    Part of why I come to these boards is to learn about movies I may not have heard of.

    the big question

    SlingTV has its on TCM Demand with about 60 films available. Basically films that have aired in the past couple of weeks. I believe its only the east coast feed. If that matters to a person, they should take that into account. I really don't care when it airs, I can just watch it on demand the next day or so at my leisure.

    the big question

    Probably not. For that app to work, you have to have TCM already through some other service like Cable, Satellite, etc... Then use those credentials to log in to that TCM app. In my experience, Sling credentials rarely work.

    Comcast moving TCM to Sports/Entertainment Package

    Part of the reason they feel free to jack up the prices, especially TCM is they figure many fans of this channel are not tech savvy. And are bound to stick around no matter how much they charge. You're a captive audience. And they take advantage of that. The only way to vote is to vote with your pocketbook and give your money to someone else. As a matter of fact, that's also a reason for the rising prices. So many are leaving cable, the companies are squeezing the remaining customers to try to make up for the shortfall. Which in turn causes more customers to leave. 👍 Sling Blue $25, $5 for news package, $5 for TCM) = $35. DSL from another company for $42. Netflix for $8, Sometimes I have Amazon Prime for $13, $20 flat antenna hanging on my wall like a picture gets 40+ channels for FREE . Roku $35 one time purchase gives access to so many other channels Pluto TV, XUMO etc... at no extra cost. Through Roku, there are literally more channels than I could ever watch. Most with ads so no extra cost. Because of stories like the ones on this site, I will never, ever have cable. And I actually have Spectrum attached to the house since my neighbor in the back has it. I get mail from them at least 2 to 3 times a month. A lady came to the door just last week. I saw the emblem on her shirt and I just said "no thanks" and closed the door. I will never sign a contract to watch TV when I can watch it for free. ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, TNT, etc... all show sports. I don't need anything else

  12. You have to remember, it works both ways. Much of what is produced today would offend many people of yesteryear. Times change and unfortunately, people's tastes do also.

    This seemed to be the setting for most Spaghetti Westerns. Wild Flower (1943) The Torch (1950)
  15. Many of these services are redundant and (In my opinion), won't be around too long because there will be a glut on the market. So what you and I and all the rest of us should do is sit down and ask yourself "what channels/content do I really want to have ?". And cobble together a package that best fits what you are interested in for the cheapest price. The days of one stop shopping are coming to an end. Its only super expensive if you try to subscribe to every single service. Just get the ones you really want because we only can watch so much. That's a great site to get information about all that's going on. And how to save money. They also have a YouTube channel. Years ago, Disney released a box set of all of their cartoons. And apparently, no one bothered to look through the cartoons to see what could be considered offensive. And unfortunately, some episodes were included that Disney was not proud of. I'm sure this time, Disney will go through each one with a fine tooth comb. And some of those you mention might not make the cut.
