Hulu’s new live TV streaming service

Hulu's new live TV streaming service

Last week, we had the honor to meet with executives from Hulu for a look at their new Hulu Live service. This new service will bring live TV to Hulu’s on-demand services with live channels from companies like CBS, Disney, Fox and more.

We were able to get a full look at the new Hulu Live service and were even able to talk with some of the main people behind it. From what we have seen, Hulu Live is something that will make cord cutters who use other services take note. It will also cause cable subscribers to give cord cutting a second look.

So why were we so impressed? Here are a few reasons Hulu Live stood out.

Here’s what we’ve been up to in C’ville

Field cabinet serving Redfields and Eagles Landing
Ting has strung much of the fiber in C’ville on poles, but whenever the opportunity presents (ex. new construction), we like to go underground. This field cabinet serves both Eagles Landing and Redfields.

Ongoing and upcoming construction

It may be cold outside, but that hasn’t slowed our construction team down in the least!


We’re close to completing the process of laying fiber in the Redfields neighborhood. Construction started late last fall and we’ve worked hard throughout the winter. Just recently, we spliced in the field cabinet. That means power is on the way very soon!

For every pre-order in this neighborhood, Ting will happily donate $25 to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, which was chosen by the Redfields Homeowners’ Association. Place your pre-order using this link to ensure that your pre-order will be counted toward helping the food bank provide healthy, nutritious food to Blue Ridge area families.

Eagles Landing

Good news for residents of Eagles Landing: we’ve been making great progress with the fiber network construction and we’re going to begin lighting up apartments this month! Ting fiber will be included with tenancy, among other Ting-friendly properties in Charlottesville.


The neighborhood of Fontana is currently in the engineering phase. We hope to go live sometime in the late spring of this year; please stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, if you live in this area, pre-order to let us know you’re interested.


We’re up and operating in some areas of Charlottesville already so if you’re wondering if we’ve made it to your neck of the woods, check your address. If we haven’t reached your neighborhood yet, pre-order to let us know you’re interested. You’ll get a discount on the install fee and will be among the first in line for an installation appointment once we arrive.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for construction news and updates.

The Nvidia Shield has long been the flagship player for Google’s Android TV platform. Now, Nvidia has released a new second generation Nvidia Shield. It has come a long way from its start when it offered just 400 apps compared to the thousands of apps and services it now offers.

Let’s take a look at what is new and what is improved in the second generation Nvidia Shield.

Fire TV and AirTV – two devices that will change cord cutting forever

A look at two new devices

The 2017 Consumers Electronic Show was a huge year for cord cutting. We already talked about some of the biggest cord cutting announcements of 2017 that were made at the show in last week’s post.

Two of the new devices introduced at the show are so outstanding that we want to present an in-depth look at them.

Both Amazon and Sling TV released new lines of streaming media players — Amazon, in the form of a line of new smart TVs with built-in Fire TV — and Sling TV, in the form of a new streaming media player that combines the best of Sling TV, Netflix and over-the-air channels all in one box called AirTV.

Let’s take a close look at the new Fire TV Edition Smart TVs and the new AirTV streaming media player.

A cord cutter’s look at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017

Consumer Electronics Show

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the biggest tech trade shows in the world, with over 160,000 people descending on Las Vegas every January to get a look at what will be new, hot, and exciting this year.

We were lucky enough to be in attendance this year and were able to meet with a wide range of representatives from companies like Sling TV, Mohu Antennas, NewsOn, Tablo and many others.

We’re tremendously excited about the following products appearing at CES this year that are specifically for cord cutters.
