Forget House of Cards: Daredevil looks like Netflix’s real flagship show

House of Cards will always have a place as the show that put Netflix on the map as a serious content producer. However, some new data reveals that this year’s Daredevil might be an even bigger smash hit than the Kevin Spacey-led Washington DC melodrama. More →

Now we know what the Joker will look like in ‘Suicide Squad’ this summer

Suicide Squad is another movie comic book fans should have on their list for next year. Supposed to launch in August 2016, the film brings together a band of villains from various DC titles, including Batman’s most popular bad guy, the Joker. A trailer has yet to be released for the movie, so we’re yet to see how any of the villains in it look like. But as CNET reports, we now get to at least look at Jared Leto in character. More →

ESPN Vs. Verizon FiOS Lawsuit

ESPN has achieved the impossible: It’s made me root for Verizon

ESPN has achieved the impossible: It’s made me root for Verizon

Verizon isn’t a company that we normally think of as a champion for consumers. However, it deserves a good deal of credit recently for its bold decision to start offering its FiOS customers slimmer bundles of channels that may or may not include ESPN on them. As Re/code reports, ESPN has now sued Verizon for allegedly violating its agreements to not break up its channels into smaller bundles. While ESPN may very well be in the right legally, I still can’t help but root for Verizon here. More →

Why has Hulu posed little threat to Netflix? New report blames a predictable culprit

Why has Hulu posed little threat to Netflix? New report blames a predictable culprit

There’s a lot to like about Hulu but it’s never posed any kind of threat to Netflix, despite its clear ambitions for doing so. If you want some perspective, consider that the last time Hulu announced its subscriber numbers, it had 6 million in total. Netflix, meanwhile, added a stunning 4.9 million subscribers over the last quarter alone and now boasts a subscriber base of more than 62 million worldwide.

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.
