The Economics Of Subscription Prices

14th February 2019

Jumping from the traditional $10 bucks a month, the regular Canadian consumer will have to pay $13 for the same service and an additional three if they want the upgraded version. The price hikes are still substantial to most people, but it’s still the cheapest on the market. The other competitor in Canada is Bell Aliant which charges $20 a month for their video streaming service. Other competitors are joining…


Every new show and movie on Hulu: February 2019

30th January 2019

February is nearly here and Hulu has got some fantastic shows and films coming. Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, I must recommend you watch one of the greatest rom-coms ever written, Four Weddings and a Funeral. Or you can check out one of my other favorite romances, the Cher and Nicolas Cage masterpiece that is Moonstruck. If you’re not feeling the romantic vibe, and you’d prefer a good heist film, you may…


Game of Thrones final season now has a premiere date, new teaser

14th January 2019

On Sunday, HBO finally announced the premiere date for the final season of Game of Thrones. The network also released a tantalizing teaser video called Crypts of Winterfell. In the video, Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark walk through the crypts under their family home and hear messages from dead family members Ned and Catelyn Stark as well as Lyanna Stark, who of course is Ned’s sister/the mother Jon…


The 9 best Netflix shows you’ve never heard of

9th January 2019

The sheer volume of new and original content that hits Netflix every month is absolutely staggering. To be quite honest, it’s practically impossible to keep up with all of the new content that arrives on Netflix every month unless you’re watching TV 24/7. As a prime example, this month alone will see Netflix debut 38 new original TV series and movies. With Netflix literally spending billions on developing new content…


2019 Golden Globes: the complete list of winners

7th January 2019

The Golden Globes have ushered in the beginning of a new awards-show season, with feature films including Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and Roma winning top prizes. This year’s award show felt a little off pacing-wise, but there weren’t too many surprising wins or losses.

With Christmas just two weeks away, there couldn’t be a better time to heat up some popcorn and settle in for a festive movie. Here are a few of the best (and worst) Christmas movies Netflix has to offer, in no particular order. Bear in mind these will vary by country, so you may not have access to them all in your region. 1. The Christmas Chronicles (2018) This Netflix…


MoviePass forcing users to choose between two movies a day at odd hours

6th October 2018

After announcing a price increase and then immediately reversing it at the end of July, MoviePass spent yet another weekend making headlines for all the wrong reasons. According to a New York Post report, the service crashed once again on Friday, but before it went down, users discovered that they were only being offered two possible screenings: the poorly-reviewed Slender Man and Mission: Impossible – Fallout at inconvenient hours. The…


The 10 best new movies and TV shows coming to Netflix in October 2018

4th October 2018

After a stellar September packed with great content, I’m convinced I’m not going to have trouble coming up with ten worthwhile shows and movies for this list ever again. The sheer volume of content that arrives on Netflix every month is becoming difficult to quantify, with more original content than ever filling up the service week after week. And while quality licensed movies continue to vanish from the service, Netflix…


Why Netflix’s Maniac Won’t Be Returning For Season 2

1st October 2018

Netflix’s limited series Maniac has been a hit with many, and it’s easy to see why. The inventive Netflix original stars two Hollywood A-listers (Jonah Hill and Emma Stone), and is directed by True Detective‘s Cary Fukunaga, who is red hot right now after the recent announcement he’ll be helming the next James Bond film. Audiences seem to want more Maniac, and with all these big names attached, it’s silly…


All The Shows Netflix Has Canceled

25th September 2018

Netflix has become major competition for cable and other streaming networks, and that’s in part thanks to the quality content the subscription service delivers. And while it’s sad to see certain shows go away, the streaming service wouldn’t have room for new shows (Netflix plans to release 700 new shows and movies by the end of 2018 alone) if it didn’t ax others along the way. Since launching in 2007, Netflix…
