"Let the streaming wars commence," says University of Redlands Professor Kathy Feeley, who can speak to how streaming is changing how people consume media.
"In the last two weeks alone, Apple TV+ and Disney+ have debuted to the delight and consternation of many and entered an increasingly crowded field of competitors: Netflix, Amazon, YouTube TV, CBS AllAccess, just to name a few of the leading producers of and platforms for streaming content," Feeley says. "HBOMax and Peacock are forthcoming from WarnerMedia and NBCUniversal respectively. A dramatically changed future of entertainment production, distribution, and exhibition is underway before our very eyes and at our fingertips."
Dr. Feeley is a recognized expert on popular culture and media. She holds a Ph.D. from CUNY and a B.A. from Colgate University.
