The director of Netflix's Fyre Festival documentary, Chris Smith, told Business Insider that he was tipped off that Hulu was going to release its Fyre doc ahead of his movie's release.

Netflix's 18% price hike shows it got too comfortable being the only game in town, and it could be a costly mistake (NFLX, DIS, T, CMCSA)

Netflix's price hike, announced Tuesday, could hurt the company eventually, if not immediately, Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter said. Customers may not notice it right away, but may pay more attention later this year when Disney launches a rival service with movies and shows that are no longer on Netflix, he said. Few consumers are likely to choose more than one pure streaming service, and Netflix's price hike has left it vulnerable to price competition, he added. Netflix's price hike may com...

Celebrity Doppelgängers That'll Make You Do A Double Take

Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage. It's almost eerie how much some celebrities resemble each other. Just look at the star of Netflix's Sex Education, British actress Maeve Wiley — she looks just like Margot Robbie. Enough so that when you Google her name, Margot Robbie's name pops up right after it. But these two actresses both share high cheekbones, they aren't related at all, and probably haven't even met (yet.) Yet, the two of them could easily share a passport or star in a madcap series of...

Remember, way back on January 2 when Netflix issued a warning to its customers over the viral meme to “PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE?” That warning wasn’t heard or followed by at least one 17-year-old in Utah who decided to give the challenge — which involves a blindfold — a whirl while driving. The result was what one might expect. There was a crash (hat tip CNN, which spotted the tweet from Layton Police). Bird Box Challenge while driving…predictable result...
