Both Apple and Netflix are understood to have held preliminary talks with MGM about potentially acquiring the media firm.
MGM has launched Stargate Command, an online repository for all things Stargate. With some content is available for free, Stargate Command is primarily a paid streaming service for Stargate Origins and the vast back catalog of Stargate TV shows and movies. The Verge noted there were some 354 episodes and three films available, as well as all manner of behind-the-scenes and other superfan content. Stargate Origins is a ten episode streaming prequel that revisits the discovery of the first Stargate in Egypt in 1928. Access to the paid content at Stargate Command is a one-time fee of $20, but as of this writing that will take you only to May of 2018. It’s yet another silofication of streaming content, but at least it’s a semi-one-time fee.
