There’s A “Showstealer Pro Trial Version” Watermark All Over “Arrested Development”

Don’t worry, guys, it’s a joke.

1. Some scenes from the new season of “Arrested Development” are watermarked with the words “Showstealer Pro Trial Version.”

2. This confused a lot of people.

3. If you pay careful attention, you’ll notice the watermark is only on footage from past seasons of the show (AKA before “the great dark period”).

4. This led some to believe Netflix was too cheap to buy the rights to the actual footage.

Keep seeing some kind of "show stealer pro trial version" water mark??

Why are the new arrested development episodes flashbacks clearly ripped with a watermark? "Show stealer pro trial version" :/

— phonicpod (@Alex Smiles)

ah! any actual scenes from the original show come up "scene stealer pro trial version" cuz they don't "own" the rights?

10. But the good news is it’s all a joke because Showstealer Pro isn’t an actual thing, and Netflix signed a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television for rights to the show in 2011.
