    Netflix adds 8.8M paid subscribers globally, says it now accounts for 10 percent of US TV screen time

    Netflix just released its fourth quarter earnings report, which looks mixed compared to Wall Street expectations. The company added 8.8 million subscribers, well above the 7.6 million that it had predicted at the beginning of the quarter. It also beat estimates for earnings per share — analysts had predicted EPS of 24 cents, but actual EPS came in at 30 cents. However, revenue was a bit lower than expected — $4.19 billion, compared to predictions of $4.21 billion.

    Netflix says more 'choose your own adventure' shows are on the way after the success of 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch'

    The choose-your-own adventure format of "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch" was a novelty when Netflix debuted the movie last month. But it'll soon become a lot more common, if the streaming video giant has anything to say about it. "You should anticipate we'll do more of those [interactive shows] as we start to explore that format," Greg Peters, Netflix's chief product officer, said on a webcast Thursday following the company's fourth-quarter earnings report.

    Netflix Announces Biggest Price Increase Ever

    Netflix is raising its U.S. prices by 13 percent to 18 percent, its biggest increase since the company launched its streaming service 12 years ago. Its most popular plan will see the largest hike, to $13 per month from $11. That option offers high-definition streaming on up to two different internet-connected devices simultaneously. Even at the higher price, that plan is still a few dollars cheaper than HBO, whose streaming service charges $15 per month.

    2019 is the year the streaming wars get real

    For cord cutters and streaming lovers, 2019 will mean two things: A raft of new streaming services will hit the scene, and users will see major changes to viewing libraries. Two major new streaming services will launch this year from Disney (DIS) and WarnerMedia, the parent company of CNN. That means more movies, TV shows and originals, but also greater stratification.

    Netflix Won't Film TV Show in North Carolina Due to State's Anti-LGBTQ Law

    North Carolina's controversial legislation is impacting Hollywood's decision to film in the state. Netflix has opted to film its upcoming North Carolina-set series OBX, a coming-of-age drama set in a fictional town in North Carolina's Outer Banks, in South Carolina instead due to remnants of North Carolina's anti-LGBTQ House Bill 2. Best known as "the bathroom bill," the law requires transgender people use the public restrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate. The legislation first drew criticism when it was enacted in 2016, with some studios even pulling their projects out of the state.

    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch's cereal choice was originally way more significant

    Black Mirror’s interactive, mind-bending movie Bandersnatch has been causing all sorts of moral dilemmas for its viewers, who have to endlessly make choices on behalf of game designer Stefan (Fionn Whitehead) and take him on a dark and bloody path. It isn’t life or death all the way through, mind you. The first choice offered is simply whether you’d prefer Sugar Puffs or Frosties for breakfast – seemingly an easy decision to get viewers used to how Bandersnatch works.

    On Netflix Pulling Out of iTunes Billing for New Users

    This is a big deal. Netflix is the top-grossing app in the App Store in the U.S. They might remain the top-grossing app, even, because users who have already signed up with iTunes billing can keep doing so. But it really tells you how fractious Apple’s relationship is with content providers if the most successful one on the platform stops supporting it. And keep in mind that Netflix has long had a special relationship with Apple, with an 85/15 cut from the start, not just after a year.

    Netflix announced on New Year's Day that "Stranger Things" will return on July 4, pushing up audience interest. Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the seven most "in-demand" TV shows on streaming services. The data is based on "demand expressions," the globally standardized TV demand measurement unit from Parrot Analytics. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or download is a higher expression of demand than a "like" or comment on social media.

    'Black Mirror' Creator Charlie Brooker Shares Season 5 Update

    Black Mirror creator and writer Charlie Brooker told The Hollywood Reporter that making Bandersnatch was like making four episodes of the sci-fi anthology series at once and that, as a result, the forthcoming fifth season has been pushed back. "We knew going into it that it would be difficult and challenging and more complicated than a normal film that we would do. Even then, we underestimated," Brooker elaborates to THR. "As the story expanded, I like to say that the story got longer and it got wider. So the whole thing started expanding a bit like an inflatable life raft in a small room."

In a relatively short amount of time, Netflix has transformed itself into a streaming powerhouse filled to the brim with a wide array of original content. These days, people are more likely to think of Netflix as a place to watch original TV shows like Stranger Things than as a place to enjoy hit movies.

    Charlie Cox wasn’t ready to say goodbye to Matt Murdock. For more than four years, the actor starred on Daredevil as the Catholic-guilt-ridden vigilante, and he helped pave the way for the launches of Netflix’s subsequent street-level Marvel series: Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and the team-up miniseries The Defenders. But despite Daredevil being one of the streamer’s most popular shows and the fact that its writers had begun breaking a fourth season, Netflix pulled the plug on the superhero drama.
