A new Summer-approved batch of movies and TV shows are already streaming on your favorite online video sites this June, while a handful of great stuff is about to leave Netflix (maybe forever). Luckily, Replay Video Capture is built for capturing the Netflix content you want to keep… before it’s too late!
So, check out all of the cool shows below. Replay Video Capture will record them all – allowing you to watch your favorite shows anytime, anywhere, on any device.
The French Open Tennis tournament at Paris’ Roland Garros is known for the drama that unfolds on its storied clay courts. The French Open is the second annual Grand Slam event on the pro tennis calendar, nearly single handedly responsible for modern players’ continued focus on clay court tennis play.
Defending champion and nine time French Open winner, Rafael Nadal will look to upset world number one Novak Djokovic but the fans will be cheering for yet another Nadal vs Roger Federer final. World number three Andy Murray will look to bolster his own Major Championship resume with a visit from the UK while the young Montenegran up and comer Milos Raonic has tennis savants on upset alert.
Spring is here! The months are flying by and so are on-demand streaming options on the Netflix. Never feel conflicted again about what to watch. Available already (or before April ends) are a few of the movie and TV titles we’re firing up Replay Video Capture for… before they’re gone again.
This Nicolas Cage-led US history thriller stands alone. The perfect mix of unbelievable action and entertaining mystery, this family-friendly PG romp somehow makes the Founding Fathers seem undeniably interesting.
Director Darren Aaronofsky’s latest project – a Bible Epic starring Russel Crowe, Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly. Fun fact: The scenes on the Arc are shot on a real Arc, which they built for the film and which survived Hurricane Sandy.
Feeling like getting scared? This new school horror film doesn’t rely on gimmicks, handheld camera work or possession themes for a change. With a genuine plot surrounding a single mother and her son, this is a chilling movie… perfect before bed (not really).
Another huge TV project from Marvel. Another Netflix original show. Don’t miss it. From the comic book pages to streaming on-demand, the story of a blind lawyer turned crime-fighter is much grittier than expected, which we love!
Much has been said of the Golden Age of television today, and now, more than ever, more is being done to take the TV out of the box and onto your more savvy technological devices. We’ve been in this industry for a long time and there has never been a better time to unplug from TV subscriptions and go in for online media subscriptions and computer software (like us!). Here’s why:
THE CABLE COMPANY IS NOT YOUR FRIEND
It’s not difficult to notice your cable package getting more and more expensive every year. Analysts have discovered that the price of TV subscriptions have increased 32% over the last five years. At this rate, it’s already increasing faster than inflation. So, even if you’re in that steady job, you’ll need a raise every time you renew your platform to watch Judge Judy. Not to mention the Net Neutrality debacle to strangle the open playing field for Internet speed (we recommend watching this funny and honest segment by John Oliver for context) Basically, media companies are realizing that the new age of online content is happening like a tsunami and they want to tie you to the weight that is a cable package.
MORE CONTENT FOR LESS EFFORT (AND MONEY)
There are so many great services online to find original content, television shows, and full-length movies. And, much of it involves very little heavy lifting on your end. Not only do you get to create your own “playlists” or queues of content to watch, but also you no longer get the incessant noise of near constant commercials. Here are some of our quick tips on the different sources for your “new cable”:
HBOGo: It’s not TV, indeed. HBO announced they are working on a subscription-only plan that doesn’t even need a cable provider, but for now, you can still access archives of award-winning television and monthly new episodes and movies online.
Netflix: Everyone’s favorite new media platform, Netflix has been breaking the mold with their original content and providing endless hours of syndicated TV and hundreds of great movies streaming. Additionally, they refresh their stock monthly.
Amazon Prime: Making news with their Golden Globe-winning “Transparent”, Amazon has been making waves in original content as well with their Instant Video subscription. Not to mention, they have a different hold on networks and studios, so they offer different options than Netflix has, and can’t get.
Google Chromecast: This is a pay-as-you-go service and TV plug-in device, similar to On Demand Movies (or Xbox, Apple TV, etc), wherein you pay for films you’d like to see. Many of them are recently released to theaters or just out to the public. There is also a ton of content if you synch your HULU Plus account and “cast” from there. Pretty much any computer screen can be “casted” to your television, so it makes YouTube a whole new world of entertainment.
This is just a sampling and a generalized description of the options that are open to the cord-cutters out there. Sure, some research is involved, but getting an extra $50 to $150 back in your wallet every month is definitely worth it.
GET EVERYTHING YOU NEED
But what about live TV? With services like Pluto TV providing options for news and music channels, and more and more major networks making their primetime events streaming, for example the Super Bowl will be online for free for eleven hours (including pre and post-game coverage); it’s only fitting that the future is adapting to a whole audience of chord-cutters. In fact, geography doesn’t even matter if you integrate a VPN service to allow you to tiptoe over international restrictions to access sites like BBC.
Sure, there are now more places to find great content, but what’s the next step in storing and re-watching the media you love? Thankfully products like Replay Video Capture and our Replay Capture Suite can take all of the shows and movies you love, and keep them for “re-runs” whenever you’d like. You can also record and capture one-time streaming events or programs while you’re not around or at your computer.
With all of these options out there, it only makes sense to make the leap into this brave new cordless world. And, we’ll be here to guide you confidently through it!
Netflix is constantly rearranging its offerings of movies and television shows, which means that every month, there’s a whole new batch to view and fall in love with. Unfortunately, that also means that another handful of great cinema gets pushed off streaming. Here are our picks for you to hurry and record with Replay Video Capture before they disappear online (at least, for free – for now).
GHOSTBUSTERS I & II: This is the ideal 80s movie, made complete with campy humor, heart throughout, suspicious special effects, and Bill Murray. Recording these two enjoyable pieces of cinematic charm is a wise move, so you can enjoy them when you’ve got nothing to watch. Save them for a long rainy day, and rejoice in melting giant marshmallows in hot chocolate.
BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA:Francis Ford Coppola’s amazing tribute to the classic horror tale has more juicy trivia in it than most mystery thrillers. One of the most well known elements of the film are the in-camera effects that Coppola insisted on. After firing a team of effect supervisors, he hired his 29 year-old son, Roman, to take the helm. Look for them and read up, it’s pretty magical. Oh, and the movie itself is brilliant with performances by Gary Oldman as Dracula and Anthony Hopkins as Van Helsing.
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: A sci-fi pillar, this television show proved that a complex space series could function without the Star Trek umbrella. Unlike the latter more episodic-based television, BSG retains a narrative that stretches over four seasons to unveil a rich cast of characters and compelling plot. After a terrifyingly advanced enemy (the Cylons) destroys the 12 colonies, a fleet of military and civilian ships are the only thing remaining of humanity, where they are left traveling through space to find the mythical Earth. Even if sci-fi isn’t your thing, BSG makes everyone a believer. By recording and having the series on-hand, you can get anyone at anytime on the Battlestar bandwagon.
MEAN GIRLS: This 2004 movie is one that is a staple for a particular generation – for what it’s worth – and is the stuff of sound bytes and repeatable quotes. You’ll be wearing pink on Wednesdays after Mean Girls marathons. It is the best teen film since Clueless and with a screenwriter like Tina Fey behind it; you know it’s full of perfect one-liners and comedic timing. Enjoy the more sober, less troubled Lindsay Lohan and save this movie for the next round of teenagers who need a lesson on how to survive high school and beyond.
So what are you waiting for? These cinematic gems are leaving Netflix Streaming in a few days, so fire up your Replay Video Capture and record your favorites for future repeat watchings!
Sometimes the hardest part of watching a movie is simply picking one out. To help you avoid those cinematic confrontations, here’s a list of Netflix Streaming movies and shows that we’re super into right now. In fact, feel free to “win the war” and schedule Netflix to record with Replay Video Capture even when you’re away. So when the time comes, you’ve got some serious ammo ready. You’re welcome!
Bob’s Burgers: Your new answer to the Simpsons. This adult cartoon is hilarious in all the right places and a perfect way to get some giggles when you come home after a long day of work. Without the annoying commercials, animated shows like this one are totally worth the time.
End Of Watch: Not exactly family-friendly, but this riveting thriller about Los Angeles cops is intense and feels real enough that you walk away with a new perspective of police work. Amazingly acted, this emotionally gripping story is worth sitting through.
Muscle Shoals: A top-notch music documentary for those interested in rock, blues, and soul. Illustrating the sounds that seeped from the small Alabama town, Muscle Shoals during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the films features cameos from Aretha Franklin, Mick Jagger, Bono and Alicia Keys. You’ll be tapping your foot the whole time.
Drinking Buddies: This under-rated indie comedy about two friends who take a vacation with their significant others is a far cry from the rom-com nightmares. If you’re looking for the realism, humor, tension and feel-goodness that actual relationships bring, then this one should top the list.
Oh, and you should definitely record these now rather than later because Netflix has a tendency to discontinue streaming movies and crush your Instant Queue to smithereens. Plus, we think you might just want to watch these again, so recording them with Replay Video Capture is highly recommended.

From Stu, one of our best customers and sources of information:
Jim Louderback, the editor of PC Mag, made a mention that his favorite add-on no longer works. He was referring to your Slingbox recorder. This was done on his podcast – What’s New Now? (July 21)
Looks like Sling is going to be facing more competition – not just from Sony’s LocationFree, but also new companies called HAVA and AirEpoch. It’s going to be hard to maintain the encryption policy, especially if the competition is open to recording.
I predict that there will be a permanent recording solution for Slingbox devices by January 1, 2007. Or even earlier if they want to HAVA good Christmas season.
From Applian’s standpoint, here’s the solution to the SlingBox encryption and At-Large Recorder compatibility issue: It would be great if SlingPlayer could play an encrypted feed that At-Large Recorder captures. SlingPlayer would just need to recognize a specific file extension to launch, which At-Large Recorder could easily save files with. In this way, customers could record, and Sling stays protected. How about it Sling? (Cross Posted at SlingCommunity.com)
