Cable companies need to be scared, because cordcutting is here to stay

Cable vs streaming 2017

For a few years, cable companies saw cordcutting as another millenial fad that would go the way of the hoverboard. But Netflix's dramatic growth was just the start.

Here are Netflix’s most popular shows for every country

netflix most popular shows

Everyone has their own unique habits when it comes to Netflix. Personally, I binge watch House of Cards within a week of each new season, try to check out every new comedy special, and generally fall asleep at night to Futurama or Forensic Files. To you, that might not sound appealing, but it's my routine and I like it. Because TV habits are so uniquely personal, you might not think compiling the entire world's Netflix preferences into a giant popularity list would make much sense, but that's just what the web gurus at HSI did, and it proves to be an interesting glimpse into how diverse the world's TV tastes really are.

Twitch makes cheering exchange rate clear: one penny per bit for streamers

Twitch Feature Twitch announced Monday that users would soon be able to “cheer” their favorite streamers — in the form of expendable emoji purchasable with real-world money. Details were rather scarce so I pressed them — and then, almost certainly unrelated to that, the company provided more details. (It’s a penny per bit.) Read More

Comment: It would be more surprising if Apple had not discussed a post-iTunes world

While Apple has denied a report that it was planning to stop selling music downloads in either two years or 3-4 years, the denial to Re/code was somewhat vague.

Apple rep Tom Neumayr wouldn’t expand on [the ‘not true’] comment, except to make it clear that he was responding to both timelines proposed in today’s story from Digital Music News.

And really, nobody should be surprised if the broader report is true: that Apple has discussed how and when it might exit the music download business …

Review: Definitive W7 + Play-Fi, hands on with an AirPlay competitor for home wireless music

I love the concept of streaming music around the home. There are a lot of great wireless Bluetooth speakers for wireless music on the move, but it’s still unclear what to choose for a static home environment. Apple’s answer is AirPlay, but it has flaws: no multi-room support from iOS devices, limited adoption by speaker manufacturers, and spotty reliability at best.

I’ve been trying an AirPlay alternative, called Play-Fi, which is a competing industry technology for home Wi-Fi music streaming from DTS. Specifically, I tested the Definitive W7 wireless speaker which integrates Play-Fi. Read on for my review  ….
