Better Call Saul- Streaming Netflix Instant 2014

Better Call Saul

New to Netflix Instant Streaming in 2014

Maybe you’ve heard about Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spin-off that will star Bob Odenkirk as everyone’s favorite slime-ball lawyer, Saul Goodman. AMC recently announced that Better Call Saul‘s premiere will take place sometime in November.

More importantly for fans of Netflix streaming, Netflix has struck a deal with Sony Pictures Television that will allow them to start airing season one of Better Call Saul before the second season premieres on AMC. As a big portion of Breaking Bad‘s success came from binge-watchers streaming episodes on Netflix, giving these viewers the chance to view this season immediately after it ends as opposed to waiting (and eventually being a year behind cable viewers) is a nice tip of the hat. While audiences streaming on Netflix won’t be able to watch Better Call Saul right away, it’s still an encouraging development that makes us think other studios are getting used to the idea that Netflix Instant is here to stay.

The special attention AMC has given to Netflix with Better Call Saul proves just how influential this streaming service has become. One can look no further to the success of Netflix Instant original series like House of Cards & Orange is The New Black to see how a future without cable TV is a definite possibility. As viewers head towards the binge-watching mindset as opposed to waiting week-to-week for episodes to premiere, the importance of having a high-performance wireless router set-up will be very clear.

Improve Netflix Instant Streaming Experience With Powerful Router

Streaming HD video is a bandwidth intensive activity that puts major stress on a wireless home network. Our wireless routers are popular with heavy Netflix users because they are designed to handle high-volume jobs with ease. With a FlashRouter, you can extend your wireless range, tweak wireless sensitivity, control your bandwidth allocation, and add layers of advanced security. How do we achieve all this? By flashing our routers with DD-WRT & Tomato firmware, open-source replacement firmwares that boost a router’s functionality and feature-set.

Check out our recent best-sellers of 2013 list to find some of our most popular devices, such as the beloved Cisco Linksys E4200 DD-WRT, which handily took the top spot (with it’s Tomato companion earning a slot on the list as well). Other networking favorites include the towering Tomato behemoth known as the Asus RT-N66U Dark Knight Tomato Router, and our latest next generation Wireless-AC device, the Netgear R6300 DD-WRT Router.

It’s also worth mentioning that we’re affiliated with a number of VPN service providers who can not only make your online experience safer, but can also keep you in touch with your Netflix streaming account even when you’re in countries where Netflix isn’t available. By tunneling your online information through secure servers all over the world, VPNs also allow you to trick your computer into thinking it’s wherever you want it to be, allowing you access to geographically restricted material. For more information, check out one of our many articles about accessing Netflix from places like Korea or Dubai or South Africa.

If you’d like some help choosing the VPN that best suits you, we recommend checking our Supported Provider List. We can customize our routers for any of the VPNs on that list, which saves you a lot of the time and trouble that comes with installing the VPN software on your own. Don’t end up with a bricked router when we can handle all of the tough stuff for you.

Best New Netflix Instant Streaming Videos 2014

Some Like It Hot- Classic Films on Netflix Instant Streaming

Some Like It Hot: New Netflix Instant Streaming Movies

Classic Films Added to Netflix Instant Streaming in 2014

Late ’50s/Early ’60s classics – West Side Story/Some Like It Hot/Breakfast at Tiffany’s –  There was some minor hysteria about the amount of movies Netflix Instant lost during the switchover from 2013 to 2014, but surely the addition of these beloved classics from 1959 to 1961 softens the blow. Revel in the magic of this era of the cinema, when brilliant screenwriting and endless, almost effortless wit seemed to cascade out of the screen (we’re obviously not including Mickey Rooney’s horrifying Asian caricature when we wax nauseatingly nostalgic over his era).

Mel Brooks’ Spoofs – High Anxiety/Spaceballs – If we had our choice of Mel Brooks’ movies to add to Netflix Instant, we’d almost certainly go with Young Frankenstein or Blazing Saddles, but these are fine choices as well. High Anxiety‘s pitch-perfect take on the gradually increasing hysteria of Hitchcock movies and Spaceballs‘ unabashed silliness find the legendary writer/director/actor in fine, freewheeling Mel Brooks form.

Raging Bull: New Netflix Instant Streaming Video

Raging Bull Added to Netflix Streaming

Raging Bull – What more is there to say about this one? Raging Bull is a renowned American classic, tracking former boxer Jake La Motta’s rise and downfall with all of the grit and intensity that is Martin Scorcese’s stock-in-trade. Hopefully, you’ve all seen it by now, and if you have, it’s worth watching again. If not, what are you waiting for?

New Netflix Instant Streaming Videos in 2014

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters/Jack Reacher – We’re not exactly recommending Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters or Jack Reacher when we highlight them here. Let’s be honest though, these are the sorts of movies you mindlessly watch when they’re free, and if you’ve cut the cord on your cable bill, this level of movie fits perfectly into the “TNT/TBS/FX on a Saturday” mold.  And Werner Herzog is in Jack Reacher! That alone makes it worth a stream.

The Attack – Now that we’ve got the brain-dead stuff out of the way, it’s time to get to the “eat-your-veggies” material. Yes, a movie about an Arab surgeon who learns that his wife is responsible for a recent suicide bombing in Israel is not a light-hearted frolic at the ol’ cinema, but it’s a powerful work that’s well worth your time, if you can work up the nerve to watch it.

The Hunt – If you’re one of the many people who couldn’t stop watching Hannibal on NBC last year, perhaps you’d be interested to see its titular star, Mads Mikkelsen, in a decidedly less villainous role. The Hunt tells the heartbreaking story of a teacher (Mikkelsen) whose world crumbles around him after he’s falsely accused of pedophilia. Not really a light-hearted alternative to Hannibal, but a good showcase for Mikkelsen’s considerable range.

Maron – We were, and remain, big fans of Thinky Pain, Marc Maron’s comedy hour that premiered on Netflix Instant last year, and we’re longtime devotees to his beloved, groundbreaking WTF podcast, so it only makes sense that we’re recommending his new IFC sitcom. Those familiar with Maron’s hilariously neurotic, bitter, and twisted point of view will find plenty to love here.
