Netflix puts up clever GIF posters that mirror the weather

Your daily Internet browsing likely involves at least a GIF or two, and communication is quickly incorporating the animation snippets as visual alternatives to words. It makes sense, then, for someone to try out an advertisement campaign that brings these GIFs to the nearest street corner, and it isn't surprising Netflix would be the company to do it. Given its vast library of videos, Netflix has no shortage of clips to choose from, and it is using them in a creative way.

Movie watching just got easier with “What Is On Netflix”

Movie watching just got easier with “What Is On Netflix”

It's a common plight: you fire up Netflix and start scrolling, and scrolling, and scrolling...and you can't find anything decent to watch. It seems like most of the shows have disappointing ratings, and you've already binged on the latest releases. This usually leads to a bunch of other websites, where you hunt down "Top Ten" lists and similar charts in search of a movie worthy of taking up your free time. That ends up being a huge waste of time, sometimes returning something decent, somethings not.

Netflix releases first “Marco Polo” trailer

With all of Netflix's announcements over the past couple months, you may have forgotten the series it revealed at the start of the year: Marco Polo.

Verizon tests bundle that includes 1yr of Netflix

Despite all of its battling this year, Verizon and Netflix have cozied up to each other, at least as far as business is concerned. The service provider has initiated a very limited test during which it is offering a small number of its subscribers the opportunity to sign up for a package that includes a free year of Netflix service. This follows the drawn out debacle between Netflix and Verizon in which the latter company's customers saw severely throttled speeds on Netflix -- something that was quickly solved when the video streaming company gave in and entered into an agreement with Verizon.

Netflix reveals “F is for Family” animated series inbound

Did you expect anything less? Netflix has announced yet another upcoming show, this one being Bill Burr's animated series "F is for Family." The show is said to revolve around Burr's comedy, taking place in the 70s when all sorts of things banned today were commonplace ("a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport," Netflix points out). Each episode will be 30 minutes long, and The Simpsons writer Michael Price is on-board.

Netflix and Rogers partner up on next original series

Canada is getting some love from Netflix, and the end result will be yet another original series, this one called Between. The show has a survivalist slant, and revolves around a city that has been ravaged by an odd disease that kills those above 22 years of age. This will join the company's other recent pushes for more original content, including the announcement that it will be working on some movies with Adam Sandler, launching a second Crouching Tiger movie, and that it has nabbed the series Peaky Blinders.

CBS All Access streams against HBO/Netflix with commercials

CBS All Access streams against HBO/Netflix with commercials

Just in case you heard that CBS was going to sneak up on Netflix and yesterday’s big reveal of HBO’s streaming service, think again. CBS All Access, as they’re calling it, has quite a few caveats to get over before it’ll be sneaking up on any competing service. First, and perhaps most important, they’ll be continuing to show commercials during your viewing of shows even after you’ve paid for their service. Advertisements on your already paid-for service. What is this, Hulu Plus?!
