Baffling that they'd cancel it after such a return to form. They'd probably try and blame me for not binging it as soon as it got released :lol:


It’s so weird that Netflix only seem to be looking at the first few days/weeks. The whole point of a Netflix type service is that people watch things in their own time.

I guess it’s s hangover from network TV, hopefully that attitude dies out and companies in the future look at the bigger picture.

I guess we don't know all the ins and outs of what has made them come to these decisions but it's not hard to imagine that even if Disney have no intention/ability to move the shows over to their service they may still have just said "We want our ball back please" and essentially made it impossible for Netflix to continue with them.

I think this is more likely the case and I can imagine Disney would of seen how popular the shows are and if Netflix wanted renew the contract I'm.guessing Disney wanted a lot more money.

From what ive read the shows on Netflix were only partly funded by Netflix and partly funded by Disney.

I thought it was acknowledged openly that that Disney wanted all of the IPs back for their own streaming service? I can't remember where I read it but I haven't stored it in the bullshit part of my memory. That doesn't mean it's not bullshit though...

I hope Disney realise I won't be subscribing to their service

Do Disney not care about me?

I will however be downloading the gooseberry fool out of all their shows. I've got enough streaming subscriptions thank you very much.

I think they see the success of things like Netflix and Prime and think they want a slice, but the crucial thing to realise is that a major appeal of streaming services is that they have everything you want on them. How many people subscribe to even more than one? I imagine there are a lot of people with Netflix and Prime, but that's justified by Prime being more than just a streaming service.

A Disney service as the only place to get Disney owned content will be full of great stuff, like Marvel and Star Wars, but it will be /only/ their stuff, so it's not what I want.

I like a lot of Netflix exclusive content, but if that was all they offered I would not subscribe. It's the fact that they have a ton of other films and series too that makes it appealing.

Maybe I underestimate the power of exclusives in the market. Drawing parallels to gaming, Disney seem to be doing a WiiU era Nintendo, in selling their platform on their content alone. People don't want multiple services and I would assume only Disney diehards will make Disney streaming their only platform.

I can justify two services. Netflix and Prime (As you mentioned, it's more than just streaming).

NowTV will be brought back when Game Of Thrones comes back then cancelled again. But I can't see myself getting this Disney one unless they have some stellar stuff. Star Wars and Marvel shows are not necessarily enough for me.

I'll be all over that Disney service for the Marvel and Star Wars stuff. Can't wait.

I have Netflix, a student subscription to Prime and a cheap NowTV entertainment deal.

Not convinced I’ll carry on with Prime when the student discount runs out (2020 :lol: ) or NowTV if I don’t find cheap deals. Anything else can strawberry float off.

If anyone can make a "single provider" streaming service work then it's Disney as they own a ridiculous amount of content now. But even then I'm still in the same camp as others and can't see this offering enough to make me want to add it to what I already have, unless it's significantly cheaper than Netflix and Prime.

I think I read somewhere the average person is signed up to two streaming services.

I personally only use Netflix and when I have prime activated Ill watch some of the Prime exclusives.

With Disney having the big titles, I see big numbers when it first launches and people use a trial period and they will get big bumps when blockbusters are added as I'm guessing they won't appear anywhere else but ultimately unless its very competitively priced I can't see it working.

I think one of the solutions to division of content on these services would be to introduce a pay-per-view option where you only pay for the individual series you want. Of course, this won't happen as a recurring subscription is worth many times over a one-off purchase. However, I think they are missing a trick because if they played it right they could use it as a means to promote the subcription to those who might actually be interested. For example, if someone buys access to a series you could drop them a special offer on subscribing just as season two hits.

The best solution is to subscribe to one or two of the services and just pirate whatever else you want.

Actually read this the other day and it seems pretty relevant.

I was only really subscribing to Netflix for the Marvel shows. I have Amazon Prime all year round and dip into Now TV occasionally too when they have enough new movies I want to watch.

Yep I can see why that is.

I get why Disney, HBO and all the others want their own services, but it’s just going to piss people off.

I’m not willing to subscribe to more than 2 or 3 services and I expect a lot of people wouldn’t even go that high.

Yeah 2 services max for me, and one of them is likely to be Amazon as I can't see me dropping that because of the deliveries, music and other stuff you get.

I'll look at the Disney service when it comes out but I imagine I'll be sticking with Netflix and Prime for now.

In actual DD related news, managed to watch up to episode 5 last night. That extended prison scene in episode 4! :shock: :datass:
