Netflix brings CBS to more countries, Mad Men to US

Posted in Netflix by Reuben Drake on July 27th, 2011

Still upset about the Netflix price hike? Well, maybe this will help. They are busy trying to get more content. Netflix has reached an agreement with CBS Corp. that will allow some of the network’s programming to be streamed to foreign markets. The deal includes CBS shows like “Californication,” “Dexter,” “Numb3rs” and “Twin Peaks.”

Many of the networks’ most popular series are excluded of course. Netflix operates in Canada and is expanding to 43 countries in Latin America, with other foreign markets coming soon. Netflix has also added “Mad Men” to its streaming option. Starting today, the first four seasons of the show are available to Netflix’s US customers.

iTunes is a smoke free zone

iTunes is a smoke free zone
We entered the Politically Correct or PC age sometime in the 90’s, and the effect that it has had on censorship, whether blatant or mild, continues in one form or another to this day. Take the above image for instance. Moronic as it may seem, the cigarette in the hand of the man in the Mad Men promotional image was digitally removed when it was placed on iTunes.

Apparently Apple thinks that anyone who sees (a rough poster outline) of a man smoking, will begin smoking a pack a day immediately. It proves one thing I’ve known for years: Consumers are not nearly as stupid as those in charge of making such idiotic decisions as whether to remove a cigarette from a TV character’s hand or not. Yeah, people have been having trouble getting their iPhone to work for like a week, but they have the cigarette until control, never you fear.
