Love The Simpsons? You Must Download Simpsons World



I was not able to watch every single episode of The Simpsons when it came on FXX. Like most adults we have jobs and my TiVo didn’t have enough to support 25 years. Yes, I said TiVo.  Luckily the folks over at Fox recognized this and have teamed up with Gracie Films to create Simpsons World. No, it’s not an interactive version of Matt Groening’s 20th Anniversary book. The app Simpsons World is powered by FXNOW. With it you will be able to watch every single episode of the Simpsons at  your leisure.


 The app is available on today. After you watch all the episodes you will feel like a changed man or woman. The goodness does not stop there either. You can make Simpsons playlists. You can search to find that moment you want to relive again. Thus making your own greatest hits. Recently aired episodes will be added the day after they air. Now for the bad news. You must be a cable subscriber to use the app.

HBO is going cableless. No subscription needed



You have waited long enough. The time has come for cord cutters to be free of one of the last few obstacles in the way of cableless bliss. HBO’s CEO Richard Plepler has confirmed that the company will start selling a digital version of its service in 2015. The best part is the service won’t require a pay-TV subscription. Seems that Netflix getting all those awards for its shows and building a massive subscriber base is starting to name the network nervous.




“That is a large and growing opportunity that should no longer be left untapped. It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO.

“So, in 2015, we will launch a stand-alone, over-the-top, HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners.  And, we will explore models with new partners.  All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them.” ~HBO CEO Richard Plepler
