Okay Disney, I signed up for your streaming so now bring back Daredevil

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that Netflix is a little trigger happy when it comes to cancelling its original shows. We’ve lost a lot of greats throughout the years, but one that certainly stung for me was Daredevil, which is a show that I would definitely place among the greatest superhero TV shows of all time. It was a real disappointment to lose it after only three seasons, when it really felt like Daredevil was hitting its stride.

Google TV Android app is mysteriously blocking Netflix

Google TV Android app is mysteriously blocking Netflix

As with its messaging services and, more recently, music streaming, Google's video entertainment strategy isn't exactly the most consistent. It has flip-flopped on that as well, and its latest attempt is just as confusing. Google TV, which refers to an app as well as an unrelated Android TV skin, tries to consolidate not just Google's own videos and movies but content from other sources as well. Those sources, however, have strangely lost one important member as users report Netflix's practical disappearance from the app.

Following the retirement of free trials here in the US, Netflix has revealed that it will soon be hiking its prices. The good news is that not everyone will see their monthly price go up, as Netflix's basic subscription will remain the same price.

Netflix free trials are no longer available

Netflix free trials are no longer available

It's not unusual for online services that require some payment be it a one-time purchase or a recurring subscription, to offer a free trial period. After all, unlike physical products you can touch and see, there is really no way to gauge digital products without trying them first. For a time, Netflix offered such trials in varying lengths but now it seems that the streaming service has become confident enough to ask new users for payment right from the start without even sampling the goods.

Pluto TV will offer free streaming of Netflix Original show Narcos

Viacom's free ad-supported streaming service Pluto TV will be offering its users access to one of Netflix's more popular original shows, Narcos. This is quite an unusual move for Netflix, which typically keeps its content strictly restricted to its own platform. The decision to offer reruns of this aging show on a free platform may be an effective marketing tactic, however, to lure in new subscribers.
