This time is different: Why Apple TV is finally poised to make a major impact on TV

This time is different: Why Apple TV is finally poised to make a major impact on TV

Unlike the iPhone’s impact on the phone market, the Apple TV set-top box really hasn’t made much of an impact on the American TV market. A lot of this has had to do with the fact that it’s just not that great of an offering, especially considering what Apple was until recently charging for it before it cut its price. However, now that Apple has finally stopped trying to work with big cable companies and is striking deals directly with content providers, it has the chance to make Apple TV really compelling for the first time in its history.

How Netflix creates addicting and binge-worthy TV

How Netflix creates addicting and binge-worthy TV

Netflix arguably ushered in the phrase “binge watching”, a term which refers to when one plops down and watches a few episodes of a TV show in quick succession. And given the unprecedented level of TV quality these days, it’s not unheard of for fans to binge watch entire seasons of certain shows over the course of one weekend.

Netflix in recent years has successfully differentiated itself from other streaming services by developing its own programming. From House of Cards to Orange is the New Black, Netflix has seemingly perfected the art of not only producing incredible TV shows, but producing shows that are exceptionally binge worthy.

Cable TV Decline

The fall of cable is coming

The fall of cable is coming

Cable is amazing. For as much as people justifiably rag on cable providers, the actual content and breadth of channels is absolutely mesmerizing. When you toss DVR and on-demand functionality into the mix, there’s really never been a better time to be a TV and movie fan.

But cable is expensive, and cable providers, like most successful incumbents in any given industry, have failed to keep up with the times. Cable providers, by remaining dead set on preserving current revenue streams, simply haven’t adjusted to a marketplace where paying well over $100 a month for cable is increasingly falling out of favor with consumers, especially when a monthly Netflix subscription can get the job done for less than $10.

Mr. T’s home improvement show is going to be the best thing in the history of the universe

It may seem weird now, but way back in the 1980s, the world of popular culture was briefly obsessed by a muscle-bound dude with a Mohawk named Mr. T, who first broke onto the scene with his big role in Rocky III before becoming a household name as a cast member of the hit TV series The A-Team. Like a lot of American celebrities, however, Mr. T quickly wore out his welcome by becoming completely ubiquitous and appearing in everything. More →

Comcast could get dragged kicking and screaming into joining Apple’s TV service

Comcast could get dragged kicking and screaming into joining Apple’s TV service

Despite initial reports that content from NBCUniversal (which is owned by Comcast) won’t be a part Apple’s rumored TV streaming service, contract terms Comcast agreed to when it acquired NBCUniversal back in 2011 may force the media giant’s hand.

To pass regulatory scrutiny, Comcast a few years ago agreed that it would make NBCUniversal content available to online video distributors at rates that were comparable to the rates it charges cable providers to carry that same content.
