All the streaming content of the cable channel Epix is reportedly free to Apple users until May 2. Original shows like Pennyworth and Godfather of Harlem as well a wide selection of movies are available from Epix through the Apple TV app.
One of the few consolations of being cooped up is the time it gives us to catch up on streaming content. But reality TV and movies can only keep us busy for so long before our brains get hungry. With access to more than 2,000 documentaries, CuriosityStream offers some food for thought.
Fans of the Tablo over-the-air DVR can look forward to its commercial skip feature coming to the iOS and Android apps. This will allow Tablo users to record shows off their local airwaves, then watch them on their phone or tablet without ads.
There’s no shortage of streaming video content to consume. But on most platforms, compared to TV shows and popular movies, there’s a shortage of quality educational and documentary content. To deliver the goods, Discovery Communications founder John Hendricks launched CuriosityStream.
It’s rare that the take-home message from an Apple keynote is, “Wow, that’s far more affordable than I expected.” But that’s exactly the reaction Apple prompted when it revealed the $5-a-month price tag for its new Apple TV+ streaming service.
In one fell swoop, Apple just threw down the gauntlet to its streaming rivals. Your move, Netflix!
When it debuts this fall, Apple’s streaming video service will reportedly let viewers download episodes of shows to be watched without taking up their mobile data. Or even viewed when completely offline.
It’s not surprising — many rival services offer this capability. Today’s unconfirmed report is just evidence that Apple TV+ will have this feature too.
A Netflix subscription that costs less than $3 a month sounds like a dream come true, but there are some caveats. Video can only be streamed to a single iPhone, iPad or other mobile device, and that device has to be in India.
This super-low tier was created to appeal to the huge potential market in that country.
There’s so much to learn about the world around us. So when you sit down to watch Netflix, keep in mind you could be streaming content that informs as well as entertains — and at a small fraction of the price.
The already crowded market for streaming video services is getting a little more so. WarnerMedia just unveiled HBO Max, which will include original programs as well as shows created for The WB like Batwoman. Most notably, this will be the only place to watch Friends re-runs.
It will face competition from Apple TV+, Disney+, Netflix and many more.
