    Tip: Hold off on renewing immediately. I just did, and my All Access Pass is now scheduled to expire a year from today, rather than a year from when it was originally going to expire

    I honestly have never trusted anything in the app, from what I can tell, if you pay the full amount, it only lasts for about 30 days of streaming, then you have to pay again to re-up? I don’t want a recurring payment for access to 20 year old content, I just want a one time payment.

    Darren, do you have any information regarding a facelift of the site itself? The whole thing is just horrible to use.

    I just can’t get passed this particular bit:

    “Current All-Access subscribers will be offered a special package as an incentive to renew before October 20. The “Founding Member Pack” includes some special perks, including three additional months of service (15 months in total) and a “S.G.C. Founding Member” patch.”

    They deliberately kept the all-access access to 6 countries, blocking access to their “exclusive” content to everyone else, and now they even have the audacity to again give them more than everyone else?

    THEY BLOCKED FANS FROM ALL BUT 6 COUNTRIES!!!!

    They should be giving in an incentive to those blocked countries instead of the ones they already allowed access.
    Gives us a reason to believe that you’re not just “working on it” or “we’re looking into it”.

    This is, by far, the worst marketing I’ve ever come across.

    Sidenote: that merchandise shop is 20 years too late by the way.

    I also would be interested to see Ireland on the list.

    They really need to come up with a better PR person. This is just so much gobbledygook. Anyhow, I will “re-up” because I would like to do a full re-watch of SG-1. I wish they would make the app available on Amazon, or another platform so I could watch it on my TV not my computer. Call me old school, but that’s where I like to watch…well — er…. TV.

    @Mollymouse

    the content is on Hulu but not a part of the SG Command All Access Deal.

    That being said, until they figure something out, if you’re accessing the site on your laptop, use your video out port on your laptop and hook it up to your TV & set the display to extend to a second monitor. Have the browser fo the video play full screen in the second monitor & make that the video for the TV.

    That way you can watch the videos on your TV and still have access to your laptop. You’ll be tied to your TV while you’ll watching but it’s better than nothing. You can also use a phone & tablet to do this but you’ll need the specific adapter for this.

    I hope that they won’t release another Origins story. It was dull, yes it had Stargate but other than that, was pretty forgettable. Make either a completely new series with new actors, story that is based more on the history of the ancients , galactic conflicts and that will lead bag to Destiny. From there you can make 3 shows, SG-1 again, SGA again and SGU again. However I doubt that they will invest money in making it possible.

    Heightmeyer’s Lemming,

    Though I don’t work for MGM in anyway, I have worked with content availability for other networks and studios on other projects. I would hazard a guess the reason why content was limited to six countries had to do with contracts and licenses. It usually is a crazy mess of spider webs when it comes to international licensing and it can be difficult at best to release content to different markets. That mess is complicated more when content is/was available via standard television and streaming devices together. There are television shows that can be streamed in one country in addition to being broadcast and contractually limited to broadcast in others. Sometimes different entities own the same rights to a show in the same country; one for streaming, and one for broadcast. I would also guess that MGM and Stargate Command would readily offer content worldwide without hesitation Given the opportunity.

    @Jimmy
    I’m not unfamiliar with license and broadcast rules and regulations and whatnot, so I get that contracts have to be fulfilled but that doesn’t mean you can’t outright come out and say so. It doesn’t have to have grand details, just say we’re having contracts in place that need resolving. I literally take no issue with that explanation. I would have backed off immediately had they come out and be honest about it, instead they continue — since September 2017, I might add — the “we’re working on it” line, which has become their signature motto. It’s the same broken record they are once again dangling in front of everyone they have ignored the passed year. And that is just bad marketing — no matter how you look at it.

    @Darren
    I totally get that the series and the film are indeed under broadcast contracts. I literally do not doubt that, but does that extent to Dialing Home? The Mission Files? Stargate Origins? Everything new, that didn’t exist when those contracts were made? If it does, just say so. I’ll be disappointed for sure, but I’ll back off (or I would have backed off). Same as above.

    Don’t be deliberately vague, that will just get people crossed. And once that’s set as your signature reputation, you’re done for. You’re not getting it back and people will move passed and move on.

    Unless there is new live action content, based on existing continuity, why would anyone care about this???

    Why would anyone want to pay for this service? The first year’s content has been weak, at best. ORIGINS turned out to be pretty dire–poorly written, inconsistent with both SG-1 and the feature film, and very amateurishly acted. It’s not worth paying for more.

    Is it really that difficult to have a stand alone channel on Roku?
