Can a cheaper Apple TV hold off Google’s Chromecast?

Apple might be losing its grip on this living room. That’s not to say it ever had a stranglehold over our television sets, but when the Apple TV launched, there wasn’t much else like it. Now every vendor on the planet is selling a set-top box or a dongle with the same functionality, often at a cheaper price point.

So will the $30 discount on the Apple TV announced this Monday be enough to keep Apple in the conversation? More →

Dish’s awesome $20 cord cutter package just got even better

Dish’s Sling TV package for cord cutters was already very tempting and now the company has just sweetened the pot once again. Per Engadget, Sling TV this week has added both AMC and IFC to its service that lets you stream several different cable channels online for $20 a month. The bad news is that right now the service is only letting you stream shows on these channels as they air but it promises that on-demand streaming will be coming soon. Together, the two channels offer critical favorites such as Mad Men, Better Call Saul and Portlandia, so their additions really do make the Sling TV package more compelling. More →

Breaking Bad Interview

This is the interview with Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring that you’ve been waiting for

This is the interview with Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring that you’ve been waiting for

By on February 23, 2015 at 9:55 AM.

In the annals of television history, you’d be hard pressed to find a more iconic and arguably beloved “bad guy” than Gustavo Fring from Breaking Bad. Played brilliantly by the talented Giancarlo Esposito, Fring was a ruthless drug kingpin whose understated demeanor only served to make him all the more menacing.

This past Sunday, I was lucky enough to witness Esposito and RJ Mitte (who played the role of Walt Jr.) interviewed during a 45-minute panel discussion about everyone’s favorite meth-based drama. The panel took place during Walker Stalker Con, convention primarily geared for fans of The Walking Dead. More →

Why cut the cord? Cable stations just gave you another big reason
