Verizon to Let You Pay Only for the Channels You Want

Verizon is planning on launching an Internet TV service that let’s you pay only for the channels you want.

In a Goldman Sachs investor conference, Verizon’s CEO Lowell McAdam revealed his plans for the new cable service.

Someone in Congress is messing with an Orange Is The New Black star’s Wikipedia page

Shortly after 10 p.m. last night, somebody from within the United States House of Representatives changed the Wikipedia entry for Laverne Cox, a transgender actress who plays transgender inmate Sophia Burset on Orange Is the New Black. The entry originally said that an article in The Advocate “touted that Orange Is The New Black contains the first ever women-in-prison narrative to be played by a real transgender woman.” But the anonymous elected representative (or someone from their staff) changed the line to the hateful “a real man pretending to be a woman.” The elected official (or their staff member) also added a link to a National Review article published last month that claimed Cox is “not a real woman.” The IP address was banned from making edits for one month. - Laura M.

I’m watching the 1st season of carmillaseries again. So good!

Radio Republic has started this new campaign where we quote great Artists and seek to provoke conversation, inspire action, and get minds moving.

This one from the esteemed Rey Valera is spot on and I just had to share this.

He may have written ballads but there is a punk in there that lives on. Love it.

The internet and television are converging. There’s no cable box involved in TWC’s Roku app, which may be the most radical thing about it. It’s TV, but the signal is delivered over the internet. TWC can do this because—like Cablevision, AT&T, Verizon, and others—it’s both a cable television provider (an MVPD in industry jargon) and internet service provider (ISP)….

WSJ: Netflix and Nintendo are making a live-action ‘Zelda’

how do I TV

Okay, pals: I’m looking for TV setup advice.  Right now I’ve got nothing (we just moved to a new place) but this is what I’d like to accomplish:

  • Broadcast TV, no cable
  • Ability to stream stuff from the internet (Hulu, Netflix, YouTube)
  • Ability to stream stuff from a computer (maybe I just need a VGA cable? Or is there a way to do this through whatever is enabling the internet streaming?)

I think any new TV should get me digital broadcast channels without having to use the converter anymore (no?), but I know there are a host of ways to do the latter two things: AppleTV, XBox, some DVD players … ?  

I’ll do a bunch of research myself, but would love to get any thoughts you have, TV-loving friends.  Advice?

Concerning aspect ratio on Niji TV

You’ll notice that you can view Japanese TV with Niji, but with the aspect ratio of 4:3 (which pretty much sucks!).

In order to view it 16:9, run VLC Player. It’s a freeware.

Right click on the stream of Niji, copy the URL of any broadcast. You can view it on VLC this way.

I haven’t tried it with GOM Player yet, but it’s worth a try.

Because the world is a big place, but we’re thankful for the Internet! Happy Internet Friends Day Share this with your friends and let them know you’re cyber space has been blessed now that they’re in it.
