    Here's something that is slightly Off Topic, but still tech related...

    According to sources in the know, we have a few more details regarding the teased HBO streaming movie service confirmed previously. The new service will reportedly be called HBO Now and will use new technology to make sure that people don't experience hiccups and outages while binge watching Game of Thrones.

    Speaking of Game of Thrones, the source also confirmed that HBO plans to launch the service at the same time that the new Game of Thrones season 5 hits. This simply confirms previous intel on the subject. Another confirmation of previous rumors suggests the stand-alone (no cable required) service will be $15 dollars per month.

    The only other new thing to report is that Apple is supposedly heavily courting HBO to work out a deal where they can offer the HBO Now service on the Apple TV. Supposedly, HBO is keen on the idea, but they also want to offer the service on as many other TV boxes as possible including: Roku, Xbox, Amazon and PlayStation.

    Ohhhh... so many ways to fire up Game of Thrones for a weekend!!! April 12th cannot come fast enough!

    Good news for cord cutters. $15 a month isn't cheap though and that amount per month will get you both Netflix and Hulu Plus. The success of this IMO will depend on how easily or quickly the shows are available through disc rentals and Netflix or where ever else.

    Me and my family are patient and don't have to watch shows right when they air. Not at all. We can wait. Some folks have to watch live. We'll see how this shakes out.
