@critical_kitcat I think there’s some disconnect from everybody here. Disney+ having the “simulcast” model is not respective to a traditional broadcast environment. I do think the instinct you have for stealing hype is there. [1]
@critical_kitcat It seems like a calculated decision to chose to do weekly for Mandalorian and new shows from here on out to over take the discourse online. They know what kind of environment they need to win for long-term hegemony over the streaming market to compete with Netflix and others [2]
@critical_kitcat They‘re counting on their brand name and grip on licensing to force their way into our lives and that market. The choice to do weekly is for maintaining our interests while giving us a value proposition. For most Disney consumers, just having one location to catalog is enough [3]
@critical_kitcat That alone may very well be enough for the long term. They know their usual base of consumers are of an upper middle class demographic all around the world. Just think about the global market here and how mindless consumerism happens with Disney every day for decades [4]
@critical_kitcat That base simply won’t due. Disney knows how lucrative streaming is and is trying to create their own private niche to milk it out as long as possible. They want to make it so that they don’t have to compete with Netflix. Why compete if you have your own internal economy? [5]
@critical_kitcat Overall, Disney+ is just an extra benefit that they don’t need. The entire platform is a cash cow when you contextualize that most hardcore Disney consumers around the world tune into TV ads advertising the latest 25th anniversary 4K Blu-ray disk of movies they already own [/end]
@critical_kitcat For the smaller tv shows on another note, they can still get attention. It is a matter of market segmentation and advertising to the right ppl. You’d want to start with media buffs and critics like us as well as the type that actually attend film festivals to get going
