    Today In Obvious

    Not that I speak from experience. I absolutely did not stay up until the wee hours last night watching an entire season of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Nope. Why would you say that?

  2. New Sailor Moon Will Stream Simultaneously Worldwide This Winter

    i'll just leave this here

    First the bad news. The new Sailor Moon anime that was announced last year will be ready to air this winter, not this summer, as planned. The good news is that the new anime will not air only in Japan. It was announced at the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Event #2 that the new show, which was announced at last year's Anniversary Event, will be available to stream worldwide when it airs, allowing fans in many countries to enjoy more crime fighting and magic from the Sailor Senshi.

  4. Excited to Binge Watch All of Amazon’s Original Shows? Too Bad!

    There's something to be said for losing a weekend watching every episode of a season, but Amazon is banking on a different plan.

    Amazon is diving into the original streaming content pool with its political comedy Alpha House sometime late 2013 or early 2014, but when it does come out it's not going to be coming out all at once, according to executive producer Jonathan Alter. There go your plans for a 10-episode John Goodman marathon. So what is their plan exactly?

  5. The Upcoming Shows That Make Me Glad I Have a Hulu Account

    As I was scrolling through shows on my Hulu account the other day, I noticed that they posted trailers for all their upcoming shows. I took some time to watch them all, and while some were better than others, overall I'm actually pretty pumped about most of them. Here's a quick rundown of the Hulu shows that have me excited.

  6. Amazon Prime Matches Netflix Monthly Plan, Still Offers Everything From Before

    Amazon's really wanting to bolster their Amazon Prime subscriptions, apparently. The annual subscription, which runs $79, wasn't cutting it for them. If you're the type of person that regularly purchases items from the online retailer, the annual account's worth it for the free two-day delivery alone. In addition to that, Amazon Prime also offers a collection of television shows and films that subscribers can watch, like Netflix. Also like Netflix, Amazon Prime's just added a $7.99 monthly plan. That means streaming plus all the other goodies associated with an Amazon Prime account for the same price as just streaming elsewhere.

  7. Dish No Longer Looking to Turn Blockbuster Into Netflix Rival, Might Not Know What to Do With It

    When Blockbuster was snatched up by Dish Network, the plan was to turn the brand into something of a Netflix rival by providing streaming content to mobile devices sold by Dish. Unfortunately, Dish's expectations of federal approval didn't come to fruition, and so that plan initially fizzled and now it looks like they're not going to pursue it further. It looks like Charlie Ergen, founder and chairman of Dish, might not know what exactly to do with Blockbuster now that they have it.

  8. Amazon Prime Instant Video Will Soon Include Most of Netflix’s Newest Films

    These days, Netflix doesn't garner as many new releases as it once could claim. When the streaming service lost Starz, they also lost the ability to show off a good deal of Disney and Sony content. Now it looks like the service will have even less to differentiate itself from Amazon Prime Instant Video, as Amazon has entered into "a multi-year licensing agreement" with Epix -- the same "premium entertainment network" from which Netflix gets a number of its new releases.

  9. Turns Out Only About Half of the U.S. Can Actually Stream Video From Netflix

    the internet is serious business

    If there's an inherent bias in blogging, it's that the blogger and their audience, are necessarily in a place that has a steady internet connection. Don't got an internet connection? You're way less likely to blog, read a blog, comment on a blog, or get into the ideas that regularly sweep the internet. The internet idea that's probably most relevant to this particular news item? That the world is ready for streaming, a la carte television to become the default way that folks get their cable subscriptions delivered to them.

  10. It’s Not Just You: Many People Are Cutting Their Cable Loose In Favor of Streaming (Legal and Otherwise)

    And So It Begins

    If you have found yourself making the decision to dump your cable company and just see what's available online, you are part of a growing TV audience that is moving further and further away from conventional cable. About 1.5 million households canceled their cable subscriptions in 2011, which is a small but significant drop in the cable-viewing audience. Instead, these defectors are moving on to online streaming on sites like Hulu (for now, at least), Netflix, iTunes, and other -- ahem -- less legal venues. Some say it's a direct result of the recession, and cable companies might want to do a little soul-searching to retain -- and regain -- their audiences.
