More than a decade ago, it was very much like this with services like Netflix. They didn't have much of a deep catalog which they owned outright. Hence they had to license from the movie companies which owned the actual content.

In the case of HBO licensing Star Trek movies, that seems to be a headscratcher. Does Warner not have enough of their own content to attract enough subscribers?


HBO always had non Warner titles long before streaming. Peacock has non Universal titles. I'm not sure if Paramount Plus has other studio titles or not.

That TV Guide excerpt brings me right back to my youth devouring the magazine each and every week and getting a special thrill when one of my favorite shows or specials received the Close-Up treatment.

it was your watching guide for the week, because you missed it....you missed it!!! No VCRs No DVRs No way to turn back the hands of time...so the TV guide was your timetable to the shows you followed back then.

Absolutely, and I was lucky enough to live in a two TV household, so if my dad (who controlled completely the primetime selections of the TV in our family room until he went to bed) would not bow to my chosen show, I could always bound back to their bedroom and watch on the TV there (which I did about 60% of the time).

I feel your pain, LOL!!! My first aquasition as a kid, with my first job as a box boy, was my own RCA Black and White TV (rabbit ears included). My father too was the TV Czar, with a total control over the remote...We didn't have a color tv in the house, until he discovered that the Football and Baseball games were broadcast in color, and got a Zenith 19" wonderbox. The funny thing was I would be watching a classic film on the Color TV. My Dad would come in and be totally confused as to why I would be watching a B&W movie on a color TV, LOL!!!

Since television was such a big part of our family together time, our parents got a color TV back in the spring of 1966, so we were ready for the big color TV explosion that fall. Our budget apparently didn't have money for a big name brand color TV, so we ended up with a 19" Sears model. It was a big, cube-shaped thing with a metal cabinet (with a wood-grain finish!). It had no remote control - (that was my job) - and we all mostly agreed on the shows that we would watch. If memory serves, the first night home was a Tuesday, so we got to watch RED SKELTON in color.

So when THE INVADERS premiered the following January, we were all ready to watch the series in color.

The whole "In Color" hype was tantamount to the amazed reactions, vieiws and comments on 4K!! Quinn Martin totally capitalised on it!! As did all the networks at the time ABC, NBC and CBS!!!

Does anyone remember what production logo was used at the end of The Invaders during it's network run? CBS owns it now, but it wasn't a "Paramount" show in 1966-67, right?
