@Darren, what is your point regarding the subscription limits?

I mean, instead of the current 2 levels, there could be 3. The free, and two premium. One for people in the US, Germany and the other few countries, and one for all the countries outside of the current restriction. I understand why they can’t stream the old stuff to everyone, but we should still be able to access Origins and the Dialing Home series. Even for half the price, it would mean more money than nothing. They had months to make it work, and they did not.

@MichaelAC I don’t think profit is an issue here. I don’t know how many subscribers they have (@Darren, any info?), but I think it’s only enough to cover the costs of Origins and the new web portal.

This is purely speculation, but… Read more »

And I will quote your comment on Reddit, with your permission, because many people still don’t want to see the big picture.

Of course. It’s my opinion, you have just reinforced it.

By the way, what do you think about Mr. Mallozzi’s recent campaign? Do you think it would be best to bring in the old team or hire someone else with a fresh mind? I think the old team could make wonders with some fresh blood in the writer’s room.
