Top Media

Streamers

Media Streamers have become extremely popular in the last few years. Vudu, Netflix Hulu, Amazon Video and iTunes are the major players when it comes to legal content streaming providers. They all offer great value and cost much less than a typical monthly Cable or Satellite TV subscription. Here are the important features that set them apart. Subscribing to one or more of these streaming content providers is often the first idea that comes to mind for cable cutters. Once you become acquainted with the features, convenience and large selection of great content these providers offer at an affordable price, you will see what a great value compared to cable these streaming video service companies provide. Let's take a look at today's top five largest and most popular media streaming companies: Netflix vs Vudu Netflix has the advantage of being around the longest and has developed a large subscriber base and good name recognition from their DVD by mail subscription service. They now offer more Movies and entire Television series all commercial free. With their instant watch streaming service and their large library, Netflix is a great choice for cable cutters. We have a FREE Netflix App that will help you find all the latest and popular movies and TV shows on Netflix. Click here to get the app! iTunes Apple has favorable name recognition based on their popularity of iTunes and many of their products which include their Apple TV. The iTunes store laid out quite nicely and makes it really easy to find exactly what you are looking for. They offer the most current television series and movies, although at a premium price. Netflix vs Hulu Hulu Plus now called just plain Hulu may seem a little out gunned by some of the larger competitors like Apple and Amazon. The free Hulu service does not offer the same level of content as Amazon or Netflix. Upgrading to Hulu provides more current content. Unlike Netflix Hulu does include short ads. They are now offering an upgraded plan for $11 a month without ads. VUDU vs Netflix Vudu offers newer movies in higher quality HD. Again since they are smaller they still yet don't have the high volume of content. Vudu is all about providing higher quality streaming video content. While Vudu may not have the most content, videos streamed from Vudu are top quality and some are almost equivalent to blu ray.   Amazon Video VS Netflix Amazon Video has the advantage of Amazon's great reputation from its Kindle platform and online store. They also offer a great interface and large selection of content. In the past their content may have been somewhat lacking, Amazon has more than doubled the number of shows and movie offerings available this last year. They now have over 140 thousand of newer movies, TV shows and Classics. Amazon recently announced Prime customers now have free access to HBO Shows. They are the first streaming provider to offer access to HBO.

Yahoo, Verizon, AT&T Said to

Want NFL Thursday Streaming

Rights

Everybody wants the Super Bowl. It’s the biggest money maker in TV history. Now the streaming medial giants want to get in on the act. Though last night's Super Bowl was widely available online -- commercials included -- the vast majority of Americans watched the broadcast just as CBS Corp. intended: on a big-screen TV. In five years, though, that may not be true. Aware that a growing number of viewers are canceling pay-TV, signing up for fewer channels or streaming video over the internet, the National Football League is courting technology and telecommunications companies eager to convert the would-be cord-cutters. As an early step, the league has been shopping the streaming rights for "Thursday Night Football," holding conversations with Apple, Amazon, Yahoo, Facebook, Verizon Communications. and AT&T. Some of those companies balked at the high price tag, according to people familiar with the companies' plans, but AT&T, Yahoo, and Verizon are expected to bid. Yahoo live-streamed the NFL's London game last year, and Verizon's wireless customers can currently stream live football games on their smartphones (but not most tablets). The NFL and and the companies declined to comment on the record. The NFL isn't looking for a long-term relationship, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. The league wants to use the next few years to experiment with different kinds of media, distribution models and technologies. By the time the NFL's biggest broadcast contracts expire in 2021, it will be prepared to sell a broad array of digital rights -- and make more money. This is a snippet from the Advertising Age. You can read the rest of the article here.
