Hulu to offer Showtime shows under new partnership

Hulu, though still maligned for showing advertisements to paying subscribers, has done impressive work when it comes to expanding its library, and it has boasting rights as the current and future home of many well-known shows. Now the service has announced in conjunction with Showtime a new ‘first’ — the ability for Hulu subscribers to subscribe to and access Showtime’s own service. Under this partnership, those who sign up can access the Showtime content via the Hulu app, meaning the content will be available on an expansive lineup of devices. Says Hulu, the Showtime shows can be streamed "the moment they air".

Floating Record vertical turntable project funded in 3 hours

Floating Record vertical turntable project funded in 3 hours

The Floating Record vertical turntable launches to a surprisingly enthusiastic crowd-funding audience. With a $50k funding goal in place at its morning launch, this project reached a cool $85k by the time the afternoon rolled around. Instead of another digitally-enthusiastic piece of "high-res audio" nonsense, this piece of equipment works with audiophile-grade materials for vinyl records. And it plays these records on their side - because any person willing to take the time to pull a record out of its sleeve to play music can also appreciate the awesomeness of seeing said record play on its side.

Netflix releases ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ full trailer

Netflix's reboot of Wet Hot American Summer has received its first full trailer, a video styled to look like footage on an old VHS cassette that has been sitting in a box in the closet for a couple decades.

Check the trailer out after the jump!

Hannibal season 3 to be finale for hit NBC show

Bad news for die-hard fans of the NBC show Hannibal, as it was revealed today that the studio has not renewed it for another season, meaning the current third season will be its last. The drama, which acts as prequel to the original Hannibal Lecter movie Silence of the Lambs, has a dedicated fan base and was praised by critics, but unfortunately never found a broad audience, especially for being on one of the US's major networks.

Fear the Walking Dead arrives in August, new trailer drops

Fear the Walking Dead arrives in August, new trailer drops

AMC's upcoming Fear the Walking Dead series is launching later on this summer (if you're hoping for a release date, we're a little closer to knowing). We have another teaser trailer, as well, and it is a sign that maybe AMC should work on its trailer-making abilities. Not to spoil anything, but the trailer has a man running. And that's it. He has, presumably, seen his first walker, and considering that he's pulling his pants up while running we're guessing the walker made its appearance with unfortunate timing.

Marvel, Sony, Paramount to skip SDCC

Marvel, Sony, Paramount to skip SDCC

This morning it's become apparent that SDCC isn't the place to be for three of the world's biggest names in comic book-based entertainment. Marvel, Sony, and Paramount Pictures have all confirmed that they will not be making presentations at San Diego Comic Con 2015. While it's not unheard of that one of these three might not show, it's unprecedented that the entire trio won't be revealing news at the world's biggest comic event. Is this a sign that the convention is no longer the place to make massive announcements?

Over 12,000 Marvel comics come to Amazon’s Kindle store

Marvel and Amazon have just announced a new deal that sees over 12,000 of the comic book publisher's back issues available on the Kindle store, starting today. Marvel's comics were previously available through the Comixology app, which Amazon purchased last year, and they will continue to be offered there, but Kindle owners can now buy straight from their own marketplace. Even better is that new Marvel issues will be available for Kindle on the same day they're available at stores and on Comixology.

Tesla’s Hot Wheels Model S will cost you $1

Mattel's miniature toy car brand Hot Wheels has revealed the Tesla Model S. This is just one of several models shown off this week as brands like Chevrolet take to the showroom floor with a new set of vehicles just a couple of weeks before SDCC. While one doesn't necessarily have to do with the other, it's a perfect time to get in before the crushing blow of the nerd news comes down - and these models will be sold at the convention, too, so there's that.

Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ gets series order from Starz

Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ gets series order from Starz

Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods' will be arriving on your TV as a drama series thanks to a recent order from Starz. There have been rumbles and hopes in the past that an adaption would come about, but for different reasons they've all fallen through. HBO, for example, was set to produce a series based on American Gods a few years ago, but after a couple years they ended up passing it on. From there the production was nabbed by FremantleMedia, and it is that company that has received the order from Starz.
