Re: Pet Peeves?

I have a friend who's a schoolteacher. And she says that when the kids use the signal for a phone call now, they place their palm flat against the side of their face instead of using the old pinky &...

Re: Pet Peeves?

I don't know why this bothers me as much as it does: Whenever a scene in a TV show or a movie is supposed to be sourced from a TV (think a newscast), they have these huge scan lines as if it's...

Re: Papillon (2018) -- Remake starring Rami Malek & Charlie Hunnam

This is a gorgeous looking movie. I wish more movies looked like this instead of the washed out, pukey digital color grading that is used for most modern movies.

Re: Streaming television -- Why do you love it? And why do you hate it?

Love:

A/V quality - while cable & broadcast are mostly stuck in 1080i, or even 720p, a good portion of streaming is available in 4k with HDR. Plus better sound. And then there are the lack of...

Re: cancelling Directv

So is this 13 channels of live-only SD or something? Would love to hear how you've gotten out from under the equipment fees, taxes, DVR fee, etc etc etc. It's been my experience that you can...

Re: DirecTV Now -- News and Updates

Not many updates here but DTVNOW has made huge improvements in the last few months. True 5.1 surround, a DVR that 'almost' functions like a real DVR, and an end to the buffering. I'm on my 3rd try...

Re: 9-1-1 (FOX) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/23/18

This show has always had some unbelievable situations but this week's was over the top. I mean, c'mon, someone renting a movie in a video store? Who does this?

Re: Dish Removes HBO & Cinemax Channels After Impasse

yeah, how does this work? Usually the blackout channels are part of a larger package so it's less obvious. But when you pay directly for a channel you're not getting, do they issue a refund? Or...

Re: The Beatles Announce ‘White Album’ Deluxe 50th Anniversary Edition 11/9

Wow, the sound quality on this is fantastic. Even just listening to the streaming version. I wasn't going to buy this but just pulled the trigger because I can't wait to hear what it sounds like...

Re: Streaming Services - What factors do you consider before subscribing?

My #1 criteria is whether it's going to force me to watch commercials. They could have the most compelling content, but if I'm forced to watch the same damn beef jerky commercial every 6 minutes,...

Re: Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan (Amazon) S: John Krasinski -- premieres 8/31/18

I had read earlier that this is going to be the first Amazon original in both Dolby Vision & Atmos. I'm finding Amazon's 4K original content increasingly hard to find though. I hate that they have...

Re: 8K TV's -- Are you ready for them?

I've been buying HDTV's since 2005 and have never had one crap out. I replace them only because technology improves, they get bigger, and price lowers. 1080p is already an outdated technolgy. ...

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Is anyone able to find Prime Original series in UHD anymore? They always had two versions, unlike Netflix, which just ups your quality based on subscription. But now I can't even find the UHD/HDR...

Re: Castle Rock (Hulu) - Stephen King anthology series - EP: Abrams - premieres 7/25/

Nowhere, this is a Hulu exclusive. I take the wording 'with the first 3 only on Hulu' to mean that the 1st three episodes will show up on Day 1, with the rest to follow weekly.

Re: The Stephen King Catch-All Potpourri Thread

King is the reason I originally got a Kindle. I just don't have the energy to lug around a 576 page book for the time it takes to read it.

I am finding The Outsider intriguing though. First...

Re: Hulu + Spotify Combo Deal $12.99/mo ($4.99/mo for Students)

Nor a way to substitute the Hulu no-commercials plan for a few buck more. I'd rather pay for both separately than to have to watch ads.

Re: HBO is $4.99/month at Hulu (limited time offer)

I think you can use your Hulu credentials to log in via HBO Now. Which has full 1080p/5.1 support.

Re: Should Cell Phones Be Banned at Concerts?

I don't really care either way but people who record vertical videos at concerts and then put them up on YouTube should be flogged. Just turn your phone sideways and it will fill up the screen...

Re: In and Out--Short-term subscriptions

All of them are super easy. Unlike cable you don't have to call a CSR and beg to cancel. Just cancel online & it's as easy as 'see ya, bye!'. So this works really well for me as I can weave in &...

Re: Anyone Ditching Their BDs For UHD-BD Yet?

Re: Pet Peeves?

Yeah, I get that but my peeve is why play the radio at all if it's 70% commercials. There is nothing wrong with silence. There is even a nice public radio station locally that plays great music...

Re: Pet Peeves?

Terrestrial radio in public places - I hear this quite often & I don't get it. It's nothing but the most obnoxious commercials in existence & about 30% overplayed music. I'm getting a haircut...

Re: "Smooth" Motion on Newer TVs

The thing that drives me crazy about this 'feature' it's that it's enabled as the default in almost all TV's. Something that changes the picture this drastically for the worse should be something...
