The latest update focuses on content discovery: a customisable feed that lets you know when theatrical releases hit the streaming world. There’s also a cross-platform search function. It’s currently limited to Netflix, which is a little pointless, but it will be super-handy when more services are made compatible (which is very much the plan).
The Gear is just one of a few compelling VR headsets, but it’s managed to situate itself nicely for user adoption by aggressively partnering with various media outlets to experiment with consumer VR experiences. Already we’ve NBA games and political debates. Oh yeah, and it’s just under 100 bucks.
The Amazon Fire TV has some drawbacks but if you think about it, they’re not really a big deal. The User interface might be a little ugly for some but you’ll spend hours watching that you probably won’t notice it after a while. Amazon has so much movies and TV shows that being able to only watch stuff on Amazon is not a problem at all. As for gaming then you better know your priorities because it’s either one or the other because you can’t really have both. Nvidia Shield TV tries to do this but it seems they are more catered to gamers then media consumers and the price being equal to other gaming consoles really shows that.
This is where Android TV boxes start to venture into strange legal territory. To get the functionality many of you are hoping for, the easiest route is to purchase one of these legally grey devices. However, the Kodi platform isn’t actually illegal to use – the way you decide to acquire the content to stream could be – and you’re better off buying an off-the-shelf streaming box and installing Kodi onto it yourself if you want to stay on the right side of the law.
It also supports Bluetooth as well as 5G Wi-Fi technologies. The Quad Core Cortex A9 2.0 Giga Hertz CPU offers great speed when compared with other Dual Core or Quad Core Android TV Boxes available in the market.
It’s hard to believe, but Android TV was unveiled almost three years ago. This home entertainment service is a telly addict’s dream, as it makes searching through on-demand TV services easy as pie, with the power of Google search at your fingertips (or the tip of your tongue, using voice control).
Highly Compatible: With the multiple video support, we can watch videos of any kind of format on this Android TV Box. It doesn’t make a difference whether it is MKV, WMV, MPG, MPEG, DAT, AVI, MOV, ISO, MP4, RM or JPG format. This box is compatible with most of the formats.
Excellent streaming box. It’s the only one out of a dozen I’ve bought and tested that is designed to hold a standard or slimline eide hard drive at least to a terabyte capacity and perhaps more. If you prefer to download the shows and programs you enjoy, this box could not better better with it ability to hold and utilize a simple bare hard drive just like in a desktop computer would have.

Although this TV box does pretty much what other top quality devices do, it does have an advantage over its competitors. It’s the way this device lets you enjoy games. Nvidia is known for its hardware that has been powering GPUs for decades now. This device includes all that power to help you play the latest games on your TV. The remotes that come with this device are very impressive. You can play exclusive Shield games with it.
This week at the NAB Show, the annual trade show for people who make video content, virtual reality is going to be everywhere. Condition One, a startup-slash-studio that was earlier to VR filmmaking than most, is making one of the show’s early announcements: a new VR camera called the Bison. This 360 rig is made for the kind of run-and-gun documentary shooting the company’s known for. Or at least the closest you can get to that given the current state of VR tech. It won’t be for sale, but it will be part of the company’s toolkit as it continues to make VR movies—so if you want footage from the camera, you have to hire Condition One to shoot it.
[More than 2,000 applications are waiting for you] You could install your favorite applications and enjoy advanced technology. It could run many games, play unlimited movies, TV shows, music without freezing
We were all brought up with TV channels. No matter from what provider we signed up with, we would use the remote and flick between channels. How many times did we curse that, as Bruce Springsteen wrote, ‘There’s 57 Channels and Nothin’ On’?
There are lots of better somethings, no matter what platform you use. But a brand-new update to Pocket Casts makes it hands-down the best iPhone podcasts app, not to mention the best overall service for people who want to podcast from all manner of different devices. The new version for iOS, Pocket Casts 6.0, brings the app—which was great for a long time, and has kind of languished the last couple of years—into full-fledged modernity. It’s now really easy to find new podcasts to listen to, sort through the ones you already have, and more. Pocket Casts keeps lists of episodes you’ve already started, ones you’ve downloaded but not listened to (which is handy for clearing space on your phone), and more.
The odd thing about Android TV, though, is that Google already had a strategy for such couchsurfing: the company’s wildly popular $35 Chromecast HDMI dongle. Google had been sending the message that developers didn’t actually need to build apps for TV at all — simply special webpages for TV that could receive commands from a phone. The Verge understands that the Chromecast won’t go away, so that may mean developers will have to build two different interfaces, one for Chromecast and one for Android TV.

A long time ago, it seems, I worked in a “big-box” electronics store. No, not the blue one. I worked at the red one that closed it’s doors back in 2009. Back then, we had thousands of people coming in the store looking for iPods. But, like Apple will do, they didn’t make enough to go around, so we had to sell what we had. And what we had was a lot of generic MP3 players. People would come in asking for an iPod and the first question we would ask is “do you want an Apple iPod, or are you looking for an MP3 player?”
1) By installing a DNS proxy on my laptop (connected to TV with HDMI), would I have to make changes to the DNS settings on the computer every time I want to switch between watching American channels and CBC/or other Canadian web content?

Canadian television networks were just starting to put full episodes online and it was only for the purpose of their cable or satellite subscribers to be able to catch up on recent shows they missed. The stream quality was often poor and laggy and few people actually knew the content existed.
One feature that might see the light of day is DVB-T2-Lite, which will let the BBC offer reliable live broadcasts on mobile devices with less impact on battery life. We have yet to see whether this will work with 3G networks and allow truly mobile TV consumption.
