Netflix Streams on Selected Androids Only

Written on November 15, 2010 by B Waldorf

This news is somewhat on the gray area. Netflix will be start streaming on Android devices but on just selected units. What do you think?

Year 2011 will be a good start for something new. As with Android users, Netflix will stream on you smartphones starting next year. No need to envy your friends friends who use WP7 or iPhone mobiles. Unfortunately, the app is limited to a few Android OS.

Netflix’s product development head, Greg Peters, reinstated in his blog yesterday that “the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android” was the one thing which stops the expansion of the platform to other Android devices.

“We are eager to launch on these devices and are disappointed that we haven’t been able to do so already,” he also wrote.

Since there’s no solution yet, Netflix works now with individual hardware manufacturers to the supported devices. First batch of the decives will be getting the app by 2011. But Peters said the company is already working on a platform-wide solution but no final words about the release date.

Let’s wait and see to where this project goes.

Our all-time favorite from Sesame Street, Elmo, recently uploaded a video interview on YouTube. This cuddly and cute character apparently became a hit this weekend with more than 3.5 million views.

Sesame Street, a popular kiddie program, recently used the Google Moderator to sort out questions for Elmo’s fans then uploaded it on YouTube. It is a 20-minute interview that is both cute and heartwarming. The video has accumulated more than 3.5 million views over the weekend.

Questions are raised by both kids and kids at heart. Some of the questions raised were, “What’s your favorite food?”; “How do you actually get to Sesame Street?”; “How do you keep from getting sad when your daddy is away?”

Gathering questions from online fans and answering these questions on web videos is a habit nowadays. Just like the Old Spice Guy campaign taking it to the next level as TV host Conan O’Brien has jumped on a bandwagon.

Lefevre Joins “Off the Map” Cast

Written on July 25, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

After being torn as Victoria from the Twilight series, the redhead actress Rachelle Lefevre is now on TV. She will play the role of a hippie doctor in Shonda Rime's "Off the Map."

Rachelle Lefevre has lined up a new gig on TV after being out of “The Twilight” franchise. The redhead actress has joined the cast of a Shonda Rimes-produced medical drama “Off the Map.”

Lefevre will play the hippie doctor Eva who has a great deal of knowledge in International Medicine, according to Enterntainment Weekly. Eva will have a history with the medical clinic the series is set around. This isn’t Rachelle’s first time to grab a TV role. She had guest roles in “CSI,” “Boston Legal,” and a five episode arc in “Swingtown.”

“Off the Map” is the third medical-based drama from Shonda. This time however, the creator of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” will take an executive role. The series that will hit screen this mid-season was created by Jana Bans, writer of “Grey’s Anatomy.” Like the first two series, the TV drama is all about medical personnel, but there’s no classy hospital and private facility involved this time. “Off the Map” will be based around doctors working in a tropical area.
