Streamers axe shows, gambling ads under fire: Vertical Hold Ep 435

Special Guest TV Blackbox viewer advocate Steve Molk!
Streaming services always have everything all the time forever, right?
Well… no. There’s been a recent rash of shows being quickly cancelled and pulled, or in some cases pulled before they ever made their streaming debut, but why?
Sticking with our viewing choices, many of us wouldn’t choose to watch gambling advertising, but it’s absolutely rife across TV and online sports streaming, and suggestions of regulation are being met with howls of protest, especially from the free-to-air TV industry in Australia. Because… of course they are, there’s money to be made.
