Tastytrade has been out for a while, so it's a good time to see what ETers think. My initial impression: overall I think it's good, with a few drawbacks. The good: their headline program with Tom and Tony is well done. Both of them are natural and the banter back and forth makes for a lively program. There are a few people they have on the show who I wouldn't have, but that's me. The rest of the programs are ok; SLM and Liz/Jenny are good all around shows, but not quite at Tom/Tony's level. They seem to focus mostly on premium selling strategies, which they highlighted with "Karen the Supertrader." The bad: they initially tried to make this a comedy central type network. Satire/humor is tough to pull off. A lot of their "commercials" and comedy segments are unfunny or seem forced. They have some weird gameshow that should be ditched. The future: they have $20 mil in venture funding and seem to not have a great deal of costs. Tom's probably not taking a salary since he has skin in the game. And they shoot out of a Chitown rowhouse. The rest of the staff probably doesn't cost a whole lot, so Tastytrade can probably make it for a few years before profitability. So what do you think? Like/dislike? Do you think their strategies/programming are helpful? Do you think they'll survive?
