    Older Tv shows in HD ? Streaming , Possible bluray ?

    I'm trying to find shows that are in HD that you can not buy a blu-ray yet . Hulu has The Odd Couple but not every episode due to some music rights issues . I noticed Gilligan's Island in HD on Itunes . Anyone like to add to the list would be awesome

    Roku flicker problem on my Optoma projector

    I've had my Optoma projector for a couple of years now, with no other problems, but from Day 1, it's had a mildly-annoying signal flicker whenever I play streaming video from my Roku 3 device. The flashing/flicker is exactly like what is seen on this guy's YouTube video: I've gone into the...

    Rogue One spinoff series with Diego Luna for Disney+

    Bob Iger announced today that the Disney streaming service will be called Disney+. I'm really surprised they couldn't come up with a better name than that. How long do you think it took somebody to come up with that name? But anyway, also in the announcement is a second live-action Star Wars...

    4K Blu-ray in HDR10, but iTunes streaming in Dolby Vision...?!

    In looking around, I've come across several titles that are available to rent/purchase in iTunes via the Apple TV 4K, that are in Dolby Vision. But when I look at the 4K UHD Blu-ray releases of these same titles, they were never released in anything but HDR10. So is Apple/iTunes converting them...

    THE THING (1951) Streaming Tragedy

    Was just watching THE THING (purchased from Amazon in HD. Surprised to find it there in HD and further surprised that they have framed it in 16x9 widescreen! Surely WB knows that it's a academy ratio film! Hope if it ever makes it to blu-ray, it will be presented at 4x3, the format it was...

    Has anyone used the Tubi app/website for streaming? Thoughts and opinions, please!

    It sounds like a Hulu/Crackle hybrid (several movies I've also seen on Prime/Hulu/Netflix), but it's free. I would guess that it's advertiser supported. If anyone has tried it I'd love to hear your opinions! (not that I really need ANOTHER streaming option....)

    PUNKY BREWSTER (live-action) on NBC.com is rated TV-PG

    Nice to see it up, but exactly what is the basis for a TV-PG rating for this particular show? I don't even remember them ever using profanity when other family sitcoms of this era got the occasional four-letter word (albeit not any from George Carlin's list). This wasn't even one of the episodes...

    Streaming Radio with Amazon Dot

    We're in the market for an FM alarm clock radio for the bedroom. I was thinking the Dot might work. It can certainly be used to wake us up. I'm used to hearing my local (Little Rock) NPR station in the morning, but somehow I doubt I can stream that. Anyway to see if it's possible?
