Over the weekend, Netflix announced the service would be losing lots of big ticket blockbusters next month. Within hours, Hulu announced it would be scooping up those very movies. The streaming wars continue.


YouTube Wants To Get Into Eyewitness News 

YouTube doesn’t want to give you a reason to turn on CNN. The Google-owned video hosting site is trying to legitimise eyewitness accounts of breaking news by launching YouTube Newswire, a special feed for footage it verifies as accurate.


Netflix Has Over 76,897 Ways To Describe Movies

So it’s a lazy day and you just wanna Netflix a movie. But what kind of movie? A “visually striking Latin American comedy?” Maybe a “critically-acclaimed emotional underdog movie?” Suddenly, you’re locked in option paralysis, and as The Atlantic figured out, you’ve got a ridiculous 76,897 unique genres to blame.


Trekkies, Rejoice: Stan Now Has Every Episode Of Deep Space Nine

Even though Star Wars is better, Star Trek is still OK. And there’s a lot of it out there, which is great for binge watching on a hungover weekend morning or a lazy weekday night. All seven seasons of Deep Space Nine are now on Stan, along with the original series and The Next Generation.


Presto Is Bringing The Fight To Netflix And Stan

Presto is now a formal, official joint venture between Foxtel and Seven West Media — two of Australia’s largest media companies.

Sign Up To Optus, Get Free Netflix

Netflix is launching in Australia in a couple of weeks, so it’s good timing for Optus to get on board with streaming video. If you’re a new or re-contracting Optus customer — whether it’s for home broadband, or for postpaid or prepaid mobile or mobile broadband — you can pick yourself up a free Netflix subscription.


Streaming Movies And TV On Stan, Easier Than Netflix

A streaming video on demand service can have a massive library of movies and TV online, but just as important is actually guiding you to easily find and watch that video. For my $10 per month, the experience of actually using the just-launched Stan is every bit as good as, and in some cases even better than, Netflix.
