Here’s the first teaser trailer for the new Star Trek: Picard series

Just a bit shy of a year ago, Patrick Stewart blew the minds of Star Trek fans everywhere by taking the stage at the Las Vegas Star Trek convention to announce he was returning to the role of Jean-Luc Picard. His return would come in the form of a series made for CBS’ streaming service, CBS All Access. He hinted that Jean-Luc may no longer be the captain we know from years ago — but beyond that, details were light. The first teaser trailer for the series just dropped… and sure enough, it soun...

It seems the legends are true – there really was LSD added to vintage synths. A Bay Area, California Buchla 100 reportedly triggered an acid trip decades later. The equipment in question is a Buchla Model 100, 1960s vintage – the modular that defined what now some people call the “West Coast synthesis” style. I learned on one of these, too, though don’t recall any particular hallucinations. The report comes from a local CBS television affiliate in San Francisco, KPIX, and their broadcast o...

Meet the power players at Netflix leading the streaming giant's defense against Disney and other rivals (NFLX)

Netflix is about to face a bevy of new streaming-video competitors — some larger, with more experience developing TV and film, and with deeper pockets than itself.

Hello, Welcome to your weekly Advertising and Media Insider newsletter, where we catch you up all the big stories we worked on this past week.

TV giants like NBCUniversal and CBS are gunning for direct-to-consumer ad dollars, but challenges still hold back marketers

TV companies that once snubbed direct-to-consumer companies for not having TV-sized budgets are now aggressively courting them.

But many DTC companies that are used to Facebook rates still have sticker shock from television's prices. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The TV upfronts are still f...

Fan reaction to Game of Thrones‘ final season may be mixed, but the show has been undeniably good for HBO’s network — and for its over-the-top streaming service, HBO NOW.
