That's cool, I haven't seen the show yet. Now I will.
Yay, one fewer tv show in my queue. Maybe eventually I can eliminate my extra queue... I keep a separate queue for tv shows so that they don't block movies.
Sweet!!! Season 1 disk 4 should be in my mailbox today. I can finish S1 on disk and then wait 'til July to stream the rest. The whopping 2 days between disks makes watching TV series difficult for some reason.
According to the article I read, they are the exclusive source (other than physical media) for Mad Man Seasons 1-4, and future seasons after each one ends. IOW, the reruns won't be airing on any broadcast or cable network during this contract, and won't be streaming at any other streaming service.
Why? If you were watching first-run, there'd be a week between each episode...
Do the DVDs have commentaries or other extras? If so, whenever I start this series, I'll likely still get the DVDs.. (or watch via streaming AND get the DVDs).
I don't think they can keep licensing content at $100 million a show here and there in the long run. They have a similar arrangement for all of the 5 Star Trek shows, although this one seems to be bundled into a $200 mio CBS/Viacom deal.
I do have to wonder how long they can keep making these deals without raising prices. The problem, of course, is that they can't raise prices too much without driving away customers. And if they started charging for streaming separately, they might find that many of their current customers just aren't interested enough to pay for both services.
Of course if they got to the point of truly rivaling cable for fresh content, things might be different. But I don't see how they can get there without a painful transition period in where they're neither one ("free streaming, bonus!") nor the other ("streaming is our primary service").
Yes, do it!!!
Today's the day!
Yay! I am putting that on the top of my queue now.
Is it streaming in HD? I gave the pilot of Mad Men a shot, but since AMC is not HD on DirecTV, and the pilot to me was kind of slow and boring, I gave up. I've become such and HD snob. If it's in HD streaming, might try it again. DD 5.1 shouldn't be that important for a show like this.
I watched the first couple episodes of this series and found it pretty boring. With it on streaming, maybe I'll give it a second chance. I need to finish watching a couple hundred hours of Star Trek first.
Well, now we know!
Added to my Instant Queue ... will see if I get to it before (if) I end up cancelling.
Was season 1 not shot in HD? Because season 1 isn't tagged in HD while seasons 2-4 are?
Last night I watched S2E1 and it was in HD.
I watched Season 1 on blu-rays and it was in HD. I don't know why they wouldn't be streaming it in HD.
I had Season 4, Disc 2 on my way to me in the mail when it became available via streaming. I just finished the disc. Three episodes left. Will finish it off via disc. Looks great on BluRay.
