Netflix Is Booting The Best Show In Fox History

While this obviously seems like horrible, rake-nails-down-your-face news, it could be way worse. Originally, Netflix had plans to kick off a ton of 20th Century Fox -owned programs, including Angel, Firefly and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Because what’s the use in having fun science fiction and supernatural content available for streaming, am I right? Luckily, deals seem to have been worked out. Currently The X-Files seems to be the lone Fox holdout expected to leave Netflix on April 1. – Jessica Rawden, Cinema Blend

Hollywood Studios Willingly Advertise on Notorious ‘Pirate’ Site

This week the International Intellectual Property Alliance informed the U.S. Government on Russia’s lack of anti-piracy enforcement. The group which represents MPAA and RIAA, among others, called out Vkontakte as one of the worst piracy havens.

The MPAA and other copyright holders have complained about it for years. Having this in mind, we were surprised to find that several Hollywood studios still advertise their content on VK. […] Warner Bros. Entertainment is […] not the only studio with an official VK account. Universal Studios Entertainment has a dedicated page for Russian fans too, and so do Disney, Marvel and 20th Century Fox. […] There are many other companies represented by the IIPA who have a profile on the “notorious pirate site”, Microsoft included. – Ernesto,TorrentFreak

Netflix vs. Shomi: What you can expect from the Rogers/Shaw streaming service

As you may have heard, the new streaming video service, coming from Rogers Media and Shaw Media, will be available to Rogers and Shaw Internet and cable customers in a beta version starting the first week of November. The Netflix-like venture will cost viewers $8.99 per month, and by the end of its first year, the service will reportedly include 1,200 movies and 340 TV titles.
