    Well said. I am also consider to pay the 20$ as a sign of support. If I go out to eat some junkie food I can easily spend the same amount of food on KFC, McD or pizza....

    By the way we should open some "Stargate Command - suggestions and feedbacks" thread here. I tried to watch the website with my Samsung Galaxy S7 and I could simply not find how to post on their forum. Literally I have spent 40 minutes and I clicked every possible options now. But as soon as I have checked it on my PC, I could immediately see a "(+)" sign in the top right corner. Strange.

    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.

    Well... I tried to pay it on my PC, but it would be too simple, so I have to install it on my mobile. If I check in on my mobile then the "all-access" option doesn't show up anywhere. Maybe I am blind. I will give on an other try on my PC.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Besides the episode streaming and mission files, what other extras are there for All-Access only?

    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)

    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 All-Access Mission Files and such seem like they would be wiki writers' nightmares. In SG1, SGA, and SGU, fans treat the side material, such as from the magazines, usually as not canon, because it didn't occur on screen, sometimes contradicts what is on the screen, and the citations can't be verified by everyone.

    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.

    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.
