    Ah... oh... oops...

    Actually, I think they'll be more annoyed when they've read the fine print and learn that the all-access to stargate command ends on May 15, 2018.

    Really people, don't any of you read the fine print before you commit to something?

    From the FAQ on Stargatecommand.co:

    When will my pre-sale exclusive T-shirt ship?

    T-shirts will ship in October 2017.

    I sure knew why I did not get hyped over the announcement of this

    There are some cases where I will say, come take my money but this is not one of them. It is just disappointing how they treat the fans of the franchise, like cows to milk money from

    I think, the biggest mistake in this particular case is alienating most of the larger fanbase.
    6 countries get exclusive content, the rest of us can have the glorified GW rip-off (sorry, that's how I see it). Except that on GW the interviews, podcasts and cool stuff isn't hidden behind a pay-wall. Sure, we don't get to watch the entire stargate franchise, but come one... most of us have that sitting at home on a bookshelf on DVD or BlueRay.

    However, it's no different than deciding a show's fate on one set of your audience.

    For anyone outside of the 6 lucky countries, you can literally kiss later access goodbye.

    Someone on Reddit contacted the Stargatecommand team about access outside of the 6 countries and they got a reply. This particular bit seemed interesting enough to post here:

    "We set out to offer the largest collection of Stargate content ever assembled in one place to accompany the new Origins series - offering that on a consistent basis across all worldwide territories was simply not an option, but we did make sure the All-Access Pass would be available to as many countries as possible upon launch."

    Here's the thread.

    Maybe, this does not include Origins but I wouldn't put it passed them at this point.

    I'd say they do not care about the fans but about the money, only that there is a big mistake in their thinking, if It was not only for 6 countries, they could earn more

    That said, I live where I could watch it, but I am not going to because this way of making buisness is a way I do not want to support

    But you are right of course Falcon, most of us do have their fave Stargate series on the shelf

    True, but money does make the world go round unfortunately. Whether you agree with it or not.

    Maybe, therefore it's for the best there isn't any news or any other stuff being dropped at regular intervals (except perhaps passed next week when the site launches) so that it doesn't constantly feel like salt in an open wound. Pitting the haves and havenots against one another is so awesome.

    Yes, I do agree with that, too, salt in wounds is not nice

    Looks like Stargate Command is offline.

    Couldn't reach the site earlier. Or it's being prepped to go online.

    Nope, I still get the "Site can't be reached" message.

    Don't worry about it though -- I'm not the fan they are looking for anyway.
    I can only access their free zone so it's not like I'm missing out on anything cool.

    Fair enough.I doubt I'm the fan they're looking for either,given that I wish the international roll-out had been sorted out before launch,and haven't signed up yet.

    Actually, it was only the US that was allowed to sign up early, so when the site launches today (or later today), the app will also go live, and that's how UK (and Germany, Canada, Oz & NZ) peeps can sign up for all-access.

    So, you are in fact very much a fan they are looking for.

    The rest of the fandom is only allowed in steerage (3rd class).

    Nice of you say I'm in the right category.Geographically? Yes.Right now,financially? Nope.
    If I decide to enlist (once it's possible to do so) I need to make sure my dog's upcoming trip to the vet isn't going to bust my account first.His health is more important than any show any day,though I'm genuinely interested in Catherine Langford's backstory and in seeing what they come up with.

    I don't think the rest of the world will be shut out for long,but I do understand why you're feeling shunned!

    When it comes to all-access, the only thing the rest of the fandom might (and I stress the might) have access to at some point in time (far too late in time, I'm afraid) would be Origins.

    All the cool new stuff they've been recording for it in the last few weeks, like interviews and whatnot is off limits.

    So yeah, I'm not feeling too much Stargate love at the moment.

    I really want this to be the start of something. How likely that is remains to be seen. I will probably give Origins a shot, even though I am not a fan of 10 minute episodes. They should have just given us the full 100 minute movie, which is what this really is.

    If you put the 10 episodes together, you have one movie.

    Hey, at least you have access -- no complaining now. That's only for the people in steerage.

    Very true. I shouldn't complain. I just hope this venture leads to more. It has been tough without Stargate.

    BIG NEWS!!

    Stargate Command and MGM announced Stargate Origins sweetstakes to win a VIP tour to the Stargate Origins set in LA -- big fancy weekend.

    It's open to US residents only -- and that made me snort so loud, I woke the cats from their peaceful sleep.

    MGM is thanking the fans alright -- just too bad, the audience wasn't there to keep Universe in the air. Alienate the rest who might be able to give it another go, and this "reboot" has sunk before it has even gotten off the ground.

    It's more than likely due to covering the costs of worldwide flights. It's nothing strange either. I'm sure plenty of competitions are restricted to the country running them. MGM isn't setting out to be evil and alienate their fanbase with this.
