Subject: See, Disney's plan was to swallow all their (and other) intellectual properties up (along with their merging other appetites like ABC, LUCASfilm, 20th Century Fox, etc) and offer that exclusive content in the not-so-far future, to have folks ONLY $ubscribe to their library for collective archive$. ...

Unlike other pay (channels) like HBO, TNT, etc, who offers many types of ALL programming, Disney+ will swallow all their OWNED content for only consumption at their table$.

...So Disney's initial subscriptions are now about $7/month now, but by 2030 expect to pay over 10X that. Original content is one thing, but since all these mergers, ONE company's "collective" archive is growing....and becoming exclusive.

And also, now along with other original streaming companies like NETFLIX and its "The Irishman" and "The Marriage" now even want their seat at the OSCAR table, by forcing their small screen offerings for consideration/eligibility by the Academy, instead of the EMMY society. For now they are beginning to buy theatres for initial big-screen viewings for a few weeks before mass internet consumption at later dates.

These are the salad days of 'free' YouTube browsing, folk, But I see in the coming decade through courts, these online offerings will trickle. So illegal piracy will compete, too. So, it seems it looks like it's likely going back to the 1970s pre-cable era of not being able to see old movies or old series, because we don't have the access...unless we pay their monopoly. 'MERICA!
