Did you get a teenager to help you hook it up?
You know, this convo has gone from streaming, to box office, to lesbians, but not much about Lightyear itself.
I guess that shows how woefully uninteresting the actual (non lesbian scene) content of the movie is.
There's nothing interesting enough about the movie's themes, messages, scenes, characters, etc. to discuss about.
And that is the sad truth
Those who grabbed the 3 year discount plan are also the type who are already super-fans.It was priced very low by standards to start. Churn would be more of an issue if they go into Netflix pricing, no?
Well... Moana keeps showing up on the top 10 most streamed movies according to Nielsen, so, D+ could survive on Moana alone!I don’t think the new titles are what people care about though. The value is in the headliner movies, not the re-runs of Glee. This appears to be backed up with the data (hours watched).
That’s what “works” about Netflix... they are putting out content people actually want to watch.
Yes, last quarterly called. It was mentioned it was on the way by the end of the year, just like for Netflix.Wait there is going to be a totally free option? Sorry I must have missed that.
I concur.It was priced very low by standards to start. Churn would be more of an issue if they go into Netflix pricing, no?
One of them is surprisingly goodI concur.
And, giving the devil his due, Chapek isn't raising D+'s price until it regularly puts out more original content to justify the perceived value. We're getting there: a Star Wars and Marvel series on at the same time!
Funny how Wall Street geniuses now think people want to embrace overpriced commercials again…after trying to lure them to reject them for 10 years prior.Yes, last quarterly called. It was mentioned it was on the way by the end of the year, just like for Netflix.
Two years in and the streaming wars already is having a paradigm shift.
Tho, some of the streamers, like Hulu, already do have FAST.
Both Obi-Wan and Ms. Marvel have fair to good ratings. As well as Lightyear.One of them is surprisingly good
The other is a flop.
Bad week when a Pixar tent pole and a marvel series flops
I’m sure Thor will sweep it under the rug - however
Lightyear is officially a flop…I just read an article clarifying miss marvel as the same. I don’t think it was in the Onion…but I’ll try to find it.Both Obi-Wan and Ms. Marvel have fair to good ratings. As well as Lightyear.
Lightyear may have failed financially in the theatrical Box Office, but those who have seen it rate it fairly good.
Individual preferences notwithstanding and not representative of all people.
I suspect Netflix is the future Blockbuster if they don't buy a major studio/network. Or simply become an aggregator/bundler for other services under the recognizable streamer brand. I can't see how a streamer without a huge QUALITY library survives at their price point and they've lost a lot of popular stuff back to their creator/studios' competing services. I'll add in Apple+ who also needs to buy a studio/network/content generator. Three or four good shows is not a reason for people to commit long term. Especially in a potential recession. Now, if Apple bought Netflix... (I still don't think they have enough content people want for long term but it's an interesting thought and buys them content quantity without unnecessary physical assets like Disney's theme parks, etc..)Netflix is so far ahead of them both in subscribers and top watched content i highly doubt they ever win that race. The fact is, coming in as #2 is a pretty big success.
Twice a year?I think D+ will hemorrhage subscribers in a couple of years unless they start producing massively more new content. These 6 week series twice a year is gonna bore the fickle crowds
I currently have a 99 cents/month promo deal for Hulu for the year. If I can't get the same deal for next year, it goes, even though I have been watching a fair amount of content on there - mostly catching up on Fox and FX shows as most of their movie library content is OLD and not worth paying for and circulates amongst other free services anyway.Eventually, all of the content of Hulu that is Disney owned will be merged with D+.
How many hours is that?Twice a year?
