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

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. Details on the series were dropped way back in January alongside the promise that we'd be seeing the episodes arrive late in the year. All of that is spot on and the plans are still in place, and Netflix is getting it subscribers ready by publishing the first teaser trailer ahead of the series' December 12 debut.

Verizon tests bundle that includes 1yr of Netflix

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?!

Netflix’s 4k streaming prices climb for new users

Netflix has busied itself with a myriad of projects, many of the most recent ones revolving around theatrical movies that will either exclusively appear on the video service, or will launch on the service at the same time as traditional cinemas. That hasn't sat well with many in the industry, but consumers have expressed excitement about the shift in how entertainment is delivered. What consumers might be less excited about, however, is the newest change that Netflix has been very quiet about.

Ubuntu’s native Netflix support arrives as promised

Ubuntu’s native Netflix support arrives as promised

Native Netflix support on Linux has been a long-running wish among users, and though methods have been around to get the service to work, none were as simple as firing up your browser and getting right into the movies, no hassle necessary. Last month news that a change was afoot surfaced, with Netflix's Paul Adolph asking questions and saying that, if certain wheels could be put in motion, he'd bring up a case for nixing the user agent filtering that foiled users.
