Dear Customers,

Amazon Prime Music

Amazon Prime Music

A little more than 3 years ago we launched Prime Instant Video, adding unlimited streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows to the existing Prime benefit of Free Two-Day Shipping. It has turned out to be one of the most important things we’ve done for Amazon Prime members. Today, we are doing it again for music — introducing Prime Music, the newest benefit of Prime membership.

With Prime Music, you can listen ad-free to over a million songs and hundreds of expert-programmed Prime Playlists. Prime Music includes tens of thousands of albums from top artists like Daft Punk, P!nk, Bruno Mars, Blake Shelton, The Lumineers, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna. And we’ll be adding more music all the time. Here’s a list of popular artists in Prime Music.

In designing Prime Music, we wanted to remove the barriers between you and the music you love. We removed cost. You can listen to the entire Prime Music catalog for free — it’s included in your Prime membership. We removed interruptions. Don’t worry about having your music constantly disrupted by ads… you won’t hear any. We removed listening restrictions. Choose exactly what song to listen to, repeat your favorite song over and over again, or download music to your phone or tablet to listen offline.

Finally, we removed one more barrier — deciding what to listen to. Just play any of the hundreds of Prime Playlists our music experts have created for you. Check out the Prime Playlists here.

Prime members in the US can start listening to Prime Music today at http://www.primemusic.com. Kindle Fire HD/HDX devices will get Prime Music in an automatic, over-the-air update. You can also download the latest Amazon Music app in the Android and iOS appstores. If you’re not yet a Prime member, start a 30-day free trial today. We think you’ll find the convenience of free two-day shipping combined with access to a huge selection of movies, TV, music and books to be an incredible value for just $99 a year.

FREE Two-Day Shipping with no minimum order size on over 20 million items
Unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs and hundreds of playlists
Instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video
Over 500,000 books to borrow for free, as frequently as once a month, with no due dates through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library

Daredevil a Netflix como una peliculota

One of the advantages is really from the planning stage – obviously it’s much easier to work with a smaller number of episodes than it is with a larger number of episodes. We can sit there and look at 13 episodes and plan it out as a very large movie

It makes seeing the bigger picture a little bit easier… You can’t deny that there will be binge-viewing. You know that there are going to be some Marvel fans that when this show premieres, they are going to go on to Netflix, and they are going to sit there for 12 to 13-plus hours, and watch the entire thing all the way through. It’s going to happen. The Netflix model offers us the advantage of being able to construct the show in a manner that is very different than a weekly network TV show… With weekly TV, you sit there and go, “The audience may not want to wait two or three weeks to get this particular bit of information.” Whereas with Netflix, we might be able to hold onto a particular piece of information, because they may just watch it two hours later.

Pluto.tv

Pluto TV (con apps en ios y Android, BTW) es un destino común para acceder a contenidos online, ellos “hacen la búsqueda por ti” y lo organizan en las categorías esperadas : deportes, música, cintas…etc.

Es interesante el experimento, escucharemos las viejas frases de “web Tv” y un llamdo a los cord cutters (hay que entender el modelo del cable)
Veamos si en un año todavía suena.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Internet is a big place, you’ve probably noticed. It’s full of great stuff, but often you spend more time searching than you do watching. We created PlutoTV to solve that problem, winnowing out the best of online entertainment and organizing it into an easy-to-navigate system of channels.

As you’ll see from the channel guide, we didn’t sacrifice quality for quantity. We went broad: High fashion, snowboarding, epic fails, kids shows, medieval history, politics, entertainment, and dozens more – but we also went deep, sending out experts who live and breathe these subjects to hunt and gather the best content about their passions. They make the effort, you enjoy the results.

You can enjoy PlutoTV wherever you are: Watch at home in the browser, stream to your Apple TV, or use our nifty app to watch on your iOS or Android device. Invite your friends and chat along as you watch, or save shows for viewing later on. Skip back and watch the same sweet moment fifty times, or just chill out and let the channel play.

Any more questions? Take a look at our FAQ section, drop us a note, or just explore and see what you find.

What are you waiting for? Go find a channel you love, sit back, and enjoy PlutoTV.

Si con Google TV no puedes, ahí van dos tantos de Android TV

No es por decir se los dije, pero creo que les había comentado que Google TV era una pésima idea, y la adopción de la misma lo valida. (preguntenle a Logitgoogle tvech)

Ahora, con nuevo hardware con poder suficiente para reproducir vídeo en 1080p o menos, sistemas operativos mobiles más maduros, y uno que lo han metido con calzador en cuanto chip de tres pesos se han encontrado, llega una nueva iteración, Google aplica “un Microsoft” y le va a seguir aventando dinero y recursos a este tema hasta que la gente se lo tenga que tragar.

Android TV is Android, optimized for the living room consumption experience on a TV screen

android tvv

Y es que parece que sólo google no ha visto una de estas soluciones de tres pesos para convertir tu tele en una Smart TV, android no tiene ni que estar optimizado, lo que la gente quiere es ver youtube (miles de opciones, en la tienda para windows 8 y RT hay alguna que otra bastante resultona) y películas (en streaming, ya ven que el audio no les importa, y claro que no les importa, si hasta ven filmes doblados).

Creo que todas estas empresas que quieren “arreglar” la TV no se han dado cuenta de que la misma se ha arreglado sola, los dueños de los derechos son el único obstáculo para que la gente pueda ver lo que quiera, cuando quiera.

 

Fire TV con apps sideloaded es lo mismo que este android TV, igual la Nexus conectada con HDMI a la TV…esta es una solución en busca de problema.

Hay mucho dinero esperando poder hacer caer a los incautos, y a los perplejos, pero Apple y Amazon tienen ya sus redes listas.
La primera por la fama de ser a prueba de abuelos, la segunda por ser la tienda del mercado más grande que hay.

Amazon Fire TV

Entre los Roku, Apple Tv, chromecast y HTPCs del mundo, este, en serio que es un mercado saturado, sin mencionar que las llamadas Smart TV, ofrecen algunos de los mismos beneficios.
feature-setup2
Esta es como la fusión entre un chromecast y una ouya, para jugar hay que pagar unos 40 dolares más, y el primer juego es gratis.

En mi caso, como ha sido desde hace muchos años, la única razón para volfeature-gaming._V340389429_tear a ver estas cosas es por ahorro de energía, mi HTPC , que tiene una geforce 650, y un viejo procesador de la era del core2 , no es muy ahorrador, pero hace todo lo que estas cosas, y el gaming es infinitamente superior.

Pero, no todos son tan apasionados como yo, ni se toman la molestia de informarse, así, que me parece que Amazon hace muy bien en señalar que es ideal para padres, poco soporte, aunque sospecho que esa es una ventaja también de la apple TV. (me recuerda este caso de la “ballad of a wifi hero“)

feature-secondscreen._V340471358_Sospecho, lamentablemente, que su status será, como el del kindle fire, aunque un poco mejor, aquí no hay “tiendas a medias”, como ocurre en la tablet con su fork de android, el kindle fire es una tableta que la gente regala, pero no una que deseen para ellos mismos, este fire TV, puede correr un poco de mejor suerte.
