Even as a child; I would often hometape programmes instead of being dependent of the clock all the time. If I played with my friends in the afternoon after school, I home-taped programmes and watched during early evenings.

These days, I only watch live broadcastings like sports at the time they air. The rest, I stream a day later or so, using each channel's play service to skip the boring commercials. Then of course, there's the Youtube but that's more for watching video clips...

Not a fan of Rise but that's pretty clever.

Uh...

Now families and friends just have their nose stuck on their smartphones, watching streaming and videos while out in public or at home. I see it all the time. I'm often the only one in a restaurant without my phone out, even my spouse has his phone on him, reading through posts on Reddit or watching Twitch. I hate it.

That's caused by mobile telephones with Internet connection, not because of streaming replacing scheudled programming. But still, it's very sad.

I also never use my phone for internet. I only use interne on my monster computer whis ic 10000 times better and morethan any phone will ever be and Some of my friends does it and fortunately most of them dont do it. It is sad to see so many people in do it even when they are out with their friends and family. Mostly are people who are obessed with twitter or facebook or youtube and want to check all the time if they have some new messages or something. And now that we have this discussion i just finished watching a movie about it. it was about some teenagers who went to a camp that was about making kids forget about technology and do other activities.

How long before this failure of a streaming service merges with another? with peacock? the newly formed Discovery/Warner Media company? Clearly paramount + can't compete even AT&T decided to spin-off and basically sell warner media and this service is #9 in subs. Clearly TMNT deserve to be on another platform.
The great merging of streaming services is happening, we'll have only a few as hollywood scrambles to compete with big tech so most mergers will likely be allowed.

It goes beyond simply merging streaming services. Seems like ViacomCBS as a whole is on the block.

Think we’ll see a lot of m&a activity this year.
