Not quite. Netflix works in the red. Their entire budget is dependent on debt as they've accumulated so much of it for production and programming. Their reasoning is that they'll earn that money back ten fold in the long term. Time will tell if they're right I guess.

That's not true anymore, this last quarter report they announced they were no longer doing for their operations since it was no longer needed.

Cool sounds like their bet paid off then.

I'd actually be very curious to find out if Netflix' royalty model is enabled simply when someone "clicks" on a show, or it has a caveat of some kind like "clicks on a show and continues streaming for 4 contiguous minutes" or something like that.

Well it definitely seems to have paid off, I still find it difficult to recommend netflix as a stock, it seems overvalued but i keep being proven wrong. It's definitely a great service but man, its debt and long term plans don't seem the best but well look at other streaming services crumble so perhaps they do deserve each cent the stock is worth.

I'm sure it has some minimums it has some minimums it has to meet before royalties are given but who knows, netflix keeps all their info on how their shows do to themselves.

Must be why they finally also put an actual title on the still blank Netflix placeholder. (Taking away any of the 0.00000001% hope it was anything else TMNT related.)

Meanwhile, the Loud House movie announced alongside this one, also still without an actual date, has a thumbnail and a listing among the scrollable upcoming titles section. But isn't on this list posted here. What are they even doing.

I just want the movie to come out already so we can put Rise of the TMNT behind us. I enjoyed the show more as it went on (especially the finale eps which were cool), but this will be the definitive last time the series is revisited.

Didn't they say somewhere that the movie has already finished production? They sure are taking their sweet time. Kinda wondering if the movie takes any scrapped ideas or concepts that may have been planned for the show.

The story is probably what a season 3 would have been, bringing in Krang (or the Kraang/Utroms), as well as Leonardo becoming the leader of the group.

The movie seems to have been ready/finished for over a year, they just have no reason idea what to do since it is based on a cancelled show nobody watched or liked. And will only be uploaded one day to get it over with since there's no way to spin it into a movie anyone who didn't like the show will watch. We're just waiting for it to be sent to die.

Movie might be good but that won't change any of the above, unless of course it's a 1987 turtles crossover in which case people will be talking about it.

Netflix sitting there waiting for Nick to make those final payments for getting to play it on their streaming service. Nick sitting there waiting for the last lingering merchandise dollars to come in, that mostly consists of some remaining Rise gift bags in Dollar Tree... lol

Or so one might think it worked that way if they're taking forever with it.
