    Forgive me, dear readers, as I really meant to write this article some time ago and (pun intended) I didn't have the time. That should tell you the level of interest I have in the Apple Watch. For me the most interesting thing is that they didn't call it the iWatch. I suppose they didn't want people saying "Can iWatch" ...

    Time to fire up those DVRs again!

    DIRECTV is running a free preview of its HD Extra Pack today through Wednesday, October 8. The HD Extra Pack was originally created for channels that have no SD counterpart, and as that distinction became less important, it matured into a home for premium content that you can't get anywhere else.

    The oddsmakers can put down their pencils. It was a nearly sure thing anyway, but it's now a certainty; the NFL have granted DIRECTV exclusive rights to the Sunday Ticket package for 2015 and beyond. Although terms are not yet public, the one thing that's certain at this point is this is an exclusive deal; no other pay-TV company is getting it.

    This all but seals the deal for the merger of AT&T and DIRECTV, as long as regulators go along. AT&T had put a clause in their part of the merger agreement that the deal was off if NFL Sunday Ticket wasn't renewed, ...

    Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of free movies, all available to stream. DIRECTV brings them to you on their app for smartphones and tablets, and it's easier than ever to get them! The latest version gives you a revised user interface with the ability to filter out FREE content! It's even smart enough to know if you have premium packages and show you that content if it's available. Just use the dropdown menu at the upper left to show My Channels Only and Free Items Only. You can even go further, filtering by genre too. You'll get full guide data, cast information everything.

    If you want to look at free movies to record, choose "All" from the upper right choices. If you only want to look at streaming choices, choose "Watch on iPad," "Watch on Phone" or "Watch on Tablet" depending on your device. It's super easy. and you get near HD resolution if your device has enough bandwidth to support it. Even use your device's built-in "casting" ability (Miracast, Chromecast, AirPlay, etc) or a good-old-fashioned HDMI cable to put the content up on a TV. As I said, who needs Netflix?

    The best part, of course, is that all of this is free with your DIRECTV subscription. Of course, if you want pay-per-view movies, you'll get a full selection and ordering is easy, it just charges to your DIRECTV bill! There are tons of movies available weeks or even months before the premium channels or Netflix get them, plus a complete library of back titles.

    Of course, it's not just movies either. There's a lot of on demand content, and with a GenieGO you can stream or download content from your home DVR as well. Virtually unlimited!
