"The CBS shows are available for me, add free, no commercials by paying for this. And and there's something it's actually it's not bad like the combination of all the network shows the w- when I wanna watch them and all their originals in one package. I look at CBS all axis, which is very narrow. And I think this is a model like this is what Disney should take all of ABC and put it on Hulu NBC, universal should take all of NBC and put it on their new streaming service. That's like that's how you should do it. It actually makes a lot of sense. I think it really strengthens the service by basically saying we have a TV network, but you're streaming. So you're obviously not watching it. So you get these shows. Here. Instead like, I don't see the problem with that. So I have a hard time seeing them in the long run staying, but they're talking it's and one immediate will be showing their streaming service this full CO.

And it looks like something exciting. And we think we can do it too. Not so much of like us Sola. They did you wanna see it was? I think it was more rightly so that won't a media should be encouraged by Disney, and I think that wanna media really feel. Like, they have something to offer, and it's not necessarily what people think of them as having right? Like, I think we've Disney people much more aware of what Disney owns and they all wanted media. You know, like, I think the people just think of HBO is hatred go and like game of thrones is owned by the company, but it turns out it's also out by the wizard company too. So, you know, I think putting HBO at the center of the platform is smart thing. I think that that was the that's we'll see exactly what they mean by that. But like using HBO and kind of inflating it and saying, you know, HBO is going to be the start of this. And maybe it's not all of it. But it's it's the core, and it's going to do more content. If you like the Disney presentation, whether their brand tiles of like, Disney marvel and all that like wore media doing something like that where they an HBO stream. And they've got a DC superhero stream and they've got some other. You know, Harry Potter stream or whatever it is. However, they want to put that together. You got to take advantage of your brands and your intellectual property and the most powerful part. Of the Warner media kind of content development world is HBO HBO is at the center of it. So they are leaning into that. Which is interesting. Of course, a lot of people have left HBO because it's not going to be the old HBO. It's going to be this new kind of higher volume content HBO, but it's still the center of their strategy, and it should be..
