Summary The first comprehensive account of the biggest wake-up call in the history of the entertainment business: the pivot to streaming. Go inside a disparate group of media and tech companies--Disney, Apple, AT&T/WarnerMedia, Comcast/NBCUniversal and well-funded startup Quibi--as they scramble to mount multi-billion-dollar challenges to Netflix.
