    Seriously. I'm not advocating for it, but when international rollouts are as inept as this, I certainly understand it.

    I am aware there's a streaming website where Origins can be viewed -- illegally -- and I've seen a whole lot of tweets from people not elligible for all-access tweeting about it so I'm fairly certain MGM and Stargate Command are aware that's how a lot of "blocked" people are already watching anyway.

    And before you ask, yes -- I have the link, and no -- I haven't watched it. Not planning to either.

    So, they're now calling this "Stargate Origins: Catherine". Gearing up for more seasons? Hopefully of higher quality.

    They can stick their other Origins-story where Ra doesn't shine.

    And as far as the "worldwide" release of this one -- I'll believe it when I see it available in my neck of the woods.

    Nevertheless, MGM has lost a supporter eitherway.

    It is a great news. At least something has happened. I hope they completly remake the stargate visuals and gate / DHD sound effects (according to the "usual" SG-1 one), so after that maybe it will be an enjoyable mini SG adventure.

    I see dangling the stargate carrot still works for you. Are you really that naive?

    The VFX of the gate as they made it in Origins is not going to be the same as SG-1's.
    They added VFX-shot not changed any. They took the spinning camera-movements out (heard about them).

    The story will still be the same. VFX and sound really can't change that.

    From the article now up on the stargate command website:

    Following on from the successful rollout of Stargate Origins earlier this year, Stargate Command is delighted to announce the release of a brand new cut of Catherine Langford’s adventures.

    On June 19, 2018, Stargate Origins: Catherine (Feature Cut) will be available for download on digital platforms worldwide. This all-new version of the Stargate Origins story brings ten action-packed episodes together in one feature-length cut, adding a whole host of new features including:

    * An updated sound mix
    * A new, extended title sequence that teases the mystery and tone of the feature
    * Seamless transitions merging the episodic format into an uninterrupted singular viewing experience
    * Enhanced VFX shots
    * Subtitles in 12 languages for our global community of Stargate fans

    What’s more, this new feature-cut will be available in stunning 4K, making it the first release ever to bring the visual richness of that format to the Stargate franchise.

    “Stargate Origins was created as a dual form of storytelling. First, it is a self-contained short format episodic series that was inspired by serialized science fiction with a nod towards contemporary digital storytelling. We also intentionally built our ten episodes to track a broader story so it could be experienced as a feature-length program. We’re excited to share Stargate Origins: Catherine in this single, longer format and hope you enjoy the story in this new uninterrupted cut,” said Sam Toles, MGM’s SVP of Digital and New Platforms.

    Stargate Origins: Catherine (Feature Cut) will be available to own on digital in SD, HD, and 4K for $19.99 in the US, and at comparable rates internationally.

    As part of the membership benefits, each Stargate Command All-Access member will be given an exclusive key to redeem his or her copy of Stargate Origins: Catherine (Feature Cut) on the iTunes store.
    There is literally not a single way I'm going to pay 20 euro, or whatever the equivalent might be, if it's available in my country, for this. NOT in a million or so years. Forget it!

    At least they have admitted this way that SG:O was far from good or perfect. It is a massively disappointing 2/10 points at me at the moment, but maybe it can go up to 3-4/10. And unfortunately it is still far from an "average" standards of any SG episode. The acting is horrible, the story is meh, the jokes are inappropriate, the production value looks poor. But in spite of these I could see a little glimpse of (no, not Kobol) a used-to-be shiny franchise.

    It is still unacceptable how they manage the other countries. And why would anyone pay 20 dollars, if you could watch the 3 shows for that amount of money for the remaining months? Oh yeah, because they are not capable/willing to solve the technology behind to support the fans worldwide with more SG:C servers. And it is still a disgrace in the XXI. century.

    But as I said before I won't hate them, just I am disappointed and annoyed as it is not fair with long-time fans. I still believe in the future of this franchise. At least they noticed the negative feedback from the fans and I am wondering if they have made any real changes.

    That's the problem -- they haven't.

    The spinning is just not necessary in a feature cut, which has to flow like one story. And if you're back to editting you can alter VFX as you go. And better sound effects or whatever else you would need to spice it up to match a 4K download.

    And my reasons not spending the equivalent of 20 dollars on this download:

    A digital download -- virtual zeros and ones, not even an actual disc to add to the collection -- just air in a manner of speaking
    There's not even manufacturing costs of making the DVD, or the cover art. No extras.

    MGM has given 6 countries a whole lot more for their 20 dollar, and all I get (if it will be available) is a digital download of something I might not even like?!? Guess again...

    Interesting to see the rebrand. I think there's potential in the format if they don't shoehorn stuff in. There's plenty of other one off or minor characters who'd be interesting to explore without causing the groan inducing "solutions" that this did. I'm willing to give them another shot at the concept.

    I assume you're referring to the memory loss required to fit into the time line?

    They got their chance to proof they value the fans. They blew it, as far as I am concerned.

    So therefore... bye bye MGM!

    Joking or not, I do get better treatment from Disney than I do from MGM.

    t’ll be available for purchase on:

    US & Canada- Amazon Prime Video, VUDU, Comcast, FandangoNOW, Redbox, Verizon, and Cineplex.

    “Global”- Google Play, iTunes, Microsoft, and PlayStation Store.


    Two things, does that mean it’ll be free to Amazon Prime subscribers? And doesn’t Redbox deal in DVD/Bluray?

    ETA: nevermind about Redbox, they do have streaming.

    I went and looked it up on the Microsoft Store, and found it.

    In Belgium available for 16,99 euro for the HD version, and 13,99 euro for the SD version. Subtitles are English, French and Dutch.

    HD = 6,1 GB (1080p) or 3,22 GB (720p)
    SD = 1,8 GB

    Can be played on Xbox, or Windows 8 and higher.

    Time says 1h44 minutes - no rating.

    ***

    No luck on the Playstation Store.

    ***

    iTunes

    Available for 16,99 euro, in HD and 4K.
    However, there's a catch: 4K can only be viewed on Apple TV 4K.

    iTunes films can be watched on computer, iPod, iPad or Apple TV.
    HDR playback is only available on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus, iPhone X, iPad Pro 10.5, iPad Pro 12.9 and Apple TV 4K.

    HD = 3,6 Gb (720p) & ?? Gb (1080p)
    SD = 1,59 Gb

    Subtitles are plenty: English, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish & Turkish

    Yup, people expecting to see Origins in 4K are so going to disappointed... cause that's not happening unless you're stocked with an Apple 4K TV.

    Interesting article, explaining Apple 4K TV: iTunes 4K Movies Are Only For Apple TV Streaming, Not For Downloading

    ***

    Google play next...

    Odd... length is 40 minutes shorter on Google Play than it is on iTunes and the Microsoft Store: 104 minutes.

    Costs 16,99 euro

    No info on quality.

    ***

    16,99 euro = 19,74 US dollar
