Everything You Need to Know About Disney+

We’ve got great news for Disney fans, or just for all the movie-lovers out there…

All your favorite Disney movies can now be found in a brand new home, Disney+ (pronounced “Disney Plus”). It’s time to say a brief “goodbye” to old classics like “The Lion King”, and new crowd pleasers like “Coco”, who’ll be leaving the other popular streaming sites to live in one handy place… Disney+. Now you can enjoy a full roster of all your favorite high-quality family favorites from the convenience of one central location.

This brand-spanking-new streaming service has just debuted this week, launching officially in the US, Canada and the Netherlands on November 12th. (If you are in Australia or New Zealand, stay tuned for November 19th, as it’s set to release there on that date…)

And while this highly anticipated streaming service has been long-awaited, it definitely holds its fair share of mystery. Luckily, we are here to help you get the latest on your favorite family-friendly movies and shows, so you can browse and capture till your heart’s content

The Fundamentals

Disney+ is a subscription streaming service, so it’s a paid service, but at $6.99 a month (or $69.99 per year) it’s priced competitively with the services you are already subscribing to. The caveat is that it is primed to be the exclusive source to find all of the titles that are proprietary, so you won’t be able to get them on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video anymore. To see them, you’ll need to get a subscription to Disney+. 

However, just like all of the streaming services you know and love, Disney+ will be available to watch online, on RokuTV or streaming devices, or AppleTV and more.

What’s On?

Disney+ will act and function a lot like your favorite streaming services, but it will exclusively feature content from Disney and its partners. Expect to see titles from: 

  • Pixar 
  • Marvel Studio 
  • Star Wars & Lucasfilm 
  • Twentieth Century Fox 
  • National Geographic 
  • The Simpsons
  • and more… 

Maybe one of the coolest features is that besides getting your favorite family-friendly titles, Disney+ will also begin production on original movies and series. The latest offerings? A live-action remake of “Lady and the Tramp” and a Star Wars live-action drama series: “The Mandalorian”. The two brand new features will headline the new Disney+ lineup.

What’s New on Netflix: Everything Leaving & Coming this November

It’s happening again.

Netflix is updating it’s roster for the season, which means more changes are due on our Netflix queues. And while this means we have plenty of great holiday movies to look forward to, and some very highly anticipated show offerings like The Crown, The Good Place, The Irishman, and more, it does signal a sad end for some of our favorite movies and series that have been making the rounds on the popular streaming site these last few months. 

Luckily, with Replay Video Capture, you really don’t have a reason to miss your favorite shows and movies before they disappear into the streaming ether for the foreseeable future. You can still record your favorites before the clock runs out on them. 

While we prepare to greet some hotly anticipated titles in the month ahead, let’s take a look back at some of the ones you can still catch and record on Netflix before November bids them adieu. 

What’s On It’s Way Out?

November 11

While it’s always a bit hard to say goodbye to those “almost watched” picks on the queue, there are still some things we are revving our engines to get ready to see. 

What Are We Looking Forward To?

The Crown, (Season 3)

For everyone who has been anxiously awaiting the next stylish installment of Netflix original “The Crown”, this November, your wait is finally over. After having two critically acclaimed seasons about the British monarchy with Claire Foy and Matt Smith at the helm, the third season is unique in that the entire royal family is recast as viewers are introduced to the next era of Her Royal Highness’s England.

The Good Place, (Season 4)

In the final season of this wildly popular fan favorite, viewers will follow the original gang as they try their last chance to get into The Good Place. Will they make it?

The Irishman (2019)

In Martin Scorsese’s turn at producing and directing a Netflix original, we get a crime drama to end all crime dramas. This scorcher stars Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino, playing Frank Sheehan, Marty Bufalino and Jimmy Hoffa, respectively. If you love mafia movies, you won’t want to miss this one, with the masters of mob cinema at the helm. CGI graphics make it possible to see all of these actors play younger versions of themselves onscreen. Pretty incredible.

Euphoria/Euforia (2019)

This original new drama centers around two brothers who have been living very different lives. When an unfortunate life circumstance hits them both, they are reunited once again. In this drama, both will be forced to discover the mysterious link that further draws them together.

Queer Eye: We’re In Japan! (Season 5)

In this special fifth season, the Fab Five take their talents to Tokyo to help four special participants desperately in need of a makeover. As they help their new friends tackle the areas in their lives that need extra special TLC, the team meet their biggest challenge yet as they navigate a new language, a new culture and new ways to make over a life in-style. Kawai!

Hache (Season 1)

In this Spanish thriller set in 1960’s Barcelona, prostitute Helena finds herself involved in the burgeoning heroine scene as she attempts to make a better life for herself and her family. At turns stylish and sexy, this one is not to be missed!

We’ve listed some highlights, but there are quite a few titles that are leaving the streaming service, which you won’t want to miss out on. A whole slew of Disney movies are also taking flight, in anticipation of Disney’s newest streaming site, Disney+. Don’t miss out on them here, but stay tuned to learn how to watch and capture your favorites with Replay Video Capture.

Will you make it out?

What is Roku? Our Favorite Streaming Device

By now, most of us are familiar with the incredible options these days for streaming movies and series online. 

When viewers are looking for great family viewing, or a favorite series, or even fascinating documentaries to watch or even record, we’ve gotten used to turning to streaming giants like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video.

It’s nice to think that  we can find and discover new favorites to watch anytime we get online, and that the options are endless. With that in mind, it might be helpful to know that there is a new contender that’s making its way on the scene, and it is expanding those options even more. Enter: Roku.

What is Roku?

Roku is a set-top box streaming device that allows you to watch your favorite content online, whether it’s free (think YouTube), or from a paid subscription service like Hulu or Netflix or HBO. It plugs right into your TV, so if you have an HDMI input, you are ready to set up Roku and let it get to work for you. 

Roku is also a really  great option for people looking to cut ties with their cable company. It’s not a subscription service, but a device that ends up paying for itself as you watch more and more content online from your favorite services. It even has offerings that are free, in case you aren’t signed up for any subscriptions yet. 

Do You Need Internet for Roku to Work?

Roku is a handy little device that allows you to access basically any movie or series that you can find worldwide, and even some of the more difficult to find channels. That being said though, you’ll need a Wifi connection or high-speed internet to get Roku to work for you. 

A huge plus? It gives you the option to stream directly from your computer, phone or USB to watch your own saved content on your big screen. Through its proprietary channel “Plex”, Roku gives you the option to open and watch videos saved on your hard drive, which can ultimately save you the need to rely only on your old school media players or extra devices. It’s sort of an all-in-one package, and that makes it awesome. It offers a number of models, so you are sure to find one that fits your lifestyle best. 

Is There Anything Roku Can’t Do?

It’s not foolproof. Even with the rise in Roku’s popularity in recent months, it still is working daily to improve its functionality to make itself an indispensable part of your cord cutting toolkit. While it offers a lot of benefits and options, there still remains the reality that it isn’t ready to do it all, yet

As an example, because it’s not a subscription service, for each TV in your home, you will still need to purchase a separate Roku device. Also, even while it maintains an excellent catalog of channels and apps, you still won’t really be able to record certain titles, making it impractical if you are used to watching and saving your favorite content online.

Thankfully, it’s easy to take a great thing, and make it even better.

The Perfect Match-up

When you pair up Roku with Replay Media Catcher, you have a great option to watch and record virtually any content online; perfect if you are looking for a first step in freedom from your service provider. Roku gives you nearly endless options to find your favorites online, and Replay Media Catcher makes it possible to stream them and save them. Even if you are still happily connected with your cable company and just want more options, this power duo acts as the perfect team player to make your viewing options even greater.

Online streaming giants Netflix and Amazon Prime Video offer up their fair share of creepy content; from the most unsettling and disturbing creature features of neglect, to some of the most vile acts of the human psyche. If you are a true crime connoisseur, then you definitely won’t want to miss the chance to capture the most shocking documentaries and series to watch again and dissect with friends.

Some of our most frightening picks that are streaming online now?

The Moors Murders (2009)


Catch “The Moors Murders” on Amazon Prime Video!

When children in the English city of Manchester started disappearing in the mid-1960s, hardly anyone could believe that couple Ian Brady and Myrna Hindly could be behind such acts of depravity. When residents began to learn the fate of the missing children and teens, the whole country was held captive of their own disbelief. In a dramatized documentary that is sure to shock you, the events are retold in shocking detail. Not to be missed.

The Keepers (2017)


Catch “The Keepers” on Netflix!

In this uber-popular series from Netflix, this documentary follows the as yet unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a popular nun and teacher at Archbishop Keough Catholic school. As if the crime wasn’t horrifying enough, the speculation behind Sister Cathy’s murder will shock you.  She may have been a target for the ultimate sinister motive: She was on the verge of exposing a possible sex-crime ring within the Catholic church. A must-watch selection that will have you questioning everything you believe in.

Evil Genius: the True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist (2018)


Catch “Evil Genius: the True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist” on Netflix!

In a series that has you second-guessing if such occurrences could happen in real life (Yes, they can), “Evil Genius” recounts the bizarre events that began with a pizza delivery man holding up a bank, eventually leading to him exploding in police custody as a collar bomb detonates, leaving investigators searching for answers. A grisly crime that should be enough to create its own series is only the beginning here. What looked initially like a bank heist gone wrong suddenly takes twists and turns as the plot thickens and involves more and more complex suspects. Was he a criminal or actually a hostage? Make sure to check out this limited series with an explosive payoff as the real mastermind is revealed.

Cropsey (2009)


Catch “Cropsey” on Amazon Prime!

From our earliest fears of The BoogeyMan, we are often calmed by the assurance that he doesn’t actually exist. But what if it turns out that those fears are absolutely true? In this documentary, filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio go back to their hometown to investigate the mysteries surrounding the most notorious urban legend of their youth — only to discover that the torturer and murderer of local children really was just as frighteningly real as they had always suspected.

Rats (2016)


Catch “Rats” on Netflix!

In a documentary that isn’t as much about crime as it is a macabre nightmarescape, this made the list because it is guaranteed to keep you up at night. Legendary documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock ventures into rat-infested areas around the world, investigating the horrifying origins of infestations as well as the dubious practices employed to rid the heaving swarms of vermin by any means necessary. In what has been called a “documentary horror film”, this isn’t for the faint of heart.

Killer Legends (2014)


Catch “Killer Legends” on Amazon Prime Video!

Because no one can really get enough of urban legends, this creepy doc takes a look at some of the childhood tales of terror we’ve become so familiar with and examines their origins — some of which might completely shock you. Get ready to have your childhood beliefs turned upside down, in the creepiest possible ways.

Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes (2019)


Catch “Conversations with a Killer” on Netflix!

The story of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity recently, and with good reason… It is nearly impossible for most of us to consider how the mind of a serial killer works, especially when the grisliest acts imaginable come from where you least suspect them. This docu-series takes us even deeper into the mind and motivations of Ted Bundy by offering up footage of interviews with the people in Bundy’s life who knew him best, including the killer himself.

Wild, Wild Country (2018)


Catch “Wild, Wild Country” on Netflix!

In the beginning, don’t all of our motivations come from a good place? When modern guru Bhagvan Shree sets up a colony for his followers in rural Oregon, his original aim was to build a community of worship. As with all our best laid plans, when the colony found themselves facing persecution from the local community, efforts to protect the colony descend into cult-like chaos at a national level. In a truly wild documentary, this insanely popular series takes you on the mind-bending ride of a lifetime. You won’t want to miss a single second. 

As the weather gets colder and the nights start to creep in a little earlier, there’s no better way to freak yourself out than by binge-watching some of the best true crime documentaries and series online now. Thanks to Replay Video Capture, you can record and save the ones you want to rewatch to your heart’s content.

Game On! Your NFL Game Day Tailgate Party Checklist

NFL season is here. The game we’ve all been waiting for all year is finally making its season debut this week.

And if you are like most of us, you’ve been doing everything you can to get prepped for the best matchups of the season.

Can Cleveland deliver on the pre-season hype with star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. as their newest addition?  And will the Patriots be able to hold onto the top spot of the AFC East this year? 

With all that excitement, there’s no better way to kickoff the season than with an epic tailgate party! We can’t think of a better way to cap off this huge weekend than getting your friends together and watching the most anticipated event of the fall! And while everyone will undoubtedly be itching to catch the game that has their favorite teams facing off, what about the other games running? There’s no doubt that you don’t want to miss any of the games that are playing (and probably streaming) concurrently. 

Luckily, we’re here to help you get ready for the season, with a checklist of everything you’ll need to watch the first games of the season with your friends in style.  And those games you want to catch up on this week after the party? Yeah, we’ve got you covered there, too. 

Fire up the grill, tune into ESPN.com,  hit record on the latest version of Replay Media Capture, and get ready to rock and roll this NFL season. 

Have you got everything you need?

A Great Tailgate Party Spread

You know a party really isn’t a party without great food and drinks. Dig through your best recipes and put together a great collection of party food and appetizers for all your tailgate party guests. (Hint: We really love the Argentinian skewers, but there are so many great alternatives for any food preferences…)

Cozy Cover-Ups to Keep Warm

One of the coolest things about tailgating is enjoying the first traces of Fall outside with your friends, often over a cooler of drinks, enjoying the heat from the grill.  Whether you choose to watch in your home or in the stadium or anywhere else… Fall is nearly here, and you don’t want to get stuck when the breeze hits without something to wrap up in. 

Make sure you’re not caught in the cold without:

  • Blankets
  • Sweaters (even better if they are sporting your favorite team!)
  • Cover-ups 

No judgement here… Even if they look a little silly, the warmer the better! 

Party Essentials & Utilities

It’s probably not the most  fun part of the party to think about, but making sure you’ve got your party essentials in place is crucial. What’s most likely the least fun part of party planning may be your biggest lifesaver. Thinking ahead will save you so much time (and cleanup) in the future. What do you need?

  • Food essentials: Utensils, cups, plates and napkins are a great start
  • Bags of all sizes: You’ll need these for easy cleanup… Big ones to collect trash, and small ones to save leftover food. 
  • Ice, ice, baby: It goes without saying: you want to make sure you’ve got what you need to keep food fresh and drinks cold. 

For the environmentally conscious, there are also plenty of sustainable and biodegradable options so you don’t create a huge carbon footprint to have a great tailgate. 

An Incredible Playlist 

While you wait for the game to start, or even if you want to get down during the half, having a killer playlist is half the fun. We especially love these jams to get hyped for the big game, but there are so many more to suit the vibe of any party! 

Games, Games, and More Games

While we are on the subject: some of the best parties are the ones where everyone can indulge their playful sides… That’s right, it’s so key for your party crew  to be able to stretch their legs, stretch their brains and have a bit of fun between halves or while they wait. Or, if you’re feeling creative, you could even build your gameplay into the football game… For every touchdown, guests can do a dance, complete a dare, or anything else you can invent. The important thing here is to keep it fun! 

Some of our favorites? Outscord has a great compilation of DIY games that are great for almost any party!
