Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 04
"Is thereby do like the fact that kyle amaury stole from the ball but now we are going to hop into a guy that went fifteen picks earlier in nfl draft. A guy that. I absolutely love allied larger more. He felt a second pick of the second round. And i am adjust fan. So i hope i'm not too biased here by do absolutely love elijah more because you look at the offense there. The new york has in place and the did geico davis and they do have them. Zal dumbbell mims there too and jamison crowder and you may think while there's a lot of receivers here but fact of the matter is the jets spent high draft capital. Two goping get larger more. If they're picking him with the thirty fourth pick of the nfl draft when they have all these other holes on the roster. We're talking edge quarterback you can make the case that they probably should have picked a player that was an edge or cornerback but they went ahead and they pick the larger more probably because they had a first round great on him and viewed him as one of the top receivers in this class. And if they didn't think that he could he could become a number one number two receiver. The offense and zack wilson. They probably wouldn't have bothered. They're in picking eligible more. So i think that you have all these. Ribisi were twos vibrancy. Threes in newark. Don't have a true alpha by receiver one in york and you saw gems on men's last year yes. He had injuries throughout the season. So we didn't really see enough from him but clearly the jets haven't don't believe him enough to be born receiver because they drafted elijah more. And when you're looking at college football last season devante. Smith had a great season but a lot of people are not talking about elijah more enough and i believe elijah moore had the second most receiving yards in college football last season in a shortened season. So this is a guy you can make the case for is a very very good receiver and it was. It was definitely disappointing for him. To see 'em fall out of the first round. But i absolutely love this landing spot with zach wilson in leiden. More both being rookies. I think the chemistry is going to develop an plus alleged. moore's blazing fast receiver. He can like a four three forty and this is the guy. That's an impressive rat runner to me to really has a little bit of it all. He may not be the biggest receiver the biggest taller receiver. But i think that he s potential to be a slot receiver a coup number for the jets in years to come so i am all about allied more this year and going forward i think there may even be better than rashad. Bateman and may be the third or fourth fest receiver in this class. Well i just wanna stay for the viewers. You know anybody. That's been listening to us. Knows that you're not just being a homer on him because you were higher than just about everybody in. The industry like the entire draft process before the draft. So i know it's not just because he landed at the jets because i would call you crazy. It was just for that reason. But you know i think you make interesting cases you know it you also knowing you. You're not a very high. You weren't high on the corey davis signing. I don't think that you're surely how on mims of abbas really really Into mems last year Going the draft process. I did not end up with him on any teams because his a draft dot com just started skyrocketing and he the point where i was taking pittman over them. Still then you. I wasn't getting him. On the turnaround you know because i also claypool and gibson ranked ahead of them but Like mims and i thought he was actually a really really interesting prospect. So at night we're willing to give on him after He's got that alphabet. I'm not willing to give up on him after a year. That a complete dumpster fire in new york last year. You know they have a completely new offense. I corey davis kinda showed that he could be the number one wide receiver. Antonio brown was hurt. Leisure you know most of those. Those guys actually kind of started splitting targets down the stretch about pretty pretty evenly. So i do. Think that Corey davis they paid him. I think they're going to at least attempt to get him. The number one spot and i do think mims profiles really well and the outside as well Us why they went out and got him with that pick. What corey davis and mims strengths are like down the field jump ball situations whereas i think Allies more profiles more is like underneath guy that can can really thrive if he gets volume. I just wonder how much volume is going to be there. If they're not running a dominant amount of sets of three watersheds. Because i do think that the other two receivers with their bodies and big catch races will Out snap him on the outside while it's interesting that you're high on Corey davis. And i know i've said before the not hot high in corey davis so i think that's another reason as to why i'm higher on a lighter more. I'm just not buying the fact. That corey davis succeeds in new york. Two years ago not last year but if we look back two years ago and a lot of people probably have wiped out from their mind. But i have not wiped that season from my mind because i was big. Encore dave's heading attest season and he completely let me down lake completely. Let me down. I'm not even sure. I'm thinking was probably healthy the entire season and i'm not even sure if he finished as top fifty receiver in the league and so fast forward a year and had a very successful year with the titans. I'm not knocking him. But here's a guy who was picked with the seventh or east kick in his draft and he was supposed to be the number one receiver for titans and we never really saw that work out for the titans. And i think they declined his fifth year option. So there's a reason why the titans aren't holding onto corey davis and i think unfortunately core gape is a receiver who can be great here and there like a devante parker. But he's not consistent enough. He's not a true number one receiver. You gotta in a way force in targets from the be successful. And i think the jets are just gonna realize the gecko that our number one receivers probably larger more in a number two receivers probably summons so. I'm not scared about corey. Davis getting targets. People were saying the same thing last season about shod paramount and how he was going to have a huge role in that new york offense and what happened in bre shot parent. Who by the way. I was extremely on extremely law. Shot payment last year. What happened to be shot. He did nothing for that offense. So i think just because the jets went after core gave us that doesn't mean that he's going to automatically demand targets. It's zach. wilson's offense now. I think zack. Wilson is going to gravitate Skies like elijah. More over corey davis and a jamison crowder dems. I think the alleged moore will end up being his normal receiver. And i think that the ceiling for more is very high to it. Might it might not happen with a larger more by think by the end of the season we're going to really realize how good of a player that allies are more is. Yeah so

Optimize Your Brain: Fighting Cognitive Decline With Nutrition & Lifestyle
"What is it about age or maybe neurology that makes people set in their ways as they get older. It is a weird thing right. It really is more difficult to entertain new ideas. I think it varies from person to person but in my experience just comfort you know when once you set a path in. You're comfortable with it. Your brain doesn't really allow you to change that math. It's like walking on a snow track. It's so deeply set in the walls or sol-solid that it's difficult for you to actually make a new pathogens and it requires a lot of reflection and judgment and being okay to make mistakes and the discomfort in being uncomfortable the comfort in being uncomfortable. They can help you set noise but it does seem like that becomes much more of a challenge. It does it does We the whole idea of change is not normal. I'm talking about chronic change acute chain. We're good at it because an acute change we had to for millions of years. There's a tree there's a lion you know. Better make change in my decision making. I'm not going to go down. This stop long-term change were not designed for that were not our brains are not designed for long term change. That's a completely different mechanism. And and if we and if we don't address that i mean to be honest i know that it's not be recalled. Our political stances. Everything is around this concept of being with change. I always say about. Five percent of population is future seekers. Another ninety five percent is passed protectors And you have to be pass protector in many ways because protection has worked. Whatever has gotten you here as you depending on the past patterns right but all the change in society in the world around us is by those five percent. Whatever i'm using arbitrary number that are comfortable. This is weird. People comfortable with change with the unknown. The three hundred sixty degrees of are known. You're willing to go there and yet this house. that's comfortable you're willing to leave it to go to the next place. That's an unusual concept Were which comes with the frontal lobe but but That's why as we get older. We become more set on all the strings that connects us to the past. You want us. To sever sever sever suffers to go to a new path. That is unknown at a time. Where i'm already vulnerable. Yeah that's too much risk. Yeah yeah is there a genetic piece to that when you look at that five percent can you isolate out what it is that distinguishes them neurologically from very early. You can tell there. There's a genetic component environmental component that genetic anxiety is at the core of all this stuff or term that is like anxiety we using anxiety as a just as a word. That's as filler. But it's a little more than that. Our ability to deal with the world around us for the most part for at the beginning is genetically you can see children. We have two children both trust me. We're gonna talk about them. But they're very precocious. Yeah incredibly but the understatement of the century go ahead make very different very different. Alex is what you could see when you when you I'm not putting him down. Because this is not a weakness this is just our proclivities. We can change you when you put him on the sand when he was six months. Old us som- do this. He hated sand. Sofi would crawl to the ocean. Having right away. I mean that's a threat. Why are you not threatened. By very thing you're supposed to be threatened by north right so that threat aversion versus not the river part of it is intrinsically ingrained in us part of it is actually data shows part of. It's actually program how your mother reacts to anxiety provoking moments mother because the is there all the time wherever you're around the most and how they react know how they promote challenging situations and anxiety provok- situation how they react with it and how they deal with it is the forget about leadership masters. I got a phd. Forget about that ends and starts there. Yeah you create situations that are a little bit anxiety provoking. You fail nothing. My parents didn't react badly. You succeed great how you react. And how does micro environments of threat version threat response. Threat creation and response is the foundation of all leadership. Yeah i would think from an environmental perspective or i mean an evolutionary perspective that You know maintaining your membership in good standing with your community is paramount right. So if that community is welcoming to people who pushed the boundaries and try new things. That's one thing but if that sort of thinking outside the box is gonna alienate you than You there's gonna be some pushback right there's a disincentive. That's that's butting up against somebody's willingness to entertain new ideas or try new things always an and the culture that's been set in place that creates an aversion to change the language the micro languages that anything that somebody brings that his little threatening to the status quo. You have things out. This is a this is arrogant. The word arrogant to push away. People who have new ideas is universe. It's it's such a ubiquitous silencing technique and When you look at when you look at the main reason why people are not willing to change his the fear of being ostracized like you said. Nobody wants to get out of that comfortable zone. Because it's really difficult to be alone in your way of life in your new methodology in your new habits and that's that's the first step that people have to challenge themselves to take over right given that though it's interesting that most environments are not really that permissive when it comes to free thinking and creative expression and most are pretty regimented around. What's okay and what's not but it would. It would seem like we should be more encouraging to that permissive environments. And why is that. Why are we not able to make that more. The case as opposed to you know the slim five percent or whatever it is. Yeah well we have ghanistan and with taliban around us yet. That same mentality exists here in the medical community and by the way this is me not bashing dramatic medical community like part of the only the medical community here to know about just their mentality. that's all know. But but the stagnant comfort with the status quo. Right is the same thing. I mean the hallways of your limbic system are the same You might have put it better clothes and better beards and you know my beard was a little better here than that but if the mentality is i must maintain it's not always over. I must maintain the status. And i don't know even why because it makes me uncomfortable. It's a satan. yeah. I mean to In two thousand two before we met two months earlier. I'm an experimental therapeutics branch. That's as wonky as as experimental as it gets speaking with nobel prize winners two months later. I'm in afghanistan. Speaking with taliban leaders. Both places trying to bring change. And i can promise you. The the the language was much more sophisticated But the blockades same protection of the status quo. That's why i mean when we talk about. Dementia we talk about stroke. We talk about mental health. Even now that repetition of the same patterns over and over again. I'm now some other. Studies are starting with clinical trial with hundred people. Fifty people six. We're done. We know what works.

We there are a lot of research and more and more every day coming out about how we are affected but people people don't really put the two together they they don't realize that their anxiety and their question is is due to their online usage something lonelier because at first glance it looks like you know the world is out there living this amazing social life which is exactly the opposite of the person that scrolling through social media usually and and that's like to stay on that slippery slope things diety and and those things you mentioned and as i said most of us just don't relate that negative feeling that we're having To the social media usage but we have research that don't like the to. yeah. I mean i You know i just. I think a couple months ago got an instagram on my own personal one. I've only got like nine nine post on there so far. But i did it because i was almost forced to like you have to do it. Social media is so important. You know if you if you're on radio or whatever just just in business. In general social media is important for your advertisers. And all these things that you have to interact interact with if you own a business. But i don't like it. I never have. I was probably one of the last businesses to to get on social media. I fought it for years And so i'm way behind the game and you know what dr wildly don't care. I really don't care. is that a. Is that a bad thing. No absolutely not i. I understand what you're saying. I know when. I wrote my second book to find a as i was looking for a publisher. That was one of the questions. They all wanted like. Do you have a social media platform. Just you're writing a book about Media that it's not helpful though I get what you're saying. But but i think it's really helpful for us to hold on to our our values and what we know into typically that we need. And you know you you can do what i do and have someone else Manager social media if it becomes too much for you. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah no. I have someone but i even feel guilty about having them having to be on social media all the time. I just don't like it. I don't think it's healthy at all a little bit a little bit of something. I guess is okay junior. I'm going to pull you into this. How do you feel about social media. You've got two young daughters like me. Years are a little bit younger but do you like them being on social media and do you see it becoming potentially a a problem in their lives. So i'm kinda split on a two. Because i need social media for what i do as far as work goes But and i. I see that social media like the there is some good things so we do for my daughter's as we have the passwords to all their accounts So we get notifications just like they do if anybody tries to message them With they're not allowed to accept friends unless we see first We just had to put some restrictions on it and and we do check and we randomly check and they know that. So you know that. I think that's just what you have to do as a parent you kind of have to police their pages i. It's kinda hard to to completely take it away. 'cause they'll find a way. I mean kids. I have a friend whose daughter found a way to make fake accounts and they you know they they do things to get around so i i i. I don't wanna like tell them they can't do it but they do know that. I'm watching Your oldest did you thirteen. She just turned thirteen. She's from fourteen fourteen. Okay and minus sixteen going on seventeen and so they're very close in age and it does get more difficult to to manage it or oversee as they get a little older you want them to be more independent. You don't want them clinging to you Because you just want you wanna have confident and independent children so it is a very difficult line to walk. Dr wildly suggest that parents do well. I think is a very important part of parenting now and in this new digital environment that has become paramount in our world so we we need to Be educated on the things that can happen. And we need to educate our children and they need to understand that yes we are going to parent them responsibly. Around this i love the things that junior said that they are doing and there are many at now that you can get you know to monitor what's going on with your kids on social media and to block out offensive Website and whatnot because you we need to be aware there are some stories right now in the media about things going on that started on social media and it's really scary like what for example. Well i this one of the things that what predators how determined you know. Yeah who are who are out there posing as someone completely different than who they actually are and once story out there is of an actual predatory. Was you know pain to the home of a child an underage minor. And you know so. This is really frightening. Yeah it is frightening. You know it's so you know to go back to what we originally What i asked you about you know You know the higher levels of social media being associated with loneliness envy anxiety depression narcissism. What are some of the signs that social media is becoming an issue. Psychologically for not just a child but even an adult how do how do you know that you've you've entered into the danger zone if you will well the that. Social media's becoming a problem is when you know in in in the areas that you mentioned like loneliness and anxiety depression in the You know just like anything. We become addicted to be able to have import questions. Are we able to do without this are we. Okay with introducing balance. How much angst does it caused us to put this down and walk away from it for a while. Those are those are very telltale signs. If if we have a problem. Yeah i don't i think it's getting to the point almost like i don't know like it has with I gotta be very careful what i say here. I don't wanna. I don't want to come come off as i'm judging anyone but you know when when you put your picture out on social media and you've gotten to the point where you must put built around because nobody even knows what you look like really without a filter and there are so many of them That make you look younger. Make you look thinner. Make your you know your skin. Look amazing i mean it goes over basically as a swipe now as i understand it you can it can heighten your cheekbones. Make your lips fuller like change the tone of your skin your hair like all the stuff like why is that even necessary. Have we become a society. That is so shallow that we must see everyone at their best. Always like looking beautiful. Even if they're not really and say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We shouldn't even be at a point in our world where we're even looking at that anymore. But i don't know if that'll ever go away. I mean beauty something that we evaluate since the beginning of time right. Oh yeah but think of the thirty of what you just shared. I mean that that that's so sad. And and thank the pressure that is put on people especially teenagers vaults and what is the message that we are sending our young people with all these filters and whatnot. Yeah well it's it's certainly something that we all need to contemplate especially those that have

Netflix might be cracking down on password sharing
"Netflix users. beware. The company is considering a crackdown on customers. Who share their passwords with friends or family members. Netflix knows many of its two hundred million subscribers or piggybacking on someone else's account and now the company is testing a new papa message asking some users to verify that they own the account. They're trying to log into. Peter kafka is senior correspondent at recode and host of recode media peter either. So what is netflix up to here. Well that's a good question Their official line is just a test. Who knows what the who's who knows what we're gonna do but in theory. It looks like they might be reconsidering a longtime stands. They've had which is basically you. We're not telling you this but we're not gonna complain if you share your net password with a lot of other people They're doing a test. That says if for instance you've ever borrowed a netflix password You might see a pop up on your tv saying hey. You can only do this if you have a netflix account with us and if you do let us know and we'll send you a log in and you can get on yourself. It seems appears to be nudging you towards going from free loader to paying netflix's subscribe well. It does seem to me that it could be like the end of an era because people have been sharing passwords for as long as netflix has been around. You know just a few years ago. Ceo reed hastings said password sharing something that you have to learn to live with. So why crackdown now. Well we don't again. We don't know they're cracking down. You know the the obvious conclusion you can draw is. Netflix used to sort of own streaming. That didn't have any competition and now there's a lot of competition from disney discovery plus and paramount plus. Hbo max and the suggestion would be all right. We people paying for us instead of paying for hbo max. Paramount plus people make a decision I'm not sure that's the case There's also a theory that h netflix's just taste testing out a count security you know. Netflix doesn't give free trials anymore. They used to do that. They've they've moved away from that And so if you wanna tease this all the way up and saying look you know what net flicks is you like it. It's time for you to star paying It would also suggest that theory holds up. That netflix is thinking we've got two hundred million subscribers worldwide. Seventy million in the us. How many more are we going to acquire With getting the freeloaders start paying but again redoing speculation here sure and do you have any idea how common it is for people to share passwords. I mean i. I i i personally. What happens a lot. I've shared my password for my entire family at various points. And i think they've all ended up paying for their own and in one point. I think that for a long time for for a lot of these dreamers was look. We'd rather have you paying but in the but you're also sort of giving us remarketing There's a there's a consulting firm magazine associates that that estimates that may be thirty percent of of netflix's users are are are are sharing. I guess passwords anecdotally. It's it's a lot of people because there really hasn't been any reason not to You did here During the pandemic people who'd been used to sharing their passwords. And you know In theory netflix. Lets you stream multiple accounts at the same time during the pandemic when everyone is at home streaming netflix. You've heard the people were running into that limit already. So this is something that could have been stirred on stirred up by the pandemic business has been pretty good. I think for netflix gained an extra thirty seven million customers during the pandemic because of all those people staying home watching the
The Real World (MM #3637)
"The minute with kevin mason Cbs has retooled their all access app and turn it into paramount. Plus it's the latest entry into the world of app based television. Nbc's peacock now. they've got paramount. Plus in addition to your netflix hulu but the one thing that kind of piqued my interest was the promotion for the return of the real world. A show which. I never really watched on television back in the mtv days. Because i was a little bit too old for that but it is the first reality based tv show going back to about nineteen ninety two and they're reuniting the initial cast the real world new york cast from season. One back again. Twenty nine years later. What i didn't realize is the real world ran on television from nineteen ninety-two twenty seventeen and it really is the grandfather of reality. Tv shows if we didn't have the real world we wouldn't have had the kardashians my wife who's younger than me. She watched the first couple of seasons of the real world. She knows those characters. Well she watch. It wouldn't surprise me what rattled me more. It was twenty nine years ago. I've been around that long. That's the scary part.
"paramount" Discussed on The Streaming Wars
"From the from date that they released in theaters which again lowers at the window and gives more added bonus to that things they specifically said the immediate films. top gun. maverick. Quiet place to and the mission. Impossible seven all are the first group of films that will be releasing on the service within forty five days of them being in theaters. And i am so. Let's let's talk about immediate reactions. I let's give me let me get your immediate reactions before. I dive into some of the things that i think are interesting. I was surprised. I really enjoyed. Cbs all access. When i was out yes there is some things just didn't have but some of the original content is really nice dab and Showed it to my parents and they really enjoyed the content. They always have they really love. Cbs and they found as he us. All access was though it was a great looking at paramount. Plus it's it is sanitizing. I think the biggest the biggest thing for me is this theatrical window bit. And i don't know about you. Justin by after warnermedia's announcement of okay. We are gonna do. Do release the movies theaters and then released. Max obviously up to up to a month immediately up to a month and then the rest their theatrical window. It's gonna be off the service since gonna come back eventually after hearing that deal in the now hearing. Okay yes it's going to be. It's going to be within thirty days or forty five days of the release of the theaters to that's Women the as Tuxedos the edge and just hearing paramount. Plus say okay. I think those are really good. Opportunity to Meet the situation at the h. Safar and all these other extreme services have to you know gil accordingly and. I bet that there's gonna be a little chemical sentence by the general public of okay. Well you know some us be watching movies. You know ms seven of that series. But okay. If i get access after wait now three days. It's it some. I think it's a missed opportunity. There but overall the streaming service sounds very compelling occurs to see how it goes. The pricing model is very simple. Five dollars a month with ads. Ten dollars thou. It's simple and i and i like that. Let's talk back again in three months. And just see how how they've grown in as long as they. I'm curious if they can beads sibusiso. All axes ceiling felt for some reason that there is always a ceiling with us streaming service. It was never going to go grow pass. You know what it was in. Maybe the people at paramount. Cbs viacom whatever. The company name is now after all these mergers sicom cbs. If the if those people took the lessons of see bezel access and applying the plus all right. We know what doesn't work and we're not moving in a different direction. When i immediately heard it's going to include one. I applaud them for having the ambition to include as much as they have going to have live content. Which is great that goes in line with what peacock is doing with certain things that they have they have sports they have nfl. They're actually one of the only ones that have. Nfl rights on their service. I think that just is a holdover from the initial deals that they had with the nfl for cbs. All access the question that i have on. Obviously you've got the movies which is kind of like what were media's doing it's just different version of it. There's a lot of content here in general. It seems like they're trying to hit all of these different marks of like what. What can we take. The best of every single of these services is launched in the last year we can put our content on the service within forty five days. That's similar to watch or media is doing with h. comax but not exactly the same because we don't want to upset anybody at the theaters. They wanna have live sports and they wanna have live news while peacocks already doing it. And obviously there's a ton of content in general thirty thousand which rivals thirty thousand episodes by by itself on demand rivals a lot of the other services so i think as far as their ambition as to the content that they will offer. I think it's a great level. I think the price point is great. The other thing that i kept getting frustrated by was the fact that the that they had already said. Outside of the state's showtime would be bundled as part of paramount plus and it would just include showtime shows here in the us because of the deals in place with cable providers. They were going to have some other option where you could do it and now it seems like you're going to be able to add on showtime to paramount plus as an added subscri- kind of like it added here. I guess you get added content. Into and i'm not opposed to that because honestly as long as it doesn't exceed fifteen dollars for the showtime content and all the cbs content. That puts it right on par with hbo. Max and they have roughly about the same amount of offerings. Paramount doesn't release as many movies per year. So it's not as big of a deal. Nobody's really going to be making a big deal about how they're lowering the theatrical window unlike warnermedia who lowered completely for a year because of the pandemic which might i add the dual releases that they've been doing with one roman tom and jerry and the little things. Those movies have actually done performed. Pretty well at the box office for being in the pandemic being a lot of the theaters are closed. So it's not as if theaters aren't making money off of these films they are. The real catch is going to be when ryan. The last dragon comes from disney plus. Because that's a big film. It's on disney. Plus if i that premier access but it's also supposed to be deers and we'll see how well that does but anyway back to paramount plus. I think that they're definitely trying to check a lot of boxes and it'll be interesting to see if they'll be able to maintain everything that they're trying to do the advantages they don't have their news aspect of. Cbs has always been on broadcasts which they controlled. They don't have to worry about cable channel or cable providers getting upset because cnn content is being offered on hbo max warnermedia would have to they can have. Cbs news run all day if they want because they control cbs news. It's not airing on any sort of cable channel. Same thing with cbs. Sports is the exact same thing. So i think ultimately it's smart for what they're trying to do. They're trying to check a lot of boxes to be kind of the place to go to get a lot of content. The showtime thing would be the smartest thing to like bring inside the folded in some way because if they were doing it inside the fold they the offering not as much necessarily but higher quality content. That is you know that that's is comparable to some of the content that hbo offers. And i think that would be really good for them because they offer a ton of content on their broadcast channel and the other channels none other content super stands out amongst a lot of things. I will say that. Some of the channel of the shows that they have on their normal broadcast station or some of the best shows that do very well when it comes to license shows on. Netflix is because they just. That's what happened. That's just how it works. So i think ultimately they're checking a lot of boxes. They're they're they're going to try to be the one stop shop that a lot of the streaming services are it's nice that they already have sports steals in place because of cbs sports that they can bring that stuff immediately into the fold that stuff that's unfortunately peacock has had to slowly start building. Hbo max who knows what their plans are with sports and you know the other ones that they're doing what they're doing so i think that's that's where i match as far as what i think. Now the one thing that. I want to kind of end this. The paramount plus talk about is there is a couple of news. Bits that came out during the up fronts specifically that netflix is going to be creating transformer. My little pony shows animated shows that are branded with and that amazon is going to be working in a live action. gi joe series centered around lady. Jay and i. And i have to say this is a very important thing to bring up when it comes to paramount plus in paramount viacom. Cbs as a whole is that they already have existing deals with a lot of different streaming services. They nickelodeon has a deal in place with netflix. to have not only content. Come to netflix's from nickelodeon but also to have content. That are to create original content for netflix. That's not necessarily on nickelodeon and that's a very interesting thing. There's also a deal in place with paramount to create content for amazon. That's where jack ryan came from. That's where this joe series will come from that. There's a couple of other projects that are in place that also that fall in with paramount as well. And if you remember correctly back when hp before hbo max launched and we were talking about hbo and one or media is a company were media makes a lot of content for other providers in general not necessarily treating services but they've been making content for years and years and years for broadcast channels cable channels streaming services. They've been making a lot of content and one of the things that we always questioned was whether or not they could find that fine line of still creating good content that they could sell to other providers but also create original content. That does very well for themselves. To bolster hbo max's offerings. And obviously they have figured it out to a degree because they are still creating content elsewhere. They're still creating more original content as they ramp up production on things for hp max. Originals paramount is in the exact same boat in the sense of they already have these existing deals in place some of which are going to keep some of their content away from them for a while. Some of the popular series on netflix. Some of the most popular series on netflix are currently. Cbs viacom. cbs shows that would otherwise be on. Hbo would otherwise be paramount. Plus but instead are going to be on netflix for the foreseeable future. So there's a reason why they just announced they're going to be doing a reboot or a new version of criminal minds is because consistently criminal minds is one of the top shows on netflix. And they don't have access to that show for awhile so they're going to create a new one for paramount. Plus it's one of the reasons. Why one of the new shows announced was bringing rugrats. Back in a new form for paramount pluses because some of the nickelodeon content that is really popular is sitting over there at net flicks. They're going to reboot. I carly which was another show. That's done very well on netflix. So it's just important to note like you know when you get to the larger studios disney is very self contained. They don't make a lot of content outside of them outside of what the what they brought in recently with fox they don't make a lot of content for other studios when it comes to para paramount or viacom. Cbs and warnermedia they make a lot of content. Elsewhere nbc universal. They don't make they make a good amount of content but again they're not they're not making content necessarily as widespread as viacom. Cbs warnermedia so they're content that they're making a lot of his in house for their own stations and things like that but they're not necessarily making a lot of content for other other avenues. So i just wanna bring that up. Because i think it's it's an interesting point where i think ultimately you should. There should be a lot of comparisons in the long run between paramount plus an hbo. Max when you know as far as the successful miss of them goes cbs. All access is going to be the foundation of how paramount plus gets to be a significant player in this game immediately but it has the ability to international as well all right so then to wrap up the entire episode. There's just one final note. This isn't necessarily streaming related. But i think it's worth mentioning just because we've talked about this in the past so it was announced. At and t. is spinning off directtv. At and t. tv now and you've verse into a new company that their value in at sixteen point two five billion dollars. We've talked about direct tv and how their subscriber rates keep going down. And how does each continue to bleed that and you know not worry about investors coming at them and we all know that based off of their three here there are. Three tiers of focus. Wireless was one. The internet's was one. An internet in general fiber internet and wireless and then Hbo max was the other one. Those are the main tears. They're focusing on as far as pay tv. They're not focusing on that as much. Because there's just not the long term growth that they need for that to be successful so they have an investor that has actually come into by part of that new company to have a chunk of that company. And i think ultimately it's going to turn into those things could end up being completely spun out and have nothing to do with. At and then at and t. just strictly focuses on internet wireless and then obviously media with warnermedia. Hbo max and things like that. But i just thought it was worth mentioning because we've talked about each success somehow. Being linked to the fact that direct tv exis- and eighteen to university exists in this eighteen thousand tv now thing that they tried multiple different versions and it never really took off and if they separate it. Maybe there's a little bit better chance for them to potentially get more sports things that aren't related to the pay tv side of things or you know there there's maybe a better option for them to have live channels necessarily on. Hbo max that they wouldn't have had to. They were competing against themselves. When it comes to these other pay tv options. So just worth mentioning. This was i think. Really good news to hear directtv. I it was it was a good acquisition at the time it made it made sense but now it's just been huge drain and eighteen side is. They're moving forward with the new direction with you. elliott management. You know coming in being way more hands on investor and just just trying to push the company to cut costs head. Move forward you know. Get rid of business lines. That just don't really make sense. Eighteen headed to steal just directive us. Just you know holding down. It just made sense. Sometimes you have to move forward in a think. It is clear many different levels of leadership at t. and hbo macs more than media. Let's let's do two things that were good at and lead by things that we're not re reorganize around this principle. So it makes sense. I think is i think on the show. We talked about how this is something they should do or do something about direct. Tv in terms of it's just been dragging them down and i'm glad that they've taken the steps to spend this as a company in just before. I think it's just sad if you look at the numbers. The amount that they paid to acquire direct tv and then just the amount of the three businesses that they put together to spin off into their own business Was three three orders of magnitude smaller on this. Just it just shows how much money the the direct tv unit in eighteen. To uber's all those things have just lost eighteen general so it makes sense that it could be its own company. Hopefully the company could be successful. Just what it does and not be authored burdened by the rest of the business. Absolutely with all of that being said that is going to be.

"paramount" Discussed on The Streaming Wars
"Of television while i'm working. I listen to music. Rather so i get but i can honestly see a bunch of people subscribing discovery plus and using as background content that you don't have to pay attention to very indepth. She's not the content. That's for me but it makes perfect sense as to why they're succeeding because that is why they've always succeeded with all their channels on their normal broadcast channels in the past. I'm gonna be honest. I'm surprised by these numbers of discovery. Plus kudos to them for growing having eleven million subscribers. That's that's great but but once again it. I am a little surprised that that that happened. Yeah i think that some people can be a little bit caught up in the numbers and see one thing. That's you know. The free cash flow metric plunged by four hundred million four hundred forty million dollars. No this past quarter but you know they they blame covid nineteen i mean they just launched streaming service and it takes a lot of capital to start streaming service and grow and they're putting in a lot of content as well so that number is not really Concerning i know some people probably look at that and what it is. I think it's interesting. How they notice the issue with the revenue in terms of like advertising has taken a little bit of a dip in international ads in you know domestic as well. It's it's interesting how you know this business model is based on okay. Part part subscription part at based models in its You're seeing it with you know discovery plus in other streaming services as well as twenty twenty. It's been kind of weird year in terms of advertising and how that can affect the streaming services them as they launched before each acts. I feel like his notice is trending. They've put off their advertising model. Might just be. Because they don't have the together and they just have formalized their plan yet but it could also be the twenty six year terms of advertising space. And so it's interesting to see how you know their take on on. That just worked due to this part of the business model overall congratulations to discovery plus a surprise me future right the moving away from numbers. There's a bunch of obvious Entertainment news you can find the show notes but one of the things that was real big was up fronts. Were past two weeks. T up fronts and one of the things. Obviously there's tons of projects that were announced like. I said you'll find a lot of that stuff in the show notes but there was one that stood out to me specifically outside of some of the stuff. We're going to talk about paramount. Plus which is the fact that it's one or media in general as has unveiled an ambitious preschool. Kids block on both each max and cartoon network and they're planning on having at least fifty originals for a for the preschool age children by twenty twenty three now. This isn't really a huge surprise necessarily specifically because while it's not necessarily a surprise that they're going after a children's content and they're going to be ramping up children's content. I think a lot of people did not assume that. Hbo max would be the service that a lot of children will use. However i i would assume that if if if parents are paying fifteen dollars a month they're definitely going to utilize children's content on the services. Well they done a good job of keeping obviously establishing profiles away having kids content being able to be rated. So that everything that you can you can basically change. Just how exactly like how. Disney plus has their content age based so that way depending on. How old you are you get. You get suggested certain content within the app itself. But it's nice. To see that there's a ton of new content obviously. Hbo made or hbo is a company on hbo. Max peo- years ago made a huge deal with bringing sesame street over to the platform and then in the subsequent re airings would occur on. Pbs but sesame street was a big bring into the company to expand hbo. Max family at the time. And i think that's this new block of programming that they're doing a cartoon network which will with content as will also be available on each. Max is huge for the market of parents who want to get more value out of the streaming service and have that. Netflix has been saying for years. That money is in animation. And that's why they've been you know they've been promising that they're gonna do multiple animated films per year and things like that and we know that in general and we've talked about this on multiple occasions content when it comes to kids content. Youtube is extremely popular and if they can nail this ad kant or they can nail this content before they roll out there. Ad-supported version man. They're going to be rolling in a lot of money that let's just say that i absolutely agree. It's it's yes seeing this article in seeing the amount of content amount of money in and just frankly the amount of just timing investments and like yes. Some places can just say okay recruit a lot of content but just seeing the organization of warnermedia. Really get behind the study of children's content it just it just proves once again proves obvious that chavis jimmy service. You need to have more than you gotta. You gotta target audience as possible. You can't just target a single one. I think if we were to categorize. I think max right now. It is definitely leaning more towards targeting. The adults as it's built out of hbo the other shows at primarily permit to entertain adult suggests. There are some some content that seemed for younger kids but just the current state platforms it. It is pretty much centered at that one demographic for them to survive for them to grow. They have to targets on all these different graphics. Disney disney plus. It's just a comparison. Is they both started relatively relatively soon from now on versus. Like you know netflix. Sh- which started while back Disney crack ton of children's content. And i think that's why they are so far ahead of i think a lot of estimates and people's expectations because just the amount of kids that they have to go back to warnermedia needs crewmax. The this is great looking at the minutia. In looking at this it is interesting how they rebranded cartoon network which Growing up cortina work was always wasn't aimed at over children. It seemed more of the middle school age. I felt like had a little. More mature cartoons. Nothing like south park but just a. It's a step up from normal preschool cartoons it was more of a edgier version. I guess if you look at it like they know the disney channel happened. If i were that compare strike now in. Its really interesting to see okay. The they've rebranded to work. It's going to be aimed for all kids And that's gonna push for a lot of the continent there. It's interesting how they now have a a preschool initiative. If you look at other cartoon news services yesterday the clearly the certain shows appeal to certain no difference kids ages and kids ranges from but seeing warnermedia actually have a push on the preschool. Front is pretty interesting and this initiative is carl called carlito which is funding. But it's it's a whole preschool programming block. That aimed as a quote support each child's unique potential These different shows going to you. Incorporate the principles of a preschool educational framework. It's called human human centric. Learning it is was developed by psychologists. Dr laura brown and i think it was just really interesting. The specific deep dive on driscoll content. Really going forward to okay. Let's let's built us out here. The principles kids are going to watch a lot of content. How can we assure parents helped. Develop kids overall is just really interesting to see. How full fledge warnermedia's approach to the kids. And kidney nationless was modesto. Think it's interesting had this idea of preschool programming and the human centric learning educational framework. You don't really see that from other media companies usually just okay. Let's just create content. That can get is on here in really meant to sell toys but the fact of okay. Let's try to develop essentially curriculum that is going to support in a power kids. I feel pretty rare. It is and when i look at content in general being apparent and looking at content. That's out there absolutely agree one. With what your statement was about cartoon network being geared towards more middle schoolers or older not necessarily meant for younger children all cartoon network is never had content outside of like maybe classic cartoons urges men for anybody. They've never really had content. That's meant for a younger age range Obviously had nick junior. They're blocked disney his head. Disney junior obviously pbs has has content secured more towards the younger crowd. And then there's a channel called sprout which a lot of pbs content. That's on cable as well. That also is geared more towards preschool children or younger and the thing is outside of sesame street between. Hbo max hbo family. Which was the old block of family programming that they had on hbo in the mornings for kids and cartoon network. There really isn't a whole lot of content that has existed outside of some of like i said those classic cartoons that really are there really worked for for younger children and even the classic cartoons do not have any any necessarily educational value. Let's say when with the content. They're giving it's entertaining children entertained but it's not educational the only content. That's really educational that each has had been sesame street which they acquired a while back so the thing is ultimately they've got. They've got a huge area that they have the chance to grow. And i think that's that's really big for them. And i think it's really smart because disney succeeds at having a lot of content for younger children. The younger children are the ones who probably watch more content than maybe some of the older children by the time. Children get a little bit older. Maybe they hang out. Maybe start playing video games. Maybe they're involved in sports not necessarily watching things as maybe as frequently as as younger children might be so. I think that when it comes to this it's very very important for them to hit this block and maybe the other part of this is that maybe they were looking at their content offerings. I remember they had that. Everybody has that quadrant of male female and then age range of how old the the the ages are. And they're probably looking at their quadrants of demographics and thinking to themselves. Okay where do we. What do we have. And if i remember correctly each wheel max was supposed to answer the question of. Here's a lot more content. That's geared towards females and not necessarily males because each continent already is kind of leaning towards older males and they had content. Obviously that works for children but not necessarily younger children. So i think it's important for them to hit all of the different demographics. That's obviously extremely important. The last thing. I just want to talk about this is obviously. It just remains the question. The question that remains for me is what happens with the streaming service. Boomerang which is part of where media. It's basically a parking place for an insane amount of kids content that if you actually look at the content that they offer over there they have an excessive amount of content that is not necessarily available on hbo. Max and i have to wonder as i have always stated how long it will take before that content ends up getting ported over to hbo max because while the price. The price point is significantly less expensive than each max there. There's a lot of content that could be rolled into each max add value to hbo. Max four children in general so the fact that they're spending money on new content. I applaud that. But i have to wonder in the back of my head. What's eventually going to happen with. Boomerang because it's literally just a bunch of content that it has no other place to be except for right there. At this immediate point occasionally you'll see content rotate between hbo max and boomerang and back and forth. But i have to say it's only a matter of time before i think that content ends up getting ported over so with that the last service update we've got is just quick one. The apple tv app has officially launched on chromecast google tv. I've been waiting for this moment for a long time. So i'm glad it happened. There's not much more to say other than that. I just wanted to say. I'm very happy that it happened. already plotting which shows i'm going to start watching with my wife. Having watched some of the trailers for the shows to get her feel on some of them. Because i think a lot of them are could be really good at least from what i've heard and when i see and i'm excited to actually dive into apple tv plus in the immediate future all right so with that. Let's jump into paramount plus so paramount plus the twenty fourth of february unveiled. What they're going to do. Basically transforming cbs access into paramount plus but specifically. Telling them what it's going to include the prices and all of that so it's officially launching on march fourth the base price which is ad-supported is going to be four ninety nine. That will release in june. It's not going to release it launch. But the at launch the premium tier which is ninety nine will will launch on march fourth. All both both versions will include sports news and entertainment now. This is in enticing for a lot of people especially the sports. Because i think this is obviously. We've been talking a lot about sports since the beginning of the year and how it plays into these streaming services. They say they'll be exclusive live sports available. There will be nfl. Football live and there will be more live. Cbs sports content as part of the premium tier as far as news. They will have the cbs news. And cbs news on demand. There will also be a cbs news network and live local stations available on the premium tier as far as entertainment. There will be exclusive originals thousands of originals thirty thousand tv episodes from.

"That's also something that's already has. They mentioned these things that would you would expect a service to have in terms of technological features will they didn't give us like a walk through of what it's gonna look like and i think that's particularly important because cbs all access as an app is one of the like worst among streaming services like it's not known for being technologically polished and so we don't the assumption is that cbs has said that they've revamped the technology that delivers the service to but they didn't show it. They didn't show us what that's going to look like. And you know there's only so much you can really take from. What exactly is that. A company say they've done to its ecological platform. If they don't show you what it is. You don't have the chance to get your fingers on it and really see it. So it'll be interesting to see if they're just sort of like changing the logos on the app and basically offering the exact same app. Cbs all access. Which i think is going to be a mistake but yeah to answer your questions. Some of the things that. I think we're surprising that they didn't tell us. Some some of those important items because certainly an app actually working well is is as important as having really great content for sure says woe last entries in the string wars and another as she. This already are multiple. Times is as each new entrant comes in. Is this too much too many services where where's the sort of fit in in your mind who is the ideal paramount plus trevor. Yeah that's a good question. I'm sure paramount plus has an answer for. But i mean i mean maybe it's better to think about in terms of the other streaming services. They have so little another thing that surprised me is that paramount plus didn't announce an integration with like showtime the streaming upper showtime. They did say that down the line. They would have discount and bundles where you could be. Paramount plus subscriber and then sort of add on showtime subscription to that. So you don't have to separate apps we assume so. You don't have to separate apps you need to gut you actually but yeah. They didn't give us any details on that either. My point is.

Tv shows as well I can't imagine it's it's super resident for for a lot of younger consumers that you're going apper well actually if you go do research on the paramount brand and and we did When you find is a things one has you ear. Universal brand awareness as high as any other brand essentially in the entertainment business to That's true on globe's three. It's actually very good on demographic basis better than you just suggested. There is very wide brand awareness of paramount next year associated with just films television why because probably paramount logos than seen on a lot of television sets And it stands for super high quality entertainment in fact when we did research one of the cds. All access franchises as you know star trek in. That's compelling original programming. that's now available in three versions on cd. S all access and we're continuing to build it out. We got nickelodeon version coming cetera. There was a tremendous association of star trek impairment. So on the brand is very powerful on. It was our research said. It was by far the best choice.

"The Supreme Court announced its decision on. May. Third Nineteen, forty, eight the studios were once again found guilty of violating antitrust laws block booking was deemed illegal and the big change studios could no longer operate as integrated systems of production distribution and exhibition Arcadio was the first to go it. Was Broken up on November eighth nineteen, forty eight paramount was the second to enter into divorcement in February the following year, and while the remaining studios fought and actually went back to court. The outcome was ultimately the same. The studio system was done. block-booking booking was over and distribution deals would be done individually for films going forward. Finally giving independent producers a fair chance in the business, the consent decrees entered. into by the studios were known as the paramount consent decrees as the years wore on Zucca retained the title of Chairman of the Board at paramount though was less involved in the business. It was considered more of an honorific title for him. Eventually, he was still chairman when he died in nineteen, seventy six at the age of a hundred and three, and now we get to what's sparked my interest in doing. Stuff in the first place because on August seventh. Twenty twenty. A month ago is we record this seventy two years after the Supreme Court's ruling. In the paramount case, the decrees were deemed outdated by the Department of Justice US District. Court Judge Annalisa. Torres ruled the due to a changing marketplace and Antitrust law that it is unlikely that a future violation would happen. The judge's ruling also states that quote termination of the decrees does not give. Or other market participants free rein sue employment the same anti-competitive practices. The decrees remedied termination simply implies that this court in performing a quote necessarily forward-looking and probabilistic evaluation. Determined that termination would be in the public interest. If there is a future violation, however that party would be subject to the liability under the full extent of federal and state antitrust laws. As they are today given the changing marketplace the court finds it is unlikely that the remaining defendants would collude to once again limit their film distribution to select group of theaters and the absence of the decrees and fines therefore, that termination is in the. Public interest. So the industry is now in a two year sunset period of the decrees. So this will all come and be done with in two thousand, twenty, two independent theatre owners and filmmakers have already criticized the decision. We will see how this unfolds in the coming months. We can kind of get to live through a new phase of what we thought was settled history. D have some listener mail to take out I do this is. A listener mail from our listener Jane that delayed me.

"ATLANTA. That's comparison because Atlanta's great show and this could be that for peacock. So peacock definitely does need more shows in general that are very compelling and are going to draw people in, and if peacock can start getting content as good as the content that we've seen like with the fx on Hulu content or in some regards maybe not to the same production quality but something to the degree of HBO, Max like Writing Quality and things like that. I think that peacock has a potential to really grow their actual subscriber count just sign up. So all right. So Niche Streaming Services Fund mission has expanded. Their offerings with the new deal from the media, we have no news for any other providers. Our main discussion is an interesting one. So there was H tweets that popped up from Nick Turner. Over on twitter he goes by the handle newsy nick and there was a quote that he pulled from Bloomberg article that specifically said Disney plus which debuted in. November signed up remarkable sixty point five, million subscribers in its first ten months e seven dollars a month service was priced to make it very attractive. McCarthy said and the rate could climb in the near future. McCarthy. Says it's clear that we priced Disney. At very accessible price point initially, there is pricing power we believe that will come as we put more original content into the services. So Nick Turner, he specifically said Disney, definitely seems to be telegraphing that Disney plus price hike is coming be surprised. That's not nine ninety, nine a month before the end of the year that is our discussion specifically this time around I will say personally, I think that the idea of a price hike before the end of the year is unlikely and I say that because outside of the man delorean, they don't have any other high profile content that's to hit the service. If Falcon Winter soldier hits the service it's going to be very, very late twenty twenty because they still haven't wrapped production in that series even though it was originally supposed to launch an August obviously with production. Holtz and all of that it got to lead. They just recently got back to production and I don't see that series coming up before the end of the it's just not likely to happen. So if that's not happening, they don't have any other big content man delorean by itself. Sure is going draw and some people and things like that but I don't see them being able to do the price. Point until they have at least a couple of marvel series under their belt along with some of the other, maybe need tear stuff like you know that we've heard of all of these reboots. If got the mighty ducks series, they've got a home alone reboot. There's a lot of different projects that I think are like mid level where it's not the typical. Well, here's some random animated thing that we have. You know that we're not really going to publicize a bunch about or the behind the scenes things that we keep seeing is just kind of filler content that's been on the service, but I honestly. Believe, by the end of twenty, twenty one, it's definitely likely. We could see a price like the one thing I will say is there was a lot of people initially who paid upfront for three years and they're not obviously going anywhere. Those are the people that you know you. I. Was one of them. I paid up front for three years because I thought it was a good deal at the time made no sense not to pay for something because it was like it came out to like five dollars a month I wanted to say it was even less than that. I think it was like. Fifty bucks a year three years one, hundred and fifty for three years. If you paid upfront which compared to the current price of seven dollars a month year saving a bunch of money I? Mean you're saving more than two dollars every single month with that at that rate. But that's not to say that you know the price wouldn't go up. I. Honestly think that at the end of twenty twenty one will probably have the mandatory and season three. You'll have falcon winter soldier, the low key series Juan Division at the very least maybe another one is well plus all these other mid tier content shows. As well, it's definitely possible that they they raise the price and I but I, but I will say there's a limit on how high they can raise the price because as as it stands right now, there is not enough content to warrant it being anywhere near the price of Netflix I mean there's content on the service and there's there's there's lots of obviously library content that's older but that content is the same as the amount of content output that Netflix's doing so can't get close to the price of Netflix it also can't get up there too much price because then the bundle between it and Hulu and ESPN plus starts creeping up to in that bundle he pricier the Netflix Hbo Max? which wouldn't help them either. So that's the one thing to keep in mind with that. What is your take on a potential price? I tend to agree with you I, think that's a price. Increase is inevitable for many different reasons but for me pure racial perspective like they have sixteen customers paying a relatively low fee mom in terms of the streaming space, of course, they have room to room bump opened up in they also have room to just just cash. So from from that alone, it makes sense that. There's eventually at some point in time going to be a price increase. Now, just the timing of it I think if there's at any time where there is going to be price increase within twenty twenty, it would be around when the main Lawrence to comes out. However, I'm about twenty to twenty, five percent positive that that would happen. So likely city percents up saying it's not going to happen just because of of where Disney is. Now, we weren't during a couple of pinned making Disney's biggest market right now does he plus biggest market is United States where a little bit of economic hot mess in. People having less. Let's let's cash to spend a different places. I don't think it'd be wise is a business move with Disney to raise price increase right now in to potentially asaf customers who are doing their best just to get by I I. Don't think that that's going to be a good business model into just from that alone I think twenty, twenty one there's probably a price increase as Disney Disney plus figures out how to monetize the movies that make men to get their the television shows like particularly ones trying to figure out how to shoot those in a way that is safe. For the actors and save for the production crew but able to actually at time you know at ours facing plays and then you have a pandemic that shutting down the really hurts. So it feels that they're they're trying to figure that out and learning get their step pretty soon about that. So yeah, I think there is going to be price increase. Now, there is going to be an upper limit in agree with you because it's based off the amount of content that they have and they have a significant amount of content but as an adult trying to eat choose streaming service, I, want it if if. If I was a kid and I just had money like Disney plus thing. But this one, just my daughter does love Disney plus in Georgia's lot shows on there and it's a great cause. You can download content line for your Amazon fire devices and she has one..

"Say, okay, this is what we've got and it's not GonNa Change, there is still room to change registered each max but all the services as know as they come out, we've got paramount plus now coming soon, peacock launched obviously very recently there are all going to shift and change their focus and things like that. It's all and even to this day I mean that's we've seen them start to focus on. Content that maybe isn't as expensive, but does Garner a lot of eyeballs for the service with some of the reality shows that they've been doing. Recently services are constantly evolving I. think that's an important thing to point out. So when people sit there and I this this, this frustrates me because I enjoy Hbo Max I don't think it's actually that expensive because at previous was already subscribing the HBO as as Standalone Services by itself to for me I can see the value in Hbo Max I think it's a great service. Is there room for? It to grow and get better absolutely. But I think that a lot of the criticism, a lot of the pundits out there have said about Hbo Max I think some of its you know they're comparing apples to oranges and that's the part that annoys me. All right. Then finally with Hbo Max, according to add sales each wheel Max add to your could be coming in quarter two of twenty twenty one that's like spring twenty, twenty one and that's specifically because it seems like, Hbo Max or somebody within. One OR MEDIA IS STARTING TO SELL A. LOT OF AD blocks won't previously available at for network space and things like that. So that's really surprised if if that that if it does happen early twenty, twenty one, I think that an ad here sincerely, sincerely help out service but also get a lot more people to join the service because I think there's a lot of people who don't mind the fact that there's ads I think it's just a matter of each HBO content figuring out how to make that work within the AD world. By personally I, think it could be A. Good thing for Hbo Max as a whole angry I don't think it's going to be a supernet negative if they can structure their ad their offering a lot like Hulu where ees yes. You pay for lower price in their ads but I don't expect them to have like a true true Avon where the contents free threads reading this article it does seem there's a lot of effort in research into the appropriate amount of at time per hour of television or a power streaming time the service in his seems that industry executives were very aware. Of the fact that like Annette where TV sixteen minutes usually average of ads per hour of of content where for different streaming services, it seems like the is between three to five minutes of ads. So it's nice to see that they're very cognizant of that and aware that hey, like you can't just compare you can't just copy over which she did from Kimball side of things to destroying. However you need for for adds to work. You need people to see them in one of the streaming Woah one, AD agency executive said if you. Launch a platform on Amazon. You know the fire in Roku, did you actually launch in? That's a sums up whites feel like me and you both US didn't have said for wile about HBO Max. Warning. Me Not being to come to a deal with Amazon to get each real max onto fire devices and getting intro Max on Roku devices like they they the brokers about forty percent of the streaming gadget for presented of how people stream TV's, and then he got Amazon fire, which is a good by ten percent or something than everybody. Else has been close and so because of this, it's yes they are talking about projections of okay. Like here's Max here's what think that we can offer you and here's how we think they should be able to go down but there's a lot of not confusion I think by these agency executives just seems like a lot of uneasiness because these numbers are not really are not necessarily true whenever they do get onto Roku Amazon what you think they will eventually they're in half to if nothing is done business decision but assuming the do eventually. It's what is from access to reach and right now you have a certain price point for these intros putting out a certain price point for the block times and stuff, and these these agencies could absorb it unsure because they don't actually know if this is a good deal but deal because it could be there right now that they're not including Roku in or Amazon like these prices thing to steal the future because they they locked in right now versus you wait a little bit of the due to deal h maximum more devices like Jose. down. So there's a lot to say here and it's nice to see that other people are looking Max little bit skepticism of it is intriguing product. There is a lot to offer consumers into very interesting great content, but there's still some distribution issues i. think that's the biggest thing that's going to hurt each Mexico, but is getting people on board in convincing them that okay. We've got distribution figure it out it's going to be fine because. they have a serious problem. Yes I agree. All right. Jimmy over to peacock. Peacock has announced that their sign ups have jumped fifty percent in six weeks. They were at ten million six weeks ago, and now they're up to fifteen million sounds. Now, it's not necessarily specifically paying subscribers but that is people who have signed up because as you remember, there is that free tier within peacock that obviously adds to the overall sign up number. Peacock has won the bid for the reimagined first Prince of bel-air series. This was after we. I believe it was two episodes ago we talked about this Hbo Max was considered along with peacock or both said to be the to services that were very interested in potentially this will peacock his wanted. So what I said last episode where with fish fresh Prince Hbo Max, Reunion? Well, if HBO was hoping to Garner some attention with that they, they cannot wait for the reunion special to give them the information that they needed because he ended up security and not only that but also secured two seasons. That's just a season, but he got quarter two seasons of the show so that is going to. Be Coming in the future to peacock yeah, I was I was quite surprised that they wanted the bed between I. Think Everyone thought that the presenter favorites would be Hbo Max but not good for peacock for winning this bed a little bit hesitant about the show but the more I've dived into it in the more I've seen the plans for it seems really be peacock's version of Atlanta. I'm of having a show focused on you a blind character and showing his life all the way through in different parts of that and how difficult is to black America I, think that it could be something. Really Special, and hopefully the people give it give a chance. There's a lot of criticisms a lot of criticism criticism. I can't say the word online about the show and it's like we don't want another media company ruining a show that was good back in the day. But I think that this can can really be something and hope that people do give a shot because I think it can really touch hearts like the first one. Did you know it's going to be different? It's going to be the same to comedy, but but it could definitely tell message. So it looks interesting in Gif Peacock. They desperately need some new indecent in good original content shows checked out some of them intelligence man that was that was rough show. Yeah. There's a couple of shows on there that I have been meaning to watch, but I haven't watched but I mean, yeah, I think ultimately they do need a slate of shows draw more people in in this show. If you've seen the fan trailer that was originally made that this whole new version of the show is going to be based off of it is really really good and it's it's it's exactly what you said about how it could potentially be peacocks..

It was filing a motion to get rid of the paramount consent decrees amid the case that the movie industry had changed. These rules have been designed to end end quote horizontal conspiracy by the movie studios in the age of net flicks. HBO and Amazon Prime. That conspiracy was over. The Eric says even though they're nowhere near as powerful as they were in the forties studios today have plenty of leverage even with the current rules in place the studios have gotten more powerful especially in the past several years because the box office has grown. Really top heavy. You could call it the the avengers effect so if you look at the top five highest grossing movies so far this year they're movies like avengers endgame and the the Lion King those five releases alone have accounted for about twenty seven percent of the annual box office. So he's got some movies that that are just too big to pass up. Explain that think about it. If you are a theater owner and you see a movie like avengers on the release schedule you know. Oh you cannot pass it up it's too lucrative. You're going to too many tickets now. What that means is that Disney can go to you and say look we know you wanna a show avengers so instead of giving us you know fifty five percent of ticket sales like you normally do? We want sixty five percent now. If you're a big chain like say AMC you might have room to push back on Disney's sixty five percent not so much if you're an indie going alone and it's not just ticket sales for big movies like avengers. A studio might tell a theater. You WanNa show our movie. You've got to run it for four whole weeks now if you have a multiplex with twelve screens in it like who cares right. You can run a movie for a month. No big deal but if you're an independent operator in a small town and you have one screen screen. You're going to show that movie to everyone in your town in one or two weeks right but you're still stuck with it for an extra two weeks or so and those are two weekends that you really really aren't making any money at all. Even before the Justice Department started reviewing the paramount consent decrees Campbell struggled with this like two years ago he had to decide and whether or not to show star wars at a single screen theater in miles city Disney required him to show the movie for four weeks star. Wars was a four week commitment commitment for me so you know that it's going to kill her business the first two weeks in your over Christmas. So it's it's a nice timeframe but the next two weeks it's just GonNa the do nothing because everybody in town's basically seen it by that point exactly Disney says it tries to keep the booking terms consistent no matter the theatre size but in this is case miles cities star wars fans still lost out. Instead of booking star Wars Campbell decided to play a Will Ferrell movie called Daddy's home. They came with a shorter commitment. And these are the pressures theater owners face under the current rules without them. Campbell is concerned about his own theaters and others. He chairs the independent cinema lines. What worries you most? I would imagine block-booking block-booking remember. This is the idea that if you WANNA play his girl Friday you also have to show babies for sale. It's those all or nothing deals Eric. Described Bill says if block-booking makes a resurgence surgeons. It could quickly book up his single screen theater for his whole year. It takes up your screen space. Where you can't bring in movies that would do better for for you and for the public's interest and then there's that other practice Eric mentioned circuit dealing if the decrees are scrapped? Then studios will have the option to make exclusive deals with chains like AMC in Regal to only show some films in those theaters so circuit dealing has the potential of actually icing Outta Outta independent from any movie. If a studio were to make a deal only with one circuit to play product throughout the country independence wouldn't be able to play of that product which is actually again detrimental to all inventors and the consumer. Who lives in your town not being able to see that product because if there's not an AMC theater or whatever it is is in town you're out of luck right? The fear is you would have to drive hundreds of miles much. Like if you WANNA see Broadway play for bill. These are worse Chris case scenarios. But Eric says it's not clear yet whether or how the studios will take advantage of their new freedom. You know the studios. I talked to a couple apple distribution executives who told me that before the DOJ was looking into this they had talked about. Potentially lobbying to get these rules was repealed but they ultimately decided it's not worth it And so I think no one's expecting a major sea change overnight but they are expecting maybe more incremental changes. It might be kind of like a buy one. Get One situation right where you want to show this movie in June. Well it would really help. If you show this movie in in April I well so what I find. Striking about. This story is just how much the entertainment industry is starting to look like like it did in the nineteen forties. I mean now you have these big streaming platforms like Netflix. That are not only making their own shows but also controlling rolling distribution through their own studios and streaming companies so in many ways things kind of look like back the way they used to. Yeah you're right that we might not necessarily zero. have things like warner brother contract players. You know where movie stars say. I'm making all my movies at this studio. But you're right that when you have Ryan Murphy Your J.J. Abrams signing these mega deals with certain production companies and then those same production companies producing adducing movies and releasing those movies or TV shows on their own streaming platforms. They are trying to control as many steps of the process as as they can. The Justice Department has said it will keep a close eye on the industry and that it will step in if it sees any anticompetitive or anti consumer Moore behavior just like it did in the forties the DOJ said quote antitrust enforcers. Remain Ready to act for. Now everyone's waiting to see how the movie going landscape is going to change in what the studios might do. And no one is watching more closely than Bill Campbell. How do you think the big studios think about you a small movie theater owner? It's a very good question. If you look at independence in where depending on how you define us. But you know we're we're between seventeen and twenty eight percent of the market so we're kind of the gravy right everything that they spend if you can make twenty percent off that you're doing well and so I hope that they consider US valuable. But whether or not studios audio's considers small theaters valuable though cedars do have a strong hold on the way. A lot of Americans imagine going to the movies. What's under threat? Here era is the most evocative image of moviegoing. We have which is like the small town main street. USA Movie Theater because of like one thing after are another. It seems in recent years becoming more and more of an endangered species..

"This new threat two small theatres has its roots far from Hollywood in Washington. DC where a few years ago Justice Department lawyers began looking over some very old antitrust rules. Their goal was to do some housekeeping clear the cobwebs as they the Department of Justice under the trump administration has decided they they are going to take a look at dozens of regulatory settlements that they suspect are antiquated or anachronistic. Eric Shorto covers the film industry industry. They're trying to find ways to tell voters that they've gone through. Essentially cleared all of these settlements settlements. That are no longer necessary. These antitrust rules are called settlements because they literally came out of lawsuits starting more than one hundred years ago the Justice Department and has been suing companies to stop any competitive behavior. They'd sue reach a settlement with the company and that settlement would set out industry specific rules rules designed to level the playing field some of the industries the DOJ took on were big monopolies like oil and railroads others were a little more S. O.. Teric I mean. Some of the settlements under review are really random. I mean there are even some that. Concern the typewriter industry or the horseshoe into. I don't mean I don't know how many like horseshoe manufacturers are still worried about settlements that were passed by administration's decades ago but there there might be some there is even like a settlement was under review that concerned the sale of ice cream cones. Wow Yeah apparently. I didn't know this but apparently there was this big price fixing scheme involving ice cream cones. No kidding that sounds horrifying. I know we're going to do with an ice cream cones. Well I think we've gotten by. I mean whatever. Settlement was didn't play seems to have worked. I mean there is quite a variety of ice cream cones around these days by the end of their review. The Justice Department found thirteen hundred rules like the ice cream cone. One that they said just didn't apply anymore and should be terminated but along with all those rules regulating ice cream cones and typewriters and photographs. There was at least one set of rules. People do still care about their called. The paramount consent decrees the paramount. Consent decrees crease. Are these rules that were introduced in nineteen forty eight. There was a supreme court case called the United States versus paramount pictures and it was a landmark mark antitrust case that broke up what was considered a monopoly in Hollywood. That monopoly was the major Hollywood movie studios in the nineteen forties. He's those studios had a ton of power. Yeah like so take a movie like Casablanca right like Humphrey Bogart Ingrid Bergman. Here's looking at you Yada Yada Yada. I'm going noble. It doesn't take much to see the problems with three. Little people. Don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy. World came out in nineteen forty two was produced by Warner Brothers. I it starred Humphrey Bogart. who was a warner brothers contract player? He was under contract to make movies with Warner brothers and then it was released into movie theaters. We're owned by Warner Brothers. So you have a vertically integrated system from the casting of movie stars to the screen that the movie is played on so warner brothers. Basically Owned the stars the movies and the theater. Yeah it really is like how we've come to think of Hollywood is a factory town. There were workers who went to these studios and put out products. which are the movies? But then the means of production controlled the means of distribution. But what was the problem with that from an antitrust perspective. I mean a big isn't necessarily bad right but for example what would happen. Is it allowed the studios to essentially use theaters as has the exclusive place to see their film right. So if you wanted to see a warner brothers film you had to go to a warner brothers theater. And if you didn't live near one you might be out of Luck uh-huh and if you wanted to go see a paramount film. You had to go to the paramount theater. Yeah so it just meant that. There was less consumer choice less consumer choice and the other important thing to remember. Ryan is that movies in the nineteen forties. Were the main show. I mean more than one in two Americans went to the movies every week. So if you're looking for you know a pastime it was like there was. That wasn't much else to do. Besides go to the movies so it was also a more of a monopoly on consumers time to I guess you could probably play hopscotch or stick ball or something. Read a book. Read a book like a Nerd so the studios have all this power. And then what happened. The government sues to break it up and in nineteen forty eight. The Supreme Court rules in the government's events favor and so the agreement that emerged essentially laid the groundwork for movie distribution for more than seventy years. The paramount consent decrees as the agreement came to be known laid out a bunch of different rules for the movie industry like studios wouldn't be able to own theaters theaters anymore. They'd have to sell them and remember Bill Campbell. The theater owner in Montana. This is partly how his family got into the movie business way. Back Doc in the fifties. His Dad took over the family's biggest leader from Fox. The studio had to give it up under the new rules. And the rules. Also put an end to something called block-booking which is this kind of all or nothing deal the studios can implement so for example say Columbia Pictures knows it has a big hit on its hands a movie like his girl. Friday Columbia Studios in Hollywood comes an exciting new bill triumph. His girl Friday great story. You'll laugh breath your cry featuring a big star Ravishing Rosalind Russell. They might use that movie as leverage with the theaters. So they can and say. Hey look I know you really WanNa play this movie. Because it's like a guaranteed hit but you can't play it unless you show. These three duds duds. It's like another of Colombia's movies from the same decade babies for sale which you haven't heard of for a reason exactly right and so it's an all or nothing deal for studios block. Booking was a good way to distribute risk. Use the hits to get more exposure in money for the duds but once the consent decrees were put in place studios. News couldn't block book anymore and the rules also took aim at another strategy called circuit dealing and that is where a studio could theoretically go. Oh two one chain in particular and say. Hey I'm going to give you the exclusive rights to show my movie. You'll be the only theaters where someone can go. See this movie. In in exchange for more favourable terms. Those kinds of exclusive deals couldn't happen anymore under the paramount consent decrees one of the things that I find so interesting about. Stories is like this about business. Regulation is how so often regulations that can get set during one time period. Really have an impact on the types of of business models that emerge as a result. Oh absolutely and that's totally the case here because after the agreement in nineteen forty eight the US US theater industry started to grow in the next few decades. The number of movie screens would explode. Thanks largely to a new innovation that came about in the sixties. The innovator was Steinle Derwin who owned a theater in Kansas City. A big six hundred seater with a balcony same size and layout it actually is Bill Campbell Cedar in Montana just recently read an interview with him that was conducted many many years later and he had said that he was showing showing a movie that was pretty crappy in auditorium and it was. It was like so bad that he had closed part of the theater during later told the magazine variety that this Abbott and Castilla movie was so bad. He decided to close the theater balcony. So he wouldn't have to put an usher up there. Eight thought well if I could put another crappy film in the other part I could make double the money on these two crappy movies the multiplex was born. And then there's like this arms race through the eighties and nineties to just build as many screens under one roof as possible and I think the record was thirty as the malls are growing in popularity already. The movie theaters are being used as anchor tenants that can go in and be built up alongside the mall the issue though. Is that the theater chain start overbuilding branding and they accumulate a lot of debt in the nineties. There was a shakeout theaters went bankrupt or merged and we were left with the movie theater landscape. We have today. Half of American movie screens are owned by just three companies am see regal and cinemark. The other half is kind of a hodgepodge of regional and mid sized chains plus small operators like Bill Campbell. The theater owner in Montana many of those smaller. Our guys have had a tough time keeping up thanks to rising technology costs and increased competition from streaming. And that brings us to today. In those Justice Department apartment lawyers combing through old regulations last week the Department announced filed a motion to get rid of the paramount. Consent decrees The rules. Does that shape the film industry and help Bill Campbell build his business. Were about to change.

That was the intent, give them something different, take him outside of the the garden and take him into a completely foreign in virement that they hadn't seen before. The other thing for us on a on a separate note was being able you utilize that paramount. I think it's a paramount what they call it now, but you lies at the ater next door, which for years had been used in the garden for closed circuit TV when they would sell out the garden, they would just put the guard event up on those big screens in there. And people would pay to go see a live next door in the paramount theater. So utilizing that sell tickets for that, people got to see that it was pretty cool as a reminder.
