Episode 79: Chromecast and Nate Silver going to ESPN/ABC News

We discuss Google’s Chromecast, and whether or not it’s worth picking up.

It is afterall $35, so it really can’t hurt to pick it up. But if you already own a Roku or an Apple TV, what does this device do that your device doesn’t do? But, again, it’s a $35 streaming TV device. It’s the cheapest way to get Netflix to your TV.

We also discuss Nate Silver going to ESPN and ABC News and why we think that happened. This is a big move.

Episode 77: Microphone in the wrong computer

arrested-development

Jeremy and I agree that the new Independence Day movie will be one of the best movies ever. Awfully (good) as Jeremy says.

That leads us naturally into a discussion about Netflix, Arrested Development and the future of TV shows on Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services.

We also discuss how HBO, Netflix and others don’t need as many successful shows as a broadcast network would need in order to be successful.

We also discuss the latest Apple TV update and how both HBO Go and WatchESPN require a cable subscription to use, which is a big change from the past.
