Mirror’s Edge is getting a TV adaptation

The original Mirror's Edge game was released in 2008 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and it went on to earn good reviews from critics and praise from fans. Now, eight years later, we're only a week away from developer EA releasing the sequel/reboot, Mirror's Edge Catalyst. However, we may be getting even more of Mirror's Edge, its future dystopian world, and freerunning parkour hero Faith in the future, except in the form of a TV show.

Apple TV gets SyFy Now, E! Now, and Bravo Now apps

NBCUniversal’s TV Everywhere service has expanded via a trio of new apps being made available on Apple TV. The company has released E! Now, SyFy Now, and Bravo Now apps for Apple's set-top-box, but they're not cord-cutting options -- you'll need to have an applicable pay TV subscription to gain access to the content. Those with such a subscription will get access to full episodes, current seasons and more.

HBO may put ‘True Detective’ on the chopping block

HBO may put ‘True Detective’ on the chopping block

The first season of True Detective was great, and it looked like the newest drama hit on HBO’s hands. That notion promptly disappeared with the second season, a notable flop that certainly didn’t follow in the first season’s footsteps. Now it’s looking pretty likely that HBO will cancel the series rather than try and alter the course. The change would follow then-head of programming Michael Lombardo’s departure.

New Game of Thrones episode leaked online (by HBO)

New Game of Thrones episode leaked online (by HBO)

An episode of Game of Thrones — already recognized as the world's most pirated show — getting leaked online early isn't exactly news anymore, especially after network HBO has taken great lengths to end such practices and only found partial success. However, in this case, where the latest episode of season six turned up online over 24 hours before its scheduled air date, it's the fact that it was HBO that leaked it in the first place that's interesting.

After ten years of cord-cutting, I’ve signed up for cable TV

After ten years of cord-cutting, I’ve signed up for cable TV

If you'll forgive the hipster-ish-ness of it all, I was a cord-cutter before cord-cutting was a thing. Not because I wanted to be, but rather due to a childhood in which we didn't have cable and, later on, the habit of living without it. I had an old Dell laptop connected to the TV and a ton of DVDs ripped to its hard drive. The arrangement became more sophisticated over time, it was joined by Netflix and Hulu subscriptions, and I'd say my satisfaction with the arrangement had been increasing every year. Why, then, did I subscribe to cable TV this month?
