Warner Bros to release all 2021 films on HBO Max and in cinemas on same day

"In Hollywood Warner Media has announced that a basically their movie slate Is going to be on its streaming service, HBO Max the same day that it opens to the degree that any movie can open right now or in the next months ahead in theaters. This is shattering the window that had been a foundation of the movie business in which movies playing theaters and then they move on to another platform and the studio's milk of the movie all the way through, you know, with DVD sales and going to a cable channel or whatever, and make a lot of money. That's what it has been But now we're in the streaming world and Warner's. I will say absolutely stunned everybody, including the people who made the movies that are going to now be in this what they call day and date arrangement. They didn't even give them a heads up. They just announced it. I'm too heard about this the night before, and I was telling everybody I could reach this see what they'd heard and people didn't know. They had kept this idea completely under wraps and shocked the town and Maura importantly, perhaps Warner's did not tell the feet Your owners that they were doing this and this is it. This is basically the beginning of the end of the theater business as we know it because Warner's is the largest studio in terms of output. And now we've got 17 films, The entire 2021 slate going direct to HBO. Max the same day there in theaters. These are Sequels to the Matrix Sequels to the conjuring. This is all of the Warners movies Big small and in between. And you know there's really no going back from this. I don't think because even though the CEO of Warner Media Jason Kyle are is already saying this is just because of the pandemic in 2022, we could reevaluate. I just don't see how you do that. This is their policy. 18 T bought Warner media to explicitly to start a streaming service and take on Netflix. They don't care about the theatrical business. And now here, it shows and I think you're really going to see a catastrophic End of the movie business as we know it. Yeah, I mean, I was texting with one of their competitors the night before this announcement, the spin was the theater business will be reborn, and it will become this much better experience and I'm like rolling my eyes and yes, they didn't go to the theaters. They didn't go to anybody because they knew that with the blowback would be they just dropped it And I will note something like Godzilla versus Kong. Legendary paid 75% of the budget for that movie and basically can't control its destiny Got an offer from Netflix wanted to sell. The necklace was blocked by Warners because Warner's paid the other 25% and had the deal that give it the power to block that sale. And then they wake up in the morning saying, Guess what? We're putting it on our streaming service. There's no deal in place. This is not how we do business in Hollywood. You don't just say I'm totally twisting your arm, but I may have pulled it off. I think there was going to be incredible blowback from film makers, producers all of their partners, this kind of behavior. It's a digital thing bloodless. Move, But I think in Hollywood, you're gonna find a certain amount of blowback. Yeah, they're gonna have to pay out all the talent because there are expectations of box office bonuses and back in that are cooked into deals when you do this, and we saw this with Wonder Woman when it went to streaming. You got to pay out the filmmaker and you got to pay out Gal Gadot, the star and Maurin importantly, though, there is a feeling that the theatrical experience is being threatened here and you mentioned yes that the theaters could possibly reinvent himself. Cells. But let's say this impacts theaters 25 30%. That is a significant hit that the theaters will take on. A lot of them will go out of business. As we know the hits or what Dr the theater business, and even a 30% decrease would cause many theaters to go out of business. Perhaps the ones that remain would reinvent themselves Great. But talent here I mean, think of someone like John to the director of in the heights. He specifically took this movie Toe Warner Brothers when Netflix was offering a lot more money because of the experience he had with crazy Rich Asians, which also spurned Netflix for Warners and got a theatrical release and became a huge cultural phenomenon. Because of that theatrical release, he went Toe Warner's thinking he'd get that again. Now he's getting day and date. That's not what he signed up for. Yes, I mean, just let me be clear. I'm not the one who said the theater business will be reborn. That's the dream of executive in this business. And as I said, Yes, he is a perfect example. John Hsu of what does he think of this? And what will he think? Next time? He has a project that he wants to take somewhere. Thank you, man. Thank you. That's meant

Netflix Subscriber Growth Slows Amid Heightened Competition

"Of Netflix in the premarket right now down about 5% after the streaming service came out with earnings that missed estimates when it comes to a new subscribers and the forecast for future subscriber growth, a sign That the post pandemic future for the streaming company may be a little more cloudy than expected a foursome insights we welcome Eric Hagstrom, forecasting analyst at E Marketer. Good to talk with you this morning, Eric. What's your takeaway from Netflix Earnings should be thinking now that this company is in a better position when viewers have fewer options and her sort of shut in Well, let's let's look at the big picture. First off, they've added more subscribers so far in the first three quarters of 2020, then they did all of last year 2018 and those were their two best years ever in terms of music. Hi, Brad In total. Now, when you look at their major markets like the U. S, where there are already over half of all household in the U. S, described Netflix and more than half You already have access to it via password sharing things like that growth in subscribers. I always love And now this is something that Netflix was cautioning against in the first half of this year, where they saw really, really strong subscriber adds worldwide, so they missed their subscriber guidance by about 300,000 drivers but again In context they have just under 200 million subscribers. So it's not a massive change against expectation. So where do you see Opportunities for growth for the company. Now is it reached a saturation point when it comes to subscriber growth. Well, there certainly is a little bit more room for growth in the U. S. In terms of subscriber growth. There still is a good amount of room internationally for subscriber growth, and they are investing in new originals and knew what Contact to really help grow their base internationally. But in some of their more developed markets like the U. S. They are going to have to drive revenue growth by driving prices higher and they do have a significant amount of pricing power despite the competition, But again, subscriber growth could be a lot slower moving forward in the more developed market. As economy start to reopen that opens the possibility for Netflix to begin ramping up production. How crucial is that for the company in terms of getting back on a firmer footing for investors? Well, ramping up production is very important for Netflix. But Netflix does produce the show's on a pretty long time line. So, according to Netflix, at least their constant relief schedule won't be affected until sometime later next year on Dis stands in stark contrast, many of their competitors like Disney or Warner Media. You work in a much shorter production timeline and are already experiencing production delays and content release place as a result. Picnic corona virus and related shutdown. So any, you know, re certain production for Netflix really won't hit their service until sometime later next year, or even in 2022, so they're pretty set for the near future, At least any sort of research and production will be very good for, you know, kind of the mid term for them. Does the restart of production raise cash burn issues for the company. I know on their call last night, they said that they're in a good position and won't have to tap capital markets in our last minute here. Do you buy that? I do To certain extent, they borrowed a significant amount of money to fund future investments in media but again You know this is a company that has been profitable on in a bit of basis for awhile, but they have had negative cash flow, and that situation has been improving with time on Daz the growth subscribers as they drive prices higher. I would expect that that free cash flow issue becomes a lot better over time.

Why Is HBO Max Still Not on Roku or Amazon Fire TV?

"One of the major problems with HBO. Max's launch isn't necessarily the content although we talked about why that may also be a problem area. It's that most of the country can't get it because Warner has not been able to work out carriage agreements with Roku or Amazon their fire products like fire stick. So if YOU WATCH TV Either of those places which are many many millions of people, Roku is just really flexing its muscle ought recently, you cannot watch HBO Maximus. Things. And in fact, they were so petty that when they sunset at HBO, they just deleted it like, yeah you could get hbo on your fire stick or even other gone and I delete peacock is the same situation but the deals just have not been worked out and so. You yes. You could make the counterargument that. The fact that people can't see it is just temporarily delaying the fact that people might not want to see what they can see wants to get it but short term, this is a major issue. Yes. So explain this to me like essentially the only people who can get it are those who have access to what Apple TV. You can watch it on your browser correct lake you can. Write. But if you're using primarily a fire sticker, a Roku to watch watch all your APPs, you just can't get HBO Max. It's not available through stores. Yes and I think that the line Amazon is drawing his interesting I don't have any opinions not nearly informed enough as to its legality or it's Best. Practices goods or tape or whatever. But it seems like HBO wants a little at Button to just be there whereas Amazon wants to put it inside of its channels choice. So basically, you're it's silo further away You could argue that that's because they want people to watch their prime video content instead but anyway, all of this is is ongoing in and. Jason Cholera who is now in charge Warner media made this big centerpieces conversations with the press after the firings the other day like they have to get it in front of people peacock is facing the same situation to and it reminds me once again that for as. Industry focuses we are, and like I watch TV through an apple TV and you might as well. This idea that we were pushing for a while that may be apple just kind of wanted to be the portal they wanted to be the thing that you used to watch your TV. Maybe. That's still the case but a lot more people watch TV through other devices. Than, they watch it through Apple TV in that's having a major effect

Until what happened last fall when she had the unmitigated gall to sit next to George? W Bush had a cowboys football game in Dallas Texas at unforgivable. Well, then we had to go after her and we had got her with everything we got and so that's what they're doing right now and that's what they're doing now could she be mean? To I guess it's possible. It's Kinda surprising to me that if she is so mean and nasty and there's you know sexual harassment running rampant backstage at her show. Why didn't this come out a long time ago I haven't heard sexual harassment to now. Yeah. Something sexual in the she's just a mean person. She's just she has mean and the reason that were pointing out the cheese mean is because she hangs out with George W Bush well, she has to be mean if she'd hang out with your.

"Reports of a toxic work, culture and crew furious over poor communication during the Corona virus shut down. Despite the bad reports, there have not been any direct allegations made about Ellen herself. For more on all the bad news that the Ellen Show will speak to Matt Donnelly Sr. Film writer at Variety, so essentially human resources representative for both the production company that makes Ellen just called Tele Pictures and Morning brother. It's which obviously, areas the program or distributes it have both come together and sort of pursuit of information about sort of the day to day experience for Ellen's employees, a member, we have changed the sort of reference the stories said that their goal is to ultimately create a work environment where ever wanted sort of protected. And also can sort of advance and flourish and safety, So I think it's you know, a pretty responsible move on their part, But at this point, what we know is that they're reaching out to current and former employees to discuss their experiences, where presumably will conduct as sort of a larger report about what if anything, needs to change their Now, let's talk about these two reports just to kind of see what we're working with here. Back in April, Variety reported on the treatment of crew members during the Corona virus locked down so very loosely when things initially shut down, there was crew members who were saying that we weren't really being told what was going to be the fate of our ours or our pay. And then when Ellen's resumed some sort of filming at her home, they were kind of left out of the lurch on that, too. And I guess they hired Nonunion workers to do that work instead of them. Yeah, A lot of the sources we spoke with who are familiar with the production basically say that her long term crew people have been with her sums of the entire 17 year run of the show. Just expected a better level of treatment in terms of if and when they would come back, You know, up until the moment we published a report that Legacy crew was told to sort of expect dramatically reduced compensation, even though the show of going on filming at the normal rate, so I think a lot of people thought sort of betrayed in away by mixed messages, especially for someone who's banner. Heather staying for her jealous to be kind, and some say this is very difficult situations, obviously, in the confusion and chaos of the Corona virus pandemic that hidden in some ways, it makes sense. Maybe hire those non union workers because they have to do something, maybe things that the union might not have agreed for their workers, depending on safety, and all that, So sometimes those things make sense. But they were just saying that They weren't even afforded that choice or whatnot. Of course. Yeah, I think it was a lack of transparency that really got people. And yes, you know, Krone viruses cause such a dramatic ripple effect how we do or more specifically how we don't do production at the moment. So, yeah, the union might have to look the other way occasionally on getting some people back to work instead of, you know, sort of a massive sun town. But again, I think it was that sort of lack of care. That really got to some long term employees. Yeah, and the pay was also an issue. I know. They told them you're gonna get reduced hours or reduced Pay that way. But shortly after you guys posted your story, then it started coming out. Well, well, they're going to get paid their full amount. They're full pay all that stuff. I think that the production sort of realised, But the right thing to do was especially because if you follow the logic through if they were taking the same amount of episodes, that means that this is going into syndicated viewership and selling the same amount of advertising No one's really losing money on the end. It's just obviously out of an abundance of caution here to figure out how to actually make the show. But you know again, and I think Hollywood is a town that when your staff looks the way that l Inez and you've got no. Ah, working family or some people put it in the over 17 years, they expect you to cover them The way they've covered. You end up with a large part of the frustration and you know another thing. That was in that same report was that you know, no one had even stepped in and said, How are you? How are your family? How is your mental house? Which I think a lot of companies, you know, including the publisher Variety. Ah, lot of people didn't do that. You know that They were here for you. If you knew Greece sources that child care if you need meditation class you any number of things to sort of band together in a really unprecedented in highly stressful time. A lot of people thought that that wasn't done and we're quite surprised. The other part of this. In mid July, Buzzfeed published a report alleging a toxic work culture there. There was an employee who said that there was some racist behavior going around and a few other things that just really made working there on the show, not really tolerable. The budget reports have sort of a spectrum of accused behavior that is troubling from to start a sort of ID on that atmosphere of intimidation and fear. You know, there was some accounts of verbal abuse their accounts of sort of, you know, an idea that overall senior leadership it Alan felt, but no, it was a privilege to work there. And anyone who might complain about sort of the emotional atmosphere. Even working conditions could just move on because they couldn't find anyone else who had died of work, Carella It's a much more serious stuff like sensitive people of color on the head from jokes about two African American females being taken for each other because they have the same hairstyle to another employee being sort of shouted down an angry and resentful because she suggested that the entire staff received diversity and inclusion training. You know all this is supported by historians. That's quite serious, especially, I would say in the world we live in, which is a post me to world and if you even look at what's been happening in this country in the past two months There is it's incredibly justifiable demand for a lack of this toxicity and for transparent, clear on how we're all treating each other at work.

Ah, working family or some people put it in the over 17 years, they expect you to cover them The way they've covered. You end up with a large part of the frustration and you know another thing. That was in that same report was that you know, no one had even stepped in and said, How are you? How are your family? How is your mental house? Which I think a lot of companies, you know, including the publisher Variety. Ah, lot of people didn't do that. You know that They were here for you. If you knew Greece sources that child care if you need meditation class you any number of things to sort of band together in a really unprecedented in highly stressful time. A lot of people thought that that wasn't done and we're quite surprised. The other part of this. In mid July, Buzzfeed published a report alleging a toxic work culture there. There was an employee who said that there was some racist behavior going around and a few other things that just really made working there on the show, not really tolerable. The budget reports have sort of a spectrum of accused behavior that is troubling from to start a sort of ID on that atmosphere of intimidation and fear. You know, there was some accounts of verbal abuse their accounts of sort of, you know, an idea that overall senior leadership it Alan felt, but no, it was a privilege to work there. And anyone who might complain about sort of the emotional atmosphere. Even working conditions could just move on because they couldn't find anyone else who had died of work, Carella It's a much more serious stuff like sensitive people of color on the head from jokes about two African American females being taken for each other because they have the same hairstyle to another employee being sort of shouted down an angry and resentful because she suggested that the entire staff received diversity and inclusion training. You know all this is supported by historians. That's quite serious, especially, I would say in the world we live in, which is a post me to world and if you even look at what's been happening in this country in the past two months There is it's incredibly justifiable demand for a lack of this toxicity and for transparent, clear on how we're all treating each other at work. Not one thing that I found interesting is that there is no specific

"Version of this with some extras or whatever is comparable to the one hundred eight dollar a month average cable able bill is just nonsense to may i this is this is way better.

Max at eighteen dollars or twenty eighty dollars or whatever when it comes out don't subscribe to it. I mean this is. This is better than i think than it's ever been before. It's funny to me though because half of the people blur screaming out over bundling of cable type services half people screaming about too many options too many choices and there's too much good television out there being made like netflix net flicks isn't the only thing i need to have anymore. I need to now. Have you know to see everything my friends. We're talking about netflix hulu disney apple. I'm gonna have to have one hundred dollars worth of services a month. Is there a substantial difference in that. I mean i think social media's always mad about something. I think you're exactly right that we we've complained for years that we want all a car t._v. And now we're complaining that we have too many choices that this is all the court t._v. You know we've wanted if there are more choices coming. Certainly he no apple t._v. Plus is coming this fall.

Its new product. I four cable subscribers to get as a free add on and then i'm so you know i'm i'm sure eventually they're going to allow that to to be a subscription product for ten twelve. Whatever dollars a month these these are these are good options to have if if you're already not on cable <hes> you know there's something like a quarter of of u._s.

"Long dot or you're listening to KCRW this is morning edition I'm Kim masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of The Hollywood Reporter and Matt we've known that you know this industry is disrupted or Warner brothers and Warner media it's parent are sort of the ultimate case study right now of who he is calling on Warner brothers was the premier studio in this industry for so many years and being the chairman of Warner brothers was the biggest deal imaginable and they have now announced that M. Sarnoff who who comes from the BBC America and has really good experiences very well regarded but is completely almost completely unknown in Hollywood is going to be the chairman of Warner brothers and at the same time Warner media is announcing the launch of this HBO Max which is the streaming service that they have been building toward and if they are pulling programming from all over the place it to service this thing this is a huge priority so first of all your people are gonna have to look at that and say do I need this demo and will this H. B. O. Max idea work and at the same time within the industry there's a question of what she what does this mean for Warner brothers I mean if Warner brothers now going to be subservient to the streaming service and does being chairman of Warner brothers really have any kind of clout and prestige or or are you just going to be taking orders effectively from Bob Greenblatt who runs the streaming service as well as these other cable channels and HBO he reports to John Stanky the head of Warner media as does Ansari off but it's not so clear what it all means in terms of who has power this really does represent a sign of the times and entertainment because when eighteen he bought the Time Warner assets it was very clear that the crown jewel was not Warner brothers it was HBO because they could leverage HBO to create a global streaming service that will hopefully in their words complete with Netflix and that's what every conglomerate is try and to do right now they're trying to leverage with their assets are create new stuff and go head to head with Netflix so you're seeing Warner media pull back a lot of the content that was out there most notably friends which is been streaming on Netflix is now going to switch over to this new HBO Max they're gonna start doing with a bunch of other shows on the CW on Turner on the Turner networks like TNT and TBS some CNN contact this is all going to be funneled into this H. B. O. Max streaming service which will be patched as an add on to H. B. O. or as its own thing a little bit more expensive than the traditional HBO cost currently and that's where we're at right now because Comcast is doing the same thing with the NBC universal shows like the office pulling it away from Netflix doing their own thing Disney is launching their own thing we're going to get into a very stratified ecosystem where the streaming services are tops and the contents suppliers are going to be the studios that they own and hopefully others they think I mean worse is made a fortune selling TV shows the with TV division is been a lead you know Big Bang theory two and a half men all of the shows and different networks very profitably and enjoying all of that reaping all of the rewards that followed and they just sold a huge project to Netflix Sandman so they're still looking to get that cash coming in the door obviously I don't I don't even know how you sorted out and I think more importantly people in the industry don't how you sort it out if I'm making a TV show and Warner brothers making that show what goes to the HBO MAX what goes somewhere else what do I sell to CBS or ABC or or Hulu or whatever so I think it's it's almost like this dizzying situation within the industry of figuring out who is going to emerge victorious and how these things are going to be sort yeah that's a that's a potential big change for Warner brothers which as you mentioned it has been this you know people say they're the arms dealer Hollywood in the sense that they have sold everybody but if you look at what Disney is doing this he is very purposefully holding back a lot of their stuff and they are trying to create an ecosystem around this new Disney plus streaming service that will be the one stop shop for Disney now Disney has a very strong consumer brand and people know Disney and they want Disney oriented content it's not quite the same for Warner brothers they don't have that brand name they just you you wouldn't the average person on the street wouldn't even know that one brothers produced two and a half men yeah it's probably the biggest revenue generator that the company has so I I just I think that it was very interesting to see how Warner's approaches this ecosystem and who they sell to and who they don't think from the consumer standpoint of course the question is how much does this cost they said it will be more than just a H. B. O. subscription streaming subscription of fifteen a month fifteen dollars a month you know the streaming services are gonna add up if you if you want this that or the other if you want the office if you want friends if you want the stranger things those are three different subscriptions thank you Matt thank you that's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter he joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business I'm Kim masters and this is the Hollywood break down and you are listening to morning edition here on KCRW guess.

"Heavy duty so Warner Media Group Aka Turner Sports and if if you don't know what Turner Sports is that's T._N._t.. And T._B._S. will present all wrestling at their up runs to advertisers next month now Warner Media Slash Turner Upfront currently scheduled for May fifteenth and this is how networks announced their content lineup lineup for the fall season to advertisers so reading into this a little bit more the details that have been reported. Now these details at I'm about to state are more rumor than fact which what I just reported is more fact act and rumor but the difference we don't fact check that is true but the rumor is is going to be a two year deal. It's going to be <hes> starting in October and all eat wrestling. It has already trademarked Tuesday night. Oh Man I just missed it. I ahead it there in the night when away from me Tuesday night mayhem or something like that so they're looking to go on Tuesday nights which in in October coincides with smackdown going to Friday nights on Big Fox so that's an interesting move because we're conditioned as of right now is a wrestling fan to watch Monday night raw and then Tuesday night smackdown. Will you take away Tuesday night smackdown replace place with all the wrestling. There's my Tuesday. I'm still watching. Wrestling to condition is to go on Friday night and watch smackdown. We'll see if I knew that speaking for myself but that's a great interesting move. I think by all league wrestling what's your thoughts. I you think exactly that I think man here we go again. We've got Turner lined up for another swing at it right there like I can still knock him out. There are still laying in the wings here. This'll be interesting. I'm really really excited. This plays out of the Tuesday night as the great move especially if that's avoid resting right because I mean Wednesdays they're also as far as television's concerned but next he's got enough of a following that I think he'd want to avoid Wednesday if he could you know in Wednesday's a little bit different because you don't necessarily have to watch because it's is on the network which means I can watch it. You know when you do live television which smackdown enroll are. It feels like more of a must see because you don't know what will happen now. That's been debatable the last couple years if if that you know edginess on your edge the seat kind of viewing has been there as it used to be in the Monday night wars but we'll see but with smack dirk suny with N._F._C.. I've always felt like well. I could just watch that when it's convenient more with smackdown and raw because you never know who's GonNa debut. WHO's GonNa Win X._Y._Z.? I do never watch an X._T.. Like live right because we'll we'll typically recording because it's on a Wednesday night so we're usually doing this. That's why this is the best podcast Oh casts recorded on a Wednesday of course so yeah. We'll see if in October things start to really ramp up because as been reported Fox's really they've invested a billion dollars into smackdown so they're not just wanting that just to be a placeholder so they've asked as your content you know there's been rumors of Daniel cormet current U._f._C. heavyweight champion being a commentator said Connor McGregor being Conor McGregor with Fox giving a billion dollars. There's also been rumors that in the superstar shakeup you might see a Ronda Rousey go to smack down and then that's when the stroman maybe yes so and that's going into next week and we'll get into our ron. smackdown thoughts a little bit later as well but all we wrestling now's the time to kind of cash in on all this buzz now right now April is W._b.. Bright like they rule abors next all that stuff so is smart Kinda Lay Ehlo and just let them have this fun but can you mega the young bucks the Lucho brose Jericho cody. You know that's a lot of money and it's interesting to see like okay. That's a lot of money put into it now. Let's return on investment our ally in the business world as it's called and it's got to be here eligible for network television apparently so housing workout to that'll be interesting to see <hes> and another interesting interesting point because you brought up you know Turner's trying to get back into the game of pro wrestling which is true however this isn't being footed by the Ted Turner hooked up the world. This is the con- family who owns the Jacksonville Jaguars and <hes> English premier soccer team so it'll be interesting with the resources Turner has an history that Turner has plus the money because if you know <hes> the con- family <hes> twice as rich as the McMahon Dan family however many different enterprises whereas McMahon is kind of you know what I mean joyal but now also McMahon is dip in his toes into the N._F._l.. Or Excuse me in small AF folded to how is he got out X._F._l.. Has the full season so crazy yeah I. I'm really interested to see where it goes in. Yes this last Turner was funding the company this time they're just they're just the distribution Russian television but that's still a lot of financial backing and there's still involvement involved with that. They still have a lot of say in what goes down right yeah so it'll be interesting. I'm I'm ready to see where this goes. I'm ready for that. <hes> alternative really yeah. I definitely AM I. You know we've been talking for awhile of how you know. Please someone else you know we're tired of inconsistencies the last second decision making just as raw was after mania kind of felt like in the main event so hopefully all wrestling can kind of cash in on what me and you as debt as that hardcore fan but not necessarily into other organizations if they can grab thus I think we are the key demographic all eat wrestling. I think they have the pro wrestling tease. I have fifteen shirts. Three of them are Kenya Omega. I think they got all those guys angles right like they got that Vietnamese. I think they need to go after more so than the general public our viewers like me and you were we watch raw. We walked smackdown. We watched the pay-per-view but being completely transparent. I don't think we've ever ordered a ring of honor honor pay per view. I don't think we're necessarily keeping up with who the <hes> you know. Never openly on your thing that I can easily like. I've got a D._V._R.. Playstation Vue on something like that and it's easy easy and I can follow along. I might yeah and so with T._N._T.. And T._B._S. which is available on most all types of cable providers whether it's basic you know the the traditional cable I have sling which is that kind of alternative Internet streaming cable provider <hes> Similar T._N._T.. And T._B._S.. You have playstation vue. I believe that's available and playstation Vue so that's a big easy convenient for us. I think gin all wrestling they I need to go after us more so than the person who only watches Wrestlemainia 'cause brock listeners big and bad salary casino yeah but what's got another new store. You WanNa share good another news story. Apparently razzies broke her hand at Wrestlemainia so now there's been some rumors that she was going to be taking some time off after mania anyway from before so I maybe this a work. I mean who knows right now. What do you think well I? I thought it was interesting. That becky lynch made a comment about the story where she said. Isn't it funny that the girl the bad is woman on the planet broker hand on the face that she said was too fragile to get through a match or something like that. I'm paraphrasing <hes> so with becky legitimate comment like that. It seems like if they're smoke. There's fire <hes> everything that was reported peaking behind the curtain said that Ronda Rousey was gonna be on raw. Obviously if you watch the episode she was not <hes> so I think there's a little bit of truth to it. I mean you know I think it's hard when you're used to throw in real punches and then you're adrenaline going and then you try to throw a fake punch and you can probably roll a wrist or in this case break a hand because you're you're doing something not natural. You're trying to hurt someone but not hurt someone but make it look like it hurts someone right and so that's going to be difficult to to perform if you're not used to it and so you can hurt yourself by doing those kind of actions and it looks like in this case Ronda Rousey burke that Hain see you again. I like it like we don't need rowzee coming back for a rematch and we don't need <hes> you know like Becky Lynch can go on now and and take on other competitive. This is a perfect time for those times off that we've talked about that. Restaurants can get you don't have to have an off season but there's no reason raising can't go away for a couple of months now. Rest get better think of a good story line options come back with some ideas you know creative will be thinking also and let's see your I mean what we can do like be. It's two thousand nineteen ear the storyline so you know what I mean like. Let's do this like let her go like she does not need to be on these shows yet like she is going to be the next night. We like well. I would be great. Nobody gives a fuck yet. No one's clamoring for the night after after Wrestlemainia the rematch that we already just solved so I agree with you. Let's just as you already gave us. The match in many different ways beforehand it'll be interesting though to see how that reset happens for Rhonda Rows if she does take that extended period of time Mauve because it kind of felt like starting to wrestlemanias ago it was hit the ground running round around around around around around Rhonda.

"Here. Let's let's go over some of them and part of this too. Is that the lawyer has released a video showing the truth behind the Covington controversy and why they're so upset about it. All and why they should rightfully be upset for anyone that has refused to admit that there are times that the media goes beyond getting it wrong. Sometimes they'll go even further than that where their editorial bias in their decisions on what to cover what not to cover and sometimes they'll go even further than that. Which I thought we saw in the Covington highschool case where they didn't even care about what the. Facts were they cared about. What the internet was gossiping about in. They started to report it as facts to smear high school children at a March for life rally. Why because they wore red hats. It's disgusting. The way they treated those kids. And why are we so upset about it? Well. I think that there hasn't really been much Justice for these high school students. I don't think that they did an adequate job of. You know, it's one thing to backtrack. But it's another thing to set the record straight in apologize. Mostly they backtracked. Only some of the personalities apologized in admitted they were wrong in to this day. There are still commentators out there that are smearing these kids. They are not celebrities. They are not people in public life. They're not someone that you would normally think have certain protections when it comes to this extreme level of criticism in smears against them. So this I think is the beauty behind this lawsuit, or at least the threat of lawsuit right now. And I am not only do I think they have a strong case. I think they're gonna what bonds some entities here. Some news, quote, unquote entities. And we're gonna talk to Brad young from harassed Al Fisher in young in about ten fifteen minutes about that too. I wanted to get his take as a lawyer if he thinks these guys have a case, okay? So Nick, San manslaughter released a video showing the truth behind the comington controversy. There's a lot of different people that are linking to this last. I checked it was close to maybe a quarter of a million views or half a million views somewhere in there. But it's definitely on his way up. It's being shown a lot of different news agencies Lincoln to it right now. So the teenagers name and face a recognizable in millions of households across the country after the mainstream media made him the target of an online Lynch mob for legibly, mocking native American may on activists in Washington DC last month. This is the way it was written on the blaze to really good right up about this. So San man's team of lawyers took the first step sending fifty four letters to media organizations. Journalists Hollywood celebrities Catholic organizations and saying that they are culpable in defaming Sanmen in their contribution to the media's initial narrative Mary Jews on the list. Okay. So the legal counsel representing Nichols family have said they will seek Justice for the harm allegedly done to the team. Okay. Here's here's everyone that I could see on the list, and so far there's a list of fifty four not gonna read every single one of them. But you kind of get an idea of the Washington Post New York Times CNN NPR NPR. TMZ the diocese of Covington. Diocese of Lexington. Archdiocese a Louisville diocese of Baltimore seven CNN personalities, including SE Cup who I believe actually apologized, but maybe I'm wrong. Eight people from the Washington Post four people from the New York Times five from NBC and MSNBC, including savannah Guthrie who did that interview with nNcholas Sandman in was still accusing him through her line of questioning the even after all the video surfaced. So that was pretty joy Reid on their Chuck Todd's on there to let's see HBO Bill. Maher Warner media G Q the hill, the Atlantic. Elizabeth warren. Omar, which is her last name. She said some pretty terrible, and she's actually pointed out inside of this video that the Covington teens lawyer put out Kathy Griffin, Melissa Milano in Jim Carey altogether, fifty four and part of this problem is that after this online video surfaced in these news agencies thought to themselves. You know, what we're more of a bunch of gossipers than we are news. So what we're gonna do is. We're just going to take this video. We're going to go beyond speculation. We're just gonna say that these kids were doing things they actually we have no proof of them doing. They were yelling. They were abusive. They were aggressive. They were slurring they were fighting. They were intimidating. They were about to start their own. I listened to some of the things that Nathan Phillips. He's the native American protester that approach these teens on the footsteps at the Lincoln Memorial. Listen to the some of the things he said. And this is where the news agencies were getting their information. They go directly to him and activists who is out there to publicize himself and his message as opposed to actually doing the bare minimum amount of research in using a little bit of their journalistic integrity to actually figure out what happened there. So instead, they go to one side and activist get his side and broadcast it as if it's the truth. Here's a couple of things that Nathan Phillips said before they actually saw anything that would back up and evens claims they didn't question him. They just wanted to take his word is truth. Now, keep in mind too. How many of these things that he brings up inside of the media? How many of these things have been not only debunked? But completely completely been exposed as lies. Here's puerta. This. There is a group of over two hundred money point. Now, these are interviews with some of these large news agencies. You know, the C N N's and the MSNBC's in them. They were quick to get him in Bookham for interviews. They wanted to hear what he had to say. There is a group of over two hundred young angry white men, and they were facing down just for black individuals. And it was coming to a point where a snap of a finger could have caused them kids to descend on does for individuals. So now, they're going back to the video now keep in mind, two hundred eighty degree white boys that are ready to descend on these four black individuals. There talk. Talking about the the Hebrew nationals. I can't remember what they were called. The is Hebrew Israeli national nights or something the organizations called. The black. Hebrew, israelites. That's right now, I was talking about the hot dog. I got the. Got the hotdog mixed up. So you have the teams that are waiting to get picked up on the bus their sixteen year olds getting picked up because they were there for the March for life, and the group of the black Hebrew Israelites were yelling and screaming. Some of the pretty pretty disgusting vile things at these teenagers, and in no way wants the video was released that you can see these teens at all acting aggressive towards these four individuals. That were yelling some pretty hateful things. What you're about to hear are the, and of course, we can't air everything that that group of four were yelling and screaming. But here's part of which shows the kids were just standing there while they were getting yelled at by these four going on here. Now, this is a pretty circle, please. Oh, please. You mean? When you hear the high school kids yelling, why are you being mean the times they're yelling nets racist? And some of the other things that that group were yelling were and I'm gonna paraphrase because I can't ear it on this radio station is so disgraceful. But you know, there there is some African Americans incited the teens group the ones that were there for the March for life. They were yelling that they're going to harvest your organs theory, yelling things like your future school shooters. They were using, you know, some pretty poor language that I couldn't repeat as well. When you know sexually charged language, homophobic language, and they were yelling all of these things. They were using hate slurs at these teens in by all accounts, we've watched I mean, we we have almost think we have everything on video from the start of the confrontation to the end when they were walking on the bus because everyone had their cell phones out at no time. Was there any indicate? That any of those teenagers were at all going to try to number one physically approach these four or to even tried to intimidate these four that were there yelling things at them. So let's continue what activists Nathan Phillips the native American activists as he continues to tell all of these lies of the accounts of what happened and I went in front of that mob mob being the teenage boys appeared to be their prey on in the pray be in the four that were yelling at them all that hate.

"Yeah. I think you have to look at it in the larger context of the Time Warner acquisition, and what kind of been going on with that company for the last few months before film struck with shutdown Warner media also shut down another service that they owned called drama fever that was incredibly popular for accessing all the popular Korean dramas and other international content. That was shut down a week or so later films struck with shutdown Warner media has also shut down its digital video arm was called super deluxe. They were making like experimental Facebook interactive shows, and and short-form YouTube series, and that type of thing all three of those businesses were shut down in quick succession. And I think you're right that a lot of studies that have have looked at streaming services over the last two years have have found that most people are gonna subscri-. About three or four services. You're going to have your net. Netflix then maybe your Amazon or your Hulu, and then you've got room for one or two others. And Warner media has said that they're going to launch a streaming service in the twenty nineteen and my expectation, although they're not saying yet, what kind of content will be honest service. My expectation is that we will see some of the film struck catalog drama Tibor content potentially pop up in in that service in a bundled. Offering that is a better price point for consumers, and that makes more sense for for Warner media. It makes sense that the this is like you said people aren't going to aren't gonna subscribe for more than maybe four services and a little thing like film struck. I don't think it's going to go with. I think film struck will return in some form that catalog probably from somewhere else inside Warner media, but far too beloved to go entirely, I think and that criterion collection that they had access to is incredibly important to film scholars and people who love movies. So I'm sure that people will be able to continue to get that content in some way, venture -ly just won't be through film struck. I was talking to somebody about how there's a lot of older content that used to sort of fluff up the catalog at Netflix, Amazon that doesn't have a lot of value because everybody is paying for new content. And that's that's another piece not just old movies, but old TV shows where. I feel like in the end they will find a home because there is a niche there that will be served by having them. But who knows I feel like we have to get there. And right now, we're in the race of new content. And and that that catalog is very important. I mean, Netflix, obviously doesn't share a lot about viewership. But you've got to believe that friends is one of the hopless straightened shows on Netflix. I mean, just anecdotally that number of people who either rewatch the whole series the United that in the last year or young people who discover my daughter is seventeen and she watched all of the friends episodes. So so that is incredibly valuable content to a Netflix or a Hulu or Amazon. What's interesting is that friends is Warner Brothers. So most likely streaming service Warner media launchers and the next year will have friends. So I think part of what we're seeing with the the content the original content arms race is that Netflix sauve the writing on the wall a few years ago that. Eventually they would lose access to the these catalogs Disney's already pulled its catalogue..

It is one of the most interesting stories in media and technology right now, it's we'll keep an eye on another angle here that I wanted to bring up there were a couple of shutdowns in the digital media space. And I'm curious what people think that might mean for the future of digital media film. Struck got shut down. Is Warner media streaming service for classic movies. It was shut down by the new owners AT and T defy media. And now we read about this in the Hollywood reporter had seventy five million YouTube subscribers across a bunch of different brands and previously owned screen junkies, which they sold earlier this year that also they basically have shut down the company are selling off those those existing YouTube brands of these are very diff. Stories in many ways, but they to something that I think is interesting. It's how this landscape is evolving film struck. It seems like this might be AT and T saying we know that people aren't going to subscribe to forty different niche services, and we wanna come up with a new bigger service that we wanna put all of our content into and I feel like consolidation of all of these different services thing that's going to happen because nobody we're not going to have twenty different eight dollar a month services.
