Capitalism done got ahold of  Sesame Street 

Okay but this doesn’t tell the full story.  The only reason Sesame Street was sold to HBO, was because it was literally on the verge of being cancelled.  This was because Sesame Street never received funding from PBS and instead made all of its revenue from things like books, video tapes, and live shows.  Unfortunately, with the rise of things like you tube, people no longer paid for these things, so their funding was next to nonexistent and PBS couldn’t help them because most of their funds go to supporting channels/shows that don’t bring in any revenue at all and service mostly rural areas.  This is where HBO comes in.  They ended up buying Sesame Street to basically save it from the brink of destruction and to let it still be a resource.  
Also, this is one time where a corporation wasn’t entirely greedy.  Yes HBO will still own Sesame Street and new episodes will air on its service, however part of the deal gave Sesame Street a massive flow of cash that will allow them to make twice as many episodes a season.  Additionally, new episodes will still air on PBS, it will just be a few months after they air on HBO (which, let’s be real, isn’t gonna matter to little kids).  
So kids from poorer homes will still have access to the show and will now also have twice as much content to educate them.  Sure having it on HBO first isn’t ideal, but they also aren’t playing the role of the evil corporation this time
