Apple Music TV launches as MTV-style 24H music video stream

The move into 24-hour music videos follows the recent rebranding of Beats 1 as Apple Music 1, alongside two more live radio stations.

Further details were scant before launch, but Lowe’s involvement implies a connection between the new TV channel and Apple Music 1 radio station (formerly called Beats 1), its on-air hosts and its purview, which is geared toward hits but features adventurous programming, largely overseen by Lowe.

On Thursday (October 22), it will celebrate the upcoming release of Bruce Springsteens’s ‘Letter to You’ album with an “all day Bruce takeover” featuring music-video blocks of his most popular videos, an interview with Zane Lowe, anchor of Apple Music’s radio station, and a special livestream fan event.

Apple Music TV has been launched today, as a 24-hour stream of music videos and music-related content along the lines of the original MTV channel before its dilution into reality TV.

The concept of a 24-hour music video TV channel was pioneered by MTV (Music TeleVision) back in 1981 after an earlier test in 1977.

Biden ad enlists the Beastie Boys to highlight unsung victims of the pandemic

has kept track of the many live venues that have closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Music venues, theaters, concerts, comedy clubs, dancehalls, and other venues have been shut for more than six months in the U.S.

Called “The Blind Pig,” the Biden spot features Joe Malcoun, co-owner of the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based music venue that the ad is named for, talking about his experience in 2020 so far.

It's a fitting accompaniment for an ad aimed at shining a light on the devastating impact the pandemic has had on live performance and the venues that's support them.

So, when a major U.S. presidential candidate wants to air a political campaign ad on television to highlight the struggles of the live entertainment business, it seems like the perfect opportunity for the Beastie Boys to break their streak and license a song for the cause.

Steve Carell Says Even He Doesn't Know "The Office" As Well As The Superfans

Steve Carell Thinks "The Office" Superfans Know The Show Better Than Him "When people reference lines and bits… some of them don't really ring a bell at all."

If you're reading this you probably agree: The Office is one of the greatest shows to grace TV.

That's when Steve shared, "I don't know if you feel the same thing, but the people who watch the show definitely know the show better than we do."

Steve is able to nail why so many people love the show, though.

"One thing that's been really gratifying for me is like during this really dark time I've heard from so many people that they've really appreciated having The Office there — that it has a warmth and humanity to it, kind of a family feel that makes it a special thing," he said.

Outlook unclear for the return of live events in Silicon Valley

Deb Anderson, senior director of the Silicon Valley walk, said that even though COVID-19 is on everyone’s minds right now, Alzheimer’s remains the leading cause of dementia and is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

A note of cautious optimism was voiced by Silicon Valley Creates CEO Connie Martinez, however, who said performing arts groups and other organizations that rely on live events may come out of the COVID-19 pandemic stronger because of the changes they have been forced to make.

For Bill Fairweather, president of IATSE Local 134, relief can’t come fast enough for his union’s 1,200 to 1,500 workers, who put together and strike sets for live events ranging from Children’s Musical Theater to the Rolling Stones.

Decisions will be made in the coming months on big events slated to come to the arena, Becher said, and he said a best-case scenario for 2021 would include a mix of events, some with fans and some without, and may have to include innovative ideas like live outdoor events that utilize the parking lot.

That was the main message Thursday morning from a panel discussion hosted by the Silicon Valley Organization on the future of live events in a COVID-19 world.

NBC, ABC asking big ad dollars for presidential town - halls - Variety (NASDAQ:CMCSA

And in 2020, that's a bit of a windfall compared to ads tied to the diet of reruns and reality shows (and, clearly, news coverage) that networks have come to depend on during the COVID-19 pandemic as production of more elaborate sitcoms and dramas are affected.

That's not quite NFL football level (more like $277,000-$600,000), but it is in line with some of 2016's top debate ad prices: ABC, NBC and CBS (VIAC, VIACA) were able to draw $198,000-$220,000 for 30-second ads adjacent to coverage of the Trump-Clinton debates in 2016, Standard Media Index says.

Both networks are starting at 8 p.m. ET and are seeking an average cost of $198,000 for 30-second ads adjacent to the events, according to the report.

Reinforcing the high (revenue) stakes for tonight's dueling presidential town-hall broadcasts, NBC (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and ABC (NYSE:DIS) are seeking big ad prices for their events, Variety reports.

Netflix Is Creating a Problem By Canceling TV Shows Too Soon

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Insider: Netflix is killing its most interesting shows in their infancy and it could be the streaming giant's downfall.

In the seven years that Netflix has produced original content, the world of TV streaming has dramatically changed.

Statements from executives have described the cancellations as the result of a cost analysis that tells Netflix a longer-running show won't lead to new subscribers.

Still, with syndicated shows such as "The Office" and "Friends" leaving its platform and a string of disappointing cancellations, including "Glow," Netflix has set itself up for a disaster when it comes to its reputation as a TV-watcher's must-have service.

Why should a Netflix subscriber spend 10 hours watching a new show if there's a decent chance they'll never see it end?

Podcast Scouts Are On The Hunt For TV Content. Here’s What They’re Looking For.

“As with any other piece of material, it's thinking about whether the central question posed by the podcast has legs for adaptation into a series or a film franchise,” says Claire Lundberg, owner and CEO of CTL Scouting, an international literary scouting firm.

The Dirty John podcast, which was itself adapted from an L.A. Times article series, became a Bravo show with Connie Britton and Eric Bana.

Over the past few years there have been several popular TV shows that started off as audio programs.

North Korea's Kim attends military parade

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has addressed an unusual predawn military parade, praising the troops for working hard to respond to natural disasters and to prevent a coronavirus outbreak, state television reported.

The country marked the 75th anniversary of the founding of its ruling Workers' Party with a raft of concerts and festivals early on Saturday, and the ceremony was seen around the region as an event where Kim could deliver messages to domestic and foreign audiences.

State TV began broadcasting edited video of the event later on Saturday after a day of silence about the parade, which was held in Pyongyang's recently renovated Kim Il Sung Square.

Sometimes appearing emotional, Kim thanked the military for working hard to respond to natural disasters and to prevent a coronavirus outbreak.

Kim said he hopes that North and South Korea will join hands again after the coronavirus crisis is over.

Nigella Lawson: ‘I didn't think I’d be a mended person, but I am

Where Slater connects food with the shifts of life – the seasons and one’s own maturation – Lawson roots it in pleasure: the pleasures of cooking, feeding, eating.

In her new book, Cook, Eat, Repeat, Lawson’s first in three years, she says that she so often puts reminders into her phone about chicken that whenever she writes “‘Ta’ the phone autocompletes it as ‘Take chicken out of fridge’, no matter if what I actually intended was ‘Tax return’”.

Cook, Eat, Repeat is Lawson’s most writerly book yet, the recipes interspersed with long essays on subjects such as A Loving Defence Of Brown Food, and (of course) Pleasures, the point being that there is no such thing as a guilty one.

So much of her personal life has been played out in public, from her parents ensuring everyone would know who her famous father is whenever she introduced herself; to her first husband, John Diamond, charting the last years of his life with her and their two small children, Cosima and Bruno, before he died of throat cancer at the age of 47; to her second marriage to Charles Saatchi, which ended in a brutally public manner in 2013, when Saatchi was photographed grabbing her by the throat and holding her nose outside the London restaurant Scott’s.

I first met Lawson in 2014, a few months after the end of the case, and about a year after I’d written about the photos taken in front of Scott’s.

PlayStation 5 will only leave 10 old PS4 games in the back-compat dust [Updated

As has previously been hinted, PS5's new DualSense controller will work with older games, but PS4's DualShock 4 gamepad will not work with PS5 games.

Speaking of color-grading: "HDR is automatically switched on for PS5 consoles," Sony says, but this doesn't confirm whether we should expect any "auto-HDR" treatment for older PS4 games, like Xbox Series consoles offer for older Xbox software.

That weird list is also a possible hint that the metric for "playable" might be a fuzzy one for PS4 games, since Sony is already saying things like the following: That warning is followed by stern advice from Sony: before buying DLC for a game that you want to take from PS4 to PS5, test the game out on PS5 first "to see if you are happy with the play experience."

Sony seems confident in saying that the "overwhelming majority" of over 4,000 PS4 games will play on PS5, so we'll start by pouring one out for the following 10 games that will not: Only one of those appears to be a PSVR exclusive, and the games' commonality is otherwise difficult to ascertain.

When playing the PS4's library of PSVR games on PS5, Sony encourages users to stick with DualShock 4 as a gamepad, suggesting that the older gamepad offers the "best experience" in PSVR.
