Episode 44: Barkley stays, Peacock falls and DirecTV makes a move

Andrew Marchand and John Ourand discuss why TNT's Charles Barkley said no to LIV. They examine the issues surrounding Comcast and Peacock. They go deeper into how the Champions League rights deal looks as if it may come down to the incumbent CBS/Paramount+ vs. Amazon. They also talk about how if they were TV and streaming programmers they would be doubling down on women's sports because the viewers are there. 

Those earning mentions include Chris Russo, Mike Francesa, Bill Morrow, Brian Roberts, Greg Norman, John Sterling and Aaron Judge.
