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 rails against ISPs even as it agrees to pay off yet another one for better connections

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on Tuesday penned an editorial in Wired in which he defended the free Internet and advocated against the FCC’s Net Neutrality proposals, as well as against the Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger. But even though Hastings is not afraid to vividly voice his concerns – this isn’t the first time he’s written an editorial on these matters – Netflix was apparently forced to ink its fourth interconnect deal in the U.S. to make sure that TWC broadband subscribers who watch Netflix online get a decent experience.

Verizon calls out Netflix partner for ‘selective amnesia’ on streaming issues

The heated back and forth between Netflix and Verizon has gone on for long enough that other companies are beginning to throw their hats into the ring. Level 3, a Netflix network operator, came forward with evidence last week which seemed to indicate that Verizon had the capacity to cheaply and quickly upgrade its network to improve streaming quality for customers, but was consciously deciding not to do so. Verizon, unwilling let these accusations go unaccounted for, has responded with a snippy blog post of its own. More →
