Amazon Instant Video app now available on (some) Google TV devices

Amazon Instant Video now available on some Google TV devices

Hot on the heels of making it available on the iPhone and iPod touch, Amazon’s now bringing a native app for its Instant Video service to Mountain View’s TV platform. It’s always been accessible via the web browser, although navigating the site via remote was painful and the Flash video quality suffered. Granted, the on-demand application doesn’t appear to be compatible with some devices at the moment, with a few folks pointing out that they are not seeing it be friendly with their particular Google TV-powered set-top box — including ones such as the Logitech Revue and the (much) newer Vizio Co-Star. Here’s to hoping the giant e-tailer makes Instant Video friendly with more Google TVs pretty soon — according to Google, it’s only available on LG TVs so far, since they’ve received the latest v3 updates already.

Ouya dev consoles shipping to backers on December 28th, SDK available same day

Ouya dev consoles shipping to backers on December 28th, SDK available same day

Developer kits for the Ouya were given a ship date of December 28th today, alongside news that the system’s software development kit (“ODK”) will be available that same day. In case it wasn’t already clear how small the Android-powered console is, the folks at Ouya included the picture you see above to further illustrate that point — the thing is really small. Ouya expects the dev kits to get into backers’ hands “within a couple days” of the 28th. Final units are still intended to ship some time in March 2013, though no final date is available just yet.

How different are these dev units from the final run, though? Not that different, we’d guess, considering the company’s continued promise that “every Ouya will be a dev console.” The only hint given of their difference is a note in today’s update calling them, “pretty special.” Beyond just getting a jump on game development with the Ouya in mind, dev unit buyers will also be the first to try out Jelly Bean gaming. Of course, if you’re a dev unit-level backer and you’d like to share your thoughts with us, we’re all ears.

Netflix app for Windows 8 now available for download

Netflix app for Windows 8 now available for download

Microsoft confirmed some time ago that a Netflix app would be available for Windows 8, and it turns out it’s available well before the big October 26th launch date. Netflix announced today that the app is now available for download from the Windows Store for those who’ve already upgraded to an early version of the OS. Expectedly, the app matches the overall style of Windows 8, and Netflix says that it’s also made the app more efficient to cut down on both CPU and battery usage. It’s quick to point out that this is only the first version of the app, though, noting that it has “more updates and ideas in the pipeline for later this fall.”

GeeXBox 3.0 now available, XBMC 11 calling the shots

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

GeeXBox 30 now available, XBMC 11 calling the shots

Attention do-it-yourself home theater fans, GeeXboX 3.0 is now available. Primarily based off of XBMC 11, the latest software bump for this long-running Linux distro introduces a few nifty features, such as: PVR support for DVB-T (watch and record live TV), full HD video for PandaBoard systems, full HD support for CuBox and improved HDD installation. A year in the making, GeeXbox 3.0 weighs in at a hefty 140MB, nearly double the size of the platform’s last official release. In addition to its new bells and whistles, version 3.0 has “preliminary” Raspberry Pi support baked into its development tree. So, if you’ve been plotting like Wile E. Coyote to build your next HTPC, then you may want to give this ISO a download.

Update: Having trouble accessing the GeeXboX site directly? It seems to be running slowly at the moment, but you can also grab the latest ISO from Softpedia at the link below.

Sky Sports TV app for Android now available, brings live events to the UK and Ireland

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

Sky Sports TV app for Android now available, gives you all the football soccer you need

Not to be outdone by The Worldwide Leader in Sports, Sky’s just released its own application to keep football enthusiasts entertained while on the go — at least Premier League fans using Android slabs. Unlike the ESPN app, however, Sky Sports is charging £5 (around ) per month for its offering, though it will — with the help of ESPN, no less — stream over 100 EPL matches live, so you’re not limited to only highlights and previews. That being said, Sky Sports TV also lets UK and Ireland folks watch other sporting events, including F1 races, PGA Golf and tennis events like the US Open. The bad news is the app currently doesn’t support Jelly Bean-loaded devices, which, for now, will most likely only affect a tiny section of Mountain View’s user base — if that’s not you, though, the link to download is down below.

‘Just for Kids’ now available on the Xbox 360: Go, Netflix, Go!

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

'Just for Kids' now available on Xbox 360 Go, Netflix, Go!

Late last year, Netflix kicked off its plans to specifically cater the young crowd with its ‘Just for Kids’ entertainment section — which, at that point, was nothing but a mere experiment. Still, the toons-filled project quickly found success amongst subscribers, and shortly thereafter it had made its way onto other platforms like the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3. Today, the Xbox 360′s the latest gaming system to join the fun, as Netflix’s announced the kids-only section is now available on Microsoft’s popular console. Obviously you’ll need both a Netflix and Xbox Live account prior to entering the hub and start streaming some Go, Diego, Go! — otherwise all that’s left to do is download the updated app before you (or your kids) can check it out.

FiOS TV app for Samsung HDTVs and Blu-ray players available with 26 live channels (video)

FiOS TV app for Samsung HDTVs and Bluray players available with 26 live channels video

While we saw cable and IPTV providers promising pay-TV channels without a box (at least in that room) at CES 2012 we were skeptical, since we’ve been burned before, but now Verizon FiOS TV has followed up the launch of its app on Xbox 360 by quietly releasing the version for Samsung’s Smart TVs and Blu-ray players. Like the Xbox 360 app of course, you will need to already be a Verizon FiOS TV customer, so if it’s not in your area you’re still out of luck. One of our readers noticed the app pop up on his 2011 model Samsung HDTV, and Verizon just posted a quick video trailer (embedded after the break) previewing the app’s ability to tune into 26 live channels, as well as FlexView video on-demand content. Tipster ProphetBeal noted the channel changes seemed quicker than on the Xbox 360 app, although they were otherwise very similar. There’s a few more screens awaiting you at the source link, as well as a list of compatible devices.

[Thanks, ProphetBeal]

XBMC for Android app revealed; source code available now, beta APKs soon (video)

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Surprise surprise, after popping up on the iPad last year, XBMC developers revealed tonight that they’ve created a version of the media center that runs as an Android app. Currently the team has it stable on the Pivos XIOS DS set-top box, and posted a video (embedded after the break) showing it running on a phone and a tablet. Of course, the different varieties of Android hardware audio and video decoding is mostly a software only affair, but universal hardware decoding is in the plan. The truly dedicated can dig up the source code right now, but APKs for beta testers are promised “in the coming weeks.” According to the blog post, it currently includes a community member created touch oriented skin and hopes to have more available before any version of this hits Google Play officially.

UK 2012 Olympics Super Hi-Vision tickets are available, grab a seat for some Ultra HDTV

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

If you’re a UK resident, missed out a ticket to the London 2012 Olympics and find the extensive home and mobile coverage to be lacking in pixels have no fear — free tickets are available for Super Hi-Vision screenings at three locations. While certain days and times are already fully booked, you can still get one of the first public glimpses of NHK’s 8K Ultra HDTV technology at the BBC Radio Theatre, BBC Scotland (Glasgow) and the National Media Musuem in Bradford (other viewing locations are in Japan and Washington D.C.) Before the games get started, the Radio Theater is screening a London Prepares promo from July 23rd to the 28th. During the games (July 28th – August 12th) all will have highlights of the previous day’s action from the Aquatic Centre, Olympic Stadium, Velodrome, and Basketball Arena plus clips of the Opening Ceremony. The lone live feed is scheduled for Sunday July 29th, from the Aquatics Centre. Sure, you could be paying a fortune for scalped passes to be in the house when Usain Bolt, Ryan Lochte or Michael Phelps are doing their thing, or you could be enjoying 33MP video and 22.2 channel surround sound in one of the custom setups TechRadar previewed in March. Your choice.

DirecTV DVRs available in over 100 hotels

On-demand TV viewing continues to secrete itself into the fabric of your live and now its squeezing more viewing hours out of you from hotel rooms across the US. DirecTV‘s HD DVRs pack the typical programming guide and recording options, plus the ability for hotels to add up to 50 channels of their own content to the recorders — meaning plenty of hotel infomercials dying to be paused, live. DirecTV has now officially launched its Residential Experience, bringing its DVR technology to 110 hotels across the country. Fortunately, the systems also include the hygienic touch of an anti-microbial remote. Classy.

BBC Olympic coverage to include 24 live HD channels available on TVs, phones, PCs and tablets

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

BBC Olympic coverage to include 24 live HD channels available on TVs, phones, PCs and tabletsThe BBC has home field advantage for the 2012 Olympics, and it’s revealing more details about how it plans to broadcast over 2,500 hours of live sports on 24 channels that viewers can watch pretty much anywhere. Director Roger Mosey indicates it started out as a way to watch all 24 streams on the BBC Sport website via PCs or mobile devices, but has been expanded to offer the streams through television operators as well. So far Sky and Freesat are confirmed in, while Freeview users can punch up two extra channels via the program guide or red button. On this side of the Atlantic, the most recent news is that NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus) will be right alongside the broadcast NBC channel (which has its own streaming plans in combination with YouTube) with a “record” amount of Olympic coverage. It could air as many as 300 hours of content from London, as well as some of the Olympic Trials. Hit the source links below for more details, we’ll probably be hearing much more before the Olympic Flame makes its way to the stadium July 27th.

Seas0npass tethered jailbreak now available for Apple TV 2s running iOS 5.1

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Apple TV owners no longer need to choose between jailbreaking or running the recently released iOS 5.1 update, now that FireCore has pushed new versions of Seas0nPass (0.8.3) and aTV Flash (black) (1.4.1). Currently, the jailbreak is still tethered, so if you should have to reboot your hockey puck, connecting it to a computer and repeating the process will be required. Unfortunately, the tools won’t work on the new third generation Apple TVs yet, and even on supported hardware some plugins, like Plex and XBMC, are still listed as not working. All the details can be found beyond the source link for both the free Seas0nPass jailbreaker and .95 aTV Flash that adds more functionality.

Netflix Android app adds onscreen volume slider, Facebook integration (where available)

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Now that Netflix is available on most Android devices and even sporting a fresh tablet interface, what’s there left to tweak? Plenty actually, and the company just pushed a new 1.7 version of the app that adds Facebook sharing and discovery in the countries where those features are enabled (read: not the US). Also new is a software volume slider for tablet users as shown above by Android Community, as well as tweaks for AV sync and resolution of some other tablet incompatibilities. HD streaming support for tablets will have to wait for another day, but for now users can grab the latest version from the Android Market at the link below.

SlingPlayer for Kindle Fire available tomorrow for $30 in the Amazon Appstore

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Though Sling Media has long been offering apps for Android phones and tablets, Kindle Fire owners have until now been left out in the cold (you know, the whole lack-of-Android-Market-access thing). Tomorrow, though, Fire owners can get their fill of live and recorded TV when the SlingPlayer app goes on sale in the Amazon Appstore. With a price of .99, you’ll pay the same as you would for any of Sling’s other mobile apps, and as far as we could tell when we first got hands-on at CES, the interface is about the same as what you’d get on an Android handset. In case you need a refresher, we’ve got a gallery of images below, and we’ve posted that source link early, though you’ll have to twiddle your thumbs until tomorrow when you can officially get your download on.

Time Warner Cable’s tablet app available for Android, live TV streaming still iPad only

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

As promised, a Honeycomb compatible version of Time Warner Cable’s tablet app has arrived before the return of the NBA. Dubbed TWC TV in its Android iteration, v1.0 includes an integrated guide, the ability to act as a remote control, search TV listings, and schedule DVR recordings. So far it’s only promised to operate on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Xoom tablets, but the notes indicate it should scale to whatever Honeycomb slate you happen to have handy at the moment. The marquee live TV streaming feature is still on hold waiting for the release of Ice Cream Sandwich, but if what you need is a couch companion instead of a kitchen / bathroom TV screen it’s ready to go. Check out the Time Warner blog for more notes or just hit the Android Market link below to download it yourself.

You can find all the requisite details and downloads at the source link, though you’ll have to register with the site to do so. It’s also worth noting that the update is still in a buggy, beta phase of development, and that once you upgrade, you may not be able to go back.

HDHomeRun Prime TV tuner passes CableLabs tests, available for preorder on Amazon

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

We’ve been waiting for SiliconDust’s CableCARD-compatible HDHomeRun Prime for a little over a year and it seems finally ready to bring its triple tuner TV magic home, having gained CableLabs certification as of April 28th and subsequently showing up for preorder on Amazon. While this is mostly big news for Windows Media Center fans who need a new way to get premium channels on their box it also supports other DVR software like MythTV on Copy Freely-marked content. HTPC builders don’t have to choose between this HDHR3-CC and the (suddenly in abundant supply) Ceton InfiniTV 4 just yet, since the listing has no shipping date and the last we’d heard from SiliconDust was that preorders would ship around 30 days after it completed certification. Check out our hands-on impressions from CES a few months ago if you’re on the fence, but right now all that’s standing between you and that grey box is a little bit of time… and 7.

Google TV Remote app now available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

After debuting it on the Android platform in December, the Google TV team has finally released a version of the official remote app for iOS. The interface and features appear to be the same with one key difference, currently the iOS version doesn’t support sharing web pages from mobile to the screen, but everything else like voice search is here and accounted for. It’s good for the team to finally get the long promised app out, but more interesting now is the question of which features will be included in the second generation of Google TV hardware once manufacturers like Vizio, Toshiba and Samsung join the mix, hopefully putting the two handed/keyboard kludginess of the past behind us. Check after the break for the YouTube demo, or just grab the free app via the QR code on the official blog or iTunes.

TWCable TV app for iPad now available, but Dish has something to say about being ‘first with live streaming’

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Announced yesterday, Time Warner Cable’s iPad app arrived via iTunes as scheduled this morning to meet the rest of the pay-TV provider apps sporting its one key feature: live TV streaming of 32 cable channels. Speaking of the competition, Dish Network had something to say about that claim to fame as first with live streaming, since it’s already offered an app with Sling-powered streaming from its boxes. Of course, they’re not exactly the same approach since TWCable TV doesn’t potentially require any add-on hardware or tie up a tuner on your set-top box, while the Dish approach enjoys the ability of working beyond the reach of your home’s WiFi, and can tune in to any channel. Other than requiring both cable TV and high speed internet service those two last notes may be the key weaknesses to this strategy; while the TWCable TV app advertises itself as “another TV screen,” it’s one with significant limits and currently lags behind the competition by lacking features like remote control or DVR scheduling. Check after the break for Dish’s press release or just click through to iTunes to nab the app yourself.

KinEmote: Kinect gesture control for Boxee and XBMC media centers now available (video)

Friday, December 24th, 2010

We’ve seen plenty of Kinect hacks over the last few weeks — trouble is, beyond the initial wow factor they’re just not very useful on a daily basis. That situation just changed, however, with the release of KinEmote, a free public beta that lets Windows users navigate XBMC and Boxee menus using nothing but hand gestures. Better yet, the software is built around OpenNI and NITE middleware from PrimeSense, the company behind the Project Natal reference gear. It certainly looks impressive in the video after the break. Good enough that we suspect many of you will hit up the source link below instead of finishing up your last minute holiday shopping — hey, Santa can wait, this is progress!

Comcast Yule Log VOD now available in 3D

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

We’ve never known quite what to make of all the Yule Log content that pops up around this time of the year, but after debuting in HD and on video on demand, for 2010 where else could the ol’ burning piece of wood go other than into 3D? Comcast users should be able to find it in their VOD under Top Picks/Holiday Films and we wouldn’t be surprised if other providers have something similar as well.

Roku makes hardware and software available to license, embedded TVs can’t be far out

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Aw, suki suki now! Roku — the guys responsible for taking over your living room — just announced that it’s making its hardware and software platform available to license. At first glance, you may assume this means little to nothing for consumers, but you’re (hopefully) mistaken. If you’ll recall, the Roku XD was rebranded in order to slip into Netgear’s vast sales channels, but the software part of this equation has our interest very much piqued. We’ve already seen Vudu’s software baked into a number of HDTVs, and we’re envisioning a future filled with world peace, In-N-Out for all and Roku-embedded television sets. We’ll take two outta three if we have to, though.

Toshiba BDX2500, BDX2700 Blu-ray players now available

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

The world no longer has to wait, two of Toshiba’s second generation Blu-ray players are now on sale. The BDX2500 and BDX2700 are differentiated by the former’s lack of integrated WiFi and a few external design cues, but both are packing VUDU, Netflix and Blockbuster On Demand for those who don’t mind switching it up for discless movie watching on occasion. The 3D capable BDX3000 is still waiting in the wings, but these should provide some competition for LG’s Blu-ray boxes for now. The MSRP on the BDX2500 has dropped to 9, while the BDX2700 is still 9, which should make them a more compelling option than last year’s initial BDX2000 effort.
