Netflix has been promising it for a while now, and we’ve finally got the full picture of what its ad supported tier will cost — and what compromises you’ll have to endure for cheaper Netflix along the way. But how does that compare to other streaming services, some of whom are preparing their own ad-soaked plans as well?

And how is Netflix making password sharing even less attractive, while trying to retain “new” customers who may have been using the brother-in-law’s-account principle? We’re joined by TV Blackbox’s Steve Molk to talk through the ever-changing streaming media landscape!

Meanwhile, Apple held a product launch.

Well, actually, it didn’t.

There was no shiny Tim Cook smiling at us while he talked about how magical and revolutionary the new products were… but there were new products, with Apple rushing out its tenth generation iPad (with a new price point), M2-powered iPad Pro and updated Apple TV 4K during the week. Joining us to look beyond the shiny hype is Pickr’s Leigh Stark!
