Netflix’s ‘Bloodline’ gets its first trailer

As we've previously mentioned, Netflix will be releasing another original series called 'Bloodline' on March 20, and ahead of that debut is the series' first trailer. Netflix released the trailer on its YouTube account on Monday, and during its two or so minutes, we're given a decent enough look at show, with the focus being mostly on the family and its drama. The trailer is wrapped up neatly with the series' hook: "We're not bad people, we just did a bad thing."

Disney may offer Marvel, Star Wars video streaming plans

The recent introduction of Dish Network's Sling TV has rocked the television industry, and for obvious reasons: subscribers can watch live channels like ESPN over their Internet on whatever connected device they have, something that has been long dreamed of by cord-cutters and those tired of traditional cable. Some networks have followed this up with plans to provide streaming subscriptions through which their own content can be streamed -- Viacom, for example, recently revealed that Nickelodeon will be doing just that.

Netflix says it’ll be available in Japan in Fall 2015

Netflix is a force to be reckoned with, and there's no sign of that slowing down.

Netflix revealed in the recent past that it'll be arriving in Australia and New Zealand next month (though there's debate about how effective that will be), and likewise the service arrived in France last year. Now it has set focus on Japan.

Nickelodeon to introduce its own video subscription service

As consumers continue to drop traditional cable in favor of various video streaming services, some companies and networks are (finally) accepting reality and getting on board with their own offerings. HBO announced its own video subscription service plans in the recent past, and consumers recently scored another option with the introduction of Sling TV. Viacom, which has notoriously been picky about where and when its shows are available online, is about to do its own dabbling in the world of video subscription services, and it'll be doing so through Nickelodeon.

YouTube matures, uses HTML5 video by default

YouTube matures, uses HTML5 video by default

Further driving the obsolescence of technology like Flash, Google is announcing that YouTube will default to using HTML5 video by default, at least on the most recent versions of major browsers. While it might take some time before the web is truly rid of Flash, it is a brave move forward especially for a service that is absolutely reliant on the smooth and flawless delivery of multimedia content. It also shows how much the web has grown up to replace the benefits once provided only by the likes of Flash.

Amazon opens “Transparent” series to everyone for one day

Netflix has dominated public attention when it comes to original series, but competitor Amazon has scored its first big series' win with Transparent, a cleverly named series that touches on some heavy issues through a series of characters including Maura. The series has been available for a little while now on Amazon's own video service, and it has found favor with viewers -- so much so that it scored a couple of Golden Globe awards this month. In celebration of that, Amazon is removing that paywall for a single day, allowing anyone to watch the show.

YouTube to air its own Super Bowl halftime show

The Super Bowl is known for its (sometimes) amusing advertisements, and they tend to rake in the viewers -- both during the show and afterward on YouTube, where many go to re-watch their favorite ads and others go to catch the ones they missed. YouTube isn't letting this Super Bowl advertisement lust go to waste this year, and has revealed that it will be offering its own halftime show, which will be starring the service's own top stars. The halftime show will include fake Super Bowl advertisements, and the entire ordeal will be streamed live on the video service during the Super Bowl next month.

Netflix to lose Discovery, Hasbro shows due to contract dispute

Netflix to lose Discovery, Hasbro shows due to contract dispute

Netflix has failed to strike new contract agreements with Hasbro and Discovery, according to multiple reports, and as a result the video streaming service will be pulling content from both once the current contract runs out. This includes popular series' like My Little Pony, Transformers, and some other children's content. It appears it is possible the shows could end up remaining if deals can be struck, but as of now that is looking unlikely and Netflix's kids' content will be shrinking.
