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.

Tim Ranzetta

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.
