Interesting. Hotstar might legit be the best VFM streaming service if thats the case. Its already up there.

Actually Sony liv isn't bad, for around 300 a year it's got quite a bit of content. I subbed for India - WI series, but it has ashes, and lot of stuff for TV shows.

Sounds too good to true especially the Offline mode and unlimited devices. Weekly release is good as long as each episode is independent story in itself which at the end culminates into one story. Also weekly releases should be at least 45 mins. 25 mins feels too short for a week 's wait. 

Really excited though about disney+ service. So everything Disney has will on the service right like old shows and stuff?

It is official. 

 

A first look at Disney+

  • For starters, Disney has confirmed the service will have more than 500 feature films and over 7,500 show episodes at launch
  • Disney announced Disney+ will have apps for iOS, Apple TV, Android and Xbox One, along with previously known devices such as the PlayStation 4 and Roku
  • The service will launch with up to seven user profiles per account
  • The Disney+ mobile app, meanwhile, will support offline downloads. Disney says the number of shows and movies you can download is unlimited, so the only restriction is the amount of free storage you have on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Disney+ will stream content in 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos -- which is included with the standard $6.99 plan

will they offer the same quality via hotstar in India?

 

Nope; there's a trade-off always in between Hotstar's Rs 999/annum (US$ 13.97) and Disney+'s Rs 5000/annum (US$ 70).

 

But don't worry, if you're T.V. is 4k and has a good upscaler, then the image will btill be excellent.

 

Not to mention Hotstar has far more crazy good value than Disney+ considering it has entire HBO's catalogue, HOOQ's catalogue and other stuff that Disney+ will not have.

 

Overall we are qiite lucky to have service like Hotstar here to combine almost all TV shows, unlike US where you would require different sub for everything.

This so much. Plus Tennis,F1,Football and Cricket. Hotstar is total value for money.

All I want from Disney+ is IMAX versions of all the movies made USING IMAX cameras no BS Blackborder sh*t and Dolby Vision.  Avengers infinity war and endgame will look gorgeous full screen with DV.

If Disney+ will be available for Hotstar then i guess will have to take their annual membership.
Recently took Sony Liv annual membership primarily for Ashes and India Windies matches.
Now, we watch stuff on Netflix, Prime Video, Voot, Jio Cinema, Sony Liv. If my parents didn't need Tata sky would have long gotten rid of their expensive plans. Hopefully Jio Stb starting next month will provide a solution for that too.

I can honestly see my family switching from Netflix to Disney+ when it eventually comes here. Disney + fox catalog is huge plus I am assuming they'll have stuff from other production houses as well. 

 

If we go by US Standards - then no. Disney will only have Disney content. Separate sub for HBO if you want to watch stuff like Chernobyl etc. Separate sub for Amazon Prime (Far, Far more expensive than India - something like US$  100/Annum); Separate sub for Hulu, Separate Sub for Netflix etc. There might be more services I missed.

 

It's literally become like paying for separate channels over there. So you cannot "Switch Over" to anything. 4 different members of your family like 4 different shows - sub for 4 services.

 

Anyway you won't get a choice in India as Disney+ is not coming here at all. It's only Hotstar that we will get here.

 

BTW it's quite good in India - have cheap Prime and Hotstar sub and a Netflix sub (only expensive one) and you can watch almost all the shows.

Out now on Netflix.

 

Completed season 1 this afternoon. The Character arc, depiction of the entire mystery surrounding the forest, cinematography were really well done. The execution and linking up characters equally well executed. The way the Amazonian terrain has been captured, beautiful! But there are problems with the pacing and the last couple of episodes are very unsatisfying I felt. This is a slow burner, I didn't mind that... I like slow burning shows with good, well poised character developments but the ending I felt on this was very obscure and weird.

Juana del Rio was superb in her role.

I finished it last night too. And what a damp squib of a show. None of the actors looked convincing, except maybe Kalki; the pacing was way off, the story completely passable, extremely weird episodic progression, and there was no sense of enigma, of discovery, or urgency in the show. Meh. Waste of time. 

Then again, I didn't like the first season either, so maybe I shouldn't have sucked up to the hype. 

 

I think they succumbed to trying to provide an overtly complicated presentation where it needn't have been. They needed guys who were great at managing non linear simultaneous progression. These guys, Kashyap and Ghaywan, are not good enough. 

 

Also, to me, Ganesh Gaitonde has not been a very compelling character. Maybe they should create an Isa spinoff. But not with these guys. They'd make a mess of it trying to show their "superior" film making prowess.
