“Copyright” protects your wording, to the extent that it is an original creative work. It doesn’t protect the information you have just shared on a public website. Anyone can repeat the information you’ve posted here wherever they like and you have no remedy in law to stop them.

You obviously don’t have a clue what copyright is, or about copyright law, so yes, sticking copyright notices on your posts in bold type makes you look daft. As does pretending you’re a “we”, but that’s another issue entirely.

They need to get their pricing down.
It's not the same content though is it. As someone pointed out above, Disney goes for a certain stream of the audience, albeit a large one.

Different services with different content will be worth different amounts to different people.

So true, I have pretty sure I have made this comment in the past and been shot down in flames!

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

With Netflix shares slipping 3.3% so far today I don't think the market is too enthusiastic about the results vs expectations.

Shelling out billions more in content to make marginal gains in North America but more significant gains in Latin America/Asia Pacific is a classic example of the law of diminishing returns.

Chris whether you think this or not i'm not sure why it annoys you so much? Media boy is an excellent poster and if he wants to say "copyright" due to a belief it'll stop his post being put elsewhere does that really impact the rest of us?

Also as a member of the cable forum team is it really appropriate to send this message ans call someone "daft"?

Now to get my post back on track. What are the odds of the next big streaming service coming to virgin media? Disney? Now tv? WWE network? Or any other?

Really? Have you never read any of Mick or Paul’s posts on here?

Believe me if I’d wanted to put the boot in, “daft” is not the word I’d have used. And yes, occasional comments about the accuracy of people’s posts is fair game, whether made by team or otherwise, as long as it doesn’t derail the thread. Claims of copyright over anything posted on a public web forum are dubious in the extreme. It does no harm to say so, and may help prevent users embarrassing themselves elsewhere.

On which note.

You are posting news or information that is freely available online. You adding that word means nothing, so yes it is daft. The same way you use the term us, when in fact it is just you, a singular person.

Britbox yes, Disney+ yes, WWE network no idea but doubtful, nowtv no chance. Peacock no as it's not launching in uk.
