Netflix's new content deal addresses is going to be a long awaited bliss to its subscribers

Netflix will never give up the war of winning.  This time Netflix grabbed its place by securing exclusive streaming rights to the CW. Netflix has signed a multiyear deal with CBS Corporation and Warner Bros entertainment. Netflix is given exclusive access to full seasons of The Flash, Supergirl, The Cee Dubs, Crazy EX Girlfriend, and The Vampire Diaries which will be telecasted just after 8 days after the show's season finale.
This indeed is great news for all those who were waiting forever for new seasons in Netflix. This of course addresses the previous weakness of Netflix for the CW shows. As of April 2016, Netflix has over 81 million subscribers worldwide which includes more than 46 million in the US and the rest in 190 countries. This will seemingly have an increase in the count with this deal going live.


Waiting for a fresh season of an ongoing show on Netflix is a real pain. For example the Netflix broadcasted the animated secret agent comedy Archer show just few days before the next season started airing in FX.
This was a chance for the competitors like Hulu to take advantage and offer new TV shows immediately after it’s been aired.  This attracted the audiences who want to stay up to date on the latest shows.
Netflix made sure that the CW programs are broadcasted immediately with no wait as before. Securing the shows is just one of Netflix's moves to secure its customers and audiences and to have a winning position among the HBO Go and Amazon Prime Video.
When coming to secure its position with Hulu whose potential strength is into live programming, Netflix is throwing its strength on premiere shows of the CW's like The CW's Archie comic reboot, Riversale.

Xiaomi Mi 5s may come with a 3D Touch sensor

The Chinese smart phone maker Xiaomi has planned to make a premium entry in the mobile market with the introduction of two variants of Mi 5 namely the Xiaomi Mi 5S and Xiaomi Mi 5 Mini. The company says that these smart phones are definitely priced high but then it also delivers big features.  Let’s talk about the Mi 5s as it has some interesting features attached to it and there are a lot of rumour talks about this smart phone.  The all new Mi 5s comes with a 3D touch similar to the Apple iPhone 6s. It is expected to come with a metallic build and pressure sensitive display. The Mi 5 s is a 5.5 inch version of Xiaomi's flagship Mi 5 and will be released in the second half of this year.


There are no sources to reveal about the chipset of Mi 5S but speculation suggest that it is a highly configured model with Snapdragon 820 processor.  The smart phone also has a QUALCOMM’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner which was expected in Xiaomi Mi 5. It has a dual rear camera in its front panel.  The rumours also report that it houses 6 GB of RAM which we haven’t seen in the mobile industry so far.
However, the 3D is the highlight feature of the Mi 5s. As we have already seen the 3D touch in the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, it allows users to long press on certain app icon and it open ups a list of options. The Mi 5s will be delivering a similar 3D experience but with next level of development where it offers short cuts to most of the used features.
It is indeed a long wait for all the mobile lovers to explore the new functionality of 3D touch.

After Apple, it is Google Play Music that is finally making its way to India, Can you believe it?

Finally, we are here with Google Play Music entering India very soon.
Several users were able to select songs from the apps catalogue through web version which was inaccessible earlier in India. The Indian price tagged is now seen for the download which is in INR. Google has priced the songs for a very reasonable charge say it to be like from Rs.15 per song and Rs.95 for an album.  But then when you compare the prices with Apple music, Google is definitely charging you more. Apple music provides Rs.7 for each song and Rs.70 for an entire album. The Google Play Music was launched in 2011 with unlimited downloads and other streaming services for $9.99 in the US, we have to wait and watch for the pricing in India. The Google Play music has 35 million songs and has already established its services in 58 countries.  
So what made its entry delay in India?

 Loyalty related issues and copyrights kept Google away from the Indian market up till now. In a country like India, where people prioritise cost effectiveness as a key point, it can be a tough challenge for Google Play Music to have its stand among Saavn, Hungama, Apple Music and other competitors.

Another big challenge for Google is its late entry into the Indian market. As there are apps like Saavn and Hungama who already took a lead in the country and have gained a stronghold, it is definitely a challenge for them.

There are also rumours that the YouTube red will shortly be striking the Indian listeners. This app which runs on Google Play Music allows you to watch ad-free videos and save videos offline and play videos in the background. It looks like Google is testing the feature in India so the launch shouldn’t be very far. It is likely to say that Google will release both the services simultaneously.
