Dispatches from the Front

"CBS’ Super Bowl telecast averaged 111.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen’s fast nationals, and peaked at 115.5 million between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. The total is off from last year’s record 114.4 million on NBC. That featured the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks in a game that went down to the wire. CBS called the 2016 telecast, during which the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers in a relatively humdrum game, the third-most watched program in TV history. The live stream drew 3.96 million unique viewers across a variety of screens.“

Super Bowl Averages 111.9 Million Viewers

Doing some quick math means that 3.5% of viewers watched via the internet.

Hi Cord Killers

I downloaded this app from Yahoo called Yahoo Video Guide.

Is possible you guys featured it on the who already but if not here it is.

The app detects which streaming services you have installed on your device (Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO Now..etc)
Then is shows you what new movies and shows are available, also breaks down by categories and in which services are available. I'd like for this to be included within the Apple TV or other boxes.

Thanks

Hi Guys,
I have a suggestion.  Since Man In The High Castle seems to have taken a bit of a backseat I would suggest this.  Just watch the last episode and you will be fine.  Much of what has happened up to where you are has been a set up for the last episode.  I don't think you will be disappointed and will understand why I keep harping on it after you have watched it.

Hey guys,
 
Undateable on NBC has been live all this season and is great to see current events and the actors personal lives intrude on the show, plus the screw ups are usually really fun and the cast is great, check it out.
 
Also, Grease Live was great, the scope of the moving sets, both indoor and outdoor plus the cast was amazing to watch even in the rain.

Hey guys, just to check in why I pay for cable.  I watch probably 40 shows a week more or less and only some are on Hulu timely and don’t come to Netflix or Amazon Prime until the season is over making talking with co-workers impossible on current shows.
 
Buying them individually would be way more than paying for cable at this point in time and I am too far from Austin to use an antenna without planting a pole and using a huge aerial. 
 
Thanks for your time,
- Michael
