For the 7.95 (6.75, $8.70) To the max monthly plan, youre given unlimited speed, 3TB of data and 40 connections. Lastly, you can get a block plan for a one-off payment of 15 (12.70, $16.40).

If you're Netflix , then you undoubtedly want episodes of your original shows to be as closely guarded as possible - if they find their way out onto the web at large, then fewer people are going to sign up for a monthly subscription package. With that in mind, the powers-that-be at the streaming service are likely to be fuming that new episodes of Orange is the New Black have leaked online more than a month before the official premiere date of June 9, as TorrentFreak reports . At least 10 episodes of the fifth season have now appeared on The Pirate Bay, thanks to a hacking group that goes by the name of thedarkoverlord . According to the hackers, Netflix was asked for an OITNB ransom that it didn't pay. Hacked off It sounds like the breach happened at a post-production studio used by Netflix.

The company cited data from comScore and SimilarWeb to say that Amazon.in was the most visited platform on both desktop and mobile devices. It also quoted app analytics firm App Annnie to claim that Amazon was India's most downloaded shopping app. PRIME NUMBERS One of its key recent investment areas has been the Prime service.

If you're a proud pup parent, you're not buying any old pet food. You're buying the special stuff from a place you trust. That's the dynamic that undergirds the $70 billion pet industry and has helped ecommerce companies flourish despite big box competitors and the ever-present Amazon. It also led to the biggest deal in e-commerce history when PetSmart announced its recent $3.4 billion acquisition of Chewy.com, a deal that surprised plenty who didn't think of our furry friends as much of a tech-business opportunity. "Maybe it's because the dogs are so amazing and so cute that people expect the industry to be the same," says Henrik Werdelin, co-founder of Bark & Co., the company behind the dog toy subscription delivery service Barkbox.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed that the soon-to-be-launched Xbox Games Pass has the potential to be a place for Xbox to release new first-party games. Announced earlier this year and set to officially launch in Spring, Xbox Games Pass is a subscription service for Xbox owners that will give access to a library of over 100 games for a monthly fee of 7.99/$9.99/AU$10.95. Though on launch the games available through Games Pass will largely be a back-catalog of existing Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles, Spencer said that it could potentially be used as a platform to release more original episodic story-based games like those we've seen from Telltale or Square Enix's Hitman. Risk assessment In the interview Spencer admits that from a business standpoint it's increasingly difficult and more risky to commit to creating these narrative-heavy titles as their audiences are less consistent than those who commit to ongoing online-based games like The Division.

Nietes vs. Nantapech Fight Info Where: Cebu City Waterfront Hotel Casino in Cebu City, Philippines When: Saturday, April 29 at 6 a.m. ET (6pm local time) Live Stream: TFC.tv (region restricted, subscription required) Nietes has been excellent for so long now, his victories must seem preordained in the eyes of many. Though he lacks the recognition of other Filipino greats like Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire, Nietes has quietly gone about his craft, dominating opponents in his home country and performing well in the occasional foray abroad. Two of his last three fights, against Sosa and Juan Alejo, came at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles. He put in excellent showings in both of those contests, winning all but two rounds on the six judges' scorecards, per BoxRec.com . It's probably too late for him to become a big draw overseas, but there's nothing wrong with dominating at the lighter weights and putting on consistent shows for his legions of fans in the Philippines.

As for its UniFi service, 22% of the 640,000 UniFi subscribers have had their services upgraded to double speed at the same price, of their subscription package. TM is hoping to upgrade all of its subscribers to its VIP 17 plan, which provides doubled internet speed at the same price by the end of this year. “For VIP 19, we are still engaging with the government and the regulators in terms of what are their expectations on that,” he said on the VIP 19 plan, which offers doubled speed at half the price. However, Bazlan said TM does not see the move impacting its average revenue per user (ARPU). Acknowledging the growing customers gravitation towards non-voice services, Bazlan said both TM’s non-voice services (which contributed 75% to its revenue) and voice services will propel its revenue growth to its headline key performance indicator of 4%. Bazlan said TM is also in the mode of investing and marketing its non-voice services such as LTE, cloud, Internet of Things and others.

Some people left because ESPN's the most expensive cable network, and they don't watch sports. Cable operators charge subscribers, on average, $7.86 per month for ESPN, according to SNL Kagan. Many cord-cutters have dumped cable altogether. They access their shows on Netflix and Amazon , and might be watching ESPN on streaming platforms like Sling TV, and soon, Hulu. ESPN is also planning to roll out its own subscription-based streaming service. The problem: the network has not recouped as much money on this alternative services as it has lost in traditional cable subscription and advertising revenues. Some younger consumers don't pay for cable in the first place, and probably never will. Our studies make it very clear, says Steven Beck, managing partner at cg42, a consultancy. Consumers want content on their terms.
