Hulu Live TV review: I tried cutting the cord but went back to cable

  • I tried the Hulu + Live TV streaming service to see if it could replace my regular cable TV subscription and TiVo box.
  • There were some compromises with Hulu + Live TV that my wife and I were willing to live with for paying significantly less than cable TV.
  • But skipping ads on Hulu + Live TV is barely an option, and it was the death blow that made us return to cable TV.

Every month, I’m horrified by the $100 bill I pay for my cable subscription.

Because of that, I’m on a quest to try out all the TV streaming services I can to see if at least one has the channels I want, as well as some basic features I’ve become used to with regular cable and the TiVo Roamio cable box my wife and I use. 

Almost exactly one year ago, I tried Sling TV, which was significantly cheaper than our cable subscription, but didn’t quite have everything we wanted. (I’ll probably try Sling TV again at some point, as live TV streaming services are getting channel and feature updates all the time. It’s entirely likely that Sling TV could have everything we want, one year later.)

Most recently, I tried Hulu + Live TV, which costs $40 per month. I really liked it! Not only was it cheaper, but it also let us watch live TV and recorded shows and movies outside of the living room, whether in our bedroom or on our mobile devices during a trip.

But there was one thing that my wife and I couldn’t deal with.

Check out what we loved about Hulu + Live TV, and what we didn’t:

OTTAWA — Major companies and government partners are lending their support to Carleton University’s newly established Women in Engineering and Information Technology Program.

The list of supporters includes Mississauga-based construction company EllisDon.

The latest to announce their support for the program also include BlackBerry QNX, CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority), Ericsson, Nokia, Solace, Trend Micro, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, CGI, Gastops, Leonardo DRS, Lockheed Martin Canada, Amdocs and Ross.

The program is officially set to launch this September.

It is being led by Carleton’s Faculty of Engineering and Design with the goal of establishing meaningful partnerships in support of women in STEM.  

The program will host events for women students to build relationships with industry and government partners, create mentorship opportunities, as well as establish a special fund to support allies at Carleton in meeting equity, diversity and inclusion goals.

VR tech to revolutionize commercial driver training

Published

By

Serious Labs seems to have found a way from tragedy to triumph? The Edmonton-based firm designs and manufactures virtual reality simulators to standardize training programs for operators of heavy equipment such as aerial lifts, cranes, forklifts, and commercial trucks. These simulators enable operators to acquire and practice operational skills for the job safety and efficiency in a risk-free virtual environment so they can work more safely and efficiently.

The 2018 Humboldt bus catastrophe sent shock waves across the industry. The tragedy highlighted the need for standardized commercial driver training and testing. It also contributed to the acceleration of the federal government implementing a Mandatory Entry-Level Training (MELT) program for Class 1 & 2 drivers currently being adopted across Canada. MELT is a much more rigorous standard that promotes safety and in-depth practice for new drivers.

Enter Serious Labs. By proposing to harness the power of virtual reality (VR), Serious Labs has earned considerable funding to develop a VR commercial truck driving simulator.

The Government of Alberta has awarded $1 million, and Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) is contributing an additional $2 million for the simulator development. Commercial deployment is estimated to begin in 2024, with the simulator to be made available across Canada and the United States, and with the Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) helping to provide simulator tests to certify that driver trainees have attained the appropriate standard. West Tech Report recently took the opportunity to chat with Serious Labs CEO, Jim Colvin, about the environmental and labour benefits of VR Driver Training, as well as the unique way that Colvin went from angel investor to CEO of the company.

While the world comes out of the initial stages of the pandemic, COVID-19 will be continue to be a threat for some time to come. Companies, such as Zen Graphene, are working on ways to detect the virus and its variants and are on the forefronts of technology.

Nanotechnology firm ZEN Graphene Solutions Ltd. (TSX-Venture:ZEN) (OTCPK:ZENYF), is working to develop technology to help detect the COVID-19 virus and its variants. The firm signed an exclusive agreement with McMaster University to be the global commercializing partner for a newly developed aptamer-based, SARS-CoV-2 rapid detection technology.

This patent-pending technology uses clinical samples from patients and was funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. The test is considered extremely accurate, scalable, saliva-based, affordable, and provides results in under 10 minutes.

Shares were trading up over 5% to $3.07 in early afternoon trade.
