Here be a discussion of all streaming services, small and gargantuan.

DISNEY+ IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MY VIZIO SMART TV FOR CASTING BECAUSE OF OLD VERSION ON VIZIO THAT HASN'T BEEN UPDATED IN SIX YEARS OH GOD I’M UPSET.

Also doesn’t seem to be working on my PS4 right now but I think that’s a login server issue here on day one.

Also Netflix, Hulu, amazon prime, yada yada yada.

    Man, I forgot how hype the end of season 2 and all of season 3 Haikyuu is. Also how good the training arc in the first half of season 2 is. So many great character moments getting set up and paid off, along with some very exciting plays. Still highly recommended! It's on Netflix, with both subs and dubs.

    I'm blocked at work, but yeah, appears to have standard in-browser streaming options...

    In retrospect it should've been obvious, but all of SW in 4K HDR has me hype nonetheless. Even if it is the SE versions.

    Looks like Disney+ has a lot of content, but also a few glaring holes, such as incomplete seasons of Gravity Falls and the new Ducktales. Hope that gets ironed out.

    But it also has the complete Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, which is boss.

    I know if you buy the good Simpsons on iTunes it's also cropped widescreen to try and make it HD or something, it really turned me off of buying more than just season 5. Just give me the original airing, original quality, and leave me alone. Thankfully I still have Seasons 1-10 on DVD

    So for the past month or so, about 90% of the time I try to watch a show on Hulu, the first time I hit play, it plays for a second and then freezes. I have to back out to the menu, then play it again, at which point it works fine. This is on the Xbox One.

    It didn't used to happen. It started around the time I dropped Hulu Live, but i'm not sure if it exactly coincided or not. Anyone else seen this? Is there a solution?

    It's not a huge deal, it just means playing a show takes an extra few seconds, but it's mildly annoying.

    I was disappointed to learn this morning that I do not qualify for Verizon's free one year of Disney+. Apparently my Unlimited data plan does not include the deal. Alas!

    Apparently the version of A New Hope on Disney+ has yet another edited version of the Han vs. Greedo scene?

    I wish Netflix and other streaming services treated their content more like music.

    Let me make Christmas playlists! Put in a 'random shuffle' button!

    Having to click over to another page to add something to the watch list is super annoying. Hulu, a streaming service they also own, has the 'mouseover to add/play' why couldn't this?

    Apparently
    Greedo still shoots first, but they added two more words he says before he fires, which apparently mean something like “I will end you.”

    I'm amazed they haven't just removed Han firing at all and given him a walkie-talkie.

    There was nothing wrong with the scene as is, George/Disney! Which pretty much sums up all the changes.

    Behold, the reason I still have my Buffy DVDs on the shelf, and still watch the 480p rips I did from them:

    Probably one of the worst examples out there, and great that this dude had so much time on his hands to really break it down.

    EDIT: For the TLDW version, lots of lazy auto cropping, lots of what appears to be automatic postprocessing and color processing...including scenes that are supposed to be at night now appearing to be daylight (because they were darkened in post), that kind of thing. Just really, really bad.

    I want to pay money for Disney+. You'd figure Japan would be one of the first to get it, considering they have two Disney parks.

    Nope. Best I can tell is it's not coming until 2021. They got their own thing called Disney Deluxe, which of course doesn't have The Mandalorian.

    Hey, so did I! I really liked the show but my partner thought it was dumb as bricks. Lots of like 'okay, sure' moments, but it IS a show about super heroes so I just sorta let that stuff slide most of the time.

    Jesus christ, it's like colourizing black and white movies all over again. It wasn't made for Widecreen you assholes. Just accept it for how it was made. Just fucking leave it be.

    God, I only watched like 5 random minutes in the middle of that video and it's like a goddamn crime scene. Just so sad to see how badly they fucked that up.

    Mandalorian was overall good. Some of it like riding the things was weird, and felt like it was just there to fill time. Also the run time of 38 minutes was hella bizarre.

    The run time I appreciated because this was apparently the shortest episode of the season and in hindsight I think it may have ended up exactly as long as it should have been in that it had goals and accomplished them.

    There's a dedicated thread now but as far as the riding goes:
    I took it as another example of how important the Mandalorian culture was to the main character. The armor forging scene got across to me as him caring about the culture but the learning to ride scene really drove it home. I will say there were parts of the riding montage that took me out of it a little due to the quality of the CGI but it wasn't anything major.

    Hellmouths are something you must revisit occasionally.

    And I just found out that Disney+ has the 90's X-Men and Iron Man cartoons. I know where my weekend is going.

    Google search tells me https://www.justwatch.com/us is probably the most popular way to do that. I often just Google the movie itself and the answer usually appears.

    The final season of You're the Worst finally dropped on Hulu, and I binged through it in like two days. It's a fantastic final season to a fantastic show, and the last episode is one of the best series finales I've ever seen, in that it just perfectly encapsulates the themes of the show, who the characters are, and where they should logically end up.

    Except now I'm out of new episodes and I'm sad.

    In general, the show's treatment of mental health issues was pretty great.

    That Aya Cash never got an Emmy nom is a tragedy.

    This show sounds like the anti-Friends. Is that accurate? Less sitcom, more real. Still funny.

    I'm looking for another show to watch with my wife since we're at the end of Brooklyn 99.

    I ugly cried during the last episode. It's one of my favorite shows and is one of the few of those that totally nailed the ending.

    It's very quick and smart with the jokes, isn't afraid to tackle real problems, and understands their characters such that by the end of every season they've changed and grown and regressed in realistic ways. They are all flawed but also loveable and real and I miss them and their lives.
