How Apple could become a TV powerhouse in one fell swoop

Apple Time Warner Merger Rumor

We've known for a long time that Apple has been trying to negotiate a deal with content providers for launching its own over-the-top TV streaming service. We also know that these content providers have been stubborn about licensing their shows to Apple and have so far thwarted Apple's plans to compete directly with Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. This is why I was particularly intrigued to see this morning's New York Post report claiming that Apple is keeping its eye on Time Warner, Inc. as a potential acquisition target. In short, buying up Time Warner would solve a lot of Apple's TV problems in one fell swoop.

HBO is close to renewing ‘Game of Thrones’ for seasons 7 and 8

HBO Game Of Thrones Season 7 8

The sixth season of Game of Thrones is coming in late April, but what happens after that? Given that the show is going to start differing significantly from the framework set out by author George R.R. Martin in his books, it will have significant freedom to go its own direction even though it will still follow a very rough outline that Martin has provided. And now it looks like the creative team behind the Game of Thrones TV series think they have enough good material to last at least another two seasons, a new report from The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

Every new movie coming to HBO NOW and HBO GO in January 2016

HBO TV Shows Movies

With Netflix garnering the lion's share of headlines these days, it's easy to forget that HBO's own streaming services are equally compelling and addictive. Bolstered by an extensive selection of movies and an incredibly vibrant library of original programming, the content available to HBO subscribers is arguably a tad richer than what's available elsewhere.

‘The Leftovers’ is following in the footsteps of ‘Lost,’ and I couldn’t be happier

The Leftovers Season 2 Review

After walking away from the first season of The Leftovers disappointed and dumbfounded, I wasn't sure I'd return for season 2. It was so mired in melancholy that all I wanted to do when I finished an episode was crawl into bed and stare at the ceiling. The emotional range of the show stretched from "sad" to "devastating."

It was just a really tough watch.

But in season 2, writer and creator Damon Lindelof seems to have allowed his fictional world to develop a sense of humor, and that's all it took to turn The Leftovers into appointment television.

Golden Globe nominations reveal network TV is becoming irrelevant

Golden Globe Nominations Netflix HBO Hulu Amazon

Traditional network television is getting more and more irrelevant by the day. And it's not just that premium cable stations like HBO and Showtime are sucking up all the acclaim anymore -- now upstart online streaming services like Netflix, Amazon and even Hulu are stealing network TV's thunder as well. Nowhere has this been more evident than this year's TV nominations for the Golden Globes.

HBO vs Netflix: Who has the best original TV programming?

HBO Vs Netflix Vs Showtime

Not too long ago, TV fans only had to worry about keeping up with a few select shows at a time. Whether you were interested in staying up to date with The Sopranos or checking out what John Locke was up to on LOST, doing so was always manageable.

Today, the TV landscape is markedly different. While ordinarily a cliche, the phrase "too many shows, too little time" is undoubtedly appropriate in 2015. These days, it's practically impossible to keep up with the onslaught of new shows constantly being released, not to mention a long list of retired shows that are now easy to binge watch thanks to the magic of online streaming.

Can HBO keep up? Netflix will spend $5 billion on content in 2016

Netflix Vs HBO

We always like to talk about how Netflix is 'doubling down' on original content, but truth be told, that doesn't really capture the full scope of Netflix's programming objectives. Netflix doesn't just want to increase the breadth of its original content, it wants to completely dominate the premium original content space and completely dethrone HBO in the process.
