Notre Dame vs. Duke: Live stream, watch online, TV channel, kickoff time, football game preview – CBS Sports

You may have missed it, but No. 10 Notre Dame is a member of the ACC. Well, at least the Irish are a member of the conference for the time being. With COVID-19 turning the college football season on its head, Notre Dame agreed to join the ACC for the 2020 season in an effort to ensure it was able to play a full season. Notre Dame has played five ACC opponents as a partial member of the conference for a few years now, but that number has doubled this season.  

Notre Dame is even eligible to play for the ACC championship. How incredible would that story be? Notre Dame joins the ACC for a season, wins the conference — beating its top team for the better part of a decade — and then returns to life as an independent program. Can you imagine?

Of course, there’s a long way to go for that potential scenario to play out, and the first step is on Saturday afternoon in South Bend when the Irish will start the season against the Duke Blue Devils. The teams do have some familiarity with one another. They met in Durham last season with the Irish winning 38-7. Duke has had success in South Bend, Indiana, however, winning the last time it made the trek north in 2016. The Blue Devils won that game 38-35.

Storylines

Notre Dame: I don’t want to harp on the potential of Notre Dame winning the ACC too much, but it is somewhat funny to me that the Irish joined a Power Five conference this year and you can make a strong argument their schedule got easier in the process. While the Irish aren’t a team that’s on Clemson’s level — very few are — it enters the ACC as the second-best team in the conference. That doesn’t mean there aren’t concerns, though. This is a team that lost a lot of production from its 2019 squad, though that is offset quite a bit by having Ian Book back at quarterback. Having an experienced QB might be more important than ever before during the 2020 season due to a lack of preparation time for all. Of course, Notre Dame also has a new play-caller on offense in former QB Tommy Rees. 

Duke: While Duke doesn’t get a whole lot of attention as a football powerhouse, you can be sure that plenty of NFL scouts will have their eyes on the Duke defensive line this season. That’s where you’ll find Chris Rumph, one of the best defensive linemen in the country. This will be an outstanding test for him against what should be a strong Notre Dame offensive line. Elsewhere, eyes will be on transfer QB Chase Brice. Brice transferred in from Clemson, and the team is hoping he can give the offense more from the QB spot in 2020 than it got last year. Duke finished 12th in the ACC in both passing yards per game and passing efficiency, and has to improve on that if it’s hoping to put together a winning season in 2020.

Viewing information

Date: Saturday, Sept. 12 | Time: 2:30 p.m. ET

Game prediction, picks

Picking games will be harder than ever before this year because we might not find out players are missing until just before kickoff. Still, given what we know about both of these teams heading into Saturday, I have a hard time not taking the Irish. As mentioned above, the Irish beat Duke 38-7 last season in Durham, North Carolina, and I don’t think enough has changed for either team to expect this year’s contest to go much differently. I feel comfortable taking the Irish at anything better than three touchdowns. Pick: Notre Dame (-20.5)

Sony will stream a PlayStation 5 games showcase on September 16th at 4PM ET – Engadget

Sony has taken numerous opportunities to show off PlayStation 5 gameplay ahead of the console’s launch, but it’s ready for another. The company has announced a PlayStation 5 games showcase event that will stream live on Twitch and YouTube on September 16th at 4PM Eastern. It didn’t tease what games would appear, but the 40-minute virtual presentation would include titles from Sony’s Worldwide Studios and “development partners” and include games arriving on launch “and beyond.”

Of course, there’s a lingering question: what about price and availability for the PS5 itself? Now that Microsoft has revealed Xbox Series X and S pricing and ship dates, Sony doesn’t have much of an excuse to keep quiet on PS5 release details. There’s no guarantee you’ll hear about availability during the showcase stream, but now would be as good a time as any. After all, you can’t pre-order the system without those key details.

Hulu will stream Black-ish episode Disney controversially shelved in 2018 – The Verge

In November 2017, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote an episode of his Emmy-award winning ABC comedy titled “Please, Baby, Please” that tackled racism in America, ranging from the Charlottesville protests to kneeling in the NFL. Just a week before it was set to air in 2018, Disney shelved it. Now, the episode will finally see the light of day on Disney’s general entertainment streaming service, Hulu.

“We were one year post-election and coming to the end of a year that left us, like many Americans, grappling with the state of our country and anxious about its future,” Barris wrote in a statement on Twitter. “Those feelings poured onto the page, becoming 22 minutes of television that I was, and still am, incredibly proud of. ‘Please, Baby, Please’ didn’t make it to air that season and, while much has been speculated about its contents, the episode has never been seen publicly…until now.”

The episode is available to stream on Hulu right now, but it’s unclear if Disney has plans to air the episode on ABC. The network could use new programming, and there is interest in the Black-ish episode following the company’s controversial decision to shelve it. Originally, the network’s primary concerns were “related to comments that characters made about President Donald Trump, not to the football storyline,” according to Variety. The episode arrives in wake of mass protests around the world fighting racism and injustice.

“I cannot wait for everyone to finally see the episode for themselves and, as was the case nearly three years ago, we hope it inspires some much-needed conversation — not only about what we were grappling with then or how it led to where we are now, but conversations about where we want our country to go moving forward and, most importantly, how we get there together,” Barris wrote in his statement.

The episode focuses on Anthony Anderson’s Dre telling his son Devante a story about the first year of mankind on Earth, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Combining allegorical storytelling and very real news clips, including kneeling NFL players and protesters, allows Barris and his team to address the anxiety much of the country faced on year into Trump’s presidency, the creator told THR back in 2018.

Both Disney executives and Barris’ team were on board with the episode — a high profile production that cost more than $3 million and had talent like Spike Lee attached. Then, a week before the episode were set to air, executives all the way up to then-CEO Bob Iger reportedly expressed concerns over alienating audiences, with Iger speaking to Barris about the “political sensitivities of being a broadcast network in 2018.”

Also worth noting: Disney was in the middle of trying to acquire 21st Century Fox. Angering a Republican-led Department of Justice while trying to make a deal is something Disney executives apparently wanted to avoid, according to THR.

The network suggested Barris and his team make edits to the episode, but “it wasn’t as easy as a nip here or a tuck there, and the sheer tonnage of anti-Trump material rippling through the episode ultimately made the exercise futile,” according to the Reporter. Instead, both sides scrapped it. Barris would go on to leave the ABC family and sign an overall deal with Netflix worth $100 million.

Now, the episode will live on Hulu for the time being. Disney’s general entertainment streaming service surpassed 35 million subscribers in June.

Facebook To Stream Official Music Videos From Next Month, In A Challenge To YouTube: Report – Benzinga

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) is reportedly set to introduce officially licensed music videos on its social networking platform in the United States, posing a potential challenge to Alphabet Inc’s (NASDAQ: GOOGL) (NASDAQ: GOOG) video streaming subsidiary YouTube LLC.

What Happened

The San Francisco-based company is scheduled to debut licensed music videos next month, TechCrunch reported Tuesday.

Facebook has set an August 1 deadline for video submissions, failing which it would create a page on its own for the videos, according to the material reviewed by TechCrunch.

Artists are not required to add their videos manually. Instead, they can enable a new setting that will give Facebook permission to add their music videos to respective Pages, which fans can access by clicking on the Page’s Videos tab.

An excerpt from an email explaining how music videos will be shared on Facebook leaked on social media.

Facebook to launch a official Music Videos feature for artists to rival YouTube?

— Matt Navarra (@MattNavarra) July 14, 2020

Artists cannot fully share their music videos on Facebook at the moment due to licensing rights but can publish short previews.

Why It Matters

Music Business Worldwide (MBW), an industry information portal, citing a report by Swiss non-profit organization IFPI, stated that YouTube accounts for 46% of all music streaming listening time globally — excluding China. 

The San Francisco-based company claims to have paid out more than $3 billion to the music industry in 2019 from ads and subscriptions.

Facebook was reported to be pursuing deals for rights to music videos with major music labels such as Vivendi SA-owned (OTC: VIVEF) Universal Music Group, Sony Corporation’s (NYSE: SNE) Sony Music, and Warner Music Group Corp (NASDAQ: WMG) last year.

Price Action 

Facebook shares traded 0.4% higher at $240.75 in the pre-market session on Tuesday.
