Let’s get our petty complaints on! We have been locked inside for 6 months struggling with streaming, and I have THOUGHTS. And COMPLAINTS! And HATES!
Here they are, the three worst things I can think of about streaming. Only, I can’t decide which is Most Worst. You have to help me!
- Bad/not existent subtitles. We’ve all been there, the movie is in theaters with subtitles. It’s available legally on streaming on a pay service. And yet, somehow, in the translation between theater and streaming, the subtitles have just disappeared! Or, alternatively, gotten much much worse! WHY??? HOW???
- Missing scenes. There is a complete version of the film, it’s on DVD, sometimes it’s even on a janky no-subtitle version elsewhere online. And yet, the official version I am paying for is missing whole scenes of the film! Not because of censorship, just because of laziness. They couldn’t be bothered to track down a complete version of the film. WHY??? WHY WOULDN’T YOU???
- Rights Purchased But Not Available. The Zee5 syndrome. Someone bought up the rights to a whole bunch of content, and then wasn’t ready to launch their platform, so the content is locked in a weird invisible limbo.
Okay, which of these is WORSE? Are you stumped like me, or can you pick one?
