At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Razer took the opportunity to reveal that it has struck a partnership with streaming giant Netflix, which will soon deliver HDR10 video to the Razer Phone. On top of that, the smartphone will become the first ever handset to have Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound. In other words, the Razer Phone will be delivering probably the best Netflix experience on mobile.
Just this week, Netflix had announced that it was planning to increase the pricing of its service for American customers by November. Despite this, the number three biggest wireless carrier in America is not planning to discontinue the free Netflix special offer it had introduced about a month ago.
T-Mobile recently revealed that it is offering free Netflix content to its unlimited data subscribers, especially those with family plans. Specifically, the major US wireless carrier is providing free Netflix access to any customer with at least a couple of lines of service with unlimited data. For those who are under existing plans or promos who are interested in availing of the deal, they will have to upgrade to a T-Mobile One unlimited plan.
Not too long ago, there were only a trio of smartphone devices that come with support for Netflix’s HDR streaming feature -- namely LG’s G6 and V30 flagship handsets, as well as Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium.
Verizon Wireless has admitted that it had indeed been throttling streamed video content from Netflix as well as other video content providers. About a week ago, there were reports that the number one mobile operator in the United States was seemingly capping connection speeds for subscribers who were watching video content from Netflix on the Big Red’s network. The major US wireless carrier has since confirmed that it was throttling network speeds in order to optimize the content. The company did qualify that it was not specifically throttling speeds for subscribers of Netflix.
LG is now releasing unlocked versions of its latest flagship device, the G6 phablet. These unlocked editions can be purchased from online retailers or preordered directly from the South Korean tech giant’s official website. With regards to pricing, Amazon currently offers an unlocked LG G6 unit at a price of $630, while B&H and LG itself are selling the smartphone for $700.
This piece of news should sound interesting to those with plans to soon purchase any one of Samsung’s latest flagship offerings, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus -- the biggest vendor of smartphone devices in the world has decided to offer a free subscription to Netflix, as well as various Galaxy accessories, to customers who are buying a new Galaxy S8 unit. Samsung’s latest special offer is good until May 16th.
When Netflix began offering support for offline viewing for devices late last year, it only did so for handsets that are powered by the Android and iOS mobile operating systems. But this year, the company is now introducing the same feature to the Windows 10 platform, as first reported by MSPoweruser. But wait, there is a catch -- it can only be used on Windows 10 personal computers and tablet devices.
T-Mobile has recently launched a new promotional deal for both current and new subscribers, and this one should sound appealing to binge watchers out there. In its new limited time only special offer, the third biggest wireless in the United States is offering Samsung’s Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, together with a whole year’s subscription to Netflix, absolutely free of charge.
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.
