So it’s finally happened. Millennials have finally outdone themselves, literally. It’s not state secret that TV viewership is on the decline. While television right now still reigns supreme in overall viewership, one group has made it clear that online video is their preferred method of consumption.
Before we get into what’s coming and going on Netflix Canada this month, let’s run down some of the best movies and series that has everyone excited.
When Netflix adds close to a million new subscribers to its platform in the same quarter that nearly a million households cut their cable, it’s easy to assume that television has seen its last days. But digging deeper into this generation’s consumption habits, the confusion of multiple platforms, and the myth of a better experience for consumers, you’ll see that streaming services haven’t quite figured out how to take down TV.
We’re long past the point of streaming being this new, novel thing in our lives. Streaming has embedded itself into our culture for the foreseeable future. In other words, get use to it. It’s here to stay until some other revolutionary technology comes along and turns it into Blockbuster.
When Spotify launched in 2008, the music industry was like a beached whale waiting for something to lift it up and throw it back in the water. No one was sure that this new form of consumption would be the answer, especially when labels realized they’d only be getting a thousandth of a cent with each stream.
October is here, which means two things: the leaves are changing colour and it’s time for some scary movies. You’ll have to go outside to check out the all the cool colours of the season, but if you’re ready to huddle up under some blankets and dull your screams with some couch pillows, then Netflix has you covered!
Like all great things, summer is coming to an end very soon. There are only a few short weeks left until we pack away our shorts and t-shirts, and we bring back out the parkas and sweaters.
Maybe it is just me but I feel like our Canadian summers are getting shorter (and chillier) and the winters get more frigid. Lucky for us, our friends at Netflix recognize that we will start migrating back indoors soon and blessed us with an awesome line-up this month!
It’s hot. So hot that on most days, I’d rather it be winter. KIDDING! Have you experienced a Canadian winter? Brrr…it makes me shiver just thinking about it. We are only a few weeks away from summer ending so get off your butts and get outside! At night, go inside and relax with a tall glass of lemonade and Netflix.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year — Canada Day! And to our friends south of the border, happy 4th of July! There’s a ton of events happening around the country over the next few days and the weather, at least in Toronto, is amazing. Make sure to catch some sun, eat some barbecue, and wear red to show this beautiful country some love on its 151st birthday.
It’s also a long weekend so it’s the perfect time to sleep in, eat ice cream, and kick back and binge on the latest Netflix releases!
Canadians — we had our fair share of winter, second winter, fake spring, third winter, and half summer. It’s our turn. We’re almost there. Spring is finally here (maybe?) and this time it may be here to stay!
As bears start waking and crawling out of hibernation, it seems like our friends at Netflix have not been resting at all throughout this long and arduous winter. They keep pushing out more and more shows, and the quality keeps getting better! Let’s see what’s in store this coming month for all you Netflixers.
The lunchroom and water cooler areas are particularly busy on Mondays; everyone is catching up with colleagues after the weekend. While my weekends are all about brunch and watching the latest Marvel blockbuster #blackpanther, it seems like everyone else’s Saturdays and Sundays are spent driving their kids around to various activities and birthday parties. March Break is starting soon but I can’t figure out whether this is a break for parents or not!
