AT&T will pull popular shows like Friends from streaming competitors, says CEO
Shows and films will become exclusive to AT&T’s streaming service
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson confirmed today that AT&T is planning to pull WarnerMedia-owned content like Friends and ER from rival streaming services and offer it exclusively on AT&T’s upcoming streaming service.
“We are going to have to take a lot of the great content we own that’s been licensed elsewhere and bring that back into the fold,” Stephenson said at a conference in Dallas, as reported by The Dallas News.
I’m going to go ahead and start the countdown clock for the burst of the streaming bubble. We all knew that the explosion of content was going to be accompanied immediately thereafter by an explosion of stupid…and here we are.
