The trouble with streaming services: too many people with their hands out

If you don't want to use cable TV or satellite, you still have myriad choices for getting your fix of video content thanks to a plethora of download and streaming services.

Netflix and YouTube plan to take on Apple's AirPlay with DIAL

DIAL, an open standard form of wireless playback, is being given a rather large push by both Netflix and YouTube. Their hopes are that using an open standard will allow developers to solve second screen playback issues in a better way than Apple's AirPlay. In other words, it wouldn't be a proprietary solution and would be available to anyone who wants to implement the protocol.

Netflix updated for iPhone 5, iOS 6

Netflix has updated with iPhone and iOS 6 support, so now you can enjoy your 16:9 content in a fully 16:9 screen as nature and Hollywood intended. There's also a new interface that lets browse titles, tap for information, and double tap to play. It's a good use of the taller/wider screen space, and a good improvement to the Netflix app in general.

Netflix for iPhone and iPad has been updated with an updated interface and varied improvements on playback, AV sync, and subtitle handling. The new interface isn't a complete overhaul, but very minor. In fact, what I notice most about the interface is that it's actually rather sluggish with horrible scrolling, a bit clunky, and you still can't edit or view your mailing queue or view or leave reviews.

How Netflix lost a year, and our confidence

Looking over the wreckage of ill-considered price hikes, ill-advised videos, and the ill-conceived Qwiskter spin-off, it's hard to reconcile that Netflix of the last tear with the savvy, disruptive, almost prescient upstart service that was a favorite of iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV users. Yet CNET's Greg Sandoval has done just that, and lays the blame cleanly at the top.
