Amazon Video Streaming On Demand on Tivo

It appears Netflix isn’t the only one streaming video to Tivo. Amazon appears to be launching their own Amazon Video on Demand, as seen above in the Tivo menu. Although the "Available in High Definition" menu option doesn’t work yet, it appears it will soon.

This could be bad news for Netflix.

Columbia and Sony never doled out a satisfactory answer as to why their content disappeared from the Netflix portion of Xbox Live, but Columbia Pictures has made an amends. The movie giant and much of their varied content has re-appeared for instant streaming via your Xbox 360. Sony Pictures has yet to follow suit but various sources indicate it should not be long until they do. This is a great start, however. Get to streaming guys!

Sony Blocks Content from Being Viewed on Xbox 360 Via Netflix Instant Watch


xbox netflix sony Sony Blocks Content from Being Viewed on Xbox 360 Via Netflix Instant Watch

Various sources indicate that just hours before Microsoft’s Netflix-enabled Xbox 360 dashboard update hit, Sony made a lion’s share of their content unavailable for viewing on their rival’s gaming console. The same goes for Sony’s subsidiary Columbia Pictures. Netflix officials chalk it up to the "ebb and flow" of licensing agreements and say it’s only a temporary suspension. The Sony and Columbia content can still be streamed on other devices, just not on the Xbox. The console wars may be heating up again.

netflix hd dvd Netflix Ends Support for HD DVD   Starting December

Netflix has finally ended support for HD DVD. Starting on December 15th, all HD DVDs listed in queues will be replaced by regular DVDs. The company supported the format long after most institutions, so their subscriber base can at least thank them for that. RIP HD DVD.
