The North Korea Netflix clone is as bad as you’d think

North Korea's Netflix Clone
Netflix is committed to supplying a never-ending stream of Western entertainment straight into the eyeballs of the populace. North Korea is committed to none of those things. So it's a bit of a mystery why North Korea has built a Netflix clone, but I sure am glad that there's photos of it. North Korea News has the scoop on "Manbang" (no, really), the North Korean set-top box service that is supposed to rival Netflix. It offers the ability to watch five channels in real time, browse TV by category, and view information about the Glorious Leader. Manbang and chill? Sounds about right.

Not even ‘Stranger Things’s’ creators know where to take the show next

Netflix Stranger Things Season 2
Stranger Things is one of the best TV shows Netflix has released since it started making original content for its streaming service. There’s absolutely no doubt about it. It’s enough to see one episode to want more, and thankfully, you can proceed to the next one immediately. This 80s thriller debuted just recently on July 15th, but it became an instant hit with subscribers. A second season has already been confirmed, but a new interview reveals that two of the show's top stars have no idea where season 2 is heading.

Netflix releases first six episodes of ‘The Get Down’ to mixed reviews

The Get Down Netflix
If you've finished binge watching Stranger Things and are on the hunt for a new show to get into, Netflix's new show The Get Down may be worth checking out. Released earlier today, The Get Down is a Hip Hop musical drama set in 1970s New York. Featuring an all-star cast, including Giancarlo Esposito (aka Gus from Breaking Bad) and Jimmy Smits, it's worth noting that the show was conceived by Baz Luhrmann and The Shield creator Shawn Ryan. If the name Baz Luhrmann doesn't sound familiar, chances are you're already familiar with his work as he previously wrote and directed films like The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge!.

‘Netflix for sports’ is finally here, but there’s a catch

Netflix for sports DAZN
The only thing standing between most Netflix users and complete cord-cutting is live sports. Binging House of Cards is all good, but American culture is well rooted in the notion of football and a can of Bud Light (shudder). Even big players like Apple have tried (and failed!) to put together a streaming TV package that includes sports, but now one European startup appears to have pulled it off. Kinda. DAZN is very much like Netflix, but for certain sports. For a flat fee of about $12 a month, users get access to on-demand and live-streaming soccer, NFL, NBA, ice hockey and rugby, to name a few. Sounds perfect! But, it's technically only available to users in Germany, Austria and Switzerland right now.

Watch the first full-length trailer for ‘Luke Cage,’ coming to Netflix next month

Luke Cage Trailer
After spending a year or so with Matt Murdock and Jessica Jones in Hell's Kitchen, Marvel is taking us to Harlem with the premiere of Luke Cage in September. We first met Luke in Jessica Jones, where he appeared to be a mild-mannered bartender who lost his wife in a tragic accident. At least, until we found out that he's also bulletproof.

‘Daredevil’ and ‘Jessica Jones’ won’t return to Netflix until at least 2018

Daredevil Season 3 Jessica Jones Season 2
Although Marvel has had a few swings and misses at the box office over the years, their partnership with Netflix has yet to produce a dud. Both seasons of Daredevil, as well as the first season of Jessica Jones, received praise from critics and fans alike, and quickly become two of the most popular Netflix original series to date. Unfortunately, despite their popularity, we're probably going to have to wait at least 18 months before we see new seasons of either show.

The real reason Netflix’s subscriber growth is falling

Netflix Subscriber Growth Decline
Netflix's earnings results earlier this week didn't give investors much to cheer about. While the streaming giant's overall number of subscribers increased over the quarter, the company experienced their slowest rate of subscriber growth in history. As for the reason why, Netflix casually dismissed the data point and instead blamed the tech press for focusing too much on its plans for a $1 increase. But the idea that Netflix subscribers -- including those who were previously grandfathered in under old pricing schemes -- would brazenly cancel their subscription over a meager $1 price increase just didn't make a whole lot of sense to some, including CNBC's Jim Cramer. Appearing on Squawk on the Street on Tuesday, Cramer instead laid out an opposite theory, namely that users are canceling their subscriptions because of a lack of content.
