    Netflix and Hulu Could Come to the Nintendo Switch

    From the beginning, Nintendo has made it clear that the Switch was intended neither as a tablet nor as a direct competitor to the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One. That makes sense — Nintendo is still a games company, and they’ve long been more concerned with making fun games than with having the most power […]

    YouTube is becoming ThemTube. The video hosting site that first got big featuring random videos from random people is now getting into pay TV thanks to the cord-cutting trend.

    CBS All Access – Is It Worth It?

    Back when I cut the cord, there wasn’t a lot going on in the live streaming market. There was Sling TV and old standbys like Netflix and Hulu, but that was pretty much it. Now you have plenty of choices with more on the horizon. If Sling TV, DirecTV NOW, or PlayStation Vue aren’t to your […]

    Bill Nye, an essential presence in virtually every ’90s K-12 science classroom, is finally coming back to TV — well, sort of. He’s been a pretty steady presence on Facebook for the past few years, so it only makes sense that he’ll be sticking to the internet — his new show, Bill Nye Saves the World, will call […]

    Facebook Reportedly Working on a TV App to Compete with Netflix

    Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and Hulu might have some new competition soon. Facebook’s push into video has mostly been relegated to the news feed, but a Wall Street Journal report suggests that could be changing soon. Sources tell the paper that Facebook is working on an all-video app for set-top boxes and interfaces. The report also indicates […]

    This Headband Lets You Control Netflix With Your Mind

    The top minds at Netflix have got this wearable tech thing down pat. Every once in a while, the company declares a hack day, letting employees devise all kinds of Netflix contraptions just for fun (but ones that should really be put on the market). A little over a year ago, they warmed up winter […]

    15 Things You Should Know About Riverdale

    Tonight Riverdale premieres on the CW. Now yes, the title of the show shares a name with the same fictional town featured in the classic Archie comic books, but that’s about where the similarities end. This series is way more Pretty Little Liars than old jalopies. First of all, it revolves around the grisly murder […]

    DirecTV NOW Review

    I dumped cable a few years ago and replaced it with Hulu, Netflix and Sling TV. So being a cord cutter, I was super psyched by the announcement of DirecTV NOW with its 120+ channel lineup. After several weeks of testing DirecTV NOW, can I testify that it’s ready for prime time? Not quite yet. The user […]

    JBL Boost TV Review

    The JBL Boost TV is aptly named — it really does provide a much needed boost to your flat panel TV. I absolutely love my TCL Roku TV — it’s an incredible value and a great TV for the money, but its weakest aspect, like with most TVs, is its audio. It’s not just that the built-in […]

    Sony Might Just Have the OLED TV to Beat at CES 2017

    Ever since Samsung and Sony popped in and out of the United States OLED market a few years ago, LG has gone unchallenged in the world of OLED TVs. That’s changing at CES 2017, as Sony has announced their new line of Bravia OLED TVs. Combining the superior color contrast and spectrum of OLED with […]

    LG’s Latest OLED TV Might as Well Be Wallpaper

    If there was any doubt about which company was going to rule TVs at CES 2017, it’s gone. LG has announced their 2017 line of TVs, and it’s headlined by the W7 Signature — the flexible OLED panel is so thin (thinner than any smartphone), it can only be mounted (looks more like affixed) to the […]

    TCL Ups Their Game With Beautiful 4k HDR Tellies

    We’ve been big fans of TCL televisions lately, and there’s little wonder why — as it becomes cheaper to manufacture high-resolution LCD displays, it’s become easier for smaller companies to compete with giants like Samsung and LG by producing TVs almost as good for a fraction of the price. The competition is only heating up […]

    Samsung Introduces New Even More Premium Line of QLED TVs

    It’s CES time, and that means lots of new televisions. But, televisions have been hitting a wall the past few years — we’re getting about as much as we can out of LED-backlit LCD panels, but OLED panels are still a bit too hard to source and produce to go mainstream. That hasn’t stopped Samsung from […]

    Lenovo’s 500 Multimedia Controller is a Wireless Windows 10 Keyboard That Fits in Your Hands

    With larger Windows 10 all-in-one PCs like the Surface Studio primed to become entertainment centers and possible TV replacements for cord cutters, a proper remote control is needed. While there will probably be better and better apps for this, those looking for a physical solution need only look to Lenovo. At CES 2017, they’re debuting […]
