I get paralysed by too many choices. Most nights when I flick on Netflix, if I am not already deep in a series, I just sit there flicking through the service until my mind explodes and I pick up all the brain pieces from the floor.
I’ve watched all the good stuff – but there are plenty of hidden gems on Netflix.
With the NBN rollout moving forward we should be expecting Australia to move up through the global broadband rankings. After all, with tens of billions of dollars being ploughed into connecting people across the nation, we should be seeing things get better. But is that the case? How do we compare to other countries and are we treading water compared to other countries or are we getting world-class performance? Let's see what the data says.
Last week, the triumphant return of '90s sitcom Roseanne was abruptly cut short in the wake of a racist tweet by the titular star. This prompted ABC to cancel one of its highest rating comedies, with Network Ten following suit soon after.
It just goes to show that even popular TV shows aren't always safe from the axe. With that in mind, here's a full list of the shows that have been consigned to the scrapheap - from iZombie (meh) to Adventure Time (no!).
I love a good scary movie, and not just because they're good for you. If you're looking for a thriller or horror fix on Netflix, these are the movies currently available on the service that are the most terrifying. Can you handle them?
While Netflix has a huge library of content, there will invariably come a time when a movie you want to watch isn't there. (If you have eclectic tastes, this probably happens a lot.) Fortunately, Netflix has an online suggestions box where anyone can nominate movies or TV shows for future inclusion on the service. Here's how the submission process works.
True crime documentaries really exploded as soon as everyone fell in love with Serial but they've been around for a lot longer than that. They interest us because they're frightening - and real - and, admit it, you like to terrify yourself just a little bit, but you also like to play the role of couch judge, couch jury and couch executioner.
Here are some of the best True Crime documentaries we've come across.
Now the story of a terrible tragedy for Australians and the one service who couldn't save us all. Netflix will not be airing Season 5 of Arrested Development in Australian on May 29. However, Foxtel has confirmed that they will be airing the first eight episodes of the new season on May 30, on the Comedy Channel. We're a pretty switched on unit over here at Lifehacker Australia and so we've sorted out exactly how you can watch it, at practically the same time as the rest of Planet Earth.
Glow is back! Glow is frickin' back on June 29! Hot damn! Time to re-watch season 1, wherein Alison Brie, Marc Maron, and Betty Gilpin work out their feelings through the language of headlocks. When you're done with that, here are all the new TV shows, movies, and stand-up specials coming to US Netflix in June.
There's nothing like finding a theatrical diamond in the trashy TV wasteland rough of Netflix. There's quality up and down the service, but there's also some real hard PASS material. It can make finding that next show or movie pretty difficult.
I’ve watched all the good stuff – and unearthed some hidden gems before - but there are plenty more (they even have their own section!) Here are some of the best picks.
I imagine that upon first accessing the US Netflix library, most Australians begin to belt out the classic Aladdin jam “A Whole New World” - it truly is like stepping into an alternate, content-filled universe of TV and movies. Unfortunately, since Netflix cracked down on VPNs at the beginning of 2016, its been much harder to access the US library, but fret not! Here’s some reliable VPNs that will grant you a golden ticket to Netflix-and-chill-ville.
Despite the streaming revolution we're still paying more than Americans for content, and getting less in return. Hollywood and the music studios have always treated Australians as second-class citizens to be fleeced and it seems that little has changed with the subscription streaming revolution.
While globalisation works in favour of big business, we're still expected to abide by geo-blocking and shop local even when we're getting screwed.
