More than a year ago, Netflix had decided to include an in-app subscription feature in its app for iOS powered mobile devices, and that move might have contributed immensely in its growing popularity ever since. Indeed during the last month, the app had reached the Top Grossing chart for the first time, landing at number nine. Recently, Netflix’s app adds another reason to celebrate, for it has become the top grossing app for iPhone devices in all of the United States.
Finally. Video streaming giant Netflix has, at long last, decided to let people download and watch its content offline. In other words, users can now enjoy watching Orange is the New Black or other favorite TV shows and movies on their smartphones and tablet devices even without an existing web connection. The company is making this option available to all customers who have already received the latest Netflix update on their compatible smartphone or table. For those not in the know, that would mean any handset that runs on either Android 4.4.2 or newer version, or iOS 8.0 or newer.
Netflix has recently revealed that the updated version of its app for both Android and iOS mobile operating systems now allows users to control how much data the app uses, that is whenever users access Netflix using their smartphones or tablet devices.
John Legere, the always effervescent chief executive officer of major US wireless carrier T-Mobile, took the opportunity to reveal the latest additions to the company’s Binge On and Music Freedom services. Via a video posted on YouTube just recently, Legere announced that the Binge On feature now has Nickelodeon, Dailymotion, EPIX, Spike, TV Land, and five other video content providers.
Maybe not. But it does have some serious explaining to do, especially to its customers. A few days ago, Netflix admitted that it was the one slowing down its own video content major US wireless carriers such as Verizon Wireless and AT&T.
On a video that T-Mobile recently posted on Twitter, John Legere, the outspoken chief executive officer of the wireless carrier, took digs at two of the biggest players in the wireless industry, Verizon Wireless and AT&T. According to Legere, Verizon and AT&T deliver Netflix video content at 360p, while T-Mobile does the same at 480p.
T-Mobile ended its Unwrapped promotional campaign with yet another generous offer, promising a discount in the amount of $100, plus one full year of subscription of Netflix absolutely free of charge, on a select number of Samsung mobile devices.
T-Mobile seems to never run out of promos and special offers. Just very recently, the carrier has announced that it will give a free one year subscription of Netflix to any customer who buys the Samsung Galaxy S6, or its curvy sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge from its stores.
Netflix, the popular on-demand web streaming media provider, has gamely updated its iOS app, now letting owners of the iPhone 6 Plus enjoy videos at 1,080 pixel resolution. Released last Tuesday, the updated Netflix app (designated version 7.0) is now capable of streaming movies, TV shows, and other videos at a very high resolution, taking full advantage of the iPhone 6 Plus's display screen. However, those who use the app on the iPhone 6 will be limited to viewing videos at 720 pixel resolution. Netflix stated that the screen resolution of the iPhone 6 simply can not hold up 1,080 pixels. Still, iPhone 6 users will be able to see relatively more content on their screens.
