Interactive Monday: Streaming Services
Hat tip to Kareem for uncovering this CNN interactive to assist those overwhelmed by choice when it comes to streaming services.
The interactive starts with a helpful flow chart showing where fave series like Friends, Parks and Rec and Seinfeld are moving to.
It then lists 8 of the leading streaming services (e.g., HBO Max, Netflix, Apple TV+) with details on what to expect from the service as well as popular movies/shows that will appear.
Here's the details on Disney+:
A few activity ideas on this:
- What criteria are important in selecting a streaming service?
- Your family has a $20 monthly budget for streaming services. Which do you choose and why?
- Identify which service you think is the "best deal" and why?
- What is your discovery process to find out what movies/TV shows you should watch on streaming?
We have an Interactive Library with dozens of ways to engage your students.
About the Author
Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
