Netflix adds Galaxy Note9, Tab S4, LG G7/V35, and more to HD and HDR list

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Samsung is known for having the best displays in the smartphone/tablet game, and that hasn't changed with the new Galaxy Note9 and Tab S4. As a result, we're not surprised that Netflix has already added the duo to its HD/HDR support list. Several other devices have been added as well.

Here are the new additions to the HD support list:

  • Huawei MediaPad M5 10 Lite (BAH2-L09, BAH2-W19, DL-AL09, DL-W09)
  • Huawei MediaPad T5 10 (GS2-L09, GS2-W09, GS2-W19)
  • (duh) Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 (SM-T835, SM-T835C, SM-T835N, SM-T837, SM-T837P, SM-T837V, SM-T837A, SM-T837R4, SM-T830, SM-T830X)
  • Honor 10 (COL-L29)
  • Huawei Nova 3 (PAR-LX1M)
  • LG G7 (LM-G710N, LM-G710VM, LG-G710, LM-G710, LM-G710V)
  • LG V35 (LM-V350N, LM-V350)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (SM-N9600, SM-N9608, SM-N960D, SM-N960J, SM-N960U, SM-N960U1, SM-N960W, SM-N960XC, SM-N960XU, SC-01L, SCV40, SM-N960F, SM-N960N, SM-N960X, SM-N960XN)

And here's what's new on the HDR list:

  • Honor 10
  • LG G7
  • LG V35
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

We also aren't surprised to see the LG G7 and V35 here, as LG's G6 was actually the first device on Netflix's HDR list.

Walmart reportedly considering streaming service to compete with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Retail behemoth Walmart is thinking about launching a low-cost streaming service in the same vein as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, sources tell The Information. While the venture would be expensive, it could potentially aid Walmart in its ongoing battle against Amazon, which has taken a bite out of the profits of many brick-and-mortar retailers.

The retailer apparently sees the opportunity to undercut the pricing of existing streaming services, as well as reach segments of the population not already utilizing streaming video, particularly in middle-America.

Netflix fast.com internet speed test now measures upload and latency

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Netflix's fast.com internet speed test is pretty much the defacto way to check download throughput. Since it uses Netflix's servers to test, you can easily check if your ISP is throttling your video. And it's more likely to reflect the sort of speeds you'll actually see in the real world compared to things like speedtest.net, which often reports unrealistic or inflated numbers. Now Netflix has added some extra info to its test, including latency and upload speeds. 

 

The new tests do require an extra step to trigger.

Netflix ‘Smart Downloads’ feature will remove watched episodes and download the next one automatically

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Netflix launched video downloads in 2016 after years of begging and pleading by subscribers. Unfortunately, a lot of content isn't available for download because of restrictions by rights holders, but Netflix is making downloads more convenient for the content that is supported. With the new Smart Downloads feature, the app can delete thing you've watched and grab the next episode automatically.

Smart Downloads only works on TV shows for now. When the feature is enabled, you can basically pick a floating buffer of episodes.

Netflix is testing an expensive new ‘Ultra’ subscription tier

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

Towards the end of last year, Netflix raised its prices in the US, with the most expensive option (Ultra HD, 4 screens) increasing from $11.99 to $13.99. In Europe, that top tier costs €13.99 (£9.99 in the UK). Thankfully, it doesn't look like Netflix is planning to hike its current subscription prices any further, but a new even higher tier could be on the way.

According to TuttoAndroid, users in Italy have noticed a new 'Ultra' plan costing an additional €3.

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Netflix might be one of the most popular video-on-demand services on the Internet, but it's by no means immune to mistakes. One of those mistakes was its now-former mobile player UI, which just wasn't very well thought-out. The company has finally redone the interface, and it's now much easier to use.

Netflix now lets you skip boring intros when watching shows on a Chromecast

Friday, May 18th, 2018

As much as I love The Office's intro, it does slow down marathons a bit. Netflix introduced the ability to skip TV intros last year, but the feature didn't work while using a Chromecast or similar device. Thankfully, that has finally been fixed, so you can save precious seconds on your next BoJack Horseman marathon.

When streaming shows to a Chromecast, or other other cast-enabled device, the Android app now shows a button to skip the intro at the bottom of the screen.

More and more smartphones are debuting with HDR-capable displays, but actual HDR support from app developers can often take a while. Almost exactly a year ago, LG's G6 became the first device to get Netflix HDR. Since then, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, LG V30, Galaxy Tab S3, Galaxy Note8, Xperia XZ1, Razer Phone, and Galaxy S9 have been updated to support it as well. The Sony Xperia XZ2, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and Huawei P20 have now joined the lineup, meaning there are now a full ten Netflix HDR-capable Android devices.
