Streaming Frustrations 2022 with Todd Erwin


Reconnection (5m or less):

  • Amazon Prime day tonight at 12 midnight.  Does Todd think the $120 Apple TV is a good deal or the best deal of all time? Pretty Awesome! - Best Buy is price matching that, 64Gb is $140, Roku Ultra $80, StreamStick 4K $30 (both are Roku sales, not Prime Day)
  • The adventures of Terrific Man! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuwa8vtOgB44qnnKovNDvysB_FmKQH0AG

Streaming Frustrations 2022 (Target time about  1h):

  • Playstation removing content from paid customers lockers?!?!
  • Lionsgate supports iTunes with unbearable weight.  One off from a specific licensee or part of a long term shift?
  • Why hasn’t movies anywhere expanded?
  • Doctor stranger’s picture quality thread.  
  • Vudu/FandangoNow library merger
  • Paramount+ (and HBO Max) HDR issue on Roku (both are now resolved)
  • Disney+ and Netflix to add new lower cost ad-supported tiers
  • Sony's inconsistency on HDR and Atmos across digital retailers
  • Sony's content deal with both Netflix and Disney+/Hulu
  • Content reverting back to studio-owned streaming after this year
  • Best Streaming devices
