Also, some people are being forced to stay home with an out-of-date gaming system, or a PC that isn't really able to run the most current games available for download on Steam. Microsoft, Sony, and other companies that build those should waive those purchase prices for new systems during the pandemic in order to ensure the mental well-being of people stuck at home. On top of that, downloading those games (and using Hulu, Netflix, etc.) requires an internet connection, which some greedy pig companies like Comcast and others are still actually charging for. Those fees should be waived IMMEDIATELY so that people can be comfortable. Some people are getting through this crisis by doing renovation projects, yet stores like Home Depot and Lowe's are still showing the unmitigated gall of CHARGING for things like paint, lumber, drywall, etc. Is it time for a lawsuit? I think it might be.

You know what else would keep people at home? A functioning stimulus check system to get cash to citizens ASAP so they don't need to go out. But we needed to delay to get Trump's name on the checks. Sure they only said a few days, and yet, seeing a lot of people report they input their direct deposit information the first few says but now have the IRS site saying they will get a check. How odd.

My quarantine lawnmower is getting pretty old. I sure would like a top of the line John Deer.

I'd like free food. Some free TP would be great. I'd also like free utilities. While you're at it, free internet access.

I'm using more of these since I'm at home, so they should all be free. What? The world doesn't work that way? Even the socialist world doesn't work that way?

I'm sure all the performers and others involved in those entertainment productions will be pleased when their royalty and reuse payments end prematurely.

lol... good luck with that.

The libraries are closed and while they have e-books available, their selection is woefully lacking compared to the real books we can't get to now. I demand that Amazon give away all of their e-books.

No way I can get behind this. Their usage is surging worldwide due to shelter in place orders around the world, and they have to pay for all that bandwidth. Demanding they give you service for free while paying for the massive bandwidth everyone's been using with no income is not only stupid, it actually poses a threat to Netflix's ability to operate
 
2020-04-23 12:58:26 PM  
Netflix doesn't own you anything. fark off. You should have kept all those dvds and vhs tapes you sold to buy a carton of Winstons.

This.
And also.
With a Universal basic income, for all. You can pay that, or get a part time job for that. Or hook.

This is obviously a plot by Russia and/or China to bring America's internet to its knees when literally the entire country suddenly finds it can stream anything it wants from any service for free.

Plenty of providers such as HBO Now, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+ and Netflix have been offering up their original titles for free during the epidemic
 
2020-04-23 1:01:06 PM  
If you can seriously no longer afford Netflix, it is a self-correcting problem, as you will soon be living in a cardboard box. I'd suggest we have far more serious issues to address at the moment.

Yes.
But, also.
Why don't users or any service, not just Netflix, but any random service just buy it and run it like they want?
Because Jesus Christ, Facebook could use that. And Jesus Christ, so could Narcos Cartel Wars. The owners of both are damn idiots
 
2020-04-23 1:03:42 PM  
It would make more sense for Verizon, Comcast and the ISPs to stop charging for internet as that's more expensive, would help public school kids who can't affod internet do distance learning, and they have extra billions sitting around...but that would make sense so people don't want to do it.

What's the difference.
Twice I've been gifted that. It expires and I'm not seeing a difference?
Maybe TF should come with a week auto green light? That would most definitely make me pay up 15 for that! Seriously

Considering how necessary ISP is right now, not going to happen.

I use Pluto for background noise but my most used channels are Bloomberg Business, Antiques Roadshow, Rifftrax and MST3K.  It is a pretty damn good service if you like niche things and dont mind it not being on demand. The ads arent even to intrusive. And yeah...all free.

My siblings use my netlix and amazon. I get HBO from my brother and Disney Plus from my sister though. It all kinda evens out. I keep waiting for one of them to get Hulu though and neither will bite. The accounts have screen limits. The only one that ever comes up being busy is Netflix. I'm only paying for two screens. The other ones have max 3 screens, so the odds of finding those busy have been low. And I'm not even sure that we'd been signing on Netflix at the same time either. I had to change the password the other day after getting an email from Netflix about a strange IP from Sao Paulo logging into my account. I'm down with sharing with my siblings and nieces and nephews but one brazillion is just way too many people sharing a Netflix account.

And yet I can't find videos that teach people how to pronounce new.

It doesn't help that I need something very specific.
It needs to be both audio and visual.
And it needs to brake up the words by syllable.
Like Constitution
Con sti tution
See I don't even know the syllables of Constitution

Yeah... no. I'm happy to pay for my Netflix and Hulu accounts, and my Amazon Prime membership, and will continue to do so because they're not "essential services" even though I find them invaluable.

Seriously, I don't farking understand some folks. The priorities are all over the farking map.

I blame free phones.
Cell service providers should have never done that b.s.
I'd like not got a cell till 2000 .
Which might have been a good thing.
I got a pair of cell phones in 1995 and had to go to Las Vegas.
I didn't want to leave my girlfriend here and she didn't want to go.
So I gave her one of the cells.
OMG that was so stupid.
The bill came out something way over 1000$.
Which SWBell is still trying to get me to pay.
