    With streaming services popping up rapidly (fukkin BET is creating one :mjlol:), what does network and cable look like in the future?

    Will Tv only feature sports? Reality shows?

    And what about cinema? Will theaters slowly close? :jbhmm:

    I think only think like 10-20% of the streaming platforms that come out will survive. Cable will be around cheaper but based on the new competition and movie theaters will be reserved for blockbuster high FX films or films aimed at kids. You might have an art house theater here and there in college towns and major cities.

    theaters will be like restaurants. only super cheap or upscale joints will survive

    all them amc joints will die off slowly. it will be 3$ cheap theaters that play movies 2 months after they come out and expensive 30 dollar a ticket spots that serve food and alcohol in recliner seats

    My woman and I went to one of them regular movie theaters back in July

    Had me like :dwillhuh:

    I have truly been spoiled by upscale movie theaters with reclining and vibrating chairs

    Cause the whole time I was in this place I was :scust:

    I wanted to leave so bad. Worst part is that it was my idea. :snoop: in my defense, I didn't know it was gonna be THAT bad

    Movie theatres are still packed. The last two movies I saw - Lion King and Hobbs & Shaw - were watched a month after their release, and it was still full in there.

    shyt will crash...at some point they will realize people ain’t subscribing to all that shyt at $9-20/month for one show here and one show there.

    That doesn’t even take into account the craziness that news sites have done with their paywalls, then of course most people subscribe to some music services...then all the monthly health and beauty subscription offering too...FOH with all this

    Seems like they are only creating these services to trick people into signing back up for cable.

    I really don't get the point discount theaters in the streaming era. The movies they get are already on streaming/vod by the time they play them

    Discount Tuesdays are still a great deal. Just need better quality films throughout the year IMO.
