Google Play Movies & TV now supports Apple TV, cellular streaming

Google Play Movies & TV now supports Apple TV, cellular streaming

Just because it isn't its native platform doesn't mean Google is giving iOS users the short end of the figurative stick when it comes to accessing content. Unlike some other retailer who seemingly wants to kick out rival devices from its shelves. Google has just pushed an update to its Google Play Movies & TV app for iOS, not Android, that adds some interesting and useful, not to mention timely, features, like direct support for Apple TV as well as streaming over cellular data connections.

And the insights that app metrics site appFigures share are quite interesting as the Apple TV seems to break every set expectation as far as app statistics go.

Netflix’s star-studded Christmas original is a giant flop

Netflix, an ever-growing thorn in the television industry's side, has long basked in praise for its award-winning original shows. When the company announced plans to produce its own feature length movies, striking deals and bringing in some of Hollywood's best known stars, the movie industry shuddered. Theaters vowed boycotts.

Apple’s Live TV service might not be “Coming Soon” after all

Apple’s Live TV service might not be “Coming Soon” after all

It seems it was wise after all for Apple not to wait for the launch of its Internet-based TV subscription service before launching its new Apple TV set-top box. Because now it seems that plans for that service are being put on hold indefinitely. Although the rumor mill never really gave a target date, it was commonly believed that Apple was close to finalizing deals that would fill its service with channels and content. As it turns out, Apple was nowhere near closing after all.

You’re going to Mars, I went to NASA

You’re going to Mars, I went to NASA

I woke up at 5:30 AM after a string of nightmares about being left alone on a dusty red planet. Like a fool I'd eaten a gigantic piece of chocolate cake the night before while watching a set of tiny teaser clips of "The Martian" to mentally prepare for the next day, which was then, now, today. "It's OK," I told myself. "Stay calm. You're in Houston. You're on East NASA Parkway in the same hotel you'd checked in to the day before. Today you're going to go on a brief ride in a Mars rover and talk to an astronaut."
