  • Atari's Missile Command (from 1980) to become live-action movie

    In case you needed another indicator Hollywood has run out of ideas, here is a new one for you: Atari is about to sell the movie rights to Missile Command, a shooting game that hit arcades back in 1980, to 20th Century Fox and another movie production company.

  • Fox, Time Warner Cable agree to deal: Your NFL football is safe!

    Fox an Time Warner Cable struck a deal last night that prevented the unthinkable: no NFL football (and Fox News, and Fox Soccer Channel, etc.) for millions of Americans in the some of the biggest TV markets in America, like New York City and Los Angeles! The terms of the deal weren’t announced, but at last check-in, Time Warner Cable was prepared to give Fox between 20 and 30 cents… Read More

  • Fox, Time Warner fight over more money than you can count. Let's blame the Internet and stuff.

    It has all the makings of a drama that no one could possibly care about: a giant corporation looking to make even more money than it already does; an even bigger corporation looking to stand firm and not be bullied into making any decision against its will; helpless consumers with no one to turn to, no altar to pray at; and the Internet. If you’re a Time Warner subscriber you may loose… Read More

  • Family Guy Empire Strikes Back spoof leaks to Bit Torrent sites before its DVD debut

    Fox made the decision to release the second Family Guy Star Wars spoof on DVD before airing on its network. Why? Greed. The first one was a huge hit and instead of just giving it away on a Sunday night for the whole world to enjoy, some corner office suits decided to release it on DVD first. That way, they probably thought while sipping 50-year old whiskey in a smoke-filled boardroom, people… Read More

  • Fox to muck up Glee tonight with Twitter like it did last night with Fringe

    Did you happen to catch Fringe last night? Apparently – I missed it – Fox decided that it would be hip to superimpose a Twitter feed on top of the picture. Well, the Internet has spoken and no one likes it. Oh, and it’s going to happen again tonight during Glee. Read More

  • Fox Livens Up Re-runs With Twitter Commentaries

    Everyone hates re-runs. They’re episodes you’ve likely already seen, being run out of order because there is no new content to run. But Fox may have just figured out a way to make them more interesting: Twitter. The television network will be airing old episodes for two of its shows, Fringe and Glee, with Twitter commentary along the bottom of the screen. But no, sadly, not just… Read More

  • Original Futurama cast returning to the show!!!

    In case you didn’t notice, Peter Ha was a tad upset when news broke about Fox recasting Futurama. Good news though, a deal has been reached. The original cast is returning after agreeing to the “studio paying more and the actors accepting less” according to TheStar.com. I just hope that Peter can get some sleep now. He’s been a little cranky lately. Read More

  • MySpace Outsources International Advertising Operations To Fox International Channels

  • Hulu Now The Number Three U.S. Web Video Site. Soon To Be Number Two.

    Just last month, we wrote that Hulu had gained some 10 million viewers to become the fourth largest video portal on the web. Now, it’s slain another rival to the list: Yahoo, to move into #3 — at least in terms of videos viewed. To be clear, the new March U.S. numbers released by comScore show that Hulu is still slightly behind Yahoo’s video properties when it comes to… Read More
