In 1995, Amazon was in its infancy, there was no Netflix or Hulu to stream, DVDs were just being developed, and the most common ways to watch movies were in cinemas or through TV sets and VHS tapes. Movie theater attendance dropped, then began an upward trajectory culminating in 2002. Last year, admissions in the US and Canada fell to a low not seen since 1995, when they dipped to 1.21 billion.
There’s something about really great family movies that critics can all get behind. Paddington 2, the sequel to the 2015 movie about the fictional beloved British bear, has beaten out Toy Story 2 as the best-reviewed film of all time on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie, which premiered in the US last weekend, earned 165 positive reviews and counting without receiving a single negative review.
The big promise of streaming’s new live-TV packages was simple: you could get most of your favorite channels for less than the cost of cable. It’s what drove millions of Americans to consider cutting the cord, as they say, and trade their old cable-TV packages for shiny, new streaming alternatives like SlingTV and YouTube TV. Research suggests that, nearly three years after the first virtual pay-TV provider, SlingTV, arrived, these packages aren’t actually saving people money.
@CordCuttersNews@jd3_in_lv I personally had a lot of buffering issues before I upgraded, especially when simultaneously streaming in different rooms (multiple people) and doing other things on the internet at the same time.
@jd3_in_lv@CordCuttersNews good point! i’m a cord cutter too and find i’m spending about the same without a cable package after internet rates going up, etc. but i appreciate being able to cancel whenever i want (i should take advantage of that more) and not being tethered to a box.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
