Is Xbox helping to bring the end of cable?

Posted on

It’s been reported that Xbox live is being redesigned to offer access to a wide variety of providers such as Verizon FiOs, Comcast xfinity, and HBO.

It’s an interesting move, and I hope it gets more people to consider cutting the cord. As the EW article says, “The modern television-navigating experience is awful. You know it. Your parents know it. Steve Jobs knew it. The American television landscape is dominated by a few cable providers which run on frail operating systems that are basically just less charming versions of the Prevue Channel. ” So why deal with it when you can select very specifically the content that you want to watch – and pay for only that content?

If you’re in the mood for some eye rolling, read down to the comments of the EW article. They are as enlightening as ever. Some people still don’t get how paying for cable is different than pay for the internet (which is all you need to take advantage of something like what Xbox is offering, or to use Hulu and Netflix on a PS3 like I do).

Leverage renewed for 5th season!

Posted on

I’m a little bit behind in the news. I was away for part of last weekend and then I’ve had a fairly busy week so far. So I’ve slowly been catching up on news. But I was pretty ecstatic when I read that Leverage has been picked up by TNT for a Fifth Season!

Also awesome news? Wil Wheaton is reprising his role as ChaOs in the current season finale! Check out his blog entry for some amusing videos with the cast.

Sadly I’m also always behind on Leverage as well because I have to wait for it to come out on DVD.
