OUYA updates backers about launch titles, day-one software update

OUYA updates backers about what to expect, including launch titles and a dayone update

The OUYA Tegra 3-powered Android game console is having quite a day, but now that it’s shipping, CEO Julie Uhrman is informing early recipients of what to expect when they open the packaging. According to an email sent out to Kickstarter backers this evening, their new box will have a software update required as soon as it’s plugged in. After the Wii U we hope this isn’t a trend (but fear it is) although the Ouya promises to take only seconds or at most minutes to complete. Also detailed are the 104 games already available from the 8,000 registered developers including Beast Boxing Turbo, Stalagflight, and Knightmare Tower, plus entertainment apps like XBMC and Flixster. The games are all free to try out, but a credit/debit card is required upfront.

We’ve already offered our opinion of the shipping hardware after a quick hands-on, although backers are encouraged to contribute their own during the preview period before it officially launches. To that end, the company is planning a Reddit AMA next month and will have its own forums available for feedback soon. Until then, you can get the rest of the info directly at the source link below.

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Governmentback ovie streaming partnership coming to China in Q4, brining Paramount movies with itGovernment-helmed China Movie Channel’s site M1905 announced this week that it’s joining forces with Jiaflix — a consortium comprised of Hollywood-types like former Columbia exec Sid Ganis — to launch a movie streaming service in China. The still unnamed offering is set to stream both Chinese and international films, including a deal struck with Paramount that will bring the studio’s back catalog and future releases to the service. The fruits of the partnership are set to launch in the fourth quarter of this year, bringing streaming to a number of platforms, including smartphone and tablets. Jiaflix and China Movie Channel added that they’ll have a plan in place to combat potential piracy through the service, but have yet to spell out what such a plan of action would entail.

Fox and Universal titles blocked from Apple TV’s iCloud, HBO is the culprit

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Another season, another reason for Cupertino to update its major product lines (hello new iPad!) and one particular hobby: Apple TV. The revamped box, now imbued with an ability to stream videos in 1080p, will allow users to download previous iTunes store purchases from the iCloud. But before you dive in and revisit those cinematic gems in full HD, bear in mind not every studio is on board. According to All Things D, titles from Fox and Universal’s libraries won’t be made available as they’re currently locked within an exclusive release window with HBO. For the pay cabler’s part, a company exec has hinted that a resolution could be forthcoming, although no specific time frame for that peace-making play was specified. It’s a down note to an otherwise exciting day in the land of Cupertino, but hey, at least we still have that price point to keep our frustrations in check.

HBO GO expands to 1400 titles, still doesn’t check if you subscribe

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Although it still isn’t very interesting to surround sound snobs, HBO GO is streaming more content then ever into your home. And by your home, we mean those who happen to subscribe to Comcast, Cox, FiOS or AT&T U-Verse — oddly, Time Warner cable isn’t listed, sure they aren’t the same company anymore, but still. Now according to the release, the number of offerings is up to 1400 movies, shows and documentaries and it requires that you actually subscribe to HBO. What is odd is that just like the first time we tried it, we are able to watch all the programming via any internet connection using our provider user ID even though we haven’t subscribed to HBO in years. We’re still wondering, with you, how long it’ll be until we can subscribe to this without actually paying for the rest of cable TV, but for now at least, it is the status quo.

Six major studios to distribute UltraViolet titles by mid year, hardware to come later

Thursday, January 6th, 2011
UltraViloet founders

Some days our dream of being able to watch anything, anywhere, anytime, and on any screen seems like it’ll never happen, but other days are like today. Yes, today every major studio, except Disney, announced that it would start distributing movies that will work with any UltraViolet devices, software or services. We learned on the Engadget HD podcast that this means that if you buy a movie one way (DVD, VOD, hotel PPV, whatever) you can view it on just about any other without paying again. PC software and updates for existing devices are expected to start rolling out later this year — so much for launching in 2010 — but we’ll have to wait for CES next year to learn about all our gadgets that can’t, or won’t, be updated. Of course the dream will only come true if everyone and everything agrees to play, and while we’re a long way away from finding out if our media consumption fantasy will ever come true, the list of 60 companies that have already pledged their allegiance is a who’s who among media and electronics giants.
