New TuneIn Premium Service Offers Unlimited Audiobooks, Over 600 Commercial-Free Music Stations, Live Coverage Of All MLB Games, And More For $8 A Month

You've probably heard of TuneIn. It's that app that some kids these days think of as the radio (not to be confused with the static that old people are still able to get their cars to produce). TuneIn lets you stream stations from all over the world, regardless of how far outside of their coverage area you may be.

Now the company is rolling out TuneIn Premium for $7.99 a month. For your money, you get access to over 40,000 audiobooks. You know, because paying for novels individually has apparently become old-school.

TuneIn Premium also comes with over 600 commercial-free music stations.

[Update: And Singapore] Google Play Movies Now Shows Flicks In Indonesia And Malaysia

Streaming movies from Google Play is rather nice. I sort of scoffed at the feature at first, wondering why I'd want to spend that much money to rent a movie when I could wait and buy a physical copy later. But hey, $3 to $5 really isn't that much compared to watching a film in theaters, and it lets you see a movie much sooner than waiting for the DVD version to drop in price.

The thing is, Play Movies isn't available all over the world.

The New JustWatch Android App Lets You See Which TV Shows And Movies Are Streaming Where

Don't think I'll find where a show is available online? Just watch me. There's an app or two for that, and now that JustWatch has brought its search engine to Android and iOS, there's another one. And it's capable of searching through Amazon Instant Video, Crackle, HBO Now, Hulu, iTunes, Netflix, Play Movies, PlayStation, Showtime, Vudu, Xbox, and a couple other online streaming services.

JustWatch's grid layout looks like those of the services it interacts with, and it feels like a natural companion, like the modern-day equivalent of a TV guide. You can create a watchlist without having to create an account or provide any credentials.

Hulu May Be Getting A Completely Commercial-Free Subscription Option This Fall - Could Cost $12-14 A Month

According to The Wall Street Journal, American TV streaming giant Hulu is considering launching a version of its service that will contain no commercials at all. The Journal's sources claim it will cost between $12 and $14 a month, and could launch as soon as this fall.

Hulu is jointly-owned by Fox, Disney, and Comcast (shiver) - companies with very heavily vested interests in the survival of the existing cable and satellite TV regimes. Why, then, would Hulu seek to cut more cables by offering an enticing ad-free subscription option? The answer is almost certainly growth. Netflix has more than seven times the number of subscribers as Hulu (to be fair, Netflix is offered in other countries).

[Update: It's Live] You Will Soon Be Able To Add Showtime To Your Hulu Subscription For An Extra $9 A Month

Watching Hulu already feels more like cable than Netflix. You have access to shows shortly after they air, and you still have to sit through commercials. Starting next month, you will also be able to expand your subscription with premium content.

Hulu is partnering with Showtime to let subscribers stream the latter's large selection of shows. But the option to do so will cost more than Hulu itself. After a 30 day free trial, you will have to pay $9 on top of your $8 Hulu subscription.

Some musicians make their debuts on the web. Others embrace online stores as a new revenue stream. A number have decried digital downloads and online streaming as detrimental to the music experience. AC/DC has been one of the last and most well-known holdouts.

The hard rock band formed in the 70s, decades before the Internet fundamentally altered the way music gets distributed. The members didn't allow its albums on iTunes until 2012, and it's only now that the group is willing to play along with music streaming services.
