Most people in the United States are either working from home or home under quarantine because of the Corona virus. Streaming services are getting huge viewership but because of the virus there is a lack of new original content.
Bob Saget and the cast of Full House have put the above video together from their quarantined houses and tweeted it out for fans. The video is cool and is just one of the many ways that the entertainment industry is still being creative; as well as getting content out in theses tough times right now.
On last nights two hour The Masked Singer not one but two celebrities were unmasked with the Penguin and the Black Widow being revealed. The Penguin was actress and comedian Sherri Shepherd with the Black Widow being actress and singer Raven Symone.
Tonight is the return of the Masked Singer on FOX with a two hour special starting at 8 pm. All eleven remaining celebrities will perform and not one but two of them will be unmasked tonight.
In the second hour of tonights show comedian Anthony Anderson will join the panelist at the desk. This show may be a little campy but its fun guessing along with the panelists and, deciding who the celebrities under the masks might be. It’s also a chance to see again celebrities that you might not have seen in a long while, either way it’s a fun show.
Sony Entertainment has announced that it will close its television streaming service Playstation Vue in January. The service was one of the early streaming services when it started in 2015 but never seemed to get much traction at present only has 500,000 customers.
I have subscribed to PlayStation Vue in the past and in many ways it was the closest to traditional cable television that it aimed to replace. The service was easy to use and had a very good unlimited dvr service although items deleted after 30 days.
There were several issues with PlayStation Vue from the start including poor marketing but one of the biggest issues was always the name itself; Because the name was PlayStation Vue most people presumed it just worked on your ps4 even though the service was available on just about any computer, tablet or streaming box.
The cost of programming also was an issue for PlayStation Vue as competitors such as AT&T owned their own content and channels so they were able to negotiate for better pricing. The customer base is small compared with their competitors which left them at a disadvantage when they tried to compete. The market is very competitive with Apple Plus which just debuted and Disney Plus coming soon as well as HBO Max coming next year so maybe its a good time for Playstation Vue to close.
In recent days there were stories that Sony tried to sell Playstation Vue but it all comes down to content and content deals without out much content yourself or large subscriber numbers to negotiate good deals it leaves you in a tough position. I will miss Playstation Vue which was a very good service but in an ever more competitive marketplace they won’t be the last streaming service to close.
