AT&T is carrying on the trickle of data about its next WarnerMedia streaming service, and now it is more particular about the type of content you will receive. Kevin Reilly (TNT and TBS President) claimed at a Television Critics Association event that the beta edition of the service rolling out in 2019 will not have originals. You’ll have to hang around 2020 for that. It will, on the other hand, provide some of its most coveted content. Reilly claimed that you can expect the firm to eventually host its “crown jewels,” and may even pull must-have shows such as Friends away from Netflix. It’s “not a good framework” to share productions such as that, he claimed.
The executive also claimed that there will be original DC Comics content, and that some originals will arrive from outside WarnerMedia. He also floated the likelihood of “active windowing” where shows will not always find a stable home. Reilly clued at the possible interface, which will have a “more modified feel” to assist you wade via a daunting sea of content.
On a related note, earlier a media report defined just how simple it was for anybody to get the location of phone of a different person. By handing more than $300 to a bounty hunter, the media was capable of buying the location data of a particular phone, which was almost precise. And the procedure displayed just how faulty the data chain is between mobile suppliers and the firms they offer location info to. Now, suppliers are slashing connections with location aggregators, and AT&T is the newest to declare its intentions to do so.
“In 2018 we shut most location aggregation services while balancing some that defend our users, such as fraud prevention and roadside assistance,” AT&T claimed to the media in an interview.
