TV ad for LG G6 has the new flagship swimming with the fishies

Many of you know that when someone is said to be “swimming with the fishies,” it means that the person has been murdered. More specifically, the murder usually resulted from an execution. LG has just released a new ad for the LG G6 that shows the phone swimming with the fishies, perhaps signifying the manufacturer’s decision to kill off the modular build attempted with last year’s LG G5. Once Motorola and Lenovo launched the Moto Z line, LG could easily see the error of its ways.

But we’re pretty sure that there was no such symbolism in the commercial. Actually, the spot is showing …


The best TV and film Easter eggs of the year

TwitterFacebook

Easter eggs mean different things to different people. They might mean a time-honored tradition or an excuse to hunt for prizes and candy (or both). For a rabid entertainment fan, Easter eggs are friendly little inside jokes in your favorite pieces of pop culture that reward the voracious viewer.

In honor of Easter here are some of our favorite Easter eggs (ha, get it?) from the past year. 

Moana

Disney/Pixar films are connected in a way Ryan Murphy will envy for all time, and Moana was no exception. The animation included lightning-fast glimpses of characters from The Little Mermaid, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, and many from Aladdin, which was also directed by Ron Clements and John Musker.

The first Samsung Galaxy S8 TV commercial is here

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are already available to pre-order in the US, but there’s still a couple of weeks left before they’ll be released. Unsurprisingly, in the meantime, Samsung is busy heavily promoting its new flagship series, and today it revealed the very first Galaxy S8 TV commercial – embedded above.

The commercial isn’t about specs, and doesn’t really say much about what the Galaxy S8 can do for you. Instead, it focuses on what strikes you first upon laying eyes on a Galaxy S8: its dual-curve Infinity Display, and the almost non-existent …

YouTube TV service goes live in select cities, but the rollout continues

Google’s YouTube TV service has just been launched in select cities in the United States. Officially unveiled back in February, the service is now available in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia.

Although it’s only been launched in five cities, Google claims the service will come to even more U.S. markets very soon. If you’re living in one of the cities mentioned, you can subscribe to YouTube TV if you think it suits your needs.

It’s worth noting that membership is precise $35 a month, which, as pointed by Google, is …

Hulu is getting ready to take on Sling and PlayStation Vue with live TV

Ever since the announcement of Sling TV at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, Internet-based services for watching live television have been hitting the scene left and right. Although there are already three top dogs to choose from (Sling, DirecTV Now, and PlayStation Vue), Hulu is now prepping to take a stab at this increasingly popular market.

Details are currently quite scarce as the company has only released a teaser website for the upcoming service, but there are a few main points that we can talk about right now. For starters, live TV through …

2013's Tomb Raider game is now available on the Android-based Shield TV for $14.99

If you own an NVIDIA Shield TV and are looking for a new game to provide you with numerous hours of hand-to-hand combat, firefights, and plenty of tomb-raiding, you’ll probably be happy to hear that NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios has officially released its port of 2013’s Tomb Raider for the Android-based set-top box. This is the same studio responsible for bringing Portal, Half-Life 2, and The Witness over to NVIDIA Shield-branded gadgets, and the release of Tomb Raider creates for a very nice addition to the company’s portfolio of game ports.

Tomb Raider was initially launched back …

YouTube TV officially announced: 44 channels for $35 per month

We’ve been hearing rumors for a while that YouTube was working on its own streaming TV bundle, similar to that of Sling TV or DirecTV NOW, and those rumors just came true. Google has announced YouTube TV, which will offer access to 44 channels for $35 per month, and allow you to watch on any device you want to from your phone to your TV.

The 44 channels offer a pretty solid choice of options, including the four major networks, news, sports, entertainment, education, kids content, and even YouTube Red (yes, that’s right! YouTube Red is considered a full “channel” being offered.) …

Amazon Fire TV is now built into 4K sets

You won’t have to buy a separate Fire TV device just to use Amazon’s full services on your TV.

amazon-fire-tv-now-built-into-4k-sets

Seiki, Westinghouse and Element Electronics are launching a series of 4K sets with Fire TV technology built-in. They all include Amazon’s current interface, including a wide range of Alexa voice commands thanks to a microphone-equipped remote. If you use an over-the-air TV antenna, you’ll have access to both a channel guide and favorite individual channels on the home screen.

None of the companies are ready to talk pricing or exact ship dates (you’ll only get them sometime “later this year”). However, there will be 43-, 50-, 55- and 65-inch models. And given that these brands (usually) focus on lower-cost TVs, there’s a good chance that you won’t have to pay a premium for native Amazon features.

The question is whether or not you’ll see any other major TV makers follow suit. Heavyweights like Samsung, LG and Sony already have highly developed smart TV platforms (whether in-house or Android TV), and it’s doubtful they’ll ditch their existing strategies just to say they have Fire TV support.
