Mitt header

It’s hard to believe that it was just over a year ago when Barack Obama’s re-election to the White House dashed Mitt Romney‘s hopes of becoming the next President of the United States. While his former running mate Paul Ryan has remained a vocal presence in the House of Representatives, Romney himself has almost completely faded from public view.

But Netflix is taking a look back at the man with MittGreg Whiteley‘s documentary about Romney’s lengthy battle for the presidency. While we all know the eventual outcome, it’s still a fascinating inside look at a side of the politician we never go to know — probably to his detriment. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Turbo

So far, one of the ways that Netflix has differed from traditional TV is its model of distribution. Netflix typically releases a whole season at once, rather than parceling episodes out over the course of several weeks or months. But as the streaming service moves into children’s programming, they’re looking to shake up their approach.

Netflix is launching its first original series for kids, DreamWorks Animation’s Turbo FAST, with just five episodes slated to hit Christmas Eve. Learn more about their plans for the show, and watch the first trailer, after the jump.

Anyone who still doubts Netflix is the next iteration of HBO need only look at the parallels, which continue to fall in line.

HBO began as a platform for people to watch movies on a new technology called cable TV. Netflix did the same thing on the Internet. HBO then began producing original movies, which helped to define the channel. Netflix started with television shows, but those have done the same. From there HBO moved into original shows and have since become one of the most celebrated channels in the world. Netflix already has shows, so what’s next?

You guessed it. Netflix is now beginning to look at producing original movies to go along with their original serialized programming. All original programming, though, will only get better and more prevalent in the future as they’ll be doubling their spending in the coming year. Read More »

As convenient as Netflix is, it does have its downsides. One is the lack of “extras” for any of its titles. If you want deleted scenes, directors’ commentaries, blooper reels, or behind-the-scenes videos, you’re better off grabbing the actual Blu-ray or DVD.

But if a new experiment by Netflix goes well, we may have one less reason to cling to physical media. Todd Yellin, Netflix’s VP of product innovation, has revealed that the company may test bonus features for its original content like House of Cards or Orange Is the New Black. More about Netflix’s plans after the jump.
