Streaming special: CBS Aussie plans, Shudder launches, Quibi goes free and more: Vertical Hold ep 291
CBS has big plans for Australia, so why is it dragging its heels on bringing us the new Star Trek? Why are Aussies getting Quibi for free? Why is Netflix showing a broadway play nobody’s seen yet? Will Shudder give the streaming world a scare? What’s happening to the new Bill & Ted movie down under (and can we borrow their time machine?) All this and more in our streaming state of play special with special guest TV_Blackbox viewer advocate Steve Molk!
Streaming is a huge part of the way most of us get our entertainment, and especially in a pandemic age, and we’re seeing some big news about streaming services emerge. So this week we’ve roped in Steve Molk from TV BlackBox to talk us through everything from stage musicals on streaming services to horror specific niches to the overall cost of streaming and whether that drives piracy and plenty more besides!
