Netflix statistics

As the holidays approach and you plan your binge sessions on Netflix, keep in mind that when you’re watching the streaming service, people behind the scenes are keeping track of every single thing you watch – and they may call you out on your viewing habits in a press release.

The company has unveiled a new batch of binge-watching statistics from its users over the past year, and amid some interesting observations about the pacing of how viewers watch certain shows, they also take a minute to (anonymously) call out a couple of viewers, including one who watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl for 365 days in a row. (No word yet on whether that was Johnny Depp revisiting his glory days.)

Prime Video Apple TV

Good news for Apple TV users who long for the warm embrace of Amazon Prime Video: six months after Apple CEO Tim Cook assured users it would happen, Amazon Prime Video is now available on Apple TV. Yes, that’s correct: Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV is finally a reality. This decision will hopefully end a feud between Apple and Amazon, with Amazon refusing to sell Apple’s streaming box unless Apple TV made Prime Video available.

Black Mirror season 4 trailers

In addition to being one of the most gorgeously shot shows on television, Charlie Brooker‘s science fiction anthology series Black Mirror is also one of the most disturbing: its episodes are often punishingly bleak, bringing its audience to the brink of despair while offering searing commentary on our relationship with (and dependence on) technology. But while it’s not exactly “feel-good” TV, it’s also a really good show that manages to attract some of the world’s most talented filmmakers and actors to work on it.

So while part of me sort of dreads the idea of watching more, I know it’ll be worth it. It always is. And it won’t be long before new episodes will be upon us. Two new Black Mirror season 4 trailers have arrived, and you can watch them below.

The best Movies Streaming November

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

Break out the cranberry sauce: it’s almost time for Thanksgiving. Soon you’ll be forced to sit at a table with your family and have a conversation. How terrifying! My advice: skip all that and stream some movies. If your family complains, advise them to sit down and stream the movies along with you. It’s win-win! Also, bring beer.

You don’t have to force a conversation with movies; you just have to watch them. Isn’t that glorious? Of course, with the ever-growing list of streaming services out there, it can be hard to pick a specific film to watch for your own specific needs. But since I’m such a nice guy, and it is the season of giving, I went ahead and assembled a cornucopia of great films for you to stream in the next few days. There’s stuff(ing) here from David Lynch, Guillermo del Toro, Ryan Coogler, and more! We’ve got horror, family films, fantasy, romance, action – you name it! So get ready to binge on these films, but make sure you save room for leftovers. Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

Stranger Things 2 detail

The first season of Netflix’s Stranger Things ends with Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) leaving some Eggos in a box in the woods. The implication: he’s the only person who knows Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) survived her battle with the Demogorgon, and that’s going to factor into season 2 in a big way.

Those two characters have a unique relationship in the second season, and now the internet has spotted a Stranger Things 2 detail that deepens their connection even further.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

free amazon streaming service

Update: Amazon has released the following (very specifically worded) statement: “We have no plans to create a free, ad-supported version of Prime Video.” Our original article continues below.

***

Despite showcasing its fair share of acclaimed shows, Amazon continues to lag behind Netflix in the war for streaming domination. But to be fair, everyone continues to lag behind Netflix in that particular race.

So how do you compete with the biggest name in streaming and stand out in an increasingly crowded landscape? By creating a free, ad-supported streaming service, of course. And according to a new report, that’s exactly what Amazon is setting out to do.
