Meet the movie pirating service that Netflix is afraid of

Movie pirating used to be something that happened quietly behind closed doors. Unscrupulous Internet users would swarm to peer-to-peer file-sharing services and download bootleg copies of films, trying to hide their tracks as best they could. Now, the Internet is a very different place. People flock to Reddit and other online forums to openly discuss movie theft, and the most popular means of downloading stolen movies are widely publicized services like The Pirate Bay and Popcorn Time.

And when it comes to the latter, it turns out Popcorn Time isn’t just a tiny little piracy tool. The industry has taken notice and now Netflix, the biggest streaming movie and TV show service in the world, has directly named Popcorn Time as a threat. More →

You can finally stream ‘The Interview’ on Netflix beginning Saturday

Netflix absolutely crushed its earnings on Tuesday evening and shares skyrocketed more than 17% in after-hours trading as a result. The company added 4.33 million new streaming subscribers during the fourth quarter of 2014, and profit climbed to $83.4 million, up from $48.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Netflix had a great quarter indeed, and it was thanks in large part to some great new content that hit the service over the course of the three-month period. Now, the company has confirmed that another high-profile title will finally arrive on its digital shelves in just a few short days.

Sorry, North Korea. More →

Forget The Pirate Bay and Netflix: This might be the best way to watch movies online

Forget The Pirate Bay and Netflix: This might be the best way to watch movies online

Plenty of online services, some more legal than others, offer users instant access to movie downloads and streaming. But one company has come up with a new concept for watching movies at home that doesn’t involve buying, renting or stealing movies. The service is cheaper than Netflix — it’s actually free for the time being — and legal, as opposed to illegal downloads from The Pirate Bay or other similar torrent services. More →

This is the app Netflix users have been dying for

By on January 14, 2015 at 11:50 AM.

Netflix is a service that cord cutters can’t live without, and even those of us who still pay for TV have come to rely on Netflix’s inexpensive service for unlimited on-demand streaming of millions of movies and TV shows. For just $7.99 each month, Netflix subscribers can stream to any number of computers, TVs, tablets or smartphones, and the company touts a massive library of content to choose from.

Of course, that huge content library is both a blessing and a curse, because users often complain that it is extremely difficult to find good movies and shows to watch.

That’s where FlickSurfer comes in. More →

Netflix has just gotten a lot worse for some subscribers

Netflix’s streaming service is so popular that many Internet users would do anything to be able to access the U.S. version of the service, which has a lot more content available for immediate streaming than local versions in other countries where Netflix is present. Accessing the U.S. store through a VPN connection from overseas is common practice for some Internet users, including frequent U.S. citizens traveling to other countries, or those looking to protect their privacy. But Netflix is no longer willing to ignore this practice, Torrent Freak reports, and seems ready to take action against subscribers to meet the needs of movie studios and rights holders. More →
