This week we’re taking a closer look at Nintendo’s new OLED Switch. We didn’t get 4K. We didn’t get next-gen games. We didn’t even get an announced fix for joy-con drift.

So what did we get, and is it worth getting excited about? Seamus Byrne from Byteside joins us to discuss Nintendo’s strategy, and who the “new” Switch is ideal for.

It’s also sporting season, with the Olympics nearly upon us and so much fragmentation of sports rights across multiple streaming services.

Only one man can help us unravel the mysteries of sports streaming rights, and that one man is Steve Molk from TV BlackBox.

We all know it’s not going to be Alex, right?
