I’m a few episodes away from finishing the third season of House of Cards, which I haven’t been able to binge-watch like the previous seasons, but I already am one of the many fans who want to see the series live on. Luckily for Frank Underwood’s supporters, Netflix confirmed a fourth season of the show will be released next year, and it will of course star the same Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright duo, Deadline reports.

Netflix orders new comedy series that longtime HBO fans will love

Comedy nerds have long had a special place in their hearts for under-appreciated TV shows that never quite transitioned into the mainstream, despite being much funnier and smarter than traditional TV offerings. MTV’s The State and Fox’s Arrested Development are two such examples. Also included in the discussion is Mr. Show, a beloved HBO sketch comedy show from Bob Odenkirk and David Cross that originally aired in the late 90s.

How Apple plans to bankroll its rumored game-changing TV streaming service

How Apple plans to bankroll its rumored game-changing TV streaming service

Amid reports that Apple is planning to roll out a $30-$40 TV streaming service this fall, Re/Code reports that Apple is hoping that TV networks will handle the infrastructure costs involved in rolling out such an endeavor.

What this means, in a nutshell, is that Apple doesn’t want to actually serve the streams from its own servers, but rather provide the hardware and software that TV networks can tap into. While this may seem, at first glance, like Apple is trying to protect its pocketbook, it’s worth noting that many of the content providers Apple is reportedly talking to already manage their own streaming infrastructure.

Watch: The hilarious ‘honest’ Interstellar trailer

Popular YouTube channel Screen Junkies made a new “Honest Trailer” video, this time targeting Christopher Nolan’s epic Interstellar. The movie was one of 2014’s most anticipated sci-fi titles, but that doesn’t mean everyone who’s seen it is a fan. There are plenty of reasons to question Nolan’s script, and Screen Junkies does just that in the following clip. However, you shouldn’t watch if you haven’t seen Interstellar just yet, as the “honest” trailer is filled with spoilers that will give many things away. More →
