Of course, there probably aren't a ton of YouTube TV subscribers who have a PlayStation 5 at the moment, given the rarity of the console.

Netflix Kids profile redesign adds show characters for young users

Netflix has kids' profiles that enable parents to restrict young children to age-appropriate content. This is a great tool, but one limited by the child's ability to read and find what they want.

Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” trailer is a Netflix zombie movie must-see

Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” trailer is a Netflix zombie movie must-see

A mash-up of "Oceans 11" style heist movies with killer zombies does not, at first glance, sound like it would make sense, but clearly nobody told Netflix and Zack Snyder that, and that's probably a good thing. "Army of the Dead" sees the director of "Justice League" and "Dawn of the Dead" bring his unique vision to a movie shaping up to be equal parts horror, action, and a little comedy too.

Google Play Movies & TV on some smart TVs is shutting down

Google is notorious for having a handful of overlapping and sometimes redundant messaging platforms but it seems to be a trait shared by almost all of the company's digital content services. Until just last year, YouTube Music and Play Music competed for attention and subscriptions and Google also had multiple news and magazine apps.
