Color us impressed with Amazon's negotiating skills. HBO has kept a tight grip on its content and doesn't care to have its shows streamed outside of its HBO Go application, which is only available to HBO subscribers, but for the first time, that's about to change. Amazon today announced it inked a content licensing agreement with HBO that will make Prime Instant Video the exclusive online-only subscription home for select HBO programming.
Before you start jumping up and down thinking you'll finally get to see what all the fuss is about with Game of Thrones, the hit original series isn't part of the package -- drats! However, if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, you will have access to some older award-winning shows -- Sopranos, Six Feet Under, The Wire, Big Love, Deadwood, Eastbound & Down, Family Tree, Enlightened, Treme, early seasons of Boardwalk Empire and True Blood, Band of Brothers, John Adams, and more.
Make no mistake, this is a huge win for Amazon in the streaming wars, and it comes right on the heels of its Fire TV set-top box launch (side note: HBO Go is coming to Fire TV).
Amazon says the first wave of content will arrive on Prime Instant Video May 21. As time goes on, more shows will be added to the mix -- Girls, The Newsroom, and Veep to name a few -- along with comedy specials featuring Lewis Black, Ellen DeGeneres, Louis CK, and Bill Maher.
Samsung on Wednesday announced that it's Galaxy Tab 4 family of tablets will be available in the U.S. beginning May 1 starting at $200. There are three different size options -- 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch, all three of which will be available to pre-order tomorrow. Though each of the three tablets features a different size display, each one has the same resolution (1280x800).
That's a bit of a buzz kill when tablet makers are pushing the envelope with densely packed pixels, though none of these carry a premium price tag. The Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 will retail for $200, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 for $270, and the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 for $350.
A 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM power the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 model. It also features 16GB of onboard storage, microSD card slot, 3MP rear-facing camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, stereo speaker, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, 6,800mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
You'll find the same specs on the 8-inch and 7-inch models, except the 8-inch version has a 4,450mAh battery and the 7-inch is equipped with a 4,000mAh battery. There's also an 8GB storage option for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4.
It's been a little less than nine months since Nvidia released its Shield handheld game console to the public, and while there have been software updates since then, there's already talk of a second generation model with improved hardware. While this hasn't been confirmed as the real deal, news of a Shield 2 making a benchmarking run at AnTuTu is making the rounds. Care to venture a guess about its hardware?
According to the benchmark stats, which was first noticed by gforgames.com, the supposed Shield 2 wields an Nvidia Tegra K1 quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz with a Kepler GPU comprised of 192 CUDA cores. The System-on-Chip (SOC) is flanked by 4GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage.
The screen resolution is listed at 1440x810, which could indicate that 90 pixels in height are taken up by the on-screen navigation bar. Rounding out the spec sheet is a 0.3MP front-facing camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The device scored 44,500 points in the AnTuTu benchmark.
A typo in the spec sheet on AnTuTu gets our BS meter tingling, so take this one with a dash of salt.
