I think a chromecast feature is really needed and the app seems to be a yearly subscription as opposed to a once off fee as was first advertised.

It was never advertised as a once-off fee. There was always an end-date attached to it, which is clearly stated in the FAQ of Stargate Command (I’ve read every page of the website before it disappeared and got replaced with the current setting).

Will you be reviewing the quality of the video more in-depth? I’d really love to see some side-by-side material between the streams and DVD/Blu-Ray/Amazon HD (SGU Season 2) without any “well it depends on the strength of your WiFi and Chromecast support isn’t quite there yet” that is unrelated to the quality of the stream straight down the pipe to your modem; obviously if you have poor internet, you’re not going to have the best of times anyway, but if you’re nowhere near saturation, quality should be top notch… but is it?

I think they just killed stargate… because:
a) There are basically no legal way to stream stargate in most countries via online services,
b) Their new site just says: ‘We’re sorry, but there are no Series available for your location.’

Taking the show off Netflix and other platforms around the world is the biggest mistake they could ever make.
