The Official NBC Android App Now Supports Chromecast Video Streaming

The Chromecast support in NBC’s official network app doesn’t come with any other notable changes, though video streaming appears to work with all of the live and pre-recorded video within. A live stream of the national network is available, but only if you log in with a compatible cable or satellite provider. Most of the larger national options are supported. Without a login users can still access trailing episodes of prime-time shows. – Michael Crider, Android Police

Disney Says Skinny Bundles Are Hurting ESPN and Will Save ESPN

Disney says that the subscriber losses it has seen at ESPN, which it first started noting out loud last summer, come from people signing up for smaller pay TV packages, which don’t include ESPN. Disney also says that it is pleased with the traction it is seeing from Sling TV, a Web-based skinny bundle — it offers a couple dozen channels for $20 a month — that includes ESPN. Sling isn’t a giant hit — it likely has no more than 500,000 subscribers — but Disney CEO Bob Iger and his lieutenants repeatedly called it out on Tuesday, suggesting that ESPN would be working with other skinny bundles in the future. – Peter Kafka, Re/code

Time Warner Wants Hulu To Stop Airing Current Seasons Of TV Shows

Time Warner Inc. — not to be confused with its former subsidiary Time Warner Cable — has been talking to Hulu about purchasing a portion of the streaming service, which is currently a joint venture of Comcast (NBC), Disney (ABC), and 21st Century Fox. […] If Time Warner purchases a 25% stake in Hulu, the Journal’s sources say it wouldn’t want to offer the quick online access to new episodes that the site’s current partners provide. […] Time Warner would rather use Hulu to push users to on-demand and network websites for currently aired shows. That means they would likely need to use a pay-TV provider login to see these episodes. – Chris Morran, Consumerist

Roku unveils hybrid streaming box that works with cable

The box is particularly compelling considering FCC chairman Tom Wheeler’s recent comments, in which he suggested that consumers should be able to choose their own cable boxes, as they would for other equipment, like a cable modem. This might start to usher in that era, particularly as consumers get adjusted to this “hybrid” approach that includes cable connectivity, as well as support for a multitude of streaming services. Cable operators will have the option to partner with Roku on the box. – Todd Haselton, TechnoBuffalo

‘The Godfather Epic’ Seven-Hour Cut Streaming on HBO Now

HBO NOW is good for many things: for catching up on those shows you’ve been missing, for watching films exclusively airing on the premium network (including pretty much all the Police Academy movies, if that’s your thing, sure), for using your parents’ password to take advantage of their disposable income… But there’s something else the streaming service has that you won’t find anywhere else: a seven-hour cut of the first two Godfather films, edited in chronological order. – Britt Hayes, ScreenCrush
