Degrassi

Back in olden times, a cancelled show’s best shot at salvation was another network — and if none of them wanted the show, it was just screwed. With the proliferation of streaming services hungry for original content, though, we’ve seen more and more series get axed by traditional broadcast or cable networks, only to find a second life online.

Case in point: Canadian teen drama Degrassi has become the latest show to get un-cancelled by Netflix, after getting the axe from TeenNick last week. More on the Netflix Degrassi resurrection after the jump.  Read More »

original Fantastic Four movies

Fans who were planning on rewatching the Fantastic Four movies from 2005 and 2007 had better find physical copies. 20th Century Fox has removed the film from two of the world’s leading streaming sites, Amazon and iTunes. The reason isn’t malicious. They simply don’t want fans to get confused when they hopefully start to look for information on the Fantastic Four reboot that opens August 7, directed by Josh Trank.

Bummer: Netflix Is Testing Advertisements

Netflix series Montauk

One of the glorious benefits of a Netflix subscription is its lack of advertising. For an eminently reasonable rate of $7.99/month, you can plow through hundreds or even thousands of hours of video without a single commercial break. But that may be about to change.

The streaming service has reportedly begun experimenting with showing ads before and after videos. Whether those ads will eventually roll out to the entire subscriber base is still unclear. More about the possible Netflix ads after the jump.  Read More »

Netflix bandwidth usage

Bandwidth is the last thing on our mind when using the Internet. We watch a video or download a photo, and never think about the fact there’s a a huge flow of data behind it that people are using. An even bigger concept is the data flow of the entirety of the Internet. That’s so much data and bandwidth that it’s almost impossible to fathom.

So what’s even crazier than the bandwidth figures for the entire Internet? How much of it Netflix uses. A new study revealed that, at peak hours during March 2015 in North America, Netflix accounted for up to 37% of all Internet usage. That’s over a third of data flowing through the Internet.
