What’s new on Amazon Prime Video for August 2018

Bring on Jack Ryan, a Gringo, and more!

Finally, August is upon us. (Same time every year, but whatever. It’s been a long one.) And we’re particularly interested in this particular August for Amazon Prime Video for the following reason: Jack Ryan.

OK, we have to wail until the end of the month (because of course we do) to finally get our first taste of John Krasinski in the latest incarnation of the classic Tom Clancy character. And  [Read More…]

You read that right. It’s almost August. Here’s what’s new on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu.

Let us just put things like this: Between Netflix and Amazon Prime Video and Hulu in August, there are just too many new movies and shows that we can’t list them all here. (We can, however, list them at CordCutters.com, so hit those links below.)

This Audible offer was one of our favorite Prime Day deals, and it’s still available

Amazon Prime Video finally will have Dolby Atmos content on Aug. 31

Whether you’re actually ready for it is another matter.

You soon will be able to watch Amazon Prime Video in 4K resolution and listen to it with Dolby Atmos. That may sound strange, given that the Amazon Fire TV 4K released in 2017 was Atmos-ready from the start. So, too, is the newer Fire TV Cube. But here’s the thing — Amazon didn’t actually have any content that supported Atmos.

That apparently will change starting with the new  [Read More…]

If you buy one Amazon device on Prime Day, make it the Fire TV Cube

Treat Yo Self.

I think more-often-than-not deals are about saving on the essentials. After all, if we have to buy it, we might as well save some money on it. If you’re going to buy new silverware or charging cables, you should get them at a discount. If you’re going to start your smart home, you should go with a bundle that gets you what you need without breaking the bank. If you’ve got a baby on the way  [Read More…]

Every pet owner should purchase this Prime Day deal

Your cat will thank you.

I have news for you: your cat probably hates stagnant water. I know, I know, it’s a bombastic statement, because nobody knows how to raise your fur babies better than you do. But it’s true. If you have a kitty that craves running water from the faucet, you know what I’m talking about.

It’s not your fault. Blame evolution. For one, cats can’t see water very well, which is partially why they sometimes paw  [Read More…]
