A Little Entertainment

I have been reading a few posts from various investment  managers about how Disney has been ramping up for a distribution model for their movies on line and how that will improve their value. Came across this article this morning and felt it is worth sharing, gives us some perspective about the new service. As a Netflix subscriber, I can see this playing out, check it out.

Why Families Will Ditch Netflix By 2020

Having too many streaming services just won't be practical anymore.

On Tuesday, the highly-anticipated streaming service Disney+ revealed a new streaming bundle consisting of  Disney+, Hulu and ESPN. This will cost $12.99 a month, which is the exact same price as the standard HD two-screen plan for Netflix right now. Right there, families who are planning on getting Disney+ can do the math. With Disney+ you get the entire vault of Disney animated movies streaming, plus a smattering of Marvel movies, Star Wars movies, and yeah, that new Star Wars TV show — The Mandalorian — that starts streaming on November 12. (This show is being run by Jon Favreau by the way, you know the guy who directed the first Iron Man? Anyway, I digress. You get it. This streaming service is big.)

Second Harvest

I had a nice little article writing about this and some how it didn’t save in time and I am running out of time, snows coming as they say in the fall harvest mode. So just the links and a few pics . Be sure and watch the video link. I like the reusable bags that Purolator uses. Good branding, reusable.
