Yet another major wireless carrier in the United States is making a move to expand into digital media. Sprint has recently announced this week that it has purchased one third of Tidal, the music streaming subscription service owned by rap superstar Jay Z and other music recording stars. Sure, Sprint’s move may not be as big as Verizon Wireless’ and AT&T’s, but it is a significant one nonetheless.
Facebook may not have beaten YouTube to deploying 4K 360 live streaming, but it did get the jump on Twitter’s Periscope. This week, the biggest social media platform in the planet officially launched initial support for 360 degree live streams.
More than a year ago, Netflix had decided to include an in-app subscription feature in its app for iOS powered mobile devices, and that move might have contributed immensely in its growing popularity ever since. Indeed during the last month, the app had reached the Top Grossing chart for the first time, landing at number nine. Recently, Netflix’s app adds another reason to celebrate, for it has become the top grossing app for iPhone devices in all of the United States.
AT&T officially launched its new DirecTV Now service yesterday, debuting a service that brings over a hundred channels for a starting price of $35. This latest offering from the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States streams over the world wide web, can function on a wide range of devices, including smartphones and tablet devices, and does not affect the mobile data allowances of AT&T subscribers.
Finally. Video streaming giant Netflix has, at long last, decided to let people download and watch its content offline. In other words, users can now enjoy watching Orange is the New Black or other favorite TV shows and movies on their smartphones and tablet devices even without an existing web connection. The company is making this option available to all customers who have already received the latest Netflix update on their compatible smartphone or table. For those not in the know, that would mean any handset that runs on either Android 4.4.2 or newer version, or iOS 8.0 or newer.
AT&T has officially launched its new DirecTV Now service. This latest offering from the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States offers a total of four programming tiers starting at $35 a month which already delivers 60 channels.
AT&T held a high profile event recently in order to formally introduce DirecTV Now, which will be going live on Wednesday November 30th with a price of $35 a month for access to 60 channels. The DirecTV Now service will be made available to view on a wide range of connected devices and platforms, most especially mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
With the official unveiling of its newest feature, Stream Saver, it appears that the second biggest wireless carrier in America is looking to allow its subscribers to reduce their data consumption by watching video content in 480p on mobile devices.
