A rather slow news week brought more focus to WarnerMedia and the fallout from their massive restructuring. Under that umbrella, there is news related to some of the DTC services that are not HBO Max and the future of them surviving the restructuring. Is CNN the next brand to get a DTC service? Could Crunchyroll be sold? Will DC Universe meet the fate that Tony and Dustin predicted since last fall? All of this and more can be found in the latest episode of The Streaming Wars.
