People Like Netflix’s Original Content More Than Its Other Content

Today’s Netflix looks very different than the company that was founded in 1997 – or, for that matter, the one that existed just a few years ago. Netflix went from being a movie rental service to the industry’s first true movie streaming service, and it created a market space that has attracted a lot of

Netflix Beats Amazon and Hulu in Number of Good Movies

When it comes to streaming libraries, it’s not all about quantity – quality is important, too! We know how Netflix and Hulu stack up when it comes to library size, but how will movie buffs find the selection on each service? It’s impossible to objectively measure the quality of Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime Video’s entire

Introducing the Random Button for Netflix

We’re big fans of Netflix here at AllFlicks (obviously), but the service isn’t perfect. One thing that Netflix has always lacked is a good “just watch” feature – the streaming giant still requires you to pick out your next TV show or movie manually. Netflix’s content discovery features are nice, but sometimes you just want

Pennsylvania to Apply 6% “Netflix Tax”

If you’re a Netflix user in Pennsylvania, we have some bad news: your Netflix subscription is about the start costing more, thanks to a change in tax laws in your state. Pennsylvania has a 6% sales tax, but that tax did not previously cover digital downloads and streaming services. That’s changed, thanks to a new

Subscribers Pay 61 Cents Per Hour of Cable, But Only 20 Cents Per Hour of Netflix

Netflix is cheaper than cable, but that alone doesn’t mean much. After all, a service is only worthwhile when you use it. So rather than asking how much Netflix costs relative to cable, we should instead ask: how much does Netflix cost per hour of content viewed, and how does that compare with cable’s figures?

73% Of Subscribers Would Download Netflix Content

Since it first debuted in 2007, Netflix’s streaming video service has remained largely unchanged. A lot of content has come and (mostly) gone, but the basic idea – that of a streaming, web-based service – has stayed the same. That may not be the case for long. Netflix is reportedly considering adding offline functionality, which

74% of Netflix Subscribers Would Rather Cancel Their Subscription Than See Ads

In its early days as a streaming service, Netflix wasn’t just the biggest and best company on the block – it was the only one. In those heady days, Netflix was able to charge low subscription rates and still provide a catalog that included just about everything. As we’ve seen, that’s been changing. With new

The Average Netflix Subscriber Watches 48% More Content Per Day Than the Average Hulu Subscriber

Netflix vs. Hulu is one of the streaming space’s oldest rivalries, and it’s one of our favorites. We’ve broken down their rivalry plenty of times before: by the numbers and in terms of library size and user ratings, among other things. Hulu and (especially) Netflix have enormous followings, with each boasting subscriber counts in the

Netflix Has Twice as Many U.S. Subscribers as Comcast

Comcast is one of pay TV’s most important (and infamous) companies. They have a monopolistic grip on a huge swath of the United States, which makes them a popular subject on blogs like ours. But just how big is Comcast, really? What happens when you compare their subscriber numbers to, say, Netflix? Well, Comcast gets
