Fox to Go Exclusive For First 8 Days


If you like catching up with
episodes soon after they air, beginning this fall you need Hulu Plus, cable or satellite company to catch them and other Fox shows the first 8 days after airing. Although other stations like ESPN and EPIX have already begun this practice, Fox is the first major network to adopt the plan. The change will occur August 15 and we will see if the others follow suit.

Amazon Adds to Prime Inventory


Amazon is doing some big-time hyping of their Prime service by adding hundreds of movies over the last few months and promising more than 2,000 movie and TV titles to come like The Tudors and Star Trek. You pay just $79.00 per year for unlimited streaming. That makes the price about $6.50 per month, a small savings over Netflix, but we suspect loyal subscribers will not fix what isn't really broken, just damaged. Still, if you have yet to choose, you get a month free tryout.

Bar Karma Involves Users


Sims creator Will Wright, perhaps tiring of all-virtual interaction, came up with an Internet series that gets its ideas from its fans. Bar Karma was dreamed up about four months ago and concerns a bar somewhere between parallel timelines. The 30 minute episodes on Current TV contain scenes formed from viewers ideas that the production staff turns into reality, sort of. Take a peek at the series and let your creativity get engaged. Who knows, your input may become part of the show.

YouTube Leanback Launches


YouTube's official launch of Leanback is certainly impressive. The service, especially intended for a big screen TVs, lets you watch videos uninterrupted in HD. Once you log in, it will show you those based on your preferences. From there you can navigate by keyboard directional arrows or simply start typing. The interface allows movie rentals via the YouTube Store and other video feeds organized by category.

ivi App Streams Online Networks


Online TV is closer than ever. ivi is a new app that you can download to your PC, Mac or Linux system that will stream content from 25 channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, PBS and the CW. You get a free trial for 30 days, then it will cost you $4.99 a month and $.99 for the ability to record. The company promises no buffering, a super plus in our book. Available only for PCs and laptops for now, look for smartphone apps in the near future.

Online Channel EpixHD Offers Freebie


Epix is a new online cable channel that also streams movies. Selections include cult classics such as the original "Friday 13th" and "Blood Simple" to recent films like "The Cove" and the first "Iron Man." Request an invite code and you might receive a 7 day pass. They say that the codes are available on a first come, first serve basis, but we expect it will be like the Netflix free trial for all. The service varies in price, depending on your TV provider.

Verizon Adds More Net Content to Fios


Verizon has added more Internet access to its Fios TV service. Users can now access YouTube and tunes from iHeartRadio. The free upgrade is the company's latest attempt to compete not only with cable providers such Comcast and Time Warner, but also online sources like Netflix and Amazon.

We don't suspect they have too much to worry about. A recent survey by Consumerist found Comcast the Worst Company In America for 2010 and gave them the "Golden Poo" award.

FreeTube - TV Without Commercials


We got carried away a couple of days ago exploring FreeTube, a relatively new site that features movies, sports, news and other Internet media. One of the aspects that we most liked were their webcams that featured Beluga Whales, a bird sanctuary, penguins, flesh-eating beetles and the Smithsonian Zoo's pandas. By the way, diagnostics are included to make sure your PC is set up to handle the broadcasts.

HBO Launches VOD GO


HBO has launched GO, obviously in an effort to grab some of that online VOD money from Netflix and Amazon. You can get their movies, original series, sports and TV series in HD, as well as bonus features and extras. Unfortunately, you have to be a subscriber or have FiOs TV for the free service and if you would like to sign up for only the online viewing, that's not going to happen. So this is good news for HBO subscribers, but we don't think that Netflix users will want to give up their minimal $8.99 to get most of the same, including many HBO movies and TV series.

Hulu May Charge For Older Shows


Hulu has been free up to this point, but the online viewing site may start charging for some of its programs. While trying to find a figure that most would pay for, the company may set a $4.99 per month subscription rate for older shows like "30 Rock," "House" and "Modern Family." Look for the change to take effect in the next six months.

Chumby One - Less Bucks, Faster Speed


After 2 years on the market, there will soon be a new Chumby in town. The WiFi Chumby One will have a new hard shell, a faster CPU from 350 to 454mHz, FM and Internet radio. The 3.5" 320x240 display will remain the same and there are still about 1,500 widgets available. The price should be around $100.00, half the price of the original.
