Considering they tried to bundle the low tier with Walmart's attempt at prime does it really surprise anyone?

Their streaming service is shiat.

About 5 minutes before the end of anything I watch, a "watch credits" or "next episode/movie" pops up. If I don't select "watch credits" within about 5 seconds, it cuts the end of the show off and I have to re-start and fast forward to watch the end. And of course, because the "watch credits" option pops up way too far in advance of the actual credits, that means I have to fast forward through credits every time instead of skipping.

And there's no way to turn off this broken "feature."

I'll be dropping the service after my free trial is up.

All of them seem to do something like that. Netflix rolls into the next episode. Many probably like that but many times I'm trying to confirm a special guest voice or actor. I jump on IMDb during the beginning of the next episode

The thing with Paramount+ is that it'll cut off with a significant amount of actual show still remaining. Like, its timing is WAY off. At least with the other streaming services it more or less doesn't kick in until the show's actually started running credits.

Yes, I definitely noticed this, especially with the 20-25 minute comedy shows where they'll show an extended scene or something in the credits, but cuts off right before the who knows when.

The basic functionality of their steaming pile of shiat service was so awful that the quality of the content had nothing to do with it. If you smear a Louis Vuitton shirt with dog shiat nobody's going to wear it.

Ohhh gotcha. I have a weird problem with Hulu where it rolls into an episode 2/3 in. Also, some of my recordings end 5 or 6 minutes early

Yeah, it's pretty bad. I gave up after the free trial.

You underestimate the gullibility of the fashion world.

They'll turn it around by creating ten more Star Trek shows.
