We’re back, you jive turkeys! In this tenth episode of the Netpix Podcast, we discuss the arrival of select Marvel series to Netflix’s TV line-up, Blockbuster Canada’s current status, and Netflix’s plans to expand into Latin America. We then have a look at Mongol, Beer Wars, Black Dynamite, and Intacto. Grab a cold one from your local brewery and have a listen; you might just get lucky.
– Netflix adds new Marvel shows to its selection, including titles like Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Astonishing X-Men: Gifted (Marvel Knights Animation), Silver Surfer, and Spider-Man Unlimited. With more to come in the summer, we’re hoping they add our own childhood favourites!
– Blockbuster Canada has entered receivership (which isn’t as bad as it sounds). It simply means that it’s up for sale to cover the debts incurred by Blockbuster USA and is still remarkably profitable, generating $400 million in 2010.
– Netflix is said to be seeking media rights in Latin America. While it’s still unclear which countries are being looked at specifically, it’s certain that bandwidth availability will play a large role in their decision.
