HBO subscribers can look forward to an app for their portable devices as well as their PCs. HBO Go will soon stream the channel's movies and TV episodes to iPad/iPhones/Android smartphones and is unlimited and instant, with plenty of HD content. Reportedly any season is available for free, as well as bonus features and extras, giving us another excuse to never leave the house for entertainment. Look for the portable service to come out early next month.

Indie fans, Fandor is for you. The new streaming service carries independent, international film, shorts and documentaries that you just can't find on other sources. Right now the service has about 2,5000 titles that you can access for $10.00 monthly via Boxee, but we see them hooking up with other set tops as well as the service grows.

Netflix Captures 'House of Cards"

kspacey.jpg

Netflix has apparently outbid cable channels to gain exclusive rights to the new 'House of Cards,' a David Fincher drama starring Kevin Spacey. They now get the first two seasons at a cost of over $100 million, perhaps a sign that they have their sites on vying with HBO, Showtime, etc.

All we know is that when all is said and done at the end of a day, when we want to watch a movie, we just want to stream something that isn't yet available and would rather Netflix spend the money on conversion rather than competing with the big guys.
