Blind Item #3

This money laundering streaming service is doing exactly as I told you they would do several months ago. No matter how successful a series is, they are getting rid of the entire universe of this comic company.

I thought they cancelled because Disney is doing its own streaming service. Marvel and Star Wars are owned by Disney, no?

You'd think that if Netflix was actually money laundering then everyone who hates them, which seems to be most of Hollywood, would be on them like flies on sh!t snitching to the Feds.

Marvel is Disney, Disney is trying to become Netflix's number one streaming competitor. Of course their business relationship was going to end. I wonder if Disney/ABC will be jumping ship from HULU next.

So now everyone is going to develop their own streaming services to where it is going to cost more than cable did to see the programs you want, it will get unwieldy, then some genius is going to come along and package the channels, and we're going to wind up being happy paying three times as much as we used to just to get back to where we started.

I love Jessica Jones. Someone has to pick it up.

Not really a blind, is it? We all knew this was coming.

Brayson87 said...

@Vita, but no more f*cking commercials!😄

Enty, you know why "the money laundering streaming service is doing exactly as [you] told [us] they would do several months ago?"

That's because anybody with half a brain was able to see the writing was on the wall as soon as Disney started to work on their own streaming service, long actually before you told us...

Disney owns a part of Hulu i believe so they'll prob leave content

Jimbonius said...

Disney streaming will definitely impact every other streaming service. Just the amount of content that will be available only on Disney will almost guarantees success if priced properly.

Troy Dyer said...

I’m hoping the Disney streaming stuff will be available on Hulu because having three streaming services is hard enough, I don’t think I can handle a fourth #oldmanrant

I was talking yesterday with a friend about what kind of content Disney streaming will have. I mean everything up to PG13 would be kosher, but would they or could they have any R or MA content on a Disney branded service?

sandybrook said...

Absolutely they had no choice Marvel is exclusive to Disney and their service.

Flashy Vic said...

The only downside about them giving up the capeshit is that they'll probably replace it with even more Spanish or Korean language worthless bullshit.

"Because you watched F is for Family", then recommending some Bollywood abortions is more than a fucked up algorithm.

Angela said...

Marvel is keeping ties with Hulu.
They actually announced last week a bunch of animated shows about characters from the adult lineup of comics at Marvel, like Howard the Duck. I guess that Disney and Marvel will handle the PG-13 stuff directly, while they will output the R stuff to Fox for films (Deadpool) or to Hulu (in which Disney now owns a majority share) for TV shows.

Enty sure loves throwing around the Money Laundering accusation when he doesn't have much else. Most lawyers know what money laundering entails, but Enty uses it at his own convenience.

I just don't see Krysten Ritter getting butt fucked in a dive bar men's room on Disney. Whatever Marvel reboots they do, the "dark" will be drained out of the super hero genre.

VDOVault said...

Does Disney/ABC still own a piece of Hulu? When Hulu 1st launched, they did (along with NBC-Universal & Fox). Have not kept close track of which Big Media Conglomerates own which streaming services.

Am with Vincent D'Onofrio on this one, sad to see perfectly functional shows get canned, casts & crews out of jobs & scattering to the winds. All while pissing off fans of the Marvel Netflix shows. For a maybe someday they will reboot series someplace else. Stupid if you ask me.

Gisney has no appealing shows other than Marvel so gl with that streaming service

Count Jerkula said...

Disney is pretty much banking their future on their coming streaming service. They saw the writing on the wall w/ cord cutters as their ESPN cash cow was hemorrhaging subscribers at rates up to 200k/month.

They bought BAM Tech from MLB ( the platform/tech that MLB & WWE stream on) and FOX studios/library specifically for this. Expect tons of Marvel & Star Wars shows in the years after the service launches.

I think the future will have people rotating services. Get a service for 3-4 months, binge watching exclusive shows you like and sifting through their movies, before switching to the next one. The commercial free environment is going to make product placement invasive.

Netflix and Marvel obviously. I'm going to miss the shows the way they were.

NicQuerica said...

Roku is already packaging the channels, no?

NicQuerica said...

Netflix is making a terrible mistake and it's goimg to bite the company in the ass hard.
