‘Orange Is the New Black’ Piracy Soars for Season 2 Debut, But ‘House of Cards’ Was Bigger (Variety)

Netflix original ‘OITNB’ season 2 notched 55,668 illegal downloaders in first two days of release

If piracy is a gauge of popularity, Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” second season is not as big a hit as “House of Cards” — and neither series holds a candle to HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the world’s most-pirated TV show.

In the first two days of its release, “OITNB” season 2 episodes… [Read more on Variety]

Radio is the New Netflix. Here’s Your Binge Listening Guide. (Xconomy)

“Binge watching” TV shows wasn’t possible until the advent of full-season DVD sets in the late 1990s. And while bingeing was common enough in the 2000s—I definitely remember a few weekends spent inhaling 24, BSG, and The Wire—it didn’t really leap into the mainstream until 2013, when Netflix began streaming whole seasons of shows like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black all at once.

Bingeing is addictive, as Portlandia’s Fred Armison and Carrie Brownstein dramatized in their ROFL-inducing skit One More Episode of Battlestar Galactica. You find a show you like, clear your schedule, stock up on popcorn and frozen pizza, and watch until your eyes turn to sandpaper. But this isn’t necessarily the kind of high that leaves you hollow and drained. Assuming you’ve picked a good show, you get to… [Read more on Xconomy]

Just days before the 2012 election, The Economist published “The Woes of Netflix: Looks Bleak,” a candid assessment of the Internet streaming media company’s announcement of an 88 percent drop in its third quarter profit. For those tuned into day-to-day operations, it was an ominous, but not-so-surprising development:

“American subscriptions have slowed, and its international push has been wobbly,” the magazine noted, including a quote from an industry analyst who observed that… [Read more on The Huffington Post]

A big bet, backed by lots of data: why Netflix renewed Orange is the New Black (Gigaom)

Netflix loves Orange is the New Black so much that it has renewed the hit show for a third season before it even released the second season — which makes a lot of sense for Netflix.

News of the re-up was broken by one of the show’s actresses Monday, according to Reuters, and the video service went on to confirm the news.  The move is kind of remarkable because it speaks to the success Orange has enjoyed. Netflix has never released ratings for any of its shows, but the company said… [Read more on Gigaom]

The multimillion-dollar question is being raised as ratings secrecy clouds cast renegotiations. Says one lawyer, “We’ve got to find a new metric.”

Seated among top television showrunners at a Hollywood Reporter roundtable in late March, Orange Is the New Black‘s Jenji Kohan had much to gloat about. Her Netflix prison dramedy has garnered sterling reviews and Emmy buzz in advance of its season-two debut June 6, and without the pressure of ratings, she is free to take… [Read more on The Hollywood Reporter]

Netflix Ups Betting on Original Content (The Street)

NEW YORK (TheStreet) – Netflix (NFLX_) sees its top competitor as Time Warner‘s (TWX_)HBO and boosting its original content offerings is how the streaming service plans to best the Game of Thrones-producing network.

“We are approaching 50 million global members, but that is far short of HBO’s 130 million. We are eager to close the gap,” Netflix’s management writes in a letter to shareholders on Monday announcing first-quarter earnings.

The Los Gatos, Calif.-based Netflix earned 86 cents a share on $1.27 billion in revenue for the March 31-ending quarter, as the company surpassed … [Read more on The Street]
