Olsen July 6, 2018 Veronica Cintron, 28, is a materials engineer at Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems in Largo, Fla. Tell me about your job. I work on a variety of materials and items used in the communications systems we manufacture for our military services and foreign customers. These are items like radios and antennas — anything our troops in the field need to communicate — and also air traffic control systems deployed in the field. I investigate when there’s a problem. Usually I get a call from a technician on the manufacturing floor, and I’ll go there to see the problem, take photos and document it. Sometimes I’ll take a part to the failure analysis lab for a more detailed examination using optical or scanning electron microscopes. Then I … [Read more...] about Her Job: Help the Troops Do Theirs

Is Sixers general manager and vice president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo on his way out following one of the most ridiculous scandals in Philly sports history?

I went through a bit of a hassle to set up an over-the-air antenna that feeds into a local Plex server so I can receive and record my local shows. It works well, but navigating the Plex Live TV interface is tedious (there is no grid guide).As I decided to try out different live TV streaming services, I noticed that they all carry some of the local channels. Note I say "some" of the local channels, because my antenna brings in more than 100 broadcast channels. Most are not what I'd call necessary, but I'm sure someone watches all that stuff.Finding streaming localsI started with SlingTV, which carries my local Dallas Fox and NBC channels. That's good, but I like shows on ABC and CBS as well.Next, I tried YouTube TV, which carries all four major local channels (ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox). PlayStation Vue and DirecTV Now and Hulu Live also carry all four major D-FW networks. I'll work my way through trials of those services soon. PBS local stations aren't included in any streaming service, … [Read more...] about Cord-cutters: Do you really need an antenna to watch local channels?
Dish Network’s Sling TV has always been one of the best streaming channel bundles for antenna users. While rivals like DirecTV Now and YouTube TV make customers pay for the same broadcast networks they can get over the air for free, Sling omits them from its basic $20-per-month package, and only includes NBC and Fox in its $25-per-month package. This has helped Sling keep costs down, even as competitors charge upwards of $35 per month for streaming cable channels. Now Sling is doubling down on the antenna with AirTV, a $120 box that relays free broadcast channels from an antenna to Sling TV’s apps on Roku players, Amazon Fire TV devices, iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. This gives Sling subscribers a single app and unified TV guide for watching both cable and broadcast channels. It also allows them to watch broadcast TV from outside the house. Mitch Weinraub, AirTV’s director of product development, says a majority of Sling TV’s 2.2 million subscribers … [Read more...] about Sling TV has a secret weapon to win over cord-cutters–the humble TV antenna
If there’s anyone who should know about the future of paying for TV, it’s Hunter Sappington, 25, who tracks about 215 internet video services for his job as a research analyst. He knows what’s coming (ESPN+ debuted in April, and Disney’s streaming service will launch in the fall of 2019) and going (Seeso, RIP last November). He knows how popular they are — he says nearly half of the 215 have well under 10,000 subscribers each. He has access to just about anything he wants to watch. But he only regularly uses four at home: Netflix, Amazon, anime-site Funimation and Playstation Vue. “I did grow up in a cable household. Moving out in college, I never picked it back up again,” said Sappington, a researcher for Parks Associates who was in Denver this week for a TV industry event about the online video industry. “A lot of us ‘cord-nevers’ probably experienced cable at some point in their lives and ultimately … [Read more...] about What’s next for online TV services may be ironically familiar as companies aim to simplify the viewer experience
