We may actually have Internet-delivered TV by mid-2015 but we get a little more excited by Netflix’s chaos monkeys.

Primary Target

Verizon CEO Lowell MCAdam: Launch by Mid-2015. Big 4 broadcasters, “custom channels” like AwesomenessTV (Goldman Sachs Communacopia conference) "Everyone understands it will go to a la carte," "Over the last six months to a year that dialogue has changed dramatically."
Dish filing trademarks for “NuTV” (The Android app for DishWorld, the company’s existing online video subscription service for international and foreign-language TV networks, already uses Nutv as its app ID on Google’s Play store.)

Signals Intelligence

Netflix Instasearch on Web. Instant matches with cover art.
Netflix launched in France today. (No House of Cards, that’s on Canal+). Based in Luxembourg to get around 40% rule. Still can’t put movies on newer than 3 years old.

Gear Up

$150 M1 WiFi
SlingTV ($300) replaces Slingbox 500
Retooled UI coming to 500 as well
Gallery feature, which is an overlay on your actual TV, showing you what’s on in a more visual manner
Browse current sports scores—and see them ranked by recommended viewer interest via sports website Thuuz
Rotten Tomatoes scores and icons in the movie listings

Front Lines

Now the broadband opportunity is quite a bit bigger." Bewkes said the company is "seriously considering what is the best way to deal with online distribution." HBO GO also was added to older European set-top boxes in 14 regions by using cloud virtualization from ActiveVideo.
All you have to do is install the Amazon shopping app, then use the in-app tools to download and install the Amazon Instant Video player app from the Amazon app store. Of course that means you need to enable the sitting that allows you to install apps from unknown sources.
Facebook now allows users to upload videos directly to its site. This enables the site to sell ads with the videos, the report said.
But that's up from 2.7 percent last year and 2.2 percent two years earlier.
That means MUBI only ever has 30 movies. It costs $5 a month or $35 a year. IN addition to the PS3 you can access MUBI on iOS, Android tablets, Sony Bravia TVs and the Web.

Under surveillance

MakerBot, Formlabs, Stratasys and 3D Systems are all included, as is Cody Wilson, who released plans for printing guns last year.
If that name doesn't sound familiar, perhaps one of his most prominent works does: Jiro Dreams of Sushi. The show, Netflix says, debuts next year and will focus on half-a-dozen international chefs

Dispatches From The Front

First of all wanted to say that I LOVE THE SHOW and that i finally started watching Breaking Bad, I'm on season 3 and even though i heard almost all the spoiler zone episodes related to the show i dont feel it has ruined my experience.
I also wanted to share with you the fact that i got 416th place in the Summer Movie Draft and I'm really proud of that cause last year I was in the 500 range. Pertaining to the draft is there any way to find the results of previous drafts I kind of want to see my progress through the past years.
Keep up the great work.

Now that Bezos owns the Washington Post, how long until a live anchored, online WashPo news service appears on TWITCH to compete with the cable news networks?
Also, the Tivo Roamio may be cheap hardware, but they still want $15 a month for the guide. That's $230 for the first year, $180 thereafter. For that money I'd buy the ChannelMaster OTA DVR and pay no monthly fee.

One of your bosses here who just upped his pledge. Just wondering if you guys would put a Donate section on the website so people could donate via PayPal or Bitcoin. I like Patreon and all but sometimes I just feel a need to donate money to stuff that I like. And Cordkillers definitely falls into that category. I see Daily Tech News Show now has a donations page and I plan to use it. Just want Cordkillers to jump on board too.
Cheers guys. Love the show.

Another summer has come and gone. And while fewer and fewer of us are enjoying these warm months (or cold if you live in the southern hemisphere) at the movies, I walk away from this season with a question. How in the hell did a flying turd on a stick like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” end up being the number one movie in the draft? Sure you can explain the math to me all day long, but there is no reason that Michael Bay’s passively racist abomination should be the draft leader. Not only should a just and loving God have denied such an occurrence, but the way the movie draft is set up needs to be drastically changed.
