Netflix’s negotiations for Longmire tipped as successful

Netflix’s negotiations for Longmire tipped as successful

After Longmire's surprise cancellation by A&E, the producer behind it -- Warner Horizon -- began shopping it around in hopes that the large fan base would result in it being snapped up quickly elsewhere. Deadline had reported earlier this month both Amazon and Netflix were primary targets for the series, and that among the two Netflix was in serious talks about taking on the show -- something that wasn't surprising, considering the service offers its past seasons for streaming. Now the same folks are back again with new word from their sources, and if true, it's good news for fans.

Nielsen tipped in plan to monitor subscription video viewership

Nielsen tipped in plan to monitor subscription video viewership

Nielsen plans to start monitoring video streaming services' viewership numbers, shedding light on figures that have long been hidden from the public. Such information comes from the Wall Street Journal, which reports that it has viewed client documents related to the plan. The plan won't include tracking viewership habits that take place on mobile devices (for now, at least), but will use Nielsen meters to analyze audio for determining what shows are being watched on other devices. The resulting numbers could, among other things, help studios negotiating with the services.

Netflix will expand to Australia, New Zealand in March 2015

Netflix, taking a moment from its seemingly perpetual content revelations, has announced that it'll be getting a big expansion early next year, moving into Australia and New Zealand in March 2015. This follows the company's launch in France back in September -- a place where it hasn't entirely been welcomed -- and will likely in the same way include a mixture of locally-relevant content and the shows that span its global viewership. The video streaming service is remaining tight-lipped about pricing, however, saying it'll announce that sometime in the future.

Netflix tipped in negotiations for Longmire

In August the surprise revelation was made that A&E would be cancelling series Longmire after its third season, something that caused an outcry amongst the show's hefty fan base.

According to these unnamed sources, the negotiations have been "tricky", and they might not pan out.

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.
