“Baby Yoda.” These are two words that many consumers have come to recognize, and frankly adore. The surge in popularity of the lovable character is symbolic of the company behind it. During its fiscal Q1 earnings call, The Walt Disney Company reported strong growth for its direct-to-consumer division, which includes Hulu, ESPN+, and newly-launched Disney+. Disney announced subscriber figures for each of its streaming services for the first time, illustrating its success in the...
One of the most interesting announcements at CES 2020 was the April 6 launch date for Quibi . Intended to target Millennials, Quibi – short for Quick Bites – is a smartphone-only OTT service, featuring only video content of 10 minutes or less. Although there are plenty of apps which emphasize short-form video, an exclusive feature to Quibi is that all content is viewable in both horizontal and vertical screen orientations.

During AT&T’s WarnerMedia Day on October 29, the company announced details of its upcoming streaming service, HBO Max. Previously, sparse information existed regarding the SVOD, with only an idea of its name, a general launch date, and limited knowledge of its content library.
