Who is chair of the Consumer Protection Subcommittee Committee in Congress wrote a letter? Cossio Brian Roberts saying it is my belief that comcast corporation needs to be broken up. This is in reaction to the US executive branch coming in on the side of comcast in a discrimination lawsuit brought by the entertainment studios which is headed up by a man named Byron Allen. That discrimination case is appearing before the US Supreme Court November thirteen. Alan accuses comcast discrimination in its decisions not to carry cable television networks from entertainment studios representative rush supported. COMCAST'S ACQUISITION OF NBC Universal Back in two thousand nine. But he's not so happy with them these days all right. Let's talk about Disney. Let's do it in an interview. Disney CEO Bob Iger said that the Disney plus stream service will be available on fire TV devices vices and Samsung and L. G.. TV's at launch in the US. Which is coming Tuesday November twelfth just a few days from now Disney plus will also be available across Google Apple Bolt Microsoft and Roku as well Disney also announced more details about Disney pluses international?

Canada the Netherlands Australia and New Zealand Eiger also said that Disney Zinni plus will release more than sixty original movie and TV shows each movies and TV shows each year and FX and Fox searchlight will have designated homes on Hulu starting guarding in March. Yeah I mean this is getting a lot of attention. Don't get me wrong but I think may be lost on some people who follow this more closely like we do. How important important this is? This is the streaming service that everyone knows about and even people who don't get net flicks are likely elite to try signing up for I think for a lot of people this will be their first streaming service and this is the kind of thing that can then pull people industry mean when they say. Oh this is how how this works. Well that's interesting. You can get other things. This way could be the moment we point back to and say that's when the cord cutting wave really finally had it's inflection. Point is it might misinterpretation or is this sort of like Disney's game to lose. I mean they've got everything so they've got all the really really cool stuff and for some reason they have. I think they've prayed. Priced it at least half of what it should be. Maybe a third of what it should cost and so do all they have to do is put it out there. I mean we already know what's in there. It's awesome stuff. It's all this stuff we want right. Yeah no I think you're right like this. This kind of takes out of the equation. Will they like the content. Well I mean yes. There are people who aren't going to like all the content on Disney but man those are few small Alabama people. There's there's something for everybody in there. There's classic Disney stuff. There's high school musical stuff there's marvel there's Lucasfilm there's National Geographic. I mean it's it's all over the place so it's less likely that somebody's not gonna find someone something they like and like you said. The price is pretty affordable to well. Then I think that that's a big part of the a strategy rate ellison you mentioned it seems almost underpriced. Well that's how you get in there. Get into Disney. Plus you get used to it. You like it. Netflix has done done this over the years as well. We're raising our prices incrementally not too much but it's going to be a little bit more expensive than people go well. I I like Netflix. So it's you know it's it's that is the better way to do this because they are on a very competitive plainfield at this point in time is platform to like if you've got a fire TV a Samsung. TV It'll L. D. TV. You're no longer like wait. Am I going to get this. Yeah the answer is yes you can get it if you want the price wise if you get a free Disney account. It's like three three and a half bucks a month I mean. That's that's bananas low. I don't even I mean that's paying for three years. Are you worried. They're not gonNA make enough money. Allison you know you could probably maybe check into that. I just want you to survive his knee. We're worried about you. Know I think I mean yes they can raise the polite price later too but a lot of this is sunk cost for them. They already owned the rights. They didn't have to negotiate the rights for stuff. Although they're giving up revenue that they would have got if they'd licensed it out to somebody else but I think six ninety nine a month from a lot of people might make up for that. We'll see. Hey I want to do a follow up on the report yesterday remember. We talked about the fact that people receive text messages originally sent on February fourteenth causing a lot of uncomfortable situations The Virgin reports that a company called Sin Averse which provides third party networking services to mobile. Carriers says that was us. A single server was to blame claim. That's why it didn't happen to everybody. the server failed on February fourteenth. And so any messages it had on it waiting to be put it into the queue stayed on that server until it was brought back online November seventh at which point once the server was fired back up it said Oh wait we got some messages the buffer. Let's let's ship them out now. They had been trapped there since February fourteenth. There is no explanation yet why this server went down and didn't get noticed. which is I'm that's kind of the next obvious? Question is like really. Nobody noticed that much of were missing and you didn't. You didn't figure out that the server was offline but that is at least the technical 'cause now have we heard yet of the class action lawsuit of all of the relationships that broke up up because people thought they did not get their Valentine's Day greeting from there. Valentine oh well actually no. We haven't but I wouldn't. I wouldn't be shocked if there wasn't something along. Those lines. Garrick emailed US noting that there could be actual fall-outs where people might bring court cases because somebody has a restraining order against someone else. Get a message you know and and you know we're we're going on a year even if that person didn't do something wrong. That sounds like a very strange loophole. Pull to have to explain to authorities really. That'll work well. Netflix announced. It will no longer support some older. TV's and roku starting December. I I if you have a Samsung. TV from twenty ten or twenty eleven of video TV that is four years old or older or one of the falling Roku Roku Twenty fifty x twenty one hundred x two thousand see hd player SD player X.. Our player and ex deep layer is becoming more frequent occurrence with Hulu recently dropping support for LG. TV's TV's made before two thousand fourteen yeah on the one hand streaming stuff is maturing right because we're getting to the point like we with phones where you can no longer get UPDATES for certain things. It was funny when I I read this. I was like Oh Noah. I have kind of an old Samsung TV. It's circuit twenty thirteen. So I'm I'm in the clear but I also don't use the APP. I use other devices that I that I that I plug into my TV. And that I control them the way that I want to. So it's a principal thing and I think there are a lot of folks that do do this so it's it's unfortunate particularly for the LG folks because two thousand fourteen was not all that long ago when you're talking about TV's right right well. I I'm surprised you were able to find this time or the the actual levels. Because I went to Netflix his website it said supported Roku models and I clicked on it and it did not show me what models were supported under Roku. Luckily they had a little survey saying to this. Answer your question question thumbs up for thumbs down. Yeah this this came via a couple of different blogs that were reported back through the BBC these model numbers but yeah it. It seemed like Netflix wasn't really Excited about telling everybody which stuff They were going to stop supporting. They are sending a message through the APP though. So if you use used the APP and it's going to be deprecated you've been getting a message you already know. Oh good and so what's interesting about. That is a lot of people are now going to be upset about about this who weren't affected because they weren't using the APP but they're like but I could have been right and this is different than a phone. A phone. Not being supported is more expensive to replace you can easily get like a chrome cast or small Roku or fire TV for twenty to forty bucks in most cases TV. I'm not saying that makes it great. I think I. I wonder if it's just that Netflix doesn't want to spend the money on continuing to develop for older platforms but it does show why why relying on a TV's operating system isn't a long term strategy for anybody I don't give my TV access to the Internet Don't trust I don't trust at all on Wednesday apple. It specialist. Bob Gambler found a Mac. Os Database file that locally stores Info photo from mail and other APPs to be used by Siri to make better suggestion to users. Sounds great right well.

Obviously you have to have somebody get ahold of your machine and not be running. File Vault I think if you've got encrypted maleter if you're running encrypted male you're probably running file volt too and if anybody followed one hundred years ago when it first came out and it was big fat pain Dory but it now you click a button and you okay on with your business you. It's no brainer. It's fast and it doesn't impact you at all. Yeah if anything that the best part of this story is getting that word out there to people who might not have gotten back around to turning on file on an older machine gene so you have that encrypted access it this is also I always call these an example of of good security research. A security researcher found a thing. Yeah Yeah Apple took a little longer to respond to this. Then maybe they should have but it's also not super high risk and they are going to address it so I you know I think I think all in all this is this is good news that the the folks that you want to find these things found this one which is good. I did the shocking part. Is that apple responded to the verge. That apple actually spoke to the verge about it. Yeah that's a good point. Yeah I don't know how that happened. That was a slip up. The satellite startup.

We had area Waldman on not too long ago talking about the Antarctic station and the the slow Internet access that they have. This will help improve that for our future people going into Antarctica's well that is crazy cool and it really has been very limited handed as as you mentioned Tom when aerial was was visiting US couple weeks ago in a she. She'd had a wonderful time. But said you know the Internet. Ah Issue is is. It's tough it's tough for scientists. It's tough for people who are in the media Ed's tougher you know anybody who's who's in in the region this is great And and since I saw a video of a Beluga Whale plane fetch people off a boat in the Arctic yesterday.
