"To have multiple seasons and possible why we'll affect and buy a little for anyone who's listening is basically if I put out this show can I make it into a movie or secondary joke and I do merchandise kind of do a video game and I do all these different things you know as a theme park that leads to additional revenue that comes in based on this franchise. So Netflix wants to be there and this is always my question with the Netflix executives because you'll have people like Ted sarandos who's a co CEO say things like we want hits we don't want franchises. When that is just unabashedly untrue. Like we know they want franchises because they'll talk about trying to develop a flywheel effect in the same way that Disney NBCUniversal and paramount really have within their own franchises and Warner Brothers of course. And they can't develop it. The big question when Netflix going forward is if you're losing revenue and therefore your average revenue per user drops because people are canceling and therefore you're bringing in less money. You don't want to raise your debt necessarily. You're hitting positive cash flow. Like you're figuring out all those factors. But you have to spend $19 billion a year on content. The question is no longer what is this feeling for content spend, which is what it used to be a year and a half ago, two years ago, it was everyone has spent 8 billion 8 to $15 billion. The question is how much value long term can you derive from those investments that they effectively start paying for themselves? If we think about what marvel has become for Disney, marvel is still a very big investment, of course, across the board, but marvel also to an extent these for itself the ancillary revenue in terms of liking those characters for video games in terms of the park essentials that comes with it in terms of clothing, everything that comes from it is a really great addition. Netflix does not necessarily have that. Netflix wants to have it. And so I think this is the big question for them going forward. It is, how do you, why we spend your money? But also realizing like, hey, we're trying to be a four quadrant service. And for anyone listening, who's maybe interested without an entertainment for quadrant, literally just means, are you hitting above 25 and below 25? Are you hitting female and male?.

"Melissa Lee. Then we got this Disney stuff. It's unbelievable. They pull that, would it affect universal if the theme park if they pull that from the entire Orlando region, they pull the tax benefits from there or the? No, not this law is specific to where Walt Disney World is. Trying to figure out how I come down on this whole thing. Oh. And obviously, we work for common only kidding. We work for Comcast and NBCUniversal part of what Comcast owns, but we would never make any opinions based on anything selfish. Our allegiances. Yeah, exactly. I kid about that. But it's now become completely politicized. I know. What do you think of that, by the way? You got a libertarian governor that sticking his hands into corporate affairs. I don't know whether that really. Then you can't, on the other hand, at times, say, no corporations are we need to have the hands off approach. So I kind of understand that in this case. Corporations probably, if they want to tread into things like this, they are free to do so because they're free to do things that they want to do, right? If Disney gives a lot of money to candidates in Florida. They do. So this might just be a gesture on the part of desantis, as opposed to an actual thing that could happen. Oh no, I think it could happen. You think I could. You don't think it could happen? I don't know. They got the legislator to do it. Yeah. The problem is, for Disney, they're trapped there. And they really are trapped there. It's very unique situation. You can't just pick up Epcot and move it. You can't move it. You're stuck, but you can't start threatening to say, well, actually, we're gonna do this up in Montreal. But the Disney stakeholder, that truly is a wide range of who is a Disney stakeholder. Employees, people from all over the world that go down there. I mean, it's an important thing for Florida also. If there's a 100,000 employees away, it is. And their voters also. Their employee. But the truth is the truth is the people who are mad are people who are effectively trying to trying to politicize it. Well, I mean, once again, we're probably have people that are mad on both. Depending on where you come down on the whole issue, you would say that about the other side, probably. Right. But it has not it hasn't been a customer issue so far. How about that? Right. The parks are full. In Disney already has a they launched an ad supported streaming. They didn't think already. Yep, they were ahead of that. So they didn't have any sort of. And a much lower price. And as I said, I'm fine with it. And it's got a little thing. And I can see how much time I got to put in before it comes back. And it's never very long. It's not like swap box where there's like 8 minutes of, no, that's not true. Of what? Commercials. No..

Why It Matters That Twitter Has 'Poison Pill' Clause for Elon Musk

"Is that a for profit company would be deranged not to accept an offer. Much more valuable than what it's worth to sell the Elon Musk. Any businessman who actually just wants to make money would be enthusiastic about selling their company to Elon Musk. Instead, what's happening is the Twitter board has now put forward poison pill amendments. They're trying to do everything they possibly can to try and kill the deal with Elon Musk. Elon Musk is coming in with a $42 billion cash offer, and the board is coming up with every sort of argument they're doing mental calisthenics, if you will, to try to block the offer, that Elon Musk is put forward. Why would that be the case? The answer is right in front of us. It's because Twitter does not actually care about making money. Twitter is not a for profit vehicle. Instead, they are a regime megaphone and a censorship machine that camouflages is a for profit company. A for profit company would be much more interested in trying to get the maximum for their shareholders. Instead, what you have at Twitter's ideologues disguised as capitalists. You have people that are left wing activists that sit on the board of Twitter that almost own no shares collectively. Now, this is a very important point because if you're not dealing with a company and you take a step back, you say, well, all of a sudden, do market principles still apply to that company. You see, we have been led to believe that market principles drive all behavior. That people are going to want to get rich and make profit. And that is generally the case in most business transactions. The most business transactions and merger and acquisitions, you're dealing at the very end of it. Who's going to make money? Who's going to get paid and get them out of the deal? This has happened with some of the most famous merger and acquisitions, whether it be U.S. airways merging with American Airlines. The biggest merger and acquisition to the last decade, whether it be cell phone companies merging, whether it be Comcast and NBC merging into NBCUniversal. All these different types of merger and acquisition trends over the last 20 years usually it comes down to is okay, I need more money, buy me out of my deal. Maybe you can guarantee the debt and let's move on. That's what happens when you have companies dealing with companies, but Twitter is a different type of thing. It's not a company. It's never been a company by the start as a company. Some people might have got rich along the way. Jack Dorsey definitely made some money, but it changed as the type of thing it actually is in 2015 and 2016 and 17.

"Comcast NBCUniversal recently announced its fourth lift labs accelerator class If you're not familiar well the initiative identifies and funds early stage companies that are innovating in the digital content and connectivity space It's part of the mass media and entertainment giants effort to capture and nurture that startup spark within its own portfolio of businesses It also helps aspiring entrepreneurs to refine their processes and scale faster putting themselves in a position to provide solutions to partner needs It's really cool stuff to be quite honest Tim It's about the startups where content is going and Comcast wants a view into all of that Daniel Cohn is VP of startup engagement over at Comcast NBCUniversal Her team fits within the conglomerate strategic development unit Her gall well it's all about discovering and cultivating talent that she says is inventing the future Yeah so I'm just for a little context Startup engagement which includes less labs and sports jacket Comcast NBCU We sit within strategic development which essentially provides an early lens for future growth areas and our company And we bring together all parts of our company and Comcast and VC universal park picture sky and our broader family of brands to work side by side with strategically aligned global startups And it's really to drive a startup mindset back into our already innovative business to develop new startup partnerships with the earliest stage with companies that are inventing the future making customers and employees lives better And ultimately those are the people who are also making an impact and start communities in which we all live and work The common thread is that through these programs and collaborations we're all kind of spotting that potential disruption emerging technologies the new platforms edge opportunities and all together startups and our teams are gaining valuable insights and efficiencies alone So does that mean that every company that participates in the lift labs accelerator gets an investment from Comcast So every company in our accelerators they do get an investment But beyond the investment it's really about building the partnership with these early stage companies that are working in media entertainment connectivity or sports some are at the earliest stage They are seed stage companies And then we actually have programs like liftoff enterprise ready startups and our team really helps them to get enterprise ready We help them with business development go to market strategy how to pitch investors in some cases it's even how to deal with HR issues that they're having as they build their teams at the earliest stage Got to say I was reading about what you guys are up to It reminded me a few years ago I did a story with Johnson & Johnson They have something called J labs out on the West Coast and it's basically an accelerator BioTech incubator And it's just a space where companies individuals who are creating things in the healthcare science space medicine space come in get a little spot there but can work with the company really tap into the expertise and equipment of J&J but it gives J&J a window into the future and an ability to invest in it And it sounds like that's what you guys are doing on the media space I love talking about this because it gives you an idea of maybe what are going to be the trends the technologies content and so on and so forth media how we consume it going forward What should we be thinking about Danielle when we open up our eyes in terms of where this is all going And I know the folks at J labs may do an amazing job And we are similar in our approach The focus areas for us change all the time because they are based on trends that we're seeing both inside our company and outside We recently concluded our fourth program as you mentioned we had a demo day a couple of weeks ago And the two primary trends that we saw last year that led to this year's class one was in the future of work a reoccurring theme that everyone every listener is feeling really if you think about hybrid work collaboration tools So we've got a bunch of companies that came through last year's class in this year's class company called negi from Israel and mobile app that allows people who are deaf and hard of hearing to communicate via phone by converting speech to text and text to speech faster and more accurately than ever before Our teams actually using them for doing interviews with people who are hard of hearing Another company think confluent out of Paris

'Person of Interest' Author J. Warner Wallace Describes His New Book

"Person of interest is the book. Person of interest by J Warner Wallace. He is known as America's foremost cold case detective. Think about that. America's foremost cold case that kind of a big deal, J Warner Wallace, how did you get that title? Because there's a lot of cold case detectives out there. They are working at they're working hard. Who said that you were America's foremost cold case detective? Well, I'm sure they're actually I mean, just to be a big deal in your own mind is sometimes where you start, right? So that's a lot of it. I think part of it also comes from how many times I appeared on dateline, which is probably just by virtue of the fact that we're right down the road from NBCUniversal here in Los Angeles County. But I think I have been on dateline more than any other cold case detective. And so people start to think, well, yeah, you're the only one. No, there's tons of really good detectors out there who are probably even better than I am. But sometimes just ends up being the one who's the most publicized. Okay, so you're the best known cold case detective. If that. And you you've turned your attention as a cold case detective. To the Bible to Jesus, and how is this book person of interest, the new book, different from previous books? What do you do in this book? What do you try to do that you didn't do in the other books? Right. I actually think this is no other book. I mean, everyone likes to think that, right? But I think there's actually no other book that does this. So here's what we're doing in this book. I've got another book called case Christian where I'm looking at the gospels themselves. Are they reliable eyewitness accounts related to Jesus? That's considering everything inside the crime scene called the New Testament. This book rejects that, says no what pretend like all those have been destroyed. What would we know about Jesus outside the New Testament? And that's what this kind of book does. And I think what it does is it answers certain skeptical

"So they bought a franchise. They bought something that can self sustain that can create more content by itself Even before they run out. So that's what that is stores. You're basically buying a constantly. Yes you did by you know the original trilogy. You did by clone wars. Tv show you did by the old release of like the hawks and stuff like that. You bought a universe that could tell endless stories. And there's so many stories from the expanded universe that fans want to see and you could take elements of that incorporating itself so if you look at disney and look where they've been in how they've taken the steps to get from where they were to where they are now. They bought specific from franchises. That's how i look at disney. And it's a little bit different from other companies just since the disney did do so many different acquisitions in the content acquisitions. they're buying companies further their content in sometimes for the engineers. It's really it's it's for it's for content so if you were to take moral or or star wars or picks are away from like disney's accompanied yes disney plus suck as a service but they made these news hindsight. You probably say. I was a genius but They did this new these moose. Before he plus launched in it started out with the with the fantastic show the mandalorian that just got a whole lot of adults into the show and then you had the big staple of kids content that's what propelled the streaming service to move forward. I am very glad that the more content is being created right now because for a while there was a lot lacking in terms of adult content yet mandalorian end had hamilton than you waited for the next mandalorian season and so moral shows are necessary to keep the adult audience. If didn't have that. That'd be a big issue for disney. Plus now you could just replace it with other stores content or something like that but you just need something to fill the time gap. So that's why the marvel shows are important but really disney is built on different franchises. And that's what they've been acquiring over the past few years and that's kind of their business model. If you take any one of them out disney is going to be weaker disney plus would suffer so this kind of like a taking it wants to further of. Okay how would disney disney plus be took out kind of one of these big franchises acquisitions from over the years. All right so with that that is going to wrap up this episode of the streaming wars.

"I just don't understand why they can't just put down a peacock you know like if they were to do this in make everything you know other content go back onto streaming they get back the streaming rights to all the content is put on peacock and the just push peak peacock. You know you don't have to make another service called universal so yeah that's kind of interesting points there all right. So the roundup the episode. We're gonna read a listener question. They specifically said what is your opinion on marvel on disney plus because already one division and falcon. Winter soldier has been some of their biggest shows and way more is coming. This brings in loads of subscribers to disney. Plus do you think without marvel. Disney plus would not be as good and have as many subscribers. I ve very simple responsiveness. Which is i do believe that. Obviously marvel is driving people to subscribe to disney. Plus they are and there's going to be tons of more mobile content. i talked. I mentioned it earlier when we were talking about. Disney plus continent general. There's going to be a lot more content that comes from those. Those e franchises marvel's star wars pixar. Those key franchises that disney has basically acquired over the past twenty years. Because those are the things that are really bringing in more and more subscribers because they have the ability to basically take something that was you know like in some ways. A singular story star wars. You know you've got the first original trilogy from the seventies who resist telling the story. Yeah there was. Some there was a cartoon and there was a couple of tv specials or some films that were you know some side films and stuff that were made but for the most part it was telling a single story but the universe is so large that they can expand intel so many more stories when given the resources to do it and disney plus. A lot of ways is giving. Those places built their those franchises the ability to basically create larger stories on a smaller scale. Word they can expand the universe focus on so many. I mean obviously when there was that first initial push of marvel shows on netflix. Everybody was thrilled. The idea of these marble. Tv shows that were going to kind of build universe within marvel outside of the films while it didn't really connect to the films all that much. The idea of building this interconnect. The universe of shows now with the ability with disney plus to have the eric connected group of shows also tie into movies have them like basically referencing each other. it's huge. You're going to see the same thing with the star wars franchise. So do i think that specifically if marvel wasn't at disney disney plus would be big as it is. Yeah i do because honesty when you look at one division and falcon winter soldier. While they're both successful shows on the platform disney plus was successful for even having mortal shows. They were just had marvel films. You know they had a library of marvel films that were available on the service but they were still doing extremely well before the very first marvel show launched. I do believe that marvel will help. Disney plus continued to have to keep that churn down and that's has a lot to do with the fact that they have these huge popular franchises. They can basically in some ways. Mine them for as much as they want. As long as they've got good stories to tell me do a good job of producing the content based franchises that content will just keep flowing and flowing and flowing in a series gets old or stale. They can immediately just go to another corner of the universe. And i think that's gonna continue to help the service succeed well into the future..

"That might be what disney's planning on doing. Maybe disney's plan is to eventually. Once comcast is not in the picture with hulu. They can take care of you know integrating and all in having who lewis part of disney plus and that's still waiting for that deal to run out with comcast that could be the case but when it comes to comcast or nbc universal specifically going create another platform to have to to basically take it to the international markets. I think it's a horrible idea now. The end of the article specifically talks about how business insider suggested that they have other avenues of bringing more money in which is to keep their licensing deals just basically eliminating their licensing deals. We've heard this before there's a there's always this. This always comes up when it comes to the specific films and tv shows once you bring your content back in house in your licensing. Basically in house from the production company that created for the distributor that was originally the distributor for it. You're going to you know it's just more beneficial for you. You have more growth. Potentially the cost is less. We saw this with friends. Friends was on. Netflix was being licensed by net flicks. From warner brothers warner brothers. They wanted for their own service so they brought it over to hbo. Max big bang theory didn't have a streaming deal in place instead they came over to. Hbo max when each fuel max launched. We see this with the office. Peacock bringing the office in parks and rec back to their own service with peacock specifically so that they can have the content. And they're not they're foregoing the licensing deals of making these licensing fees that they get from having this content go elsewhere however this suggestion from business insider as well peacock. If they wanted to grow they could just make sure that their licensing deals they haven't placed with net flicks. Hbo max or hbo and obviously because of how that's all situated but they could end those deals and they could bring the content back to peacock. However i don't think. Nbc universal is big enough and has enough content to basically lose those licensing deals and not have the money coming in from them. I don't think that peacock especially without the ability to have an international reach. Has the it has the potential to be profitable to bring it. Let's also keep in mind that they've been spending money on sports rights to their trimming things out of what they have like. They're shutting down. Nbc sports network. They're going to be concentrating. Some of their efforts on other things they just brought on w network and spent an insane amount of money to bring all that stuff in the peacock. So i don't think it's such a great idea for them to do that. The other article that i linked to the show notes specifically about this is talking about how they could pull their content from other services. It's diving a little bit more into that focus but it has to do with the same thing. Universal movies are currently being licensed to netflix. And hbo and those those movies when they come out of theaters they go through their certain window of being available only at retailers on physical or digital methods than they end up either at netflix. Or hbo for for for a certain level of time and i distinctly remember during the investor summit..

"You could just have one service and just do a better job of bringing it either united states or elsewhere because you didn't pay for two different teams. You're probably have to deal with me. Starting another service. You have all the technical work to start another service even if the sharing the back catalogue at some points right. You've got to also if it's another streaming service in its own brand. You got to negotiate deals with not just you know peacock related content in you. Know making sure up his peacock but now making sure that stuff is going to be on this new streaming service in this just another organization. That's gotta work like the points. Why that's that's my thing. We haven't talked about this before the air. But i feel that the destiny just kind of at the same point of just. Why are they doing this. Why would they even entertain after being less than a year. Oh it's much another service win you just launched one. Let's see how it goes. Why change. I am in the exact same boat. I don't. i'm not seeing that. They shouldn't think about some way of expanding internationally in some way and i do agree that the universal name is obviously going to be much more well known than the peacock brand of nbc. But when you look at the comparison between like cbs all access and paramount switching over to paramount plus they added a lot of content that was available and other stations. They added content from nickelodeon because that was part of the viacom. Cbs merger that they had the able to add nickelodeon content they were able to add content from bt and comedy central mtv and all these other channels that they all the you know the part of that merger so cbs all exits for a significant amount of time. Let's be clear it was successful by itself and probably plateaued to a point where they realized it wasn't gonna go any bigger here in the united states so they decided they needed to make sure that they could get into international market. And that's why it rebranded but that service was around for a long time before it rebranded the idea of peacock potentially either standing alone is its own service them. Creating a brand new service specifically for the international market. Just doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I really really don't like the idea that disney did that was star specifically because instead of figuring out a way to incorporate the hulu content that the content is available on hulu here in the united states into disney plus to make it an all inclusive service that includes all this content that in most cases a lot of people are bundling together anyway instead of figuring that out they just say well we're going to focus that on the international market and let's be clear. I'm convinced that the whole reason behind that is to make sure that the cost or the the value of who does not rise over time because we all know that comcast has a specific deal in place to have disney out there. The remaining stake in hulu and whose value goes really high disney. Going to have to be a lot more money. So they decided to use star as they're basically they're substitute for hulu when it comes to every market except for the united states. I don't. I don't really like that at all. I think that branding wise. It does not benefit the company to have multiple services. That do the exact same thing in different markets. I just don't feel like that's entirely necessary for a brand perspective. You want everything to be under the same thing and maybe long term..

"It's definitely shocking for them. When they usually yes they might spend a lot of money but it's because of their spending it on a bunch of different projects are investing a different space but putting four hundred fifty million within one franchise for two movies is is very very surprising. But maybe they're also trying to buy in a sense. You know orion johnson in his work. Okay like we liked knives out. Let's do two three and then from there like let's sign him to an exclusive deal or something like that that might be. That might be the case. But i agree destined. This is a very weird This is very weird deal. That's happening and in honestly is one of those things. Just when you think that netflix couldn't throw they're starting to understand that they don't need to spend an insane amount of money and do this and we know that in general there is going to be this lulled or report recently saying that netflix is currently putting out about twelve percent. Less than they did last year as far as the amount of original content that they have and that's specifically due to the fact that they just have cova delays when it comes to filming things and typically year over year they actually increased. So you're seeing a twelve percent decrease from last year on top of the fact that the you typically have an increase. You're saying it know around twenty percent less than you would. You would expect to find this year. Appre covert world and now were sitting here seen a situation where they you know they don't have as much original content so you would assume yes. There's going to be some purchases. We've already heard about some smaller films that they've purchased that are going to be joining the over one hundred films that they're releasing over the course of the year. But this is even something. That's going to be happening anytime. Soon ron johnson is specifically to sequel that he stated was in mind and that he was working on a sequel as of january twenty twenty. So sure it could start filming soon. We're going to see the sequel in two thousand twenty one so i don't understand the necessity to spend that much money..

"Yeah i would agree. Just what i might. Experience of looking of reading and following comcast over the years is they seem to be the obstinate partner relationship. So all right so next stop. This is an interesting one. Netflix's has paid a reported four hundred fifty million dollars for two knives out sequels and unfamiliar with knives out. It's movie that came out the end of two thousand nineteen a murder mystery. It did it. Did very well for what it was. It wasn't like a big blockbuster. Action movie had an ensemble cast of really great actors. But it was in most ways. You could describe it as it's not just a mid range. Budget film was very down to earth and it was very successful. Now the real question is in this has been presented online is why in the world would they pay four hundred and fifty million dollars for two sequels. That's a lot of money. The other catch of course is that the first film You know it was successful in the box office to agree but does it warrant. You know breaking up. These two films is two hundred. Twenty five million dollars a piece. I'm not necessarily sure on that. I mean there's been rumors that not rumors but there's been some talk online that maybe there's more to this purchase than meets the eye. Maybe it's there's two sequels but also purchased the rights to a potential. How television series and the movies will lead into a television series. But i don't know necessarily if that's true because that's not part of the initial announcement is not an you would think that would be part of the initial announcement. It seems like a lot of money. I mean we've heard some insanely large amounts of money being tossed around for certain movies when it comes to the streaming services. Netflix has been buying stuff all the all over the place you know. Throwing fifty seventy five million dollars at certain films that they make in house and then obviously there's been films that they've purchased and other providers like prime video and things like that have provided by one hundred million dollars hundred and twenty million dollars it. There's a lot of money being thrown around but two hundred twenty five million dollars per filmed is an insane amount of money in my opinion. And i just don't see these films bringing in that significant lee large amount of subscribers. That's going to warrant necessarily the cost of these movies. I just feel like it's to i. I i agree. It is extremely high The first is out. Movie had a budget of forty million in its box office was The final tally was three hundred and eleven million. I i love types out. I think is a great show i was. I was pleasantly surprised. Surprised with the movie. It was of this weird genre. Basically it's like the game clue brought to life in. It was a pleasant experience. Now after you know in a ryan johnson. He has a little bit of controversy with the star wars fandom and then you just comes out this movie and it was a nice pressure..

AMCs deal with NBCUniversal could bring new movies to viewers homes in 17 days

"AMC which is a big theater chain in big trouble because of the pandemic was in trouble before now it's much worse trouble. made a deal with universal studios and the deal breaks the window that all the movie owners have been trying to preserve because they feel as essential to their business I mean, the previous window was ninety days in this deal. which is so striking seventeen days. The universal has the option to take these movies and put them on premium video-on-demand like they did with trolls, trolls movie recently like they did with Staten Island, the Judd appetizer movie, and they have to charge you a minimum of twenty bucks but seventeen days is so much shorter than anybody had ever imagined. I think other theatre owners are just like sort of stunned by the steel and another theater chain owner. The CEO said, we do not see any business sense in this model. So let's break this down and figure why they did this. I, mean first of all, the theater chains are extremely challenge right now they have no product they have nothing to do and I. Think this is a catalyst for what a lot of people have said was going to eventually. Happen is that the theater chains we're going to have to succumb on this windows issue and get the movie studios to essentially cut them in on a portion of revenue for premium vod. So that means if universal has a movie after seventeen days, three weekends, they can put that movie on vod charge a premium for it, and they will have to cut in the movie theater chains on this. So essentially, they're sacrificing this window exclusivity for a piece of what? They see as a growing potentially transformative market. Yes. As You well know Matt the danger here I mean with the big movie with one of the fast and furious movies that costs a fortune and needs to grow fortune. They will never get there even if they charge you a lot of money for that premium video on demand thing they the calculation is they can't get there and they would leave those movies in theaters longer but if there are certain movies. That they put in. So quickly after seventeen days are we not training the public to say, I. Don't need to go to the movie theater just wait. Yeah and the question is was that happening already or is this going to be the spark that Burns down the theatrical movie business and I and I think there's room for debate there because we see the trends we see in the movie business are that people show up in mass amounts for the a-list. E ticket ride movies like avengers and fast and furious but increasingly, the middle ground of movies and below that are not alluring people in theaters and we've seen example after example of this at the same time as streaming services are going nuts on their film offerings. So is AMC getting out ahead of this and saying we got to throw in the towel and least we will get a cut of this I mean think about what happened in the music business the music business was essentially destroyed by streaming and then slowly but. Surely. It was brought back by streaming because the consumer was trained to pay the services got great and now the music business is doing great because of streaming and I think ultimately that's likely going to happen here in the movie business and AMC is getting a piece of this and negotiating to be part of that future rather than continuing to hang on to the past model. Yeah. I mean I think there are a couple of really big questions. Can you have movie theaters when they're on a steady diet of gigantic movies? There's that sustain them that can keep them in business and the other big question is it really can AMC survive long enough to see the whatever fruits this deal might yield because. Is Teetering on a precipice. That's why they did this deal by the way. NBC. announced. Results they're they're getting hurt badly too but. AMC This is a lifeline they hope and We'll see whether AMC lives long enough to try this and if it really does. Kill. Movie theaters were one early indicator that is not dispositive here is that the stock went up when this deal was announced AMC. So clearly, investors are seeing down the line and saying, Hey, you know what we may be on something here.

I don't oversell it a little bit. Because good rifle needs help. And so you and you gave it to him. Thank you very much. Kevin. Appreciate it now, Mr Renda Robur is with us. We talk about peacock, the new over the top streaming service. Available today. I suppose it a television near you. Why do I want it? And what do I have to do to get it? Well, it's it's NBC streaming service, just like CBS has all access. All the networks are doing this. Of course, there's about 20 everybody knows about who Lou and Amazon prime and, of course, Netflix. So this is NBC's foray into streaming content. So You can get 20,000 hours of content and everything from old shows of theirs. SNL Archives Library, You know, shows shears lawn order. You mentioned things that are nbcuniversal stuff from today. Sports programming Telemundo tons of content. You get half of it for free. You just signed up for peacock and you get it Now, if you want the premium where you get the original content and even mohr of the archival stuff that could either be five bucks for 10 bucks a month, depending on how many ads you want to sit through. This whole thing has been in play for a long time. Rohit was set to debut right around this time to piggyback on NBC, which had the Summer Olympics. Which, of course, is a huge $1,000,000,000 enterprise for any network has the Olympics and they were going to have all the coverage and NBC but then tons of live coverage of the scene starting right now. Right around now. Yes, they would have had. You know if you were. I think a lot of people would have signed up for Peacock because you would have been able to see a lot of because as we know with it with, you know, the Olympics will be in Japan. A lot of stuff is on time delay or in the middle of the night. If you wanted most of time with the networks do is they package it very nicely and there, you're really seeing highlight packages of events that took place earlier in the day or the day before. But if you wanted to check out stuff live and extra stuff Peacock was gonna have all this. But NBC decided they're going to go ahead and put the peacock out there now let it spread its colorful wings. Okay, so feathers Identical way is knowing. I don't even know who the hell if I know what a little wings that's a different movie. I got to talk about tomorrow with colorful wings. Okay, all right now. I got to go back to the Olympics here for saying that I'm freaked out slightly. The Olympics would have been starting now, and that's NBC over the last number of years, the last number of Olympic cycles. Was offering over the top programming in different ways that you know you go on. Get on demand. I sit back isn't out of the tap in through your cable box. Your satellite box, you could have gotten on demand versions of those Those? Ah, those events and then they were using their other networks on cable. Whether was CNBC. You know, NBC sports all the rest to do. So they had multiple streams, depending on what your taste interest where you know you liked gymnastics. Almost, I think was NBC's SportsNet hadn't did gymnastics all the way through. Oh, and you know whatever happened to bay. So now when the Olympics start again next year, ostensibly They won't be available on those of the networks. It'll just be on NBC and the peacock. That would be my guess. I honestly don't know. I don't know if NBC knows exactly so, you know, Listen again. I'm not advocating that people pay the money for it. There's a lot of stuff that's available. That's free. That's kind of cool. You can see. I mean, and this is also let's remember an NBC universal. So there's also movies like the Jurassic Park Franchise and E T. And Shrek and meet the parents use catalogue of films and then row. There are some original Siri's and I can talk about quickly for your intelligence or example marks, David Schwimmer returned to sitcoms after believe it or not, it's been 16 years since friends went off the air. And intelligence is 1/2 hour deadpan type workplace sitcom where he plays an N s a agent on American agent who goes to across the pond to the good government communications headquarters for the U. K kind of a wimp. Your version of my five And he's going to take over the program there except for they don't think he's taking over the program. They think he's a clown who's been sent here is kind of punishment. So basically swim plays. Ah, ah hybrid of his character of Ross, the nerd and Michael Scott from the office. He's the pompous guy who comes in and thinks he's going to run everything, and then we meet the colorful characters in the office. There's all kinds of high jinks. It's not great, I would say, honestly, it's It's one of the things that you have to pay to see. And I'd say, Save your money. How many pieces of of Entertainment means that term loosely Are available on peacock in terms of if you have even by that, if you if you upgrade to the middle level, which is going to five bucks a month, and you're still getting commercials and then 10 bucks a month they take the commercials out. Is that how it works? Yeah, and you're going to you're going to get a lot of original programming that you wouldn't get for free. For example, there's another one called the capture, which is really interesting. It's a conspiracy thriller where a British soldier this is a very serious drama. British soldier Is seen on the CCTV cameras in London mugging and dragging his lawyer off camera and find a bus station. But he claims he didn't do it. Then we get into this whole thing about doctored footage and fake news. It's really cool. It's called the capture, so people are looking for Senate movie or serious A peacock. It's a serious, 66 Our limited series 61 hour episodes has got Ron Perlman and it who's always greatest kind of steers American operative. It's one of those things where it's like normal. Nothing you see on the surveillance cameras is really and it's getting doctored it very close to Rhea life, and it kind of It is really, really cool, but to go back to your question, robot what you're going to get. I mean, you think about the history of NBC. That's why there's $20,000 a program because again you can go All the way deep into the SNL vault. And if they're even going to show highlights from current shows, like the Today Show on the nightly news and meet the press, and they'll be stuff they'll do just for the peacock, Just like a lot of other Places do it After the show or a little bit of inside stuff. Jimmy found Seth Myers, You have a lot of their skits from their shows on their sons of movies. And then you know if you want to go back and just watch every episode of Frasier, go for it. It's no great, but those were on like Netflix and other things and other over the town. Another not then they're all off that now. Yes. So all of this stuff Now Some of these, some of these shows might have deals to the end of this year, but very soon if you want it, you know, And a lot of these shows are in syndication. So you might be able to catch him here and there. But this is going to be the go to place for parks and rec and 30 Rock and Saturday Night live..

NBCUniversal Wades Into Streaming Wars With Peacock

"There is yet entrant in the streaming worse. NBC universals Contender Peacock lunches today with a host of classic shows like Frasier and cheers. NBC Is Hoping Peacock will stand out as a low cost option with tears of content at different prices, including a free version with commercials of course, but our reporter Joe Flint says that even from day one peacock faces an uphill battle, the big challenge really for them right now is. It's a very crowded marketplace. They are coming in late to it. I think even their own top executives would acknowledge that they've been. been a little late to the streaming game. That doesn't necessarily mean they're doomed. Of course, if the analogy they used, and it's an accurate one. If you look at the cable news world when Fox News debuted, they were late behind MSNBC, and CNN and the general consensus was. They won't make a mark. Obviously, we've seen that's not the case what their their hope was to use the wind. Sorry the Summer Olympics. Promotional, platform so. They kind of lost the billboard that they were planning on. And they're going to launch with less of the original programming. They were hoping to debut with the Hollywood shutdown of production. Due to the corona virus is basically put a lot of projects in limbo for now. That's not just them of course. Disney plus. Hbo Max. Even even that flakes, no one's producing right now, but if you're a new service and you only have a handful of new shows that also may make it tougher to get people to come sample you

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