    The pay TV business used to deny that cord-cutting was a thing. It doesn’t make that argument any more. Related: The pay TV business just posted a historically horrible number, at least in terms of subscribers, by losing 762,000 customers in the first three months of 2017. That estimate comes from MoffettNathanson analyst Craig Moffett, one of those people who used to be skeptical about cord-cutting but became a believer a few years ago. He says the industry just had its worst Q1 ever.

    It’s no secret that the future of entertainment is streaming, and the future is now. After the meteoric success of Netflix, virtually every content provider on the planet was eager to get in on the streaming game. For many, the arrival of streaming services meant finally ditching their cable companies and their astronomical bills. Unfortunately, would-be cord cutters found that Internet streaming could still be costly. With Amazon, Hulu, HBO, SlingTV and countless others all throwing their hats into the ring, subscription fees can add up quickly.In addition to these paid options, there are a plethora of subscription-free websites that...

    The government wants to make it easier for you to buy and use cable boxes from companies other than your cable provider. This could help companies like TiVo, Roku and Apple deliver a cable feed, too, as part of their video recorders or streaming-TV devices. Introducing competition could also help lower people's cable bills. The Federal Communications Commission says that 99 percent of cable and satellite TV customers rent boxes from their cable providers, and that the price of cable boxes has nearly tripled since 1994. Meanwhile, prices of common consumer electronics like cellphones, TVs and computers have fallen sharply....

    The debate will be streamed for free on, without the need to be a cable TV subscriber. In addition, Fox Business is making itself more widely available for a number of its current pay-TV partners, including DirecTV, Suddenlink, Mediacom and the NCTC, letting subscribers who don’t normally get Fox Business have access to the channel for the debate.
  • CES: Dish Goes After Millennials With Sling TV Alternative to Cable, Satellite

    01/05/2015 9:15:01 PM PST · by Mozilla · 14 replies
    Dish Network recognizes that people, especially millennials, aren't subscribing to pay TV and they're hoping to make that segment of consumers new customers with the introduction of Sling TV, an over-the-top service that costs $20 a month with no contract beyond a month-to-month commitment. Dish announced Sling TV, which has no direct connection with Slingbox or Sling Media (although both have a link to EchoStar, the parent of Disney Network), at CES on Monday, when CEO Joe Clayton introduced it as "a brand for this consumer segment" that "offers our new customers programming that is tailored to their wants and...

    Primetime TV Shows That Flopped Find International Success On Viki As a global TV site, Viki doesn’t just offer subtitles to make popular TV shows understandable, it’s now helping shows that don’t do well in their home countries capture loyal fans from unsuspecting places in the world. Filipino shows, for example, are finding success in Japan. When the Japanese film, “Tragedy of W” first aired in 1984, it flopped in its home country, but was a hit once it appeared on Viki—particularly in Europe. Similarly, the Korean TV show, “Playful Kiss,” didn’t take off in Korea initially, but is now...

    While we wait to see if freshmen series like Almost Human and Tomorrow People survive for a second year, we thought it’d be a good time to take a look back at some of our favorite one-season sci-fi wonders.We’re drawing close to the dog days of summer, and though there’s more original sci-fi fare than there used to be, it’s still essentially the doldrums for a genre fan. Luckily for all of us, that’s where streaming services like Netflix come in handy. What better way to spend the downtime than to catch up on some gems that never got a...

    Digital-video recorder company TiVo Inc. (TIVO) and online movie rental service Netflix Inc. (NFLX) said Thursday they are teaming up to provide Netflix and some TiVo subscribers with the ability to have thousands of movies and TV episodes instantly streamed from Netflix directly to their TVs. The two companies said they are initiating a test of the new capability Thursday in several thousand U.S. households and expect it to be broadly available in early December.

    Has any FReepers completely ditched their cable or satellite provider and went exclusively with streaming services, such as Roku or Wi-Fi Blu-Ray? I did. I had cable that I was paying upwards to $80 a month. I got rid of it and simply stream Netflix, HuluPlus, or Amazon Prime and saved over half.
  • Netflix, as Easy as Changing the Channel

    The New York Times ^ | October 14, 2013 | Brian Stelter
    The television two-step is familiar to nearly every household with a TV set and a Netflix subscription. To watch cable, the television must be on one setting; to browse Netflix, it has to be on another. For some family members, toggling between the two is easy; for others, it’s so befuddling that it discourages any straying from cable at all. Now, in a sign of on-demand TV’s popularity, some cable companies, including Comcast, Charter Communications and Cox Communications, are talking with Netflix about doing away with the two-step and making the subscription service — and other online video services —...

    I'd appreciate suggestions for online streaming TV and movie providers (other than biggies like Netflix or those from specific cable systems). I've watched a Hulu at times and I think it is legit, but Google turns up a lot of garbage that really looks questionable, or sites that ask for personal information that feel like scams. I'm not a huge TV watcher so it's not worth inviting viruses and malware or putting up with time limits and poor quality feeds. I'm willing to pay a reasonable fee for a service or site that would allow me to watch classic TV...

    Aereo could kill TV business model, broadcasters sayBy Andrew Feinberg - 05/11/12 01:22 PM ET Barry Diller's upstart Aereo service, which lets paying customers record and watch over-the-air television stations online, could destroy the economic model behind television, an NBC-Universal exec said in a court filing. Aereo is being sued by all of the major television broadcasters in federal court in New York, where the service was launched. In a sworn declaration, NBC-Universal executive vice president for content distribution Matt Bond said Aereo could alter how cable and satellite companies handle traditional TV stations. He said Aereo could let the...

    Because I know that FReepers are smart and ingenious I am coming to you for assistance and insight in being able to get unplugged from DirecTV. They are raising our rates again. We currently use Netflix, but are also considering adding HuluPlus. Hubby streams from his PS3 in his game room, and in the living room we stream via BlueRay. Hubby and I are trying to get details on unplugging without losing our ability to watch our favorite (cable) show.
