Local television networks in the Philippines failed to reach an agreement with the NBA to air full games on free TV in the country. Fear not though as the NBA still sees the Philippines as a huge market and will live stream games on the official Facebook and Twitter pages of NBA Philippines.

There will be a live game on opening week which is from October 23 to 29. Starting October 31, live stream of games will be every Mondays and Thursdays.

“The Philippines is one of the world’s leaders in social media penetration and usage with over 17 million followers of the league’s social media accounts, making it an ideal platform to livestream NBA content. With NBA games on Facebook Watch and Twitter, we are empowering the digital lifestyle of our fans with the ability to enjoy the NBA anytime, anywhere,” says NBA Philippines Managing Director Carlo Singson on a report from ESPN5.

Here are the games that will be broadcast live during tip-off week:

Oct. 23, 10:30 AM — Los Angeles Lakers @ LA Clippers

Oct. 24, 7:30 AM — Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers

Oct. 25, 8:00 AM — Milwaukee Bucks @ Houston Rockets

Oct. 26, 10:30 AM — Utah Jazz @ Los Angeles Lakers

Oct. 27, 8:00 AM — New Orleans Pelicans @ Houston Rockets

Oct. 28, 7:00 AM — Portland Trail Blazers @ Dallas Mavericks

Oct. 29, 8:00 AM — Oklahoma City Thunder @ Houston Rockets

Got a favorite team? There’s always NBA League Pass

If that’s not enough for you, there’s always NBA League Pass where you have the option to follow just one team or if you’re a hoop junkie, get a subscription that gives you access to all of the games. Simply download the NBA App on the App store or Google Play and choose your preferred subscription.

Netflix might limit password sharing between users

In order to gain more revenues?

Published

on

Netflix isn’t chill when it comes to password sharing. During its third-quarter earnings interview, the streaming giant discussed its plans. The company tackled users sharing one account to find a way around paying for a monthly subscription.

Netflix CFO Spencer Neumann says the company is continuing to monitor the situation. Neumann added, ”We’ll see those consumer-friendly ways to push on the edges of that.”

It’s still unclear on how Netflix will limit password sharing since the streaming giant didn’t announce anything specific. Netflix’s goal seems to restrict account sharing to people living in the same household. Some speculate that the company will take a look into IP addresses, but it poses a problem for families living apart. But for now, you can still enjoy sharing your account with friends and families as Netflix claimed they have “no big plans to announce at this time in terms of doing something different.”

 

Presently, users can log onto Netflix regardless of how many devices they have. Its only limitation — depending on the subscription plan — is how many people can stream all at the same time. In the near future, it isn’t surprising for Netflix to push through with their plans to limit password sharing since the competition with Disney+ and Apple TV+ is getting tight. In order to gain more revenue, Netflix might have to convert people to pay for their own subscription.

In the official support page of Datally, Google notes that the app is not available on the Play store. True enough, visiting the link to Datally throws the app not found error.

Users of the mobile data saving app can continue using it, but the app will not receive future updates. To speed up its discontinuation, the app is giving a warning that it is incompatible with Android 10. So, users who upgraded to the latest OS can’t use the app anymore.

Datally launched last 2017 to help users control their mobile data usage. The app shows the data usage of every app as well as overall data usage metrics. It also let users block background data.
