Nintendo’s second smartphone game will star a ‘very familiar’ character

Nintendo’s second smartphone game will star a ‘very familiar’ character

By on February 3, 2016 at 11:59 AM.

When Nintendo unveiled its first smartphone app last year, gamers were disappointed, to say the least. Rather than port a 2D Mario game to iOS and Android or build a brand new experience around one of its famous characters, Nintendo opted to create a social messaging application called Miitomo.

It wasn’t what fans were expecting, but a new report hints that the next app will be more in line with what the Nintendo faithful would want from the company. More →

Netflix is already looking beyond 4K

Years after they made their debut, 4K televisions are finally affordable. It was only a matter of time, but the average viewer is only now beginning to upgrade to the latest standard in display technology. But despite all the hype that 4K resolution has received, Netflix is confident that another technology will be the real difference maker this generation. More →

FiOS TV subscribers can now preview premium channels for free anytime they want

Every pay TV provider offers free previews of premium channels from time to time. After all, they’re a great way to give subscribers a taste of the channel bundles they’re missing if they don’t already subscribe to packages like HBO, Showtime and Cinemax. But it seems like the free preview periods are almost always over by the time you realize they’re available. Great, so now you’ve seen three episodes in the middle of the last season of Game of Thrones… now what?

It turns out there’s a better way to preview premium channel bundles and Verizon just made it available to its FiOS TV subscribers. More →

New ‘Batman v Superman’ trailer highlights the superhero showdown of the year

Six comic book movies are scheduled to release in 2016, but none are the subject of quite as much consternation as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. No one is altogether confident about how the movie will turn out, but that hasn’t stopped Warner Bros. from pumping out a new trailer or TV spot every week or so.

Torrent streaming site declares war on ‘righteous content monopolies’ – and it might win

Torrent streaming site declares war on ‘righteous content monopolies’ – and it might win

To the dismay of content rights owners, which Popcorn Time calls “righteous content monopolies,” the popular streaming service isn’t quite ready to be wiped off the face of the Earth. The “Netflix for pirates” is here to stay and it’s about to offer pirates a major new feature: streaming movies and TV shows directly to any Internet browser. That means you won’t need a Popcorn Time client on your computer, smartphone or tablet, as you’ll be able to stream whatever you want right inside your preferred browser.

Netflix VPN Not Working Ban Fix

Netflix has no chance of winning the battle against VPN pirates

By on February 2, 2016 at 1:17 PM.

Netflix has no chance of winning the battle against VPN pirates

If you’re paying for Netflix in your local market but use a VPN service to access Netflix content from a different country, namely the U.S., you’re violating Netflix’s rules and you’re considered by many to be a pirate. You’re probably paying a monthly or annual fee for your VPN access, but even if you’re not downloading any illegal content using torrent services, and your only “crime” is accessing the Netflix content not available in your region, that still makes you a pirate.

Netflix finally put its foot down and took action against VPN offenders a few weeks ago, but the streaming company is fighting a battle that likely can’t be won. In fact, Netflix probably shouldn’t even want to win this war. More →

Dish’s game-changing set top box just got a huge upgrade, and it’s available now

Satellite television provider Dish Network on Monday announced the nationwide availability of its new Hopper 3 set top box, the latest iteration of a device that has made some serious waves in the industry. Dish’s Hopper burst onto the scene and caused an uproar among major networks due to its “auto hop” feature, which allowed users to record prime time television shows and then automatically skip over all TV commercials during playback.

Despite all of the outrage and even a high-profile lawsuit, auto hop remains a key feature of the Hopper line, and it was just joined by a number of additional new features in the Hopper 3. More →
