How to Google all the streaming services that have a movie or TV series

It's been over a year since the Google Play Store added a handy — and selfless — feature where it would tell you which online streaming services had the movie or TV series you were looking for. Perhaps you didn't want to buy them on Play Movies and preferred to watch them on Netflix for which you already have a subscription, or perhaps you wanted to watch something but didn't know which services had it. That same feature began surfacing inside Google Search a few months ago, but seems to now be rolling out more widely and to many more countries.

MoviePass announces new annual plan, costs nearly as much as monthly plan but includes a free year of Fandor

If you're a frequent patron of your local cinemas, you've likely heard of MoviePass, the service that gives you a movie theater ticket a day (with restrictions, of course) for a monthly cost. If you haven't heard of the service before or aren't generally interested in enduring the inconveniences involved with going to a theater, maybe this will pique your interest: MoviePass has just announced a new annual plan that works out to a slight savings of $0.34 a month. MoviePass is disingenuously claiming this new plan works out to $7.95 per month, but the $19.95 processing fee pushes it up to $9.61 a month.

PlayStation Vue expands to Android TV today, PC and Mac web support coming soon

Sony just announced today that its PlayStation Vue streaming service is coming to Android TV. If you do not know what Vue is, it might just seem like another streaming option. It is actually more akin to Dish's Sling TV with live TV channels, sports networks, and HBO and Showtime across a variety of price tiers. Additionally, the "PlayStation" moniker might give the impression of requiring Sony's PlayStation 4 game console — it actually doesn't. For all of the cord cutters out there, this is just another good option in a growing market.

Rumor: Amazon Realizes All The Cool Kids Have Subscription Music Services, Now Building Its Own

Amazon is apparently hoping the third time's a charm when it comes to music services, at least if a new rumor from Reuters is to be believed (which, yeah, it probably should be). According to Reuters, Amazon will launch a $9.99 per month music subscription service to compete with the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Play Music, and others.

If you remember, Amazon MP3 was actually Android's stock internet music player back in the day, until Amazon and Google had a falling out over Fire OS that to this day has lingered with consequences for consumers, like Android TV not having Amazon Instant Video.
