Sony is launching a streaming service with 4K Blu-ray picture quality — but it will only be available on Bravia TVs for now. The Bravia Core service will come pre-loaded on all new Bravia XR models, with a catalog of new releases and classic blockbusters from the Sony Pictures archive. The platform uses Sony’s “Pure Stream” tech to reach “near-lossless UHD BD equivalent quality” with streaming up to 80 Mbps, according to Sony. That’s three-to-four times more than Netflix and around double that of Apple TV.  But bear in mind that the bitrates often dip way below the maximum in practice… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Sony

He was convicted of a notorious scam in 2007, where he misappropriated ₹14,162 crores ($1.63 billion) from Satyam Computers’ accounts. Along with Raju, Netflix‘s docuseries captures the journey of Vijay Mallya, former chairman of United Spirits known for Kingfisher beer, jeweler Nirav… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Netflix

Hola pandemic pals, When flu season hits this year, are we going to update the novel coronavirus to COVID-20?

It’s been less than a week since Christopher Nolan‘s latest blockbuster Tenet hit theaters, but pirated copies are already circulating the internet. There’s one catch though: none of the leaked versions are in high quality. Several pirated copies of the movie have cropped up online over the past couple of days, TorrentFreak reports. Sources of the leak remain unclear, but the report notes one of the versions features Korean subtitles, while German subtitles can be seen in the other. There’s also a release with an overlaid text, inviting viewers to a certain gambling site, which is a common (and pretty sketchy) advertising… This story continues at The Next Web

Apple‘s track record is rather clean when it comes to maintaining security for its Macs. However, a newly found goof-up might screw up its impressive scorecard. The company accidentally approved an Adobe Flash-based malware to run on Macs without any warning. Security researchers Patrick Wardle and Peter Dantini found this bug in a Flash-powered installer hosted on a copycat site of Homebrew, a package management system for Linux. To ensure that apps running on macOS are secure, Apple asks developers for what’s called a Notarization process. If the company’s automated service finds that the app doesn’t have any malware, it issues a… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Apple
I love watching movies. A controversial and brave statement, I know. Anyway, since the end of last year, this habit has accelerated. It’s hard to know why. Maybe it’s because I started my own movie-tracking spreadsheet, maybe it’s because of the Netherlands’ Cineville card, or maybe, just maybe, it’s because of my 4K Blu-ray player. Yes, you read that correctly, my preferred way to watch movies on my sofa is with a — whisper it now — disc.
