House of Cards Season 5 release date revealed

House of Cards Season 5 release date revealed

Netflix had some good news last year — House of Cards was coming back for a fifth season — and then some bad news: that season’s launch was delayed and no firm release date was provided. We initially expected to see Season 5 drop in the first quarter of this year, but Netflix revealed a couple days ago that fans will have to wait until some time between April and June before they get the next season. That has now been clarified with a hard launch date.

The series first debuted on Crackle, Sony's free (ad-supported) video streaming service. While Crackle was a great destination in the sense that anyone could watch it, many people don't like Sony's offering, and its audience pales in comparison to Netflix.

Apple’s original content bid to try Netflix strategy for Music

It would appear that Apple is attempting to use Netflix's success story with original content as a template for their music business.

Netflix movie list January 2017 – what’s new, what’s done

Netflix users are preparing their minds for the possibility that January will be an end-time for some of their favorite movies and episodic series.

Net Neutrality – Why it should matter to you

Net Neutrality – Why it should matter to you

Before this year’s presidential elections became the major factor dividing the US tech industry, it was “net neutrality” that split camps along lines of for or against.

The net neutrality debates are about to be reignited and, whichever side of the camp you stand on, the results will inevitably affect everyone.

You see, as Netflix sees it, Full House (or Fuller House) is the perfect jumping-off point for a new kind of connected toy.
