As devastated as I am about having to wait until next year for Daredevil’s second season, Netflix is bringing plenty of new content to the table in May to tide us over until the heavy hitters start piling up later this summer.

Along with Inglourious Basterds, Legally Blonde and Fruitvale Station, Netflix will also bring original series Grace & Frankie and a stand-up special from Jen Kirkman to its streaming service next month. More →

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.

Arguably, the only way to truly stem piracy is to, quite simply, embrace the notion that piracy exists and subsequently do everything in your power to deliver a product or service that’s fundamentally more appealing than scouring the depths of BitTorrent.

Apple successfully implemented this strategy when it introduced the iTunes Music Store, instantly making the digital download experience a much safer and simpler endeavor than acquiring music through illicit means.

Want cheaper Netflix? Then pirate more movies

Here’s something we get the feeling that Netflix CFO David Wells will regret admitting publicly. TorrentFreak notices that during Netflix’s earnings call this week, Wells admitted that Netflix will offer cheaper service in countries that have high rates of piracy since it wouldn’t make sense to offer an expensive service in markets where people are already used to stealing content over the web.

Netflix is the bellwether for cord cutting’s future – and today it looks unstoppable

A few minutes after reporting its quarterly report, Netflix share prices spiked by 12%, despite having already climbed by 40% so far this year. The key surprise here is the subscriber growth: The company added 4.9 million new subscribers during the quarter, which is about 20% more than Wall Street expected. When Netflix offers a subscriber growth surprise of this magnitude, investors will overlook earnings and revenue misses. And Netflix did miss on both of those counts. More →
