Showbiz Sandbox 550: The Olympics Win A Streaming Gold Medal

Like music, movies and television, the Olympics have put streaming front and center during the summer games. It’s easier than ever to watch the hundreds of events taking place in Tokyo over the next two weeks. However, it can be torture figuring out what sport is playing on what channel or streaming service and when. We dive in and try to make sense of it all.

Of course with everyone streaming television these days, including the Olympics, it’s been hard for Nielsen to keep track of how many people are watching what programs. In fact, a number of major media conglomerates are calling for Nielsen to be decertified claiming they no longer trust their ratings.

Of course we also cover the week’s top entertainment headlines including how streaming music is dominated by catalog titles, this year’s Kennedy Center honorees and rising COVID cases are once again delaying movie releases and productions.
