The streaming wars are about to begin? The media seems to be pressing that thought, while we know that this has been happening for a while. That’s not to say it isn’t going to be becoming more of a mainstream focus (this is a show all about it after all), but it is now less than a month away from two pretty big players entering the war. This week with the media focusing on things more than normal we learn about a few new services that will be coming soon along with a looming “threat” of piracy. Take a listen to Dustin and Tony as they discuss all the latest news from around the world of the streaming services.
