    It would do okay on amazon probably, they aren't worried about live viewing and subs would probably go up

    I would sub to amazon video even though I watch it through something else, to make it happen.

    At least in Germany (and most likely elsewhere, too) its on Netflix. But I agree, Amazon picking it up would also work. Bezos seems not to be afraid of "wasting" money on well produced shows in order to grow Prime's/Video's user base.

    I didn't know that Van Helsing and Wynonna Earp are also SyFy series (also on Netflix in Germany). And to be honest: I actually enjoy both as good-popcorn-turn-your-brain-off series. But given the choice what to drop and what to keep, I'd clearly pick The Expanse and drop both for it.

    I have been following this whole thing.

    Apparently the Expanse has decent ratings if you take into account all of people watching it on streaming sites. The problem is that nobody watches it live due to the target demographics that show is aimed at (mostly younger people or older nerds that use tech)

    They botched the worldwide streaming rights so badly that no one company can even buy then outright, and they are split between 4-5 different services. Netflix passed because they would only have stream rights to season 4 in the US. I believe Amazon is still considering it since they could potentially get a combination of the older seasons, plus any new ones that are produced.

    How is this network so shockingly incompetent in so many ways.

    The Expanse [Megathread]

    SyFy have a history of being increasingly terrible. They had a niche, threw it away, tried to rebuild it and are now throwing it away again. The problem is that with the streaming services increasingly producing good sci fi, what is the point of SyFy?

    SyFy has produced great content the last years.

    In addition to the expanse they have made magicians, krypton, happy!, sharknado, van helsing etc.
    It's just limited rights to revenues that boned them on expanse profits.

    I have a suspicion they have similar limited rights with those other properties. They're all on Netflix as originals (apparently) in the U.K, just like The Expanse.

    Patiently waiting to see what that little blob of protomolecule has been up to for the past 4 episodes on the Rochi

    I'm sure kiddo being conveniently interrupted at the end of the last EP isn't related or anything

    The dead crew that was still attached to the floor with magboots while in zero-G was damn unsettling.

    It isn't. In the books it's the conduit the protomolecule "AI" uses to communicate with Holden using the guise of our favorite intrepid space detective.

    The last episode finished book 2.

    Apparently they are aiming to finish book three by the end of this season.
