However, one of the more prominent streaming options may end up pulling the rug out from viewers, and it’s all thanks to one of the most sinister cable companies around.

Maybe that means their network HBO would start putting content on Hulu, and Warner Bros. Pictures and Television would start adding their movies and TV shows to the streaming service? Nope. Instead, Time Warner wants to buy part of Hulu so they can stop the service from steaming network and premium shows the day after they air on television. Shit just got real. Read More »

There’s already more stuff to watch on Netflix than you’ll be able to get through in a lifetime, but even so this news is bound to come as a disappointment to subscribers.
