    Shows that aired in 4:3 originally should never be cropped for widescreen, period.

    Dragonball Z and the first 3 seasons of the X Files are some of the worst offenders.

    I disagree with X Files. It was very well done. Both should be available, however.

    If you want a truly bad example, look at Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

    They will also have a show about Hulk and She-Hulk that features Mark Ruffalo as well as a Monsters, Inc. spin-off show featuring Billy Crystal and John Goodman reprising their respective roles. Disney seems to be going all in on this. It seems like every day I'm hearing about yet another new show that'll be on Disney+.

    Seriously? Like, just last night I was wondering how they'd introduce She-Hulk in the movies and you're telling me there's a show? Cool.

    OK, so what's stopping Universal from partnering with Disney to make a Hulk movie? I don't know the specifics of the deal, something about solo movies, but I think that after seeing them work with Sony on Spider-Man that Universal would be amenable.

    from what i have experienced, they give you the option in the settings menu on the app for how you want to watch the older episodes (zoomed or 4:3 with pillar box)

    If this is aiming to be shown in 4K, then they might keep the old episodes at the original AR.

    Somewhat unrelated but I'm noticing that HBO is showing more and more films in their original AR, as opposed to pan-and-scan them like they've done forever. The whole argument about black bars is as antiquated as the old tube televisions that facilitated that point to begin with, and hopefully that's what HBO is getting hip to now.

    I'm of the (more extreme) opinion that changing the aspect ratio is destroying the director and/or cinematographer's original intent. Ultimately, you take what you're given with certain releases, especially for home media.

    I read a few articles that claim Disney (through ESPN+ and Hulu) plan to lose a little over $2 billion dollars this next year just to get this thing off the ground and be competitive with Netflix.

    Yeah, the $7/month price tag is just a loss leader.

    The price tag looks like a knockout punch in households where people have one or two services

    To be fair, their competitors have a lot of crap no one would watch if they weren't on Netflix or something else.
