Netflix blames us for its subscriber woes (The 3:59, Ep. 80)

And by us, we mean the press. We also talk about Pokemon Go (again) and the racist Twitter attack on "Ghostbusters" star Leslie Jones.

The price of the Netflix's most popular plan is going up by $1, and folks don't like it.

The video streaming service posted its worst subscriber growth in three years, but took the unusual move of blaming media coverage of the price hike for its disappointing performance. The company warned that things wouldn't pick up next quarter either.

We also talk about Pokemon Go, which fueled Nintendo's market value past rival Sony. The Japanese video game company has seen its value double since the game launched earlier this year month and is reportedly poised to launch in Japan.

Lastly, we chat about Leslie Jones, one of the stars of the latest "Ghostbusters" film, and the offensive comments that have flooded her Twitter account.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng, Senior Writer Ben Fox Rubin and Producer Bryan VanGelder.
