  1. Dont forget the ESPN 30 for 30 American Gladiators Part 1 on June 2. That’s going to be fascinating.

  2. I must have missed the announcement last month that the original Law and Order was back. Albeit S21 rather than the current S22. For those interested, this week will be Ep5 on Fridays, 8.30pm on Universal TV.

  3. Will WBD NZ launch CNN FAST in NZ Philip as part of a refreshed Three Now? https://rxtvinfo.com/2023/cnn-launching-new-channel-in-the-uk-and-ireland/

  4. WBD NZ is keeping a tight lid on its FAST plans, Leo, so I can’t say. But this service sounds more like an arrangement with TV manufacturers like LG and Samsung so they can add value and distinguish their product in the marketplace. I note the report says Samsung TV Plus already offers a live CNN International stream on its connected TVs but I don’t believe Samsung’s NZ models do (they have Samsung TV Plus with live GB News but not the CNN feed). In any event, CNN Fast sounds like a highlights service similar to what Fox News offers on connected TVs rather than unfettered access to what Sky customers pay for.

  5. WBD announced the FAST plans in December last year. It appears they are anything but FAST.
