    It seems Gateworld doesn't understand the difference between "buying MGM" and "acquiring content from MGM". Apple is not buying (parts of) MGM, they are interested in putting their content on their streaming service, basically what Amazon Prime already does in the US and the UK by putting Stargate in their library.

    Apple TV May Boost its Content With Help From MGM And Pac-12

    Apple reportedly in talks with MGM, Pac-12 to boost Apple TV+ offerings

    Apple TV+ is going up against the likes of Netflix, which has deep connections to Hollywood, and Disney+, which has a massive content library. It remains to be seen whether partnerships with MGM or the Pac-12 conference will give it enough of a boost to better match up against its rivals, but it appears that Apple is not backing down from the challenge.

    And the original Wall Street Journal article (though you need a subscription to read it):
    Apple Held Preliminary Talks With Pac-12 Conference, MGM

    But the Business Insider article is free to read:
    Apple's strategic pivot for Apple TV+ could include sports rights and studio acquisitions

    Talks have "yet to reach an advanced stage," but they indicate that Apple is considering licensing or acquisitions as a means to quickly build out its $5-a-month streaming video service Apple TV+ into a more robust offering as the iPhone maker transitions to services-led growth. The Pac-12 equity stake could be valued at up to $5 billion, while MGM could cost as much as $10 billion.

    This article puts it as a "might", "could" or "wishful", depending where Apple wants to take Apple+ but for anyone hoping 2020 brings new Stargate. I suggest you don't hope too much cause the talks are only in prelimenary stages.

    MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) Holdings. A deal with MGM could manifest as either a licensing agreement or an outright acquisition deal of the privately held company, currently owned by several private-equity firms. Either way, MGM would automatically give Apple TV+ what it currently lacks: a deep library of premium film and TV content that includes the James Bond and Rocky/Creed franchises, "The Silence of the Lambs," and "Stargate SG-1," the longest-running sci-fi series in US history. If Apple acquires MGM outright, Apple not only could offer these shows and films on-demand on Apple TV+, but create new versions without having to pay recurring licensing fees, a key advantage of ownership, particularly at a time when proven, global franchises are a rare, high-value commodity. For example, if Apple chose to, it could produce a revival series based on James Bond or Stargate, exclusively for Apple TV+, enabling it to tap into cult fan bases around the world. Revivals on cult classics have previously worked for other SVOD, including Showtime OTT ("Twin Peaks") and CBS All Access ("Star Trek").

    *****

    EDIT

    Apple TV -- Apple+ doesn't seem to be available in Belgium so Netflix stays the top priority.

    If all these streaming services want a piece of the pie, they have to have as much content available as possible, I guess.

    It's the appeal of Netflix for me, even if the content in this part of the world is probably one of the smallest libraries around.

    Because otherwise people might come and go as they please which means they are not paying a monthly fee for 12 months but only for 3 perhaps, or 2...

    But it would also mean that maybe they would order new SG contents too. We will see.

    Maybe the twitter storm should focus on Apple, because random tv channel names won't reach anything.

    I imagine, if they want to foot the bill for that new order, that MGM will have little issue. If it's MGM that has to pay, you can kiss that idea goodbye.

    Apple+ isn't available in my country so why would I even bother to do that?
    I don't remember anyone sticking up for us poor sods left out of Command, so I'm not gonna dance to American fans' tunes when they can't be bothered to stick up for the rest of us either.

    Burned too many times...

    Nope, if I tweet, I aim them at NetflixNL and Netflix.

    I mean if we want to secure the place of Stargate at Apple then we should aim them. I have never used their ridicolously overpriced and mainly overhyped products , so I would be also happier with Netflix. But they could be still a good home as a streaming service. I don't know. I believe any channel would do at the current state as long as they give us something new SG content.

    About the Stargate Command app: Please just forget them as easy as they have moved on us. They are not worthy anymore as they have failed the test of time. We are still here, while they are a fading memory now.

    The point is, if Apple gets it, then there will still be too many people who won't be able to watch it, so why should those people attempt to convince Apple? Whatever potential new Stargate show by Apple will almost definitely remain permanently exclusive to Apple TV, and not be shown anywhere else. The way things are going in the streaming world, it's also increasingly unlikely to get it on, say, Amazon digital, or DVD/Blu-ray.

    I would prefer that a new Stargate series be on either Netflix or Amazon Prime video for maximum potential viewers.

    On Twitter, Stargate Now is also holding an Aussie Tweetstorm on Jan 26, and I think it coincides with the Jan 25 date due to time zones. No link provided to post here.

    The Tweetstorm is on Jan 25th, which, due to time zones, happens to be early in the morning on the 26th in Australia. If people are already out, or passed out, between 2 and 5 AM, before the day has barely even started, something is a little wrong here, unless some are already celebrating on the eve of Australia Day Others would probably still be asleep...

    There are so many timezones that somebody will sleep anyway. I believe they have chosen more wisely in comparsion to the last one as it will fit better to Central Europe, UK, East Coast ans West Coast US.

    Saw that mentioned.

    @NickEast -- there is a specific time for Australia on the 26th too but like GateFan says it's a public holiday.

    Regardless of where it's home maybe, if I can still get an actual physical release I'll be happy.
