Apple’s rumored TV streaming service may include local stations

Eyewitness_News_in_New_York_City

Apple’s plans for a 4K TV set may be dead, but the company’s still expected to launch its own video streaming service later this year. Now, a new report from Re/code suggests the release could be delayed over plans to offer local programming as part of the package.

The deal could give Apple’s upcoming service a clear advantage over the competition, since few streaming options offer any local TV access at all. However, the lengthy negotiations required to secure these rights are apparently holding everything else up. The entire network of local and national broadcasters is pretty complicated, and many smaller stations don’t even have the technology necessary to support digital streaming.

So it seems unlikely Apple will launch its new service this fall despite its best efforts. Several anonymous TV executives told Re/code that the Cupertino company hasn’t established deals with any programmers so far, though they still expect the service to launch eventually.

Apple was initially expected to announce the service by June with a mix of 25 channels and support for Apple TV along with iOS devices. ABC, CBS and Fox are apparently all onboard, though NBC may still be out thanks to a not-so-friendly relationship between Comcast and Apple.

Whether the rumored streaming service actually launches this year seems pretty up in the air, but with Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference just a few weeks away the company may be scrambling to finalize these deals. We’ll be covering the event live from California, though it looks like you shouldn’t expect any official TV streaming news just yet.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
