NFC rings won’t let you cheat on shows without your partner

NFC rings won’t let you cheat on shows without your partner

In the past, commitment meant that you fell in love with someone, exchanged rings and vows, and lived happily ever after. These days, people apparently can't even commit to watching a TV show together without one party cheating on the other. Sure, it seems harmless. You'll just jump ahead and watch the next couple episodes of House of Cards, even though you promised never to do that. It's okay though, you can just act surprised when you re-watch it with them. Well, one company wants to prevent this from happening, by once again using rings as a means of commitment.

Hulu says it will offer live television in 2017

Hulu has confirmed a recent report claiming that it will soon offer live television streaming. In a statement today, Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins said the company will roll out “live programming” in 2017, giving viewers something other than the service’s on-demand content. As with PlayStation Vue and Sling TV, Hulu’s live programming will include commercial breaks and will not require a separate cable/satellite subscription.

Hulu’s now a channel on Cablevision’s set-top boxes

Hulu’s now a channel on Cablevision’s set-top boxes

If you're a Cablevision subscriber, you can fire up your set-top box and choose Hulu from amongst the channel offerings as if it, too, were an ordinary channel. This marks a big milestone for Hulu, and boils down to a convenience factor for Optimum TV subscribers — rather than needing a separate device, such as a Roku player, customers can fire up Hulu using the service provider’s own set-top box from within the channel guide.

Hulu VR app launches with a couple dozen 360-degree films

Hulu VR app launches with a couple dozen 360-degree films

Netflix's VR app puts you on the couch in a cozy cabin somewhere in a wintery paradise. Hulu's newly launched VR app goes the opposite direction, positioning viewers in the middle of a modern, somewhat minimalist high-rise condo above a big city. The Hulu VR app works on the Samsung Gear VR headset, and has been launched alongside some 360-degree content for more than just mask-on-face passive content consumption.

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

This hasn't been a great year for Doctor Who fans. It's the first time since the series was rebooted that will get no new episodes, save for the Christmas Special. It'll be sometime in 2017 before we see regular episodes return, and as a kicker, the show was pulled from both Netflix and Hulu. This means that it is currently not streaming anywhere that's accessible in the US. But that's about to change.

Hulu gets a universal Windows app and Cortana support

Hulu gets a universal Windows app and Cortana support

For many years, I've wondered when Microsoft would get around to having a unified platform. They've had a desktop OS, smartphones, gaming consoles, and even an MP3 player for ages now, but they were always very different devices that only barely communicated with each other. Only with the release of Windows 10 has Microsoft been able to create a truly unified platform. Today, Hulu has joined that platform by releasing their universal Windows 10 app.

T-Mobile offers free Hulu subscription to Verizon customers

Last month T-Mobile aimed its sights at Sprint, by offering customers who switch from Sprint a $200 credit for every line that they bring over. That's a pretty hefty amount, especially if you've got a family or even a business plan that you're switching. T-Mobile said that they had plans to entice customers on other carriers, and they're starting to deliver on that.
