  • Mohammad bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, made his country to acquire stakes in three major video game publishers. Recent SEC filings spotted by Bloomberg show that Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, which bin Salman chairs, purchased more than $3.3 billion worth of shares in Activision-Blizzard, EA and Take-Two.

    Note that SA usually just execute US orders in this regard, and US needed fresh nice money this year and it also helped rising stock bubble.

  • It is real tragedy

    The average U.S. consumer now has access to six different TV services, and is increasingly inclined to add more to ensure they can see the latest exclusive programming options. That’s according to Hub Entertainment Research’s annual Best Bundle study, which found consumers average 5.7 different services including OTT services, traditional pay-TV providers and over-the-air (OTA) broadcasts received via antennas.

    The average number of TV service options climbed by one from a year ago, and has doubled since 2019.

    The study also found four-fifths of TV consumers now use a streaming TV service. The number of viewers with traditional pay-TV services has declined by 7 percentage points from a year ago, while the number of viewers using any streaming service grew only 2 points over the same period.

    Almost three-fifths of all TV consumers take two or more of the most popular subscription video on demand (SVoD) services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Disney+ and HBO Max. The number of those with two or more of those services grew 8 percentage points, Hub found.

  • Mordor dynamics of wideband internet

    image

    Note that fixed connection part is barely growing, but mobile one will be reaching 100% soon.

    Of course it is shitty internet with big limits and with traffic cost around 100-200x of fixed one.

    But media presstitutes tell you opposite thing - how modern is to visit all sites from totally tracked personal smartphone (and almost all of them don't have VPN installed even).

  • Russians spend an average of 5 hours a day in front of digital devices on work tasks and 3 hours on personal matters. Most of the time behind the screens of digital devices is spent by residents of the Central Federal District (7 hours a day), young people 18-24 years old (8 hours each), people with higher education (7 hours each), managers (8 hours each).

  • According to the survey results, in Russia the most popular social network was VKontakte (48%), as well as Instagram (39%), YouTube (34%), Odnoklassniki (32%) and TikTok (17%). The number of users of the worldwide popular Facebook, Twitter and some other networks can be disregarded, and many of the respondents do not use any platforms at all - 16% of all respondents.

  • Some proper measures

    The Chinese authorities have banned minors from appearing on streams, introduced responsibility for promoting Internet stars under 16.

    Children are not allowed to participate in commercials that display wealth and worship of money or extravagance.

    In addition, to stop spread of porn videos, the Chinese authorities ordered to cleanse social networks and instant messengers from content harmful to children. The platforms - Kuaishou (one of the TikTok analogues), the QQ messenger, the Taobao platform and Weibo (the Twitter analogue) - have been fined.
