T-Mobile wants to disrupt the cable TV industry next

T-Mobile has made a name for itself trying to "disrupt" the mobile industry over the past few years, and now it's looking to do the same to big cable.

Twitch and Alexa almost make the perfect game streaming pair

Twitch and Alexa almost make the perfect game streaming pair

Google may have dealt Amazon a big blow when it yanked YouTube from under the Echo Show’s feet but gamers don’t need to be too concerned. Amazon, after all, still owns the granddaddy of game and live streaming, Twitch.tv. Taking advantage of that inter-company relationship, Twitch has just announced new Alexa skills that would deliver an almost perfect hands-free game streaming experience. Well, almost. While it naturally works with any Alexa-enabled device, you’ll probably want to have an Echo Show anyway.

All three of these features will change the way that Live TV subscribers navigate Hulu's web interface, and perhaps the biggest changes are coming to the My Stuff page.

Amazon Music Unlimited and Echo roll out to 28 new countries

Though it provides a good service, Amazon Music Unlimited suffers a bit for having arrived a little late to the party. At this point, Music Unlimited is only about 14 months old, and in that period of time, it's only come to a select few regions, like the US, UK, Germany, and Japan. That all changes today, as Amazon has announced that Music Unlimited will launch in 28 new regions around the world, greatly expanding its availability on this wonderful little planet of ours.

Vine co-founder begins teasing a successor

Vine co-founder begins teasing a successor

Back in 2016, Vine fans were blindsided when Twitter announced its plan to shut the service down. Though it may not have been able to compete with other services like YouTube in terms of user numbers, it still built itself a rather large following of devoted users in the time since it launched. Though Twitter revived the name and used it in a new app called Vine Camera in January, it wasn't the return of Vine many were hoping for.

Amazon abandons plans for bundled TV streaming package

Amazon abandons plans for bundled TV streaming package

With services like YouTube and Hulu rolling out packages that bundle cable and broadcast networks together, the safe assumption is that other streaming providers will soon follow suit. Apparently, Amazon won't be one of them, as it has supposedly abandoned efforts to put together a similar streaming package. It looks like Amazon's video streaming line up will be limited to just Prime Video and Amazon Channels for at least a while longer.

TiVo BOLT VOX with voice remote control is now on Amazon

TiVo can perhaps be considered the granddaddy of modern-day DVRs and set-top boxes, but it has been shoved to the sidelines by numerous rivals, including those from big names in the tech industry. Not one to go down without a fight, the company was rumored to be working on not just a more modern box but also a remote control with voice support. Those are no longer rumors now that the TiVo BOLT VOX has appeared, disappeared, and now reappeared on Amazon, ahead of whatever announcement TiVo may have in store.
