    still, it impacts Universal, and Disney will feel that competition especially during these negotiations

    I wonder if the existence of the union contract inhibits Disney from paying a bonus to the covered CM's.

    I likely does - certainly impacts giving raises. You'd think if they went to the union and offered it though it would be fine - but dealing with a union definitely complicates things

    I don't think Disney is as successful as a business as Comcast so there isn't as much, if any, excess profits to share. We may like Disney better, but that doesn't translate into as much profit as Comcast gets, even though many of us hate Comcast!

    It definitely could be your Roku but it would be hard to say without buying something else that you (potentially) don't need. If it's constantly rebooting or none of the titles are loading in multiple apps, it's probably your roku. I got a FireTV Stick for Christmas and it's working a lot better but I wish it had the screensaver and hardwire connection like my roku did.

    We find the roku stick to be less user friendly and more buggy (I don't even know if that's a word lol) than our Firestick. Both are just sticks though that go into your HDMI port on your TV. The Roku stick came with our tv that we bought over 3 years ago so I don't know if newer Roku devices are better.

    Buggy is probably correct! I do have one of those, but my son uses it and seems to work fine for him. The Roku boxes used to be really good, but now they really aren't anymore and a lot of the streaming companies don't update apps on these older versions. So that causes problems too, especially if we're talking Disney and their IT issues. Of course they might shop their streaming out to another company to manage so I don't know. Still doesn't fix the fact that people expect these apps to just work and they are not gonna replace a streaming box or smart tv every couple years.

    I haven't had any problem with the Disney Now app on my Apple tv.

    :rotfl2: There are plenty of profits to show the shareholders, especially from parks and resorts (not to mention the gazillion million billion jillion dollars from Marvel and Star Wars box office). Based on the information released in quarterly earnings calls, Disney can definitely afford to be more generous. They are taking the calculated risk on paying low and seeing if they still turn this kind of profit. Not personally a risk I would take with the goodwill of my brand name but nobody asked me!

    Yes, they should increase dividends.
