Netflix will Launch a Mobile – Only Streaming Plan

We’re all preparing to buy our Netflix cards so we can enjoy what Netflix has to offer. But recently it seems that Netflix has been losing customers, mostly due to its price increase. So they’re experimenting with some new ideas to see how they can retain and gain new customers. Which is why it might be a good idea to try out this new mobile only streaming plan that they’ve developed.

What is this plan about?

You can still use your Netflix cards with this plan, but you’ll only be able to use it via a mobile connection or on a mobile phone. It will be cheaper, although there’s no real price description at this time. It’s basically the same Netflix that you know now, but limited to mobile Netflix Thumbnail Imageconnectivity. And even if this might turn some people off, it’s still a really good way for people to use Netflix, especially in remote locations. Up until this point, it was pretty much mandatory to have a TV in order to enjoy the upper pricing points of Netflix. What really makes this plan good is the fact that you can have access to a lower tier without having to pay a lot of money. However, a major limit to keep in mind is that you’ll be limited to 480p. Since this is a phone based system, you won’t really see the difference, and it will definitely save bandwidth. A lot of people would prefer 720p, but at the end of the day Netflix chose this to make it easier on your data plan. And in case you’re looking for some other new apps for your phone that won’t take up too much space, check out Spotify’s new Spotify Lite app.

Is this active right now?

It’s important to note that this version of Netflix will be limited to India, at least for the time being. The idea is that they need to find a way to make this work and bring in more subscribers. This plan makes a lot of sense for lots of customers. At the same time it also poses some challenges. There will obviously be people that just use Netflix on their phone anyways and want this cheaper version. If this plan turns out to be a success for Netflix, there’s probably a good chance they’ll expand this plan to other countries in the future.

Netflix is Testing a “Shuffle” Option for TV Shows

Great customer experience

Netflix is always testing new ways to offer customers a great experience. And right now they are testing out a feature called random episode. Let’s face it, there is always plenty to enjoy on Netflix. The problem for a lot of people is that there are too many TV shows and movies, and they end up spending way too much time trying to choose what they want to watch. Netflix wants to solve that and they have created a new feature that’s similar to the “shuffle” option for listening to music.

Watch popular episodesNetflix Thumbnail

The idea is that you’ll have a button that where you can choose to see a random episode for a given TV show. That way all you have to do is pick the show you want to watch. This can also help you see if a particular show is one that you want to devote lots of time to watching. Not all shows will work for you every time, and sometimes it’s laborious to find the episode you want to watch once you’ve found the show that interests you. So having this type of feature can help a lot, and it can deliver a much more convenient and rewarding experience for its viewers. Plus, if you just want to rewatch content you’ll get to see some of the most popular episodes when you use this feature. This could be something great to use when you want to watch shows like Friends or Seinfeld. You can also check out some of the latest shows on Netflix to help you find some good shows to watch. And you can also choose to ignore the feature, so you can use it as you please.

Versatility for customers

And in the end this has the power to make Netflix’s platform even better and more versatile for its customers. Not all Android devices are supporting this for now, and there’s not much word for iOS. But since it’s a feature in testing and a work in progress, we can expect it to roll out soon. I definitely think this is going to be a big hit. And getting Netflix gift cards is always a good idea if you want to make sure that you get to enjoy the latest shows and features.

Media Streaming Ninja – Daniel

For the first week in March, we are featuring Daniel from Alaska! We sent him some questions to learn a bit about what he loves most about Media Streaming and how he’s using our gift cards.

How old are you, and where are you located?

I’m 22 years old, and I live in Alaska.

Tell us something special or unique about where you live, or why you like it.

I currently live on a small island in S.E. Alaska. The island has a beautiful ecosystem and for the most part hasn’t been destroyed. Most people who live here rely on substance hunting and fishing, which requires working with nature.

What media streaming service do you use? (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) How long have you used it?

I use a variety of streaming services: Hulu, Netflix, Crunchyroll, YouTube, etc. I’ve been using Hulu for 10-12 years, Netflix for about 2 years, and Crunchyroll for the past year. (Soon, you’ll be able to use Apple’s streaming service which is said to roll out later this year.)

Why do you choose to use your current media streaming service instead of other media streaming services that are available?

Honestly, I just look for shows and movies that I enjoy.  Some aren’t on one service, so I use others. I’m not picky.

What is your favorite show to watch on your media streaming service? Why is it your favorite?

Currently, I can’t stop watching Fairy Tail, although I watch a variety of different things. I love how the plot is written, and also how each enemy is shown to be an actual threat that could defeat the good guys.

When do you most commonly watch your media streaming service, and how often?

I usually use it after work, which is about 2-3 am. And I use it when I’m not super exhausted.

How did you find MyGiftCardSupply, and what is your favorite thing about this service?

I found it while trying to find a way to get Steam gift cards electronically.
My favorite thing about the service is how easy it is to get the cards, and how quickly they arrive.

What kinds of things do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy playing strategy games, and doing things that involve using strategy or intelligence. I love challenging my mind to increase my intelligence.

Coming Soon: Apple’s Streaming Service

Netflix and Amazon have ruled the streaming world for quite some time, but this year we will see two major players coming into the mix. Disney is set to launch its Disney+ service towards the end of this year and Apple is also preparing its own streaming service. According to Bloomberg, Apple is introducing its streaming service during an event on March 25, 2019.

We will get quite a lot of original content

Apparently Apple has already secured the right to a series named My Glory Was I Had Such Friends powered by Jennifer Garner and JJ Abrams. It’s rumored that the service will be included with the Apple TV app and we might be able to see a release date this summer. Aside from the aforementioned project, Apple is also working on other original content. On The Rocks is a project with Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola and there are other indie films set to arrive as well. There are even rumors of a sci-fi series, which is quite exciting for the platform as a whole.

Apple has a hard time finding business partners

But the interesting thing is that Apple is also said to allow the purchase of other services via its platform. Will other streaming giants appear in there? That remains to be seen. At this point, HBO isn’t close to an agreement with Apple, and Netflix and Hulu are unlikely to be included in the streaming service. Starz might be included in Apple’s platform, but other additional services are a mystery, at least for now.

But why are partners backing off from securing a deal with Apple? The primary issue, at least what a lot of people suppose at this time, is that Apple wants around 50% of their revenue once they enter their ecosystem. It’s easy to see that such a high rate will turn off a lot of potential partners. They do need to make an investment, and iTunes and their gift card system may work for music, however they are well behind everyone in the streaming and on-demand world.

Becoming a service-focused business

This might also be a clear way to see that Apple is focused a lot more on services rather than products. For many years, especially since the launch of the first iPhone, Apple has been seen as a hardware-focused company. But the expansion of the App Store and the addition of new services brought in a lot of focus on software and services.

A winning approach here is that Apple has worked together with Samsung to ensure that their new service will work on Samsung devices. Despite the fact that the two companies are clear competitors, they know that working together is extremely important if they want to handle their competition.

Apple has several streaming competitors

At this time Apple is playing catch-up in the streaming world. Roku has recently added its own premium subscription, Netflix is dominating the streaming Market, and Amazon’s Prime Video and Hulu are also super popular. If you think Hulu might be the best streaming option for you, you should know that the company recently cut the price of their basic monthly subscription. And then there’s also Disney coming into the streaming world, and they will come with their own original content and a great collection of movies and cartoons. While the road ahead might be tough for Apple’s streaming service, it’s safe to say that this will be great for customers. Having more options with perhaps lower prices and more content is something everyone wants, and now we just have to choose the right one that suits our needs.
