The amount of options for consuming entertainment on your television these days seems endless. Aside from traditional cable and satellite services, you’ve got streaming options from Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. Even ala carte style is making a push with Sling TV and of course there is traditional over-the-air channels. Unfortunately, there isn’t really a viable option for bringing all of these things together.

Mohu has attempted to change that with its Channels device, which takes OTA network channels and combines them with a number of streaming services in one package. If it sounds like a lot to bring together, you’re right, it is. Mohu has set out to combine all of these viewing options. I’ve spent the last few months tinkering with this system and it’s certainly worth talking about… expand full story

Update (5/20 1:30pm): Hulu has announced that it will have the full catalog of Seinfeld available on June 24th.

So what’s the deal with online video streaming? Apparently it’s worth upwards of $180 million, in the case of Seinfeld. According to various reports, that’s how much Hulu is paying to bring every episode of the popular 90’s sitcom to its streaming service. Yada Yada Yada, you know the rest, stream it for $8 a month and you’ll have access to the best show in the history of television, unless you can double dip with a friend and mooch on their subscription then all signs point to yes!

But if you’d rather skip on the subscription costs and just own the series out right? Well, Amazon offers the entire Seinfeld collection for $65 on DVD – a sponge-worthy deal indeed. At that price, $180 million looks like a pretty big matzo ball hanging out there.

Whether you’re grabbing all 180 episodes at Amazon or jumping on a Hulu Plus subscription, you can rest easy knowing that you’re a 1/3 of the way closer to the trifecta.

Giddy up.

Starting in February, TiVo will be offering a new service for its users called OnePass that will strive to make binge watching easier than ever. The goal here is to put all of the available options of watching a complete season of a show in one place, in this instance the My Shows folder on your TiVo device. TiVo’s latest DVR devices have the ability to stream from services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus putting a larger supply of shows at your fingertips.

TiVo’s new OnePass service takes these options into account when searching out all the ways to catch up on a whole season. After investigating all of the streaming, live TV and other on demand options, TiVo will then list out the entire season within the My Shows folder. This is a particular strength of this offering in comparison to the Apple TV which does not feature universal search.

The new OnePass service from TiVo will be available in February on Roamio and TiVo Mini devices at no extra charge. Additionally, the service will also be available for via the iOS app next month and is expected for Android in March.
