  1. To answer the streaming question, all NBC and CBS broadcasts will be simulcast on their respective streamers: No word on any Fox streaming simulcast, which I guess makes sense because they don’t really have a paid service. Wonder if that’ll change soon
  2. Nexstar's New Set Express™ has arrived in Savannah. Expect the duratran to be replaced with the window look, as usual. https://www.instagram.com/p/ChSNW8auyY9/?igshid=YTgzYjQ4ZTY%3D
  3. Took them long enough to make a flat package. Maybe there is hope for Gray’s graphics hub
  4. Peacock Premium and Paramount+ combined are $10 a month ($8.75 with Paramount’s student discount). In fact, all five services you mentioned in your post come out to around $45, still far less than the average cable subscription of over $100. People tend to be mindful of their money and choose to not overspend on entertainment. So for many, including myself, that amount is even lower. The point is moving a game online isn’t a “banishment,” it’s putting it where an increasing number of viewers are. Not to mention the broadcasters future proofing themselves as cable continues to decrease, and keeping the entire subscription fee instead of sharing with the cable companies. Plus getting free marketing for the rest of the shows on the services. Come for the football, stay for The Office or the iCarly revival or something.
  5. In the age of cell phones and instant gratification, I didn’t know anybody who watched soap operas on TV at my university. In fact, many off-campus apartments are dropping cable TV service in favor of faster internet. And unfortunately, DOOL can’t compete with TikTok and Netflix etc.
  6. “Banished” is an interesting word, implying that putting a game on streaming is negative. On college game days last year, people at my university would clamor to find someone whose parents pay for cable, just so they can use their credentials to stream it. By putting it on a more affordable service, it’ll be accessible to a wider audience who can’t afford a $60 monthly bill. And in turn, gives the broadcasters some extra revenue
  7. Fair point, but I think MSNBC has spent the past decade and a half communicating that they’re a political network. I mean, they literally called themselves “the place for politics,” so I don’t know if an extra network newscast is the thing that signals that. Plus, I was mostly confused about what an earlier comment said, about signaling to Chris Jansing that they don’t care about her show
  8. I seriously don’t understand what message this is supposedly sending to the people at their cable channel. Can’t the network and MSNBC coexist? Also, wouldn’t this mean they were “sending a message” when they expanded Today years ago?
  9. According to TVNewser’s write up, Daily will be simulcasting on News Now, and stations apparently have the option of replacing it with local newscasts. I wonder how many would actually do so And FWIW, the press release says a “large percentage” of viewers already watch DOOL online, so this probably wasn’t a short sighted decision
  10. *she I mean they also have two other national news channels, News Now and LX (which the O&Os run). Just because one of them gets an hour on the network doesn’t mean they don’t care about their other properties. MSNBC caters to a different audience than the network anyway, so I don’t see much of a conflict
  11. According to the article, it'll be anchored by some of NBC News Now's anchors, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen, and Morgan Radford (plus Kate Snow), so they're probably trying to align it with that, instead of Today. I believe the 1pm hour of News Now is a repeat of the live 12pm hour anyway, so I wonder if they'll simulcast Daily.
  12. Actually YouTube TV is their first pay TV provider. Verizon would be their first cable provider. Considering FOX Weather is streaming first, I don't think they'll lock it down anytime soon, or else they'll lose most of their user base. Also, look at Newsmax. Their stream is completely free despite being on many cable providers.
  13. Sounds like they're trying to replicate Sinclair's News Central. Hmm... maybe News Central was two decades ahead of its time, now that a major network is copying them
  14. Gray's WBKO in Bowling Green, KY airs Lee and Hayley on their Fox 13.2 subchannel at 11am.
  15. Not a fan of the graphics. The sound effect for the “forecast first” is annoying, the clutter underneath the lower thirds is unnecessary, and a lot of elements give me $34 VideoHive vibes. I’m mostly fine with the other Nexstar packages, but this one just isn’t great IMO.
