I’m interested in getting the Disney Hulu espn bundle. But I have Hulu live tv already.
So very in for this:
I wanted to be an Imagineer as a kid...
I once talked to a theater owner and he flat out admitted it was overpriced junk food keeping theaters afloat. That was more than a decade ago. The situation has not improved since then. The cost of tickets is the main reason why this is. Another reason is that distribution companies more than half off the top, and Disney even more so.
It's more than just the theatrical model that is dying. Network TV will probably go before it does. I wouldn't put it past Disney to start looking at ABC as the next thing to "restructure." How much longer can they go on paying more and more for a smaller and smaller piece of a pie that's been sitting on the windowsill so long, birds and ants have started pecking at it? How many people born in this century, the newest generation of adults, have any particular allegiance to ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox if they've grown up with so many alternatives to them?
MGM has been clinging to dear life for as long as I've been alive, if not longer. That they lasted past 1990 is a miracle in and of itself. Never mind the omissions from Disney+ or the modern Disney company falling short of Walt's vision in any way; MGM doesn't even own the movies that built its reputation! They lost them and the hyphens to Mr. Jane Fonda, whoops I mean Ted Turner. I'm just scared they'll be Disney's next acquisition since they were already partners in a now-renamed land at WDW. Columbia takes good care of its library, including its multiple pre-Coca-Cola Best Picture Oscar Winners, but recent additions to its catalog are a bit lackluster. Disney will not stop trying to get Spider-Man back from them, but what will them have left if they do? Maybe Sony should just sell it or spin it off, except they might end up in the same boat Paramount used to be in. Paramount is basically being kept alive by Tom Cruise at this point, and that split-up of Viacom and CBS should never have happened. They'll be paying for Les Moonves' misdeeds for years to come, and in addition to the sex stuff, I wouldn't be surprised if there was book cooking, too. Warner Bros. spamming every sector of their business with F(r)iends crap thinking that it is going to pull them out of debt makes me not want to support them, either; wake up, doc: it's not 1994 anymore. Comcast has been better for Universal than I thought. The Vault Fire of 2008 was before they came into the picture, IIRC. At least they have seen fit to start remastering their TV catalog in HD. The one show Netflix lost that I miss most of all is one they own: Murder She Wrote. They had all 12 seasons uncut, in HD and 4x3.
Man I hope not too many Verizon unlimited customers paid for that 3 years in advance deal...
I did and I don't regret it. If I had held off for a deal like this and it never materialized, then I'd regret it.
Secondly, I'd much prefer to work directly with Disney on any potential problems with the service than have Verizon being involved. The more layers I have to do through to get what I want, the worse experience it will be.
If I get a year for both fios and unlimited LTE I will have 5 years for $160. No ragrets.
They are on CNBC right now talking it up
I got excited, but then saw that this was for Unlimited customers only. We rarely use mobile data except when travelling, and even then we monitor it very closely.
Just read that even if you signed up for the three year deal, the free year with Verizon will still work, they'll just delay the three year purchase until the free year is up.
It's much more likely that they will simply extend your subscription end date than some kind of wacky delay as you describe.
Especially since millions of us have already been charged.
The number of people Verizon says will get free Disney+ under this deal...
Millions? Citation needed.
It's on Variety today.
PS. I guess the wacky delay is actually exactly as I described ;-)
that’s what I said. They are extending your subscription. You can say theirs is first or second but it works out the same way
