Plus, Disney saw an opportunity with Covid quarantines. People who wouldn't pay to see a filmed version of a stage show in the cinema would watch the most talked about musical of the last decade on their TV.

no idea if it's driving new subscriptions but a *lot* of people are streaming Hamilton on that Plus today {nm} pickle rick! Jul 03, 18:32

I upped my Hulu subscription to the package for this. {nm} dsbman Jul 03, 18:36

WB should see if they can stream Harry Potter & the Cursed Child someday {nm} tealfan Jul 04, 00:28

ideally before JKR alienates the entire fanbase {nm} pickle rick! Jul 04, 01:12

Between her stances on Twitter, Fantastic Beasts 2, and what I know about Cursed Child, is there anyone she hasn't ticked off yet? {nm} HurricaneKid Jul 04, 07:09

depending how things break the rest of the year, arguably the front runner for Best Picture at the moment {nm} pickle rick! Jul 04, 07:27

Ahhh... {nm} RogerMore Jul 04, 12:03

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good RogerMore deep analysis. But most times I just deserve an “ah”. {nm} islndr Jul 04, 12:55

I see what you're doing here. :) {nm} CSBD Jul 04, 08:50
