sony-playstation-vue-hdtv

Update (3/27 5:30pm): Just in time for the Mad Men season premiere, PlatStation Vue has added the AMC family of networks to its service. This includes AMC, WEtv, IFC, and Sundance. The former of which are included in all packages, while the latter can be found in the Core and Elite packages.

It has been a big week for internet television. Sling TV made its way to the Xbox One and Apple appears closer than ever to providing its own streaming television service. We know what Sling has to offer, while Apple is still negotiating.

Today, Sony has released its PlayStation Vue streaming television service in select cities across the United States. While it offers a much more comprehensive list of channels than Sling TV, there are a few reasons to think twice before diving in.

Pebble_watch_trio_group_04

Now that all the Apple Watch details are laid out for consumers, there is a big choice to be made for those interested in purchasing a timepiece with smart functionality. The Apple Watch will start at $349, with most of our readers electing for a $400 model, although early adoption levels seem to be low. If you’re thinking that a lower priced watch is more appropriate, it looks like you’re not alone. With the Pebble Time making a timely appearance on Kickstarter, many have chosen to back the lower priced option. In fact, following the Apple Watch keynote, Pebble saw a 167% funding increase.

As companies start capitalizing on the Apple Watch opportunity, leather bands hit Amazon for $10

apple-watch-ulak-replacement-band(ULAK Apple Watch band)

Apple is smart. By pitching the Apple Watch as a fashion accessory as much as (or possibly more) than an extension of personal technology, the company has put itself in a position to market and sell various (overpriced) accessory/replacement bands.

Everyone was prepared for the Apple Watch Edition to be priced sky-high, but I think everyone had some level of sticker shock when it was revealed that bands would be going for upwards of $450. This pricing scheme has left the door wide-open for third party accessory makers to cash in on the Apple Watch… Read more
