If you're waiting for newer fare -- by which we mean Game of Thrones -- you'll be disappointed, but seasons of HBO's other new shows, like True Blood and Veep will arrive roughly three years after they're first broadcast....

Dish looking to debut Internet TV service this summer -Bloomberg
 
(Reuters) - Dish Network Corp, the No. 2 U.S. satellite TV provider, is looking to debut internet TV service this summer, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Watch 80 year's worth of bizarre and historic moments thanks to British Pathé
 
Between 1896 and 1976, British Pathé documented the everyday lives of Britons and events around the world with its pioneering newsreels.

Roku 3 update lets you search for movies and more with a smartphone
 
Roku baked its comprehensive search feature into its mobile apps last month, but only folks who used it with the firm's HDMI Streaming Stick have been able to enjoy life without wielding a remote to hunt and peck for letters. Starting today, however, more of the outfit's hardware is getting some love: an update is trickling out to Roku 3 devices that'll enable the search feature with the apps.
 
Everyone should have the update on their Roku 3's by April 22, with other devices in the lineup getting the enhancement in the coming weeks.
