Desperate Netflix Scammer Begs Woman For New Password

Getting that "too many users" message on Netflix is always frustrating. It's even more frustrating when you have to track down all the people you've given that damn password to. Is it your ex streaming anime trash? Your cousin? Your mom's friend Stella who has a crush on Anthony Bourdain (RIP?). The list is daunting. When this woman started receiving emails that account was being accessed, she figured it had to be her ex. She was wrong. 

After close inspection, our hero discovered that the culprits were in Lahore, Pakistan. To add insult to injury, there were too many people using her account for her to stream her own media. So she changed her password. After making the liberating change, one of the Pakistani men who had been using her account actually reached out in the hopes of acquiring her new one. 

Fat. Chance.

'Disney Plus And Thrust' Is The New And Raunchier 'Netflix And Chill'

Memers are horny AF, apparently. We're moving past Netflix and Chill and onto "Disney+ and Thrust" with the release of Disney's new streaming service. While we find this new meme trend amusing, we have to say that asking someone to come over and "Netflix and chill" is far less awkward than asking them to come over in order to "Disney+ and thrust." But maybe that's just us...

Memes That Roast The Plethora Of Streaming Services

Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, and now Disney+? Sometimes more choices are not necessarily a good thing. Disney just ditched Netflix and came out with its own streaming service this week and the internet is pretty divided on where they stand with it. 

Now instead of paying one flat fee for a multitude of TV shows and movies on one streaming service, you can pay a bunch of little fees for a million different companies who don't give a sh*t about you! And predictably, those costs add up.

Our solution to all of this? Don't pay for any of them! For legal reasons we can't tell you to pirate anything, so we won't. 

Anyway, take a little stroll through the following memes and tweets that roast the stupid number of streaming services available to us now.

Girl Gets Fired After Revealing The Truth About Panera's Mac And Cheese

We cannot say this enough: always use restraint when using social media at work or when posting about work. You never know when your shitpost will go viral. Tiktok user  @briannaraelenee learned this the hard way after posting from the kitchen at the Panera Bread where she worked. Her video, which shows Brianna Ramirez preparing mac and cheese - by heating a plastic bag. The video exposed some of Panera's less wholesome cooking methods, and caused feelings of outrage and betrayal among Panera patrons. The revelatory video went so viral, that according to Brianna, it was featured on her town's news - which led to her firing. A brave sacrifice so that we could all learn the truth.

'The Office' Is Leaving Netflix And People Are Not Handling It Well At All

Netflix tweeted yesterday that The Office, America's most beloved TV show, is leaving to be a part of NBC's own streaming service and people are not happy about it in the slightest. We can't really blame them, given the volume of new streaming services that the average person is now required to purchase in order to watch their favorite shows. Fortunately though, Netflix will keep the show until January 2021 so fans have ample time to watch (and re-watch) it to their heart's content!

Here are some of Twitter's reactions to the sad news.

YouTube launches its video game streaming site.

Twitch has dominated the new market of video game streaming and now YouTube wants a cut of the action.

As they announced at the beginning of the summer, YouTube has planned to launch YouTube Gaming, a separate site dedicated to streaming, watching and chatting about video games. On Aug. 26, they began a slow release of the new platform.

Mashable says the introduction is fairly painless:

Getting started is a simple process of navigating your browser over to gaming.youtube.com and following the steps in a setup process (that includes phone verification). You'll need to set up encoding software, fill out the necessary info for your stream and tick off any optional features. There's a checklist right there on the setup page, but Google also put together a more involved guide to getting set up.

YouTube Gaming supports streaming from PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One consoles, provided you've got a capture device sending video from the console to your computer. Google specifically calls out Elgato's HD60 as a YouTube Live Verified device, but there's a good chance that other game capture solutions work as well. If you've got one, try it out before you run out and buy something new.



Apparently, mobile apps for Android and iOS are also around the corner so you can watch your gaming of the go.

The launch comes only a year after Google prepared a heaping ton of money to purchase Twitch, but then Amazon swooped in with $970 million and bought the streaming service.

There's no telling yet whether the search giant will have any luck in a space already dominated by Twitch and executives at the leading streamer seem to think not.

Matthew DiPietro, Twitch's SVP of Marketing released a statement Aug. 25, basically bragging about how their numbers are so much bigger:



For our current stats, we have 1.5 million broadcasters (11K Partnered channels), 100 million viewers per month who watch 106 minutes per person per day on average, and 38 million installs of our mobile app with 4.7 billion minutes watched across 10.3 million unique devices.

Oh, you're skipping E3 and streaming your announcement yourself? It'd be a shame if half the planet couldn't load it...
