Netflix is losing a lot of long-term subscribers

People are switching

Published

The Netflix revolution was indeed televised. However, after enjoying years of success as the streaming platform of choice, a lot of users are now leaving Netflix for greener pastures. Over the past few months, the company has struggled to patch its failures. A recently released data report does confirm that the platform has a right to worry. More and more long-term subscribers are reportedly cutting their subscriptions short.

According to The Information, around 13 percent of Netflix cancelers in the past quarter are from accounts that have been with the platform for over three years. The data, which was reportedly obtained from Antenna, pegs cancelations at around 3.6 million Americans, a big increase from the 2.5 million of the past five quarters.

Though 13 percent isn’t exactly a giant figure, it’s still a blow to Netflix’s empire. While streaming platform rightly focus on gaining new subscribers, losing the loyalty of long-term users isn’t something to shrug off.

Since announcing lost expectations, Netflix announced ways to save on costs and retain its subscribers. Other methods include canceling projects, opening a games division, and potentially charging users more for account sharing. Naturally, not every plan hits users the same way.

In the meantime, other platforms — like Disney+, HBO, and Hulu — are attracting more users with more varied and exclusive content. Regardless, Netflix is skidding down a slope. Only time will tell whether its latest strategies will stave off more losses.

IFA 2022 gets greenlit for in-person event

A stunning return

Published

The COVID-19 pandemic has rightly locked the tech industry into a standstill. It was vastly unsafe to congregate in groups for fear of contracting the virus. However, with vaccines and better healthcare, the world is slowly going back to normal. Events which were once canceled are now returning to the big stage. Joining that roster, IFA 2022 has now received the greenlight for an official event this year.

It’s been two years since the last IFA event. While 2020 was the height of the pandemic, the event’s organizers also canceled a return last year amid the resurgence of other variants. Now, all obstacles are gone.

IFA Berlin has officially confirmed that IFA 2022 will take place between September 2 through 6. Super-early-bird tickets are already available for EUR 35 if you happen to be in the area.

More importantly, the organizers are also confirming that two-thirds of the event’s exhibitors are going back to the event for presentations. Likewise, retail groups will make a return to Berlin.

Berlin isn’t the only major event making a return this year. Computex has also announced an in-person event this year between May 24 to 27. Likewise, MWC 2022 happened earlier this year, spotlighting major players in the industry.

Honor teases Honor 70 series launching soon

Two giant cameras

It’s flagship time! After some wait, Honor is unveiling its next flagship series by the end of the month. Ahead of the launch, the company also released some teaser images for the upcoming device. Dubbed the Honor 70 series, the new flagship aims to dazzle a sleek-looking rear and a behemoth of a camera setup.

At first glance, the most apparent aspect of the Honor 70 series is its two huge peepers. The phone’s rear seemingly has two camera modules placed beside each other. While the main lens is reportedly a 54-megapixel sensor, not much was revealed about the other shooters.

Also apparent is the diamond stylings of the rear panel. Likewise, the rear looks like it has curved edges for a handier grip. Honor is digging in deeper to develop a more premium look for its fans.

Unfortunately, the previews don’t spoil what the front panel looks like. The company wants to keep some secrets to itself before the launch on May 30.

Though the previews don’t reveal as much, the series will likely come in various models: a regular, a Pro, and a Pro+ variant. In other rumors, the series might also use a combination of different chipsets depending on variant: the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, the Dimensity 8100, and the Dimensity 9000.

With freeing itself from Huawei, Honor has pushed for a comeback. Its previous flagships and smartphones tell as much. Once the Honor 70 series launches on May 30, the Chinese company has the potential to wow more fans.
