Never get lost on Netflix again with this brilliant recommendation bot

But what if there was a bot that could do the deciding for you?

Netflix Subscriber Growth Decline

The real reason Netflix’s subscriber growth is falling

The real reason Netflix’s subscriber growth is falling

Netflix’s earnings results earlier this week didn’t give investors much to cheer about. While the streaming giant’s overall number of subscribers increased over the quarter, the company experienced their slowest rate of subscriber growth in history. As for the reason why, Netflix casually dismissed the data point and instead blamed the tech press for focusing too much on its plans for a $1 increase.

But the idea that Netflix subscribers — including those who were previously grandfathered in under old pricing schemes — would brazenly cancel their subscription over a meager $1 price increase just didn’t make a whole lot of sense to some, including CNBC’s Jim Cramer. Appearing on Squawk on the Street on Tuesday, Cramer instead laid out an opposite theory, namely that users are canceling their subscriptions because of a lack of content.

Netflix Vs Hulu

Netflix subscribers spend nearly 50% more time watching content than Hulu subscribers

Netflix subscribers spend nearly 50% more time watching content than Hulu subscribers

Anchored by an ever-increasing library of original content, Netflix over the last two years successfully managed to increase its subscriber base by an impressive 50%. But when it comes to all things Wall St., the What have you done for me lately? dynamic still reigns supreme. So when the streaming giant released its earnings earlier this week and disclosed that its subscriber growth over the last quarter was lower than it had ever been before in company history, investors were quick to panic. Since Monday, shares of Netflix have fallen by nearly 15%.

Part of the problem, according to Netflix, was higher than anticipated subscriber churn fueled by “press coverage in early April of our plan to un-grandfather longer tenured members.” In other words, some subscribers aren’t too keen on any type of price increase. All told, it hasn’t been the best of weeks for the company that has graced us with hits like House of Cards and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

But not to worry Netflix fans, not all hope is lost.

Movie and TV show downloads could be coming soon to Netflix

Netflix has long maintained a strict policy against offline viewing, even as competitors introduced the feature in their products. But the company started to change its tune earlier this year, and now it looks like Netflix offline viewing is closer than ever — at least when it comes to the technical features that would make it possible.

Netflix confirms ‘Making a Murderer’ is returning for season 2

Making a Murderer, the Netflix original true-crime documentary that set off a firestorm of debate regarding the justice system in the United States, is coming back for a second season. For those unfamiliar with the documentary, the engaging series takes an unflinching and thought-provoking look at how a man named Steven Avery may have been sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit, not once, but twice.

Netflix’s price hike has it losing way more customers than expected

Netflix just released numbers from the second quarter of 2016, which gives us our first look at how customers are responding to a price hike for older Netflix members. Prices are up from $7.99 to $9.99 for many people, and Netflix has seen its slowest growth ever in the US, adding 340,000 fewer subscribers than expected.

As you’d expect, the news has seen Netflix’s stock price tank, but the streaming giant is sticking to its guns.

Netflix Password Sharing Legal

Sharing is fine, but there’s one thing Netflix won’t let you do with your password

Sharing is fine, but there’s one thing Netflix won’t let you do with your password

Netflix password sharing is a common phenomenon, and practically everyone does it. It’s the only way to access the service free of charge. If you’ve got a friend or family member who’s a paying subscriber to Netflix, then all you need is his or her password to get in on the action. There’s legal precedent that makes Netflix password sharing a federal crime, but Netflix really doesn’t care about that. In fact, Netflix says you can do whatever you want with your password… as long as you don’t try to sell it. More →
