  1. https://consumerist.com/2016/09/13/netflix-wants-the-fcc-to-do-something-about-pesky-data-caps/ Did you guys hear about this item yet? Apparently Netflix is trying to get rid of the data caps some ISPs have been imposing on their customers (AT&T and Xfinity/Comcast are just a few examples). Honestly, it's not hard to see why they're doing this; Netflix is now offering 4K movies and wants to continue doing so, but streaming something like that takes up a ton of data. Hence, why those data caps have to go. I'm not entirely sure it's that simple, though. While I'm sure AT&T and Comcast don't really need to cap data at 200GB a month, I'm sure they do have some limit as to what they can handle. On the other hand, I believe the number was 10% or less of current customers actually use more than that amount, so perhaps the high data usage wouldn't affect everyone's internet overall too much. At any rate, I think it's probably a good idea to regulate how much control the ISPs have in limiting bandwidth usage each month because it is (or will be) holding back what we can do as far as 4K streaming and other things go. What do you guys think? Are you glad Netflix is on the frontlines to help data caps disappear? Or do you think it's too early to expect something like this to happen at this time?

    Netflix Recommendation Thread

    I've been really getting into Netflix as of recently (thanks mostly to Daredevil), so I'm now trying to see what else is really good to watch on there. Anyone have any recommendations? Right now, I'm catching up on Star Wars: The Clone Wars (starting from Season 1), and I definitely plan to check out House of Cards at some point. If you have any recommendations for good shows, post them here and I'll keep track of them here so we'll have a running list and all. Netflix Recommended Shows to Watch (by the GP community) Daredevil Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Seasons 1-6) House of Cards Orange Is The New Black The Walking Dead Breaking Bad Graceland Archer House Royal Pains Sherlock Psyche Arrow Video Game Highschool

    So, seeing as a few of us around here are getting pretty heavily into super hero related shows, I figured I'd make a topic about one more. That is, Daredevil, Marvel's triumphant return to TV- sorta. Well, TV sized media and such. So, let's uh, chat or something. Did you guys see it yet, plan on watching it soon? If you saw it already, what did you like and didn't like? For me-

    Redbox Instant Coming to Xbox Live

    If you've got an Xbox 360 and like to play around with the various apps available through Xbox Live, you may have tried out the popular video-streaming Netflix or Hulu apps at some point (or at all points, you couch potatoes). Well, if those haven't satisfied you, maybe Verizon's new Redbox Instant service will. This new video-streaming service from the makers of those things you see in Wal-Marts will be available sometime in the undetermined future through Xbox Live. Redbox Instant is in a public beta at the moment (you can try it our HERE), and according to Microsoft spokesman Major Nelson, after signing up for the service, an email will be sent to you with a code that will allow you access to the Xbox Live Redbox Instant app in the "coming days." Just like the similar Netflix Instant service, Redbox Instant allows you to access a catalog of movie streams on-demand, as well as the Redbox disc rental kiosks (aka those things you see at Wal-Marts). There are two plans: $8 a month for the DVD plan or $9 a month for the Blu-ray plan. For both plans, you will get unlimited access to streaming movies and up to four one-night rentals of DVDS or Blu-rays at any Redbox machine. Do you use Redbox? Will you be using this app whenever it is released?
  5. Have you got a Wii U with you on this Thanksgiving holiday? If so, you may want to use it for things other than gaming. Today it was announced that both the Youtube and Amazon Instant Video applications now work with the system, following the Netflix app from launch. These are all getting set up before Wii U TVii launches sometime in December. What does the Youtube app bring to the system? In comparison to other Youtube apps elsewhere, all relevant video info will display on the GamePad during playback. You may also use the touch screen on it to key in search terms, or simply browse through your subscriptions (if logged in). Videos can be viewed at up to 1080p resolution as well. Amazon's Instant Video app is similar when it comes to searching. You will also perform searches through the GamePad in order to find what you want. However, unlike Youtube, you can stream the video content onto the GamePad directly. Some new features included in this app over those available on other devices is that there are now ways to set up parental controls or search specifically for family-friendly entertainment. Both applications are free and available to download now through the Wii U menu. Just expect that there may be a few bugs to work out between now and TVii's launch.

    Wii U TVii Not Available at Launch

    Last week we were all let in on the fact that Wii U users would have to download a day one patch to use various online features of the system. However, not all of the features will be ready when early adopters pick up their system. One such feature is Nintendo TVii. Since many gamers already stream video content through other devices it's not likely to break any hearts, but worth noting all the same. If you are unsure as what exactly TVii is then check out Nintendo's summary: "In December, Nintendo will activate this unique application that will transform how people find, watch and engage with TV shows, movies and sports. Nintendo TVii makes watching TV simple and fun by bringing together a program guide, remote control and social interaction into one, seamless second-screen experience on the GamePad." Thankfully, they also have answered many questions that come up time and time again regarding this service. It works with existing cable and satellite television providers and is also free to use. Beyond that, TVii interfaces with Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant accounts as well if you have any of them. Beyond watching shows you can also comment on them via Facebook, Twitter, or Nintendo's own Miiverse. Finally, each Wii U user can customize TVii so it shows shows of interest to them. They just have to wait until sometime in December to test it out. Does Nintendo TVii seem interesting to you or are you happy with current methods for watching content?

    Wii U's Nintendo TVii Detailed

    What on Earth is Nintendo TVii, and why is it written that way? Well, the second question is easy to answer by simply saying it's Nintendo being Nintendo. Now, what is it all about? This "third pillar" of the Wii U system was discussed at length during today's Wii U preview event so here's what you need to know. Nintendo TVii is a new initiative that will run on the GamePad. It is meant to be a new way to interface with you television media and watching habits. When booted up, the application lists a few basic buttons: TV, movies, sports, and search. For TV, you will be able to see all the upcoming listings for shows (for the sources available to you). From this, you will be able to click buttons that allow you to "tune in" to the station where the show is on, or queue it up to be recorded or played from a DVR device (only Tivo was mentioned). Apparently "moments" and descriptions of live shows will also be vieweable. This means that brief summations of what's happening and screenshots for an episode will be stored. It's not known what shows will get this feature, as certainly not everything could. This is all basically remote control functionality, not streaming TV. For movies, it was announced that you'll be able to interface it with your existing Netflix, Hulu Plus, or Amazon Instant Video accounts. When looking up movies you will be able to quickly check out reviews and information from IMDB, as well as watch trailers on the GamePad itself. Again, it will only show items from sources that you actually are subscribed to. Once you're ready to watch something then all you need to do is select it and start watching on your TV. With the sports button you gain access to a whole lot of information. The main screen shows off the current scores for games. Your favorite teams will show up as the first scores too, so you don't even have to search. Once a game is on you'll be able to use the GamePad to pull up all kinds of statistics on the current game and players. Sports also have the same feature of TV shows where moments will be recorded if you want to catch up on a play you missed. To help make the best of Nintendo TVii, players signed in with their personal Miis will have all information tailored to them. Shows and movies will be recommended based off their set preferences. If you don't want to be profiled, you can choose a setting to not log in when using TVii. If you're into social networking, you can also set up your Twitter and Facebook accounts to update statuses while checking out shows and movies. Finally, all of the features of this application are free to use. Does Nintendo TVii seem appealing or is it a glorified remote control?
