Roku to give direct access to more than 25 premium subscription services

Showtime, Starz and Epix are among the options.

Roku today announced that The Roku Channel — the company’s ad-supported channel that already gives free movies and TV — will soon provide access to premium subscription services.

This is in line with a report from mid-2018, which we summed up thusly: “If it sounds like Amazon Prime Video Channels, that’s because it basically is.” And that’s pretty much what has been announced today. (Amazon Prime Video Channels, if you’ve yet  [Read More…]

This UE MEGABOOM Bluetooth speaker has never been more affordable

Got that boom boom pow!

Amazon has the super powerful UE MEGABOOM on sale for $ 99.99, a savings of $ 150 from its regular price. That marks its lowest price ever there; Best Buy just offered this price on the speaker as a one-day deal earlier this week too, so there’s a good chance this offer won’t last for much longer than that. It sells for over $ 175 on average otherwise.

The UE MEGABOOM has  [Read More…]

Although it was far better than Tronc, the name didn’t really make any sense or end up gaining any brand equity and so Verizon is going  [Read More…]
