like never forget this but honestly forget it immediately. This is the number one thing you should forget that. He was engaged briefly to elizabeth olsen. Because they were in that movie together very good girls. Huge flop. Not very good where she was in she was alongside dakota fanning and he played this random. Hot guy that they fought over okay. We're talking about wagner. And it's like oh. He had to learn spanish to be pablo escobar eighty. What are these awards in. It's like pedroia has very interesting history and it's like what is there to know about boyd. Holbrook he used to be engaged to elizabeth. Also he's been another stuff but he but he would have in gone girl. He played a guy named jeff. But i already forgot who i saw somebody else. Who's jeff. yeah you know what else. He did what he was in the qube fugitive. He was the qube future. That's such a sad like he was liquidity. If you ask thing to like no. I know anyway anyway. Okay next call another netflix's call bobby medium time long time. I wonder if the impossible is maybe charting on netflix. Because of like a really affecting all mysteries episode about the synopsys in japan. I don't know if creditor reach i feel like the unsolved mysteries. We always talk lists netflix. And so maybe that's the connection people just go like saddam. He's and then that'd be watch more. I don't know in any case when don't belong and balloons that's so smart. It's gotta be this has to be. I didn't watch this episode of unsolved mysteries. I did it was so sad. That's why i skipped it. You said skip it. Because it's of the new drop of unsolved the first drop of unsolved. Okay you're being less polite than i'm being but i do love An intra okay again. Talking about netflix and intranet flicks connection. But i wonder because was this episode with an a tv show. It's not like it. Served you the impossible after that episode. It's just served you the next episode. But maybe it served you that after the full season of unsold or maybe it wasn't even serving. It was just google because what you do when you watch unsolved mysteries you google. And if you're googling soon nami the impossible's definitely going to come up as like the the major dramatization of that event so whether or not it was manually looking up stuff about the su- nami or if it was served i don't think is necessarily important just knowing that both of those things are on netflix. I think as is enough for me to say that's the reason that's it. I'm bobby unjust own. And i just thought to the story. The pit The fake brad pitt. Catfish and bad brad. Ticketing sued and fever dr sale. So i think i was sick or something. There was this girl and she was obsessed with One of the detroit good charlotte and goes joel and She was just like like her life is like in like she was not able to live because she was so obsessed with him and her mom brought her. Dr often fellows like listen weedy like got drill here to tell you the truth and like get caught two joel the video of him and he was like hey like totally understandably love good charlotte definitely see where you're coming from but we're never going to be together like i'm married to nicole. Regina wave is nicole children like it's just not going to happen for us. But i appreciate your and then like the video ends and dr phil and he was like would you have to say and it costs to her and she was just like a late. She's growing and she's like he knows who i am. Now i think definitely the same had base About this lady isn't doing brad pitt. She's like he knows who i am. Now if the ball is rolling like we're gonna get married so Yeah i think you're bringing out memory This just tickled me. Because i was like well. You have to find this clip. It was so it was impossible to find. I finally found the clip and it was someone recording their television in two thousand eight joel madden joel madden obsessed. It has one thousand nine hundred views. And it's dr phil just cuts to the video of joel. List it's not the greatest quality audio because again it's twelve years old and filmed with the old old camera filming a television but listen. Someone has a special message for you. Say dr phil robins hikers. Then i heard you're a big fan of me and my band. Good charlotte and i just wanna say. Thank you but trust me. I'm very boring boyfriend. I mean don't get me wrong. I was good guy. But when i'm home not out where you maybe see me working doing music up pretty boring. I'm online thing video games from surfing the internet. And i think that you would. You would probably actually like my newsweek less out at home. And i want you to death so be glad you're not my girlfriend. Glad but thank you for like interviews again. I hope you get through your relation successfully. And i'm rooting for you. I don't want to able you. But i do want you to watch that few times. Okay okay what she sitting there is like. I said my name sixty forty. But that's the thing is it's only encouraging her like. Does this help cure your obsession. And she's like now. Now he knows who i am no now as the caller said she is be after. This video. plays a weird thing is dr. phil did a weird performance with joel madden and the rest of good charlotte for jimmy. Kimmel years ago alerts. Good charlotte dr phil and you. Just get this weird video of them. Like performing together on the show and a tweet of dr phil sharing a photo of them onstage. Together in front of the american flag and dr phil tweets. I'm here to rock this bitch. It's really strange. So they have some sort of long connection dr phil and joel madden. Hate it okay. I personally hate it. Let's move on to questions. Gathering friends and family for thanksgiving might be challenging this year. It might be impossible. I know i'm not doing thanksgiving lindsay's not doing thanksgiving but nope but that doesn't mean we can't feel close with people same thing we'll go for christmas or whatever holidays you celebrate later this year.

Fresh update on "netflix" discussed on Rob Has a Podcast
"Okay christian let's see. We have these divided into a few different categories. And let me start off with something. Okay how about a this question service one from suzanne. Suzanne wants to know. How do you and emily decide. What movie to watch my boyfriend. And i also love watching movies together but we are often thwarted by our inability to select the movie from one of our many streaming services. This is a question that i ponder often and i feel like that i am very much paralyzed by the choices available that there was a good episode of The netflix series master of none where this topic was about about when the when you have unlimited choice. How do you make a selection. Oh this is a great question. I saw this. And i'm like you know that. That sounds just like me and emily actually. It's almost the running joke in our home that like will go onto a streaming service and i will. I will have remote. And i would just be skimming through movies and nothing white. It's exactly what i need. And if if there is all kinds of account noted my mind. But i'll keep searching. Then i'll forget about that. Thing that i that i thought might be a fun fun movie that we watch. So this really. I really relate to that so when the the the the problem of having too many choices this is a. I feel it too so the easiest way that i deal with any of this is actually when you have randomized selections. Okay oh so. I remember one time i literally more or less. Roll the dice at a on a computer and you know i pick a number between one in like a thousand or something and we picked a movie based on that i think otherwise you never would right and so we're this really works. Well is on like youtube. Where emily and i have really been real more into just finding new youtube channels recently. And we'll just leave the auto play on and might find something related to what we like account always but that's what that's what we'll do so a lot letting take getting off. Some of the control is one way to have a selection made. Yeah that's very interesting. Because i feel like that. That has always been a thing with music of like okay. Here are all the songs that i like. And then shuffle go ahead. I don't want to have to decide what song i'm gonna listen to next. Here's all the songs i like. You pick That's interesting to have that assigned to movies. And there's a american robots is been t- modest three minutes mortgage realize. This is something that actually we have to do with in algorithms and robotics a lot to that you know if you put in front of me rob like a bunch of movies and i'm like odds are just going to gravitate to the same one. I like over and over again. I'm not afraid to rewatch things i i. That's my habits i like. Here's the thing i really love. I'll go to that. And you know. And it gives me some joy and i know it's going to some afraid of that uncertainty. That this new thing. I might not like so much and so i actually need to force myself to get more variety. It's the same thing in in in algorithms that when you give like a if you had.

Review: The Crown Season 4
"Let's move on onto the crown. It's been about ten days most people who loved the crowd. I think we're done with the season. Sadly one of the season five do you know now for two years. Yeah because they filmed the two seasons together together usually with the cast. Because i think it's easier on production and then also with the cova of it all. I don't know when they will be able to start production so that there was a two year break between seasons two and three and i think there'll be more to your break. Who will you miss the most which actor being extremely honest. It's going to be joshua crowder for. I really am what a monster charles becomes in the second half of season four. And what an effect josh o'connor still has me. It's really quite something. I said this via text by the scene episode austrailia when they do the kind of the ballroom dance for the show which is a real event. I've seen a lot of side. By sides of the they got the close. Perfectly matched was so charming. I don't understand why all men don't learn how to dance ballroom dance because it was like ninety seconds and i'm sold completely infatuated. He can do whatever just absolutely despicable entitled selfish things. He wants to do for the rest of the season. And i'm like oh but this guy really charming. It's it's pretty sad. What happened with him and his family. Don't you think how about the australia episode again. Catch the chris ryan on the watch. Yes i thought it was effective. My i don't wanna say my struggle. Let me just say season for masterpiece. Love the show love all four seasons. Great great television will watch again. Can't wait it. This is a show about the crown. And honor show about princess diana and i know that intellectually but i hid obviously been waiting for the diana's season my whole life that sometimes i wanted a little bit more diana or just like there is a lot more to be told obviously it would be told from her perspective and it would just be a different show so i i hate criticism when they're like the show. Were another show. The australia episode was. I thought a very well done like condensation of the entire diana phenomenon into one also and in reality that like happened over a span of years and the up stage effect and everything that they kinda that they illustrate was was very real but develops over time. And it's like the media plays more of a role. And i think there is like a lot more stuff between charles and diana and you know there's all this stuff with What's going on with diana and her believe me and her family is shown and handled pretty sensitively but not always developed from her side. If that makes any sense yeah. I think if you also you read about her her mental health struggles were like it. Very extensive and it was went beyond believe me and i thought that like it was handled well but also like i think it's worth noting that there is also many other episodes throughout her life or at least heard adult life. Yeah exactly and i understand why because they are as loop says in the very last scene of the season. This is a show about one woman. And it's not diana it's about elizabeth and it's about that institution so and you could do one hundred episodes of the eighties in the uk. Like there's so much going on. So i understand the choices that they had to make narrative in order to fit it all in and i thought it did paint a like a pretty thorough picture. But i'm always gonna want more. I just really didn't care for her monologue on the plane about the baby. Not that i thought it was like. I'm not like she's wrong but i just thought that was like emigrants were seen. I was just like this is working for me. But i thought that the stuff with charles's was pretty good. Yeah i think. I continue to think. I'm a porn is like astonishing and i've been thinking a lot about what you said about how you're not a the huge a fan but that the performance kind of stuck out to you and i get and i think that that is really perceptive and for me kinda part of what makes it work. I don't want to say it's like intention early. But diana did not fit in to this family. It was like different energy. A different vibe. And there's a great line in the queen. Which is the peter morgan. movie about. Princess princess diana's death and the week after it. Which i recommend starring helen mirren great stuff as sort of like great crown prerequisite or if he also available on netflix. Right now justify But the character in the queen says you have to remember that there. Diana are diana or two completely different people. And i think the performance captures a lot of that and like the scene. Went diana's trying to hug the queen and they're they're talking at each other and it's not just that they have philosophical emotional differences but they just come from different worlds. they have different emotions different energies. It's like total total mismatch. And that's definitely part of the problem. So when she is making her stands are expressing her. Diana s. sometimes it's really heartbreaking and sometimes are like what are you doing. This is completely wrong as encapsulated that julia did not worry me about which i appreciate from spoiler episode perspective but from a personal perspective. The phantom of the opera video cassette was hilarious and excruciating and. I do think the first time. I like fully pulled the blanket up over my head when watching it. I didn't actually watch it. The first time i had to just kind of sit like that and know that it would end soon and then i read wound to watch the facial expressions that is bisciste. Yeah and i you know i don't. I don't think that happened in relaxed. Maybe it did. I've never read it. And i think i would remember it but really the billion joel performance israel israel. Yeah and it in caps elites. Maybe i think that poor diana who had a lot going on and as you said like a lot of mental health issues and believe me and didn't have any support like her family was not very helpful or totally absent in the case of the crown. But there were also some things that just really ideologies didn't align how about that and and that scene shows you why who it really is just like so much. I can't believe we're only gonna get one season about mc oran. I feel like i m not like her biggest fan but also feel like switching the diana character after one season. I don't. I'm not really in favor of but Must be a fairly significant time job. i'm curious to see how season five goes

Counting Briberies in Elections
"My name is nicholas vermont. I'm a second year student from your berlin and germany. Where i'm part of the research. Group makes in computational complexity led by professor. Well thank you so much for coming on the show. Could you tell us a little bit more about your phd work. What specific areas in complexity. Are you focused on. So i'm mostly working on questions. From the area of collective decision making and decision decision-making someone relative for different settings or scenario spare group of come together and have different than maybe conflicting opinions about assignments. And where we want to of find compromise alternative for not that makes everyone happy tour. Let's say fair extent and i am lies. Questions from this area from mostly yet stogie says complexity theoretical and algorithmic point of view. I'm aware that there are some aspects of multi agent systems that frame it in a game. Theoretic context may be decision theoretic approaches. Does that overlap. Or is that separate from your interest so we are not really doing mhm. Let's say close related to classical multi agent systems but. Interestingly kind of the work that i am doing this collective decision theory field. This summer became a sub field of mostly agent system. At least if you look at the conference with we published usually published multi agent system conferences and agents. System is are always Netflix which we have in mind. So a lot of these collective decision making scenarios also hidden in classically in some multi agent systems. Some of this as well highlighted in the main paper. I want to invite you on to discuss. Which is titled on the robustness of winners counting briberies in elections a lot of things to unpack there. I guess maybe this is the first time i ever had a bribery formalized a mathematical way. So could we start with that. How do we quantify bribery so when it comes to elections bribery is kind of a pretty natural and also white developments to problem and what we aim here for is the model that we have in mind is we have to get like and we have bribe who wants to achieve a second goal in the clintons election. It's usually win the election or preventing some from winning village. So this the golden that the bribery hasn't bribe knows kind of richly. And then we give the bribery typically a given budget. So let's say he's allowed to delete ten votes. And then the computational question that we have the mind is possible for the bribe's to pick like ten votes in the election smartly into delete them such that he achieved his goal for example making the candidate. It wouldn't be gotcha. So i'm you know we've just finished up an election my country here in the us. There was a republican and a democrat. Who were running an in many other people. If you very resource and could manipulate the elections may be you could have pulled it towards one of the two major party winners but if you had done enough manipulation third party One that would have been quite unprecedented by our country standards. How do we measure that distance. That i like. It's intuitively there. How can we quantify something like that. So this question. I told you about mind and you can also obviously ask for the minimum number of operations at the bribery needs. So if you have again election my goal and then the question is now how much budget to any any votes to to be able to enter to be able to delete to realize michael and if you do this for every can that separately you will like it for every candidate birth. I mean for the initially winning candidate. The number will be zero because he will have to change anything for all the other candidates. Have booby probably zero. Because i'm not initially winning and thereby also somehow discover ranking of the candidates. So this gives you a feeling for how far away someone is from winning or losing election with respect to the operations that you allowed so for example leading or acting or some to find the votes that well. Let's talk a little bit about the voting mechanics. Paper covers two different ways. That people might vote plurality and boorda voting could you go into how those systems operate and maybe in the context of those how this manipulation takes place so the two mechanisms we cover relative. Boorda both special case of so-called scoring based voting rolls. And the idea here in scoring based woods is that every voter is allowed to give points to candidates and in the candidate with the highest number of points wins the election and for example in property. I'm allowed to give one point my most preferred candidate so it's pretty simple. It's also typically how bellicosity simply mark your most preferred candidate in there but he gets a point from your vote. Border is a little bit more tricky by a border over. In the body election we tank the preference relation rankings albatross ranked the candidates s an input. And then we awards if we have any candidates are what n. Minus one points to the first candidates to the most preferred candidate in minus two points to the second most preferred candidate Three points the set must be for the end zone and as we accumulate the points even to the mall just by the candidates The candidate with the highest score simply winds
There Is Real Value In The 'Truthiness' Of Fictionalised History
"Fictionalized. History is essentially where you take something out of history and event or person and you sprinkle on a little bit of featuring a little bit of creative and poetic license if you like to try and make that story. More relatable more understandable more relevant to a modern audience perhaps and a great example of that would be some of these series. That you see on netflix or movies that you see on netflix. For example like the crown. Which is the story of the british royal family now. The current series has just recently launched. And it's cop the bit of flack for historical inaccuracies. And that's led to a conversation about the role of fictionalized history. Because in a way it's a lie. It's not a truth. But then the people who defend this version this autistic version is fictionalized of history. Will tell you that the truth is generally a failing nuance thing truth and reality of failing nuanced. And it's pretty hard to get those nuances across in maybe a ten episode series or two l. movie but by by adding a little creative round the story as low as it's true to the overall message it's actually a much better way to get that message across and to get a better understanding of the reality of history maybe the truth of history but the reality of history and it's something that i heard russell brand talking about today where he talked about the truthfulness which i think is a great would describe it because it's not strictly speaking. The truth is not the facts but it actually really is reality. Probably if it's done well and most people tend to say that this current series of the crown is still getting the overall message across. It's not necessarily the one hundred percent of the things that happened off. Factually correct about the truthfulness of it is still there. And i think the thing that they're coming across now is. The current series is about margaret thatcher. Times and princess diana's times which this people alive today still recall those events and so they poking holes in the history whereas the facts of the history whereas in previous episodes previous series. Sorry of the same show. They were talking so far back. That people weren't necessarily alive to question. So i think in a world of fake news. I think it's an interesting perspective. to think about. The truth innis of fictionalized history. Because if you really want to tell a story you've gotta get it relevant to today's audience. You've got to get the audience engaged. And i think a little bit of fiction around the facts is probably a good way to do it again. In light of the world the world of fake news that we live in that fake news era that has been created around us. I just think it's an interesting perspective on a friday.

"And then that's why i'm voting for now that's a that's going to be like. What the heck did we say. We just missed that cold cut. Sean so i i mentioned were talking mainly for forbes. We're gonna take this audio. Put it out as a cast as well and I want everyone who's listening and stuff to to know that this is kind of interesting. I mean i was just decided. I'm going to watch a documentary. While i'm on my treadmill and so choose brand new recommended for me net flicks versus the world on amazon prime which reading from imdb the story of how a tiny broke silicon valley startup slew giants of the movie rental world warded off amazon and forced movie making and distribution into the digital age. And i was blown away by it. And i mean like who made this thing and then i said who shone coffin and i want to make sure i don't forget so i i learn a little bit about you from your website. Texas movie director dot com. I then started stalking you on twitter. Where you're handle is dude versus movie. And that's a dude. Vs movie and i reached out and said hey man. I'm a fan from a couple of angles a the netflix's story but also what it's like to be an indie moviemaker these days. Do you wanna talk and you were nice enough to say yes. So welcome to the cast. Thanks for chatting for forbes. Thanks for having me. I mean when you reached out. Like i've i've actually used twitter to reach out to people that watch the movie. So it's it's interesting to talk to people from like south. Africa are vancouver or across the pond in england. Because you know as a you know Independent moviemaker here in austin texas outside of hollywood itself. It's it's cool to have your work seen around the world expr- especially when it was a. It was a tough hill to climb so to speak to get the film ned. Well we'll get more into that in a second but so how. How did you get into the movie making business. What's your back when you look like a pretty young guy so to have something like you know out there like this seems pretty. Cool my Camera must be doing good things for me. 'cause i'm i'm thirty seven i have Four children and they definitely make me look tired. all the No so i I went to i. I went to college here in austin at university of texas to become the next you know mcconnell. Hey no no. I'm a texan. So i wanted to university of texas to get a film degree in the graduated I worked on a few independent films. Here in austin and then started working for tv on a show called room raiders. The basically someone would go through three different rooms in based on that they would decide who they went on a date with So yes oh. That show ended up getting canceled. But i moved out to la. And i did a celebrity interviews and red carpets for a platform call cannot lose which is a european station and i worked for the spanish version of that and so i was out there in hollywood for bed and and most most people in la will attest to this. Like you're not going to own a house in l. a. Unless like you're like a millionaire. You're hitting a big. We decided although i loved l. a. in i loved what i did out in la. I wanted to move back to texas. I could actually own a house tonight. And i ended up back out here but i always had the desire to kind of a make movies and like i said before having poor children young girls madeta girls In my wife having a successful career herself documentary as is what you can do. Is you could go fly somewhere for a week. Flight home to be with the family and everything so That's that's what i did in the first movie i worked on. There is a couple of guys making a trying to raise money to make a documentary about nickelodeon. And i grew up in that nickelodeon like i loading kid like. I didn't have the disney channel nickelodeon so it was definitely something that i was like. Well i'm used to interview in celebrities in such such like that. So i can jump onto this project and help them because Interviewing people for movies. Like tom cruise and will smith and everything. I knew the nickelodeon people weren't going to be above that level. So i was are used to working with a high profile tile talent so i came on there I helped shoot. I helped edit. And i helped produce and then at the end of that. I was looking on the next project i wanted to do in the book and i don't. I don't read a lot. Because i'm always jumping from show to show or working on different cell for spending time with my family but i read this book. That's called netflix. That epic battle for america's eyeballs which gina keating wrote. And it was. it was about netflixing their origin. That would be a great documentary. So i reach out turn. I was like hey. I'm starting my next documentary. I would love to interview you. She said why Actually started my documentary Maybe we should team up. And so that's how the the movie started.

Less Ronnie our producers, etc piled, a newborn, took a drive down Hollywood's main drag. It's a traffic jam packed with billboards promoting new TV shows and movies. I've been covering the business of media for a long time, so I served as tour guide for this trip, but Ronnie is a data reporter who mainly writes about tech companies. She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not.

Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on.

The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix.

There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel. Let netflix's stream always rate movies from Sony and Disney so stars had created the service called Vong which nobody listening to this podcast is GonNa Remember, but there was a service before Netflix's.

Now whether it's a comedy or something that happens in a different world than than our current Earth World But I just started watching an Orthodox and that is a dark show at least in the very first few episodes. I heard it's great. I mean it's great so far but it is the first time that I feel like you know what I think I can handle this but otherwise I've been watching you know. Tv shows a Lake Net flicks sex education and HIGH FIDELITY ON. Hulu those kinds of things. That feel a little bit lighter but I think people are just watching. You know something I have noticed as I'm watching people talk about the fact that they've got all this time now to and they've gone through all their net and their board. I keep thinking everyone's different but I I feel like I got a lot less time like the work from home and help. The kids learn thing is is not out of blast So my time is quite limited. But again I'll claim some of that back eventually and I'm happy to be able to work. There is no discernible trend except people want to watch stuff. So you have shows like tiger king from Netflix. Doing really well. But you have a show called Spencer Spencer confidential. I think he was called which dumb Mark Wahlberg movie. That did really well. There is an ultra violent. Movie starring.

Like it's not a fun time for a lot of people and people are willing to watch that they will watch anything. I'd rather watch a movie like the half of it on Netflix. Which is just a complete delight being different in Italian. This is that no one expects you to be like them. I'm seventeen I live in Square Hamish with my dad. I guess I just never thought thought I need anyone else. You know what I do want to watch for. I don't know if you want.

"Responding to that by figuring out how to program differently how to structure themselves differently how to reach some of those people directly all that stuff is, is happening. And I've been sort of waiting for it to happen in predicting when it might happen and saying it's not going to happen for awhile. Now we're here. Okay. So this is the streaming services against the incumbents. Yes, and more broadly. Right. If just still, it's Facebook and Google net flicks. I mean, they're all competing for your time, and your eyeballs, they're all sort of playing in internet video to different degrees. So I don't write that much about Facebook video but Facebook itself. Right. It's still a competitor to all these things at Facebook video one day might be who's winning net flicks. The entire narrative is everyone is responding to Netflix slash Ken net flicks be stopped slash does. Netflix having to kill his. He'll slashes his Netflix. Finally going to have real competition from Disney if everyone is it positioned themselves, says the Netflix Keller are this is the response to net flix even if maybe that's not a hundred percent. True. That means Netflix is winning. Okay. And Disney is the most likely competitor. I mean Amazon seems to be done in a slightly different direction, yet, Amazon for a longtime seemed like the logical sort of Netflix competitor, now, Disney's the by far most obvious. Netflix, competitor, there's a side to that, where you can say, look, they're actually not a competitor there. Most people are going to have both services. That's true. But still Disney is one that is most sort of dramatically overhauled its strategy to sort of take on what Netflix has accomplished. Okay. And so give me give me what they have going for them. They've got a lot of like ten. Poll franchises and stuff. But what is the what's the challenge for them to be a real competitor to net flicks? The challenge for Disney's are starting at zero right.

"Of DVD's, but interest by introducing video on demand via the internet. Netflix grew as DVD sales from two thousand six to two thousand eleven. Think about this. This is a very brave thing to do. Here's a company that made all of its money in DVD rentals, sending them in the mail, having the foresight to say, you know what? Internet speeds for consumers are going up. Our costs are going down to stream video content. What if we move our company into the streaming service and away from the DVD, the physical hard copies? We think that's the way to go. Now I remember back then when they started making this move, and I didn't know what to think. And for a while, there was a tear where you could get both, and then they moved away from that words, either DVD or streaming. And I was in a conundrum because I really kinda was addicted to getting these things in the mail. But I thought, you know what? I'll I'm gonna try the on demand service only the online service only. And of course like everybody else. I never went back because it just it made way too much sense. Yeah. And I, it was incredibly because the two, the two businesses opponent from the fact that the seven content on not remotely alike the logistics around sending DVD's people demand is nothing like streaming a toll. No, an I remember everybody the ice by to when they announced they were going to do this was somewhat confused because it's it's, it's almost like you know, killing the golden goose. You make you money on DVD's and you say, we're not going to do that anymore, or we gonna move away from that, and we're going to move to some of these going to kill our business if it successful, and yet they pulled it off. And then of course, nowadays you look at Netflix and it's almost even like the they're streaming service second, but there are constant company I, yeah. Where removing TV studio. When you think of Netflix, you don't think I'm gonna go watch, you know, such and such movie Netflix, some people do that, but it's about the regional content on networks. That's what you get net flicks for. Yeah. And actually, I was surprised because I, we, we bought into net flicks only relatively recently. We, we've had an impromptu description for longtime. So we've been using Amazon.

"Streaming subscriptions tied together, but people who. Subscribed only to DVD's or only subscribe to the streaming service. They wouldn't have actually seen a price cut in this approach. However, the focus of this announcement was almost exclusively on the price jump for the people who had a joint account like the joint DVD and streaming services. And because of that, Netflix was getting a lot of bad press and customer complaints. So there was a new idea one that a lot of people inside Netflix did not like, but Reed Hastings was very gung ho on going forward with this idea. That idea was to split the two businesses apart and make the DVD side of net flicks its own company and calling it quick stir it would have its own internal corporate structure. It would have its own CEO. It would be free from the streaming business of Netflix, but that also meant. It, it would be a huge change to customers. It meant that the combined plan of DVD's and streaming would become more complicated. Each company would have to maintain its own cues and customer profiles. So if you wanted to have that that joint service of DVD's and streaming video, now you were going to have to have two accounts. You're gonna have a Netflix account and a quick stir account. You have to subscriptions to payments to different cues. If you were, let's say that you had a queue in your streaming service, and you had a queue in the DVD service. And it turns out one of the movies that's on your DVD list becomes available on streaming and you watch it and streaming, and then you're next DVD shows up and it happens to be the same movie. That would be a really frustrating experience, especially since it had originally both come from the same company. People were not happy. Netflix also was not very good at communicating why it was doing this in the first place. And the main reason. Season was to allow the DVD side to focus on delivering rentals with a deep library and do it officially in and with a prophet in mind. While the streaming side could dedicate more resources like time, energy and effort to building out its.

"Netflix ended up extricating itself out of this problem in two thousand fourteen, and that's when it was announced that it was going to pay Comcast for a direct connection from Netflix servers to Comcast's network. So they were no longer employing anyone else to become a content delivery network. They were essentially doing it themselves and paying Comcast for the privilege, but the bigger dispute. It reached something of resolution in two thousand fifteen. Just a short time before the FCC was to start hearing complaints under some new net neutrality rules rules which I should add have since been overturned by the most recent FCC leadership. So the mess keeps on going. Meanwhile, on the executive side over at Netflix Reed, Hastings was apparently becoming less approachable according to the book Netflix, which I have cited several times in these episodes. It was getting harder to change Hastings, mind about things. He would make up his mind on something and challenging. His ideas was becoming more and more difficult to do. Some of his top executives would leave around this time. They saw very little opportunity to grow at Netflix. They saw little indication that they would have a shot at leading the company themselves and figured that they pretty much achieved their goals that they set out to to do when they joined that flakes things like fighting off blockbuster or launching a digital video, you know service, those things had happened already. So rather than just sit around, they decide to leave and take on new challenges or even retire on November twenty second, two thousand ten. Netflix really showed off how it believed the streaming service was going to be. In the future. Because for the first time they would offer customers the option to subscribe to just the streaming part of net flicks is service without the requirement of having a DVD rental service on top of it because up to that point, it was an add on there was no just streaming option for the subscription..

"I should say because the the delivery was still in DVD format. So here's how it was going to work. In fact, here's how it did work. If you signed up for the service, then you could create a q. very similar to what you would do on Netflix of different movies you wanted to watch and based upon the level that you had subscribed to, you would get a number of DVD's from that queue sent to you. After you watched it, you can do one of two things. You could plop the the view DVD back into an envelope and mail it back to blockbuster, whereupon once it was processed, they would send you the next one on your list or you could actually take that DVD and return it to a blockbuster. Store, and if you return it to a blockbuster store that DVD would also act as if it were a free rental coupon, you could immediately rent any movie in that blockbuster store for free. And meanwhile, the blockbuster store would scan in your return, which would immediately indicate to the distribution center to send you the next movie on your queue. So Nali where you're getting a free rental that didn't have to be on your queue at all the next movie under cure. At least the next available movie on your accu- would then get sent to you. So this was a very attractive proposition. It was something that Netflix could not offer because they didn't have those brick and mortar stores, and blockbuster had that, you know, that was an established entrenched model for blockbuster. So this was an opportunity for blockbuster to really put the hurt on net flicks their service attracted more than two million customers in just a few. Short months, and it really posed another big threat to net flicks. Now, the problem for blockbuster was that the way they were pricing, this model was unsustainable. They could not do it indefinitely. They were losing money on every transaction, especially since these returned discs to the blockbuster stores.

"More servers in order to boost capacity, things were not going so hot over in the DVD storage, vault either. In fact, things were pretty chaotic. The laser printer they were using the printout addresses jammed the flurry of activity meant the DVD's soon got out of order and became much more difficult to track down specific discs. And every time the servers came back up, new orders would fly in. So the team was struggling to keep up by the end of the day that orders to send out more than five hundred disks to more than one hundred customers. And this was all done by hand and it was sometime around. Then they also realized, oh, shoot, the internet is always open. We can't close. It's not like from eight PM till six AM where we're shut down. So the sites still has to be active. It's still has to be up available even though we won't be completing anymore orders until the next day. That was a stark realization. They. Soon included a message during high capacity situations that read. Sorry, due to extreme opening week demand, the net flicks store may be slow helping or hindering things was that while Netflix was in development, the DVD player was a novelty right? That people very few people had them, but by the spring of nineteen ninety eight when Netflix was actually launching as a service, it was a different story. The price for DVD players had come down to about half of what they had been and DVD player. Sales were starting to outpace VCR sales. So on late nineteen Ninety-seven the potential customer base was small by spring of nineteen ninety eight that had changed. So it was kind of a right place right time scenario for Netflix movie studios were playing ball to as sales picked up studios began to release more of their libraries on DVD. Now they saw that there was a demand. And for this kind of home entertainment, and they saw the opportunity and they began to jump on that new titles and old became potential revenue generators and Netflix, which was protected by US president that had law that said, accompany can buy and then rent out movies that is totally. Fine by law. If you if you buy a product, you can rent that product out to other people. So Netflix was taking advantage by scooping up copies of as many different titles as it could building out its own library by August nineteen, ninety eight. Those initial five hundred titles were now closer to fifteen hundred and because VHS rental chains like Hollywood video and blockbuster were slow to adopt the DVD format. Netflix had a good running start on them as well. Those companies were so entrenched in the VHS world that the thought of switching lanes and moving to DVD's was really daunting it. It represented an enormous cost for them to be able to change formats like that. So Netflix because it had not been entrenched in another medium was at an advantage. So was not species beginning and we're just getting started. Now in our next episode will look. Look at how net flicks, whether the first year or two of his existence and how it started to come up against what would become its main rival for the first decade of Netflix says, existence as a company that being blockbuster, if you guys have suggestions for future episodes of tech stuff, whether it's a company, a technology, a person tech, whatever it may be, send me an Email.

"Flicks dot com. But as we all know, the eventual winner was Netflix dot com. Those the one that people, I guess objected to at least they, I don't know that there was anyone who is passionately advocating for the name, but there was no one who was in great opposition to it. And so that became the name of the company. There is no logo was in purple and white. It's easy. I forget that that was the case they the net flicks is branding is so so powerful. Now with the red and white scheme that it's easy to forget that originally was purple and white. It had an unspools reel of film as part of the logo design. The red and white color scheme would come much later. They brought on a guy named Corey bridges to work in customer development and bridges had previously worked for Netscape and help launch their internet browser bridges seem. Secretly reached out to influencers and Usenet groups because this was before stuff like YouTube and Instagram and other social media platforms. But he saw those folks in Usenet groups as being really passionate community members and by tapping into people who were really big users in Usenet groups that were focusing on film discussion and asking them if they would participate in a beta program that Netflix was going to hold. He got a lot of responses, especially when he said that they would be allowed to be the first people to write about this new service. Once it was raised lunch, the day would essentially have the scoop on everyone else and has promotional plan worked like gangbusters. They signed up eagerly to test out this service on April fourteenth nineteen ninety eight. The company was ready to go live. They had built up a library of DVD's and they attested the features with their beta testers. Reed Hastings who had provided the seed money had mainly stayed out of the actual development process while all of this creative work was going on. This was Mark Randolph's show for that initial few months setting up the company, but as did our arrive at the company and watch as they actually went online. So he was there on hand for launch day. In fact, the story goes that some of the other employees didn't even know who read Hastings was they had never even really chatted with him at this point. So while the team was working on Netflix, Hastings had actually gone back to pursue more graduate studies at Stanford. And here's one way that Netflix was a very different service when it first launched than it would become later on and why the story about Hastings and those late fees doesn't ring terribly true. Even before we heard about Mark Randolph's version of the story. When that flicks I went, live users didn't get to subscribe to rent films indefinitely and just.

That's how many original productions original co production rights the BBC or something. Yeah, that's what they're big on that. Like around the world, there are things that are called Netflix originals that's like, oh, no, that's like on AM over here. Yeah. But I mean, it seems like it's working for them. That's a great. They're definitely shows for Reed Hastings really working for them. They're definitely shows that. I think would have gone off the air way earlier if it weren't for that, that particular arrangement.

"And like the switch happened like quickly within months, like a like a switch like switch. The switch happened like swit-. Yeah. No is like all of a sudden everybody realize, oh, I can watch movies. I can watch streaming movies. I think twenty tens prior around Walli. I remember that twenty ten probably also around the time that. Like it's started getting integrated into some TV's, but the biggest thing was like twenty ten was around win the video game systems started supporting the streaming. So it was like, oh, all these people have systems. Interesting fact here. In twenty eleven like forty. Two percent of streams happened on computer that wasn't interested me. Twenty five percent of views happened on Nintendo. We thought we wasn't. Late to the game, you had to put in a disc into the we to make Netflix work early on because we had a we when we were living together and who will step back now is very confusing sentence. We had a, we what? What? What. You and I just didn't intendo entertain of you. Remember that I also call a house meeting when I got that streaming disc, Netflix just send us a disc that they never want back. And then we were very expensive box that we couldn't even watch the boondock saints that box. It's all about being this disc in waiting for that to load. And then watching it on the we hear, I do remember thinking it was weird when you're going to request that disk and then you're like putting a q. and it would take a while in my home recently wound up in Weird weird. like a killer's calling card or something mean was no. This is the one that we had like at the toes. Tim, I burn that disc years ago. Idea. Remember. Killed somebody or somebody's after me, hey, look, whatever you say, man. I remember thinking it was weird that that this came in like a regular Netflix container or envelope envelope, but they're gonna make new envelope. Never never have to send this back. Wow. World. What a world? Yeah. So I still definitely have a few Netflix DVD's that I reported as missing. And then like found later what they make you pay like twenty dollars for him or something. Right? No, usually they were like, no, no problem. Oh, missing in the mail? Yeah, I'd say no, I mailed. I gave them to the mailman I told him it was important to give them back to you. He didn't bring them back. Boy, I've had problems with him. Read read, you gotta believe me. I'm trying to do the right thing. I'm trying to get these TVs back. A lot of people wanna watch the boondock saints. I want them to one. I mainly Stewart's real real frigging can of worms with this guy. Another interesting fact that I read it was in twenty thirteen because I remember because I used to work for a video website and we ran into this problem. No, not pornography site, but a pornography related problem where we were unable. And so as Netflix, we later found out once we ran into problems to automatically share what people were watching on Facebook stinks and nobody wants to do of course. Well, this is like a little bit of a different time, but like Netflix wanted you to be able to be like, hey, I'm watching the boondock saints. I can post. Like we know and no does, so are we? But I don't want them to know that I'm watching Jade. Yeah, it's a real nut exactly. Look if somebody like Tim boondock saints who'll awesome next time I see him a high five situation. Yeah, Jade. I know what he's doing. Do you know why that was a legal, the sharing of, yeah, no, it was the the video Privacy Act of nineteen Eighty-eight because only Bono. No, maybe it was him.

"Net, flicks dot com. Yeah, movies delivered its old, redirect. Yes. So at one point they tried to make thing called quick Stor which was going to be at Titas and ten eleven? I think people were livid. Yes. So basically, this was Netflix. It always used to be. You got a DVD plan and then on top of that, you got the streaming. Now streaming started, what are we can say two thousand six, two thousand seven thousand seven. Documents. I was trying to look it up today. Recently they had they came out with a list of all the original streaming titles they had when they first lost. And like I remember the David Wayne movie, the ten was on there, and I was like, oh sweet. This is going to be a lot like independent releases and then like nothing else. And like nothing ever changed for like six months. And yeah, there were not new things on there and you could kinda watch it on your computer, but like he was still in the time. Whereas like you really need to tell me, you're going to stream movies, I can barely get this QuickTime movie. Not buffer every look. I'm still using the real player, my player, Microsoft silver light to get this work. And but then I remember we were roommates at the time and you're like there's a Netflix box for TV TV and art TV only I think you were like everybody. I've bought this net flicks Roku. That was the first Asian. The rookie right net flicks branded. Yeah, it had originally Netflix was going to make their own box and call the net flicks. So two things I, we were gonna make a Netflix spock's that like you would decide at night. What movie you wanted to see. Boondock saints and download it overnight and keep overnight. Yeah. Jesus Christ. Because it took so long. So it was like overnight. And then then you still have to commit to movie. Yeah. And then the next day we'll be ready for your girlfriend's like, I don't like this movie. I spent nine and a half hours downloading this watching the boondock saints. Yeah. Again. But then once YouTube took off, they were like, oh, there's an, you can stream movies instead of download them. So that's when they started their streaming thing, but they were originally gay, make Netflix box streaming box themselves, and then very wisely. They were like, like if we do this, like nobody else's going to like make a Netflix box because there to compete with us and nobody's going to want wanna do that because we could screw them over at any point. So they were the biggest investors integration. They were the biggest investors in Roku and Roku started. Like it wasn't. There wasn't like a subsidiary, but they were mostly owned by Netflix. Anna, what the deal is nowadays, business Steph, you wouldn't understand me and other guys. Steph we talk about if between talking about the mad magazine stuff. So they were going to do it that way, or they did do it that way. And that's how I don't know if you remember. But like, yeah, the Roku boxes, like the only way to watch Netflix on TV for like maybe six months and then out of nowhere. It was like, you can watch it on anything. I remember you were like roommate meeting and. Poor. We're like four of us living in one apartment. Yeah, I've bought this net flicks so we can watch these twelve streaming independent movies costs four hundred and fifty dollars. So everybody just leave one hundred twenty dollars..
