Netflix releases 4K HDR sample file

I have a reasonably good sized collection of sample/test clips that I use when testing kit. On the odd chance that you also horde these sorts of files, you’ll be interested in a 4K HDR sample that Netflix just released. You won’t have to search for Torrents of Netflix’s new 12-minute show Meridian: the streamer has published the program as […]

Block Google DNS per device

Block Google DNS

Domain name space. Licensed under Public Domain via Commons. Some apps, like Netflix, have recently started hard coding Google’s DNS servers into them to combat the use of VPNs and Smart DNS services. Most of the guides I’ve seen have indicated that the best way to combat this is via “static routes to nowhere”. While this is an approach, I […]

Cox Pulls Plug on Streaming Video Service

After experiencing NETGEAR’s previous generation NeoTV NTV200, with solid function, value and distinction as one of the only media streamers with HDMI CEC support it was genuinely exciting when the NeoTV MAX (NTV300SL) arrived with a dual-sided QWERTY remote, full VUDU 3D and Netflix multichannel audio with subtitle support–that NETGEAR only asks $70 (MSRP) for the device was gravy. With […]

Netflix Streaming Now Available in Scandanavia

A couple of months ago, HBO and Netflix announced within days of each other that they were going to be launching streaming services in Scandanvia. At the time, HBO stated that HBO Nordic would launch in October, but Netflix was going with a less definitive launch date of “by the end of the year”. Call me cynical, but I think […]
