Roku Rumor

And, speaking of Rokus… there is a rumor in Cord Cutting circles that it may soon be possible to watch Roku content off of the Roku app on your phone. If so, that would be a huge deal! A lot of folks watch YouTube on their phones, and if Roku channels could be seen via a phone, that would be amazing! We will see if this is just “pie in the sky” or the real thing, but hey… it would be very cool!

Don’t Get Caught in a Roku Activation Scam!

Roku LogoRoku boxes don’t require “activation!” Don’t let anyone tell you they do! This gets worse when people get them as Christmas presents! Here’s a head’s up from Cord Cutters News:

‘When my friend upgraded from a Roku streaming stick to a Roku Ultra, she had to pay an activation fee. Is this now required for all Rokus?’

Streaming boxes and sticks like Roku are likely to be popular gifts this holiday season. Unfortunately as the popularity of cord cutting increases, so have the number of scams seeking to target less savvy consumers.

Starting in mid-2017 we began to hear reports directly from Tablo customers and other sources in the cord-cutting community saying an official-looking website required them to fork over credit card information to activate their Roku.

Roku does not nor has ever required users to pay fees for setup, activation, or tech support.

Once you purchase your Roku you can use it right out of the box with no additional payments required – unless you’re wanting to hook up subscription-based streaming services like Netflix. And in that case, you’d be paying Netflix, not Roku.

If you want to avoid these ‘scam’ websites, it’s best to contact the manufacturer of your cord cutting device directly or visit an official corporate website for help. Both pieces of information should be on the device’s box or in the documentation that comes with it.”

Disney + is the Name of the New Disney Streaming Service

Mickey MouseGiven they own all the Marvel content, I suspect this will be a popular streaming service.

Disney’s new Netflix rival will be called Disney+ and launch late 2019

CNBC – By: Michelle Castillo – “Disney’s new streaming service will be called Disney+ and launch in late 2019, CEO Bob Iger announced on the company’s earnings call Thursday.

The company announced in August 2017 it would pull all its movies from Netflix in 2019, and start its own streaming offering for its past titles. Disney also purchased Fox for $71.3 billion in cash and stock, further bolstering its library.

The service will also feature new, original shows and movies, including original Marvel and Star Wars series. Marvel fan favorite character Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, will get an original series on the Disney+ service. A prequel series to Star Wars movie ‘Rogue One’ about the character Cassian Andor, portrayed by Diego Luna, will also call the service home.

Other original shows and movies include a rebooted version of The High School Musical franchise. It will also be a hub for animated content, including the next season of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ and an new original animated series based on Pixar’s ‘Monsters Inc.’ Exclusive movies include ‘Noel,’ a Christmas movie about Santa’s daughter played by Anna Kendrick, and ‘Togo,’ a movie about the 1925 Nome Serum Run starring William DaFoe.

Disney launched a placeholder website for Disney+ that shows off logos of brands like Pixar, National Geographic and Marvel.

Disney’s other streaming service, sports-centered ESPN+, reached 1 million paid subscribers in just five months.

The company reported its fourth-quarter earnings after the bell on Thursday. Shares went up as much as 2 percent after beating earnings and revenue estimates.”
