What if you could predict how successful your next movie or TV show would be? Social Sentiment Analysis-- the new content crystal ball.

TV shows are made, pilots launched, but some are cancelled after just a few episodes. Meanwhile consumers complain there are too many channels, too many shows, but there is often “nothing on” that they want to watch. Why the disconnect?…

Viewing My Way! English & Spanish Programming

If you asked me a year ago about my TV watching habits my answer would have been different then today. I would have never imagined that I would watch less TV yet more of the programming I like, or that I could live without cable. Yes, I finally cut the cord and got rid of the dusty yet expensive cable boxes. It's been 6 months since I got rid of cable. I thought that i could not do it. I thought that I would miss the box atop of my tv, but, now i've realized that I do not miss it at…

TV Watching as a Mom

As a mom tv watching in my household is very limited. I also find that watching tv in itself has evolved. For the most part, I find that instead of spending countless hours in front of the tv soaking in hours of programming we are now on-the-go and choosing what we want to watch and when. There's also so much content available and ways to obtain it that it can be quite overwhelming.

While at home I am constantly multi-tasking while preparing a meal for my family, organizing the home,…

TV Watching Habits

Ever since I discovered Netflix I have been hooked. I rarely watch regular cable television anymore, not only do I enjoy Netflix my kids love it.

I especially enjoy Netflix because I have been able to see movies that have not been released in theaters and that I probably wouldn't haven't watched otherwise. I tend to watch movies on the weekend with the family to catch up from the…

Will OTT be assimilated into existing Pay TV business models, or destroy them?

I know this might sound trite, but 2014 could be the year of "Over-the-Top." Perhaps not the year it became so mainstream that it rivaled the decades-old Pay TV business model, but at least the year when seeds where planted, some with roots that might break concrete.

Consider the recent announcements by HBO, CBS, Univision and others. It used to be that these content players had too much to risk to upset the Pay TV apple cart,…

With all the major OTT news from HBO and CBS, FreeCast's simple but innovative Rabbit TV Plus says "Yup, we've been waiting for you."
