Probably Disney+, although the Star Wars stuff isn't my cup of tea.  :)

You must be a favorite of the classics or wanting a goblet full of Marvel. This may sound odd to some, but I'm actually more interested in "The Mandalorian" than I am "The Rise of Skywalker". As a Star Wars fan I'll be watching both.

Oh, I certainly don't want a goblet full of Marvel, lol.  ;)  I just know they'll be doing some live action remakes on there as well as some original fantasy, like Noelle.  That's what I'm there for.  :)

I like many of the live remakes too. I pretty much like all things Disney...including the 8 upcoming Marvel series. :)

Disney+, I am too committed to the MCU to let WandaVision go unwatched.   Also Disney nearly owns everything so who knows what shows/movies could be on the horizon.

I know, WandaVision looks really good along with Loki for me. Of course I'll probably watch all of them since many will be limited to 6 episodes.

Whoops. I have added it to the list, but I don't think I can modify the original post.

Simba, it's nice to see you back around! : )

'Good face-off. My vote would maybe go to Apple+ because I'd think they'd come up with something new but I feel like I couldn't go wrong with HBO: they were responsible for getting "Six Feet Under" and "Sopranos" and so many other innovations to air before anyone else really caught on so I'd imagine I wouldn't be disappointed.

Thanks, I'll try to hang out a bit more. I am interested in some of the Apple+ programs, but it's just not available on the platforms I use. I certainly like the content that HBO offers, but it's the most expensive of the four by far. Decisions, decisions...

I probably won't actually sign up for any of them (lol), I'm thinking about what ones I'll rent when the time comes.  :D

Disney +, unhappyly, but they are forcing me with the Marvel series :(, besides, I hope there are many classics, specially if they also add the Fox films.

I have never heard of Peacock and HBO and Apple tv + don't seem to have much content, and besides I rather classic films to new productions.

I would actually hope to stop having more streaming services and have access to everything in a single place, which was the original idea. And what people would actually like instead of having to pay more and more for less and less.

Disney is a beast. 10 million users signed up in one day. The content and interface are impressive.

I just read HBO is linked to Warner, so if they include the past films from Warner, including some forgotten titles then they might get my vote.

Content is King. Having Warner is very good. Disney has (and has bought) a lot of content. I wonder about Apple+ though.

Pencho... HBOMax will have the entire Turner Movie Classics library if that's what you're looking for.

This is just a thought: I'm wondering if using "House of Dragons" as the example might lead to a landslide for HBO Max in the votes just because "Game of Thrones" (annoyingly, lol) crushes everything in votes and that perhaps another example would level the playing field a bit. 

It's a great face-off either way.

I think that's a good idea. Unfortunately, "House of Dragons" is their only offering that has an image and the poll looks bad without one. "Flight Attendant", "Station Eleven", "Made for Love", and "Circe" don't have images. Is there any other HBO Max offering that does have an image that I could use? If not, I'd rather leave it and have the image.
