‘something for everyone’: how nbc’s streamer stands out

WarnerMedia unveiled its newly named HBO Max and its deep bench of 10,000 hours of programming (including Friends) in July. Disney+ showed off new footage of Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian in August. Apple executives revealed Sept. 10 that Apple TV+ will cost just $5 a month, undercutting all competitors. Amid the jostling for position among the next generation of streamers, NBCUniversal had been noticeably quiet. That changed Sept. 17 as the media giant revealed that its forthcoming U.S. service, dubbed Peacock, will be flush with 15,000 hours of programming. New shows from Mike Schur, Lorne Michaels and Sam Esmail? Peacock will have them. Reboots of onetime hits like Battlestar Galactica and Saved by the Bell? They’ll be there, too. Modern classics like The Office and Parks and Recreation? Viewers won’t…

is dick wolf next? comcast shopping massive library

Dick Wolf may be the only producer on the planet who can top Big Bang Theory’s eye-popping five-year, multibillion-dollar streaming and syndication deal with WarnerMedia, announced Sept. 17. THR has learned that the prolific producer and executives at Comcast, his home of nearly three decades, are in early discussions for a mass licensing deal that, if Wolf has his way, could include the complete catalog of Law & Order and spinoffs SVU and Criminal Intent; his three Chicago shows; potentially CBS’ FBI as well as New York Undercover; and unscripted shows like Cold Justice. That’s 72 seasons and 1,568 total hours of content — plus a possible green light for the updated New York Undercover, which is drawing interest after ABC’s pass in May. Factor in unscripted and those rare…

hbo max’s ‘huge problem’: much cheaper competitors

When Apple CEO Tim Cook took the stage in Cupertino on Sept. 10, he lobbed a grenade into the streaming wars. After unveiling a Nov. 1 launch date for Apple TV+, Cook revealed the grand finale. “And it is just $4.99 per month, for the whole family!” he said, his voice rising as applause grew. “All of these incredible shows for the price of a single movie rental. This is crazy!” To competitors like AT&T’s WarnerMedia, that price is crazy. HBO has long been a profit driver for WarnerMedia (and Time Warner before it), with margins north of 30 percent, and an operating profit of around $600 million per quarter. The company is betting that its forthcoming HBO Max service will bring that model to the streaming era. But if Disney+ started…
