Julian said “I suppose it's for the for the big six clubs to really have a careful think about whether that's going to benefit them long term or damage the Premier League overall and therefore harm them in the long term.”

Julian acknowledges that on the one hand the prospect of bigger teams playing more games against each other – UEFA’s stated aim for its competition revamp – is “very very attractive”, but on the other there is a finite appeal to any competition.

“Just because you increase the number of games in the competition doesn't always necessarily mean that you're increasing the quality of the competition overall."

Tom said "This could mean that Disney + has the potential to grow its subscriber base by 50% by reaching more households interested in more adult programs under the Star tab. " 

Disney + 's economic model was largely based on synergies with theme parks, cruises or cinemas, even if these activities are very weakened at the moment by the health crisis. With these new Fox content, Disney + is becoming a subscription video service "which can better find its economic balance on its own."

Tom said “The biggest problem Disney has is also its biggest advantage — everyone knows its name and probably has a warm, fuzzy childhood feeling about it. But what are they going to do with American Horror Story? Is Twisty the Clown going to sully your memories of going to Disney World and meeting Mickey Mouse?”

He added “While streaming services like Spotify destroyed the album, streaming services like Netflix just reinforce the idea that what a TV show is, how long it is and the rhythm of it, have been optimised over 60 years. A few years ago Netflix was talking about using data to make TV shows. Now that’s completely turned around. They’ve hired people who know how to make television — the distribution method changed, but the people making it are the same people who always have.”
