    I don't see the amount of streaming services being any sort of problem for viewers. Since you can switch back and forth at will you can binge one service, then cancel and subscribe to another, and just keep going like that all year. It's the services who will have to deal with all the churn.

    They'll eventually all switch to weekly releases soon to mitigate that option.

    I hear people say that all the time, but is just sounds like way to much of a pain in the ass to me.

    Yep. I don't have the fucking time to binge. Got shit to do.
    And I'm getting very comfortable with the idea that I don't have to watch every fucking show out there. I'll survive if I miss something.

    Surprisingly many streaming services also let you sign in for a free first month multiple times a year if you just change your email address :whistle:

    Anything on the services I don't get that I really want to see, I just buy on Blu-Ray, like Titans and Doom Patrol from DC Universe.

    They never announced the bundle for Hulu+ ad-free tier, so I just went for the amazing D23 prepaid Disney+ deal. I only have a desire to watch ESPN+ once in a blue moon when there are lots of good events all in 1 month, so I can just get it for those rare months of the year.

    For the price of the bundle it’s like getting ESPN for free.

    No, because I don't want the ad version of hulu even for free. Life is too short to watch ads.

    The Disney Plus twitter spent a few hours this morning posting every single thing that will be available on November 12.

    In chronological order.

    https://twitter.com/disneyplus

    If you scroll way far down, you'll see the list starts with Snow White from 1937.

    Kind of fun to make your way upwards from there.

    I wonder what process is now used to determine where a new show goes... Abc, Freeform, Disney Channel, Nat-Geo Chan, or Disney+...

    Interesting looking at what's on the list and what's not.

    The Force Awakens and Rogue One are there, but not The Last Jedi or Solo. Star Wars Resistance is there, but we'll see if it's just season 1, and we'll have to wait a few months for season 2 to appear. Or maybe episodes from season 2 will show up on a weekly basis. Who knows?

    Avatar is not there, despite being used in promotion earlier this year.

    Though once again, this is just stuff that'll be available on November 12, so maybe Avatar and The Last Jedi and whatever else will show up within a few months.

    Marvel movies include: Iron Man, Iron Man 3, Thor The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and Captain Marvel. (And Big Hero 6, if you want to count that.) I think we heard Endgame would show up a few weeks after launch.

    Oddly, the Inhumans tv show is there, but not Agents of Shield or Agent Carter.

    My Donald Duck set has an intro from Leanard Maltin doing exactly that. I believe Whoopi Goldberg also spoke up for leaving Mami Tooshoes in the Tom and Jerry toons. Films should be left alone as they are. I'm sure in a hundred years people will get offended by some of the films that have been coming out the past few decades. Societies will always change, but we shouldn't change old films just to meet the current agenda.

    I imagine the reason Last Jedi and Solo aren't there is because Netflix still has the rights to stream them. Once those rights are over, they will be on Disney +.

    I am also guessing that Netflix has syndication rights to Agents of Shield. I wonder who owns Avatar right now? I am sure Disney tried hard to buy it back.

    The one thing I'm most disappointed isn't included is the Aladdin series. They have all three movies, but not the series.
    The only other Disney animated series I didn't see is the Little Mermaid one.
    Some stuff that caught my eye:
    The Black Hole
    The Black Cauldron
    Star Wars: Rebels and Resistance, I only saw about 1/2 of the first season of Resistance, and I've only seen up to midway through season 3 of Rebels and none of Season 4
    Gargoyles
    Talespin
    Darkwing Duck
    Ducktales, I'm surprised to see they have the original, but not the new one
    Flight of the Navigator
    The Tron movies and the animated series
    The Muppet movies and The Muppets TV series
    Bedknobs and Broomsticks
    The Sound of Music, sadly I've never seen this one
    the Marvel animated series
    The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, and Prince Capsian, I noticed they have the first two Narnia movies, but not the third one. I thought that one was released by Fox?

    Probably only distributed by Fox, but made by someone else who owns the rights. Too lazy to look up details right now :)

    Right. Agents of SHIELD is on Netflix and Agent Carter is on Hulu. Despite Disney being the majority owner of Hulu, I imagine they'll still have to wait for the deal with Hulu to expire before they can move it. Both of those shows, as well as the entirety of the MCU movie catalog were included in the trial roll out in the Netherlands.
