May The 4th – Star Wars Day !

It’s Star Wars Day so I thought i’d give you guys a heads up on the specials that are out there :

Amazon.ca will of course offer quite a few discounts today on Star Wars blu-rays, DVDs, CDs and toys, as will chapters.indigo.ca and Lego.

iTunes is offering up to 50% discounts on Star Wars themed apps and games. And perhaps you can find deals in the States at Alibisicon, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, BetterWorldBooks.com, EntertainmentEarth.com and Second Spinicon because our dollar is slowly climbing at 79 cents. But don’t forget deals can also be had in Great Britain.

Although our dollar is basically only worth half a British Pound at the moment and their blu-rays and DVDs are not compatible with most North American equipment, you’ll find that some deals can be had at Amazon U.K on t-shirts, posters, memorabilia, etc. And their shipping is generally cheaper and quicker than that of the United States.

CraveTV – First Thoughts

So I had finally decided to take a look at CraveTV, the streaming service that offers television programs and documentaries online and thought i’d give you my first thoughts on it.

Although I like having access to some concerts, music documentaries and the “Classic Albums” and “Behind The Music” television programs, it still feels like more can be done with the service.

At $7.99 it is quite affordable but unlike Shomi and Netflix, it only has a few feature films. And although I am tempted to remain subscribed for the extensive Monty Python, Absolutely Fabulous and Star Trek television program libraries, I don’t think I will remain on this service for long.

Like Netflix, there is just too little to watch on the service and i’ve already watched what I really wanted to within a month. The rest I already have on DVD or blu-ray.

CraveTV also would have held my attention longer if it wasn’t missing the Mythbusters episodes from 2011 and on. I’ve already watched the Seasons 5,6 and 7 episodes they have on Discovery Science and I get that channel for three bucks a month.

Perhaps I will rejoin in November and December to avoid the Christmas programming but I think all of the streaming services will need to add more television episodes, feature films and European releases to keep me subscribed for a longer period than three months.
