Monday, January 14th, 2019

Following its failed venture in video streaming with the ill-fated Go90 service, Verizon is moving on to new streaming pastures. According to The Verge, the telecom giant is currently testing a cloud gaming service called Verizon Gaming with a small group of Nvidia Shield users.

[Update: User trials underway] AT&T is testing a DirectTV Android TV set-top device, trials expected early next year

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

Last year, Variety reported that AT&T was working on an Android TV-powered device for so-called "over-the-top" streaming of its DirectTV service, based on the contents of an FCC filing. Based on the contents of a recent AT&T earnings call (transcribed by Seeking Alpha), development has advanced to the point of internal beta testing, with trials expected "in the first half of next year."

The Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K streaming player is down to just $40 at Walmart

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

Xiaomi's Mi Box S is already an almost-too-good-to-be-true bargain. For less than the price of a Chromecast Ultra, you get 4K, HDR streaming apps on your TV — and it works as a Chromecast receiver. The streaming box was down to $50 last month, and now it's even cheaper: just 40 bucks.

A cheap Android TV box is one of the best ways to get smarts to your non-smart TV (they do still exist), or to upgrade the terrible apps that came pre-loaded on a smart TV that's smart only in name.

Thanksgiving Film Fest: You can watch ‘Hackers’ and 98 other movies for free on YouTube now (with ads)

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

If your wallet is already suffering from the major influx of pre-Black Friday deals, here's a welcome relief: YouTube now offers a bunch of free, ad-supported movies (at least in the US). Forget about your holiday spending woes and binge watch old school classics like Hackers, The Terminator, and a marathon's worth of Rocky films.

Google's video platform quietly introduced its library of 99 free movies in October. YouTube told AdAge it will add more flicks in the future, but for now the free section is stocked with an interesting mix of 90s and 00s era romantic comedies (Legally Blonde), tween movies from the same era (Agent Cody Banks, Sleepover), martial arts movies, the less well-regarded Pink Panthers, Rocky flicks, and a few interesting docs.

YouTube TV rolling out full DVR control on more channels

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

Google's YouTube TV offers a reasonably good value for streaming live TV. It has all your local stations, a fair number of cable networks, and several sports broadcasters. However, the unlimited cloud DVR has been artificially limited on many channels. Rather than the recorded version, some channels force you to watch VOD versions with ads. Today, YouTube TV will start opening up DVR options for more networks.

YouTube TV added the option to see different versions of your recorded programs earlier this year—you can tap the down arrow next to programs to expand the list.

Google posts guide to fix overlapping YouTube and Play Music subscriptions

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

It's been a volatile time for Google's streaming services. YouTube Red was rebranded as YouTube Premium in May and YouTube Music Premium was launched, which lacked some features found on Google Play Music. The product team held an AMA with to calm some of the anger behind it all. Amid the confusion, it’s possible users might have subscribed to memberships with the same services. To help customers sort out their subscription mess and save some money, Google posted a YouTube Help document detailing the various feature sets and steps to take for remedying duplicate music accounts.
