Netflix Prices Set To Rise


Prices for its popular standard plan, which allows streaming on two devices at the same time, will be increased to $12.99 per month from $10.99. The company's top-tier plan, which allows streaming on four screens in high definition, will be raised to $15.99 from $13.99 per month, while fee for its basic plan will rise to $8.99 from $7.99.

Netflix is raising monthly fees for its U.S. subscribers by between 13 percent and 18 percent, the video streaming pioneer's first price increase since 2017 as it spends heavily on original content and international expansion.

Time Warner Inc's HBO Now streaming service charges $14.99 per month, while Hulu's no-advertisements plan is priced at $11.99 per month.

Netflix has been pouring money to bolster its original content, which boasts award-winning shows such as "The Crown", "Black Mirror" and "Wild Wild Country", to fend off intensifying competition from players such as Amazon.com's Prime Video service and Hulu.

The company is expected to have a debt level of $8.33 billion in 2018, according to Daniel Morgan, senior portfolio manager at Synovus Trust Co, which owns 15,019 shares of Netflix.

"With Netflix frequently tapping the debt markets on several recent occasions, the price hike could help ease concerns with a growing deficit on free cash flow to fund a likely continued escalation in Netflix's content spending, which likely topped $13 billion in 2018."

Get Ready For Stranger Things 3 Premiering On Netflix


The first two seasons of Stranger Things took my breathe away. This is one of the best t.v. shows on Netflix. I completely enjoyed every moment of it.

There has not been a show that made me stay up day and night in a long time. While watching the show, I didn't want to sleep or miss a moment.

Now season 3 is getting ready to come out and I hope it's as good as the first two. In case you never watched Stranger Things, here is the run down below.

It's the fall of 1984, about a year after Will Byers was found, and he has been plagued by seeing visions of the Upside Down featuring a more dangerous monster. That leads the boy to see a suspiciously friendly new doctor, with the possibility that Will's visions are the result of suffering from PTSD. Nancy deals with survivor's remorse over the death of best friend Barb. Meanwhile, a new sinister entity threatens the Hawkins residents who survived the year-earlier events. New to the town is tomboy Max, who befriends the boys and attracts the romantic interests of Dustin and Lucas.

Netflix’s Stranger Things season three was a dead cert even before the second season dropped to widespread hysteria in October 2017, and the company made it official late in 2017.

It was a great start to the new year for Stranger Things fans, with Netflix announcing on Instagram that the new third season will drop on 4th July 2019 – Independence Day in the USA. On 10 November 2018, David Harbour confirmed that he had finished filming – and that he was looking forward to shaving off his mustache.

Chris Rock Signs $40M Deal

Fans can anticipate fresh material from Chris Rock in the near future, as Netflix announced that the comedy great has signed on with the entertainment giant. The deal will reportedly pay Rock $40 million to deliver two stand-up specials.

2016 marks 20 years since Rock shot to stardom with the released of his second HBO special, with 1996's "Bring The Pain." The show is noted for having elevated Rock, who was already an established comedian/actor, into the conversation of elite mainstream comedians. A world tour is currently being planned to precede the taping of the first show in 2017, which likely means it will become available during the holiday season, if not in early 2018. It'll be his first since the release of his fifth HBO Special "Kill the Messenger" in 2008.

"Chris Rock is a beloved actor and director, and his remarkable stand-up makes him comic royalty. There is no one like him, and Netflix offers the global platform and creative freedom that will serve as a perfect home for someone with his incredible talent,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said of the signing, Thursday [October 13].

Netflix's offer sums up to be a more lucrative package than those that have been commanded by fellow comedians Jerry Seinfeld, Louis C.K. and Amy Schumer. In agreeing to the deal, Rock joins a roster of talent on the service that includes John Mulaney, Patton Oswalt, Cedric the Entertainer, Iliza Shlesinger, Ali Wong, Mike Epps, Aziz Ansari, Anjelah Johnson, Chris Tucker, Chelsea Handler and David Cross, Joe Rogan, Dana Carvey, Michael Che, Gabriel Iglesias, Reggie Watts and Colin Quinn.

Sloane Angell - Halston Takes A Trip



Internationally known DJ launches recording career with hot debut single ‘Halston Takes a Trip’ 

LOS ANGELES, CA – Old-school Disco meets modern-era House music on the debut hit single from DJ-turned-recording-artist Sloane Angell. “Halston Takes a Trip” is a long, psyche-ish groove with hypnotic synth stabs and punchy drums that invite the listener to the dance floor and keep them there. It’s a fun track ready made for hanging out on the beach or enjoying a night out at the club. Roughly inspired by the Halston documentary on Netflix, the song is Angell’s attempt to make a desert rave song, albeit born from his love of the unique sounds and styles of the 70s.

RZA Talks Second Chances and Cut Throat City Film

 


There calling him the leader of Wu-Tang Clan. RZA, or Bobby, as he is known to close friends and colleagues, had a particular way of putting beats to razer-sharp lyrics that made you feel part of a song’s creative process. Fans feel RZA’s music, both from Wu-Tang and his solo and collaborative efforts, on a cellular level.


An urban-bred intellectual who expresses through a mic or camera lens, RZA is considered prophetic to his community and perhaps a unicorn to mainstream culture. With a penchant for Eastern philosophy as is evident in the name Wu-Tang Clan and lyrical nods to Shaolin Kung Fu, RZA shared, “One thing I’m looking forward to doing in the near future… I’ve never been to India, and I have to check that one off,” referring to the top item on his bucket list. I recommended he connect with Indian author and yogi, Jaggi Vasudev, also known as Sadhguru, when he makes the trip. RZA is so well-read and well-versed, it felt novel giving him someone and something beyond his scope to Google.
