@nivo0o0 I think it's because it's hard to stream 4K video :)
Rene PotΒ β€” 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 YanovskiyΒ β€” Designer
@iduuck @nivo0o0 oh, so it's for iOS/Android... then it's much simpler β€” download at home over WiFi β€” watch on a commute
Joshua PinterΒ β€” Product Dev at CNTRAL. Maker of ntwrk.
@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.
Pietz ProveΒ β€” Media Computer Science Student
@andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 i think your internet connection is slower than mine :)
Justin WhiteΒ β€” Art Director
@joshuapinter @wraldpyk @andreyyanovskiy @nivo0o0 lol.. You actually had to explain that? We're doomed.
Gene FanΒ β€” CEO,
@nivo0o0 First up, the complete (Netflix collection of) Pedro Almodovar movies:)
Zack BloomΒ β€” Founder, Eager
@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.
Fraser SmithΒ β€” Software Developer, Shanghai, China
@nivo0o0 2017: Thoughts on offline viewing for the desktop? ❌
Jason SalasΒ β€” Product Director
@zackbloom Interesting...
Mac AficionadosΒ β€” Founder, Mac Aficionados
@andreyyanovskiy I think it's because Amazon Prime Video is on it's way outside of the USA πŸ˜‰
Florin MuresanΒ β€” 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.

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. 😊

@rrhoover Chewing Gum, Black Mirror, The Crown is lit, Chef's Table, and Lovesick
@rrhoover +1 for Black Mirror. Nacros is pretty amazing as well.
Wouter van LentΒ β€” Founder
@rrhoover Designated Survivor is my latest discovery!
Thomas DunnΒ β€” Customer dev + UX research @Buffer
@rrhoover Just finished season 1 of Hannibal. Dark dark stuff and very addictive
Ali AfridiΒ β€” VC @ Lightbank
@rrhoover Black Mirror, Narcos, and I've started to watch through the old Top Gear. Good stuff.
Jason FrishmanΒ β€” Founder, Netcapital
@rrhoover Michael Che's recent standup was amazing. Highly recommend.
Niv DrorΒ β€” Writer/Social Editor @ProductHunt
@rrhoover The Crown is sooo good πŸ‘‘ thankful for the random midnight @stevesi Twitter recommendation πŸ’«
Nat EliasonΒ β€” Writer
@rrhoover Bojack Horseman if you want some surprisingly insightful and deep comedy.
Matthew HelbigΒ β€” Video Content as a Service
@rrhoover Joe Rogan's newest standup, The Fall and Black Mirror.
Eric MillerΒ β€” Electric Vehicle Engineer, Lucid Motors
@rrhoover The Killing, the 100, Sense8
Alex StoklasΒ β€” Growth & Product Marketing @ Microsoft
@rrhoover Good to hear that you have time to watch :-) I just started with White Collar, is average
@woutervanlent @rrhoover It's a shame it keeps getting bumped from airing. Looks like episode 8 will finally air tonight though!
DesmondΒ β€” 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 EvansΒ β€” Digital correspondent
@rrhoover the crown!!!!!
@rrhoover Been watching Fargo, it's great!
Wilsarβ„’Β β€” Founder -
@ongarrett @rrhoover omg I love chewing Gun. Black Mirror is always a great choice. :)
Steph GarrettΒ β€” Podcast Lover;
@callmewilsar I was shocked by how light they kept it regardless of the storyline. Laughed until I cried
Emily SchumanΒ β€” Marketing, Astro
@rrhoover watch The Imposter! pretty crazy doc. Shameless is great. Just watched Temple Grandin (actually found via LeanFlix - which was really good too.
@desmonddantzler First two seasons were really top-notch and unbeatable till True Detective didn't happen
Simon BrombergΒ β€” iOS Engineer @LifeBEAM,
@rrhoover The Fall, rewatching various Star Trek series and Pokemon for the nostalgia

I highly recommend "River"
Simon BrombergΒ β€” iOS Engineer @LifeBEAM,
@desmonddantzler @epic__miller The Killing started off really well, but then it dragged on endlessly and jerked viewers around with red herrings. I recommend giving up on it before it's too late. Swap it for The Fall or River.

Plus I know it's set in Seattle, but it doesn't rain there THAT much

@think_andreah she just neeeeever gives in and I kinda love it!!
Justin MalikΒ β€” Podcaster, Optimal Living Daily
@rrhoover Black Mirror, Stranger Things, The Walking Dead, Bloodline
KateΒ β€” Product Hunt
@rrhoover classic comedy forever... 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, the Office, Bob's Burgers, Scrubs all on repeat. Plot / character driven crime shows make appearances too, though (Bones, and NUMB3RS, Psych + Chuck while those last three were on Netflix)

@rrhoover I just binged the new Brazilian Netflix Original "3%" (I watched it subbed in English with the Portuguese dub) and it was GREAT.
DesmondΒ β€” Working on Fanbox.
@shimmb For me the red herrings made the show, especially in S1-S2 when it was discovered who really killed the daughter.
I've seen both The Fall and River, exceptional productions. πŸ‘πŸ™Œ
Jamie McIntyreΒ β€” Founder, Rewire Capital
@rrhoover Black Mirror Season 3 was fantastic. Now Hooked on 3%. Watch it Portugese with English subtitles!
Jamie McIntyreΒ β€” Founder, Rewire Capital
@ninjinka @rrhoover Just saw this after my post. Just finished episode 6. Brilliant show.
Florin MuresanΒ β€” Mentor and Speaker at Startup Events.
@rrhoover Narcos, How To Get Away With Murder, Sherlock (best show ever, the British show!!), House of Cards, Stranger Things, The Get Down Brothers, Luke Cage, Daredevil, Ascension

Netflix is a subscription that really makes sense for me
Nipun GuptaΒ β€” Veni. Vidi. VC. Podcast
@rrhoover I have been watching Pacific Heat (Australian version of James Bond - hilarious) and re-watching Archer / Office. Madame Secretary is a pretty cool show if you are into national security etc.
