Neil Hunt's Comments on VPN use NOT being restricted as of January 2015
From Netflix chief product officer: “The claims that we have changed our policy on VPN are false,” said Neil Hunt. “People who are using a VPN to access our service from outside of the area will find that it still works exactly as it has always done.”
Update: Thanks for the gold. Glad to see someone else appreciates current info.
Edited For Clarity
OP said 'to stream Netflix', and he/she is correct. IE will stream in 1080p. I use Firefox with a ton of add ons for everything else, but I use IE for Netflix.
What I did was create a shortcut on my desktop for IE. I found an icon online for Netflix and used that for my shortcut. I set IE's home page to [link]
Now it just looks and acts like a Netflix app.
You can setup an additional profile just for her. That way it won't mince your recommendations.
Then, to clean up your own profile, you can remove the stuff she's watched and get your recommendations back on track:

You should check out the documentary "The Search For General Tso's Chicken" its on Netflix. It's a pretty good documentary on Chinese restaurants in America and this recipe. [link]
Europa Universalis 4: Catch up On Your Netflix Backlog While Playing On Speed 5
Since the patch I've managed to finish off Breaking Bad (WHY HAVE I FUCKING WAITED SO LONG TO FINISH WATCHING THAT?)
I must thank Paradox for giving me something to do while catching up on my Netflix backlog. I love waiting 15 years so I can play a game! I used to enjoy playing smaller nations. Now I play as larger nations beating up larger nations and spending 30 minutes waiting for truces to expire.
If you can't sense the scathing sarcasm in this post I'll clarify: I'm being scathingly sarcastic to this asinine EU4 multiplayer balance team. Your game is boring as all fuck, do something about it.
You can already kick everyone out here: [link]
I doubt they would make it easier (the way you suggest) since they don't exactly encourage sharing and they also have different tiers with more streams
One episode of the Netflix documentary series "Chef's Table" tells an interesting story about one of these parmesan banks. There was an earthquake which caused a ton on wheels of cheese to be partially damaged. A chef came up with a recipe which basically required a ton of cheese, and spread the word to get other restaurants to pick it up too. In doing so, he was able to increase the demand temporarily to help the cheesemakers from going bankrupt.
There's a little bit more info on this on this ycombinator post.
Man, I thought that was going to end up like the Bernie Tiede story.
Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Dazed and Confused, School of Rock) actually directed an adaptation of Tiede's story in 2011, here's the trailer. The film was called Bernie, appropriately enough. Jack Black, in what is probably my favorite role of his, played Tiede. He really was very good in it. To be completely honest, I had no idea he could pull off a role like that. It also stars Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey, who both turn in fantastic performances as well. It's a fascinating story and worth a look, for sure.
It's on Netflix US, if anyone is interested in checking it out. I highly recommend it if you're into quirky, off-beat, character studies or true crime films, though this is a bit more light-hearted and more of a black comedy, in my opinion.
Edit: I would also recommend not reading the wiki or watching the trailer (both linked above) if you have any plans to watch the film. It's so much better going in blind.
Primer. It's a movie about 2 guys making a time machine by accident. And then things get really, really weird. If you can figure out what happened the first time you saw it, you're either a genius or someone explained it to you while you were watching.
Or accept Netflx's open offer to work with them to install OpenConnect appliances in Comcast's own datacenters at effectively no cost to Comcast. This would allow Netflix to stream content from directly within Comcast's network instead of from external locations through peering points.
But this will never happen since it would compete directly with Comcast's own video on demand services...
Love Bo, lots of his songs are great and criticize the average person/fan/artist. Should also check out kill yourself from his Netflix special Make Happy
> Nothing in this show is an accident. Every single frame is methodically calculated.
You'll go crazy if you think this way. Watch <em>Room 237</em> if you doubt it. Accidents happen all the time on film sets. Sometimes they make the filmmakers look like geniuses; sometimes they're just continuity errors. I've worked in film and television production for over a decade, and I've seen plenty of both.
I'm not taking anything away from the show. It's clearly well thought-out and well executed. But it was still thought-out and executed by human beings, who make mistakes. This could be foreshadowing, or it could be the camera operator, DP, and/or director thought it was a nice shot.
It's because all Hillary cares about is winning. Like virtually every politician. They all act like they're OK with losing and they just want the party to have a good candidate to make the country a better place. But the reality is, that's not what they want.*
You can, dude. Enable "Manual Ordering." Perhaps it requires a desktop web browser. Go to your account settings, click "Order in My List" under your My Profile section and then check the "Manual Ordering" option.
Go to the streaming home, and click on the "My list" text. That takes you to a page showing the list as queue and you can re-order it.
EDIT2: The direct link to edit your list is [link].
EDIT: I can edit "My List" order on Android, in Chrome if I select "Request Desktop Site." Still, it's much easier on a desktop.
"The Cuba Libre Story" on Netflix
Edit: Netflix said I would rate it 3 stars, I gave it a 4.
Like others have mentioned, not the best but a good place to start and it does focus on the tactics used by Castro and why he was able to defeat Batista.
Doesn't seem anyone has posted Netflix's joke. Netflix Live Will Arnett (think Lego Batman) ~~moderating~~ narrating a bunch of random things. Search for Netflix Live.
Here is a link to the doc "The Thread" on Netflix that chronicles the witch hunt on Reddit into the Boston Marathon Bombers. It forced the CEO of Reddit to issue a formal apology. This is why certain forums make me extremely uncomfortable with the way they "investigate" cases.
ETA: Link for people who want to know more and/or don't have Netflix.
this comment is correct. it still does not go to 1080, you can see by viewing Example Short 23.976
Fan of the first album here, too. So many great tunes and has there been a more succinct bit of wisdom than "mediocre people do exceptional things all the time"? I think not!
The box they've put themselves in with their videos since "Here It Goes Again" is that they've had to come up with ever more elaborate productions and they're so visually arresting that you don't really hear the music. It's not that the songs are that bland, but that you're too busy looking to listen.
I realized this was their hitch when I noticed that I could barely describe the music of bands I was seeing at festivals if I shot a lot of photos. I'd be so focused (heh) on capturing the visual energy I didn't have bandwidth to really listen. This is what these overkill OK Go videos cause. It's kinda sad for them.
For a look at the grueling work that went into their viral hit, "Upside Down and Inside Out" (the one where they're weightless in the airplane), check out Gravity Is Just A Habit (Netflix link), the 19-minute mini-documentary about the production. All that fun-looking hijinks ain't much fun to produce.

Someone hasn't seen Troll Hunter...
Seriously though, found footage movies CAN be great. It's super cheap and easy to make one though, so they're 99% terrible -- all Blair Witch and/or Paranormal Activity ripoffs. Once in a while, you find someone who actually cared about what they were doing, like Troll Hunter or Mr. Jones (amazing 2/3 of a movie, acid trip of a third act that tears it all down).
"Money for Nothing" (available on Netflix) is a much more accurate and informative account than Hollywood's dramatized version of events. These events are recounted in "Money for Nothing" by the people who were directly involved with making these decisions:
Paul Volcker - Chairman of the Federal Reserve (1979–1987)
Janet Yellen - Chair of the Federal Reserve (2014-Present), Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve (2010–2014), President, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (2004–2010)
Alice Rivlin - Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve (1996–1999)
Alan Blinder - Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve (1994–1996)
Peter Fisher - Undersecretary of the Treasury (2001–2003), Executive V.P. of the New York Fed (1994–2001)
Richard Fisher - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas (2005–Present)
Thomas Hoenig - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (1991–2011)
Jeffrey Lacker - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (2004–Present)
Charles Plosser - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (2006–Present)
William Poole - Economist, President, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis (1998–2008)
Laurence Meyer - Economist, Governor of the Federal Reserve Board (1996–2002)
Marvin Goodfriend - Senior V.P., Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (1993–2005)
Along with many others...
Well this is weird since I just recommended it in another thread, but: The Machinist
It's a series instead of a film, but if you haven't seen it yet definitely check out Stranger Things
Furreal though, "Mitt" is a very cool documentary that gives a unique insight into a presidential campaign. I suggest anyone interested in politics watch it.
Here's the Netflix link: [link]
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
S02 E06: Halloween
S04 E04: Fear, Itself
S06 E06: All the Way
Ever seen "Sneakers"?
As I recall it basically does this as a light-hearted espionage comedy in 1992.
It's also on Netflix (in the US, at least).
What you just described is already happening. Netflix has deals with Verizon and Comcast(as mentioned in the article), and have a program in place to place content caches in ISP networks to improve speeds.
Jeselnik's Netflix special was fantastic and I recommend it because by all means I share his dark humour. But that part I really disagreed with - speaking from experience, it doesn't mean nothing.
I survived the terrorist attack on Utøya, and just knowing that people were expressing their compassion really was a comfort for me in that surreal time, just like I'm sure many Parisians find such tokens of sympathy as the modified Reddit logo to be a comforting expression of solidarity.
I don't understand the analysis that says that expressing sympathy like that is superficial or self-aggrandizing. Nobody implies or believes that such expressions are acts of heroism or superior moral fiber. We all know they are tokens. But they do serve a social function - both for victims and for the world that has witnessed the disaster.
Edit: That said - good satire like Jeselnik's was a far better comfort than good intentions. Good satire does require talent and effort.
So I contacted Netflix just to let them know if ads became a thing, I would be canceling my service immediately. The person I was talking to proceeded to tell me I could go here, which is the "test participation" settings, where you can opt out of test participation (it looks like the promo commercials are this type of "test" thing, so hopefully if you have seen the promos, this would cut that out). He also says to make sure you change the settings for each profile (it's not just one setting for the whole account). Just wanted to throw it out there for you all.
P.S. if for whatever reason, that link doesn't work, just get on the Netflix help center/chat and ask them how to opt out of test participation.
Here's his acceptance speech where he makes reference to his wife: [link]
Related interesting netflix documentary: Meet the Coy-wolf.
It's technically about urban wolf-coyotes. But close enough. They're basically dogs, right?
For anyone that cares I only found these on netflix.
I just wanted to first say thank you to everyone helping with this - while the movie hasn't been found yet, I appreciate all the suggestions. Here are a few more details than can help track it down that may help :
the movie was in English with no discernible accents (i.e. no southern drawl, no British accent). It was a cast of unknowns, with the lead woman being of anglo-descent with shoulder-length or longer brown hair.
the home had no immediate neighbors, it was surrounded by trees but not in the deep wilderness. The home was like a smaller farmhouse-style home.
the flashback in the movie was 'bright', as in it used very '70's colors for the bathroom and bedroom. Think yellows, khakis, light brown. The modern scenes were 'cooler' - think light blues and light greys.
We saw this movie at home, between 2009 and 2013, in California. We saw this when our daughter was an infant/toddler, and one of the reasons we cannot remember the name is because we were sleep deprived at the time and the movie started off fairly mediocre. It wasn't until the protagonist started to piece together her memories that it 'snapped' us out of our sleep-deprived haze and we started to REALLY pay attention because it unexpectedly got good.
the movie was over 90+ minutes. We would put on movies instead of TV shows because they were longer and we could 'doze' off and not have to worry about waking the other person to change the movie.
the 'closest' movie we came across to the one we are trying to find was The House Of Good and Evil ( [link] ). It has a 'feel' and look similar to the movie we saw.
THANKS FOR THE HELP!!
What would you say in response to Netflix offering (for free) to embed appliances at the various Comcast and Verizon NOCs that would act as a CDN, thus cutting out the need to saturate any peers, and then them [major ISPs] rejecting the offer to install the OpenConnect system?
Then Netflix would just do a nightly push/pull of 5-10TB of data to keep the CDN current, and pay for that traffic at normal co-location rates. It seems that Comcast/Verizon/TWC subscribers would be pulling that data regardless of the CDN, so why not just work with Netflix on a clear solution to the problem?
Google Fiber opted for the OpenConnect CDN, as well as a few other large-ish, regional ISPs.
I would say that Netflix is right to blame these carriers for not cooperating with trends in the industry to alleviate major sources of traffic. ISPs do this themselves in caching a multitude of things that are frequently accessed, including site-caching and partnerships with Google Global Cache (GGC).
That they refuse to play with Netflix with identical solutions indicates that they are hoping to put an undue financial and technical burden on Netflix, such that it becomes cost-prohibitive to operate and thus prevent consumers to buy the service at a reasonable rate. It only indicates that they [the ISPs] wish to offer competing services, and the only way they can win is if they cheat their last-mile customers out of a quality product.
There is actually a movie-tv-thing on Netflix where they attempt to answer this, and actually succeed in moving a statue quite a ways. It is called Mystery of Easter Island: NOVA.
I just finished watching Trophy Kids and although I know these parents exist, I couldn't believe how seriously some of them take their kid's sports.
We have some annoying parents around our little league field, but perhaps I don't live in an urban enough area to see these types.
> Netflix generates huge amounts of wasteful, redundant traffic and then refuses to allow ISPs to correct this inefficiency via caching.
He is so full of shit. That is exactly what Open Connect is. The ISP would only need to provide data and power to the appliances. Verizon charges nothing.
Can't figure out how to link to the actual episode on Netflix, but theres an interesting documentary called 'Cooked' that has a section that goes into some of the science behind fermentation of beer, cheese, and chocolate. The episode is titled 'Earth' on Netflix, I'd recommend the others as well if you are a fan of cooking in general but that is the one that deals with fermentation.
I'd second Brew Masters about Dogfish Head, great show that was cancelled all too early...
The West Wing:
Season 1, ep 10: In Excelsis Deo
Season 2, ep 10: Noel
Both really really wonderful Christmas episodes!
Go to Recently Watched ([link]), find an episode, and click the button to remove the entire series from your history. Starting/stopping an episode before doing this to bring it to the top of your history will make it easier to find it if your history is really long, especially since your whole history isn't loaded until after you scroll, so doing a find might not work.
I just recently stumbled upon the Netflix show Medici: Masters of Florence, which incidentally I thought was very good. It stars Richard Madden (Rob Stark from Game of Thrones) as Cosimo de' Medici, and Dustin Hoffman as his father Giovanni. It will be interesting to see if they stretch this out to cover the different eras of the family dynasty. If anyone is familiar with both the show, and the real history that it covers, I would be curious to know how closely Season 1 tracked with real history.
Also a TV show, but Person of Interest is fantastic. It starts out as a procedural, but turns into an amazing look at the ramifications of AI surveillance in today's world, with apparently some very well researched "computer-y" scenes. Yes, that's a technical term...
The first four seasons are on Netflix now and the fifth and final season is starting next week on CBS. The creators knew it was ending as well, so it has a proper finish instead of getting cancelled on a cliffhanger.
I've been watching the show Trollhunters on Netflix. Anton Yelchin is the voice actor for the main character. It's a really cute show...but strange and sad to think it's the voice of someone who died way too young.
Did you know that the inventor of the Segway partnered with Coca-Cola to help make this machine, so that in return Coke would distribute his water purification system to countries in need?
Edit: the documentary on Netflix that filled me in, highly recommended!
> In Wolfenstein 3D, players storm a Nazi castle before killing a robot Hitler.
What the hell, Guardian? That factually happened. Here's the documentary about it on Netflix.
Im not sure its fair to say Korolev was better than Von Braun. While Korolev was free to work on his rocket teck von braun was put on ice in the USA and was not allowed to work on rockets until it become glaringly clear that the US needed von braun as the Soviets were way way ahead at that point.
Korolev and Von Braun were both awesome engineers. Theres no question. I do not see a need to say one was better than the other.
There is a pretty interesting, and mostly accurate very entertaining documentary that talks almost exlusively about the 2 of them on netflix. American Genius: Episode 6
Also available on Netflix is the season 8, episode 35 of The Forensic files on the account of the how they cracked the case on the Murray family's disappearance. Without a prayer
There's a documentary on netflix about this called "The Da Vinci Detective". It's really good if you're interested. This guy has essentially dedicated his life to finding this work of art and keeps running into hurdles.
It's an actual thing, mostly for British pensioners with terminal illnesses, and legal in Switzerland.
You just have to go there, have meetings with 2 different psychologists to confirm you are of sound mind. The next day you meet with doctors who describe how the drugs you're about to take will shut down your body and kill you. They repeatedly ask throughout all the interviews if you are sure you want to go through with this. Once you take the drugs and are dead they call the Swiss police, who view all the taped interviews and procedure to determine this wasn't a murder, then your corpse is taken care of however you previously decided.
How to Die in Oregon is on Netflix and a part of the film goes into this. Fascinating but heartbreaking documentary to watch.
The documentary Finders Keepers is in the same vein as well. Follows the true story of a man who bought a BBQ smoker at a storage unit auction only to discover a human foot within. Turns out the foot belonged to an amputee who wanted it back, but the man who bought it wanted to put it on display as a roadside attraction.
It's on Netflix too!
Why do you think it is the American Netflix? Since the news is in Japanese and all other platforms are Japanese, I guess it is the Japanese.
Edit: Yes, it is definitely the Japanese. When you hover over the link, it shows "/jp/". You can also right click, and copy paste the link address. The result will be [link]. Netflix.com is the global url and you will always get refered to the page of your country.
Netflix don´t ban VPNs, its against our Terms of Service, but there it clearly specifies that Netflix don´t offer tech support with any third party program.

Stand By Me (1986)
>It's the summer of 1959 and four 12 year-old boys are fast friends. After learning the location of the body of a local boy who has been missing for several days, they set off into the woods to see it. Along the way, they learn about themselves, the meaning of friendship and the need to stand up for what is right.
Directed by Rob Reiner; staring Wil Wheaton & River Phoenix.
This. ISPs have the option of putting Netflix Open Connect cache devices directly on their networks or freely peering with Netflix inside neutral network locations. [link]
Hitler's Children is a pretty interesting documentary on Netflix that features Rainer. His father spent a good part of his childhood living in a house just outside the camp. Rainer comes for a few generations of horrible parents so it's very moving for he and Eva to be close.
Go to Netflix Taste Profiles and they have a little rating screen that brings up a bunch of titles and lets you rate them. It's sort of a game to pass the time. I've rated over 3500 movies (mostly "Haven't Seen It") and it greatly improves the recommendations and suggested ratings - at least it used to. Now all Netflix ever seems to recommend for me is their original programs.
Usual persistant access like this usually arises from the person able to access the email that the confirmation emails go to. So even if you change your email, i'm assuming the original email receives confirmation that something changed.
This scenario usually leads to the person accessing the account through the confirmation and changing the password again. Doesn't sound like that's what's happening, so this doesn't really seem to be the scenario.
You may also need to go here https://www.netflix.com/ManageDevices and sign out all devices. It's possible they accessed your account and never have been signed out with the old password. This can take up to 8 hours to take action.
As for NewMerril stating wifi compromise, I'm not sure about that either because even if they were on your wifi they still need the password to login from a new device or browser.
This makes me think they have your password, so I would suggest other computer AV software to see if something comes up. Not all Antivirus is 100%.
Only other scenario I can think of is having a serious conversation with your significant other as they are likely lying about watching Everybody Loves Raymond.
> The hard drives are not hot swappable, because we wish to avoid the operational burden of field service
More likely they just swap entire units out once they're sufficiently degraded.
Not in her case. She chilled out in Tahiti for a bit, and had her Dad come visit while she did repairs in Darwin. Her documentary, Maiden Trip is up on Netflix and covers her trip really well.
The Act of Killing
About the Indonesian killings of communists in the 60's, and the people who carried them out interviewed in present day.
Pretty creepy watching them re-enact there crimes.
Survive and Advance. Couldn't find a good version on youtube but it is on Netflix.
If you haven't seen it already, there is a fictional British series on Netflix called 'detectorists' that you might find fun to watch.
Jadotville (2016) IMDb
In production, starring Jamie Dornan for release on Netflix in 2016.
There is another "Trapped" movie on Netflix with a different release date. These links go to the correct version.
The One I Love. It stars Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss, and that's all the details you should know before watching the movie.
It's currently available for stream on Netflix.
Somehow they still managed to find the silver lining in midst of the chaotic Muslim ban. Damn Daily Show, this is why I watch this show, you remind me that it's not the end of the world.
I watched Neal Brennan: 3 Mics last Saturday on Netflix. It was absolutely amazing, I bawled my eyes out by the end of it. There was so much emotions, it makes you laugh so hard, and it makes you cry so hard. Neal was honest, so brutally honest that he really gave you a glimpse into his world. Get a pack of tissue before you watch it, because you will need it.
Trevor has depression too. :( Come to think of it, after all that he went through, I shouldn't be surprised. It really shows through in the documentary, the moments when he was broken, the part where he was talking to his mom around the dinner table was really heartbreaking. There are more Pagliacci around us than we realise. Makes you wonder where does Trevor find the strength to do TDS every day.
Then there's this emotional interview with Trayvon Martin's parents... Behind every single news piece we see or read, there are real people who feel real pain and living through the tragedy of the consequences. You may empathise with them for a few minutes, but there are people who continue to feel that pain for 5 years, 10 years, or even for the rest of their lives.
/u/Camaro6460 is right, this is a really emotional episode, it really is much heavier than other episodes. I'm gonna go clean up the onions.
I also suggest you Check out "F is for Family" as well! There are only 6 episodes in the first season, but I have watched them all multiple times. It is a hilarious show with Bill Burr voicing the main character; a foul-mouthed, ill-tempered father in the 70's.
If you ever find issues with an episode like this, you can go to your viewing activity page ([link]) and "report a problem".
Netflix live chat is also very responsive to reports. They seem to have fixed the skipped-over "Carry on My Wayward Son" sequences in the season finales that we recently reported.
Hands down: Dear Zachary. Don't read the description, just watch. I recommended this to someone and while I didn't ruin his marriage, it certainly didn't help it.
Broadchurch can get really sad as well, if you're looking for a television show.
If you're going to link to this (well known in this sub) documentary, at least link to Netflix, and use the correct title.
4th thing, you can do this for any show that is in their DVD catalog or has been licensed in other regions as long as you know the title id.
This doesn't mean these titles are coming to Netflix Streaming, just that they are in their database.
I'd encourage you to read about the UN report "Livestock's Long Shadow", and/or watch Cowspiracy on Netflix to learn more about the dairy/livestock industry's hugely negative impact on the environment and odd silence about that impact in political/environmental discourse
> You are contracted with Netflix B.V.. There is no Netflix UK
But they make profits from a "netflix uk" website : [link]
Which is even why websites like this one exist : [link]
Saying "there is no business with Europe it's all an US thing" is the kind of blatant lying that should be held accountable.
> Further, it is widely acknowledged and accepted that Netflix is still in expansion mode both in terms of underpricing subscriptions to drive market share/adoption and in terms of costs to create and acquire content.
There is absolutely no reason for the state to shoulder netflix's normal costs of business.
> One of the reasons for the proliferation of Netflix originals is the exorbitant licensing costs of existing material.
Then maybe that licensing system should be modified. But again, this isn't a pass to be above taxes.
Yes, when wood frogs freeze in the winter they freeze completely. There's no heartbeat, no neural activity, nothing. When spring comes around and they thaw, it all starts back up again. There is a neat NOVA episode dedicated to all things cold that covered this specific topic, among others.
The episode was called Absolute Zero.
Link to the episode on Netflix for the lazy.

A hilarious Austrailian action comedy show where they always KILL HITLER, and take orders from a stuffed eagle. Reminds me of a live action Archer. It's on Netflix
Antarctica: a Year On Ice A great documentary showing the beauty and deadly isolation of life in Antarctica.
It's only free for new subscribers. You can't just "watch the free months". Well, you could...but you'd have to keep signing up with different credit cards & email accounts. Netflix does the same exact thing.
That's basically what they tried/are trying with Chelsea, it just doesn't fill quite the same niche. They just need to find someone like John Oliver/Jon Stewart who has that level of widespread appeal and we could be looking at something awesome.
<strong>Watch it on Netflix</strong> If you have an account
Cant believe Netflix thinks this garbage can replace BBC's content.
Hurry up and watch The Honorable Women before its gone.
A series Maggie Gyllenhaal just won A Golden Globe for. NBD, Duck Dynasty must have a mantle full of those.
It's actually more asinine than even that. Verizon has refused to join Netflix's Open Connect program. What that program does is offer Netflix developed buffering hardware to ISPs to reduce the cost and impact to their networks. Specifically by reducing congestion at the Tier 1 providers level, by buffering popular content at hardware in ISPs datacenters.
Open Connect was announced 2 years ago today and has been a working product since.
Even better, netflix offers to send them, for free, a couple of 3U servers.. each server has 100TB of space, and they do a little bit of BGP fun. Now, instead of 3000 people watching House of Cards that day over the uplinks, one person does, and the rest get it from the internal network.
But the ISP's say "Pay me, to save me money"
Just to let people know, because for whatever reason Netflix doesn't link to those from the main title, there is a special to '13 Reason Why' out as well. I haven't watched it yet, but my guess is that it is best to be watched after you have finished the season, because its a bunch of interviews and little clips from the show and probably full of spoilers.
Netflix has video quality controls in the settings to control data usage.
In Android, you can limit it to a bitrate which looks decent; and it consumes only 1GB for 4 hours of streaming.
For other platforms you can adjust the bitrate limit via Playback settings. This setting will limit data usage across all devices, not just PC.
<em>Philomena</em> is a terrific story about an unexpected cross-generational friendship. It starts Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, and was nominated for Best Picture in 2014. And hey, it's actually on Netflix!
Like a lot of people have said those policies are most likely just a way to cover their asses. According to their website the TOS hasn't been updated since September of last year and that policy regarding geographic location was actually added in September 2013. I don't really see a reason to be upset at Netflix for something that is dictated by the content providers and that they probably won't enforce anyways. Of course Netflix is a business and does what it does to make money but in my opinion they manage to make money without bending its customers over and going in dry like certain (read: most) ISPs.
EDIT: Forgot to add my source for the TOS changes...
According to Netflix, "Ultra HD" streams at 25 Mbps.
10 hours of constant 25 Mbps is about 112.5 gigabytes. So if you've got the $12/mo Netflix plan with Ultra HD streaming, a TV which supports "Ultra HD", and a way to bypass the tethering/SMHS limit, then you could probably get that data goal pretty damned quickly.
10 hours per day of Ultra HD for 30 days would be about 3.3 TB of data. I think T-Mobile might notice by that point. Maybe.
"ISPs can directly connect their networks to Open Connect for free. ISPs can do this either by free peering with us at common Internet exchanges, or can save even more transit costs by putting our free storage appliances in or near their network."
Basically Netflix offers the hosting hardware to the ISP's for free, and this should really solve any 'traffic' issues.
Pryor was a wild card at that point, he had some drug problems, his standup was edgy, and they were worried that he wouldn't be good for the production.
This quote from a different article sums it up pretty well:
>On the movie’s DVD commentary, Brooks recalls going “on bended knee to every studio executive” to try to convince them to hire Pryor, but rumors about Pryor’s mental health and drug use, as well as his vulgar stand-up act, caused the studio to reject the idea.
If you haven't watched it, Netflix has Richard Pryor in Concert which is really good.
Like others mentioned, it's Saving Private Ryan.
If you're in the US (not sure about other countries), it's currently on Netflix streaming.

It will display the information in the top left corner of the screen during playback.

I'm no expert but I think it's wrong to assume adults can learn a language the same way a child can. Rosetta stone pushes that whole 'learn naturally' thing but I'm not sure it works better than just some hard work and dedication.
That said, listening to audiobooks, tv, etc is definitely a good way to learn and get used to the sounds of the language. Especially if you already have a knowledge of grammar and vocabulary, its a good way to pick up new words and nuances.
Also [link] use that and change your vpn to Germany, is what i've heard. I've never done it though.
Netflix.com Go to "Your Account" (top right corner of the screen, or follow the link I posted), and in the "Your Profile" section click "Playback Settings".

ZDF has their shows available to be watched with German subtitles on ZDF Mediathek.
You have several shows to choose from, including criminal dramas set in different German cities (SOKO Stuttgart, SOKO München, etc.) Decent quality shows, and while the subtitles are not word for word what they're saying - they make it much easier to watch and understand.
