Paramount Plus coming to the uk at the end of June, for £6.99 a month.. So... no Strange New World for a month or so.. Linkage

These companies are fracturing the tv market even further... Every single subscription service is losing viewers including Amazon, Disney+ etc.. It'll all end in tears.

Totally agree.
.. though in this case, I'm rarely watching much of anything on Netflix other than sci-fi stuff. Might be a good idea to chop out Netflix and switch to just Paramount Plus.

Are you sure you want to give up Netflix? - https://www.gamesradar.com/sonic-prime-first-look-netflix/

Can't possibly be as much fun as Sonic Boom was!

I saw a post on the reddit main feed, where they showed a picture of pirates raising their flags. The topic mentioning the streaming situation.

This month that new Stranger Things series follow up wil start. I am 100% going to watch it. So Netflix is still relevant to me.

I got Prime, which sometimes has a good movie or doc. The lord of the rings show might be good there? My Hbo Max has the new Batman.

But Youtube has the most views here. I even started thinking about paying to have the adds removed from the television/web.

Finally arriving far too late, Paramount Plus is now available in the UK.
Strange New Worlds is "available", but only up to episode 3, so we're still lagging behind for reasons that I honestly cannot fathom.

There's a couple of South Park 1-hour episodes on there. "South Park : Post Covid"
There's a whole bunch of movies, but none of them have commentaries or extras, so .. *shrugs*
And for some inexplicable reason if you click "Browse", it claims "Sorry, this content is unavailable right now", so that's useful..

There's 3 episodes of the Halo show available, Star Trek Prodigy, all of South Park,
Dexter is in, as is the Dexter New Blood series.
Twin Peaks : The Return is here, but Twin Peaks isn't!

There's a Nickelodeon section which is kinda oddly lacking in some shows.
Rugrats is there. Sabrina isn't. SpongeBob is, Ren and Stimpy's not. Turtles in, Rocko out.
It's a very odd selection, if I'm honest. Again, Paramount (I presume) owns all this shit, why is it lacking so much?!

Movie wise, there's a bunch of old movies, but I'm not seeing anything too new. The Sonic movie is one that springs to mind. Obviously they wouldn't have Sonic 2 yet, but Sonic 1 isn't here, either.
So.. um..
Yeah, not all that much content here, if I'm honest.

If you're on iOS, you can download it, and sign up for the free week, then head straight into iCloud Subscriptions and disable the subscription so you get a week without any worries.

.. Maybe wait until all of Strange New Worlds is available, then watch 'em all within your free week.

£7 a month doesn't sound great value then?!

Is star trek discovery on there?

TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise, Disco, Prodigy, Strange New Worlds, but no Lower Decks or Picard (presumably because Amazon have those..?)
Movies 1,2,3,4 (The one with the whales), 5,6, Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis, but nothing from the Kelvin timeline.

Paramount Plus eats battery like you wouldn't believe, especially the menu system.

I've now watched the three episodes of Strange New Worlds, and.. yeah, it's been good so far. Enjoying it.
I'm also still enjoying Prodigy. The visuals in episode 3 are very No Man's Sky!!

Just watched the first episode of Halo.
Wasn't really sure where that was going, and was starting to drift off a bit, halfway through..
Then it went off in a different direction.
I'm going back for episode two!!

From the brief reviews I've read, Halo is like Marmite. Some love it, some don't. It does apparently get better...

Enjoyed first 3 episodes of Halo. But the rest of Paramount+ is pretty underwhelming right now. Don't think I'll subscribe past the free days and just wait until more content is available.

I remember long ago that they said that Steven Spielberg was involved with Halo.

Halo : I struggled through episode 7, and then gave up midway through episode 8
Plod, plod, plod, plod, plod, snooze

Strange New Worlds, on the other hand. Oooh, yeah.

Last episode of Strange New Worlds, and... yes, that was good Trek!!
Get on it, if you haven't already.
That's the best Trek I've seen since Orville!!!

I've upto episode 4 od ST:SNW I think. Yeah, gotta get back to that.

Started and slowly finished Kenobi. Yeahhhhhmehhhh... Definitely not required viewing.

Watched all of Stranger Things 4 eventually. I say eventually as it took a few weeks to starrt them, but then binge watched them over three night shifts. The series is still awesome.

Watched -

- LightYear - that was really good. Much better than I was expecting. Some very touching scenes in there.

- The Lost City (with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum). Yeah... Nope. Watchable, but nowhere near as good or funny as it thinks it is.

- Prey. Better than the last couple of Predator films. But that;s not really saying much. It lacked everything that made the first two movies so good, including a threatening hunter. The original predators had mucho gravitas and were definitely larger than life - this one just looks like a tallish man in a suit, which dun-dun-derrrrrr it is. Watchable. but lots of very illogical silly bits. More than you'd expect, anyway.

I watched the first two episodes of "The Man Who Fell to Earth" last night on Paramount Plus +
Started well, but I'm incredibly worried that, being helmed by the same Alex Kurtzman who's pissed all over recent Trek, that it might end up with a shockingly crap Series Arc that falls apart in episode 5 but get dragged out to the end...
...
I hope not, though, 'cos it's been fun so far.
