Netflix is reeling from its $1 price hike – and that’s incredible news for American consumers

Netflix is reeling from its $1 price hike – and that’s incredible news for American consumers

Predicting the behavior of consumers is notoriously tough, but nowhere is it harder than in the rapidly evolving video streaming market. Pretty much nobody expected Netflix’s streaming service to bloom into the huge mainstream success it currently is. A few years ago, many viewed Netflix’s streaming operation as fatally hamstrung by the narrow and often low-quality movie selection. And this autumn, almost nobody predicted just how much a $1 summer price hike would dent the company’s momentum. More →

Netflix Vs Disney

Netflix is now Disney on steroids

Netflix is now Disney on steroids

As it happens, the news about Netflix doing a sequel to “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and doing a break-through same-day streaming/movie theater release is far from the only bombshell Netflix is lobbing this month. The “Tiger” project alone has already ruffled movie industry feathers — major chains have instantly decided to blackball the film, preventing it from being screened on their theaters. Doing a streaming video sequel to a property that grossed more than $200 million globally in its theatrical run was already a major provocation to traditional movie industry, but now Netflix has another curve ball.

It has inked an unprecedented four-film package deal with Adam Sandler, arguably the biggest comedy star of late 1990s. More →

Yes, that’s correct. Four movies.

Movie theaters are teaming up to battle Netflix

When Netflix announced that it would produce its first movie — a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon — you’d expect movie companies to wave their fingers of objection in the direction toward Netflix for dipping into their profits. Well, you would be right because that is exactly what they’re doing.

Netflix is about to do the one thing movie studios dread

Netflix isn’t content to simply make great original TV series, as it looks like the company also wants to make its own feature films. What’s more interesting about Netflix’s approach to movie releases is that the company is apparently planning a special launch for its first movie – and probably all future ones as well – making it available simultaneously both via Netflix and in cinemas, as BGR sister site Deadline reports.

Netflix says it lost customers thanks to slow streaming on Comcast

Why did Netflix decide to cave in and pay Comcast for a better direct connection to its network? Because apparently slow Netflix streaming on Comcast was costing the company customers. CNN reports that Netflix this week explained to the Federal Communications Commission that the quality of Netflix streams on Comcast had become so poor that the company had no choice but to pay up for a better connection.
