    Are Antenna TVs Making A Comeback?

    Eight million people are expected to cut the cord in 2018, according to research firm eMarketer, in part because of advanced streaming services, and in part because of high monthly bills. Yet another growing alternative to cable and satellite is as old as television itself: over-the-air antennas. Tom McGlynn runs Mr. Free HDTV Man, one of several TV antenna installation companies in the Twin Cities. He says he’s getting so many requests, he can’t keep up.

    Roku Premiere doles out 4K HDR streaming for just $40

    By now you're probably aware of Roku. It's a company that creates streaming video players -- you know, little devices that play Netflix and YouTube on your TV -- as well as an operating system for Smart TVs. We like Roku streamers and TVs a lot here at CNET. Most are cheap and good. Now the company has two new streaming players -- the sub-$50 Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere Plus. And if history is any indication, we'll like them even more. That's because they seem just good as existing players, and they're cheaper than ever.

Netflix grabbed Arrested Development (for better or worse), Amazon picked up The Expanse. Now Variety reports that Hulu is going for an even deeper cut: Veronica Mars.

    The case for combining live TV streaming services

    Of all the attacks on cord-cutting that we’ve heard over the years, the most common is what I call the “gee whiz” argument: The idea that if you subscribe to a bunch of streaming video services, then gee whiz, the cost of all those subscriptions really adds up. This obvious point is routinely presented as an epiphany by cord-cutting naysayers, none of whom seem to realize that being able to pick and choose is the entire point of ditching cable.
