Every Monday the q screen panel convenes to look at the big stories happening in the film and television worlds. This week, host Tom Power is joined by CBC entertainment reporter Eli Glasner and Refinery29's Kathleen Newman-Bremang.

They discuss Apple's newly-launched streaming service, Apple TV Plus, and Disney's forthcoming streaming service, Disney Plus, which is planned to launch mid-November.

Both companies have burst out of the gate with a lot of hype and a slate of new shows featuring big names like Jennifer Aniston, Diego Luna, Oprah Winfrey and Jason Momoa — but is it all worth it? Our panellists share their thoughts.
