Posted in Set Top Boxes by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2010

The WebTube HD box from Yonsei might be a good budget version of a Roku box, but you can expect limited abilities. The WebTube HD has just visited the FCC where it was poked and prodded.

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2010

There have been reports focusing on Google TV’s lack of partnerships with major networks, but now Logitech representatives have confirmed that Google is trying to bring the Hulu streaming video service to their new set-top box.

Details are scarce at the moment, but Google is said to be involved in ongoing negotiations with Hulu executives. If the two strike a deal, which is likely, the service will probably be limited to Hulu Plus subscribers. Hulu has already partnered with several hardware companies to bring its streaming service to products like TiVo Premiere and Roku, but none of the set-top boxes provide access to Hulu’s free content.

Netflix may have streaming-only subscriptions next year

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on February 20th, 2009

Netflix may have streaming-only subscriptions next yearNetflix CEO Reed Hastings says that by late this year or in 2010, Netflix might let users get rid of the red envelopes and subscribe just to their streaming service. Reed realizes that in order to maintain their current level of success, it has to “nail” the streaming aspect.

Most of us envision streaming becoming more popular in the coming years. It’s faster cheaper and it’s great for them if they can strong-arm studios into providing new releases for download. There was no talk of pricing, but Netflix has always been pretty fair.

Posted in Xbox 360 by Darrin Olson on July 14th, 2008

Xbox 360 to have Netflix movie streaming built inMicrosoft announced at E3 today that along with a complete UI update coming to the Xbox 360, they will also be offering streaming movies via Netflix through the game console and Xbox Live. We had heard Netflix express interest in this partnership earlier this year and Microsoft says it will come to fruition in “late fall”. The new feature will require users to be subscribers to Netflix and manage their queue from their computer much like they do now, but will add the ability to stream and view the movies through the Xbox 360 game console. To make this even better, any Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get the service for no additional charge.

Basically this means that owners of an Xbox 360 are getting a brand new interface and all the features of a Roku box (Netflix set-top box retailing for $100) for no additional charges, aside the Live subscription fee that any true Xbox fan is paying anyway.
