twitch taps into nostalgia with plans to stream “mister rogers”


twitch is now going to stream pbs’s “mister rogers’ neighborhood.” yes, the classic kids’ show is being made available to the mostly adult users of the amazon-owned video game streaming site. why? well, a couple of reasons. for starters, twitch already has a deal with pbs distribution which has allowed it to stream a number of classic tv programs, including “bob ross’ the joy of painting,” “julia child’s the french chef,” and “cosmos: a personal voyage.” plus, the company is trying to expand into other verticals beyond gaming, and this helps to continue that mission.there’s a bit of kitschy feel to running a “mister rogers” marathon, however. while obviously today’s audience is a sucker for blasts from the past – just look at all the reboots and the revivals of favorite tv shows, for insta

i don’t mind using preferred pronouns. i mind being forced into it
