Another negative point that anon hasn’t mentioned: on streaming services, you don’t own anything. Want to get an offline copy of your favourite show to watch it whenever? Too bad, bucko. Watch it on our terms or don’t watch it at all.

You will own nothing and you will be happy -Netflix

  • WEF, not Netflix

Most Western corpos are told to direct masses in this way, to become narrow minded capitalist consoomers.

And then you want to rewatch your favorite show and it’s not on the platform you’re currently subscribing to.

Fuck it, I’ll host it myself on Plex.

they want to pivot into becoming a production company production companies are threatened by this

I thought it was the opposite, where all the production companies saw $$$ in Netflix’s business model and Netflix started producing to fill in their content because it was getting a little sparse for a minute. idk

Yeah you’re right, it was a realization for companies like Disney; “why are we letting them profit from our stuff when we can do it in our own terms?”

I’m surprised music companies are not doing the same with Spotify, but I guess most of the music is under UMG (I think) anyway.

You wish people go back to piracy in masse. Try looking for MP3s online.

The mid 2000s were a magical time for the internet.

I feel like movies are just too restrictive in terms of time, whereas TV shows give a story far more room to properly be told. Movies are like the visual equivalent of turning a 1000 page book into a 100 page novella and insisting nothing important has been left out.

Of course, some stories can be told well in 1.5 to 3 hours but for the most part, I think movies are a poor format for storytelling.

They are great yeas, but they are also non essential. They are far from being essential.

yeah, but living life with only the essential stuff would be kinda boring, don’t you think?

There are short movies, sketches, real life shows, and things like Comedy Central but for other languages and cultures.
