Apple TV may follow Sling TV into streaming of live content

Apple TV may follow Sling TV into streaming of live content

Apple TV is a very decent streaming device, and keeps pace with others in its category nicely. The main attraction for iOS users is the ability to AirDrop their screen, making things like mobile gaming come alive on the big screen. Still, media consumption is the main aim for many users, and Apple TV does a nice job of that. A new report suggests Apple may be trying to do what Dish recently accomplished with Sling TV, and offer actual TV packages.

GoPro channel for Roku coming this Spring

That Roku attached to your TV might be a lot more exciting very soon. GoPro, who have their cameras attached to people not watching a lot of TV, are creating a Roku channel. This “custom designed” channel is billed as a “one-stop video destination that delivers on-demand GoPro content to millions of Roku customers.” The channel will have the normal complement of high-wire antics and free-falling stunts, but also give people watching an idea of how it was done.

Sony’s impressive earnings still sour for mobile division

Sony’s impressive earnings still sour for mobile division

Sony’s latest earnings report wasn’t bad news, as you might have expected. In fact, it was their best earnings announcement in quite some time, even with the crippling hack, which cost them $15 million. Across the board, Sony was up, and shipped more Xperia smartphones than they ever have, and moved a lot of PlayStation 4s. Sony also experienced growth in sales of sensors. Still, Sony is primed to lay off several thousand by the end the financial year, which closes in March.

‘The Walking Dead’ mid-season premiere: watch the first 2 minutes

‘The Walking Dead’ mid-season premiere: watch the first 2 minutes

The Walking Dead's return is only a handful of days away, and to keep us anxious for the debut have been a series of painfully sparse teaser trailers. Now that we've scored glimpses and peeks at what the rest of the season will hold, AMC has decided to ramp up its cruel teases by releasing some footage: exactly two minutes from the start of the return's first episode. There's nothing about the footage that can be considered spoiler-worthy (unless you haven't caught up with all the available episodes yet).

Pronto review: Great for cable TV, but falls short elsewhere

Pronto review: Great for cable TV, but falls short elsewhere

As portable a device as I’ve seen come across my desk in some time, Pronto intends to make a home on my mantle, next to my TV. Or maybe 30 feet away! This little rectangular box of plastic wants to control all my living room (or bedroom) devices via Bluetooth, and allow me to control it via an app on my iPhone. Part universal remote, part new-look TV interface on the phone, Pronto definitely sounds the part, but does it stack up? Let’s find out.

Super Bowl Ads only: Dish Reverse AutoHop to the rescue

Super Bowl Ads only: Dish Reverse AutoHop to the rescue

Oh thank goodness the Dish team have come to their senses, turning their advertising-skipping feature "AutoHop" on its head for the Super Bowl. Instead of skipping the advertisements, Dish suggests you may want to skip the football. With Reverse AutoHop, the Hopper DVR device will allow you to watch the entire Super Bowl without all those tiresome, boring minutes of sports. Now you can just watch Kim Kardashian's T-Mobile USA ad instead - or the one with the rabbits. Or the one with the guy - the ad about the stuff!

Sling TV Review: Taking TV back

Sling TV Review: Taking TV back

As I write this review, SportsCenter is on in the background. I’ve not watched ESPN in years — actual years — so this review is like revisiting a memory. I’m a bit of a cord cutter (I still get Internet via the cable company), and there are several reasons for that. Sling TV brings cable back into my life, but in the best way possible. I don’t have to re-up some cable contract, and it works with streaming devices I have on every TV. It’s must-have TV. Here’s why.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt trailer drops ahead of Netflix debut

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt trailer drops ahead of Netflix debut

In November 2014, it was revealed that NBC's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt would be arriving on Netflix instead of the network, the reasons for which revolving around NBC's drama-heavy mid-season schedule and the belief that the show would do best on the video streaming service. While we've known for a while now what the show would be about, we haven't yet been given actual look at the series -- until today. The Netflix-branded series trailer has officially dropped, and is likely the first of several that'll arrive before the series debuts.
