Cord-cutting has always been the promise of streaming video, and we’re finally getting to the point where streaming the boobtube is better than paying for a cable subscription. Indeed, according to a recent report, 61 percent of young adults use streaming as their primary method of watching TV. But with the…
There are a bunch streaming boxes available for cord cutters, but the new AirTV box from Dish has a very cool twist: integration with local, over-the-air (OTA) antenna channels. It also streams in 4K.
Watching Turner & Hooch and crying, because I’d completely forgotten the dog dies, I came to a conclusion. Not about the film I’d been streaming on my laptop for the last two hours—but about the service I’d been streaming it from. AT&T’s DirecTV Now is currently an adequate streaming service, but it is not the best,…
With its new DirecTV Now streaming service, AT&T is coming after cheapskate cordcutters in a real way. The service launches tomorrow, and for an introductory period, it will offer more than 100 streaming channels for $35 a month. But is it a good deal? We’ve compared the lowest cost DirecTV Now option against…
Last night, in a fit of rage, I made my way to the Time Warner Cable website and added cable TV to my internet service. For the service and a cable card it will cost me an additional $52 a month. With my own DVR I will be recording three shows at a time with minimal fuss.
Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY! That’s when Game of Thrones comes back, and you need somewhere to watch it. But wait! What if you don’t have cable or an HBO package? Luckily, you don’t need it anymore—these days, you can legally stream HBO over the internet and onto virtually any device out there. Here’s how.
Game of Thrones is back in just a few days—and without an Apple device or a cable subscription, you don’t have a place to watch it. Don’t panic. There’s a solution: Sling TV has HBO, too.
Thought Apple’s standalone HBO Now service was your only way to watch Game of Thrones sans cable? No more—HBO will be available on the Sling TV service by April 12th. It’ll set you back the same $15 a month, but you’ll need Sling TV’s core $20 TV package to qualify. It’s better than nothing! [Sling TV]
Television is experiencing a digital renaissance. Cutting the cord no longer means severing you from live TV. We're witnessing the birth of true internet television, and Sony's PlayStation Vue is the service with the most to offer as of today.
Sling TV is the over-the-top TV service we've been waiting for (or at least, it will be once it gets AMC), and right now they're giving away popular streaming devices just for signing up.
I've never paid for live television, and Sling TV wasn't changing my mind. The $20-a-month app that streams live TV on the internet just didn't have anything that interested me. But then, a bombshell: AMC is coming to Sling TV too. The Walking Dead. Mad Men. Better Call Saul. I could watch them when my friends do.
At some point, TV became complicated. It used to be this thing I would plop down in front of after school and mindlessly flip through. Then, in 2009, everything changed: analog signals were outlawed, and the new digital TV signals failed me in every way: my old television wasn't compatible, my house was too far from…
After nearly two years, Slingbox has just announced its newest boxes, and a brand new look. Welcome to SlingTV.
