Verizon’s FIOS “Skinny Bundle” vs the competition (basically)

So Verizon is launching a new TV service that allows you to pick just a few channels instead of several hundred. So what? How does that compare to the rest of the TV services on the market today? What we're doing here is taking a run down the networks that offer similar services - the few that do - to show you what the real skinny is.

Vizio takes 4K TV down to $600, aiming for middle-class USA

Vizio takes 4K TV down to $600, aiming for middle-class USA

Daredevil leak reveals red suit ahead of tomorrow’s premiere

Marvel's much-touted Daredevil series will be hitting Netflix tomorrow after ample teases and a lot of waiting.
