    21 Oscar-Winning Movies You Can Watch On Netflix

    With Oscar nominations right around the corner, you may want to revisit a few Academy Award winners of the past. Netflix makes this easy, with a whole category dedicated to “Oscar-winning movies.” Below are 21 standouts from that retrospective category. But I should also mention that Netflix’s own “Roma” is a front-runner for Best Picture (nominees will be announced Jan. 22 and the awards ceremony is Feb. 24). Although it hasn’t won an Oscar yet, you should stream that beautiful movie right along with the already certified winners.

Written by series creator Charlie Brooker and directed by David Slade, the film tells the story of young programmer Stefan Butler, who is adapting a fantasy choose-your-own-adventure novel called Bandersnatch into a video game.

    Netflix Expected to Spend as Much as $15 Billion on Content This Year

    As you’ve surely noticed by now, Netflix boasts an ever-expanding library of original movies and TV series. “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened,” “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch,” and “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” are just some of the conversation starters to premiere on the streaming giant in recent weeks, and they have something in common: They all cost money to acquire and/or produce. So much, in fact, that Netflix spent $12 billion on content in 2018 — and, according to Wall Street analysts (per Variety), could see that number rise as high as $15 billion this year.

    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.

    'The First,' Starring Sean Penn, Canceled at Hulu

    Hulu's big-budget space drama The First has been permanently grounded. The streamer has opted to cancel the Sean Penn-led drama from creator Beau Willimon after one season. The drama, which marked Penn's first TV series regular role, launched in September to lackluster reviews. The Hollywood Reporter's chief TV critic Daniel Fienberg said in his review that the series — about a Mars expedition — had "its eyes on the heavens but its feet on the ground" as The First was more of an exploration of what it takes to get to space than time in orbit.

    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.

    The top 7 shows on Netflix and other streaming services this week

    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.

    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.

    Best Streaming Video Services 2019

Our favorite service overall is Netflix, offering an excellent selection of TV shows, movies and original programming. If you need something a little cheaper, however, Hulu is a worthwhile alternative, and a few dollars less expensive — if you're willing to sit through some commercials, that is.

Seriously, we think “Verge TV” sounds like a great idea. Please check out our YouTube channel. And our existing trademark for The Verge. If it’s not just a re-brand, Verge TV would be AT&T’s third streaming TV service, following DirecTV Now and the launch of WatchTV in 2018.

    '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."

    Netflix Original Series Viewing Climbs, but Licensed Content Remains Majority of Total U.S. Streams

    Is Netflix moving fast enough to bulk up on originals to offset programming that’s about to get pulled by studios like Disney, Fox and WarnerMedia? Original content accounted for 37% of Netflix’s U.S. streams in October 2018, up from 24% a year earlier (and just 14% in January 2017), per video-measurement firm 7Park Data. But that means the majority (63%) of Netflix’s viewing is still from licensed content.
