Sears and Kmart announces Netflix competitor Alphaline Entertainment

Sears Logo

Looks like all the giants of the superstore world are looking to own a piece of territory in the online movie market. Just ask WalMart who recently purchased Vudu, a non-subscription service for buying and renting movies that stream online. 

Sears and Kmart are partnering with RoxioNow on their service, called Alphaline Entertainment, which is going to be available on a multitude of devices. Whether Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii will want to be home to yet another movie service that does pretty much the same thing as all the others isn't known yet. What is known is that 'Alphaline Entertainment' is looking to succeed against an already established king of the online movie world where many have failed. And it doesn't help that the name doesn't roll off the tongue as easily as 'Netflix'.

Do you think Alphaline Entertainment stands a chance? Let us know.

Bleeding Edge 079: CES 2007 Video: TiVo Shows Off TiVoToGo Mac Software

We caught up with our peeps over at TiVo during CES and hit them up with a few questions about the newly announced TiVoToGo software for the Mac. We got a brief demonstration of the software, which is built-in to Roxio Toast 8, which shows off a bunch of it’s functionality. If you are on a Mac and looking to move your TiVo content to your computer, your moment has arrived.


CES 2007: TiVo Announces Mac TivoToGo Support, Finally

Description TiVo announced today that TivoToGo would be available for Macs through Roxio’s Toast 8 program. This will finally allow Mac users to pull down their TiVo content to their Macs, though they have to pay $69.99 for the privilege (and that’s after a $30 instant rebate for a limited time.) As a regular user of the PC version of TivoToGo, I find value in it, but I’m not sure I’d be quick to part with $70 so easily. Oh, and it only works with Series 2 since the Series 3 has restrictions on file transfer because of the CableCard compatibility.

It’s available now, so have at it Mac-users!
