Don’t know if this has been posted before but I found another one…

When I hear the name Gaia it reminds me of a kids tv show Captain Planet .

Are they serious with that pricing WTF $15.99 a month… ridiculous. The annual plan still has it over $10 a month at about $11 i suppose that sort of is decent . Then the third tier works out $35 a month though you can livestream all live events whatever that is .

i think the sorts of people that service appeals to would pay that, especially of they can’t get to the hot yoga studio due to lockdowns.

Found out about this one yesterday. Never heard of it until now:

Preview isn’t working but it’s pretty much just a streaming service for NBCUniversal reality shows.

Depends on what you follow though - the probably biggest impact is for fans of the EPL sides who play in Europe

There is an existing thread on Hayu.

Back in January Roku purchased all the unaired programs that had been made for failed short video streaming service Quibi. Some of the series were released on the Roku Channel in May, with more being released later this year. I wonder if any will turn up on a streaming service in Australia?

Does this include Australia? Or does Sportsflix still have this?

DAZN only has boxing here but it says globally

Yes, worldwide. All matches will be simulcast on YouTube for the first two seasons, with a third of matches on YouTube for the last two years.

Sportsflick had the rights previously, minus PSG matches which were on BeIN Sport.

An outfit that I had never heard of before today is The Market Herald, which is a stockmarket news website aimed at Australian investors that has a two minute news update every hour and state they make a couple of other programs. They appear to have big plans for what they call the Market Herald Business Television Network. The company is listed on the ASX. One of the bulletins from today:

Presentation wise this looks quite good, set is nice and graphics are good - whilst some of the transitions are quite good quick. I didn’t even have enough time to read the tagline under the name.

The presenters annunciation could do with some work though, but overall not bad.
