One way Amazon Prime Video just became more appealing than Netflix

One way Amazon Prime Video just became more appealing than Netflix

Not many people would argue that Netflix offers the most comprehensive content lineup of any streaming service on the Internet, but the ubiquitous provider isn’t perfect. To that point, years into its successful run, the company still hasn’t made any tangible strides on offering customers the ability to play shows and movies offline, so Amazon went ahead and beat Netflix to the punch.

Apple’s plan to take on Netflix and Hulu is a brilliant move

Apple’s plan to take on Netflix and Hulu is a brilliant move

With rumors that Apple has plans to launch a TV subscription service in early 2016, we’ve now seen reports that the company also has its eyes set on perhaps entering the world of original content.

As we reported yesterday, Apple executive Eddy Cue and members of his team have been meeting with Hollywood executives in an effort to gauge their interest in producing original content. While the seriousness of such discussions remains unclear at the moment, one source told Variety that Apple’s ultimate goal is “to create development and production divisions that would churn out long-form content to stream in a bid to compete with Netflix.”

Netflix, beware: Apple lost the bid for ‘Top Gear’ but it’s working on in-house TV and movie projects

Netflix, beware: Apple lost the bid for ‘Top Gear’ but it’s working on in-house TV and movie projects

Soon after the BBC fired Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson, it became clear the highly praised TV show will move to a different home, even if that meant starting from scratch under a new brand. Netflix was at one point rumored to be the company offering a killer deal to Clarkson and his two co-hosts, James May and Richard Hammond, but Amazon eventually secured that contract.

Little did anyone know that Apple has been involved in those negotiations as well, looking to steer Clarkson, May and Hammond towards Cupertino. This appears to be part of a broader Apple strategy of better positioning itself in the TV ecosystem. More →

Best Netflix Movies Watch September

These hit movies are switching from Netflix to Hulu in October

These hit movies are switching from Netflix to Hulu in October

Netflix offers you fast access to a garden variety of movies and TV shows that you can instantly watch from the comfort of your home, but its catalog of titles continuously expands and contracts. The company adds plenty of new content each month but also has to cancel movies and TV shows as some licensing deals expire. Such will be the case in October when Netflix will remove a bunch of interesting titles from its library, so you should hurry up and see them in September.

However, it’s all not bad news, as the movies Netflix is removing will be available on a competing platform that you might already be using as well. More →

Here are Netflix’s most popular original shows

Aside from an extensive and ever-changing and expanding catalogue of TV shows and movies, one of the things that makes Netflix such a compelling service is that it offers up a broad selection of original and highly addicting content. From political dramas like House of Cards to delightfully absurd comedies like Wet Hot American Summer, Netflix’s expanding pool of original content has a little bit of something for everyone.

Netflix offers a tiny but tantilizing teaser for Daredevil’s second season

For my money, the best thing that came out of Marvel this year (with the exception of the stellar Secret Wars comics) was the first season of Daredevil on Netflix. It brought us down to the street level of the Marvel Cinematic Universe without losing sight of what made the movies so appealing in the first place. More →

Use this app to stop Netflix and YouTube from eating all your monthly mobile data

Have you ever received that dreaded text message from your wireless provider that you’ve reached 90% of your data cap before the end of the month? It’s a weird feeling, being scolded by your smartphone, but it’s certainly better than the alternative of the providers just collecting their overage fees at the end of the month.

Still, wouldn’t it be nice to have more control over the data you use when you’re away from a Wi-Fi connection?
