So a LOT of people signed up for a 3 year contract with Disney+ at launch. If I'm counting correctly, I believe that comes to an end in... October? Any word on some kind of followup deal for the large numbers of subscribers whose contracts will run out at that time?

I've been thinking about this too. I signed up while at Dragon Con (September) - did it start right away, or the next November?

If I go to a D+ panel, I will restrain myself from asking them to let the US watch all of the Korean dramas they seem to be getting (they released one, but it's the one I don't want to watch LOL) - I guess I'm spoiled by Netflix and Viki as far as Kdrama availability.

Amazing what info you can get from looking it up in your account LOL. Thanks! That was the day it premiered wasn't it? Looking at the prices on the website - that is a $10 savings from the regular annual subscription. That's not too bad.

Has anyone been able to successfully merge their accounts between Disney + and Hulu? As a D+ Founder, it's not letting me do so (cause Hulu now includes D= and ESPN+).

I haven't tried that one

I've been battling with Vudu. Way back, when I created the acct. I used 'sign in with your walmart acct' (I know stupid). Periodically I am unable to use Vudu when they change the back end. I've asked it to be changed/merged/anything to get me out of the walmart acct, without loosing 1/2 my movies. No joy

one would think merging accts would be simple #grumble

Prey on Hulu....

Quote
From Fulton Shelter to Super Stardom!
Fulton County Animal Services was thrilled to find out that one of our former residents has hit the bigtime. Coco, who came into our care at the beginning of 2021, is the breakout star of one of this Summer's biggest movie hits, Prey.
The latest installment in the Predator franchise, Prey was released on streaming service Hulu last week to its highest ever premier ratings. Viewers were raving about the movie but attention quickly turned to the lead character's four legged companion and Coco has now taken the internet and movie world by storm. Fans are referring to her as "...the Meryl Streep of dogs" on twitter.
Coco who has no film training and was adopted by her family specifically for this project, plays Sarii. She was originally meant to have a small role however her popularity among test audiences encouraged director Dan Trachtenberg to include more of Coco in the film.
Actress Amber Midthunder described Coco "...as a little bit of a hot mess — but in a sweet way." on the press tour for the movie. And though she required a little extra patience and guidance on set, it was Coco's own joyful and playful personality that won the hearts of the cast and crew. And the response Coco is getting is proof that the extra care and patience paid off!
We are SO delighted that Coco found the life she has, and is now shining a light on the potential of shelter dogs and what they are capable of when given a chance.
Prey is available to stream on Hulu

Cinemark's site was hammered, but it was still functional, albeit slooooow. Managed to get my two favorite seats in the theatre.
