AirTV arrives… without OTA guide integration

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 12:52:21 +0000

In what one customer suggests “feels like a bait & switch,” AirTV has shipped without its primary selling point enabled. Instead of directly integrating over-the-air television content into the Sling TV guide, there is merely a button to launch the separate, Google-produced Live Channels OTA app. Further, the promised Netflix integration may also be incomplete leading […]

TiVo’s Amazon Video App Updated For 2017

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 14:42:02 +0000

Over the last few days, TiVo Bolt, Roamio, Premiere, and Mini units have been updated with a refreshed Amazon Video app to more closely mirror the latest experience deployed to other platforms like Roku and Amazon’s own Fire TV. Beyond the large tiles and left column navigation, as pictured on my Roamio, two notable enhancements are […]

The Tablo Update & Giveaway

Cord cutting featured prominently at CES this month, including a pair of announcements by our pals at Tablo. Later this year, they’ll offer an Android TV app that provides local television playback with DVR capabilities.

Slingbox Manufacturing Halted… In Favor Of Video Production Ecosystem

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 16:44:10 +0000

In a move that probably surprises to no one, I can confirm reports that Echostar subsidiary Sling Media halted Slingbox production last year. Sling Media, the video place-shifting pioneer, has stopped manufacturing Slingbox units, but will continue to sell Slingboxes that remain still in stock, Satellite Business News reported in its January 6 issue. In fact, this seems […]

AirTV in Action

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 15:08:59 +0000

Cord Cutters News has posted a video demonstration of AirTV from CES… and it sure looks intriguing. AirTV is a small Android set-top that comes bundled with a USB tuner ($130) and boots directly into Sling TV. While you don’t actually need to be a subscriber of the streaming service, there’s no point in picking up […]

TiVo Needs Your Help Testing Cloud DVR

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 19:19:31 +0000

As revealed last year, TiVo was prepping a cloud DVR service option for retail hardware, with indications that over-the-air television recordings originating from Roamio, Bolt, and upcoming Mavrik devices will be stored and streamed remotely. While this is a CES no-show, we know work continues. Indeed, TiVo needs your help as they fine tune the offering. […]

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 21:26:07 +0000

While TiVo’s cloud DVR and cord cutting Mavrik were CES no-shows, the DVR pioneer is once again presenting its new interface. Code-named “Project Hydra,” the UX offers a beautiful, customizable interface that lets viewers quickly and easily search for, browse and consume programming from all video sources – live, recorded, on demand and streaming.

TiVo Contemplates Alexa Voice Control

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 16:24:09 +0000

From CES, TiVo has reaffirmed their intentions to bring voice control to the platform… this year. While cagey on details, and perhaps still contemplating their approach(es), some interesting nuggets have come to light: In a briefing here at the show, Tivo SVP and GM Michael Hawkey hinted at the likelihood of a natural language interface […]

AirTV Unifies Sling TV, Netflix & OTA

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 16:02:46 +0000

After several years of development, it appears a redesigned AirTV Player is nearly here. Originally conceived as an over-the-air network tuner, like Tablo, to stream local antenna television into Sling TV’s user interface, AirTV appears to have been rethought… and nears arrival as an Android-powered, Technicolor-produced set-top box vs reusing Echostar’s Slingbox scraps, Oh, this rendition still channels live television. But […]

Trick Out Roku With Sideclick Remote

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 21:04:22 +0000

The fine folks at Sideclick have provided two Roku accessories to share with our audience. As a refresher, Sideclick clips onto your streamer’s remote to provide additional control — think televisions, soundbars, and the like. Beyond Roku, they also offer interchangeable sleds for Fire TV, Apple TV, and the couple dozen Nexus Players out there. It […]
