There was no shortage of key entertainment announcements and takeaways from CES 2018 last month in Las Vegas. Here are the top trends from the event impacting the connected entertainment landscape: Voice control continues to be the hot feature garnering consumer and industry attention. Pay-TV providers are considering their options (or, like Comcast, are already deploying voice controls), and manufacturers of set-top boxes, streaming devices, smart speakers, and remote controls...
Speaking from an entertainment focus at CES, nearly everyone I met with talked about being able to provide a single, unified interface for all the video products and services that consumers are using. And when you think about it, it makes complete sense why that is such a big deal. We have reached the point where using two or more video services is becoming the norm rather than the exception to a rule, and because users have to sort through the several different services they use to...
The Apple Event was today, and Apple made a series of interesting announcements about its iPhone lineup. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were announced, and the rumored iPhone X was confirmed. These new iPhones offer more powerful processing via Apple's new A11 chip, as well as an Apple-designed GPU. This allows Apple to offer on-device machine learning and computer vision-enabled abilities which enable a number of new use cases. Apple's machine learning tech enables: Native...
“Hey, did you watch that popular show last night where the thing happened?” “No. I haven’t watched it yet.

Crunchyroll is partnering with Twitch.tv to offer a 6-day Crunchyroll marathon on the gaming-focused live streaming platform.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal  Sunday and confirmed by Comcast and Charter press releases yesterday, the two cable giants have entered into an agreement to work together as they each enter the highly competitive wireless communications industry. From an operational and competitive standpoint, the partnership makes good sense. While both have extensive Wi-Fi networks, Comcast and Charter are newbies in the cellular world. Thus, any efforts to create greater...
The holidays are here, and the winter season has typically served as premium real estate for blockbuster films (secondary only to the summer) and holiday television favorites. Netflix, however, is positioning itself as a stay-in alternative to the box office crowds despite a slate of winter tentpole films.
