Ooma Expands Into Home Monitoring

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 15:08:33 +0000

Ooma, the long-time independent and quite stellar VoIP service provider, is finally poised to expand beyond its core telephonic capabilities… as foreshadowed by the legendary Rich Buchanan way back in 2009: Ooma won’t say exactly what complementary products it will introduce, but Buchanan will speak in general terms. “We will have applications that fall into […]

TiVo Tests Cloud DVR With Bolt

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:20:15 +0000

Due to a number of fortuitous leaks, we know TiVo is pursuing cloud recording capabilities for retail devices. However, whereas the functionality seemed specific to upcoming Tablo-fighting Mavrik hardware, a Bolt owner inadvertently received the notification above — suggesting testing is underway. It remains to be seen how much such a service might run and if offloading cable television […]

Cyber Monday Deals Worth Your Time

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 14:52:03 +0000

Google Chromecast ($25, three months of HBO NOW) Chromecast isn’t my thing. But I’m old and require a physical remote. However, this is a good deal on a generally practical solution to get app content onto a television, controlled by smartphone. Considering HBO NOW runs $15 a month and you get three free, this is […]

TiVo’s Best Holiday Deal Rewards Cord Cutters

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 19:07:46 +0000

TiVo’s out with their annual Thanksgiving / Black Friday deals… and they’re way more compelling than what we’ve seen in recent years, despite TiVo’s usual poor presentation. For example, their refurbished $200 TiVo Roamio OTA represents a stellar value. Although you might not realize it because they don’t clearly communicate it includes Lifetime All-In service. We’re […]

Google Deals Of The Day

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 17:35:30 +0000

Google Home ($99) Google’s Amazon Alexa competitor is $30 off.

TiVo Mavrik Takes On Tablo For Television Streaming

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 00:47:44 +0000

By way of TVPredictions we learn that TiVo recently passed a “Mavrik” trademark filing through the USPTO. Fortunately, a quick Google search turns up all sorts of goodies… including the photo above and the Mavrik configurator. Based on these supporting materials, including the smoking gun URL, it’s fairly clear that the unannounced, unreleased TiVo Mantis has gone through something of a rebrand. Perhaps […]

Is Roku Prepping DVR?

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 13:12:53 +0000

Roku’s announced a seriously impressive update… assuming you’re running recent, supported hardware. And, surely, the highlight of OS 7.5 is the ability to pause live OTA television on Roku Televisions. While Roku’s CEO declared the “DVR is dead” way back in 2011, the company seemingly recognizes the ongoing draw of linear programming in 2016 – but intends to […]
