Netflix Is Creating One Of The Most Expensive TV Shows In The World — Here’s Why It’s So Important

It’s It’s one of the most expensive TV series ever made, according to The New York Times, since it costs $90 million to produce 10 episodes. The only show with a higher budget is HBO’s “Game Of Thrones.”

But there’s another reason “Marco Polo” is so important for Netflix. The company is hoping the series will appeal to international audiences as it expands, especially since Netflix holds the international rights to “Marco Polo.” Netflix didn’t hold any international rights to other popular shows such as “House Of Cards,” which is why the series was able to appear on rival platforms in Germany and France, according to The New York Times. – Lisa Eadicicco,Business Insider

‘Friends’ Is Streaming On Netflix Everywhere But The U.S.

It’s true. Friends is already on Netflix, but unless you have your passport handy and feel like venturing to Finland, you’ll have to wait until January 1, 2015 to binge-watch the series. […] Since Friends has been such a pop culture phenomenon here in the U.S. for the last twenty years, it’s pretty outrageous to think we have unlimited access to the series after the rest of the world — kind of like sloppy streaming seconds. Why do things like this happen, you ask? International television distribution markets are all kinds of crazy and abide by completely different contracts than over here in the states. Add the newness of SVOD into the mix and things get even more complicated. Therefore, acquiring streaming rights to a series of Friends’ caliber is pretty much luck of the draw and up to the distributors’ (in this case Warner Bros. TV) foreign branch. And of course, Netflix. – Olivia Armstrong,Decider

VIP Sports Box and Other Solid Streaming Sports Sites

Vipbox.tv: While others on this list have certain limitations with active links, broadcast choices and/or specific sports they show, VIPBox TV doesn’t have such restrictions,
LAOLA1.tv: Laola1.tv might not carry any of the major sporting events, but it does broadcast a bunch of unique sports like table tennis, volleyball and other sports that aren’t as mainstream with fans.
All Sport Live: If you’re into following—and watching—more international sports like Australian rugby, Russian hockey and others, non-American sports, I’d suggest checking out AllSportLive.
wiziwig.tv: It might be as basic as it comes, offering just about the same amount and similar broadcasts as others on this list, but it’s a great resource to find the major sporting event of your choice.
First Row Sports: The most popular sports streaming site, FirstRowSports has been giving users streaming sporting events for the past couple of years[.]
Sport Lemon Tv: One of the biggest and most dependable of all the streaming sports websites, SportLemon.tv carries all the major sports and usually carry a variety of links to different broadcasts around the world.
WatchESPN: The most obvious problem with WatchESPN? Well, it’s not exactly free. So why is it on this list, you ask? Because it does offer an option for those who just need to feed their sports fix, and because it’s the most trusted site/app out there on the Internet.
Stream2Watch.me: Another one of the biggest sports streaming sites, Stream2Watch.me has a bevy options for fans to watch their favorite sporting events and, yes, even carries a few of the original broadcasts that would be on a national cable channel.
