Cord cutters rejoice. Hulu have just announced that HuluPlus is now available on AppeTV. For $7.99 a month, billed to the subscriber's iTunes account, users can get access to content from top broadcast channels, such as ABC, NBC, FOX, The CW and Univision as well as many other content partners. Unfortunately, paying $7.99/month does not excuse you from advertisements; although, the shows claim to have “limited ads”.
Prior to the announcement, the only TV content available on AppleTV was via the iTunes store or Netflix. I’m sure Apple is getting a cut of the subscription revenue, but it’s bound to hurt sales of TV content on iTunes.
Eagerly, I fired up my AppleTV and gave it a try. Quality wasn’t bad: Hell’s Kitchen wasn’t quite as good as my over the air HD, and I can now get BBC America content, so I’m sold.
For those who want more than the paltry one week free trial on offer on AppleTV, follow this link to get two months free. Sign up and then simply select “I already have a HuluPlus subscription” when prompted on the AppleTV
Apple has long treated AppleTV as a hobby. Maybe things are changing in Cupertino.
While the holiday shopping season doesn't kick off till the fall, the behind-the-scenes tech preparations for the season are already heating up this summer — and those technology deployments should be even bigger and better this year.
And a recent study suggests that retailers will be spending even more on high-tech this year in an effort to steal a march on competitors and surf the bleeding edge of customer engagement technologies.
From basic POS system repairs to digital signage installations, retailers are tackling a variety of tech projects now in order to prepare for the holiday rush in Q4, according to tech service company OnForce. Because when the rush starts, these repairs and upgrades will mean downtime they can't afford, especially at the register. And their deadline isn't Black Friday — it's Halloween, which generated almost $7 billion in retail revenue last year.
And according to new research from the Computing Technology Industry Association, 63 percent of retailers expect to increase their spending on technology solutions in the coming year.
