Apple TV Channels: All The Services Supported So Far

about X hours ago from

Apple has some big updates coming for its TV app, and in the process, it will be incorporating many other existing online video services, as revealed at today's Apple Event.

Apple TV Channels puts the majority of the services people subscribe to--except for Netflix--into one place. It's more about organization and a one-stop place to view all the content you are subscribed to. It was unclear at the time of the event as to whether you had to purchase these services through Apple or if you could migrate existing accounts onto TV Channels.

Aside from the bigger services like Hulu and Amazon, Apple TV will add smaller services like Acorn TV, for British television; Tastemade, for travel and food series; and Shudder, for horror movies and original series. Additionally, it's interesting to see a few Viacom properties, like Comedy Central, Nick, and MTV here, as much of the parent company's content was pulled from various streaming services, and it wasn't included with Hulu's new live TV service.

Apple Arcade Allows Offline Play

about X hours ago from

During an entertainment-focused presentation, Apple announced a new game subscription service called Apple Arcade. The monthly subscription rate will give you a selection of roughly 100 exclusive games, with more to be added regularly. But it's one feature the service is lacking that acted as a direct answer to Google.

During the presentation, Apple specifically mentioned that Apple Arcade isn't a cloud-based streaming service. And since it isn't streaming, the company emphasized, you can download and play the games offline. This is in very direct contrast to Google's cloud-based Stadia game streaming platform, which the company said can't run offline.

Apple Arcade includes partners like Sega, Konami, Disney, Sumo Digital, and Cartoon Network. Any game included in Arcade will be updated with updates or DLC as part of your subscription cost. You can also pick up your games on other devices, and Apple promises more games will be added "all the time."

Warframe Giving Away Free Skins For Sixth Anniversary This Week

about X hours ago from

Digital Extremes' popular online shooter, Warframe, is celebrating its sixth anniversary this week with an assortment of freebies. On Wednesday, March 27, players across PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch will receive an exclusive Liset skin, along with all previous anniversary gifts, including last year's Dex Excalibur skin.

2018 turned out to be the biggest year yet for Warframe, Digital Extremes touted. Not only did the title receive more than 26 updates and 111 hotfixes over the course of the year, it made its Switch debut with an impressive port last November. The game's registered user base also saw an impressive increase, jumping from 38 million players last March to "nearly" 50 million as of this month.

The Profit Taker, the first big content update for Warframe's Fortuna expansion, launched in December 2018. Since then, Digital Extremes has rolled out the Operation: Buried Debts update, which introduced another new Warframe to the game--Hildryn--and made the first "phase" of melee combat changes.

Lord Of The Rings Gollum Game Promises Promises New Details On The Precious

about X hours ago from

A new narrative action-adventure game will take a deeper look at the story of Gollum, the pitiful creature at the heart of the Lord of the Rings series. The Lord of the Rings - Gollum from Daedelic Entertainment is slated for 2021, with platforms to be determined.

The story will follow the life of Smeagol, aka Gollum, as he finds and becomes corrupted by the One Ring. It will follow the events of the novels, so we all know where he ends up (spoilers: in a volcano), but the story promises "new events and details related to Gollum's journey."

Right now it's due on PC, as well as whichever console platforms are "relevant" at the time. This appears to be the first of several planned partnerships between Daedelic and Middle-earth Enterprises.
