It's a happy day for our neighbors to the North. Netflix has finally announced that its ever popular streaming service is crossing the border later this year. Canadian customers will be able to enjoy Netflix streaming content on their PCs, Macs and "a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming." Hopefully this means that consumer devices that play Netflix in the States will be able to play it in Canada.
Hulu has finally made its way to the PlayStation 3. Not everyone's getting access right off the bat though. It's only available to certain PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you got access, you'll be able to find out simply by switching on your PS3.
We've been talking about XStreamHD for a while now. It was announced way back in 2007, but almost nothing has happened since. Usually when that happens, it means we've got vaporware on our hands. In this case though, things seem to be going a bit differently.
Chalk this one up as unnecessary, but definitely interesting. YouTube – the site where you can find thousands of out of focus and pixilated videos of people playing their favorite songs on guitar, falling off of a skateboard or even getting hit in the groin – has added support for 4K resolution videos.
There are a few big problems with the Netflix streaming service, but one of the biggest is the lack of new content. It's great if you're in the mood to watch 'Arthur,' or a few old episodes of 'Weeds,' but if you're looking for new movies, you'll be sorely disappointed.
