NBCUniversal is due to launch the Esquire Network (in partnership with Hearst Magazines) because the vast cable wasteland of reality TV and infotainment simply does not offer enough shows to watch endlessly in the ol’ man-cave.
Amazon LOVEFiLM subscribers abroad will soon have access to American TV series such as The Office, 30 Rock, and Heroes. Subscribers will even be able to watch 80’s hits such as Knight Rider starring David Hasselhoff in his breakout role as as crimestopper Michael Knight. LOVEFiLM has recently made deals with ABC, BBC, and ITV to add more titles to their instant streaming library. Devices that support LOVEFiLM streaming include select Blu-ray players and TVs, the Kindle Fire HD, Apple iPad, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, iOS and Android devices, and other media players.
Netflix is in the news yet once again as the company announced renewal of a multiyear television and film agreement with NBCUniversal. That means past seasons of NBC shows “The Office,” “30 Rock,” “Parenthood,” Law and Order: SVU” and “The Event” will be available to Instant Watch. Shows from NBC Universal’s cable networks will also be available such as “Warehouse 13,” “Psych,” “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane.”
