    I wouldn't hold my breath on that. It was because of production delays we got the gap weeks, not network scheduling. With the exception of the one time they pulled the show for the iHeart Radio Awards, anyway.

    Seth McFarlane has said the show is produced in the same way as ones filmed for dedicated streaming services such as netflix (can't remember if the relevant article was linked in here or the S2 thread). It doesn't air until production on all episodes is 100% complete so there won't be any breaks due to production blocks.

    Except it was already confirmed during the first season that its gap weeks were due to backed-up post-production. Same reason for why a season one episode was held back until the second season.

    It makes a fourth and fifth season much, much more likely.

    So, good news.

    That's disappointing, as I don't subscribe to Hulu and have no plans to. Netflix and CBS All Access are enough for me. However, I am interested in Disney's new streaming service, so I suppose if there's some sort of bundle deal then I would consider it.

    What I've been hearing is there might be a bundle between Disney, Hulu, and ESPN +. I can go for that.

    Yeah, I have a feeling nothing will change on our end. It's kind of ironic that that so many streaming shows are actually broadcast in Canada, and that's because we lack of options for the most part, but I'm also glad they're just being broadcast. Makes things simpler.

    This is disappointing news. I already subscribe to Amazon Prime Video, CBS All Access, CuriosityStream, DC Universe, PlayStation Vue, YouTube Premium, and WWE Network. I'm not about to add another subscription.

    I have Hulu but lately only use it for Lost and Community, and I have Lost on DVD anyway. I might get rid of it and certainly won’t keep it just for Orville.

    I hate the way streaming is turning into basically having all shows on a premium model.

    It can be expensive, but you are the final arbiter of what you get. Beats a couple hundred bucks a month for cable, and then only being interested in four or five channels spread across multiple expensive tiers.

    You already have too many services.

    It was inevitable. A'la carte on steroids.

    That won't be a problem for me as I'm also looking forward to Ghost Rider, Helstrom and the third season of Runaways.

    And I always have to laugh the people who say something along the lines of "I have Netflix and CBS all access so I won't subscribe to anything else ever." as if they didn't have the option to very easily drop one service or another for a month, pick up another service for that month and binge the shows they want to watch, and then go back to the previous setup.

    Also, there's the shows that film in Canada need to air on broadcast TV in Canada in order to get their tax credit for filming in Canada. Which, granted wouldn't be a factor for Orville since it films in the US. But then, so does Picard, and it's airing on Space in Canada.
    Hell, since most of the services usually offer one month free trials, you don't even really need to ditch one of the services you're already subscribing to.

    Good. I already watch it on Hulu.

    Now I won't have to do with that goofy FOX app to watch the live airing.

    And, and has already been stated, it makes further renewals more likely.

    Yeah, exactly. Even with Bell owning both Crave and the Space Channel (Or CTV Sci-Fi as it's going to eventually be renamed to), the difference with Canada is that both options are available. I don't think streaming-only networks are a viable thing in Canada as our population is not quite big enough to support it unless one is Netflix. Bell had tried Crave as a subscription service (and was forced by the government to open it to all, I believe), and Shaw's Shomi service was forced to close down to a lack of subscribers. Canada as a result seems to have both feet firmly planted in both plants, using the streaming options strictly as an alternative viewing option. Kind of makes me wonder how well CBS-AA Canada will do seeing as they can't have the same stuff.

    I already have Hulu, so I'm happy that's where it's going.

    Can you do that more than once? Will they not have your name in the system?
