Watching TV doesn't mean what it used to. Not only can you choose which streaming services to commit to, but you now have multiple ways to subscribe to them. Amazon is adding another option for the likes of Showtime and Starz via its new Streaming Partners Program. Read More
Google has decided to bless us with some free stuff, as they are apt to do. This time, you can own each of 12 episodes of shows on Comedy Central by just heading over there and grabbing them, free of charge. Each episode comes from a different program, which is probably just the network trying to give people a reason to get familiar with their offerings. Google, on the other hand, wants to remind you that the Play Store is a good option to buy this sort of thing.
Here's what's on offer:
- Key & Peele, Season 4 - Episode 1: "Alien Imposters"
- Big Time in Hollywood, FL, Season 1 - Episode 1: "Severance"
- Nathan For You, Season 1 - Episode 1: "Yogurt Shop/Pizzeria"
- Kroll Show, Season 3 - Episode 1: "Gigolo H-O-R-S-E"
- Drunk History, Season 1 - Episode 1: "Washington D.C."

These apps are just two in a wave of apps that have just learned how to play nicely with Chromecast. Read More

The app can toss up a TV schedule if you just want to know what's coming up next.
A TV subscription is required for most of the content, though the Play Store page says a login isn't required to view the latest episodes. I haven't had any luck getting shows to stream without a cable subscription, but the app's still young enough for this to possibly be a kink. Read More
