How To Watch Netflix From Any Country

This is the Netflix hack the world has been waiting for

By on May 21, 2016 at 11:15 AM.

This is the Netflix hack the world has been waiting for

Because Netflix doesn’t own the global licensing rights to all of the movies and TV shows it carries, a good deal of its programming remains completely unavailable to subscribers outside of certain geographic regions. Indeed, one of the reasons why Netflix is so intent on developing its own original programming is precisely because they don’t have to deal with thorny licensing issues.

Now if you find yourself in the frustrating position of wanting to watch something on Netflix that is otherwise geographically restricted, there’s a new desktop app that can help turn that dream into a reality.

Netflix launches Fast.com, a brilliantly simple website that tells you how fast your download speed is

Netflix offers some of the best content available anywhere, but a shoddy Internet connection is a surefire way to put a damper on the entire viewing experience. So in an effort to keep users more informed about how fast their Internet connection is — or isn’t, Netflix on Wednesday launched Fast.com, a bare bones website that does one thing and one thing only — precisely tells users how fast their download speed actually is.

45,000 people are demanding that Netflix do something it definitely won’t do

Netflix is one of the most universally adored services out there. Where as most companies have as many outspoken critics as they do fans, heaps of praise are constantly shoveled Netflix’s way by customers. Since it’s so rare to see users upset with the company, it’s definitely a change of pace when nearly 45,000 people band together and demand that Netflix change one of its policies — but that’s exactly what happened earlier this week.  More →

Watch the first trailer for ‘Orange is the New Black’ season 4

More than any year before it, 2016 might be the year of the Netflix original series.

Terrific new Netflix tool will help you beat your carrier’s data caps

Netflix will now let you adjust the video streaming quality in its mobile app, so that you don’t go over your monthly data allotment when watching movies and TV shows over a cellular connection. If you’re on an unlimited plan, that’s probably not something that will affect your mobile experience. But iPhone and Android users who like to watch Netflix shows over cellular plans with limited data will surely appreciate the new settings option.

The clever way Netflix is manipulating your binge watching

The clever way Netflix is manipulating your binge watching

Netflix is a hugely popular streaming service that has more than 81 million worldwide subscribers. What makes Netflix so popular is that it offers instant access to hundreds of titles, including original content, that are available to stream on a whim. There are no commercials, and you don’t have to wait a week to see the next episode of your favorite series. However, just because you just ended a six-hour Netflix binge doesn’t mean you were in full control. The company may have figured what you were going to click next before you did. And it did it so by simply looking at nothing other than the type of artwork people like. More →

Over 75% said they did.

Apple Acquiring Netflix

It makes much more sense for Apple to compete with Netflix than to buy it

It makes much more sense for Apple to compete with Netflix than to buy it

With iPhone sales down, perhaps temporarily, Apple CEO Tim Cook indicated during the company’s earnings conference call this week that Apple is always on the look out for exciting new technologies and companies to acquire. Not only that, Cook suggested that Apple would be willing to shell out big bucks for a blockbuster acquisition if the right opportunity arose.

We’re always looking in the market about things that could complement things that we do today, become features in something we do, or allow us to accelerate entry into a category that we’re excited about,” Cook explained. Later on, Cook added that Apple “would definitely buy something larger than we bought thus far.”

Time Warner’s new Netflix rival isn’t a Netflix rival at all

By on April 26, 2016 at 5:53 PM.

Time Warner’s new Netflix rival isn’t a Netflix rival at all

There’s a whole lot of money to be made in streaming content to computers and mobile devices, and big media companies have no intention of letting Netflix and Amazon dominate the market without a fight. Companies from HBO and Showtime to Hulu and Verizon have all launched subscription streaming services in an effort to chase cord cutters and “cord nevers” who don’t pay for cable or satellite television service, and the streaming market is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.

Now, Time Warner has tossed its hat into the ring in announcing a new streaming service of its own. While the media giant’s plan certainly seems interesting, its new service isn’t likely to keep any Netflix executives up at night. More →
