Do You Qualify For The Free Mobile Plan Being Offered By Netflix?

Netflix continues to set the bar for streaming platforms worldwide. According to reports from TechCrunch, the leading streaming service will launch a free mobile plan in Kenya in an effort to further tap into the market. “If you’ve never watched Netflix before – and many people in Kenya haven’t – this is a great way to experience our service,” said Cathy Conk, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix in a blog post. “And if you like what you see, it’s easy to upgrade to one of our paid plans so you can enjoy our full catalog on your TV or laptop as well.” Available in more than 190 countries, Netflix is not shy when it comes to experimenting with various plans for its users.

Tyga, Reportedly One Of OnlyFans' Top Earners, Deletes Account To Launch Its New Competitor

Just when we thought the days of OnlyFans was over, rapper Tyga has come up with a solution to still get content creators paid on a new platform. Following the news of OnlyFans’ rebrand to ban adult entertainment content on its platform, the former Young Money artist has announced the launch of an alternative called Myystar — which will support content creators who wish to create whatever kind of content they’d like, explicit or not, without pushback. According to the rapper’s latest Instagram post, he has since deleted his OnlyFans account to get behind his own movement. “Just deleted my Onlyfans, starting my own platform @myystar8 more futuristic , better quality & only 10% fee,” he wrote. “Creators will also be able to make content of their choice!” Tyga then encouraged users to apply to get invites to the platform.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by T-Raww (@tyga)

OnlyFans Adds New App With The Same Creators Minus The Nudity

OnlyFans is no longer just only for adult content. The streaming service wants a new reputation that pushes a different agenda for its creators — starting with its app. According to several reports, OnlyFans — which has only previously been accessible through its website — created a brand-new app earlier this year that offers videos with some of its biggest creators. What comes as a surprise from the notoriously explicit platform is that its new app shows no nudity. That’s right, OnlyFans is getting wholesome to add its services to Apple and Google app stores. The ad-free app is called “OFTV” and it officially launched back in January, but this week OnlyFans says that it’s marketing the app to attract those who aren’t already subscribed to the streaming service. It reportedly offers a library of over 800 videos that includes original content from chefs, yoga instructors, podcasters and more. It even features an original series called “Unlocked” that shares conversations with...
