Netflix is already looking beyond 4K

Years after they made their debut, 4K televisions are finally affordable. It was only a matter of time, but the average viewer is only now beginning to upgrade to the latest standard in display technology. But despite all the hype that 4K resolution has received, Netflix is confident that another technology will be the real difference maker this generation. More →

Torrent streaming site declares war on ‘righteous content monopolies’ – and it might win

Torrent streaming site declares war on ‘righteous content monopolies’ – and it might win

To the dismay of content rights owners, which Popcorn Time calls “righteous content monopolies,” the popular streaming service isn’t quite ready to be wiped off the face of the Earth. The “Netflix for pirates” is here to stay and it’s about to offer pirates a major new feature: streaming movies and TV shows directly to any Internet browser. That means you won’t need a Popcorn Time client on your computer, smartphone or tablet, as you’ll be able to stream whatever you want right inside your preferred browser.

Netflix VPN Not Working Ban Fix

Netflix has no chance of winning the battle against VPN pirates

Netflix has no chance of winning the battle against VPN pirates

If you’re paying for Netflix in your local market but use a VPN service to access Netflix content from a different country, namely the U.S., you’re violating Netflix’s rules and you’re considered by many to be a pirate. You’re probably paying a monthly or annual fee for your VPN access, but even if you’re not downloading any illegal content using torrent services, and your only “crime” is accessing the Netflix content not available in your region, that still makes you a pirate.

Netflix finally put its foot down and took action against VPN offenders a few weeks ago, but the streaming company is fighting a battle that likely can’t be won. In fact, Netflix probably shouldn’t even want to win this war. More →

Late last month, we told you about all of the new movies and TV show seasons Netflix planned to add to its catalog over the course of February. As well all know, Netflix’s content library is not static — the service constantly adds new content and removes old content as licensing rights expire and new deals are signed.

In the month of February, Netflix will add dozens of new TV shows and movies to its lineup, and the additions already began on Monday, February 1st, with a huge list of 28 new movies and TV seasons. Don’t bother going through them all, because we’ll show you the best ones right here. More →

Netflix let a bunch of comedians each make their own episode of a TV show

Netflix has already announced over a dozen new and returning series for 2016, but that doesn’t mean the schedule is set for the rest of the year. On Monday, the streaming service revealed another show that will debut in March called The Characters, and its premise is one of the strangest we’ve seen from the company so far.

VPN Speed Comparison

This site ranks VPN speeds so you know which service will stream Netflix the fastest

This site ranks VPN speeds so you know which service will stream Netflix the fastest

Netflix is at the start of a very long battle with VPN service users that will aim to prevent people from streaming content to regions where it is not licensed. The battle is being driven by content rights owners, of course, which aren’t happy that users are able to stream movies and shows in regions where they are not licensed. Needless to say, things aren’t exactly cut and dry — this is going to be a long, drawn-out battle with plenty of back and forth.

In the meantime, people will continue to use VPN services to get around Netflix’s streaming restrictions. People also use VPNs for a variety of other things that have some pretty heavy bandwidth needs, so wouldn’t it be nice to know which VPN service providers offer the fastest service? Well now there’s an easy way to find out. More →

Netflix Fix VPN Block

New ways emerge to get around Netflix’s VPN blocking

New ways emerge to get around Netflix’s VPN blocking

If you thought Netflix’s VPN fix that would prevent subscribers from accessing content that’s not licensed for their country, you were wrong. You see, many Netflix subscribers around the world use their credentials to log into the U.S. version of the service, which has the most movies and TV shows. Netflix doesn’t really seem to care about this, but it has to respect the wishes of content owners. That’s why the company started cracking down on VPN users in Australia recently, in an attempt to prevent them from viewing content that’s not available on Netflix Australia.

However, there’s a fix for this, and Netflix is far from having won this battle.

Earlier this month, word began to spread that Netflix engineers had added secret category codes to the streaming service in order to create even more distinct categories than users would typically see on the front page.

Blogs and news organizations picked up the story within hours, but it all came to a head when Stephen Colbert dedicated an entire segment to the discovery. Now, a week later, Netflix has decided to return the favor.

The quick and easy way to see whether your Netflix account has been hacked

You’re probably sharing your Netflix account with your loved ones, exes, and their best friends’ dads. There’s really nothing wrong with that and Netflix doesn’t care. But what Netflix does care about is where its content is seen. That’s why you absolutely must check who’s using your account and where they’re located. You should also remember that Netflix credentials are one of the cheapest commodities on the dark web, with accounts selling for less than $1 a pop.
