AT&T’s DirecTV Streaming Service Will Offer HBO

hbo-sign
AT&T confirmed back in March this year that it’s going to launch a trio of standalone online TV streaming services under the DirecTV brand. Over the past few months, the company has been inking deals with content providers who will be making their channels available on the services. AT&T has now confirmed that HBO has signed on as well, the premium cable network’s linear channel will be available for over-the-top streaming via the DirecTV streaming service.

This announcement was made as HBO renewed its agreement for the traditional DirecTV and U-verse services. AT&T dubs this agreement historic as it covers both traditional and over-the-top streaming platforms.

AT&T has not yet confirmed how much DirecTV Now or DirecTV Mobile is going to cost, but it’s important to get the hype going for these services by confirming which channels will be available for subscribers. Disney has already confirmed that ABC, Disney, and ESPN channels will be available and now HBO and Cinemax have been locked in as well.

Services like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue have already been around for a long time and they offer a significant number of channels to subscribers. It certainly won’t be an easy road for the new DirecTV streaming services.

The DirecTV-branded online TV streaming services are scheduled to go live in the fourth quarter of this year.

2017 iPhone Again Said To Ditch Home Button

iPhone-6-review-12
The Home button has been constant on the iPhone ever since the first handset came out back in 2007. It has always been in the same place on all iPhones and yet there are rumors these days that the Home button’s days might be limited. Another report from a reputable publication suggests that Apple is going to do away with the Home button in the 2017 iPhone.

There’s a lot of focus on the iPhone that Apple is going to come out with next year. It’s going to be the iPhone’s 10th anniversary and it’s expected that Apple will be pulling out all the stops and will launch a truly revolutionary iPhone model in 2017.

Bloomberg reports that the 2017 iPhone is not going to feature a Home button. It’s iconic in its own right and is loved by many users. It will be interesting to see how users will react if Apple really does do away with the iconic Home button.

Another report published recently suggested that Apple will launch three different iPhones next year with the third being a premium model which will be sans Home button. This model is also said to feature the first OLED display for an iPhone which will be curved much like that of the
Galaxy S7. Samsung is reportedly the supplier for this display.

Even some design changes are rumored for the 2017 iPhone though not it’s completely known at this point in time what those changes might be. As expected, Apple has not yet dropped any hints about its 2017 iPhone. The iPhone due to be launched next month is expected to be more of an evolutionary update.

Sony And Panasonic Set Sights On 2020 Olympics For 8K TVs

japan display 8k
If you didn’t know where the next Olympics will take place then you certainly would have found out when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appeared at the closing ceremony in Rio last week dressed as Mario. The country’s biggest tech companies have now set their sights on the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo to properly commercialize 8K TVs.

Even 4K TVs are not as popular given that most content is still being offered in 1080p or 2K resolution. 8K is four times as sharp as 4K and a staggering 16 times sharper than 1080p, a high-res standard we are all quite familiar with.

It won’t be enough to just make 8K TVs, that will be the relatively easy part for companies like Sony and Panasonic, they will also need to work with broadcaster NHK to create new broadcast technology that’s capable of transmitting 8K video in all its glory.

Japanese broadcaster NHK has already tested 8K broadcasts with content from the Olympics this year. 8K TVs are hard to come by at this point in time and they are super expensive – like in the six figure range – so Sony and Panasonic have to bring the costs down to at least a level where consumers can consider splurging on an expensive TV.

They have four years to make all of that happen, commercialize 8K TVs at price points that are not outrageous and work with NHK to create new broadcast technology that can handle 8K video. Tokyo, Japan hosts the next Olympic Games in 2020.

Blizzard Games Can Now Be Streamed On Facebook Live

A couple of months ago, Blizzard announced a new partnership with Facebook which enables the game studio to integrate Facebook Live into all of its games on PC. This will allow the players to stream any Blizzard game on Facebook Live. Games like Overwatch, Diablo and Hearthstone can now be streamed easily directly to the live stream. This partnership was announced in June this year and it has finally gone live now.

Blizzard’s Facebook integration goes deeper than just enabling live streaming of games. It has already announced in the past that a Facebook login option will soon be added to all of its PC games in order to bring new social functionality in its games.

The live streaming feature is now available in all Blizzard games to players located in the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. Blizzard says that a complete roll out of this feature is expected to take place “soon.”

The ability to stream Blizzard games to Facebook Live is only limited to PC gamers at this point in time but the game studio is working on support for Mac. If you happen to own a Mac then you will have to wait for a while until Blizzard gets it up and running.
