Google is rolling out 'voice remote' in YouTube TV

Some Google apps get new features tied to updated versions, but others seem to spawn new things at random intervals when Google deems it appropriate.

YouTube TV finally lets you choose between DVR and VOD versions of your saved content

Google advertises YouTube TV with unlimited cloud DVR storage space, but it's not like that matters. More often than not, YouTube TV swaps out your "recorded" shows for the video-on-demand (VOD) version with unskippable ads. It's easily the most annoying thing about YouTube TV, but that's finally starting to change. Some channels now let you choose between different versions of your saved content.

Verizon launches its new Fios TV app, a better-looking version of its old FiOS Mobile app

Verizon launches its new Fios TV app, a better-looking version of its old FiOS Mobile app

I'm a fairly satisfied Verizon Fios customer with a basic internet and TV package. Sure, it helps that the man who installed our setup somehow gave us a handful of channels we weren't supposed to get (shh), but I've come to prefer it over any of the previous providers I've endured. But one thing I haven't taken advantage of yet is the Verizon FiOS Mobile app, probably because I'm still a bit scarred by visions of the atrocious bloatware defecating all over my phones when I was a Verizon Wireless customer. Well, Verizon has just released a new app for Fios TV customers simply called Fios TV.

YouTube TV gets a customizable live channel guide screen

Google sometimes adds new features to apps via updates with changelogs and whatnot. Other times, new features just magically appear one day. That seems to be the case with a new YouTube TV feature. You can now edit your live channel guide to hide what you don't watch and move the other channels around.

[Update: Adding SportsNet New York, too] YouTube TV learns not to spoil the game, expands to Charleston, WV and SC

Spoilers suck. Whether you're enjoying some books and the TV series gets ahead of itself (Game of Thrones, you're dead to me), or your friends just can't resist revealing the twist at the end of a good movie, spoilers seriously ruin your appreciation for something. It's about the journey as much as the destination, right? So sportsball fans that subscribe to YouTube TV can now configure for scores to be hidden in the YouTube TV interface.

Leaked documents reveal how video is paying off big for Amazon

Leaked documents reveal how video is paying off big for Amazon

In 2016, Jeff Bezos said of Amazon’s streaming video offerings, “When we win a Golden Globe, it helps us sell more shoes.” This was his way of explaining how the enormous amount of money and resources Amazon was pouring into its original prestige programming could lure customers into the warm embrace of its retail business. But until now, we had to take Bezos’s assertion on faith. I mean, he is the richest man in the world, after all. He must know something. Well, thanks to a scoop by Reuters, we now have a more concrete idea of what Prime Video really means for Amazon’s bottom line: 5 million new customers.
