‘Star Trek,’ ‘Twin Peaks’ will be streamed online by Netflix | Hero Complex – Los Angeles Times

Joe Flint at Company Town blog reports that a new enterprise — which might be worth $200 million to CBS — will allow Trekkies to get their Starfleet fix via Netflix. Here’s an excerpt.

CBS Corp. has cut a deal with Netflix to give its customers access to classic TV including “Star Trek,” “Cheers,” “Twin Peaks” and “Family Ties.”

The two-year, non-exclusive deal will allow Netflix customers to stream online assorted CBS-owned library content along with the various other movies and television product Netflix offers for streaming, at prices that start at $7.99 per month.

Terminating #Cat5e cables on patch panel, before data rack and Time Warner #fiber arrive

Getting some work done ahead of time, so I'm not stepping on toes, the day the IT contractor arrives with the data rack, switches and server(s). Time Warner is also bringing in fiber (as seen in picture)

Great article by @Tim_Stevens - Amazon launches Prime instant videos, unlimited streaming for Prime subscribers

Amazon launches unlimited video streaming for Prime subscribers
We heard it was coming and now here it is. Amazon has flipped the switch on its "free" video streaming for Prime members, the service we've been hearing about for the past month or so. If you've already been taking advantage of subscription-based two-day shipping so that your impulse buys get to your door a little quicker you can now enjoy streaming of 5,000 pieces of "prime eligible" content, including some recent movies and a lot of TV shows, much of which will look awfully familiar if you're also a Netflix subscriber. However, on some foreign films (like The Girl who Kicked the Hornets' Nest above) you have the choice of subtitles or dubbed, and much of this content is still available to "rent" or "buy" if you want to be able to download it to a mobile device. We're just checking out the service now and will be back with some impressions a little later.

[Thanks, Chris]
