    Streaming from iPad to TV via HT receiver

    Hey guys, I ran into an issue last night trying to watch the NHL Finals. I have the PS Vue streaming service and the game wasn't available to me, so I started watching it on the iPad via the NBC Sports app. I thought I could stream this to my TV via Airplay, but all I got was sound - no video...

    Problem with Amazon Prime Streaming

    This has started to happen often. I start a program that is in HD or HDR and it starts in a mode that is clearly not even HD. I back out of the program, start from the beginning and it's in the correct resolution. Anyone else having this problem? I'm streaming with my LG 65UH8500.

    HBO NOW on 2nd Gen Fire TV - Lousy Streaming Quality

    I just took advantage of Amazon's free 30 day trial subscription to HBO Now on my 4K Fire TV box, and I'm appalled at how terrible it looks. We decided to watch Westworld, and while we like the show the macroblocking, banding, and artifacting the app is throwing out is so distracting we almost...

    The Kettering Incident - BBC, streaming on Amazon

    Has anyone watched this series streaming on Amazon? Done by the BBC. It's like a murder mystery with sci-fi overtones set in a small town in Tasmania. They're calling it in the style of Tasmanian gothic. Has a similar feel to The Killing or The Bridge. I watched the whole thing - 8 eps and it...

    FandangoNow Customer Service

    Went to watch my UV copy of The Huntsman: Winter's War on FandangoNow, which showed that I had UHD access for this title (I was curious how it fared when compared to the UHD disc). What a disaster! Although I can watch in UHD, the soundtrack that accompanies the film was for Luc Besson's Lucy...

    Blu-ray vs. streaming

    I'd like to get peoples' thoughts on Blu-ray vs. streaming when it comes to theatrical movies. I haven't rented a movie on disc in years now, but I still collect Blu-rays, especially of beloved classics. Why don't I just stream them? I think the image quality is better on disc, even when...

    Going all Digital - Apple or Vudu advice?

    I have decided to go mostly all Digital for my movies due to the fact I am going to be moving to an apartment where space is limited. Therefore, I simply must organize and keep things more modern without the bulk of storing all my physical media. Having said that, I find it hard to get good...

    Streaming VOD providers are getting fewer and fewer

    The competition of Streaming VOD providers is getting interesting. While some have closed shop (RedBox, Target Ticket), others have been acquired and/or merged. Fandango recently acquired both M-Go and Flixster (as part of their acquisition of Rotten Tomatoes), rebranding M-Go as FandangoNow...
