Netflix vs. Shomi: What you can expect from the Rogers/Shaw streaming service

As you may have heard, the new streaming video service, coming from Rogers Media and Shaw Media, will be available to Rogers and Shaw Internet and cable customers in a beta version starting the first week of November. The Netflix-like venture will cost viewers $8.99 per month, and by the end of its first year, the service will reportedly include 1,200 movies and 340 TV titles. […] But if you already have Netflix, should you even bother adding Shomi to your digital viewing arsenal? I guess it depends on what you think of the content.

Tablo TV: A cord-cutter’s best friend

Nuvyyo offers the TabloTV in two versions: the base, $250 model sports two ATSC tuners, two USB ports and even a dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi antenna. When it launches later this summer, the $320 version will get a total of four tuners, which allows to record and stream up to four live or recorded programs simultaneously. Tablo TVs come with either a 30-day or six-month subscription to Nuvyyo’s enhanced EPG, featuring 14 days of guide data, synopses and various recording options. After that, users have to pay an extra $5 per month, $50 per year or opt for a lifetime subscription at $150. You also need to subscribe if you wish to watch TV or your recordings remotely. – Alain McKenna, QMI Agency via Toronto Sun http://ift.tt/1p1WoIE
