On the contrary, the right reality shows can perfectly fit with how everyone is using tik tok and Instagram today, especially with who's being followed the most. That's not even mentioning how the Kardashians became a huge pioneer of the genre for years to come. There are even kid versions of reality TV that I've noticed my nephew and nieces watching on youtube. You don't have to like it, but it's not going anywhere for a long time.I thought this trash "Reality" show trend would eventually decline but it seems as strong as ever.
Your other points I see the merit in but this one is a bit off. Those shows you’ve watched in the past month were most likely filmed way before this merger started to have an effect on anything at all, so it’s too early to tell if that will be the future content output. It’s more likely that those shows were placed in July because that specific content might get the most views during a month like July. Even Netflix and Hulu have a rotation of reality tv shows that they dump out during low content months. I’m not saying you’re fully wrong in your prediction, I'm just saying it's too early to tell.
This is one of those weird situations where I assumed one company was way bigger than the other but it is actually the other way round. Also Discovery+ was shit when I had a trial.
It became the infomercials it used to sell time to in off hours. Didn't take long either. I cut cable in 2004 and it had largely changed, but didn't realize it was all part of the same group of cable networks producing similar content.
Watched the Discovery Channel launch video in my country from 1994. What a difference.
I laugh thinking how it would be called woke nowadays. Only because people fell asleep to with the tv on.
With any luck in time whatever develops from youtube and tiktok might destroy Discovery.
New article, if anyone cares. Not sure if it really elaborates on much but it sets a date for summer 2023 for the new combined service launch.
Normally the web puts high street chains out of business. Not the other way around.
HBO has just shown off The Last of Us TV series, so I'm sure they're on the up.
