[Deal Alert] Roku Ultra is $79.99 ($20 off) at Amazon and Best Buy

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Roku's high-end streaming box, the Roku Ultra, got a hardware refresh and a price cut late last year, falling from $129 to $99. Now, Amazon and Best Buy have it for even less, at $79.99.

Roku Ultra pushes 4K/HDR video, and people really like it: it has a rating of 4.4 stars on Amazon and 4.7 at Best Buy. The remote also has a unique feature among dedicated streaming boxes: a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, so you can listen to your shows without bothering those around you.

Google Play Movies & TV on Roku is getting an update with a new look, better browsing, and more

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Google Play Movies & TV's Roku channel is getting a face lift. The new channel looks a little like YouTube's TV web wrapper, with content filling most of the screen and navigation on the left. "The entire experience has been redesigned to put the focus on content above all else," Google said in a blog post.

In addition to its new, sleek, and content-centric aesthetic, the channel has gained a revamped TV page in place of the old My TV Shows page that offers suggestions for what to watch next.

Weekend poll: Which music streaming services do you use?

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

Earlier this week, Google revealed its latest music streaming service: YouTube Music. Unlike the existing app of the same name—which is little more than a video player—the new YouTube music would be more like Play Music or Spotify, but this time with YouTube semi-independently calling the shots. The organization and flow of subscriptions between YouTube Red, Play Music, and the new YouTube Music and YouTube Premium has led to some confusion, but the concept of Google maintaining two separate music streaming services inspires the question: Do you use a music streaming service?

Steam Link app now available for Android

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Earlier this month, Valve announced it was working on a Steam Link app for Android and iOS. Much like the separate Steam Link box, it would allow you to stream games from a local PC. The beta version was expected to arrive on May 21, but it has now arrived a few days early.

Once you install it, you have to pair it with a PC running Steam on your local network (and possibly install a driver or two).

YouTube Red is now YouTube Premium, YouTube Music partially replacing Google Play Music

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Google's current services for music and video overlap a bit... to say the least. There's YouTube Red, which gives you ad-free videos and some bonus features. Then you have YouTube Music, which is more oriented towards music videos, and requires a YouTube Red subscription. Google Play Music is purely music-based, and functions as both a streaming service (like Spotify) and a storage location for your vast collection of MP3s.

Rumors have been circulating for months about a new service, believed to be named 'YouTube Remix.' It would replace Google Play Music, and presumably YouTube Music as well.

Spotify adds on-demand listening to free service

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Spotify has a lot of competition in the streaming music space, but today it announced a new feature that could set it apart. Even if you choose not to pay for a premium Spotify subscription, you can now choose specific tracks to stream. Previously, the free version of the service only supported shuffle mode.

This is not, however, a complete free-for-all. Free users have their pick of on-demand songs from Spotify's 15 top playlists, including the personalized Discover Weekly mix.

AT&T CEO describes new $15/month streaming service during antitrust testimony

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson surprise-announced the company's upcoming streaming service, called Watch, during his testimony at AT&T's ongoing antitrust trial this week. The service will be free for AT&T unlimited wireless subscribers, a spokesperson later said, and cost $15 per month for everyone else. The service won't include sports programming.

Watch will allow subscribers to watch cable content without a cable subscription. AT&T already provides a service like this one in DirecTV Now, which starts at $35 a month; Watch will be considerably less expensive, and sounds like it could be a good deal for folks who want cable but aren't into sports.
