While they go at it in public, in private they're conspiring to loot you. You'll know they've made up when you get the bill.

The longest of which is spent complaining about the lack of content on Netflix, which just goes to show he's probably never even used the service.

Can't take him seriously since he doesn't like OITNB.

Pretty much that. When he says "I'm not into Orange is the New Black, so that doesn't leave much" it's pretty obvious he's never bothered to do more than glance at the front page after logging into Netflix. There's shiat loads of stuff on there. I'll grant you it's an entire world better with TV shows than movies, but still if you can't find something to watch on Netflix, it's your own damn fault.

I know this is fark, but that wasn't an article. That was some dude's short, boring and uninsightful commentary. That told us nothing that frequent articles everywhere else haven't covered in greater detail.

There's stuff in my queue that I've been meaning to watch for years now and still haven't gotten around to it.  Then again, I have maybe 2-3 hours a day for passive TV watching.

If I added it all up, there's probably more hours still to watch in my queue than I could finish in one year's worth of vacation time.  Not to mention the new stuff that pops up once a month.

/and yes, I do watch "Orange" and most of the Netflix original stuff too.

So...this old information was greenlit because of the cartoon?
 
2014-06-13 04:11:56 PM
So Netflix got the message that paying ISPs to not strangle their streaming speeds probably wasn't going to be very profitable?
 
2014-06-13 04:14:21 PM
Verizon built a VoD business concept on the hotel mini-bar model, where you'll pay $12 for a Toblerone for the convenience of not going out. Then Netflix, Hulu and Amazon came out with unlimited streaming libraries. Now people don't click the $5 on demand movies, and it means bonuses aren't getting paid to executives.

Really, someone who doesn't like Orange is the New Black is someone I don't care to listen to. His taste is obviously very poor.

Any American who complains about the lack of content of US Netflix clearly has never used Netflix Canada.

/Though we just got Batman: The Animated Series.

I seem to spend more time looking for something I both haven't seen before and also looks interesting than I actually do watching content. I think it just depends on your definition of what's entertaining. You probably just have much broader interests than some of us. (And no, I don't intend that statement as an "you're easily entertained" insult. If anything, I probably need to try broadening my horizons. I tend to think of it more as "I know what I like and River Monsters just isn't it.)

I've enjoyed most of their original content, so so now I only a month at a time here and there and binge watch.

I got 2 episodes in because everyone ranted and raved.

Aside from the tons of hot tits, it was just farking painful. It was nothing but middle class pretty white women biatching about how HARD it is to be middle classed white and pretty, and how much it just SUCKS to have to go to jail. Like it was written by a high school girl and then had a bunch of 'oh we're not on cable' producers throw in tits.

I think Netflix is goading Verizon to sue Netflix. The entertainment value of discovery would be priceless.

This x2.
 
2014-06-13 07:34:06 PM
On second thought, the discovery process would probably dig up things along the lines of, "Oh, you bought forty five thousand dollars worth of paper shredders two weeks before you decided to sue."

Netflix doesn't have content you say?  Nonsense!

You want a show about say a Korean doctor transported back in time?  Good news. You have a choice between two.

Because its an American service they can't afford a lot of the good American shows.
(No one can afford to buy them because there is too much demand -Yogi B.)

I bet korean netflix is filled with the Simpsons.

Does Netflix have Downtown's Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende?

Just to preemptively answer the question, "What is Gaki no Tsukai?"

Eh?  Why would content be different up north -- something to do with licensing agreements, arrangements with cable providers?

It gets better.  After a couple episodes they basically forget about her and do some great character drama with some of the other ladies backstories.  Unfortunately she makes a comeback on season 2.

Yeah licensing and distribution rights. Also, our version of the FCC, the CRTC, mandates that every content provider have a certain percentage of Canadian produced content.

So yeah, Canadian radio station are legally forced to play Justin Beiber and Drake every 27 minutes.*

* Slightly exaggerated. Slightly.

This is the first time I've ever felt sorry for Canadians.  Do you have internet streaming music services up there to save your sanity?

Just wrapped up a marathon viewing of season two, so getting a kick and all that. Love all the back stories this season. Piper gets on my nerves, but I realize she is me aka the average viewer. She thinks she gets it, but she never really will.
