@nivo0o0 I think it's because it's hard to stream 4K video :)
Rene Pot@wraldpyk · Founder of Hip.Coffee
@andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 pretty sure competition forced them. Streaming or downloading requires the same amount of bandwith
@andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 Well, I don't think a lot of 4k videos will fit into an iDevice
Andrey Yanovskiy@andreyyanovskiy · Designer
@iduuck @nivo0o0 oh, so it's for iOS/Android... then it's much simpler — download at home over WiFi — watch on a commute
Frad Lee@fradser
@andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 iPhone 7 Plus 1080p 😂

@wraldpyk @andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 Yeah, they require the same amount of total bandwidth but not the same amount of bandwidth per second. I think his point is that downloading 4K doesn't require you to have a sufficiently fast bandwidth, where as streaming it does.

@andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 i think your internet connection is slower than mine :)

@joshuapinter @wraldpyk @andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 lol.. You actually had to explain that? We're doomed.
Gene Fan@0x11ff · CEO, SECUR1TY.com
@nivo0o0 First up, the complete (Netflix collection of) Pedro Almodovar movies:)
Zack Bloom@zackbloom · Engineering Manager, Cloudflare
@nivo0o0 Having worked at Hulu, I'm convinced it was 100% a licensing and rights issue. Copyrights can be infinitely subdivided, meaning Netflix may have had 'streaming' rights, but not 'offline caching' rights. Yes, even on content they produced.

@nivo0o0 2017: Thoughts on offline viewing for the desktop? ❌
Jason Salas@jasonsalas · Product Director
@zackbloom Interesting...

@andreyyanovskiy I think it's because Amazon Prime Video is on it's way outside of the USA 😉
Florin Muresan@florin_muresan · Mentor and Speaker at Startup Events.
@zackbloom @nivo0o0 I agree. It's also what I think. People don't realize it, but licenses and rights are the reason why MOST great things are locked to the world.

@nivo0o0 @frassmith What's a desk top?
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
Probably the most useful update to Netflix since they introduced online streaming. Tangent: What shows/movies are people watching? I'm enjoy Black Mirror (related), Tallulah with Ellen Page is great, and Demetri Martin's standup special is hilarious. Oh, and I recently re-watched Heavyweights. It holds up. 😊
Steph Garrett@ongarrett · Podcast Lover; https://www.podDB.me
@rrhoover Chewing Gum, Black Mirror, The Crown is lit, Chef's Table, and Lovesick
Jason Hart@dcdjason
@rrhoover +1 for Black Mirror. Nacros is pretty amazing as well.
Wouter van Lent@woutervanlent · Founder Repuso.com
@rrhoover Designated Survivor is my latest discovery!
Thomas Dunn@thomasdunnuk · Customer dev + UX research @Buffer
@rrhoover Just finished season 1 of Hannibal. Dark dark stuff and very addictive
Ali Afridi@alikafridi · Building Products
@rrhoover Black Mirror, Narcos, and I've started to watch through the old Top Gear. Good stuff.
Jason Frishman@frishy · Founder, Netcapital
@rrhoover Michael Che's recent standup was amazing. Highly recommend.

@rrhoover The Crown is sooo good 👑 thankful for the random midnight @stevesi Twitter recommendation 💫
Nat Eliason@nateliason · Writer
@rrhoover Bojack Horseman if you want some surprisingly insightful and deep comedy.
Matthew Helbig@mhelbig1 · Video Content as a Service
@rrhoover Joe Rogan's newest standup, The Fall and Black Mirror.
Eric Miller@epic__miller · Electric Vehicle Engineer, Lucid Motors

@rrhoover Good to hear that you have time to watch :-) I just started with White Collar, is average
Brian J King@brianjking
@woutervanlent @rrhoover It's a shame it keeps getting bumped from airing. Looks like episode 8 will finally air tonight though!
Khalil Benihoud@benihoudkhalil · Designer
@alikafridi @rrhoover right
Desmond@desmonddantzler · Working on Fanbox.
@rrhoover Tales by Light, Untold History of the US, & The Bletchley Circle. The Killing is probably the best crime drama I've seen.
Sarah Evans@prsarahevans · Digital correspondent
@rrhoover the crown!!!!!
Yinka@yinkaadepoju_
@rrhoover Been watching Fargo, it's great!
Wilsar™@callmewilsar · Founder - MelaninHabits.info
@ongarrett @rrhoover omg I love chewing Gun. Black Mirror is always a great choice. :)
Steph Garrett@ongarrett · Podcast Lover; https://www.podDB.me
@callmewilsar I was shocked by how light they kept it regardless of the storyline. Laughed until I cried
Emily Schuman@emilys · Marketing, Astro
@rrhoover watch The Imposter! pretty crazy doc. Shameless is great. Just watched Temple Grandin (actually found via LeanFlix - https://www.producthunt.com/post...) which was really good too.
Jack Dweck@jackdweck · Product Manager at Unroll.Me
Brb, currently downloading all of Black Mirror

👴: back in my day you had to be online to stream your Netflix! 👶: What's Netflix, grandpa?
Vamsi Varanasi@vamsikvaranasi · Product Manager, Securifi Inc
@sisedi Unlikely. Even today, no one asks "What's Coca Cola grandpa?"
Stanley Idesis@sisedi · Developer, Consultant, and Teen Idol
@vamsikvaranasi after 10 years of business you're ready to say Netflix is a guaranteed 100 year brand? Ballsy ;D
Vamsi Varanasi@vamsikvaranasi · Product Manager, Securifi Inc
@sisedi Ha ha, point taken. Netflix might go the way of Blockbuster... but if they play their cards right, there's not reason they won't stick around.
Stanley Idesis@sisedi · Developer, Consultant, and Teen Idol
@vamsikvaranasi they do have an incredible advantage though unlike tech, the beverage world is hard to disrupt at this point. I wonder if it's possible 🤔
Vamsi Varanasi@vamsikvaranasi · Product Manager, Securifi Inc
@sisedi With blockbuster vs netflix, netflix filled a need of the consumer to get movies without hassle and in a convenient medium. I don't see a replacement for streaming, like ever. Unless we get movies that we can "experience", I mean actually live them, and somehow Netflix misses that train, I don't see it being disrupted so easily. Coke always filled our need for fattening sugar water :D We'll always crave fattening sugar water, but Coke sells us excuses for drinking it more than the water itself.

@vamsikvaranasi @sisedi "movies we can experience...?" Westworld anyone? :D
