Wet Hot American Summer: Netflix releases first long trailer

Wet Hot American Summer: Netflix releases first long trailer

Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer mini series will be arriving this month, and after teasing subscribers with short and long trailers that refrained from giving us a solid look at the show, it has finally released the first long trailer for the series. At more than two and a half minutes long it isn't disappointing, and we see many of the familiar faces we've since heard are among the cast. Many of them starred in the original and have reprised their roles.

Hulu and Pluto TV strike content-sharing deal

Hulu and Pluto TV strike content-sharing deal

Among Hulu's latest efforts is a new deal with Pluto TV that will see the service's free content made available in what is described as a "TV-like programming grid". This will be a re-packaging of Hulu’s free content, meaning the content it provides on an ad-supported basis rather than exclusively through its subscription model, and includes both movies and TV shows. Shows will be coming from Fox, ABC, and NBC among others. Furthermore, the shared content will only be viewable on Pluto TV's online site, not mobile devices.

Philips brings out its own Quantum Dot 4K TV

Philips brings out its own Quantum Dot 4K TV

With TV manufacturer's push for 4K resolutions or curved screens, you probably won't hear much marketing speak about Quantum Dot displays. And yet some strongly hold that this is the future as far as color accuracy is concerned. That is, if they get the green light from environmental agencies. For now, however, Quantum Dot displays, especially TVs, are a rarity despite their promise of better splashes of color. This makes Philips' new 55-inch 55PUF6850/T3 4K TV, with QD Vision's Color IQ Quantum Dot technology, one of a kind.

Fear the Walking Dead trailer teases “virus or microbe”

Fear the Walking Dead trailer teases “virus or microbe”

As we recently discovered, AMC's TWD companion series Fear the Walking Dead will be arriving some time in August, and as its premiere grows nearer we've been seeing more teases drop. Last was that 30 second clip of someone running really fast, but the latest one is a little less bland. We get a glimpse of the world before the event took place, or at least as it is beginning to take place, and see signs that the government was trying to keep the impending walker-pocalypse under wraps.

Netflix Card brings pay-as-you-go to streaming service in UK

Netflix, the source of all our binge TV-watching these days, has just announced the Netflix Card. No, it's not a streaming video-sponsored credit card, but a way to subscribe to the service through a pay-as-you-go plan. Netflix highlights that the card can be used to continue using the service after the free trial ends, or existing subscribers can switch to pre-paid from the existing billing method. While gift cards for the service have been available in the US for some time, this is the first appearance in the UK.

Amazon’s HDR video arrives for Prime subscribers

Amazon’s HDR video arrives for Prime subscribers

Back in April, we heard word that Amazon would be adding HDR video support to Prime Instant Video some time later on in the year, doing so with the promise of improved image quality. The new viewing options would be arriving on its own original shows, but the company had said that it was also working with other entities to bring HDR to other content, too. Fortunately, Amazon didn't make us wait too long for the feature to arrive. Today the company announced that Prime members can watch HDR versions of episodes from its own original shows.

Jeremy Clarkson: Top Gear hosts to reunite for new car show

It shouldn't really come as a surprise at this point, seeing as how it's been rumored for weeks already, but Jeremy Clarkson himself has confirmed that he and other former Top Gear co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May will be returning with a new car show. The UK's Sunday Times was told the news directly by Clarkson himself, however several other details still remain unknown. The trio, well known for their long stint as hosts of the BBC's Top Gear, left the show after Clarkson's dismissal earlier this year.

Netflix releases ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ full trailer

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. We get glimpses of many popular faces during the relatively short trailer, as well as the camp itself as the video is designed to be an faux advertisement for the summer camp. Check the trailer out after the jump!

Hannibal season 3 to be finale for hit NBC show

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.
