I would prefer Criterion because I believe they would add new extras. Thanks in advance...
I'm not in the industry, just someone who sees and buys a lot of movies . At least you can see "Freaks" in HD from most of the major streaming services (and it does look decent in HD). The one sought-after Warner title not on BD, not even on DVD, and only available to steam in SD, is the silent classic "Greed."

Obviously this was disappointing news to begin with, but this business move just bothers me the more I think about it.

AT&T just recently acquired TimeWarner, I think. So this is just a massive corporation absorbing into another one and closing an extremely valuable service - in the cultural and educational sense - because there's not enough money to be made.

I can understand that a faceless corporation doesn't entirely "owe" us anything, to a degree. With the juxtaposition of their vast amounts of cash and the public service that this service provides though, I truly do think it's just common decency that TimeWarner should keep this service going for another year. Although, there's no telling what their new, vaguely-described, streaming service will involve in a year, I can't help but be pessimistic about it carrying over so much of this archive.

Meanwhile, DC Universe streaming is up and going and it's cool that it provides its own value to that audience. I subscribed for a month but now I'm resolute in not taking it any further than that. It's just kind of awful and loathsome that it feels like they're opening up a comic book store while shutting down a library.

You're forgetting that in a democracy, people ought to have a say... yes, even when it arguably may have an impact on a company's bottom line.

If we had a Congress that cared about cultural issues, like film preservation and access to the film libraries that exist, they could do something about it... make it so that the public would have some kind of access, to the extent that is technologically possible, to the cultural assets owned by big companies.

There's no reason such a law couldn't exist, except... that most congresspeople are beholden to Big Money, of course.

In a slightly different type of society, people could put enough pressure on their legislators so that they enacted laws for the public benefit, even if it made humongous conglomerates slightly less profitable...

If WM is making that fancy new service next year, DC maybe gone, too. Iím sure their original shows will be headed there.
