New to Netflix in August: Rocky I-V, Mad Max, Mission Blue, much more

rocky1

August is proving to be a big month over at Netflix, as the the popular content streaming service continues to add new titles each month.

Perhaps none bigger than the addition of all of the Rocky films, which were previously unavailable for streaming. Another classic film coming to Netflix this month will be Mad Max, the classic 1970’s Mel Gibson tough-guy film. In addition, Netflix will be offering recently released films, such as Mission Blue, the popular documentary that highlights the efforts being made around the world to save the ocean, its resources and beautiful sanctuaries.

You can pick up a free trial, download the iOS or Android (Google Play/Amazon) app to get started today.

Update (7/6 7:30am): This promotion is now live via Target online and Target stores.

Last month Target set the deal world ablaze with its $199 iPad mini deal. This major retailer looks primed to once again launch an unprecedented iPad sale.

According to a leaked ad scan that has shown up on several online forums and blogs, starting this Sunday July 6th, Target will offer free $100 gift cards with the purchase of an iPad Air or iPad with Retina display. The ad only mentions 16GB capacities of both models, but also states “other Wi-Fi models available” for iPad Air, so this discount may apply to more configurations beyond 16GB. We won’t know for sure until the deal page goes live later this weekend.

You can also save 10% on all iTunes gift cards and $10 on an Apple TV. Target is also besting Walmart’s recent iPhone promotion by offering a 5s for $100 with a free $20 gift card.

We have frequently seen the iPad Air drop to $400 via eBay Daily Deals, but this is the first time we have seen a current generation iPad promotion of this caliber from a major retailer.

REDcard holders can save an additional 5% on top of all advertised prices.

Roku announces refreshed lineup of devices starting at $50: Roku LT, Roku 1 and Roku 2

Roku LT-Roku 1-Roku 2-new models-announced-01Roku has just announced a refreshed line up of devices, that includes updated models of its lower end streaming boxes. While the Roku 3 has been leading the way in the set-top box market place alongside the Apple TV, today the company announced the new Roku LT as well as the Roku 1 and Roku 2 which will replace the Roku HD and Roku 2 XD (via Wired).

The new models will come along with all the content the boxes normally come with, including access to over 1000 different content channels or apps from within the Roku Channel Store. With access to apps like Amazon Instant Video and Crackle, many feel this is where the platform carries an interesting advantage over Apple TV.

Another interesting addition to the system is the M-Go video service partnership the company has now announced. It appears as though Roku is stepping into the content space without having to implement its own content service. With M-Go, users can rent or purchase movies and TV Shows with the purchases connected to your existing Roku account.

Roku LT-Roku 1-Roku 2-M-Go-movies-01

Pre-orders are available now for the new Roku boxes on the official site and through Amazon, with units expected to hit store shelves in October. The 720p Roku LT starts at $50, the 1080p Roku 1 will be available for $60 and the $80 Roku 2 comes with 1080p, dual-band wireless options, and a slick little headphone jack in the remote. Even though the new models don’t come with the motion-control remote and the Ethernet port like the Roku 3 (which is currently $5 off on Amazon), the company has added composite input options to make up for it.
