I’m not sure I love anything as much as Rob Liefeld loves pop culture. The famous comic artist is extremely passionate not just about comics, but also about movies, TV, toys, pretty much everything. It all comes exploding out in this wonderful video.
Comcast and Netflix are like David and Goliath, Ali and Frazier, Pepsi and Coke. They’re both great in their own right, but they have to compete against each other in order to reach their greatest potential. Now, after more than five years of legal punch-ups and backhanded business deals, Netflix and Comcast are…
Charging cables aren’t exactly the sexiest pieces of technology, but they’re essential to every setup. Normally, I wouldn’t think twice about the charging cable I’m using, but when it comes to USB-C cables, the options are pretty bad right now. So, when I saw the Griffin BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable, I…
When Charter Communications completed its acquisition of Time Warner Cable a few weeks ago, it wasn’t exactly the birth of a shining new star. TWC has a longstanding reputation for being godawful! Luckily, the New York Attorney General’s Office knows what’s up and just called out the company’s awfulness.
America’s long national cable company horror show is far from over. In fact, it just got a lot worse because the Federal Communications Commission has officially approved the Charter-Time Warner Cable merger.
Hulu is said to be working on a live-streaming service that it would use to provide broadcast and cable TV channels like ESPN and the Fox network.
In a completely frustrating, but not all that surprising, piece of news, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is recommending that the commission approve Charter Communications’ plan to buy Time Warner. This could make things so much worse.
Deadpool wasn’t always a comics (and movie, and video game) superstar. The Merc with a Mouth started out much smaller, as a supporting character in one of the many X-Men comic books. We talked to the people who created and shaped him, to find out how Deadpool conquered the universe.
We’ve all wondered why we have to pay a confusingly large fee to rent a remarkably shitty cable box. There’s no other choice! But if the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gets its way, the days of being forced to fork over fees for set-top boxes will soon be over.
Less than two weeks ago, New York approved the merger between customer service nightmare Time Warner Cable and not-quite-so-famously-bad Charter Communications. Almost immediately, Time Warner is raising its prices in New York. Updated: The numbers previously used in this post were incorrect and have been changed.
How much does Cable creator Robert Liefeld want Jon Hamm to play the time-traveling, gun-toting pouch enthusiast? So much so that when Hamm won his Golden Globe last night, Liefeld tweeted this photoshop of Hamm as the prodigal son of Jean Grey and Cyclops:
Are we, the American people, gluttons for punishment? Tonight is the fifth Republican debate and, thankfully, the final debate of 2015.
Time Warner Cable has announced that it’s going to perform a trial run in which it will allow customers in New York City and New Jersey to use a Roku instead of its usual cable box.
I turn 30 this month, and it feels like I am one of the few people my age who watches cable TV and is willing to pay for it. Truth is, I hate watching shows on my computer—or worse, my phone. Give me new episodes in real-time, on a real TV. I know I’m on the wrong side of history, but I also know I’m not the only one.
As far as watching TV goes, the experience provided by a traditional cable provider is shit. Slow hardware, clunky interfaces, unwanted bundled channels. Streaming services are slowly replacing all of this and thanks goodness for them. But there’s an aspect of the old way that I will sorely miss—the DVR and its…
Deadpool and Cable are scions of the ‘90s comic aesthetic—ridiculously muscular action heroes covered head to toe in enough pouches to carry the firepower of a small country. So when they team up, it should be Pouch City, Population: 2. Sadly, this is not the case in our first look at Deadpool & Cable: Split Second.
The FCC has approved AT&T’s $48.5 billion purchase of DirecTV. That means the second-biggest cell carrier is officially merging with the biggest satellite TV provider.
The rumors were true: Two of the most hated companies in America have teamed up to stream games to your cable box. If you pay for Comcast’s fancy X1 service, you could soon be playing titles like Plants vs. Zombies, Real Racing 2 and NBA Jam on your TV without so much as a disc or a download.
The era of à la carte TV may finally be here—ready or not. Today, you can officially stream Showtime over the internet, without a cable subscription, for $11 a month. You can get it through Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, iPod, on a Roku, via Hulu, or through Sony’s PlayStation Vue—another cord-cutting service.
