    Unbundled Channels Coming To Canada, But Terrible Taste Could Make It A Disaster

    If you want History Channel, you also have to get Biography Baby or something non-fictional but equally dumb. It’s the magic of cable and satellite bundles, and it’s the Way Things Are Done. But in Canada, that might not be true much longer, as the government is gearing up to force Canadian satellite and cable providers to unbundle channels and offer them to customers on an a la… Read More

QVC was selling, last night, a Nintendo Wii, Go Play Circus Star Games, and a bunch of accessories (golf club, tennis racket, etc.) QVC wanted $362.97 for the bundle, but if you look at the retail price for all this, it comes out to $239.97.

Yeah. Read More

  • Amazon to Sell Xbox 360 for $100

    Rumor has it that Amazon will soon be selling an Xbox 360 bundle for $100.

The holiday promotion package is said to include the Xbox 360 Core System and possibly other accessories.
