314w ago - Support for Xbox 360, Internet-enabled TVs, and now the PlayStation 3 allows the new GridCast TV service to deliver high-value Internet video to over 36 million homes today using existing devices.

Press Release: SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Video delivery platform provider GridNetworks today announced support for GridCast TV on the Sony PlayStation 3.

The GridCast TV service, which launched last month, enables content distributors and owners to stream video directly over the Internet to viewers' TVs without requiring a set-top box or any other additional hardware.

GridCast TV uses existing UPnP (universal plug and play) devices such as the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Internet-enabled TVs.

New Firmware Update Beats Blu-ray Hackers, Patches DRM Cracks

200°
315w ago - A new Blu-ray firmware update has fixed a flaw in the format's DRM, which made the discs susceptible to piracy.

The update is for BD+ and makes the format secure once more, after companies like SlySoft, creators of the AnyDVD HD software, bragged about finding a way around the disc's DRM.

Admittedly, someone called James on the SlySoft forums does think that the new update won't hold for long, saying that he "estimates February 2009 for the new BD+ to be defeated."

Affected movies

While the new update doesn't affect all movies, there are many new releases that it does, including: Futurama: Bender's Game, Shine A Light, and X-Files 2. The full list can be found on the SlySoft forums.

Word about the Blu-ray hack first got out in November, where folks at the Doom9 forum found a DRM get around.
