Heroes fans had something to smile about when NBC announced that it would air a 13 episode mini-series following up the original four seasons. Not only that, creator Tim Kring returned as executive producer. But the fan service doesn't stop there. Phosphor Game Studio has released an immersive mobile game that hooks in to what's happening on TV.
The game, Hereos Reborn: Enigma, stars Dahlia, a young woman whose special powers are needed to solve various puzzles in first-person. Think Portal. You will use telekinesis and time shifting to make it through over 30 levels, all designed using Unreal Engine 4. Read More

For years now, customers who wanted to stream the likes of Showtime or HBO over the Internet have only had the option to do so if they paid for access in addition to an expensive cable plan.

During those hot months, Showtime announced it would let you do the same for $11―just not on Android yet. Read More
Companies generally hope to entice you to use their gadgets and networks to watch the likes of YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu. But Verizon Wireless isn't content to let you stream someone else's shows over its network using a phone it sold you. You should be watching its content.

Go90, a reference to the way you rotate your phone when watching video, is an eclectic mix of TV shows and YouTube clips. Read More

While we await the big event, Google actually has some of its own official news to share today. As it turns out, Google is raising the maximum apk file size on the Play Store from 50 MB to 100 MB.
