There's a new service that anyone who relies on Netflix as a daily source of entertainment will not be able to live without.

The most recent season premiere for the AMC series Mad Men brought in a whopping 3.5 million viewers. That's not too shabby for a basic cable show, especially when you compare it to last year's season opener. That episode pulled in around 2.3 million viewers.

But if you want to stream a movie, check in with what's up on your friend's wall, tune into Internet radio, or find out what the weather's like, you have to change your TV to some sort of Internet-connected device like a game console or third-party set-top box.

Netflix Web-based video player gets massive redesign

If you're like me, you remember the day that Netflix's streaming video service first launched. And at that time, you would shut off the TV and spend hours watching movies and TV shows on your computer. Now, though, there are millions of people who no doubt have a Netflix streaming subscription and have never even watched any content from the confines of their computer.

BBC will stream every single minute of the Olympics

One undeniable trend about the Olympics over the last eight years is that its presence in online and mobile platforms has absolutely exploded. In 2004, NBC launched a mobile website dedicated to people wanting to check out the latest medal counts and breaking news on their phone, but it was little more than truncated text and a few tiny images.
