Cable Companies Get the Honest Trailer Treatment–And It Ain’t Pretty

The deceit begins almost right after you sign the contract and make your first payment to your cable company. “When will the technician come to set things up?”, you might ask. “Oh, they’ll probably drop by your house tomorrow,” the cable rep might respond.

Three days later and the cable guy is still a no-show. You’ll be left waiting at the door with no cable, no Internet, and no more patience. Thus begins the hate-hate relationship that you’ll have with your current cable company and with the one after that, because contrary to how things might appear–all cable companies are the same.

Check out the hilarious parody above that speaks the absolute truth about cable companies.

Boxee TV Lets You DVR With No Limits

The Boxee Box brought with it lots of hype, but it’s a hard world out there for a media streamer. So the company is switching tacks and trying to enter the DVR market with an interesting offering: unlimited storage on the cloud. Most DVRs come with hard drives and after a few months of rigorous recording, you’re likely to start feeling a little squeezed. Not so with Boxee TV, which uploads everything you decide to keep, so you can pretty much record it all! And you’re then free to watch it back from any device that has access to the Internet. It has a dual tuner that allows it to display TV from over-the-air signals and basic unencrypted cable, and you’re able to record one show while watching another.

The service costs $15 a month, and will be “rolling out to 8 of the top TV markets in the US: New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and D.C. Additional markets later in 2013.”
