Emily Steel, writing for the New York Times:
Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit group behind the children’s television program, has struck a deal with HBO, the premium cable network, that will bring the next five seasons of “Sesame Street” to HBO and its streaming outlets starting this fall.
The partnership will allow Sesame Workshop to significantly increase its production of “Sesame Street” episodes and other new programming.
. . .
After nine months of programming exclusively on HBO, the shows also will be available free on PBS, its home for the last 45 years.
The distribution game is changing for everyone.
