I would think you should still be seeing it if it was there before and you have that subscription level. It moves around a bit though.

Supernatural season 12 was added to Netflix's lineup today. I skipped watching the last few episodes of the season after showing a friend who is a fan of "The Flash" how it looks on Netflix. Worth...

I stopped watching about the third to the last episode because I knew it was coming on Netflix and at better quality than I was getting with CW's Roku app and of course no ads. Well season 12 is...

Watched "Dig Two Graves" starring Ted Levine on Netflix last night. A bit of a supernatural thriller. Good 1977 period piece.

Yeah, I'm still waiting for the third ISP in this town, Wave, to come down the block here. They have better rates and speeds than the two usual suspects who populate the poles. Plus I can use my...

The glass box to me represented a homage to the "Dune" movie. This show is filled with homages.

Madeline Zima fans should check out the first season of "Californication". Speaking of which how...

Which is why maybe those expensive broadcast units need to have plug-in codec support so you can add codecs without replacing the unit. It's just in the chips! But some of our resident equipment...

And h.264 is what they use because there are so many devices out there that don't yet have the better codecs such as HEVC or VP9 (soon AV1). How much of that is still "main profile" h.264? :D

I think the problem is that HDR is free and Dolby Vision is a license. I expect that AV1 with HDR will win out in the long run because it's royalty free (not to mention open source). Times have...

AV1 is based on VP9/VP10. I would assume it would perform somewhat as well. VP9 can be sped up using thread setting. I haven't looked to see if there are any betas of VP10 available yet or AV1.

I watched "Viral" on Netflix last night. Stars Sofia Black-D'Elia ("The Mick"). Good sci-fi horror. Four thumbs up. "Clown" is also available there.
