seinfeld netflix

Jerry Seinfeld's very first Netflix special debuted yesterday, following a long line of comedy exclusives which call the streaming service home. The hour-long event, called Jerry Before Seinfeld, is the first of two exclusive specials the legendary comedian is providing for Netflix, and combined with the rights for the next season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the leading streaming company is paying an absolute mint.

Young Americans will be the death of cable TV

Cable TV alternatives best streaming services 2017

The best data we have suggests that cord-cutting -- ditching cable TV for streaming services -- is happening faster than anyone foresaw. But in case you were uncertain about cable TV's future demise, more research is here from the Pew Research Center to really stick the knife in.

A new survey suggests that young American adults, aged 18-29, are disproportionally using streaming services rather than cable TV to watch programs. Even if older generations are keeping cable TV alive for now, the writing's on the wall.

Everything leaving Netflix in October

Netflix October 2017

The good news is that the list of departing Netflix streaming movies and shows isn't very long this month. The bad news is that it's completely packed with incredible content.

Netflix sent a ‘Stranger Things’ bar the best cease-and-desist letter you’ve ever seen

Stranger Things Bar

As far as cease and desist letters go, you'll be hard pressed to find one more charming than the one Netflix recently sent to the purveyors of a pop-up Stranger Things themed bar located in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.

The bar originally sprang up in late August and, rather appropriately, was called "The Upside Down." As you would imagine, the Stranger Things influence in the bar is ubiquitous and impossible to miss. The location even features a well-crafted replica of the iconic lit-up alphabet wall we saw during the show's first season.

New book details how YouTube helped transform Netflix into a streaming juggernaut

Netflix Video

Few companies have been able to pivot as successfully as Netflix did when it completely shifted the focus of its business from mailing out DVDs to streaming video content to the masses. The transition may not have been seamless as first, but it wasn't long before Netflix carved out a space for itself as the premiere purveyor of streaming video on the planet. In the process, Netflix raised the bar for the entire tech and entertainment industry, eventually forcing companies like Amazon, Hulu and HBO to up their game.

A premiere date and teaser videos for Jerry Seinfeld’s upcoming Netflix special are finally here

Jerry Seinfeld Comedy

As part of Netflix's ongoing commitment towards churning out as much original content as possible, the streaming giant over the last two years has made a concerted effort to bolster its lineup of stand-up specials. And true to form, Netflix has not been shy about spending big bucks in order to attract some of the best comedic minds in the business. After doling out $60 million to Dave Chappelle for a pair of stand-up specials, Netflix earlier this year inked a lucrative production deal with Jerry Seinfeld. In a deal believed to be in the $100 million range, Seinfeld is on the hook for two stand-up specials and will bring over his award-winning Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee series to Netflix as well.
