What’s up with the state of streaming these days? Well, the good news is that the era of free TV is back! The bad news? You’re gonna have to sit through some ads.

On this week’s episode of the Adweek podcast Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad, creative and innovation editor David Griner is joined by TV/media editor Jason Lynch and digital media reporter Sara Jerde, to talk all things streaming.

The trio cover everything from Disney’s recent $71.3 billion purchase of Fox to Viacom’s big bet on Pluto TV to why showrunner extraordinaire Mike Schur still loves making comedies on NBC.
