    I want to watch it, but I also want to tell Disney to **** off after ruining the franchise.

    Decisions, decisions......

    Oh for ****s sake! Everyone trying to milk the consumer for every last dollar.

    Between the news that Disney is launching a streaming service and putting this show on it, and the fight between Amazon and Google where I can't get YouTube TV on my Firestick because these greedy bastards are fighting over my last nickel, I've had it. I'm moving to a ranch in Montana and barricading myself in. I'll live off the land and go off the grid. LOL

    Star Wars franchise is dead to me each movie got worse then the last. I haven't seen Solo and won't see Rise of Skywalker.

    I have Netflix and Amazon Prime currently. I'd like to watch the new Star Trek series "Discovery" but I refuse to subscribe to yet another streaming service (CBS All Access) and I'll be damned if I subscribe to Disney's streaming service just to watch Mandalorian either.

    Disney and Foxsports North duking it out and I get no Twins games :mad:

    TV content and providers going the same way online forums went, into a million smaller and smaller pieces of pie.

    Exactly. These streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) want to get your money just as much as the cable company. They now nickel and dime you to death. I had a summer watch list I created of movies I wanted to watch. I currently subscribe to Netflix, Hulu and we have Prime. I had 12 movies on my list and I only got to watch 1 because the rest were not a part of my subscription. The streaming services are now "tiering" subscriptions and milking you for more money. More content is only being offered with premium subscriptions, not the $5-$12 subscriptions us "poor" folks have. Not only that, as you mentioned, all these other services are popping up that you have to pay for, like CBS All Access. They are slowly (actually quickly) creating an environment where streaming services will cost as much, if not more, than regular cable (if you can believe that). Meanwhile, the cable companies are protecting themselves from cord-cutters by jacking up the price for decent internet connection speeds (if you're gonna stream, be prepared to pay a ransom for a decent internet speed). Disgusting.

    I have to subscribe to CBS All-Access. I don't have the will power to NOT watch Picard. But once that's over, I'll cancel that shit.

    Sounds like ya'll need to invest in a good VPN and just download this stuff.

    It's really the content producers that are driving this. 15 years ago they gave out licenses like candy because the money was still in Cable and DVD sales. They see the folly of this.

    Disney owns Marvel and Starwars and has a massive catalog, you can expect them to yank everything from the others once their own is live.

    All the cable networks want their own new source of revenue, etc.

    Does it even matter? How many series have ya'll watched that ever came to a satisfactory end? Everything thing gets milked and destroyed anymore.

    It will be trash. Just like all the other Star Treks from this century.

    Thought this was a joke, but I've got an idea. How about "Millennial Falcon" - the story of two twenty-somethings living in the basement of their neighboring parents house. These self-entitled rascals sleep by day, drink White Claw by the six pack, and attend antifa rallies wearing Han and Chewbacca disguises.....

    I'm willing to spend a few bucks to find out. I have a hard time believing Patrick Stewart will let it be trash. If it is, so be it.

    Besides one bad Star Wars film, I’m not sure how Disney ruined it. Lucas ruined it with his prequels. Rogue Squadron was damned good and Solo was really good. Spin-offs are what a lot of us have always wanted and I’m excited for it.

    Greedy bastards are going to cut their own throats. Been digging Redbox lately. Streaming services are all about instant gratification, convenience, and betting we won’t get off our asses to do something.

    I’ve been boycotting Disney for years now. Ever since they fired their entire US IT team and outsourced all their jobs to India. Screw them. Here’s hoping they burn to the ground.

    I believe it has potential, not sure if I will ever watch it as I don't think I'll be getting the Disney streaming service.

    I rarely watch anything anymore.
