Time Warner Vs. Cord Cutters Hulu

Time Warner’s quest to ruin Hulu shows the TV industry is pathetically shortsighted

Time Warner’s quest to ruin Hulu shows the TV industry is pathetically shortsighted

Remember back in the late 1990s when recording companies kept insisting that everyone had to buy an entire album just to get the one or two songs they actually wanted? That didn’t work out so well for them after Napster and other music sharing services made it impossible for them to force consumers to buy CDs. The TV industry is facing a similar situation right now and, like the music industry before it, it’s crawling into a shell and hoping technological progress just goes away. More →

Top Gear Joey Friends

BBC just announced the newest host of Top Gear

BBC just announced the newest host of Top Gear

Regardless of any other movies or TV shows he appears in, actor Matt LeBlanc will forever be Joey Tribbiani to us. And the fact that LeBlanc turned Joey into such a lovable and memorable character on Friends should be enough to make you watch anything else the actor might appear in – and he wasn’t bad in Episodes either, which got him a Golden Globe in 2011.

So with all that in mind, we can’t help but be thrilled to hear that LeBlanc has been confirmed as the newest co-host of the hit show Top Gear. 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 →

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 →

‘Game of Thrones’ star Gwendoline Christie confirms Captain Phasma role for ‘Star Wars VIII’

What does Game of Thrones and Star Wars have in common? If you thought Gwendoline Christie, then you’re right on the money. The actress plays Brienne of Tarth in the former, and Captain Phasma in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In an interview at the 2016 SAG Awards, Christie confirmed that she’s going to be back Star Wars: Episode VIII. That’s not a surprise, but this is the first time the actress mentioned it. More →
