    Great point, nivao. If the audience has to refer to additional texts to understand the story, it is not storytelling in the traditional sense, but something else and maybe needs to be called something else, such as an interactive experience, rather than a just a movie. Printed nonfiction books are starting to get into side material somewhat, with QR codes to direct readers to YouTube videos of the authors talking or doing demos, and that is poor writing if the demos are needed to understand the text.

    I would call that bad storytelling anyway. Why would we need to read additional text to be able to understand the story on the screen? A good writer makes sure that the whole story on the screen, whether a movie or TV show, can be understood. Supplementary material, like magazines, wiki, character bios, or these mission files, simply flesh out some of the backstory or dive deeper into character backgrounds and particular events, but are never required to understand the story itself.

    I just see it as an excuse by the writers to come up with solutions to the continuity issues and inconsistencies, something that fans usually do, to justify their decisions.

    From the photos in the quizzes for SG1, SGA, and SGU, they seemed to be the ones from the old Stargate site. I wonder if there are SGO ones like those.

    The Dial Home interviews are all-access only. The first two, are free for all too though.
    There are Behind-the-scenes videos for Origins which are AA only. Interviews, like the Philip Alexander one.
    There are DVD-extras which are also all-access only.
    When Origins finishes next week, they'll be able to download it in full.

    It's easier to list what is free:
    * the message feed
    * the quizzes
    * most of the articles
    * gifs (but there hardly are any)
    * photo sets (but they're old ones)

    I will try. The support team also responded and they asked more details about my Android version, my mobile. Once I have seen an ad to buy all-access,but as soon I clicked on it, it started to offer to download it again from GooglePlay. Why is this payment so overcomplicated?

    edit. If I download it on my PC, then it will install it on my mobile, but the "all-access" sign is still nowhere. Grrr...

    edt 2.: I have installed it on my tablet as well, but the "all-access" option is nowhere.
    The Great and Powerful Pharaoh K. Hamenthotep asked me to convey the following message to you:

    Tell Platschu he needs to click watch series and try to watch an episode. It doesn't matter which one, as long as it's not a free to view one, then the "get all-access" message will appear.

    I'd like to add that you can only buy all-access from the mobile app. Only the USA can buy on the website.

    We would watch SG-1 on Netflix, than it moved to Amazon and we couldn't watch it. It showed up on Hulu and was unwatchable, Hulu at the time was streaming low-quality signals. We cancelled Hulu and someone said that Hulu improved/is improving their stream but we decided we weren't interested.

    Well... I am Hungarian, but I live in the UK. So technically it should be there.

    Either it is a bug or you are in a country that does not get all access...then that option will be nowhere

    Then why haven't you? I've seen you on the message feed and it doesn't say all-access next to your rank.
    Perhaps it's because all-access goes away after May 15?

    Because the website isn't mobile device friendly, because they are trying to get you to install the app instead. Marketing 101.
    It also loads incredibly slow on mobile devices (same as the above, to get you to install the app instead).

    Too bad the app crashes more than it actually works.

    I’ll be happy with my shirt, the shows I watched for 8-9 months from when it went live and access to the full web-series all for $20. That’s how much I pay for only 2 months of Netflix, and less than what I paid for in drinks last night with dinner. So that was a great deal! I understand your preference for hard copies which totally makes sense. Don’t have to rely on internet and all that. Personally, I have 2 young kids and DVDs tend to get scratched and then are useless. Same with my old cd collection. Luckily I had backed up most of the music years ago. I like the convenience of being able to watch a movie I bought, especially having the kiddos movies, accessible anywhere we go. So whether it be at home on the TVs in different rooms or on a long car ride on the tablet or phone, we have our movie collection. So that works best for us. I’m sorry your upset that others are excited about the web-series. It does suck it’s not completely international. I don’t know enough about distribution rights and costs to have an informed opinion on that other than I’m sure it was more expensive to do so which led to the limited availability.

    How nice you get to have all that -- we get nothing. All we get are people like you jumping up and down with excitement, raving about their T-shirt and their all-access while a lot of other people have no access and are left to the mercy of spoilers and images that spoil the frak out of SGO.

    And yes, digital is possible here too... but I prefer hard copies to digital cause I have tendency to loose digital copies more often than I care to admit. I download music from iTunes but I much rather prefer the actual CD to the digital download.

    I can watch all DVD's without commercials, and I don't even need internet for it -- just my Xbox (cause my DVD-player bailed on me a few weeks ago).

    MGM isn't proactive -- they are hanging on by a thread. What will you be happy about when May 15 comes around, by the way? Or were you unaware your all-access pass ends that day, with streaming going away.
