Safe.TV Words+ 19 (Series Finale)
« on: May 09, 2022, 11:42:19 AM »
Welcome Premium Panel Members to NWR's exclusive TV streaming service focus panel. I want to thank each of you for volunteering for such a bold initiative and I am pleased to say that all your credit cards passed our check and now have a substantial hold on them. That is just temporary of course as we decide the fate of the streaming wars right here. See folks, the TV landscape has changed, and with nobody watching cable anymore the data from existing ratings organizations is unreliable. Since the NWR forums are so popular and active, it was obvious that these folks are the real influencers of the day and so we value your opinion and your financial commitment. We will now ask you a series of questions (rounds) and all you have to do is answer by selecting one of the streaming services from the list available.

Terms and Conditions
All panel members agree to the following terms and conditions
The panelists were assorted into a selection rotation based on the order in which they signed up. In order, they are given a list of possible streaming services to subscribe to and must select one of them. Unbeknownst to them, one of these streaming services will bomb and take all subscribers with it. If you selected that streaming service when it was your turn to choose, then you lost. That streaming service will no longer be available, and a new one will be selected by the panelist that went right before the bomb was selected. If none of the remaining panelists choose the bomb service, then the panelist who selected it to start the round is forced to choose their own bomb service and is eliminated. This process is repeated until only one streaming service remains and is declared the winner.
Message reminders
The administration will send panelists a pm alerting them to the fact the survey has begun. After that, it is up to the panelists to remember to check in on their own unless they notify the administration to send them a reminder when it is their turn.
Waiting for a selection
A generous time of 2 days (48 hours) is given for a panelist to select a service. If they've requested for me to send them a reminder when it is their turn, a message will be sent to alert them of that fact once it is their turn and 24 hours before their time to choose is up. If a choice has not been made by the end of the total 48 period, the panelist will be automatically given the bomb service and removed from the panel. The 48 hours begins from the timestamp of the post I make in this thread asking for their selection in the round.

Jumping into an already oversaturated market in 2020 might have seemed risky, but with Comcast backing Peacock it is a safe service to subscribe to.

Let's get this over with. This is a huge risk because it's been in the collective consciousness as of late.

Going with Netflix. Been getting a bad rap recently and has an unsustainable business model, but it puts out enough stuff to keep me satisfied.

"At one point it seemed like all we needed was Netflix" TOPHATANT123 thought. What started as a business that would send DVDs through the postal service created the model for TV streaming and with it took the lion's share of subscribers. Slowly but surely other media giants all began to create their own streaming services and take many of the popular shows with them.

Around that same time, our administration installed a secret agent (code name Order.RSS) within the ranks of Netlfix's leadership team. This individual was only a mission to collect ratings data, but chaos seemed to follow with each decision that was made. First, the agent convinced Netflix to overextend their budget, spending billions on half-baked TV shows for niche audiences and a dozen more Adam Sandler movies.

"That doesn't seem sustainable" TOPHATANT123 thought, but there is "enough stuff to keep me satisfied". Next, staff within the company began to speak out against offensive content and Netflix released a memo that just told them to "Leave".

Unfortunately, TOPHATANT123 had several family members working at Netflix that he now had to support so he shared his streaming service passwords with them until they could get back on their feet. The final blow was our agent's plan to crack down on password sharing.

"They had to make an example out of someone, I guess that was me" TOPHATANT stated in an interview. With the official verdict being a court ordered "cancellation" TOPHATANT123 was officially cut off from all media (strangely enough, posting to the NWR forums was still required as part of community service). Shortly before sentencing, a final public statement was released by TOPHATANT123 and merely stated "Let's get this over with".

Unfortunately, TOPHATANT123's being cancelled prevents him from continuing on in this panel. But there is still plenty of reasons to stay tuned to Safe.TV Words+. As we continue or panel we will now have specific questions that you may want to consider as you select your streaming service. The first question is:
Which streaming service has your favorite TV shows?

I am afraid we have bad news about another member of the panel. Stratos was testing out a prototype of one of our television enhancement devices. This special cable is similar to a USB cable and except rather than being universal is actually based on hynagogic brainwaves and thus internally referred to as a HSB cable. Due to Stratos' unique home theater setup we needed a y-cable version of this.
So a mere 48 hours ago we lent Stratos this yhSB cable along with explicit instructions to check back in with us. To avoid future incidents we recommend all of you check back here daily. There were some other warnings as well, including one forbidding certain combinations of the main power level and the streaming service used. Unfortunately one of those combinations was watching HBO and setting the power to the Max setting. This had caused some problems with our beta test subjects but nothing prepared us for what we found. Stratos' apparently fell deep into a series of hypnagogic hallucinations after binging Game of Thrones for 48 straight hours. What remains of Stratos is unclear as he is catatonic at the moment.
The good news is that our medical team tells me that with a lot of money and continuous therapy we can have him back to a state of obtundation within a few years. Funnily enough we were able to connect his subconscious to the NWR forums, so you may see posts from his comatose self here and there. Hopefully we can continue without any further unfortunate accidents such as these. We will start the third round of the panel shortly.
