Episode 72: Exploring Apple’s Formula One Bid; Candle Media’s Poor Revenue Forecast; Taylor Swift’s Media Domination

Podcast episode 72 is live. This week we detail the language in the new terms announced by the WGA in their deal with the studios (AMPTA) that have come as a result of the writers strike. The new deal provides no real transparency into viewership numbers outside of total hours streamed and only for self-produced high budget streaming programs. We also discuss Amazon’s news that starting in early 2024 Prime Video shows and movies will include limited advertisements. Finally, we provide some details on the recent ruling from a German court that Netflix is infringing on Broadcom’s video patent related to HEVC.
