    So when will there be packages available like cable?

    “$x.xx/month for Netflix, Disney and Crave. $5 extra for Peacock and Hustler.” That sort of thing.

    By the way that $5 add on is called “Cock Hustler”.

    Just FYI.

    Wait, Hustler has its own streaming service?

    Duke, WTF? Where's the thread about THAT?!?!

    BTW, Amazon already does this. You can plug HBO, Showtime, Starz, or whatever into your basic Prime subscription for an additional monthly fee.

    It isn't really "bundled," like cable, but you can pick and choose what you want under one umbrella service.

    I have a fetish for paying for it.

    Don’t kink shame me.

    I'll be okay with this if it hosts the Community movie.
    Last Five Films I've Seen (Out of 5)

    Maniac (Lustig, 1980) 4.5
    Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning (Steinmann, 1985) 2
    Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (Hedden, 1989) 3
    Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood (Buechler, 1988) 4
    Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance (Misumi, 1972) 4.5

    The last movie I saw in a theater before the apocalypse was Cats.

    Let that sink in.

    Launching April 15 on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 and Flex video platforms before a national launch on July 15.

    It will come in three versions:

    a free, ad-supported one;
    a more robust, ad-supported one that will be free to Comcast and Cox Cable subscribers,
    and $5 for everyone else

    I think the streaming bubble is going to pop sooner or later. Still I am a little curious.

    I'll probably try out the one that's free for Comcast subscribers.
