On this week’s episode of Media Play News On the podcast, hosts Charles Parkman and Charlie Schooley dissect several articles from the industry that have appeared in the past week, as well as offer a couple of quick reviews of new movies they watched while broadcasting. First, watch Charlie last food menu which is now streaming on HBO Max. It’s a wonderful satirical take on the tyranny surrounding high-end fine dining and well worth a look. Summing up Charles I Take out the knives And he shares his thoughts on the latest Netflix exclusive glass onion.

In one of the latest rockets of the broadcast wars, Warner Bros.’s chief financial officer has been quoted as saying: Discovery saying that streaming platforms’ prices are “…their prices are way too low,” which is worrisome considering that the merger of Discovery and WarnerMedia (with HBO) has resulted in many shows and movies being written off and removed from the streaming slate. He was one of the high-profile victims bat girl, a completed $90 million film that will now not be released. That, along with Netflix’s tendency to cancel shows after only one or two seasons, means that it wasn’t long from now that streaming subscribers were paying more for less content. Speaking of Netflix, Charlie and Charles have a mutual discussion about how Netflix is ​​setting itself up for failure by constantly canceling its original programming. The cancellation of “1899” last week (after one season) led to a lot of negative comments online, and more recently the cancellation of the animated comedy “Inside Job” has Charlie starting to turn more and more into the service. It seems that Netflix subscribers are conditioned to wait until an entire show is complete before they invest in it, which can set off a negative feedback loop of low initial viewing numbers, leading to more cancellations, which leads to lower viewing numbers.

The latest newsworthy content from the industry was CES and a metaverse-oriented show that took center stage during the convention. Both hosts own VR headsets and spend some time commenting on the proprietary VR technology that was announced at CES. Most things, like a headset with cartridges that allow the user to smell certain scents during use, look conspicuously dead on arrival while others, like a new headset from HTC to compete with the Meta Quest 2, are interesting. The hosts recommend buying a VR device regardless, because watching movies on a giant virtual screen is such an amazing experience.
