Now that you've been sucked in and have grown hopelessly addicted to Hulu, it looks like you may have to pay in order to continue getting "your fix."

Wow. How the times have changed. In 2000, hearing about "HDTV" was rare. You might see one or two big events in HD, and you'd probably have to visit a sports bar or something similar to see it. Most people were still wowed with broadband Internet, and seeing March Madness in 720p was the least of their worries. SD content had worked fine for... Read more...

Mobile TV is still a growing technology in the U.S. People haven't had time to decide whether or not they're interested, and it's still available in just a few select markets.

3D. It's a format that's being talked about, and implemented, almost everywhere these days. It's impossible to avoid, but thankfully it doesn't seem that 3D will be completely replacing 2D anytime soon. 3D as a format has had its fair share of pundits due to having to wear 3D glasses to view most implementations, but to say that no buzz has...

We don't enjoy saying that the first ball has dropped here, but it sure seems that way. Hulu, which was called by NBC an "evil plan to destroy the world," might just be destroying NBC's hope of raking in any serious profits. The site delivers all sorts of television programs to online viewers at no cost, only... Read more...
If you've been led to believe that Mobile TV and Web-based programming aren't going anywhere fast, you've been lied to.

A new report stemming from Horowitz Associates' annual Broadband... Read more...

If you're not aware, Boxee is merely a software overlay that acts as a portal to web content; it essentially opens content from web sites the same way a typical web browser... Read more...
What started out as a simple, innocent "plan to destroy the world" may actually, in fact, destroy the world. Hulu has always been something that's "too good to be true." Free programming on-demand, wherever you have an Internet connection? Even with pre-roll ads, it's still a solid deal for the consumer, but it may not always be that way.... Read more...

The Roku movie streaming set-top box has been a real winner in the grand scheme of things.

We've always heard that something's "on" when it hits the mainstream, so we guess it's about time we finally confessed that Internet TV has emerged from the closet.
