Study: Chromecast Allows Users To Circumvent Tv Viewing Restrict

A new study finds that people are using Google's Chromecast streaming device to watch television shows on their living room TVs, at times circumventing the restrictions networks have placed on where consumers can watch their online content. The Parks Associates study reveals that roughly one-third of Chromecast owners use the device daily to watch current TV shows on Hulu. The Hulu use is potentially problematic for Hollywood, because half of those surveyed said they use the free version of the streaming service to watch the recently broadcast shows on their TVs, rather than pay $8 a month for a Hulu Plus subscription that's designed to allow viewing on Internet-connected TVs, mobile devices and through game consoles. "What were seeing is consumers ultimately want their content, first and foremost, on the biggest screen in their home," said Parks Associates Research Director BrettSappington. "In many cases, the content rights don't really allow that to happen. So, Chromecast provides a work-around." Sappington said consumers use their laptops and Google's Chrome browser to access the free Hulu site and select a TV episode, then transfer the video to the TV via the Chromecast streaming device. Sports fans are using the same back-door technique to watch soccer matches that NBC Sports streams online but doesn't broadcast. <br>Source:,0,5284602.story

Former cable TV bigwig hired by Apple to work on 'something big'

Is Apple reimagining how cable TV is delivered to the home with Mule's help? Speculation is running rampant. Related stories Amazon updates Instant Video to AirPlay shows onto Apple TV Still, it's important to note that the comment might mean nothing. Apple is a "big" company, after all, and just because someone says that they're part of something large, it doesn't necessarily mean that they're working on anything that could be groundbreaking. That Apple has hired Mule, however, is notable. Before joining the company, he was senior vice president at not-for-profit organization CableLabs. In that role, he worked on new television technologies, including apps, that could then be integrated into products sold by vendors. <br>Source:
