Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

@FuchsiaShock It is worth noting that, according to the article and has been in plans for years, that the episodes will still air on PBS after a time delay. theverge.com/2019/10/3/2089710

A different source I lost said HBO has exclusive access for 9 months, but I'd true that's only a minimum.

I've not seen anything about restricting rebroadcasting, but I don't know if Sesame Street leans heavy into reruns.

Still bad, not worst, but not better.

@Mycroft @FuchsiaShock Correct. This has actually been the case since 2016 when HBO took over production. It will still air on PBS, just after an exclusivity period.
