Coming This Fall: New TV Series to Download & Watch Offline

Summer is winding down and your couch has been missing you – it’s time to give it the attention it so desperately needs after the long active months. The impending Fall season this year is FULL of amazing premieres and all the new season starts you’ve been waiting for. Downloading from Netflix? Hulu? HBO?

From tried-and-true favorites to everything new coming up this year, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to record all the best shows to watch offline anytime, anywhere. Here’s our list of must-see new TV coming in the next couple of months.

1. Narcos – Season 3

With the hunt for Pablo Escobar finally at a close after season 2, the DEA is shifting focus to a larger, more intimidating threat: the Cali Cartel. Narcos Season 3 is sure to have a lot of the same issues, just with a brand new enemy. It’s an interesting move for the Netflix original series, but we’re pretty excited to see what happens nonetheless. You can stream and record Narcos on Netflix September 1st.

2. BoJack Horseman – Season 4

One of the funniest, strangest animated satirical comedies streaming online is back with season 4 on Netflix. BoJack Horseman has quickly become one of the most well-known, cameo-blasting hits, with special guests from Jessica Biel to Zach Braff to Sir Mix-A-Lot and beyond. Get ready for some of the most talented voice acting of the year. You can stream and record BoJack Horseman on Netflix September 8th.

3. The Mindy Project – Season 6

The Mindy Project is one of those shows that will drag you into every character, make you laugh uncontrollably, sob at somewhat inappropriate times, and jump for joy at every win. Mindy Kaling is an absolute wonder in the final season of the show’s run. Ready for an emotional roller coaster? Grab a friend, a good seat, and some tissues. You can stream and record The Mindy Project on Hulu September 12th.

4. Curb Your Enthusiasm – Season 9

If you’re one of those people that can handle the squirm-inducing scenarios of Curb Your Enthusiasm, you’re one of many within the cult following. The comedic genius of Larry David’s dense, dry humor is overwhelming in the 9th season of the series. Be prepared to hear a lot of whining about Uber, iPhones and other modern-day happenings. You can stream and record Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO October 1st.

5. Freakish – Season 2

Die-hard zombie apocalypse fan? You’ll probably be into Freakish, a half-hour show that details a group of high school kids and their struggles when mutants suddenly take over. What’s been referred to as The Walking Dead meets The Breakfast Club, Freakish is a charming and creepy series featuring a ton of social media star cameos. You can stream and record Freakish on Hulu October 18th.

6. Stranger Things – Season 2

The Internet quickly obsessed over the child-actor prodigies of Stranger Things. With so much hype after the first original season aired in 2016, fans are aching for more. Eleven and the rest of the crew are coming back for even more monster hunting and butt-kicking. We just recommend keeping the light on… You can stream and record Stranger Things on Netflix starting October 27th.

Where to Watch & Record the U.S. Open 2017

The U.S. Open 2017 tennis championship will crown your laptop screens starting August 28, 2017, and ending on September 10, 2017, live from New York. The games are held annually, and for 117 years running so far, is returning as one of the oldest tennis championships in the world. Are you ready for every slamming serve, backhand smash, and return ace that’s in store?

Prominent sports news outlet, Bleacher Report, had this to say about this years’ top male players:

Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal have been the dominant players in the sport for more than a decade. The expectation has been that when these men step on the court in an important tournament, one of them will find a way to win, with few exceptions. While Stan Wawrinka has found a way to break through on occasion, that fantastic foursome has dominated. One of those four players have won 45 of the last 50 majors.

For the women’s segment, powerhouse athletes are taking the main stage:

On the women’s side, the tournament won’t have its usual luster, as the pregnant Serena Williams will be in New York to root on sister Venus Williams but won’t play. Garbine Muguruza, who defeated Venus in the Wimbledon final, and Simona Halep should both be in a position to make championship runs at the U.S. Open.

Where to Watch & Live Stream the Tournaments

ESPN continues to be the primary host broadcaster in the United States — the U.S. Open will be televised by ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 throughout its two-week run, with live match coverage scheduled from 11 a.m. ET to 11 p.m. through September 4. Fans can watch the matches live as they happen through the official website. And, in addition to the matches domestic coverage, the 2017 US Open is scheduled to be broadcast in more than 200 countries around the world.

Applian User Experience: Building a Successful Video FAQ

Before video capture was even considered, business owners got by with FAQs as a method of providing information for the ease of consumers. But there was always something that could be improved – people see an email address and would prefer to have an answer from the providers themselves. This was the case for Eric Ilasenko, owner of our powerful Replay Video Capture tool.

A professional photographer, Eric came across one problem repeatedly:

“As a professional photographer selling studio portraits of adorable little dancers online, I was spending way too much time having to answer the same questions by phone and in emails from parents who just could not seem to understand how to use the online proofing service that hosts and sells our images. I’m talking an hour or more a day spent answering calls or emails – despite having a FAQ on our site that described everything in detail.”

Then there came the solution – Eric decided to use our Replay Video Capture to record a full-screen demo, displaying a step-by-step instruction process for his audience. This video was then posted to the FAQ page as a contribution to the text.

Replay Video Capture is the best way to make a production quality video recordings from hard-to-record sources. It’s widely used to record online video content or to convert movies to high quality. For Eric, it’s been perfect for utilizing Keynote and multimedia presentations as it’s easy to use with the fully automated screen.

After the video went live on his photography site, Eric said:

“There was about a 75% drop in emails/calls, which left me, an overworked sole proprietor, more time to do the important stuff I need to be doing to help grow my business!”

How Does Replay Video Capture Work?

Replay Video Capture can expertly record streaming online video (and any other video playing on your screen) with perfect quality. If you can watch it, you can save it! Record video from ANY web site regardless of format.

After recording, you can save as just about any file format and access anytime, anywhere! As Eric says:

Love my Applian Capture Suite software big time :-)”
