Netflix’s not-so-secret plan to kill TV

Netflix’s not-so-secret plan to kill TV

Netflix is a freight train seemingly incapable of slowing down. Just last quarter, the online streaming service netted an additional 4.9 million subscribers. Looking ahead, Netflix has no plans to rest on its laurels and will continue to aggressively attack the entrenched TV model that seems to be gradually losing its hold on the masses.

At the heart of Netflix’s plan to take on TV, aside from its affordable monthly rate, is original content. In a relatively short amount of time, Netflix was able to pivot from a company that primarily sent subscribers DVDs to a media powerhouse with an impressive stable of its own original programming. From House of Cards and Daredevil to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Arrested Development, the value proposition of Netflix’s exclusive content is slowly but surely starting to rival HBO.

HBO is sick of Game of Thrones torrents and it’s now going after individual pirates

Long gone are the days when HBO seemingly paid little mind to piracy. Following the leak of the first four episodes of season 5 of Game of Thrones, TorrentFreak is reporting that HBO is now dead serious about thwarting individuals from illegally downloading the world’s most pirated show.

Specifically, HBO is now putting individual pirates on notice. HBO has already issued “thousands of warnings to Internet subscribers whose connections were used to share leaked Game of Thrones episodes.” The warning messages, naturally, are being relayed through each individual user’s ISP.

Game of Thrones Season 5

HBO just made it harder for some people to watch Game of Thrones

HBO just made it harder for some people to watch Game of Thrones

HBO recently sent a cease and desist letter to a Brooklyn bar for hosting Game of Thrones themed viewing parties on Sunday nights, according to a report in The Village Voice.

The bar in question is Videology, a venue that’s equal parts bar and equal parts screening room. The bar owners presumably decided to capitalize on the immense popularity of GOT and make each new episode a communal event. In fact, some patrons would even show up to the screenings in Game of Thrones themed attire.

Sony’s Crackle is about to make its big move to win cord cutters’ hearts

If the shift to Internet TV can be said to represent something of a modern-day Gold Rush, the wave of prospectors scrambling to strike it rich includes companies like Crackle, Sony Picture Television’s Web TV site that made its first standalone pitch to advertisers this week. As part of that presentation, Crackle also teased an extensive lineup of original programming – the implication being that the space already dominated by heavyweights like Netflix and HBO still has room for upstarts armed with fresh content.
