Canadian Netflix watchers top world in Binge Racing

What Is Binge Racing Infographic_STILL

When House of Cards made its debut on Netflix, I watched Season 1 in its entirety in less than a week. I thought that was pretty fab, but I guess that’s nothing compared to today’s Bingers who are ripping through every single episode of a season in a day. In fact, the new trend amongst the over eight million “super fans” around the world, primarily to get bragging rights is called Binge Racing with Canada clocking in with the world’s top marks. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Will you binge watch House of Cards Season 3?

HouseOfCards Season 3

If you are a big fan of House of Cards on Netflix, I’m sure you’re excited that Season 3 is now hot off the press. I wonder, how many of you have already put aside all those important things that you were supposed to in favour binge-watching the entire season of 13 episodes?

I admit that so far, I’ve only watched Season 3 Episode 1 – or Chapter 27 is it’s referred to. I made myself a promise not to repeat what I did last for Season 2 after I binged on Season 1. It started off nice and slow; I controlled the urge and watched the first three episodes over a period of a little over two weeks. Then I couldn’t help myself. I cranked out the popcorn maker and watched the rest of the season over a weekend. Read more…and take our POLL at Canoe Tech Blog

Netflix subscriptions jump by $1

HouseOfCardsBut still a very good deal.…

EDMONTON, AB, May 12, 2014/ Troy Media/ – If you’ve been putting off subscribing to Netflix and watching the scheming Kevin Spacey in Emmy-award winning House of Cards until now, it’s going to cost you just a little bit more to subscribe.

Netflix says the $1 price increase (from $7.99 to $8.99) is necessary if it was to continue to add more movies and TV shows to its roster and continue to provide original and exclusive (and expensive) content. House of Cards just released Season 2 in February and Orange is the New Black will debut Season 2 on June 6th.

Netflix recently sent out an e-mail to current members advising them of the change and how it would affect them now and in the long term.

“As a thank you for being a member of Netflix already, we guarantee your plan and price (excluding tax) will not change for two years.”

The company added that they would guarantee the current price members pay as long as they maintained current membership.

Lost one too many Apple TV remotes?

SlickWraps Apple Remote Orange

Apple TV Remote with Slickwraps skin, in the dark

Where’s the remote? This is a cry often heard in my household. It’s usually followed by, “which one,” a ritual that occurs on a regular basis, most often on a Friday or Saturday night. After fiddling and fumbling, looking under the couch between the cushions or maybe under the newspaper, the missing remote is usually found along with another you weren’t looking for, yet. However sometimes, like in the case of the pocket-size Apple remote, it may be destined to never be found.
