As studios and streaming services continue to bargain, negotiate and generally negotiate with preferred partners, it is becoming increasingly difficult to discover which movies will be available where and when. Amazon latest Universal offer is the case.
Amazon has signed a multi-year contract for exclusive rights to stream Prime video content for universal live theater releases, which will launch next year. According to a report from Rock, will cover blockbusters like J.urassic World: Dominion,, Get out the next horror film by director Jordan Peele and Halloween is over.
However, the deal is for part of the pay window, which is 18 months after the film was shown in the theater. Just a few days ago, Universal reached an agreement with his brother and sister NBCUnivers, Peacock, for the first four and last four months of the window.
So, that should mean that within four months of their theatrical release date, Universal’s action films will start airing on Peacock. Four months after that, they will move on to Prime Video for ten months, before returning to Peacock for at least another four months.
Universal’s plan seems to shift the release schedule around different streaming platforms to ensure that its films reach more audiences on different services – while keeping those platforms happy with what they get. The trouble is, you may be struggling to find the movie you want to watch – or miss the opportunity to watch it – unless you pay a lot of attention to the movie’s release dates.

Expensive phone for special glasses.
ASUS and Qualcomm have teamed up to make a smartphone that displays some of the latter’s mobile technologies. Although the phone is reportedly intended for 1.6 million members of Snapdragon Insiders, it will be widely available by August.
Strangely, it will not have the highest quality Qualcomm mobile processor (Snapdragon 888+), but the Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, with what is described as “the most comprehensive support for all key 5G sub-6 and mmWave ranges” of any device, along with WiFi 6 and WiFi 6E. There’s also 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
The screen is also outstanding: it is a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate and up to 1,200 nits of brightness. The rear 64-megapixel camera will also be able to record 8K video.
It will be one of the first phones to support Snapdragon Sound, which has low Bluetooth latency, crosstalk profiles, active noise cancellation (ANC) and high-resolution audio support up to 24-bit 96 kHz. Along with the stereo speakers, the phone comes with Master & Dynamic true wireless ANC headphones, which is a nice touch. The ASUS Snapdragon Insiders smartphone will initially be available in several countries, including the US, UK, Japan and South Korea. It will cost $ 1,499 when it arrives later this summer.

Here is LiveWire’s first electric motorcycle.
The most striking feature of Harley-Davidson’s new LiveWire One is its price. An electric motorcycle will cost $ 21,999. That’s almost $ 8,000 less than the $ 29,799 the original LiveWire sold when it came out in 2019. With federal subsidies, Harley-Davidson expects most U.S. customers will be able to get LiveWire One for less than $ 20,000.
Harley-Davidson has also improved the range of motorcycles. Driving through slower city streets, LiveWire One can cover 146 kilometers on a single charge, the company claims. By comparison, its predecessor was limited to a maximum of about 110 miles in the city. Using a DC fast charger, the company says you can completely discharge a LiveWire One battery in about an hour.
Harley-Davidson’s second electric motorcycle will initially be limited to customers living in California, New York and Texas, as currently only 12 dealers in those states are authorized to sell LiveWire One. However, the bike will be available at more vendors coming this fall. Keep reading.
