Is Curious George on Netflix? Nope. He is on Hulu now

In the relatively recent past, you, a parent of a child, may have watched endless hours of Curious George on your streaming device. With Netflix, perhaps - the 2006 film Curious George became a part of Netflix back in June of 2015.

All of the episodes of Curious George, just like you've always dreamed of.

Marvel’s Luke Cage makes Netflix debut in September

Things are heating up on Netflix, at least as far as Marvel content is concerned.

Netflix may be negotiating to stream BBC’s new Top Gear

We already know that the new car show from Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May — essentially the "new" Top Gear — has found a home on Amazon's streaming video service, and that the BBC's reboot of the "old" Top Gear will debut on the UK network in late May with a new set of hosts. But about when it comes time for this iteration of Top Gear to head to streaming services? If a new report from The Guardian is correct, Netflix is already making early bids for the show's rights.

New on Netflix in March: list of all movies and TV shows added this month

For March of 2016, Netflix is adding a whole slew of new programming - movies and TV shows alike. Should we even call them TV shows anymore? Maybe more like "flix" - streamable shows of all sorts. In this batch you'll find a bit batch being released on the 1st, then a few here and there for the rest of the month, just a few at a time. If you're waiting for Sunshine Superman, you'll be waiting until the 31st.

Netflix fights back against VPN users, but at what cost?

It's been a while since Netflix declared war on customers who use VPNs and other means to access content outside of their country. So far, their efforts have lead to a few VPN providers having their IPs blocked, but that only lasted for a few days at most. Even with a little help from Paypal, their efforts appeared to be in vain. However, over the weekend, the tides appear to have shifted.

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

This hasn't been a great year for Doctor Who fans. It's the first time since the series was rebooted that will get no new episodes, save for the Christmas Special. It'll be sometime in 2017 before we see regular episodes return, and as a kicker, the show was pulled from both Netflix and Hulu. This means that it is currently not streaming anywhere that's accessible in the US. But that's about to change.
