Flash: Netflix comes to Dish TV's set-top boxes
 
Not all conventional TV providers are at odds with Netflix. Dish just announced that its second-generation Hopper DVRs (and eventually Joeys) are getting an integrated Netflix app starting today. Yes, you can now jump from satellite broadcasts to internet streaming without switching devices. The interface will be familiar if you've used Netflix elsewhere, but Dish hopes to one day integrate Netflix's library into search results -- you could find House of Cards sitting next to recordings and Dish's own internet services....

Netflix says offline playback is 'never going to happen'
 
(engadget.com) - Ever since Netflix mistakenly said that offline viewing would come to Honeycomb tablets, we've waited (and opined) for the moment when it'd happen. Unfortunately, the streaming company is turning a blind eye to our needs as its head of communications saying that cached playback is "never going to happen." In an interview with TechRadar, Cliff Edwards said that the feature is a "short term fix for a bigger problem," namely a lack of high-speed WiFi in certain places. As far as he's concerned, we're not far away from having ubiquitous internet wherever we dare to tread....

NBC will stream live broadcasts if you pay for regular TV
 
(engadget.com) - If you've wanted to watch NBC's live broadcasts away from home, you're in luck... more or less. The media giant is offering live TV streams on its website starting today, and mobile app viewing is due in early 2015. Unfortunately, it's not the independent service you may be looking for. Unlike CBS and HBO, you'll need a conventional TV subscription (as with WatchABC) to tune in online -- not surprisingly, Comcast (NBC's parent) would like to keep you paying for cable programming....

Women's basketball recruiter sanctioned for sharing a Netflix account
 
(engadget.com) - When the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) involves itself with regulating over a thousand sports teams, organizations and athletes, it's normally a big deal - especially when deal-makers are looking to offer all kinds of incentives for the best young players. Then there's Southeast Missouri State, whose former assistant coach has violated rules by talking to recruits in quiet season, in addition to offering water bottles and shirts for a local baseball camp. The final disgraceful act? (Assistant coach Ben Coomes left the school this summer after these violations happened.) He apparently gave recruits the login details to his Netflix account, which meant they could use the streaming service without paying, the monsters....

HBO Go is on Amazon's Fire TV now, Fire TV stick soon
 
(engadget.com) - It only took seven or so months since it was first announced, but HBO Go is now available on Amazon's Fire TV (along with SlingPlayer). Owners of the Fire TV Stick dongle will have to wait until this spring for access, but since they're probably Amazon Prime subscribers too, at least they have plenty of older HBO shows to stream in the meantime.....

Comcast, Roku cut a deal for HBO Go and Showtime streaming
 
(engadget.com) - On the same day HBO announced its streaming service is on the Amazon Fire TV, Roku has news of its own. Re/code found an FCC filing revealing that the media streamer folks have come to an agreement with Comcast. That means the cable giant's customers will finally be able to use HBO Go and Showtime Anytime on Roku media streamers, after years of the apps refusing to authenticate, making an ugly joke of the "TV Everywhere" slogan.....
