freitasm: I have just sent an email to everyone who replied in this discussion with instructions to join the Lightbox trial. No further emails will be sent after this point.




Your earlier comment said that repliers and followers were likely to be included - so I sat here quietly following the thread.  Any chance you can extend this to followers as well?

Thanks, freitasm.

Everyone:
Hope you all have the time to sign up and take a look. We're very interested to hear what you think, how it stacks up with everything else and know about all the ways you get it to break.

Thanks for the invite. We'll definitely be taking this for a spin. Our viewing habits now primarily consist of streaming NetFlix and Hulu, so we have some pretty good yardsticks to compare your service to.

Lightbox: i noticed a lot of shows are missing episodes (blacklist season 1 missing ep 1 and 11 or 12) will these be fixed?  or will you have a lot of shows with missing episodes?  

personally I mostly watch tv shows through netflix and missing episodes would put me off such a service.    I understand some episodes you cant get (quantum leap is missing a few on netflix due to licensing) but for the most part, there arent missing any.

Good point. My thoughts were that if someone follow the thread but didn't comment then wouldn't be interested as there are lots of automatic followers in every forum.

I will send details to followers as well soon.

We're still stocking the shelves here, so missing episodes are only missing until they come in. We've not licensed any partial seasons.

Tried pasting, tried typing, no joy, how frustrating.

Are you talking about the link in the email? Maybe you're talking about another link. I just clicked it.

So am I too late to be considered a poster or follower??? I've read the whole thread and a few of the other media online just didn't see the need to post although after seeing the show list at this stage a few on there I'd like to test out to see if I'd like them...Luther, Firefly for example plus the kids shows are always going to get thrashed.

Are you talking about the link in the email? Maybe you're talking about another link. I just clicked it.  


A careful look at my email link, mine is split into two halves for some reason :/ If I click the beginning of the link I go to the first half of the address (up to "h") if I click the end, I get the second half.

This is in Gmail on Chrome.


Edit: it seems to be a gmail issue, viewing the original shows no issues, the address is as expected.
