Bought an Apple TV 4K 32GB

I finally bought an Apple TV 4K 32GB, probably just months before they will release a new model of course. :D It took me nearly three years to talk myself into purchasing one, after all, they are rather pricey. Here is my somewhat brief review and random comments. I just got it yesterday afternoon, so I have limited experience with it so far. I do own an old Apple TV 3rd Generation which does not have the app store capability, and quite frankly it blows chunks. No comparison with the newest vers...

New Archaeological Evidence Shows Pontius Pilate Not as Bad as We Thought

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/ShutterstockWhen you hear the name “Pontius Pilate” you probably think of Jesus. After all, were it not for Jesus the vast majority of people would never have heard of him. Historians remember Pilate as a rash and headstrong ruler who unnecessarily offended the religious sensibilities of Jews in Roman Judea, plundered the Temple treasury, and—most famously—sentenced Jesus of Nazareth to die. He was, in other words, an ineffective leader whose actions contrib...

AT&T's DirecTV Now lost 83,000 net subscribers during the first quarter of 2019. Dish Network's Sling TV gained just 7,000.

Stock market records, Amazon's visit to Madison Avenue, and mental-health startups

The digital skinny-TV bundles that promised a cheap alternative to cable are getting more expensive. The CEO behind a $20 package explains why.

Philo, one of the US's cheapest pay-TV bundles, announced this week that it would soon scrap its $16-per-month package and sell only its $20 plan. It's one of the tough calls the 18-month-old streaming-TV service has had to make as it grapples with the challenges of live TV. In the past few months, internet-TV bundles from YouTube TV, DirecTV Now, Hulu, and FuboTV have hiked prices. Sling TV and PlayStation Vue also raised the costs of some of their plans last summer.

6 ways OTT is shaking up the TV landscape from nudity to new ads

The way people are watching TV has changed with over-the-top viewing that bypasses traditional cable, but advertising has not quite caught up. Brands are still stuck in a 15- and 30-second commercial mindset. Companies like CBS, Viacom and Hulu are hoping to fix that, however, enticing advertisers to update their strategies in the age of on-demand video and streaming TV. “We need to educate and inform marketers that it’s worth the effort,” says Peter Naylor, head of ad sales at Hulu. “The juic...

Streaming TV service Philo gets a little more expensive

As the internet TV services have matured, their pricing has as well. The majority have raised their price points — some have even done so multiple times.
