Our Top Pick this week is the future of CBS all Access, one of the first competitors to Netflix's dominance. CBS All Access deserves respect for surviving 6 years. But it goes without saying it did not set the streaming world on fire like the release of Disney+.
This could change, as CBS has a second chance at a first impression. CBS had a considerable back catalogue of content before its merger with Viacom. Now, it has brands like BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and Paramount Pictures under its banner. This could make a big splash, and get the kind of attention and momentum that Disney+ has received.
This week also saw Quibi’s app launch (pre-order only). YouTube TV welcomed HBO & Cinemax to its offering, and Amazon Prime outpaced Netflix growth in the UK. Could we see Netflix finally explore live sports content to make up lost ground?
Have a great weekend and see you all next week!
