Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt’s a new age for watching TV. Netflix, Amazon and Hulu have been growing while premium TV channels like HBO, Showtime, and Starz sat behind cable contracts. Last year the premium channels started to break free and offered TV and movie content without the cable subscription. You can watch on your Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, XBox One, PC, Mac, and other devices, ultimately saving you more and possibly cutting your cable. Let’s look at some ways you can get these services. **Note: prices and offers can change at any time.** HBO Now through the App In order to subscribe, you need a provider. Companies like Roku, Apple, Google Play, XBox Store and Amazon can act as the provider over your cable company. Once you get the HBO Now app, simply choose which method you want to subscribe.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSLG has entered the touchscreen realm with their new LG Pentouch technology. The concept is to connect to your TV and computer. Pentouch is a box that connects to PC and the TV. Working with Wi-Fi, it communicates back and forth so what you touch will be relayed to the TV. It can turn the TV into a markup board, but it also can make for some interactive TV. Of course, if you have apps on your TV, you would be able to control them better. But editing documents, running Powerpoint presentations and more are a great advantage. LG on Amazon Pentouch technology is expected in early spring. No price points yet.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIn this world of over-the-top television, there are a lot of different choices. If your TV does not have a “smart” feature, you end up having to purchase a third-party solution. And with many boxes to choose from, it’s a tough decision at times. However, Roku is working to make that decision very straightforward. At CES, Roku debuted their Roku streaming stick. Ed from Roku joins Todd in showing off this little dongle that connects up to your HDMI port on your TV. Since the Roku stick plugs directly into the HDMI port, there is no need for extra cables, or even a power cable. Therefore, if you have your TV mounted to a wall, there are no extra ugly cables to go with it. Further, this new Roku connects wirelessly (just like the previous versions), so you can stream your...

I get many USB drives. Most of them get put to the side. Only a couple I end up taking with me. One in particular is the Verbatim Tuff N Tiny drives. It’s small and fits on my keychain. But I may trade up for this one. It’s called the Store n Stay. The drive is the size of a dime and the best part is it could stay in your computer. It can also be put into your car’s USB port and hold four to six albums. You can also plug it into a printer, the side of a TV or even a Roku player with your family pictures. “The low-profile, snag-free design makes it the optimal USB flash drive choice for laptop users who want the ability to transfer, store and share their favorite files on impulse,” said Mark Rogers, Verbatim Product Manager, Flash Memory. “It’s meant...
Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Connecting your computer to your TV has never been so easy. Remember the days where you couldn’t even get a simple headphone jack from your CRT TV? Connecting your DVR, Roku, PC and more to the TV is as straightforward as connecting to the HDMI port. Yet the TV is now so thin it sets on your wall and your computer is not even close to it. You don’t want to run a long cable across the room to watch your movies via DVD and control the system. That is why we have wireless USB to HDMI. Using a simple dongle, you connect one machine to the TV. No wires, no hassles. Warpia has created a wireless USB to HDMI controller called StreamHD. Best part – If you have Windows 7 or Mac OSX, you can connect the TV dock...
