"Welcome back to the noon business hour, Tim. What's the deal here? Hi, chris. Thanks for having me. I a sense that this is one of a number of new and ongoing price promotions that benefits both Hulu and Spotify. But Hulu in particular, Hulu as as most people know right is one of the sort of prime streaming services out there that has two tiers to one is sort of a an ad free subscription service, which is a premium product for twelve ninety nine a month. And then there's also in ad-supported or lightly ad supported version for for for less. That is the crux of the expanded partnership. Between Spotify and Hulu aware. Spotify users for a limited amount of time. I think it's three months or so I will have the opportunity of basically getting the Hulu ad-supported fruition. The lesser expensive of the two four free for a couple of months and then at a reduced price coming forward. This is is this good good news for the people out there who would like a break on some of their favourite ideas, and what they like to watch. Yeah. That'd be a little less expensive. Now, at least for three months. Yes. Yes. And I think this is what you're seeing is. It's an aggressive move by Hulu to broaden their their user base. I mean, essentially, Hulu is the number three compared to a net flicks into Amazon prime in terms of number of subscribers. And you know, this is a great way to get work viewers on their basic service, and obviously grow some of their ad revenue as well. But yes, it's a nice bundle opportunity for for folks who are both Spotify potentially interested in Houla was well, Tim Hanlin always good to have you with us.

"On Wall Street, the Dow is up one hundred fifty three points. The NASDAQ fifty three the s&p is up. Fourteen oil today is up right about a half a percent WBZ news time, twelve oh. Nine money talks as the W B B M, noon business hour, continue optimism is rising that the US and China are closer to a trade agreement. We're going to update that in our next segment. But right now, the charges against the actor Jesse smell lad have caused producers in the Chicago film show. I empire they've film that has been on for five seasons now to make changes. Let's talk. About the fallout with Tim Hanlin, founder CEO of the media consultancy firm for terror group here in Chicago, Tim, this has been a lot to handle this week. I think there's been a lot of a handle on a on a whole bunch of different levels. But you know, I. Many things left in the story. I think play out and see what what all sort of shakes out, but make no mistake and certainly caused a bit of a disruption, shall we say the day to day production of of a hit show that's based here in Chicago. And you know, there's absolutely going to be some verbal rations of apple bomb the set as well as the life of of the show empire as it returns for the Rangers that season later next month how how will other producers be affected by this? Well, look, I this is I wanted to call it a quote, unquote, isolated, but it's certainly a a situation that is endemic to various players involved. You know? You know, how disruptive it is to the current production of the show. I you have to think that the actors producers and everybody sort of involved in the production of this show will not be unaffected in some way, shape or four. So. That said I I don't think it has any sort of long lasting effect on production here in Chicago, or the the the interest of people to shoot a shows here in Chicago. I I just think it'll be very interesting to get thinking about this just an economic and business terms. You know, it will you know, people from curiosity factor. Revie more interested in watching the show that might have been a month or two ago despite its already hit status because of all these because of all this these incidents, you know, I hate to say that any publicity is good publicity. But you know, in the reality is that we live in a culture where curiosity seems to Trump everything else. And you know, I think in the short term is is it's not a great time to be on the production of this show were FOX studios. But you know, it's it's a it's still a story that has a lot of things have to plan. I think it's interesting. I think you're making a good point. Because I think a lot of people something like this happens. And they assume always going to be bad for the show will the show go off the air now. But you might actually have people who haven't tuned in a while tuning in as well as people who wonder, hey, if they write his character off the show. How are they going to do that they might tune in just to be interested to see how the show handles it? Yeah. And sadly, it's a perverse kind of sort of thought pattern around all of that. Right. But that kind of in many respects, business wise just is. Interesting to the the economics around the show are largely set. My understanding that the bulk of the actors on the show, including Justice are basically contracted for seven seasons of shows the show with I think picked up I think through a six season national seventh. This is there. But to the to the extent of the show goes seven seasons or even longer all of the actors, and I believe much of the production investment basis pretty much solid in stock through through seven seasons. So there's not going to be any sort of near term disruption to the economics of the production of the show as far as I can tell. And so that is probably good news. Then also for all those people behind the scenes, you you touched on this. And when Roseanne had her issues that got her knocked off the show all the folks behind the scenes were worried about their jobs is well, if all the rest of the cast members are locked up, then it's not going to have a sort of. A wider impact beyond just well being challenging for a while. Well, also part of a very robust production a business for television and movies here in the city. I mean, you've got basically Chicago fire in Chicago PD in Chicago med in Chicago. I don't know golf course. Who knows right? All these shows. It's a very very rich and robust production environment. We have in the city. Yeah. We should be very thankful for that. You know, despite all the distractions of this particular episode, Chris, and I are pushing for Chicago newscaster debt, so far, no luck. We'll see Tim. Thanks for joining us today. Tim Hanlin is founder CEO of the media consultancy firm, ver- tear group here in Chicago. And coming up hope is growing that the U S China trade war is easing WBZ news time, twelve fourteen.

And then tomorrow, we'll have more clouds. However, there is going to be some sun tomorrow high of thirty one today high of thirty two tomorrow right now twenty-seven O'Hare and midway thirty one degrees along Chicago's lakefront. And on Wall Street, the Dow industrials are up one hundred twenty nine points. Nasdaq up one hundred eight s and p five hundred up by about twenty four WBZ news time twelve twenty. Academy of words, the WB B M noon business hour continues net. Flicks is raising its prices by up to eighteen percent. The biggest increase since the company launched twelve years ago to talk about it. And we welcome Tim Hanlin founder and CEO of the ver- terror group here in Chicago, Tim, kind of give us a thumbnail sketch. What is net flicks doing here? Well, they're raising prices, and it's not a surprise just go. I mean, they have pricing power. There's no doubt that phenomenon. It's almost eighty eighty million subscribers in the United States alone. Obviously, a worldwide footprint, and it's only growing exponentially, depending on where you sorta spin the globe, and they have been furiously spending money debt for that matter, billions of dollars of that debt to secure their place amongst the firmament of TV and video choices that we have available to us, and you know, in terms of deficit spending. They are borrowing money at a feverish pace too. Yeah. Pack their lead or insulate themselves from a growing rank of competition. We've talked about some of them here on this show Disney, plus and ESPN's offerings and our whole host a whole slew of other ones, they are by a country mile leading the pack, and you know, they need to start. Balancing, I think their their revenue expectations, and they have pricing power. It's a Netflix is the default for everybody's a streaming choice, and to to suggest that that they have more room to grow in terms of pricing. There's no doubt that they've got plenty of room to do that. And they are starting to to exercise that power in the next couple of months by raising some price. So you talk about the power. They're basically banking on the fact that net flicks. In a very short time, you sort of become a utility that a lot of people don't want to even try to live without. And so does that give them a little more room to continue raising prices? Yeah. I do not doubt that they have more room to expand their their pricing power. And you know, the the cost benefit analysis from the average consumer right? I mean, you the argument is how much content. Do you get from net? Flicks. How often do use it? You know? I think many people essay unbundle their television choices, and they think about what they want. To put back into their bundle. They look at you know, the things that they're going to pay for Netflix is frankly, a become kind of to your point of utility, a default choice as as a must have starting point. And I think the question really is. You know, is it is nine dollars twelve dollars fifteen dollars eighteen dollars a month. We're at that price point pending on the planet. You want relative to the other offerings Amazon prime or HBO now, and those kinds of things I think Netflix has mindshare, and they also have a wide variety of content an original content. The question is can they afford to keep doing this in the years to come well net said that this knocks me out was best-performing of all of the fangs stocks last year, every time at Facebook and Amazon and apple they did a better job than you know, in in what they're carrying money. They're carrying home with than these other stocks. They'd kind of the sexy technology stocks. Yeah. And that's and that's stock price. Right. But the reality is that they are they are heavily indebted and one way to start to relieve some of that that is to raise prices. And as I said before don't think that they will not consider some type of advertising component to their business model at some point in the next couple of years as I believe Amazon is going to be doing with prime very shortly. So don't rule out the judicious arrival of some type of advertising at some point down the road immediately with net flicks. But it certainly on the on the on the road map in my estimation. Tim Hanlin, by the way, Wall Street loving it today, the stock's up almost nearly seven percent.

Still available are curious little journey each and every week into what used to be in professional sports, and we're going to sort of veer back into the to the John of arenas and stadia in our little journey this week with our our guest, Brent topel, and we're going to be talking about an interesting little anecdote a little asterisk if you will in the history of New York City metropolitan area sports, and we take you back to the the summer. And then later the fall of one thousand nine hundred seventy five and the place as you heard hinted at in our little little intro there from the documentary that aired on sports New York. I said why couple years back? We're going to be talking about Shea Stadium. Stadium in nineteen seventy five a place and a time when not one not two not three but four professional sports franchises in habit. That one building it was an interesting confluence of time and events and yes, the Mets and the jets obviously, the major tenets of Shea Stadium. We're joined by their crosstown rivals the Yankees and the giants during the course of nineteen seventy five and a. Perfect storm of of situation that brought all of those teams together playing in one place that being Shea Stadium not necessarily the most I dunno modern or well, regarded architecturally marvelous stadiums ever built, but in one thousand nine hundred seventy five and an interesting time in New York City history as well not necessarily for the best of reasons. The only game in town literally for all four of these professional franchises was to play at shea. Add we're going to get into that with Brett he was written a book, very interesting little story about this little forgotten the time in New York City sports history, and in a in a building that is certainly loved, but but not necessarily always revered by by people who inhabited it that being shea stay the book is called wins. Shea was home. The story of the nineteenth. Seventy five Mets Yankees giants and jets. And if you're wondering at home, this qualifies as fitting our little genre. Well, yes, sure. Shea Stadium at an exist anymore, and that is far as I'm concerned fits our little forgotten sports genre. So there I think you're going to joy this conversation. I learned a bunch of tidbits I grew up in the New York metropolitan area. I fancied myself as a football and baseball fan of the Mets not as much the jets, but certainly very aware of them and their stories and their headlines during my my childhood, but I will tell you. There are a bunch of things that I learned in this conversation. I thought I knew everything about New York sports, especially from my childhood. And I encourage you to listen to our conversation.

"That's all-share Shays stadium. The first time for pro sports teams had ever done it. This is one of those interesting scenarios here, we have Shay stadium. And we all remember she stadium kind of being dumped those last few years. But for a while Shea Stadium was not just the center of New York City sports where you can make the argument sports in this country who have four teams playing here. First time ever in US sports history where you have four teams sharing the stadium. And none of them are really that good to be honest with you the Mets were eighty two and seventy th the Yankees were kind of on the upswing at this point. But they only had eighty three wins. They didn't make the play off. The giants were unforgettable the jets weren't that. Good. I think the interesting thing that you one remember about this deal shape. Is that the jets and the Mets called Shea Stadium? Home the Yankees and the giants never belonged there. They were out of place to begin with. And all it did was enhance the sour taste in advance miles because their teams weren't that good anyway and on top of that plane where the jets and the Mets play. The Mets Yankees is the giants and the jets they wave one flag the white flag because they also horrible. They basically rolled over and folded for all of their adversaries that came into Shea Stadium. Maybe the worst decision ever made with all four teams in that stadium because it was amazing album. I think he'll which fan you work. You says a miserable year. Welcome to good seats. Dila vailable a curious little bud cast devoted to exploring. What used to be in professional sports?

Let's take a look at the deal with Tim Hanlin founder and CEO of the veteran group here in Chicago. Welcome back to the business. Our ten what does this mean? Well, names more change, the television and video landscape for sure a lot of this is predicated on discovery networks, which is a group of channels. Not only discovery, but things like Oprah Winfrey network. And a bunch of other channels TLC. And now actually discovery also owns the scripts networks as well, which is a HDTV and food network, etc. But it this this specifically refers to the discovery owned networks that are now going to be a streams and available on both who's live TV service as well as a a whole host of their shows available on who's on demand service as well. So it's a it's a pretty big sort of shot in the arm for Hulu as a fledgling, shall we say skinny bundle up TV channels linear TV channels, and it's certainly a a huge shot in the arm for their their libraries versus say, folks, like Amazon or Netflix is.

That's on the money. You're listening to the WB B M noon business hour, the NFL has reached an agreement with Amazon's twitch to stream the league's Thursday night games. Let's see what's behind the partnership with a Tim Hamlin is founder and CEO of the veteran group here in Chicago. Welcome back to the noon business hour, Tim first of all for those who don't know what is twitch. Hey, Kristie the app that at with twitches, basically, it's online gaming and communication. It is a hugely successful environment. For television, Centric and video Centric gaming. It's owned by Amazon, and it's arguably more popular as a device for watching consuming content and television is with males, especially younger males who just play constantly just watching television. What's the significance that the NFL has made an agreement with twitch? Yeah. The it's a recognition as long as well as some other things that they announced today, which is that the way people watch football games is is changing especially with younger audiences. And in essence, this twitch announcement is a recognition that young audiences young males in particular tend to be spending more time on line and video gaming than they do watching television dust, maybe a more apt opportunity and environment to watch or access or have available football games on that app versus having them. God forbid pushing a button and turning on the television. Yes. Entirely too much work. Talk about. Well, just how does the NFL? How does this impact how they make money off of these broadcasts? You have a variety of ways that the NFL makes money not just on commercials. How are they doing this dance? Yes. So this is also in in part in tandem with another and ask came out with today, which is basically they're moving Newark teams to be made available on mobile device cell phones etcetera for free that is authenticated. Meaning you don't have to have a subscription necessarily to horizon anymore, which was a previous limitation, and if I you know, I it's all sort of won't be incremental movement towards begrudging recognition, shall we say of the NFL and sports leagues generally that consumers are not necessarily going to subscribe to cable or satellite services to exclusively watch sports program. We need to be the net. The league's would say more cognizant of how our audiences truly want to watch an access these games. And we gotta start making movements towards that versus fighting against it go where they are for. Sure. Thanks, tim. We'll have you back again soon.

"Buy the landmark movie chain which has locations on Chicago's. North side and in Highland Park we're joined by Tim Hanlin founder and CEO, of, the group out of Chicago Tim welcome to the program and and what is Amazon? Not capable of. At this point Hi Marian question right it seems like. There's no physical point of presence that Amazon doesn't seem to be considering in an effort, to extend, its prowess in all things. Ecommerce and I think it's also very interesting in that you. Know a lot of people look at. It as a as a juggernaut in in all things electron commerce but the, reality is that. Consumers don't sort of look at things like movies or books or clothing or all. Kinds of food for that matter as simply an online or an offline purchase it's actually a combination. Of the two you got an accompanying, Amazon that is just so good at the digital format logistics of such, it's just a natural lever for them to get into judicious points, of presence physically and I think the movie theaters realm is. No different given their prowess, in television and the video would this be an, actual, if they if they did go through with the purchase of the landmark movie chain An actual brick and mortar place where they would put all of their media on or are they just looking. To purchase it and then get rid of it, like they've, done with some other companies yeah I look I think this is a a an integration of of. Channel I in that they spent so much money which by the way is also rumored, to be, circling around the landmark chain. Well I think it's a way to encourage folks to enjoy. Movies and maybe even television quote unquote. Fair in maybe more communal settings perhaps in a more refined environment that just, simply streaming it. On on wants television set and also to the landmark is known more for shall. We say artsy or more limited appeal movies for older audiences or more documentaries those kinds of things. Which is the sort of a big, mega blockbuster marvel comic book hero type of experience and maybe that's where Zahn, would, like to differentiate a little bit. Not only to help substantiate their current streaming offerings but also maybe give people another option as well very quickly Amazon being a movie studio, owning movie theater, does that he run into any possible legal hurdles because I mean, there was a court, case about this in the fifties that kind of got the studios, kicked out of the. Movie theater owning business Rob you paid attention in law school fantastic yes it's about a seventy year old Proclamation that essentially unbundled at the time Paramount Pictures from owning movie theaters and there has been recent discussion in the last couple. Of weeks of revisiting that case into in light of today's ever changing media landscape so this could. Be, an open door for an, Amazon or for that. Matter to get into, business yeah, the Marquette media law class continuing to. Pay off thank you very. Much Tim Hanlin founder and CEO group. Based.
