SkyShowtime streaming platform has acted quickly after, a few days ago, a great controversy arose around him due to the loss of hundreds of films from his catalogue. Now, the service is reloading with releases at a good pace and users are celebrating that, apparently, the danger has passed.
Surely you remember that, recently, we talked about the setback that SkyShowtime had suffered due to the drastic reduction it had suffered the volume of your catalog. Now we can say that the tables have turned and that everything is beginning to return to normal. But is it going to be something that lasts?
More than 600 movies available
The rivers return to their course and SkyShowtime earns the applause of the users once again. However, no one escapes that it is one of the streaming platforms that is generating the most crisis due to the strange movements that carries out its catalogue. Although on Netflix or Prime Video it is also common for there to be many movies that are deleted to make room for others, it is usually a much more gradual deletion.
Unlike this, on SkyShowtime everything happens in a matter of hours. And that disappearance of more than 300 movies at once is obviously worrying users. Luckily, the return of the volume with hundreds of films has been done practically in the same way: in a few days over the weekend. But considering that this is not the first time this has happened, it will most likely happen again. It is obvious that users should start getting used to it.
What movies have you added?
There are hundreds, so, as you will understand, we are not going to list them all. But what we can tell you is that a combination has been made between films that were already available before the deletion and that have renewed their license, so they have returned, and others that are completely new. SkyShowtime’s style continues betting on catalog titlesmovies from years ago, both good and bad, that swell an entertainment fund that has always been considered, to say the least, varied.
The good thing is that this variety of movies provides a lot to choose from. You have productions that have gone through theaters with great success, such as The Bourne Ultimatum or Multiple, and films of much less popularity that, in any case, they can also entertain. Among the latest that we see added in this wave of uploads to SkyShowtime, we could also highlight films from sagas such as Jurassic Park or Full Throttle, as well as Hollywood blockbusters such as Warcraft: The Origin, Oblivion or Apollo 13.
It is appreciated a wide variety of genres and, in particular, we have noticed that many horror movies have been added. Most likely, this streaming service is already being reinforced for the future celebration of Halloween, a period in which the reproduction of movies of this genre increases. That is why we see recent additions such as Psycho, Ouija, Signal 2, Friday the 13th, The Witch or Silent Hill, to name just a few.
If what you like are comedy movies, you will also be happy to see that there are entries in the catalog of films like Two Clueless Hounds, Happy Gilmore, Ted, The Nutty Professor or Embarrassing Mess. So SkyShowtime’s decision to add movies in droves without letting the controversy spread over their image, arguably couldn’t have gone better. Criticism for that aspect is no longer heard and if now they start to bring recent movie premieres, surely they will notice a noticeable improvement in terms of subscribers.
