    HBO Max HBO Max - AT&T / WarnerMedia's Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    Why does Blazing Saddles need a disclaimer intro? It’s a comedy that makes fun of racism and prejudices, that’s the point of the whole movie. The only people who should be offended by this movie are the racist themselves.

    Peacock Peacock - NBC/Universal Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    I don't watch much on Hulu because the audio is still 2.0 only on Apple TV. I deal with it for sports in the Live TV section but, rarely use the service for anything else. It should be a crime to only offer stereo in this day and age.

    Disney+ Disney+ Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    I don’t like the precedent this could set. Disney+ is suppose to be an all inclusive subscription service but, not anymore. Send it to Vudu or iTunes if you want to charge $30 extra. Hey, if it works for them then they can just charge extra for all new stuff and delay access for the regular...

    Oh, well, yea. I forget about them because, what, they have, like, 10 minutes of content. :biggrin:

    Peacock Peacock - NBC/Universal Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    None that I see, have no idea about what’s coming. I just don’t understand why these new service have failed so miserably at supporting 4K, HDR/DV and Dolby Atmos. Disney was the only one that got this part right. I guess they set the bar so high that the others just gave up.

    Peacock Peacock - NBC/Universal Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    I downloaded it and created a free account. I’m actually pretty impressed with the content, quite a bit that interest me and of course, many of them require a premium membership. This is more like what I was hoping for from HBO Max but, with WB content. Plus, Peacock’s most expensive plan is...

    Apple TV+ Apple TV+ Video Service - Exclusives, Shows and Subscribers discussion

    What about the new audio sharing feature, where you can connect 2 sets of Air Pods at the same time? This is the feature I'm most excited about.

    Peacock Peacock - NBC/Universal Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    To bad that sale price ends today. I'd rather see what is not included for free before paying. Even 5 minutes of ads per hour is too much IMO. Well, maybe not, depends on how they are spaced. My biggest pet peeve with ads is the constant breaks, I don't like my shows being interrupted. So...

    Disney+ Disney+ Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    "Modern" being used loosely. The Abyss is 31 years old. In 1989, I doubt we would have refer to a 1958 movie as modern.

    Hamilton (2020)

    I posted that back in 2018. Things have changed since. Our family now has an Apple Music subscription so, I decided to give the Hamilton album another shot. I don’t know why this time was different but, the music grew on me. Maybe I paid attention to the lyrics and story more but, whatever it...

    YouTube enters the streaming tv market

    I've tried to look into their app plans but their website is so confusing. Currently there is an offer for something called TV Essentials for $14.99. Says 60 channels but no sports channels. Then there is something called TV Stream and is only 25 channels but cost $24.99 for 2 years (don't...

    YouTube enters the streaming tv market

    Well I did because it was cheaper than cable, now not so much. For that $119, I'm sure you got 100s of channels. I was completely fine with the $35 version of YTTV, it fit my needs perfectly which is mainly for sports. I think it was around 40 - 50 channels at that time. Then they started...

    HBO Max HBO Max - AT&T / WarnerMedia's Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    Honestly, this is why I think I'm disappointed with the service and will probably cancel before my next billing date. I knew the branding was using the HBO name but, I thought this was going to be Warner Bros.' version of Disney+, not HBO with some additional WB offerings. We just haven't used...

    YouTube enters the streaming tv market

    And removed on of my regional sports networks earlier in the year. I canceled yesterday, even though the change doesn't happen until August. We may give Hulu Live TV a try but haven't decided. Since we already pay for no ads Hulu, adding the TV plan is only a $49 increase, what YTTV cost...

    I agree but, I’m not holding out much hope for a good Atmos presentation when they can’t even get basic 5.1 right.

    HBO Max HBO Max - AT&T / WarnerMedia's Streaming Service (Official Thread)

    I get 5.1 but I’m on Apple TV. Although I had a different issue last night. It was family movie night and we decided to watch Fantastic Beast: The Crimes of Grindelwald on HBO Max. No one in the family had seen it yet. Movie night is when I really crank the volume up, love it when the house...

    Digital Review The Mask of Zorro Digital UHD Review

    First, I’m not saying turning off HDR kills all 4K, it just reverts to streaming the HD version of iTunes movies that are 4K HDR. Any iTunes movie that is just 4K (no HDR at all) still plays in 4K and other apps like Netflix still play in 4K. I didn’t explain the process good. I wasn’t using a...

    Digital Review The Mask of Zorro Digital UHD Review

    This is exactly what I’m saying. Mine would still show 4K when swiping down as well but, the stream would max out at 1080p. The only way to confirm this is by enabling dev mode and turning on the stats overlay. To do that, you have to have a Mac that can run the current version of Xcode. That...

    Uh, kids still play with guns, probably even more than we did as kids when you add in digital versions from games like Call of Duty, Fortnite, etc. The toy guns tend to be replicas of Star Wars blasters, Nerf guns that look futuristic or other things similar, instead of replicas of real guns. I...

    Digital Review The Mask of Zorro Digital UHD Review

    This is the issue for 4K HDR/DV iTunes content on the Apple TV. In my experience, when you turn off HDR/DV, you no longer get the 4K version but the regular HD version. I use to be able to confirm this back when I could enable dev mode on my Apple TV but, Xcode now requires the newest MacOS...

    I honestly didn't know you had to "strike" a deal with Roku. I thought it was more like the Apple TV where you build an app and then submit it to the Roku store. On Apple TV, it wasn't even a brand new app, it was just an update to the HBO Now app. Surprised it wasn't the same for the HBO Now...

    That's right, I don't know what I was thinking. When I read the article I read it as if they sold the complete rights to Universal. I blanked on "licensing" for streaming. Yes, the article linked to early explains that they had to buy back the rights from Universal to make them available at...

    I never really understood why WB sold the right to Harry Potter. I can understand selling the theme park rights but, the movies? That's their Star Wars or Marvel. Hairspray (2007) is in 5.1! The iTunes version that you can buy is still only in stereo.

    I signed up for the week trail but, I'm not sure I'll stick around. The content looks good but, I'm just not happy about the price. I think $14.99 is too pricey and I don't want to encourage other providers do follow suit. The only other services I pay that much for are Netflix (which...

    CBS All Access CBS All Access Streaming Service (Rebranded Paramount+ in 2021)

    I finally finished watching ST Picard and immediately canceled. This service is the least compelling streaming service with a ridiculous high price for commercial free viewing and what little content is available. I'll re-sub once the entire season 3 of ST Discovery is up and I can binge it in...

    Hamilton (2020)

    I have never seen Hamilton in person, my only experience is the cast album. I assume that this will be a heavily censored version of Hamilton because the cast album has f-bombs all over the place and one song mentions a lady spreading her legs. Don't get me wrong, none of this bothers me but...

    Universal Plans to Release its 2020 Theatrical Slate Day and Date to Streaming

    What I don't like about rentals from services like iTunes is that you can't apply that price towards purchasing the movie. I think it would be great if they gave you a grace period of like 2 to 3 additional days where you can turn the rental into a purchase minus the rental fee you already...
