I think they did it to signify Spider-Man coming "Home" to Marvel Studios finally. Though I agree it's a bit heavy handed.

Purpose of these post, just to show how much IPTV quality difference there can be between providers for the same titles.
IPTV is different to Streaming from Providers, a STB is needed for IPTV.

What ARE you talking about?

Neither of my TVs require a "set top box" (STB) to watch IPTV.

The post he was replying to wasn't even about IPTV; it was about the differences in quality between various streaming services when watching the exact same title.

Another point made, but missed by a mile.

Thanks. It is nice to have confirmation that some folks may appreciate the time, effort and expense some put in order to post test results here.

These all boil down to "bring home the bacon."

Spider-man is so popular that the title doesn't matter. Spider-man "home schools" us on that fact.

I want a Spider-man western next and it should be called "Spider-man Home On the Range."

Internet has been out for two days. The guy was supposed to come yesterday from noon to two but did not and is supposed to show up today some time between noon and four.


Physical media and phones are a pretty big perk in this
Scenario waiting for the guy to show up.

...only for him to blame your personally owned modem for the problem. That's what my ISP always tries to pull when I call in.

Have the Spider-Man Trilogy and The Amazing Spider-Man 3D. Watched most of the others but passed on purchase, No Way Home got ejected after about 25 minutes.

I have upgraded all of the Spidey movies that I know of to 4K. He feels at home on the format.

It's ALWAYS their problem.

I have NEVER had a modem, or a router for that matter, fail. It doesn't stop them from trying to pin the blame on my stuff, tho. I don't know if its because my ISP employs half-wits, sloths, or half-witted sloths, but I always have to play this game first before they will get off their asses and do anything.

I absolutely agree. Holland is my favorite Spider-Man and I've enjoyed all his Marvel movies.
