August 30th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Rob is out this week from a bad case of drilling. Or being drilled. We’re not sure. Tom apologizes for not getting this podcast up in time to get your questions for Val. You’ll have to stick around to the end to understand what we’re talking about. This week, Chromecast kills AnyCast but gets on iOS. A preliminary review of the V-MODA Crossfade M-100 and the BoomPro Mics (used for this podcast). Time Warner and CBS are still fighting but now TW has pulled out an option that literally no one could have predicted. The new Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 Projector – $999 for a dedicated home theater projector? Call Tom impressed. An interesting listener problem with an unlikely fix. Batflect – Tom and Liz weigh in. This week’s recommendations – a couple of movies. Thanks for listening. Check out our new Facebook Page.

    I realize you guys think that getting the networks over the air facilitates cord cutting. I can assure you that the cable companies don’t. They would much refer the situation where everyone got the networks over the air, since they would save a fortune and wouldn’t lose the customers who like non-network fare, premium channels, and PPV. Note that this wasn’t the case at the dawn of cable, before retransmission consent, where they got the networks for free. But now that they have to pay for them, they’d much rather you got the networks over the air, drop cable prices a lot, and save mucho bucks for both them and their customers. I think they’ve studied this question pretty intently, and aren’t worried about giving out antennas at all.

    A proof of this proposition comes from what CBS is saying. Note that they are NOT saying that you can get CBS over-the-air. They are running ads (which can only be picked up by people who aren’t TWC subscribers) which say: “Your friends with TWC are losing CBS– tell them they can go to FIOS, DirecTV or Dish.” Nary a word about OTA.
