Foxtel V Netflix.... The Battle Begins! Mar 09 2015 Having Spent some time in America over the past few months, I have been watching how the Pay TV companies or "Cable" as its called, and the video streaming service, Netflix work and sit in the Market.

Foxtel V Netflix.... The Battle Begins!

In the last 10 days I have had the pleasure of staying with 2 different families in 2 different states. Louisiana and Texas. Let me tell you how they operate and I will then bring you back to the relevance of Foxtel and Netflix in the Australian market. So, first things first, lets get this straight. So, for the Family in Baton Rouge, they have cable. This was a real eye opener for me, as I am a big lover of technology and streamed media, including Netflix. Netflix wont have the content that they have in America due to licence agreements already in place.

Let me elaborate a little more on this. Then, depending on what NBN plan gets rolled out where, a lot of people may just not have the bandwidth to cope with Netflix. But that's just my opinion, I would love to hear yours. What you need to do watch Netflix. Apr 01 2015 So if you haven't heard, last week US Video Streaming Giant "Netflix" launched in Australia and I have had numerous people ask about receiving it on a TV.

What you need to do watch Netflix.

Its pretty obvious to get it on a computer, after all that's where you go to sign up. But surely its not a case of opening up Netflix on your computer and plugging your computer into your TV is it? No, definitely not! I mean yeah, you could do it that way, but that's a bit of a clumsy way to do it and inconvenient, unless of course you are running a Media Center type set up, but lets face it, not many people have that. So lets get to it..... Before I start, let me say that I am a big believer of using a wired connection to your devices where possible, Netflix has fantastic algorithms to stream on a low speed internet connection, but its not great on a WiFi connection that continues to drop off the network for any given reason. So what do you do? So back to business... items you can use to receive Netflix 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The Real Stats behind Netflix!

Mar 22 2015 So in my last blog I talked about how The US video streaming giant, Netflix is coming to Australia, and its launch is only days away.

The Real Stats behind Netflix!

There has been lots of media around it so far about how its going to go here and what sort of content it will have. Well let me give you some stats about how it going in the US, and you can decide for yourself. In the last quarter of last year, 40 percent of U.S. homes subscribe to a streaming service such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or Hulu. Cable ratings among adults fell 9 percent in 2014, three times the rate of decline over 2013 Between 2012 and 2014, viewers ages 50 through 64 watched one hour and 12 minutes less of traditional TV each week; they increased viewing of videos over the Internet by 22 minutes.
