Today was the official launch of Disney Plus.

For the same price as Netflix, you can stream Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN.

I purposefully canceled my Netflix subscription today, as I'm sure many others did.

With all the upcoming streaming services, Netflix will have to rely on their original content to stay afloat. While some of it is good, none of it is worth having this and other services. Got to browse Disney Plus, and the amount of content is amazing,

Currently, Netflix spends more on content than they generate is subscriber revenue. Not sure how they stay afloat now? This could be the beginning of the end for Netflix. After years of claiming they took out Blockbuster (They did not, BTW), the same fate may be about to happen to them.

Goodbye, Netflix.

I have been seeing reports today that you can buy the new Disney streaming service, but you can't log onto the new Disney streaming service.

I'll stick with Netflix at least until they lose The Office and other NBC products. I like a lot of their original programming, and can usually find something to watch there. I'll pick up D+ once my Hulu deal runs out at the end of the month, and we'll see how long we keep it. Disney owns half of the media out there anymore, but a lot of their stuff doesn't interest me.

Pluto TV?

There is a lot of content there for free. A very good service, IMO.

I will say, Disney <censored>ed up their Lady and the Tramp with itís woke
PC interracial couple crap. I get them changing the Siamese cat song, but having the dog owners as an interracial couple throws the movie off.

But I am loving the amount of content on the channel.

Yes to a degree. They have both said that they understand family streaming dynamics, but have also stated they plan on being very strict with both account sharing as well as piracy.


I imagine if you share with your parents in town you'll be fine but if you share with your sister on the other side of the country or a dozen coworkers, you'll be screwed.

If they do, I hope they fix Star Wars.

It will be check by IP address. Which is the account holder actual number. Any device used at your household will have the same IP address. Them may not let anyone use your account with a different IP address other than that of the paying account holders. How would they know your login isn't hacked?

I'm not sure IP would work as it wouldn't account for your son in his college dorm or your mobile device, your wife's mobile device, etc let alone people with dynamic IPs or a VPN. My guess is there'll be a threshold as well as a geographic component. But who knows. You get too strict and it doesn't matter what content you have, people'll just stick with Netflix which can be super permissive.

We just added BritBox to our Roku. We have come to prefer the British tv series. Almost anything "Hollywood" makes my skin crawl anymore. I haven't had a chance to really look it over good yet as we just added it and have had out of town company we would rather visit with and catch up on their lives than sit in front of the boob tube with (yeah, I know, no tubes). I know it has new episodes of some shows we have watched and enjoyed. We are keeping Netflix as we do enjoy it and my daughter does too.

Goodbye, Netflix.


1---In the UK, I get ESPN through my BT (Brirish Telecom) Sport subscription, which is part of the SKY satellite platform. In the UK, BRITBOX has also just launched. So for me, that's a monthly bill of £70 to SKY/BT, which inc my monthly broadband bill, plus extra for Netflix, Apple, Disney if I want. I currently only take Netflix, again via my SKY. Might take out the £5 a month for Britbox, but tbh many of its shows are already shown on repeat either by the BBC and ITV/CH4 or by satellite channels that specialise in classic/contemporary repeats like UK Gold, Dave, or the Drama Channel.

I can see why people stick to the networks lol. The 'free' channels of BBC1, BBC2, ITV, CH4 and CH5 cost me about £4 a week.

Netflix, Apple, Disney etc all make great TV, but it adds up in money terms.



Question for all here: in the UK, we have various ways of watching satellite and cable which are NOT tied to a contract with the likes of SKY or Virgin Media. Companies like FREEVIEW or NOWTV. Does the US have similar?. They are popular with people who cant afford the big monthly bills to SKY or VIRGIN or simply don't want to be tied to such companies.

2--I follow TV and was genuinely horrified by the amount of money that Netflix has spent and was spending at its hype peak. Insane amounts. They have trimmed it back but still spend gazillions.

3--The Simpsons took the mickey out of Netflix and the whole culture recently: Homer gets a job at a Netflix type company and exposes the fact that this company does not and simply cannot make the 600 shows it promotes, but gets away with it because NOBODY can watch all 600, lol.
