Disney’s dominance to increase as studios return to content licensing

Published

on

Major film and television studios are opening up to licensing their content to other streaming services, with Disney poised to emerge as the primary beneficiary.

Traditionally, major studios have focused on developing their own direct-to-consumer streaming platforms to cultivate direct relationships with audiences and maximize profits from their intellectual property.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent market dynamics have prompted studios to reconsider this strategy, with investors increasingly demanding returns on their streaming investments.

While studios like Disney, NBC Universal, Warner Bros Discovery (WBD), and Paramount Global remain committed to their direct-to-consumer initiatives, they have begun embracing content licensing once again.

According to Ampere, Disney holds a commanding position in this landscape, boasting a library of 148 exclusive titles still confined to its streaming services as of December 2023—more than double the holdings of any other major Hollywood studio.

Beloved classics

Comfort shows, particularly in the comedy genre, are highly sought-after for licensing, representing around 25% of exclusive titles.

Disney leads in this category with beloved classics like “Hannah Montana,” “The Golden Girls,” and “Malcolm in the Middle,” acquired through its acquisition of certain assets from 21st Century Fox.

While Disney’s dominance is notable, other studios also possess valuable intellectual property, such as NBC Universal’s “The Office” and Paramount Plus’ “Star Trek,” which continue to anchor their respective streaming platforms.

Licensing content presents an opportunity for TV shows and movies to find new audiences and extend their shelf life.

For instance, the success of “Suits” surged after NBC Universal licensed it to Netflix, demonstrating the potential for licensing to drive audience expansion and franchise growth.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?

Published

on

Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
