What Is The Streaming War All About?


Media companies have launched direct-to-consumer video services to compete with Netflix. All of them have been following category leader Netflix with global expansion and investing billions of dollars in content.

To be competitive, industry analysts expect an increase in mergers, such as Discovery and Time Warner or partnerships, such as the recently announced SkyShowtime between ComcastCMCSA and ViacomCBS.

Television’s “streaming wars”—a term that’s been used for nearly a decade to characterize competition in the music and entertainment industries—will reach a critical juncture in the next few months. Apple TV+ and Disney+ will debut. NBCUniversal’s Peacock and HBO Max will likely announce monthly price points. Netflix will continue to premiere new projects from creative heavyweights like Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes.

Is Nas The Next Billionaire?


We now know that Nas is a smart guy. We always knew he was gonna do, but traditional standards suggested maybe he isn’t the smartest guy, because he didn’t finish traditional school institutions. We also know about “they” schools. We have been able to ascertain that NAS is about to be the next billionaire!

It’s been made public for quite some time now that Nas is an investor in many tech companies and has a vast portfolio. That portfolio has resulted in numerous deals, which have lined the rapper’s pockets.

Walt Disney And 21st Century Fox Merges Together

Shareholders from Fox and Disney met up separately to vote on the merger involving both companies. Reports noted that 99% percent of the Disney shareholders voted to approve the acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

According to Variety, only one voter protested Disney purchasing Fox, saying the company was “overpaying for Fox.” In a blockbuster deal, Walt Disney Co. has finalized their plans to purchase a huge chunk of 21st Century Fox for a whopping $52.4 Billion deal.

The company will be purchasing the Murdoch family’s longtime corporation in stock as well as its film and television divisions and its international and cable networks. Their objective is to, reportedly, “meet competition from the technology companies in the entertainment business”, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Before the buyout is complete, 21st Century Fox intends to divide Fox Broadcasting Network, Fox Business Network, and its sports divisions FS1, FS2, and Big Ten Network into a brand-new media company that will be sold to various shareholders. The news became a shock to the entertainment industry as many did not expect that Rupert Murdoch or his sons would ever sell off such a huge amount of their decades old company.

The deal will reportedly be good news to Marvel fans as the deal will give Disney Twentieth Century Fox, Fox Searchlight Pictures, and Fox 2000 which are the longtime homes of the rights to X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four. The new acquisitions are also not limited Twentieth Century Fox Television, FX Productions, and Fox 21. This means that Disney will also have television shows such as The Simpsons and Modern Family.

Jay Z Talks Tidal, Jimmy Iovine, And Rewriting The Music Rulebook

Jay Z doesn’t give many interviews. In conversation, he often pauses mid-sentence, considers, rewinds, slices and reshapes his answer, choosing a more appropriate word or analogy that draws a finer point before revealing it to the interviewer. What’s commonly assumed is a mistrust of the press may just be that unlike his work in the studio or onstage, Jay Z doesn’t ultimately control the final result of an interview, and therefore treads more carefully while giving one.
