HBO warns torrent users over recent Game of Thrones leak

HBO warns torrent users over recent Game of Thrones leak

Following last week's news that the first four episodes of Game of Thrones season five were leaked onto torrent sites on the night before the season premiere, they were subsequently downloaded millions of times. Understandable, with HBO's drama being the most pirated show around the globe. Also unsurprising is that HBO is displeased with the leak. So displeased, in fact, that the company sent warnings to thousands of torrent users attempting to deter them from downloading the show any further.

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. Verizon's so-called "skinny bundle" is supposed to launch on the 19th of April - that's just a few days away. Before then, have a look at this.

FlatWave Amped Review; a cord-cutting must-have

FlatWave Amped Review; a cord-cutting must-have

When we discuss ‘cord cutting’, a lot of the talk revolves around which service streams what content, and to which devices. Netflix helps, and Sling TV is a breath of fresh air. HBO NOW is setting a new trend, too. What about local channels, though? That’s still ‘traditional’ TV — and that’s where the FlatWave Amped comes in. An ultra-thin antennae, FlatWave Amped may bridge the gap for cord cutters who already get cable content elsewhere. Does it live up to our expectations?

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

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

The last time we spoke about "affordable" 4K TVs, Vizio was the brand we were speaking about. That was back in September of 2014, and the word "affordable" was tossed around rather willy-nilly. At $999, a television isn't exactly the sort of equipment the average middle-class citizen is going to be picking up more than once every few years. Fast forward to April 2015 and Vizio's newest stab at the market is a 4K TV with a price just 60% of that which they presented a half a year ago.

Sling TV handled Game of Thrones well last night

Sling TV handled Game of Thrones well last night

After the issues that plagued the service during the Final Four, Sling TV customers (and those interested in Sling) were right to be wary. A large event and streaming didn’t mix so well, so the Game of Thrones premiere was bound to bring a lot of attention. After announcing HBO would hit Sling TV, we all wondered just how well the streaming service would fare with another massive streaming effort. As it turns out, not without issues, but overall — Sling TV did really well with the Game of Thrones season 5 debut.

‘Game of Thrones’ S5 episodes 1-4 leaked online

Daredevil leak reveals red suit ahead of tomorrow’s premiere

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. We've seen many trailers for the series, but they've shied away from revealing what his costume would look like -- something that recently surfaced in a leak. By all appearances it is a modern rendition of the classic uniform, drawing in a lot of classic cues for a satisfying final product. Even better, Netflix embraced the leak by showing us even more.
