Netflix Arrives At Virgin Media

Netflix has been rapidly growing over the last few years, so much so that the video-on-demand program has begun receiving worldwide attention. Recently, a contract with the company has allowed Virgin Media subscribers in the United Kingdom to access the TV and movie streaming service right from the comfort of their TiVo boxes, after an informative survey determined that the program would be met with popular success.

Many expect that, within the next few days, Netflix will become available and will work in conjunction with Virgin Media’s preexisting variety of available content. This gives TiVo owners a far easier way to access exclusive titles that are only available on Netflix, such as Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, and Arrested Development. Additionally, in order to draw in TiVo owners who have not yet signed up with Netflix, the company is offering a six month Netflix free trial period for current customers who are enjoying VIP or Premier subscriptions.

This type of deal affects both the company and the consumer in a positive way. Virgin Media has the opportunity to expand the value of its TiVo setup and keep their customers interested in their platform, while the customers are more likely to explore the various live TV and enjoy the numerous on demand programs and content available. By including Netflix in the business arrangements, they are able to showcase their services to a wider audience, and help draw more widespread attention to their streaming potential throughout the United Kingdom.

This fall it seemed like you couldn’t leave the house without overhearing someone talking about AMC’s show Breaking Bad.

AMC has been known to run marathons of their popular shows, especially during holidays. The problem with trying to catch up with a series this way is it means you have to watch the episodes at a certain time, when AMC airs them. This is great if you don’t have to work or any other plans when the marathon is airing. For most people, even the most dedicated viewer is usually not able to schedule their time this way.

If you don’t have access to AMC through your cable or satellite provider, another option would be to go out and purchase the Breaking Bad DVD box sets. Owning the DVDs means you can watch an episode any time. The downside is you have to purchase a lot of expensive DVDs which may not make a lot of sense if you are the type of person who rarely goes back and watches television shows multiple times. Not only that, you either have to drive around from store to store trying to find the seasons you need, or pay shipping costs to order them online.

The best way to watch Breaking Bad is through Netflix. With a Netflix free trial, you can watch every single episode of Walter White’s adventures without having to pay anything. Best of all, Netflix gives the viewer total control over how and when you want to watch. The series is divided by seasons with individual episode names and numbers. With the Netflix marathon feature, the you can watch multiple episodes back to back without having to press anything. Or if you have limited time, you can stop an episode at any time. You can even pause in the middle of an episode and when you return to Netflix your place will be saved for you. Not only that, but Netflix gives you the freedom to watch Breaking Bad on multiple devices. You don’t have to tied in front of a computer or TV screen to witness Walter White’s transformation into Heisenberg. With Netflix you can stream shows to a variety of tablets, video game consoles, BluRay players and more.

Whether you are new to the show or just need to catch up on some episodes you missed, Netflix is the best way to watch Breaking Bad. You get total control and every episode is available in full HD quality. Best of all with Netflix’s free trial, it won’t cost you a thing. That’s money saved that you could put towards an RV, some lab equipment or maybe just leave the chemistry to the guys on TV. Sign up for your Netflix free trial and start watching Breaking Bad today.

Watch ‘Derek’ On Netflix

It is sometimes a chore to keep up with technology for those of us lacking expertise with electronics. Here is some good news for us. Netflix streaming network is the most uncomplicated way ever to watch a video. In fact, this is an opportunity to try it free and experience a notable new show. Beginning soon it will be available as a Netflix free dvd trial offer. The show stars Ricky Gervais as the namesake of the series, ‘Derek’.

This comedy/drama places Derek as a devoted caregiver in an English convalescent home. He’s a bit idiosyncratic, an animal lover and follower of Jesus. He has a lighthearted attitude and an endearing preference to seek only the most positive elements in others. Lack of funding is a constant battle at the nursing home. But it is only one conflict with which Derek wrestles. The nearly 50 year old unattached attendant is dedicated to the patients, his off-the-wall friends and unique co-workers. They too endure obstacles in their lives, injustice, discrimination, and of course the hierarchy.

In spite of Derek’s unpolished skills and lack of expertise in dealing with management, he plunges ahead to protect the residents from being pushed out and his friends from losing their jobs. His sincerity and respect for the vulnerable senior citizens makes this show radiate with good cheer. Somewhat impetuous, sometimes poignant and tear jerking, Derek is funny, serious and a bit whimsical at times. There is entertainment for everyone, without a doubt, in this show.

Roku + Netflix = Instant Movies on your TV

Netflix Shares Jump

Netflix closed the fourth quarter in excellent fashion. They posted revenues and subscriber numbers significantly higher than estimates by analysts. Investors responded in after hours trading by driving the stock price up by 25 percent.

In its fourth-quarter 2012 Netflix earnings report, the company noticed a large revnue increase. One year ago,revenue was $876 milllion. This year, it was $945 million for the quarter. It also reported Netflix earnings of 13 cents share. That was well above analyst expectations for a loss of $0.12 a share.

As in previous quarters, much of Wall Street’s focus is on Netflix’s subscriber growth domestically. The fourth quarter is typically the biggest for adding new users. New subscribers sign up during the holidays because they receive new, Netflix-compatible gifts. Netflix added 2 million U.S. new subscribers for the quarter, compared to 220,000 in the prior year’s fourth quarter. Its own forecast was 1.3 million new adds during the period.

Netflix said its improved domestic subscriber numbers were considerable because of new users and connected devices in the quarter, as well as improved retention. Netflix continues to keep subscribers through continued growth in the content amount viewed by each member. It expects to carry this subscriber momentum into the first quarter.

Overseas, Netflix added 1.8 million new subscribers, bringing its total customer count overseas to 6.1 million. International revenue increased to over $100 million for the quarter. Netflix expects losses to decline as new subscribers grow beyond content costs.

All of that good news shows that Netflix is once again in the good graces of investors. The company often sees volatile trading over an earnings report similar to what we are seeing today.
