‘Netflix for pirates’ brings streaming video to BitTorrent users

Netflix For Pirates Streaming Torrents

If Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus are any indication, torrenting isn’t quite the destructive force many groups have made it out to be. BitTorrent is a popular alternative to legal streaming, buying and renting, but the abundance of poor quality torrents coupled with the unfriendly method of acquiring movies and TV shows through BitTorrent has kept a majority of viewers glued to their TVs, browsers and tablets. If watching a ripped movie was as easy as logging into Netflix, would the tides turn in the favor of torrents? The creators of Popcorn Time want to find out.

PlayStation App update brings live broadcasts to mobile devices

PlayStation 4 App Update
The next major update for the PlayStation App has arrived. Sony released the latest update on Friday, which adds a new ‘Live from PlayStation’ tile to the app, giving users the ability to watch live streams of their favorite games on Ustream or Twitch. Unfortunately, the app does not support playback itself — when you select a stream, you’ll be rerouted to your browser for Twitch video or to the official app for Ustream. The new version of the app also supports the playback of video in notification from the PlayStation Store and the app will no longer automatically connect to a PlayStation 4 in standby mode. These are minor updates, but ever addition makes the PlayStation App that much more viable as a true second screen experience.

Prip brings its push-to-talk app to the iPhone

Still miss Sprint’s iDEN network? Prip, the Motorola-developed app that lets you place push-to-talk calls, is now available for Apple’s iPhone. Released for Android last summer, the app makes it possible to speak instantly with other Prip subscribers, as well as with Nextel users in Latin America.

The iOS app is fairly similar to its Android counterpart. The app was originally tied to Google Play for credential and billing management, so Prip needed to move to an entirely new platform to support users across more than one OS. This move allows you to sign into the app with your number on either an iOS or Android device. Prip also now offers a Web-based dashboard for business customers to administer PTT accounts.

Prip iPhone interface

The app works on devices running iOS 7 or later, and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. In addition to other Prip users, it allows you to talk to millions of Nextel users in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru. It works over either cellular or Wi-Fi, so you can stay connected when traveling abroad.

Prip is free to download from Apple’s App Store. And it now costs $ 1.99 per user per month (on either platform), which is a significant step down from the $ 7.99 monthly fee when it launched on Android. That might help it gain some new members outside of the construction and government employee audience.
