Love this....
PlayStation Vue, the web-TV service for owners of Sony Corp.’s video-game consoles, has signed up more than 100,000 subscribers since its March 2015 debut, people with knowledge of the matter said, good news for entertainment companies that are losing pay-TV subscribers.

+Zarthan South I think OP means for people that watch movies and shows more than once. My kids want to watch the same few movies over and over. I wonder how this works for movies that they stop having as part of their streaming lineup. Do the downloads stop working based on that. Also for slow connections you can download the movie and watch it buffer free. This is great for me on Friday and Saturday when some apps just won't stream for nothing.

This has made me a very unhappy camper. The CW is seriously 90% of what I watch on Hulu is from the CW. The 100, Flash/Arrow, The originals, Vampire Dairies, soon to be Super Girl even though I didn't care for first season on CBS. I cancel for the summer like I always do after all the season finales. I pick up HBO for a month and binge game of thrones once it hits its season finale. Then I pick up CW again in the fall as the shows start up again. They sure are making it hard to see stuff the way I want to see it.

I've just added CW back to my channels on Plex. I've also sideloaded the CW app on my Nvidia Shield.

I don't know what they think they're accomplishing with this stunt. Maybe they're trying to gather more of the advertising dollars? Historically, that backfires, as the people who do the ads well have more resources than a home-grown solution.

Will Vidgo TV be the "go to" service it claims. Can it unseat Sling TV and PS Vue in the OTT market? Will it help accelerate cord cutting among current cable and satellite providers? The website claims it will come to market in H1 2016. Well only 13 days left in H1 2016 so I guess we will see very soon.

A new service providing content from Nerdist, Crunchyroll, Roosterteeth, and more. Very geek oriented, ad-free, but likely paid for. Does it interest you?
Ellation, a web video-focused startup funded by Otter Media, is planning to roll out a subscription video service this fall featuring exclusive content from digital media firms like Nerdist and Crunchyroll.

Nice upgrade for #NVIDIA   #SHIELD  owners here. #Plex  is coming and it will stream locally and off your NAS too with full hardware transcode offload. Nice...
In case you haven’t already noticed, we’re pretty big fans of the NVIDIA SHIELD. The Tegra X1-powered console runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is part media streamer and part gaming box. And thankfully, NVIDIA has been very adamant about keeping the SHIELD fresh over its lifetime with a bevy of updates. Last month, we brought you news that

Walmart is having a cord-cutting bundle sale on their site. Basically they're combinations of 1 TV, a Mohu Antenna, a Wifi Router, and some form of a streaming box. Worth looking into I think.

Keep in mind you are getting an antenna and router with it, and some choices in boxes.

This is a few days old but something worth noteing
YouTube is working on a plan to launch online TV service in 2017. They will provide the service by the subscription-based streaming service called “Unplugged.” YouTube has set the high priority on this project and this project might come in to live in the coming year. As of now YouTube is the best video services

I've been using Sling TV since launch day last year on our Roku's and iOS Devices. The interface is the same on both platforms.

The recently added Apple TV version took some time to get used to, but I like it this interface the best.

How is Sling TV as service? The live streams are fair to good while the Watch ESPN App (used with credentials) is good to excellent quality. The service itself has wide variety of content. We mainly use for our kids for Disney, Nick and Baby TV channels.

Now that's Sling TV has Nick Channels, we've been watching Nick Jr with our kids.

One of the shows the kids like watching is Team Unizoomi, which is both educational and entertaining.

I couldn't help but notice the character "Bot" looks uncannily like the Android Robot logo. What do you think?

"11.22.63" is a quality Hulu Original starring James Franco, and (legitimately) only offered on Hulu.

Universal Copyright wants this series taken down -- that's absurd since Hulu created the series.

WHEN attempting to shut down piracy websites fails, there is always the option to remove all the content from the entire internet.

+Matt Lane I'm surprised that Universal Copyright was trying to have Hulu take down its own original content, "11.22.63".

What's next? Netflix' Daredevil? Amazon's Transparent?

Canceling Sling TV just too many issues. Tried to watch the game tonight and got nothing but the orange circle. Try to watch ESPN and it buffers a lot. Sports are the only reason, I care for live TV.

I'm gonna go ahead and try PsVue.

+Manny Ramirez No, you can run up to 5 separate streams for PS Vue through the Fire TV and Fire TV stick. We have PS Vue and love it and do not have any kind of Sony Playstation (1, 2, 3 or 4) just a Fire TV and 2 Fire TV sticks. Word of warning on the sticks, the menu response for everything is slow, but the streaming works perfectly 99.99% of the time [using Comcast "75 mbps" internet service w/ Netgear R7000 WiFi router and Arris Surfboard SB6183 modem]

Hey, I'm a recent cord cutter (going on a month now). My only connection to xfinity is my high speed Internet and basic local channels as PSVue doesn't offer them in my area... Is there a cheap alternative to paying for basic cable? I need Fox, CBS, NBC and ABC.
