If you have a Windows 10 PC, you have access to the Windows Store which has many phone and tablet Apps.

One of my favorites is called "The CW" which allows you to watch content from the CW and CW Seed for free without any authentication.

I'm currently watching "Almost Human" which originally ran on the Fox Network during 2013-2014 season.

The CW App is also available for iOS, Android, and XBox platforms.

+David Pick Almost Human is on the CW Seed App for iOS and Android that seems to have more content from different sources.

That would be great on Netflix!

What are you binge watching and are you doing it alone?
 
#cordcutter #binge What are you binge watching and are you doing it alone?
Strictly speaking, binge watching isn't a new form of onanism. On the other hand, more than two-thirds of binge watchers do it alone in front of a screen…

Another interesting content deal...
Under the deal, production will increase to 35 episodes a year from the current 18, and a spinoff show and another new educational series for children will be created.

I watched it earlier today.Honestly thought the entire season 1 was filmed by how well the pilot was put together.

I really hope Amazon does make it a series.

+Mathew Ingram  tweeted this article.  It's from a couple months ago, but it is dense with information and worth a look.  Some interesting tidbits:

"In the first quarter of 2015, Netflix’s 41M US accounts averaged nearly 2 hours of video on the service each day – making the “network” bigger than two of the four major US broadcasters and twice as large as the largest cable network."

Quoting the Hollywood Reporter:
“Let’s say you had a show where 80 percent of the people you show it to think it’s pretty good. They might watch it, but none of those people think it’s a great show nor is it their favorite show. But then you have another show where only 30 percent of people like it. For every single one of them, they’re going to watch every single episode and they love it. Well, in an on-demand world, show No. 2 is more valuable.”

And a whole section on original television series: "...the heightened competition in original series has increased both the risk and the costs involved with the content form. ... To secure the best series, networks have also been forced to significantly increase their bids and commitments ...As a result, it’s not uncommon for networks to renew shows before their pilot has even aired – thereby increasing downside risk considerably."

And: "Many of today’s original series are being cancelled not because they aren’t good enough or because there’s too much out there, but because the industry’s business models and metrics haven’t been updated to the on-demand, non-linear era. Until that changes, cancellation rates will only get worse."

Worth reading.
Linear television networks today face seven key threats that continue to be overlooked, under-addressed or ignored. They don’t all apply to every network (nor are they equally menacing), but as a whole, they’re critical to both understanding and planning for the future of television.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has another good idea!
 
#TV #FCC #MVPD If you love cord cutting, you should be for MVPD classification!
The FCC plans to use MVPD classification to make all cable, satellite and OTT streaming providers play by the same rules and that will drive innovation

+Chris Eckeard Yes, every day with Wheeler seems to be a revelation! I wish he had quashed the AT&T/Dish deal, but that was hardly the worst thing that could have happened. The Tittle II and, now, proposed MVPD reclassification are both very welcome.

Turns out you're not the only one letting a friend log into your Netflix account every once in a while. In fact, if you don't, you're in the minority.

This is probably not far from where we are heading. Make sure you read the guide because there are some hilarious shows. My favorite is Tony Bourdain's upcoming, "Off The Wagon."

TV that doesn't suck, for real…
While PBS is a welcome refuge, there isn't nearly enough factual TV available. Enter CuriosityStream, a new OTT streamer that's chockablock with science!

In the finale of TNG season 1, Data states that "TV" ends as a form of entertainment in 2040. With the rise of online / on demand video, how accurate is this prediction?

No mass release like Netflix but instead sticking to hourly releases. Thoughts?
Hulu said Sunday won't part with its traditional release schedule for new episodes of its original series this fall.

Amazon tried this and failed.Why Hulu continues this is because they still use commercial breaks to supliment the cost.

For those who wish to binge watch an Hulu Orginal series,all you have to do is wait until all available episodes have been released.

On one hand,this article makes me smile for all cord cutters.On the other, possible dark times for studios and the viewing public if there is no money to be made.

Your thoughts?
TV companies’ shares sank this week as fears of cable subscribers’ cutting the cord spooked investors.

You need to talk to your broadband ISP and every once in awhile — you may be due a free broadband upgrade!
As newly minted cord cutter, Sean Gallagher discovered, it pays to keep a close eye on your cable provider — you may be due free broadband upgrade.

Comcast admits cord-cutting is here to stay.

It may be, but I'm still of the opinion that they're thinking they'll 'control' streaming in the mobile market and use key channels to keep cable in the home; thus preserving their dual stream of income (and possibly even a pipe dream of somehow creating a third revenue stream out of charging for streaming on top of internet connectivity).

Despite a slowdown in subscriber growth, the Internet is still propelling Comcast. The country's largest cable company added 180,000 Internet customers in the April-June quarter, the smallest gain in at least two years.

It looks like that phone call I made a few days ago to cut my cable TV service was just in my imagination. According to this article anyway.
Television executives argue the threat of cord-cutting has been greatly exaggerated.

Yes, please tell us more about cord-cutting being a myth and how in-demand your video service is, now that Comcast broadband users now officially outnumber cable subscribers: http://consumerist.com/2015/07/23/comcasts-broadband-customers-officially-outnumber-its-cable-subscribers/
