Luck ends on HBO


Posted on : 25-Mar-2012 | By : admin | In : Actors and Actresses, Cable, HBO

The season finale of Luck on HBO is airing tonight. It has been sad watching it knowing there will not be a season 2.

Why couldn’t they find a way to continue?

I just wrote an article on how Luck has ended on HBO and am posting the full article at TV Robot.

Read more of the real story why Luck has been cancelled from Michael Man and David Milch


How much of the show had been shot when the plug got pulled?
Mann: We’d shot the first episode of the second season. We were into the first few days of the second episode.

Will we ever see that episode?
Mann: The first episode? Possibly, we’re not sure.

The title of the show was Luck. Every subplot and scene was to some degree about characters responding to sudden shifts in fortune and inexplicable events and random tragedy. Has this series of events, climaxing in cancellation, made either of you look at the show’s themes in a new or different light? 
Milch: I think that it’s all part of it, isn’t it, Matt?”

Cable TV on Computers


Posted on : 09-Mar-2012 | By : Shane Cantwell | In : Broadcasting, Cable, Satellite

In case you missed the great news, here goes: now you can watch cable television on computer! What’s a big deal, you may ask. Read on and you will know what the hype is all about.

It is no secret that cable TV is the most expensive option that gives you an access to a variety of channels – both national and international. Even compared to satellite TV, cable television is costly, while offering fewer choices.

At the same time, as compared to satellite TV, cable TV is more stable and provides higher quality thanks to its independency from weather conditions and physical damages. So, basically, both alternatives have their own advantages and disadvantages.

However, when you choose to watch cable television on computer, you get a package of combined benefits against very few, if any at all, downsides. First of all, you get the same standard of quality that cable TV offers. Secondly, the selection of channels is so incomparably vast, that you will forget about your traditional cable TV easily.

Depending on the number of channels you get, your monthly cable TV subscription may deduct a plum sum out of your family budget (add any pay-per-view programs and movies!). Chances are you would like to expand the current package of channels you get, but simply cannot afford it. The beauty of the method that allows you to watch cable television on computer is that it is very cheap, yet provides you with a mind-bogging selection of channels.

Channels from all parts of the world, as well as your favorite national channels – up to 3,000 in total – can become available to you at a one-time fee which starts below $50 with most online retailers. This is the price you pay for an amazing new invention, a software application, which needs to be downloaded and installed. Don’t worry – even with basic computer skills, this should not be a problem for you.

So, as long as you are connected to the Internet, you can watch cable television on computer and forget about monthly charges as well as pay-per-view programs. Tons of movies, music channels, shows, cartoons and live sports channels will be available to you 24/7. The icing on the cake is that the endless list of channels is constantly updated free of cost. In other words, you get a lifetime access to the world’s cable and satellite television at almost no cost!

Dealing with the Cable and Internet Providers When They Raise Prices on You behind Your Back


Posted on : 30-Jul-2010 | By : kliu888 | In : Cable

Ever since Fox came out demanding that Time Warner pay it subscriber fees for distributing its channels, we’ve known that Time Warner’s services were going to begin to cost more. This is about the time that any negotiating skills you may have would really work to your advantage. The more you’re able to negotiate with your cable Internet providers, the more reasonable your bill is going to look at the end of the month.

When I moved to a new apartment in the suburbs three months ago, just about the first thing I ever did, was to look up the cable and Internet providers in the area to decide on which one to get. I quickly decided on Comcast, and signed up. I didn’t want to miss any American Idol episodes. I asked around a little, and found out that Comcast’s best offer at the time was a $126 package with taxes; I got two set-top boxes with all the premium channels, and I got my high-speed Internet. Things seems to be affordable, and they seemed to cost exactly what I wanted; I congratulated myself on a job well done.

The bills came each month, I paid, and things went smoothly for about six months. That’s when the bill arrived one day, and I saw that I was in for a rude shock. My package didn’t cost $126 a month anymore – it cost about $210. It was the same cable, it was the same Internet, but it cost about $84 more. Needless to say, I was on the phone to Comcast in about 3 seconds, nervously tapping my foot to get past the infernal Muzak to speak to a real live human. The real live human told me that I hadn’t paid attention to a little detail when I had signed my deal. I had an introductory offer which was only good for six months. He had me take out my contract, and had me notice the little x6 written next to where the price was mentioned.

There are lots of consumer websites out there that are crying murder over this kind of unfair trade practice. Check out Complaints Board, or Ripoff Report, and you will understand. So how do you get the upper hand on these cable and Internet providers when they switch and bait like professional con artists? A good way to begin negotiating would be to call your provider and say you have a better deal with a rival company – and you will switch, unless. Alternatively, you can just go right ahead and downgrade your service, and sign up for Netflix. When I did this, I got my price whittled down to $150 a month, but with fewer channels.

Most people have had similar experiences; calling the downgrade and disconnect department at the cable and Internet provider’s toll-free number is that the best place to start. The economy is kind of low now, and the people manning the phone at these departments have instructions to do everything possible to keep a customer. Apparently, promotional offers that end a couple of months after you sign up are completely common. It is our responsibility to keep track of when they expire. If you call in time, you can save yourself an expensive price increase.

BillShrink – A New Service that Promises to Hunt Down the Cheapest Cable and Internet Plan You Can Get


Posted on : 26-Jul-2010 | By : kliu888 | In : Cable

If you always resented the kind of cash you have to pay for cable and Internet service, and if you’ve always wondered if you’re getting the best deal for your needs, there is help at hand. Help, comes in the form of the bill comparison site, BillShrink. What it does is, it helps you compare what each cable and Internet service in your area costs, and arrives at the best choice for your needs.

Here’s what you do. You go to BillShrink’s website, and key in your home address. The page asks you for the name of your current cable and Internet provider, and it asks you how much you pay. It also needs you to provide information about the kind of channels you’re most interested in subscribing to – movies, game shows, music or anything else. You prioritize your picks to show BillShrink what is negotiable, and what isn’t. It asks you about what kind of TVs you have around your home, HDTV or anything else, it asks you about your credit rating, and requests information about how long you’d be willing to sign the contract, for a discounted rate.

BillShrink isn’t new to this whole deal; it already runs a pretty popular service for cell phone contracts and credit cards. With all the information you give it, it’ll find out which among all the providers in your area will give you all the channels you want, at the price you want them. It automatically calculates the price of the best package for you with each provider, it works in any special promotional schemes there may exist at the moment, and then you have your list of cable and Internet package choices ranked by how much they’ll cost you.

BillShrink has all nine provider companies on its database; you will usually see prices for Time Warner, Cablevision, Cox, Charter, Comcast, DirecTV and Dish Network, Verizon and AT&T. Their cable and Internet bill service hasn’t been around long, but it’s already their top-billed service. People love the feeling that here’s someone who stands up for them against the cable and Internet providers.

BillShrink gets a commission from the cable TV service, if you sign up to switch services based on what it recommends. The company uses only publicly available information on the web to bring you its service though, and it can sometimes be wrong. The reason it can be wrong is that it can only gather publicly available information; it can’t get the kind of deal you would if you personally called up your cable Internet provider, and threatened to switch to another provider.

The service is still under development though, and there are constant improvements being made. Installation costs for instance are currently not included in their calculations. But they promise to work on this.

Choosing a Satellite TV Dish Provider


Posted on : 08-Jun-2010 | By : wpnetwork | In : Broadcasting, Cable, Programming, Satellite

Making the decision to leave cable and going with a satellite TV dish provider is a pretty big step. And once you decide to get a satellite dish you will then need to decide which dish provider to sign up with.

There are two major providers in the marketplace — DirectTV and Dish Network.

There are a lot of websites that try to compare the two services, but the problem you run into if you use one of these other websites is that they are often out of date. The cable and satellite TV industry is moving so fast, adding options and changing prices, that your best bet is to bypass these third-party websites and open up two windows in your browser and compare the options of each provider directly from its own website.

Once you decide upon which of the two providers you want to go with, you can always go back to your favorite search engine and search for a coupon or an introductory discount for that service.

Between the two satellite services, I have my favorite, but I think that which ever one you decide to go with, you’ll be pretty happy with.

Buy an Electricity Usage Monitor


Posted on : 05-Apr-2010 | By : mmm4cki | In : Cable, On Demand

Every month finding the money to pay for all of our prior electricity usage to ensure we get power for the next month, can be very annoying. Reducing the utilities bill is a serious measure that we have at our finger tips. Well share some tips and tricks on how to do just that.

Discussing electricity saving with other members living in the house and their roll in reducing monthly costs is a great start. If they help to save electricity at home you could give them rewards of a kind that suits them. Suggest little ideas like keeping the curtains closed during cold whether so that any heat generated by the heater stays in the room, and only having the lights on in the rooms that they are currently in. Also, you could remind them that in shutting off all appliances not being used, if even for five minutes between use, their seemingly small efforts can add up to a chunk of saving!

Buy energy saving gadgets from your supermarket that monitor power intake of the entire house, this will give you control over what electricity you are spending your money on.

The Samsung LED HDTV is Ultra Thin


Posted on : 01-Mar-2010 | By : rgormly | In : Broadcasting, Cable, Reviews, Televisions

Because the Samsung UN55B8000 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz LED HDTV doesn’t use Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL) like other models of HDTV it is Ultra Thin. And I mean ULTRA!!! Only 1.5 inches wide. That is thanks to the use of LED’s (light emitting diodes). This also means that it uses up to 40% less energy than conventional Flat Screen TV’s and it emits virtually no heat like conventional HDTV’s do. Because LED TV’s don’t use bulbs so they don’t generate heat!

Awesome 90s – A Decade of Entertainment


Posted on : 22-Feb-2010 | By : e | In : Broadcasting, Cable, TV Shows

7th Heaven, Friends, All McBeal, Babylon 5, Pensacola – what do these titles conjure in your mind? Yes, these are 90s TV Shows that some of us still have vivid memories of watching either while growing or while still grown ups. One of my favorite 90s TV shows was Lexx. If you loved the Sci-Fi Channel back then, the 60-minute Lexx TV show must have blown your mind as it did me. Based on a story about a group of fugitives from a corrupt and evil inter-planetary government who come into possession of a powerful starship, they journey through the universe exploring planets.

Another 90s TV Show that will forever live in our memories is the 7th Heaven TV show that revolved around the lives of a very loving family who tried to live by traditional Christian values. It explored many serious issues and the kids’ reaction to these issues brought out the essence of the show. This family included a father who was a minister, a stay-at-home mom and 7 children from kindergarten to High School. The teen drama Beverly Hills 90210 kept me up as well. This drama series revolved around the lives of rich Beverly Hills kids. The show gave us a glimpse of the lives of rich kids living in the 90210 zip code. It showed the comparisons of family ties between the less rich and the neglected kids with super rich parents reminding us that money does not buy happiness. With 10 packed seasons, it is one show that will forever live in our memories as well. Even now days digital cable tv shows are more featured and with high definition broadcast.
