Apple TV Review 2015

Apple TV Review

Apple TV Review 2015This is the Apple TV Review 2015 from WaysToWatch.com. It has been rumored for years that Apple was developing a product that would revolutionize how we experience television. And what I expected most was for this product to free me from cable companies. Does the new Apple TV live up to the years of built up expectation? In terms of design the Apple TV is simple and doesn’t distract. The remote looks and feels amazing. It is has six buttons a touch surface. With this remote Apple seems to have gotten more complex instead of sticking with its characteristic simplicity. You can call up Siri, adjust volume, and control games. Even though the touch surface is a main selling point. It did not do it for me. Sure it’s better, but not by much.

Apple TV Review Tech

Oddly the iphone remote app is not compatible with the new Apple TV. So, you have no convenient way to enter text. When it comes to performance the Apple TV has an A8 64-bit chip. Everything about the Apple TV is snappy and responsive. Games look amazing. This is the bet gaming performance you can get out side of the playstation and xbox. It lacks 4k support, but there still isn’t a lot of 4k content so at this point you probably won’t miss it much. The connections will have you covered with HDMI 1.4 and Ethernet. Siri can be a mixed experience on the iPhone. But when Siri has to only answer questions that pertain to movies and tv shows it performs consistently.

Apple TV Streaming Channels

Apple TV has most of the services you will want. Netflix, Hulu and, of course, iTunes are all here. A significant number of my digital movies are through VUDU, so it is disappointing to see that there is no VUDU app. It is odd that there are apps from VUDU and Amazon Video on the iPhone but not on the Apple TV. Even though the potential of TV-OS is promising, you still need to have a cable subscription to access the shows and movies you normally watch. Specifically, there is no way for you to watch NBC, Fox, ABC, ESPN or AMC for the Walking dead without a subscription. But say you choose to only go with apps that require a monthly subscription. Here is short list that most of us would consider. HBO Now ( for game of thrones) $14.99 , Showtime $11, CBS All Access $6, Netflix (house of cards) $8.99, and let’s add HULU for access to from FOX, NBC and ABC. That’ll cost $11.99. and through the league passes for the NBA($30/month) and MLB($19) that will cost you $101.99/month. If you can skip sports and premium channels and just go with HULU. $11.99 a month is not bad. Any benefits in cost evaporate once you try to add sports. What can I say, the User Interface is second to none. It looks absolutely amazing. It is new and fresh and the parallax posters are a nice touch. This easily beats any UI from the competition. Overall it is really easy to find what I want. For $149 streaming box, the Apple TV offers the best experience when compared to chromecast or Amazon Fire TV. When compared to cable companies, it was disappointing to realize that you don’t actually save much money. Its hard to gauge whether the Apple TV is a great product or if its just the best streaming box amongst a set of mediocre streaming boxes. But the Apple TV has far more potential when compared to the competition. When more apps are created specifically for the Apple TV, apps that are truly interactive, then we will get something that more closely resembles the revolutionary product we’ve been waiting for.

Jurassic World Limited Edition Blu-ray Gift Set Unboxing

Jurassic World Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing

Jurassic_World_Unboxing_520x300This is the Ways To watch.com unboxing of the Jurassic World Limited Edition 3D Blu-ray Gift set. This is an enjoyable movie, it brought me back to when I saw the first movie as a kid. I knew would be a big movie, but I did not think it will be the biggest movie of the summer. Here is the Ultra Violet and iTunes sticker. Here is the Jurassic World Logo Limited Edition Blu-ray 3D Gift Set. It has Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and a Digital HD and the obvious 2 Collectible Dinosaurs. It shows everything that comes in the set. A scene from the movie. And suggest that the dinosaurs can be used as book ends. Blu-ray Exclusives and additional Features and more screen shots.

Jurassic World iTunes and Ultraviolet

And I appreciate that you can get both Ultra Violet and iTunes for this digital copy. This great because your digital copy won’t be limited to one platform. On the back their is a scary close up of the Indominus Rex. The rest of the box is all black. Getting it out of the box requires a bit of care. The first thing out of the box is the disc case and the certificate of authenticity. The case feels really solid. The Indominus Rex and T. Rex have some weight. I guess that they need to have weight if they are going to be used as book ends. Now let’s take a look at the blu-ray case. It has the Jurassic World logo. The backing reiterates what comes with this disc set. I don’t know if you can see this, but this can fold out to act as a stand. Here is the digital copy info with more promotional material. Now the case here is metal. It’s a nice touch. It looks like each disc has its own sleeve. With the Indominus getting ready to have a snack. here is the 3d disc. The blu-ray sleeve has Chris Pratt with the pack of velociraptors. here is the blu-ray disc. It has the same backing on the sleeve. And lastly the DVD. It has the opening shot of the Indominus Rex hatching. The DVD has a red covering. The tin case is a nice touch. The Jurassic world logo is embossed. Now to the main event. Here we have Indominus Rex and the T. Rex. The skin has a good level of detail. Look at this detail in the skin and eyes. These are good models. You can put them into interesting poses. Here is a close up of the back of the Indominus. On the base they both have a JW imprint. This has been the WaysToWatch.com unboxing of the Jurassic World Limited Edition Blu-ray Gift Set.

Amazon Fire TV (2015) Review

Amazon Fire TV 2015 Review

This is the WaysToWatch.com review of the 2015 Amazon Fire TV. Does it live up to the hype? How does it rank amongst the new streaming devices from Google and Apple?

Amazon Fire TV Design

It features the same design from the previous model. There is not much more than a square box. But who cares about the exterior? It is about how it feels and performs.

Amazon Fire TV Remote

The remote is well made, but there are issues with the back of the remote. It is hard to remove it. After working through the back of the remote, the remote actually feels really good in my hand. It works well and is really responsive. The iOS Fire TV App is helpful and easy to use.

Streaming On The Amazon Fire TV

It performs well for streaming, but is limited when it comes to gaming. Amazon’s ASAP feature aims to eliminate buffering time by assuming what you will watch. Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime work on Fire TV. If you have a Plex Media Server, good news, the Fire TV can stream movies from the server.

Alexa on Amazon

Amazon’s Alexa voice service can play music, do searches, check sports scores, and provides weather forecast.

X-Ray, FreeTime On The Amazon Fire TV

Another feature from Amazon for the Fire TV is X-Ray. X-ray gives you information about a movie or TV show, like which actors are in a particular scene. Parent can use FreeTime as their parental control tool. All of the main streaming services are available on the Fire TV. The user interface on the Fire TV can be confusing, overall it is a decent streaming box.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide

Mr-Peabody-Sherman_feature

Fans showed up for Mr. Peabody and Sherman all over the world. Based on characters from the 60s television show, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, Mr. Peabody and Sherman was generally well received by critics and well received by audiences. Even though it generated over $260 million in box office receipts, Mr. Peabody and Sherman did not turn a profit for DreamWorks Animation. The film cost $145 million to produce, which makes me wonder how much money was spent on marketing the film. However, it is likely that the film will make a tremendous amount from home video sales.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 24, 2014. This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital options.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman On 3D Blu-ray Deluxe Edition

Currently, this has a lower price than the normal 2D Blu-ray disc set.








Mr. Peabody and Sherman Blu-ray Special Features

  • Tour of the WABAC Machine – Mr. Peabody, himself, takes us on an in-depth tour of the WABAC machine. He explains what many of the WABAC’s knobs, buttons, and gizmos do. Exactly what is a Pneumatic Dressilator? A hemidemisemiquavatron? And, those windshield wiper controls…how exactly do they help while speeding through the space-time continuum? Mr. Peabody explains it all!
  • Time Travel: Mad Science – We talk to real physicists Kenneth Wharton and Anthony Aguirre to find out if there is any possibility of time travel, and if so, how it would work. We explore the two time travel theories of the Block Universe and the Multi-Verse. We also learn why scientists think only forward time travel is possible, and how Einstein’s Theory of Relativity still determines how scientists imagine the possibilities of time travel.
  • Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends Show – See the premiere episode of the original 1959 television show.
  • Mr. Peabody & Sherman Segments – Watch five segments from the original television series including Robin Hood, Leonardo Da Vinci, Louis XVI, William Shakespeare, and Ludwig Van Beethoven.

Cast members Ty Burrell (voice of Mr. Peabody) and Max Charles (voice of Sherman), join filmmakers Rob Minkoff (director), Alex Schwartz (producer) and Tiffany Ward (executive producer) for the festivities. Also on hand (or paw?) are some of Mr. Peabody’s very famous furry friends, including Lassie, Beethoven, Rin Tin Tin, and a very adorable dog named George Clooney.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide

Captain-America-The-Winter-Soldier-feature

At the writing of this article, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the number one movie of 2014. It recently passed The LEGO Movie to become number one. I loved this movie. Amongst the movies in Marvel’s Phase II, I rank Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the top 2. It is a toss up between this movie and The Avengers for the best one. When I read a review stating that Captain America: The Winter Soldier was the best Avengers movie I really doubted that it would deliver. After seeing it in the theater I was amazed at how good it was. It is so much better than Captain America: The First Avenger.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on September 9, 2014. This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital options.

Wrap Up

Everyone I’ve talked to about this movie loved it. When I mention that it is on par with The Avengers, the same people scoff. Their response seems to come from some odd reverence for The Avengers. And when I say it was better than all of the Iron Man movies then some people lose it. What do you think? Where would you rank Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Noah Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide


Noah_feature_2

For all of the religious upheaval, Noah was a smashing success at the box office. With solid performances from Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and the rest of the cast, Noah brought a fresh perspective on a familiar story. The familiarity of the story surely contributed to the success of the film. People who are familiar with the biblical story and those who watched the movie in the theater will be interested in bringing this movie home.

Noah will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 29, 2014. This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital options.

Wrap Up

For such a successful film, the extras and special features are limited on all offerings for Noah.

Transcendence Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide

transcendence_feature

Transcendence was really cool. The bad reception by credits was unwarranted. If anything, I would say that the movie was misrepresented in the trailers and other marketing material. It is a lot slower than what the trailers represented, but the movie was really well paced. The acting, beginning with Johnny Depp in the lead, was good.

Transcendence will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 22, 2014. This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital options.
