All this commotion about a movie on Netflix "Cuties" I haven't watched it bye the way would it cause you to cancel your membership? or just dont watch it?

It seems Netflix is getting battered lost 9 billion $$$ in the last few days.

Would you say Netflix is wrong here?

NETFLIX’S GAFFE

Despite the film existing for some time, it wasn’t until August that people really became aware of it.

In August, Netflix tweeted a teaser for the movie’s release date that came with a new poster. Designed by Netflix’s team, the new poster seemed to present a different type of movie than the one Doucouré made. The original French poster framed the main cast of girls as that — young girls, walking through the streets of Paris, waving around shopping bags and having fun. Netflix’s now-deleted poster positioned the girls as older characters, similar to posters for other dance movies like Step Up. Here’s a side-by-side comparison.

Not hardly watched Netflix for weeks now. The picture quality has really deteriorated. Very blocky image. Not sure if  they are reducing bandwidth.

My other streaming options, Apple TV, IPTV, KODI don't seem to have the same problem.

I'd appreciate info on how you watch F1 live?

 

I use TVMucho which has recently changed from a catchup/Live service to a record/watch later service which is no good to me. Now I need to remember to set recording for UK Channel 4 highlights.

 

Never giving up Netflix it's the only escape from Thai soaps and game shows.

No, I get 100% subscription back for using my new crypto.com debit card, along with 3% cashback on all other things, including bill payments, car purchase etc.

I watched it, ironically it is Islam which sexualises  children far more than any film like cuties which is having a go at corrupt and degrading western values, as the creator of the film wants to depict. Islamic scripture give permission to marry pre pubescent girls and the waiting period after a divorce for marrying children. The girls in the film would have been too old for the Prophet. The Idda is the waiting period after divorce before you can marry a girl before puberty. Of course the apologists have their ready made excuses for this practice, which we call pedopillia these days. Quote from the Hadith of Bukari, the most respected one.

Exactly.

Miss the remainder of season 5 of Lucifer and upcoming Season 6? Never!!!!

I cancelled my Netflix account because the TV series I was following stopped at the fourth season, although the actual series lasted a lot longer, they also missed out the last season of Doc Martin.
