I think you'll find Disney+ content will be universally available that is why the relase is delayed in the UK and elsewhere.

ESPN and Hulu will, at outset certainly, not be available with Disney+ here or offer the same range of compelling content as in the USA.

I’m perplexed with the difficulty you have with this, MM explained it and the rationale with crystal clarity. Indeed, on a number of occasions now.

I have no difficulty annd have checked MM's posts going back to end of August and have found no reference to unavailable content fo UK Disney+ customers or US customers.

That the Hulu, ESPN bundle is not available in the UK has no bearing on Disney+ customers.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I couldn’t care less about ESPN. I’ll get Disney+ just because of the Marvel and Lucasfilm content, and because there will also be stuff that appeals to my kids.

A bundle that isn’t available in one country so “has no bearing” when comparing like for like products. That’s a ludicrous assertion and you know it.

No its not as I'm asserting that a Diney+ customer in the UK will get the same content as a Disney plus customer in the US. Both come as stand alone services so can be compared like for like.

That’s like comparing Virgin’s standalone broadband pricing against all other broadband products “like for like” ignoring that almost nobody pays it because of far more attractive bundles.

UKTV is wholly owned by the BBC, whereas Britbox is 90% owned by ITV. I don't think that the BBC, having recently agreed to pay Discovery £173m in order to take over these channels are going to give up quite so easily.

That's 100% correct and the BBC have confirmed it.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Britbox - sounds right up my street, we always did make the best TV. ( will they have Blake's 7 is the big question? )

Netflix - I seem to have survived without it.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Blake’s 7 DVD rips have been on YouTube for years and nobody seems bothered about taking them down. They’re even organised in a handy playlist ... all 52 episodes. The BBC sold the rights years ago to a company part-owned by Paul Darrow, which long aspired to either reboot or continue the series, but it never got off the ground. Yet it’s BBC Worldwide that’s the distributor of the original material. They have apparently reissued the DVDs in a commemorative 40th anniversary package which might be what kept the show off the streaming services. So who knows whether it’ll ever appear online officially, but who cares, because it’s all there for free ... I think I’ve watched the whole thing through maybe three times over the last few years.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Inappropriate classic UK TV shows to be kept off Britbox service.

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-r...box=1573321143

Quote:
The new £5.99-a-month service, which will also offer shows from Channel 4 and Channel 5, is aiming to compete with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video by positioning itself as the home of the widest library of British shows, old and new.
Surely grown adults themselves can make up their own mind as to whether they want to see this content or not.

Looks like you might be right, pip.

Hulu will be offered internationally following Disney's purchase of Fox.
