Apple TV+ is a platform where you can stream different shows. The viewers can also get subscription video-on-demand web television service. It was launched on 1st November 2015. It was announced at Steve Jobs Theatre during their March 25 Apple Special Event. In the event, many celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Momoa and others were presented. It is accessible in 100 countries. Initially, Apple TV+ was showing poor growth rate, but in mid-2020, it started efforts for older movie contents and televisions. It has signed many multi-years deals with reputed celebrities and creators, including Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Dre, Jason Katims, Monica Beletsky, and now Martin Scorsese.

The duo’s relationship with Scorsese and Dicaprio is one of the most financially successful collaborations in the movie industry. And the connection will help Apple TV+ to grow and reach more target audiences. The two have brought $1.3 billion earning from their five projects. Caprio considered Mean Streets and Taxi Driver as Scorsese’s best films and also inspirational. Robert DeNiro told Scorsese about Leonardo, Niro, and Caprio had worked together in the movie This Boy’s Life. The first collaboration of the actor-director pair was Gangs of New York, which was an incredible piece of art. In the 88th Academy Awards, Leonardo thanked Scorsese for being a guide in his acting journey. He said that he wants to thank Mr. Jones for casting him for his first movie and Mr. Scorsese for teaching him the cinematic art form.

Martin’s and Leonardo’s first film “Gangs of New York”, it was a documentary on Italian filmmakers titled “Mio Viaggio in Italia,” also known as My Voyage to Italy. The production budget of the film was $100 million. The movie was arguably Scorsese’s mainstream project of Scorsese. Scorsese too was having a tough time selling the film until Leonardo agreed for the role of protagonist Amsterdam Vallon. The film received positive word-of-mouth and was also critically acclaimed.

The last movie that the duo has done together is “The Wolf of Wall Street”. The film was based on the memoir of the same name by stockbroker Jordan Belfort. The movie was brilliant and broke several records. It did an outstanding performance at the box office. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Director and Best Picture. Leonardo DiCaprio also won a Golden Globe Award For Best Actor- Musical or Comedy. He was also nominated for the Oscar for the third time, but he lost to Matthew McConaughey. The film was the highest-grossing R-rated film, and it earned a gross $116.9 million in North America and collected around $392 million internationally.

The upcoming movie of Martin Scorsese with his production company Sikelia Production has signed a TV deal and first look film with Apple. It looks like the Scorsese fanbase can witness several films onto Apple TV+. In the movie “Killers of the Flower Moon” the trio of Scorsese, DiCaprio and De Niro are building great excitement among fans. It is a historical crime drama based on a non-fiction book released on 8th April 2017 by Doubleplay. The book is about an investigation series of murders of Osage people, which happened in Osage County, Oklahoma, in the early 1920s. Apple has also recently launched the trailer of a sci-fi movie, which is scheduled to release in 2021 and also paid $25 million for the Billie Eilish documentary.

Friends Reunion is Postponed Again

The Friends reunion has again been delayed indefinitely. It was scheduled to be released around mid-August in the year 2020. But due to the global pandemic coronavirus disease- 2019, the project has been postponed with no fixed date. Sad! Isn’t it? After the series of Friends ended after the 10th season, it was hard to believe we could not have any more new friends episodes. And when the reunion was announced, since then, the fans are waiting for it to release. In this article, we will talk about the previous series, when the reunion will be released, and many more insiders. So let’s start it.

Sources :- Friends Reunion

Friends is an American sitcom television show that started on 22nd September 1994. The show was created by Marta Kauffman and David Crane and starred six fantastic actors Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer. The whole series revolves around six friends in their 20s and 30s. The sitcom series built a strong fanbase of different age groups. When the final episode aired on 6th May 2004, it was watched by 52.5 million American audiences, which made it the most-watched episodic series of the 2000s. Friends were nominated for 62 Primetime Emmy Awards. It also won the award of Outstanding Comedy Series in 2002. It also ranked 24 on the Writers Guild of America’s 101 Best Written TV Series of All Time and ranked 28 on TV Guide’s 60 Best TV Series of All Time.

From this new project Friends reunion, all six of the stars of the show, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry were set to earn a pretty significant amount of $2.5 million each for the HBO Max special. The project was meant to tape before live viewers on the NBC comedy’s original somewhere in mid-March. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, the production was halted, pushing the tape to launch on 27th May with HBO Max’s. But now the project has been indefinitely postponed, just revealed by Jennifer Aniston. She played the character of Rachel Green in the show.

The previous series ended after the tenth season in 2004. The story put a satisfying end to the lives of Monica, Chandler, Rachel, and Ross, and also to Phoebe’s stories. But Joey Tribbiani, played by Matt LeBlanc, left dry and high with no happy ending. The audiences want to know, what happened to Ross and Rachel after Friends, are they still together, or is everything okay with Chandler and Monica, and how Chandler is doing with two babies? And any manipulative plot would have been a betrayal of the characters’ arc of the show. Hence, the producer and director turned towards Matt LeBlanc’s Joey Tribbinani character because he had something left in the tank. The character had no happy ending, and he had also grown far less than the other. And watching him succeeding as an actor was a fascinating idea.

When the creators announced the Friends reunion, fans started speculating about the story and the characters’ life they would be going to watch. Questions like would Phoebe and Mike have children? Was Gunther okay about Rachel getting back to Ross? Did anyone remember Ben existed? Those questions were fun, but the answers might not offer satisfaction as it seemed to offer. Audiences had already witnessed that with Joey, the show tried to answer such speculations like Joey’s character could settle down, or could he make his career as an actor. But, things turned out differently, and the show made him a loser. No Friends fans wanted to see their favorite character Joey in such unfamiliar surroundings. However, everyone loved watching Joey’s role in Friends by watching him as the actor in Hollywood was not right. The same could happen with the Friends reunion, there would be a requirement of change in the life of characters after 16 years, and the unfortunate results could be the same.

The new project of Friends reunion is building great anticipation since the first news of the movie came out. And 2020 was the year every fan was waiting to finally know what is happening in the lives of their favorite characters. But when it was finally the time the pandemic spoiled it all. Jennifer Aniston said, “It is unfortunate we had to move the deadline again. It is not a safe time, period, to do this with live audiences. That’s the bottom line. It is not a safe time to do it.” She added, “There’s no denying the delay of the reunion is a huge bummer. But the good news is that it is still happening, it will just take a little longer. This has given the team and us more time to make it even more exciting.” Aniston said she would like to choose to see it as the half-glass full that it got postponed. She said, “Look, we are not going anywhere. And you guys are not going to get rid of Friends. You are stuck with us for life.” At the end of the interview, she concluded by saying, “I just want to get 2020 out and behind us.”

Her interview was a relief, and we do not want Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey, or Phoebe to go anywhere. And also the reunion is still happening, just it is taking some time.

How to select the best streaming service?

Streaming services have enabled many people to cut the cord. Right now, you have many viable options to watch your favorite movies and television series as per your convenience.

But besides having so many multiple streaming services, there is no guarantee that one will meet all your requirements. Every viewer has their own taste and style. Many people have subscribed to various streaming services, but they always end up accessing the only one which suits their preferences.

We will make your life easier by helping you determine which streaming service will be best for you? In this article, we will discuss some popular streaming services.

Hulu

If you want to keep yourself updated with the latest shows, then Hulu is your best bet. Most of the latest episodes of your favorite shows are uploaded on Hulu. Hulu can be used as a replacement for your classic television networks like ABC, Fox, etc. Hulu has a catalog of 85000 episodes including TV shows and movies.

Hulu offers two subscription models: first is their ad version which will cost you $6 per month, while the no-ad version will cost you $12. Now, paying double for an ad-free version largely depends on how much you hate ads. If you want to experience a classic television feel while watching your favorite shows with ads, then paying double will not be the right choice.

Hulu also has its own critically acclaimed series “The Handmaid’s tale”. Along with this, you will also get a bunch of high-profile documentaries like Margaret Atwood and Fyre Fraud. The only disadvantage of Hulu is that you will not get access to every season of your favorite series. So, if you are not a binge-watcher and watch television in your free time, then Hulu is the best option for you.

Netflix

Netflix is a no brainer when it comes to entertainment. Despite having their originals, Netflix offers an extensive catalog of movies, television series, and documentaries. The accessibility of Netflix across devices is pretty impressive as you can run it on Android, iOS, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Android TV, Chrome cast, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Roku.

Netflix will cost you $9 to $16 per month, depending on which plan you choose. The interface of Netflix is very user-friendly. Open the app and select your profile, and you will be redirected to the home page. To make it easier for you, Netflix has divided sections like what to watch next, continue watching, Trending on Netflix, etc. You can also create a watch list to keep track on what you want to see next.

Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime has some high-quality original shows and movies. They have an impressive catalog of old classics and their original series. Although compared to Hulu and Netflix, Amazon Prime does not have an extensive range of new releases and documentaries. Amazon will cost you around $9 per month. Prime Video has 194 original Amazon series, which is larger than Hulu’s originals. So, if you are more interested in the originals, then Prime Video is best for you.

Disney Plus

Disney Plus is the ideal destination for you if you are looking for Disney and Marvel Movies. If you have little ones in your home, then having a Disney Plus subscription is a must. There are some movies that you will only find on Disney Plus. The interface is pretty straightforward and gives you suggestions on Disney movies and TV shows. Disney Plus offers a seven-day free trial, and after that, it will cost you $7 per month.

Peacock

Peacock offers the best free catalog among all and is a bit different from other streaming platforms. Other than movies and series, it also has live news and sports channels. Peacock is similar to many other free streaming services like Roku. But the ad-supported version comes with a lot of ads, and if you wish to upgrade to an ad-free version, you can get their premium and premium plus version which will cost you $4.99 and $9.99 per month respectively.

HBO Max

HBO Max is full of popular movies and TV Shows. HBO Max is the home of the favorites like Friends, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Rick & Morty. HBO Max has a vast catalog of movies like The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, Superhero movies like Wonder Woman and Joker, and other classics.

Conclusion

Streaming is much better than classic cable television because you can watch your favorite movies, series, or even live TV with more convenience. You can choose streaming services based on your preferences and budget. If you are an occasional watcher, then Hulu and Peacock are best for you. If you prefer superhero stuff, then go for HBO Max and Disney Plus, and if you are a binge-watcher, then Netflix is your best bet.

6 Types of Influencers and Ways to Identify Them

Influencer marketing allows influencers of a particular niche to spread your brand’s message to a broader audience. Influencer marketing is more successful because the audience trusts them.

Influencer marketing is of two types:

“Social Media” where influencers spread your brand’s message on their personal social media profiles while in “Content Marketing”, either you create content for influencers or they create it themselves and participate in marketing campaigns.

In this article, we will be discussing six types of influencers and how to identify them:

Mega Influencer

Mega influencers are famous celebrities and prominent personalities with a following of more than “one million”. Mega influencers charge a hefty amount for one social media post. Celebrities like Kardashians, Beyonce, and other A-listers are an excellent example of mega influencers. Their one post can reach up to 10 million likes, and that is what they charge such a significant amount of money.

Benefits of Mega influencer:

  • Massive reach: Mega influencers have a massive following which is perfect if you want to spread brand awareness.
  • Professional: Mega influencers can be reached with the help of agencies, and their specialized team deals with such kinds of endorsements.
  • Trendsetters: Mega influencers are known as trendsetters in the industry, and getting your brand’s name associated with them can create a positive impact.

Macro Influencers

Macro influencers are prominent social personalities specialized in their genre with a following of 10k to 999k. Most of the marketers prefer macro-influencers because they have a broad and loyal audience, thanks to their dedication to one niche.

Benefits of macro influencer:

  • Target audience: Macro influencers have a loyal fan base because they are specialized in their niche. Using macro influencers for product branding can maximize your returns from marketing campaigns.
  • Better content: Macro influencers survive because of quality content. As a marketer, you don’t have to worry about the content quality because they are highly professional content creators.
  • Better access: Macro influencers are easy to access as they are looking for collaborations with brands. They can be approached directly by brands.

Micro-Influencers

Micro-influencers are social media personalities with a strong voice and highly engaged followers. Their follower range can be between 1k to 10k. Their audience has a high level of trust in them because they share their genuine experiences.

Benefits of micro-influencers:

  • Low costing: Micro-influencers do not charge a very high amount compared to other prominent influencers. You can reach out to multiple micro-influencers to reach more audiences.
  • Better engagement: Micro-influencers have a reliable and loyal fan base because of their authenticity.
  • Trust-factor: Audiences tend to follow a micro influencer’s recommendation rather than any other influencers because they hold strong trust in micro-influencers.

The Advocate influencer

The Advocate influencer initiates a conversation about your brand rather than promoting it or defending it. They share their positive experience with your product and services and promote your brand through evangelism.

Benefits of advocate influencer:

  • These influencers create more brand visibility among a wider audience.
  • Promotes your brand with their honest experiences.
  • Makes your brand more visible to your target audience.

Referrers

As its name suggests, a referrer influencer drives more audience to your brand through strong recommendations. They have a strong community which trusts their recommendations. They increase the chances of getting a new audience for your brand.

Benefits of referrers:

  • They increase the footfall and drive more people to your business.
  • They promote your brand by sharing their personal experiences.
  • They create warm leads for your brands.

Loyalist

Loyalists are the ones who stand with your brand through ups and downs. They continuously recommend your brand and increase brand awareness.

Benefits of loyalists:

  • They are loyal to you until the end.
  • They drive a significant section of the audience to your brand.
  • They increase brand awareness by always recommending your brand.

Involving influencers in your marketing strategy can be a game-changer for your brand. Eradicate the traditional digital ad strategy because the buyers are more aware nowadays. They do not get impressed with fancy ads on the internet. This is where influencers hold an advantage. They drive more engagement, make your brand more visible, generate a positive image of your brand, and drive more leads to you. Depending on the objective of your marketing campaign, you can choose the influencer which suits your needs.
