Streaming Frustrations 2022 with Todd Erwin

Reconnection (5m or less):
  • Amazon Prime day tonight at 12 midnight. Does Todd think the $120 Apple TV is a good deal or the best deal of all time? Pretty Awesome! - Best Buy is price matching that, 64Gb is $140, Roku Ultra $80, StreamStick 4K $30 (both are Roku sales, not Prime Day)
  • The adventures of Terrific Man!

Streaming Frustrations 2022 (Target time about 1h):
  • Playstation removing content from paid customers lockers?!?!
  • Lionsgate supports iTunes with unbearable weight. One off from a specific licensee or part of a long term shift?
  • Why hasn’t movies anywhere expanded?
  • Doctor stranger’s picture quality thread.
  • Vudu/FandangoNow library merger
  • Paramount+ (and HBO Max) HDR issue on Roku (both are now resolved)
  • Disney+ and Netflix to add new lower cost ad-supported tiers
  • Sony's inconsistency on HDR and Atmos across digital retailers
  • Sony's content deal with both Netflix and Disney+/Hulu
  • Content reverting back to studio-owned streaming after this year
  • Best Streaming devices


Quick Good Bad and Ugly:
Sam - RRR

FWIW, last week I unstickied the original thread and stickied the newer thread on the topic. Seemed overdue to promote the shift in discussion. :)

We should do a Streaming Frustrations Music Services Edition episode....

I just gave Amazon Music Unlimited HD another try, and it STILL can't do Dolby Atmos on their own FireStick devices!!
