I will be well peed off if it's not the full length version of Aliens in 4k. Nothing else will do for me because to date my D+ subscription has been a waste of money.

'What If...?' looks fun.

I think Netflix is going to have up its game as Prime, Disney+ and ATV seems to be getting more of my viewing time. What If should be interesting I enjoyed the comics. StarGirl was surprisingly watchable and Batista vs Momoa should be fun - george

I'd be very surprised if it's in 4k. Disney seem to be quite happy to put most of their inherited content out in HD. I'm pretty sure James Cameron hasn't yet got around to overseeing 4k transfers of Aliens, the Abyss etc because he's making a million sequels to Avatar that nobody really wants. Having said that I really hope I'm wrong.
I agree with you about Disney+ in general - compared to Prime and Netflix they haven't put anywhere near enough content out there and next month the price goes up...

What if worth a look and will stay with star girl and I am still laughing at the thought of My Cousin Vinny a lawyer who was apparently a role model for Rudy Guiliani

My mistake, I thought Aliens had been released on 4k disc. Alien is available on 4k though so they should release that for a start.
It's time Cameron realised he will never top T2, Aliens, Abyss and True Lies. Avatar was OK but we hadn't really seen anything like it before and that made it so successful. It's not in the same class.

Clearly I’m odd as I thought StarGirl shouldn’t have got a second episode never mind season. It was so bad it made Batwoman look good!

Disney+ to me actually seems the one to have the best content but maybe that’s because as a relative newcomer there is still plenty to watch. Amazon doesn’t really count as a paid for streaming service for us as we’ve had prime delivery for so many years anyway. I stopped the Netflix subscription several months ago as we’d watched pretty much everything we were bothered about and their new content is always just the same things rehashed. How they can get away with the pricing structure they have is beyond me. I’d rather just wait a few months and buy the odd thing that they have that we like (e.g. Lucifer and Cobra Kai).

Is the final season of The Walking Dead an exclusive for Disney - i.e. is it scheduled to be broadcast on Sky/Now at any point?

And if not is this due to the Fox channel disappearing off Sky?

I've been a little disappointed with netflix as of late, especially the amount of cancellations of good shows, there won't be anything worth watching soon.
