Google ADT-3 device revealed with Android 10 for Android TV

Today Google revealed Android 10 on Android TV, a system that'll bring Android TV up to speed with the rest of the Android universe. This update will bring Android API level 29, which in turn will bring on what Google described as "recent performance and security updates made with Android 10."

Salt Apple TV remote is the complete opposite of the Siri Remote

Salt Apple TV remote is the complete opposite of the Siri Remote

Some tech companies, particularly smartphone makers, have dipped their hands into the TV market by bringing their smart technologies to the big screen. Unlike traditional players in that industry, however, the likes of Apple, Google, and even NVIDIA have stripped remote controls bare, leaving only what they deem to be the essentials. That hasn't always been favorably received and Swiss network operator Salt has taken matters into its own hands, pun unintended, by launching a slightly more conventional remote for the Apple TV 4K that almost goes against everything Apple's own Siri Remote stands for.

New ‘latest’ Hulu ‘won’t work on this device’ list drop

In late 2019, Hulu decided to split their app into two versions. They called these versions "Classic Hulu app" and "the latest Hulu app" in support documentation. Every device Hulu supports for the "latest" Hulu app will have access for years to come, more than likely. This includes Apple TV (4th gen and later), Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 (not including live programming), Nintendo Switch, Windows 10 devices, Echo Show, Chromecast, and a variety of others. What we're interested in here is the latest guidance from Hulu on devices on which "New" Hulu will and will not work.

Nokia Smart TV made by Flipkart joins OnePlus TV as an India-exclusive

You don't often hear about Android TV these days, except when news of new devices come up. Usually, the big manufacturers simply list it as a yet another bullet point in their feature lists. For companies still new to the smart TV market, however, that could very well be one of the most important aspects of the product. Last September, OnePlus dipped its toes in that market by launching the Android TV-based OnePlus TV in India. Now it is being joined by the Nokia Smart TV which, just like Nokia phones, isn't made by Nokia at all.

Episodes of Rick and Morty, Friends, Big Bang Theory licensing through 2028

If you're looking for episodes of Rick and Morty in the near future, you won't be amongst the unlucky masses with just one option. If you're looking for a show like The Office, for example, you've likely been watching on Netflix for the past few years - but soon you'll have to head elsewhere. The same is true of many Disney TV shows and movies, including Marvel Comics movies and Star Wars movies - all of which are now on Disney+. But Cartoon Network, the folks who run the license show when it comes to Rick and Morty, do not seem to be taking the bait when it comes to the whole "exclusive" deal other networks are attempting to score.
