Well, you know, it's so you're gonna enter the streaming the streaming world now. Apparently so and so you're gonna cut the cable. And the thing that you have to be careful of head is that you don't start paying more than what you're paying now. So certainly because a lot of people, they'll they'll sign up for Netflix. Well, that's $20 a month. Then they're going to sign up for who? Lou? Well, that's $15 a month. Well, then they don't want their sports and you know, that's gonna be another $15 a month.

You have to make sure that you have an Internet connected TV or or relatively new modern smart TV that has an Internet connection. If not, you need to get a streaming box. And then you've got all these different choices from Sling and Roco, and it's really becomes a bit of a nightmare. And But specifically, the cost may also increase accordingly.

Now, the only thing I want you I want to caution you on Is that on your phone is that I want you to use the reminders that Because they're going to tell you that we're going to give you a deal for six months or 12 months.

Wet Notes - 4-9-21
"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty
Prince Philip's legacy will live on in Netflix's 'The Crown'
"Philip. The royal consort of queen elizabeth. The second died this morning. At windsor castle in england. The duke of edinburgh was ninety nine years old. Npr's london correspondent. Frank langfitt joins us from belfast. Where he is covering the recent violence in northern ireland Frank just tell us more about prince philip's story and what the british public thought of a prince ville spent his early years actually traveling throughout europe e he was of royal descent himself and eventually At and had gotten to know The royal family and eventually married queen elizabeth. He was known. I think in different ways In this country over time People did make fun of him he has. She was seen as short tempered. He would tell jokes that were off color things that we would now consider even years ago politically incorrect kind of remarks. If you look at the daily mirror they number newspapers here would carry every year to they would say you know His hundreds most improper remarks was back in sixty nine. When i guess they were some financial questions he said well. If going to read next year. I'll have to give up polo. And that was one of the more minor ones that said there was also a lot of affection for him and i think respect in the sense that you know when you do a job for a very very long time and you really put your energy into it People give you a lot of credit for that. He was very dutiful. Heated thousands and thousands of royal events supporting the queen. It was a pretty thankless job in in some respects And not a great job necessarily to have today or in. The prime minister said That we give thanks to him. The nation and the kingdom give thanks to him for an extraordinary life and is his extraordinary work.

It administrators have been slowed patched them. Well on thursday security company kaspersky said one of those vulnerabilities is being exploited on fortinet. Vpn gateways to launch ransomware attacks. The initial now where steals user names and passwords which an attacker uses to get into the computer network through the fortinet device. Then the ransomware is downloaded. It administrators that haven't learned from the earlier warnings from four dinette to install the latest patches. Maybe sorry by the way in one case that kaspersky investigated the victim firms. Antivirus was also behind in its database updates so remember for best protection every corporate application has to be regularly updated and that's not all also contributing to the success of the attack. Kaspersky looked at where other failures for some reason. Some of the modules of the antim- our protection. The company used were turned off now. The idea of malware is to protect the company why some features were turned off is mystery. In addition all employees at this firm could access any data that the company had one of the prime defenses of any organization is limiting employee access to sensitive data to only those who need it. Now that can be hard in small firms but if you allow everyone to access everything that a hacker only needs to steal one person's password and they can easily spread malware

Basically taking control over the whole museum fairly effortlessly it seems like The protocol was that that it shouldn't be that easy but it turned out to be that easy and the two men obviously turn out to.

Jessi Pujji - A Primer on Performance Marketing
"So jesse the first part of this conversation is going to be what. I'll call the definitive conversation on performance marketing and i guess really just marketing generally speaking to set the stage as to why you are the right person to be having this conversation with. Just tell us the short history thumbnail version of an push how it got started. And what you've been doing since its founding. Yeah sure. I was not born. A performance marketer. Rank wouldn't wouldn't have expected myself to end up here. Ten years ago is i was working at goldman sachs and i went to wharton and if you go to wharton goldman sachs says the goal of every word kid. I got that ring and my dad was an entrepreneur came from india. I grew up around that entrepreneurship. What i thought i was going to do. But kinda said man. I want to see what it's like to be an investor and learn about that. And you know i liked it but i didn't love it and i said i wanna love what i do and so pretty much on a whim moved out west and said hey i'm gonna start a business and was as in love with the idea of starting a business as i was about and i specifically wanted to build something building organization culture and said you know what let's bootstrap this thing. We don't want to raise angel round and then have a gun on her head and burn money. We want to get something that can make money from early on. And we went around talked a lot of mentors and friends and they said oh you're good with numbers and data go look at performance marketing. That you'll figure something out there and we started calling it sandbox entrepreneurship. which was. We're not going to come up with an idea. Sitting are goldman sachs as what we get in the sandbox of something. We'll figure something out and so we kind of did it like nerdy. People would pick a business ideas so he's okay.

Social media can give anyone the ability to influence the masses. Just an invite three influences to a place called world of fruit basically a warehouse with over the top fruit themed rooms. It looks like it's perfectly designed fans. I've always wondered as being influenced me that you are less susceptible to being influenced overstating. It gives them a till books.

The possible reason behind the naming of Xbox network
"The new naming of xbox and brian wrote in and said they. It's important to note that the network in xbox network is not capitalized not capitalize that ends specifically this is presumably because xbox network is just infrastructure a product or a service being marketed to end users considering the increasing number of activities that no longer require. Xbox live such as streaming services like netflix gene. Soon chad plane free to play games online. It makes sense to differentiate the xbox live service from the network that it runs on. He's not wrong. he's parsing ended a little close. It's a little bit of kremlinology like and the reason it's a lower case in but also i could totally see a group of marketing people brainstorming the name and say let's make the end lower case to sort of indicate that this is really that it's just network no totally totally see that

On the left we have marriage story billboard. This is a Scarlett Johansson. I don't think I want to watch that. You may not be the right person for streaming roddy in a row. We got the Irishman. That's Scorsese's film and then <hes>. DOLEMITE is my name. Reading that right. Alfie, these are both movies. They're both movies. You can see on Netflix Sega. Any of these this is this is a worthwhile trip for learning. What's on Netflix? You could just actually go to your browser. Are these like already outer. These are like I don't know. Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on. TV, it's a way to watch Hollywood talking to itself, these billboards are messages which are very much directed at Hollywood except now. netflix's doing most of the talking. Stranger things net flix. The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix. Even though that time was just a few years ago. If you didn't know any better, you'd think. Netflix's has always been a huge part of Hollywood. Syphilis can be fatal to your baby free.

I'M GONNA. Have like five questions you're GonNa love and five thousand. You've never heard. Today. It's given it. NETFLIX's remade. The media. World to companies becomes so omnipresent in our lives that CEO Reed. Hastings even counts as a sort of celebrity. He's a big enough deal for a guest spot Stephen Colbert. You're like one of the big one of those big <hes> new media disruptors. Why did the entertainment industry need to be disrupted? Just for the fun of it. On this happened really quickly. We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel. Let netflix's stream always rate movies from Sony and Disney so stars had created the service called Vong which nobody listening to this podcast is GonNa Remember, but there was a service before Netflix's. That was streaming. Streaming movies called. Longo Van Gogh was losing seventy million dollars a year. Rich Greenfield is an analyst with light shed partners. He's been following digital media closely for years, and in walks, Reed Hastings in Ted Sandoz and says hey will take that streaming content. You could sub-licensed to us and we'll pay you. Tens of millions of dollars Netflix's use it as the base to build their streaming service, versus what was historically just a DVD service. And the rest is they say is history.

"Responding to that by figuring out how to program differently how to structure themselves differently how to reach some of those people directly all that stuff is, is happening. And I've been sort of waiting for it to happen in predicting when it might happen and saying it's not going to happen for awhile. Now we're here. Okay. So this is the streaming services against the incumbents. Yes, and more broadly. Right. If just still, it's Facebook and Google net flicks. I mean, they're all competing for your time, and your eyeballs, they're all sort of playing in internet video to different degrees. So I don't write that much about Facebook video but Facebook itself. Right. It's still a competitor to all these things at Facebook video one day might be who's winning net flicks. The entire narrative is everyone is responding to Netflix slash Ken net flicks be stopped slash does. Netflix having to kill his. He'll slashes his Netflix. Finally going to have real competition from Disney if everyone is it positioned themselves, says the Netflix Keller are this is the response to net flix even if maybe that's not a hundred percent. True. That means Netflix is winning. Okay. And Disney is the most likely competitor. I mean Amazon seems to be done in a slightly different direction, yet, Amazon for a longtime seemed like the logical sort of Netflix competitor, now, Disney's the by far most obvious. Netflix, competitor, there's a side to that, where you can say, look, they're actually not a competitor there. Most people are going to have both services. That's true. But still Disney is one that is most sort of dramatically overhauled its strategy to sort of take on what Netflix has accomplished. Okay. And so give me give me what they have going for them. They've got a lot of like ten. Poll franchises and stuff. But what is the what's the challenge for them to be a real competitor to net flicks? The challenge for Disney's are starting at zero right.

"Then it became this sort of conversation about 'gate-keeping all of a sudden, Steven Spielberg and other old white men in Hollywood once you stop young, women and filmmakers of color, tell their. Stories on Netflix. And that's what it like muted into which is like Netflix dream. And then basically Netflix releases statement in response being like, we love cinema. We love providing this opportunity for filmmakers sort of thing. So that's my recap of of what we've done there. Devlin says. No, I think that was pretty thorough. Yeah. Netflix. It's kind of position themselves as defenders of cinema, and the sort of, you know, you know, and then people kind of fired back without saying the blue if you love cinema so much. Why do you only have seventeen movies made before nineteen ninety-five or whatever on your? I think that was someone exaggerating, but I don't know the actual numbers. But like Netflix notoriously has really bad catalogue of older movies, which people worry about because you at least you'll used to be able to get those at the video store. Now, you know, how do people access them? So it's been an interesting debate one that also you mentioned, David Varney dramatic, but Paul Schrader who wrote and directed I reformed which is huge critical hidden in two thousand eighteen Oscar nominee for screenplay and Sean Baker who made the Florida project and tan. Green day kind of offered solutions that were somewhat similar in terms of like paying a little extra for streaming service to be able to go see a movie in the theaters, you know, and it was interesting. Some unlike Schrader who's been in the business forever. Kind of saying look these models are changing there needs to be some adaptation, you know, not just from the streaming services side, but from everyone else's, and I think I don't know he seemed to lay out a pretty sober reasonable solution or the beginning of a solution. Yeah. Pulse. Raiders point. I thought it was really interesting that eight twenty four really took their time with first reform. They ruled it out really slowly they played it all over the place, and it really grew in a way that many films. Don't like kind of at was went from kind of being an also ran in Toronto in twenty seventeen to being this autonomy. But that isn't really what they're asking. Netflix to do that. I think that's a really good argument for having these traditional distributors still. But what back to what you said the beginning Joanna whether asking Netflix to do is to play their movies in theaters for four weeks, and as our colleague. Keegan reported at the Hollywood reporter with the Irishman coming marker says he really wants to insist that the Africa released so they were going to do something like that for the Irishman at least anyway..

"Of DVD's, but interest by introducing video on demand via the internet. Netflix grew as DVD sales from two thousand six to two thousand eleven. Think about this. This is a very brave thing to do. Here's a company that made all of its money in DVD rentals, sending them in the mail, having the foresight to say, you know what? Internet speeds for consumers are going up. Our costs are going down to stream video content. What if we move our company into the streaming service and away from the DVD, the physical hard copies? We think that's the way to go. Now I remember back then when they started making this move, and I didn't know what to think. And for a while, there was a tear where you could get both, and then they moved away from that words, either DVD or streaming. And I was in a conundrum because I really kinda was addicted to getting these things in the mail. But I thought, you know what? I'll I'm gonna try the on demand service only the online service only. And of course like everybody else. I never went back because it just it made way too much sense. Yeah. And I, it was incredibly because the two, the two businesses opponent from the fact that the seven content on not remotely alike the logistics around sending DVD's people demand is nothing like streaming a toll. No, an I remember everybody the ice by to when they announced they were going to do this was somewhat confused because it's it's, it's almost like you know, killing the golden goose. You make you money on DVD's and you say, we're not going to do that anymore, or we gonna move away from that, and we're going to move to some of these going to kill our business if it successful, and yet they pulled it off. And then of course, nowadays you look at Netflix and it's almost even like the they're streaming service second, but there are constant company I, yeah. Where removing TV studio. When you think of Netflix, you don't think I'm gonna go watch, you know, such and such movie Netflix, some people do that, but it's about the regional content on networks. That's what you get net flicks for. Yeah. And actually, I was surprised because I, we, we bought into net flicks only relatively recently. We, we've had an impromptu description for longtime. So we've been using Amazon.

"Streaming subscriptions tied together, but people who. Subscribed only to DVD's or only subscribe to the streaming service. They wouldn't have actually seen a price cut in this approach. However, the focus of this announcement was almost exclusively on the price jump for the people who had a joint account like the joint DVD and streaming services. And because of that, Netflix was getting a lot of bad press and customer complaints. So there was a new idea one that a lot of people inside Netflix did not like, but Reed Hastings was very gung ho on going forward with this idea. That idea was to split the two businesses apart and make the DVD side of net flicks its own company and calling it quick stir it would have its own internal corporate structure. It would have its own CEO. It would be free from the streaming business of Netflix, but that also meant. It, it would be a huge change to customers. It meant that the combined plan of DVD's and streaming would become more complicated. Each company would have to maintain its own cues and customer profiles. So if you wanted to have that that joint service of DVD's and streaming video, now you were going to have to have two accounts. You're gonna have a Netflix account and a quick stir account. You have to subscriptions to payments to different cues. If you were, let's say that you had a queue in your streaming service, and you had a queue in the DVD service. And it turns out one of the movies that's on your DVD list becomes available on streaming and you watch it and streaming, and then you're next DVD shows up and it happens to be the same movie. That would be a really frustrating experience, especially since it had originally both come from the same company. People were not happy. Netflix also was not very good at communicating why it was doing this in the first place. And the main reason. Season was to allow the DVD side to focus on delivering rentals with a deep library and do it officially in and with a prophet in mind. While the streaming side could dedicate more resources like time, energy and effort to building out its.

"Netflix ended up extricating itself out of this problem in two thousand fourteen, and that's when it was announced that it was going to pay Comcast for a direct connection from Netflix servers to Comcast's network. So they were no longer employing anyone else to become a content delivery network. They were essentially doing it themselves and paying Comcast for the privilege, but the bigger dispute. It reached something of resolution in two thousand fifteen. Just a short time before the FCC was to start hearing complaints under some new net neutrality rules rules which I should add have since been overturned by the most recent FCC leadership. So the mess keeps on going. Meanwhile, on the executive side over at Netflix Reed, Hastings was apparently becoming less approachable according to the book Netflix, which I have cited several times in these episodes. It was getting harder to change Hastings, mind about things. He would make up his mind on something and challenging. His ideas was becoming more and more difficult to do. Some of his top executives would leave around this time. They saw very little opportunity to grow at Netflix. They saw little indication that they would have a shot at leading the company themselves and figured that they pretty much achieved their goals that they set out to to do when they joined that flakes things like fighting off blockbuster or launching a digital video, you know service, those things had happened already. So rather than just sit around, they decide to leave and take on new challenges or even retire on November twenty second, two thousand ten. Netflix really showed off how it believed the streaming service was going to be. In the future. Because for the first time they would offer customers the option to subscribe to just the streaming part of net flicks is service without the requirement of having a DVD rental service on top of it because up to that point, it was an add on there was no just streaming option for the subscription..

"I should say because the the delivery was still in DVD format. So here's how it was going to work. In fact, here's how it did work. If you signed up for the service, then you could create a q. very similar to what you would do on Netflix of different movies you wanted to watch and based upon the level that you had subscribed to, you would get a number of DVD's from that queue sent to you. After you watched it, you can do one of two things. You could plop the the view DVD back into an envelope and mail it back to blockbuster, whereupon once it was processed, they would send you the next one on your list or you could actually take that DVD and return it to a blockbuster. Store, and if you return it to a blockbuster store that DVD would also act as if it were a free rental coupon, you could immediately rent any movie in that blockbuster store for free. And meanwhile, the blockbuster store would scan in your return, which would immediately indicate to the distribution center to send you the next movie on your queue. So Nali where you're getting a free rental that didn't have to be on your queue at all the next movie under cure. At least the next available movie on your accu- would then get sent to you. So this was a very attractive proposition. It was something that Netflix could not offer because they didn't have those brick and mortar stores, and blockbuster had that, you know, that was an established entrenched model for blockbuster. So this was an opportunity for blockbuster to really put the hurt on net flicks their service attracted more than two million customers in just a few. Short months, and it really posed another big threat to net flicks. Now, the problem for blockbuster was that the way they were pricing, this model was unsustainable. They could not do it indefinitely. They were losing money on every transaction, especially since these returned discs to the blockbuster stores.

"More servers in order to boost capacity, things were not going so hot over in the DVD storage, vault either. In fact, things were pretty chaotic. The laser printer they were using the printout addresses jammed the flurry of activity meant the DVD's soon got out of order and became much more difficult to track down specific discs. And every time the servers came back up, new orders would fly in. So the team was struggling to keep up by the end of the day that orders to send out more than five hundred disks to more than one hundred customers. And this was all done by hand and it was sometime around. Then they also realized, oh, shoot, the internet is always open. We can't close. It's not like from eight PM till six AM where we're shut down. So the sites still has to be active. It's still has to be up available even though we won't be completing anymore orders until the next day. That was a stark realization. They. Soon included a message during high capacity situations that read. Sorry, due to extreme opening week demand, the net flicks store may be slow helping or hindering things was that while Netflix was in development, the DVD player was a novelty right? That people very few people had them, but by the spring of nineteen ninety eight when Netflix was actually launching as a service, it was a different story. The price for DVD players had come down to about half of what they had been and DVD player. Sales were starting to outpace VCR sales. So on late nineteen Ninety-seven the potential customer base was small by spring of nineteen ninety eight that had changed. So it was kind of a right place right time scenario for Netflix movie studios were playing ball to as sales picked up studios began to release more of their libraries on DVD. Now they saw that there was a demand. And for this kind of home entertainment, and they saw the opportunity and they began to jump on that new titles and old became potential revenue generators and Netflix, which was protected by US president that had law that said, accompany can buy and then rent out movies that is totally. Fine by law. If you if you buy a product, you can rent that product out to other people. So Netflix was taking advantage by scooping up copies of as many different titles as it could building out its own library by August nineteen, ninety eight. Those initial five hundred titles were now closer to fifteen hundred and because VHS rental chains like Hollywood video and blockbuster were slow to adopt the DVD format. Netflix had a good running start on them as well. Those companies were so entrenched in the VHS world that the thought of switching lanes and moving to DVD's was really daunting it. It represented an enormous cost for them to be able to change formats like that. So Netflix because it had not been entrenched in another medium was at an advantage. So was not species beginning and we're just getting started. Now in our next episode will look. Look at how net flicks, whether the first year or two of his existence and how it started to come up against what would become its main rival for the first decade of Netflix says, existence as a company that being blockbuster, if you guys have suggestions for future episodes of tech stuff, whether it's a company, a technology, a person tech, whatever it may be, send me an Email.

Those the one that people, I guess objected to at least they, I don't know that there was anyone who is passionately advocating for the name, but there was no one who was in great opposition to it. And so that became the name of the company. There is no logo was in purple and white. It's easy. I forget that that was the case they the net flicks is branding is so so powerful. Now with the red and white scheme that it's easy to forget that originally was purple and white. It had an unspools reel of film as part of the logo design. The red and white color scheme would come much later. They brought on a guy named Corey bridges to work in customer development and bridges had previously worked for Netscape and help launch their internet browser bridges seem. Secretly reached out to influencers and Usenet groups because this was before stuff like YouTube and Instagram and other social media platforms. But he saw those folks in Usenet groups as being really passionate community members and by tapping into people who were really big users in Usenet groups that were focusing on film discussion and asking them if they would participate in a beta program that Netflix was going to hold. He got a lot of responses, especially when he said that they would be allowed to be the first people to write about this new service. Once it was raised lunch, the day would essentially have the scoop on everyone else and has promotional plan worked like gangbusters. They signed up eagerly to test out this service on April fourteenth nineteen ninety eight. The company was ready to go live. They had built up a library of DVD's and they attested the features with their beta testers. Reed Hastings who had provided the seed money had mainly stayed out of the actual development process while all of this creative work was going on. This was Mark Randolph's show for that initial few months setting up the company, but as did our arrive at the company and watch as they actually went online. So he was there on hand for launch day. In fact, the story goes that some of the other employees didn't even know who read Hastings was they had never even really chatted with him at this point. So while the team was working on Netflix, Hastings had actually gone back to pursue more graduate studies at Stanford. And here's one way that Netflix was a very different service when it first launched than it would become later on and why the story about Hastings and those late fees doesn't ring terribly true. Even before we heard about Mark Randolph's version of the story. When that flicks I went, live users didn't get to subscribe to rent films indefinitely and just.

Like it's started getting integrated into some TV's, but the biggest thing was like twenty ten was around win the video game systems started supporting the streaming. So it was like, oh, all these people have systems. Interesting fact here. In twenty eleven like forty. Two percent of streams happened on computer that wasn't interested me. Twenty five percent of views happened on Nintendo. We thought we wasn't. Late to the game, you had to put in a disc into the we to make Netflix work early on because we had a we when we were living together and who will step back now is very confusing sentence. We had a, we what? What? What. You and I just didn't intendo entertain of you. Remember that I also call a house meeting when I got that streaming disc, Netflix just send us a disc that they never want back. And then we were very expensive box that we couldn't even watch the boondock saints that box. It's all about being this disc in waiting for that to load. And then watching it on the we hear, I do remember thinking it was weird when you're going to request that disk and then you're like putting a q. and it would take a while in my home recently wound up in Weird weird. like a killer's calling card or something mean was no. This is the one that we had like at the toes. Tim, I burn that disc years ago. Idea. Remember. Killed somebody or somebody's after me, hey, look, whatever you say, man. I remember thinking it was weird that that this came in like a regular Netflix container or envelope envelope, but they're gonna make new envelope. Never never have to send this back. Wow. World. What a world? Yeah. So I still definitely have a few Netflix DVD's that I reported as missing. And then like found later what they make you pay like twenty dollars for him or something. Right? No, usually they were like, no, no problem. Oh, missing in the mail? Yeah, I'd say no, I mailed. I gave them to the mailman I told him it was important to give them back to you. He didn't bring them back. Boy, I've had problems with him. Read read, you gotta believe me. I'm trying to do the right thing. I'm trying to get these TVs back. A lot of people wanna watch the boondock saints. I want them to one. I mainly Stewart's real real frigging can of worms with this guy. Another interesting fact that I read it was in twenty thirteen because I remember because I used to work for a video website and we ran into this problem. No, not pornography site, but a pornography related problem where we were unable. And so as Netflix, we later found out once we ran into problems to automatically share what people were watching on Facebook stinks and nobody wants to do of course. Well, this is like a little bit of a different time, but like Netflix wanted you to be able to be like, hey, I'm watching the boondock saints. I can post. Like we know and no does, so are we? But I don't want them to know that I'm watching Jade. Yeah, it's a real nut exactly. Look if somebody like Tim boondock saints who'll awesome next time I see him a high five situation. Yeah, Jade. I know what he's doing. Do you know why that was a legal, the sharing of, yeah, no, it was the the video Privacy Act of nineteen Eighty-eight because only Bono. No, maybe it was him. Reagan had nominated, Nissan all drink. Ronald Reagan had nominated a new supreme court. Justice said some guy..

"Countered I net flicks boxes like eighty bucks. It was like surprisingly affordable that box ever got updated to be able to play anything else. I think you could only do Netflix, and then everybody's like, well, will we be able to watch boondock saints? Well, not yet, but God willing one day it'll be. Jade. Can I borrow that box and put it in my room and watch Jade. Now you can't look if you unplug it is I'm gonna work anymore. Eight has to be plugged into this hardwired connection in our home every week, and they forty dollars late fees for Jade. Is hoping this would solve my problem. Say that's how the streaming started. Okay. So then so they had streaming and then streaming ramped up, but two thousand eleven. It wasn't like like he was knickknack right? The the, no. I look there. These God damn suburbanites that are just like. Like all the new movies I writ bucks. Oh, I signed up for Netflix streaming. Why can't I get this new movie?

"Net, flicks dot com. Yeah, movies delivered its old, redirect. Yes. So at one point they tried to make thing called quick Stor which was going to be at Titas and ten eleven? I think people were livid. Yes. So basically, this was Netflix. It always used to be. You got a DVD plan and then on top of that, you got the streaming. Now streaming started, what are we can say two thousand six, two thousand seven thousand seven. Documents. I was trying to look it up today. Recently they had they came out with a list of all the original streaming titles they had when they first lost. And like I remember the David Wayne movie, the ten was on there, and I was like, oh sweet. This is going to be a lot like independent releases and then like nothing else. And like nothing ever changed for like six months. And yeah, there were not new things on there and you could kinda watch it on your computer, but like he was still in the time. Whereas like you really need to tell me, you're going to stream movies, I can barely get this QuickTime movie. Not buffer every look. I'm still using the real player, my player, Microsoft silver light to get this work. And but then I remember we were roommates at the time and you're like there's a Netflix box for TV TV and art TV only I think you were like everybody. I've bought this net flicks Roku. That was the first Asian. The rookie right net flicks branded. Yeah, it had originally Netflix was going to make their own box and call the net flicks. So two things I, we were gonna make a Netflix spock's that like you would decide at night. What movie you wanted to see. Boondock saints and download it overnight and keep overnight. Yeah. Jesus Christ. Because it took so long. So it was like overnight. And then then you still have to commit to movie. Yeah. And then the next day we'll be ready for your girlfriend's like, I don't like this movie. I spent nine and a half hours downloading this watching the boondock saints. Yeah. Again. But then once YouTube took off, they were like, oh, there's an, you can stream movies instead of download them. So that's when they started their streaming thing, but they were originally gay, make Netflix box streaming box themselves, and then very wisely. They were like, like if we do this, like nobody else's going to like make a Netflix box because there to compete with us and nobody's going to want wanna do that because we could screw them over at any point. So they were the biggest investors integration. They were the biggest investors in Roku and Roku started. Like it wasn't. There wasn't like a subsidiary, but they were mostly owned by Netflix. Anna, what the deal is nowadays, business Steph, you wouldn't understand me and other guys. Steph we talk about if between talking about the mad magazine stuff. So they were going to do it that way, or they did do it that way. And that's how I don't know if you remember. But like, yeah, the Roku boxes, like the only way to watch Netflix on TV for like maybe six months and then out of nowhere. It was like, you can watch it on anything. I remember you were like roommate meeting and. Poor. We're like four of us living in one apartment. Yeah, I've bought this net flicks so we can watch these twelve streaming independent movies costs four hundred and fifty dollars. So everybody just leave one hundred twenty dollars..

You put on any anywhere for making out to to Penn forum. Allow, but the stipulation is movie or television program has to be streaming in the background. Yeah. I mean, it's basically just the old, the old standby. You know, I guess not all generations had this, but like for our generation, it would have just been like when we were in college or whatever, like, hey, come over and watch a boondock saints. Yeah, everybody everybody every weekend, every dorm room on the floor that boondock saints in the DVD player in a sock on the door. It was just like, hey, come over and like watch a movie or something. And it's like, yeah, we all know what's really happened, but you're not.

They had to watch rebel without a cause. Yeah, actually, it might have been the opposite might have been that the speakers were better than like your car radio. I can't imagine that back in the day like when it was like, oh, well, we could broadcast us via AM signal to your car, and he can listen to this movie mono, but no children, we're not Netflixing and chilling. We're net flicks and pilling. We're taking pill nowhere net flicks and thrill killing.
