By: Array

Bang & Olufsen makes some undeniably high-end gear for audiophiles and video fans. I have tested a few of their offerings over the years for the iPhone and iPods and the stuff looks very cool and sounds really good too. I have also had some of their headphones and speakers for computers in my hands and all around the gear has been top notch. B&O has a line of crazy expensive LED TVs for people with the loot to afford high-end hardware for the living room and the company has announced a new, smaller screen set to its line.

By: Array

Home theater in a box systems have been around for a long time and they tend to put all of the stuff you need in one package so you don't have to guess at what to buy for a nice home theater system.

The company is well known for its line of speakers and has been selling gear for a long time for computer users and audiophiles, plus it has sound systems in some cars and trucks as well.

Hulu Plus subscription may go half price for launch

By: Array

I have never tried Netflix's streaming content service. I have been on the company's mail order DVD program before and ended up cancelling when the movies I wanted never showed up. I am more interested in streaming content now when I miss a show than going and trying to rent it or waiting for a rerun and when Hulu announced its Plus subscription service I was interested. The price was a bit steep though at $9.99 monthly for access to shows from most of the major networks and older shows that are no longer on TV.


TweakTown image news/1/7/17249_1.jpg


Hulu has been running a beta of the subscription offering for a while now ironing out all of the kinks before the official launch and getting ready to take the service to the general public. AllThingsD reports that sources have told it that Hulu is considering a much more palatable price for the subscription service. The $9.99 price is apparently hard for the beta users to stomach so Hulu is said to be eying a new price tag of $4.95 per month.

Foxtel on Xbox 360 will not be unmetered

By: Array

A few days ago I talked about Foxtel's new Xbox 360 service - it's still planned to launch next month but will not be unmetered because ISP's are offering their own internet TV solutions.


TweakTown image news/1/7/17225_125.jpg


To put things in perspective, an hour of standard-definition streaming content is rumoured to use around 800MB of data - while the average television viewing is around 21 hours per week, equating to 16.5GB of data per week.


iiNet communications manager Anthony Fisk said while users are free to use the Foxtel service - it won't be unmetered.
