More Fox Shows Coming to Netflix, Including 'The Wonder Years'

The Netflix library just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Today the company announced that it struck a deal with Fox to bring older shows like 'The Wonder Years' (huzzah!) and 'Ally McBeal' (meh) to the streaming media service, as well as more recent titles like 'Glee' and the FX series 'Sons of Anarchy.' Fox will also be bringing "library" movies to Netflix after their pay-TV licenses expire....

Cablevision and Fox Resolve Dispute (For Now), Still Dislike Each Other

The lengthy standoff between News Corp. and Cablevision has finally come to a close -- and just in time for the World Series. On Saturday night, the Fox network suddenly returned to some three million living rooms serviced by Cablevision, effectively ending a blackout that had begun on October 16th. The dispute had essentially boiled down to money; News Corp. wanted Cablevision to pay higher r...

FOX-Cablevision Standoff Blocks Fans From Watching World Series

The drama between FOX, its parent company News Corp and Cablevision continues to drag on. Cablevision's iO Digital Cable customers have been deprived of FOX programing for about two weeks, but it seems that people have, so far, survived without Glenn Beck and 'The Simpsons.' But, now, the standoff over broadcasting fees is encroaching on the World Series, and consumers simply won't stand for that....

Networks Blocking Google TV, Ruining Our Good Time

Our review unit hasn't even arrived yet and the networks are already raining on the Google TV parade. ABC, CBS and NBC are blocking Sony and Logitech devices packing Google's TV-oriented implementation of Android from streaming television shows. The appeal of Google TV is the ability to access streaming video from the Web, but limiting the content it can stream also limits our interest. The networ...

FCC Tweets National Championship Game During Fox, Cablevision Dispute

On Oct. 15th, Fox Television and Cablevision failed to renew a contractual agreement about the broadcasting rights to Fox affiliates WNYW, WWOR and WTXF. Once the deadline to renew passed, Cablevision subscribers lost access to those local Fox channels, so now the Federal Communications Commission apparently feels obligated to intervene. Instead of mediating or doling out some form of punishme...

Does 'NBA Jam' Have a Liberal Bias? FOX News Thinks It Might

We, like most good Americans, rely on FOX News to let us know which media outlets to trust (i.e., FOX News), and which agenda-driven sources we should disregard as pawns of the vast left-wing conspiracy (i.e., everything else). Yet, as much as we've enjoyed existing within Rupert Murdoch's vacuum of objectivity, we couldn't help but raise a few eyebrows when our guiding light of journalistic inte...

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to Make 'Simpsons' Cameo This Fall

It can be argued that the true measure of celebrity is whether or not a person has made a cameo on 'The Simpsons.' After all, just look at a few of the names who've appeared on the show during its 21-year-run on Fox. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has more than 500 million "friends," a movie based on his life coming out this fall and, according to New York Magazine, a featured role in an episod...

'The Box,' Starring Robots and Unicorns, Is Spurring a Hollywood Bidding War

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a bidding war broke out Wednesday over a sci-fi short film that was made as part of an experiment sponsored by Phillips called Parallel Lines, in which the electronics giant challenged five filmmakers to each make a short film using set pieces of dialogue. So what's the short film that has studio executives tearing at each others' throats? Titled 'The Gift,' t...

Fox, Google and Yahoo! Ad Networks Distribute Malware

Malware purveyors are increasingly turning to ad networks to (unwittingly) infect users computers, rather than taking the time and effort to hack individual Web sites. They've now opted to hijack some of the ads that you see served across the Web. Security firm Avast discovered an attack, which has infected every major ad serving network, that infects computers the moment the ad is loaded -- no u...

'Family Guy' Teams With Microsoft for Windows 7 TV Extravaganza

To mixed reviews, Microsoft tried being all fluffy and sweet while advertising its new operating system. Now, it's time for Plan B -- comedy. Enter 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane and Alex Borstein (a.k.a. Lois Griffin), who agreed to produce a Microsoft-sponsored variety show. The comedy extravaganza/marketing ploy will air November 8th on FOX, a couple weeks after Microsoft releases Windows...

'Texts From Last Night' to Become Fox TV Show

'Texts From Last Night' was funny, at first. But, when friends started posting text messages from the Web site on our Facebook page, it became annoying. Then, the user-generated site, which is full of embarrassing admissions sent late at night, became a full-scale phenomenon -- spawning an iPhone application, a Twitter page, an online store, and now, a television show -- all much to our chagrin....

Pirated 'Wolverine' Movie Lands Fox News Writer in Hot Water

This week, Fox News columnist Roger Friedman provided lecture fodder for journalistic ethics professors everywhere. When news of a pirated copy of 20th-Century Fox's forthcoming 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' recently surfaced (the movie's set to hit the big screen May 1st), comic fans and interested moviegoers began scouring the Web for an early viewing. Mr. Friedman not only found and watched th...

Fox Removing Special Features from Rental DVD and Blu-ray Movies

In the VHS days, rental versions of movies were usually saddled with preview after preview that you'd have to fast-forward through before getting to the main event -- a small penalty for not having to pay full-price to watch it. With the advent of the DVD, and now high-def Blu-ray discs, you're usually just a button-press away from the film itself. Increasingly, however, the real attraction of dis...
