HBO announces Westworld, its new sci-fi western drama

While Sunday night saw the season two finale of the crime drama True Detective, HBO also used the time slot to announce Westworld, a new show set to debut in 2016. There was a 30-second teaser shown as well, giving off the impression the show will be a western, however there are also heavy sci-fi elements as well. Westworld will feature hour-long episodes, and is based on the 1973 movie of the same name by Michael Crichton.

Fear the Walking Dead: new trailer has LA burning down

AMC's all about the teasers, though it did finally give us a proper trailer not too long ago. So far the teasers have only hinted at the upcoming event, and the trailer itself shows it all getting started. The newest trailer, though, backs up from the characters and the crowds to show us (this series') ground zero from up above. We get a look at it all, a snapshot of the sum total of the chaos and damage that happens when a city as big as Los Angeles is overrun with infected living-dead walkers.

True Detective season 2’s finale boosted to 90 minutes

In what what seems to be a quickly growing trend among television shows, the True Detective season 2 finale has been extended to 90 minutes in length, making it as long as some theatrical movies. This will give the network extra time to flesh out the finale and wrap things up both neatly and in a satisfactory manner -- not to mention it gives fans a little extra fix upon the season's end. The upcoming finale episode will be airing on August 9. Teaser after the jump!

Netflix changes ‘Fuller House’ plot to make it less depressing

Netflix changes ‘Fuller House’ plot to make it less depressing

Netflix, in what may be one of its more misguided reboots, has decided to bring back the 90s family-friendly television show Full House as a continuation of the original series. As we'd previously heard, it will feature some of the original cast, with the then-kids now being the show's adults going through life's mild follies and saccharine sweet learning moments. If you paid attention to the original announcement, you probably noticed something important: the storyline sounded really depressing. It seems Netflix noticed too, and it has done something about it.

Comcast frowns at Sling TV, rejects anti-cable ads

Comcast frowns at Sling TV, rejects anti-cable ads

Sling TV was arguably the brightest light in cable-cutters' eyes, at least when it launched earlier this year. The service is an Internet-only online live TV streaming service from Dish Network, and it -- despite some hiccups -- has largely enjoyed success. The service works by breaking content up into packages: there's one core package that costs $20/month, and additional packages priced at $5/month (with a couple exceptions) that aggregates similar channels. The service is everything cable isn't, and now its provoking has earned a reaction.

Game of Thrones S5 downloads arrive early on August 31

Game of Thrones S5 downloads arrive early on August 31

Game of Thrones stands chief among all shows, at least when you look at how many people are pirating it. That piracy was aided by early leaks of season 5 episodes, and all in all HBO is scrambling to squeeze some pocket change from those Internet rebels. As such, it isn’t surprising HBO has decided to launch the digital downloads for season 5 before it releases the Blu-ray and DVD versions (though the network probably won’t cry if you pre-order them anyway). Downloads start next month.

ESPN’s (possible) future: direct subscriptions, no cable required

ESPN’s (possible) future: direct subscriptions, no cable required

The television industry is in a state of limbo -- viewers are moving en masse to so-called cord cutting options like Netflix, Sling TV, and on-demand streaming services. Networks have been slow to accept these services, however, having a careful juggling act to maintain in regards to things like advertisers and DVD sales. Report after report has shown that consumers are moving on regardless of industry resistance, and this year has been particularly kind with the advent of things like Sling TV and Showtime's new streaming option. The future looks even brighter.
