TO RUSSIA WITHOUT LOVE
Hogan arranges for a beautiful Russian spy to convince Klink that the Kommandant should volunteer for service at the Russian front. Hogan's payoff: some secret papers.

Those are on a station called METV in backwater North Dakota. I'm not sure where that station is available.

Of course, less than 24 hours after YTTV announces a price hike and everyone starts looking for alternatives, Fubo (which seems, to me, like the best alternative) announces a hike to right around where YTTV is (which we all figured was coming since they just said they'd be adding the ESPNs a month ago), and drops Turner channels, which creates a potential problem for sports fans if they ever have sports again.

I might end up just eating the increase, although if there's an NFL season and Fubo has RedZone...who knows.

I'm going to eat the increase BUT ask the people I have been letting use my account for free to chip in to help with the costs.

Is Anyone Watching Quibi? The streaming platform raised $1.75 billion and secured a roster of A-list talent, but it can’t get audiences to notice.

I don't like that name Quibi. It's dumb and I am glad it's over with.

Huh. I'll probably qualify for another free trial when Dune comes out. Strange choice. Why not try and get me to pay $20 to see it at home opening night? I probably would (though I haven't with any movie so far). You'd think they'd try and get money outside the subscription for a couple weeks at least.

At the very least they should put at least one full billing cycle between releases. Doesn't look like the case looking at the list.

Unless that bangin' hot dance track from the original film is in it, I can't say I care much about Mortal Kombat.
