HBO Now, Crackle, and a bunch of features come to video discovery app MightyTV

mightytv adds hbo now crackle mighty list tv
Earlier this year, we took a look at MightyTV, a video discovery app that took cues from Tinder by allowing its users to swipe their way through TV and movie recommendations in order to easily find something to watch. Once something was found, the app made it easy to cast the viewer’s choice to their TV.

While MightyTV launched with support for a fair amount of streaming services including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, iTunes, and HBO Go, there were a few notable services — HBO Now, for example — that were missing. On Thursday, Mighty TV announced that not only have HBO Now and Crackle joined the list of supported services, but a few new features have been added as well.

“We’ve designed MightyTV as a solution for anyone who wants to find more of what they’ll love to watch, without having to waste time each night flipping through channels or jumping between user log-ins,” MightyTV CEO Brian Adams said in a statement. “The new services and features we’re adding come after listening carefully to our users, and this is just another step we’re taking to make it even easier to find great videos you’ll love.”

The most interesting new feature added is the Mighty List. It uses a mix of user data collected from MightyTV viewers and handpicked selections from the company’s editorial team to steer users toward shows and movies that are currently hot. Users will see award-winning films that have recently been added to streaming services, as well as what MightyTV users are adding to their watch lists en masse.

The other new feature is likely to be popular with those who are a bit more privacy focused. Previously, signing up for MightyTV meant doing so with a Facebook account. Users can now sign up with an email address — something they have been requesting since the app launched in April.

Unfortunately, if you’re an Android user, you’re not going to be able to use MightyTV — for the time being, the app is iOS-only, available in the App Store as a free download. For more information, see the MightyTV website.

AT&T jacks up DirecTV Now pricing once again in subscription tier shake-up
DirecTV Now Promo Shot

If you're a DirecTV Now subscriber, get ready to pay a fair bit more for your entertainment. AT&T, which owns the streaming service, is planning to increase fees for existing subscriptions by $10 per month as part of a line-wide shake-up that'll revamp DirecTV Now's various subscription tiers, Cord Cutter Now reports.

The change shouldn't come as much of a surprise to current DirecTV Now users. The company already raised all price plans by $5 per month in late 2018 and, as TechCrunch notes, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson announced upcoming price hikes back in December. DirecTV Now Customers can expect to receive official notification about the cost increases starting tomorrow, March 12. The new prices will take effect 25 days after the emails arrive.

DirecTV Now 1 million subscribers

Just over a year after the service launched, live TV streaming service DirecTV Now has topped 1 million subscribers, Variety reports. To celebrate, DirecTV parent company AT&T has announced a batch of new features that will come to the service in 2018.

When DirecTV Now launched last year, it wasn’t a particularly smooth rollout. At the start, the service was plagued by performance issues, but a number of promotions, including offering an Apple TV for those who pre-paid for three months of service, allowed the service to gain more than 200,000 subscribers in its first month.

If you ever felt like watching music videos all day, you'll be happy to hear that Vevo is about to make that goal easier to achieve. Vevo on Thursday announced the biggest redesign of its Apple TV app since it debuted in February 2016, and it's geared toward you never having to stop the music.

The previous version of the Vevo for tvOS app essentially ported enough of the best features from the mobile and web app to make it functional. Before, when you fired up the app, you would just see large, vertical boxes for each section of Vevo, and would have to click on one before you could see any music videos. Now, once you open the app, you are met with a carousel list of the top videos on Vevo, as well as music videos recommended for you. You are one click away from Future's Use Me music video the second the app comes on.
