The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 3rd 2014

IW-Oscars

This week it finally happened, Lovefilm is no more, it has now been completely consumed by its Amazon overlords and is now known as Amazon Prime and something that operates totally through your Amazon account should you have one. At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – February 24th 2014

IW-Jaws

A few weeks back you may have read me talking about the entertainment package that Now TV were now offering alongside movies and sport accessible through their box or online that was £4.99 a month and gave you access to shows from HBO showing in the UK through Sky Atlantic. Unless you have been in […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – February 18th 2014

Peter-Sarsgaard-and-Cate-Blanchett-in-Blue-Jasmine

Kind of a good news/bad news situation this week. Bad news for those of us who like to watch sitcoms of 30 minutes in length whilst we eat dinner during the week, Channel 4 has decided to remove most of its good content including Peep Show, The IT Crowd and Black Books from Netflix and […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – February 11th 2014

The-HeyUGuys-Instant-Watching-Guide-Rear-Window

  Remember last year when through its Amazon overlords Lovefilm put several pilots online including the pretty good failed Zombieland pilot? Well, they are at it again with ten new pilots, none of which have committed to series yet but with which the lucky few will go to one of those full season exclusive type deals […]



View from the Bottom Shelf: The Video Shop is dead….R.I.P

Closed Blockbuster Store

Every day now as I arrive back at Northwood train station from my day job, it sits there staring me in the face.  Big, blue, empty and sad, the shell of Blockbuster Video whose bones have been picked clean by bargain hunters over the last month and whose dead carcass now sits there as an […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – January 6th 2014

Big Ass Spider

Man is there a lot of new content on streaming services this week. There are literally hundreds of new titles available for your viewing pleasure, I couldn’t possibly have written about all of it because I would be writing into next week! Just know that there is something there for everyone whether your bag is […]



The Top Ten Straight to DVD/VOD films of 2013

Best-Vod-DVD-of-2013

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

I think that 2013 will be seen as a massive turning point in terms of how media is delivered into your home and how it is consumed. More than any other year, 2013 signified the decline of traditional cinema and release patterns. The multiplex seems more dominated than ever by the big blockbuster and sequels […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – Christmas 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewer's-Guide

So here we are in Christmas week, most of the usual streaming companies have done well for you so that you won’t be too bored post turkey when you have to tolerate the family. Apart from Now TV though, there is still a serious lack of Christmas themed films out there which is a disappointment […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – December 16th 2013

Adventure Time

Some pretty good titles this week in the build up to Christmas when Now TV will suddenly dominate the week with all the new content they got coming. The titles of note this week are as follows:  Cloud Atlas (2012) Take an unfilmable book, add the sibling directors of The Matrix and Speed Racer and the […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – November 25th 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewer's-Guide

I made my Slim Pickings joke last week and this week, I got nothing. Things are a bit better this week anyway with a nice mixture of the new, the old and the quirky independent that has gone straight to VOD. I imagine things will pick up massively into December as Now TV adds Iron […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – November 18th 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewer's-Guide

Slim Pickens was an actor known for One Eyed Jacks, Blazing Saddles and of course Dr Strangelove. What you get this week is not Pickens the actor iconically riding the bomb down to the ground in the Stanley Kubrick classic or any kind of online retrospective of his work, but slim pickings in terms of […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – November 4th 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewer's-Guide

Well it finally happened; Now TV added a superb catch up/live option for their TV channels including Sky Atlantic, Living, Fox and even UK Gold! So now for just £4.99 a month you can get shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Hannibal and Eastbound and Down as they happen or whenever you want. […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide 23rd September 2013

Speed Racer

It’s oh so quiet….Not much to report on this week really. Things will probably kick up a gear as the dark nights draw in further and the kids get a week off at some point in October. About the best thing I could write about at the moment really is how good is the final […]



Get Ready for the Ultra HD Experience

(Image Source: Sony Website) Glancing at the technology pages of the Sunday papers is like a child standing on tiptoes peering into a window to the future. So much is made of the next big thing, we’re always coveting the next great leap in technology and with the ever-increasing pace of advancement there’s always something […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 12th 2013

The Prestige

What I said last time about the summer being a fairly quiet time for the streaming world, please disregard. Rather than wait for the autumn when people are more inclined to slump on a sofa in front of the tube, Netflix, Lovefilm and a new contender have decided that everyone just loves good movies and […]



Ledley King discusses both his past and his future at the launch of Tottenham Turfies

Tottenham Turfies

While much of the spotlight aimed in the direction of Tottenham Hotspur football club is Gareth Bale orientated at present, it was a pleasant distraction to discover the London outfit’s latest initiative, as they present Tottenham Turfies – an innovative digital gaming platform aimed at young children, developed by Hangar Seven. With a keen eye […]



Now TV launches £10 Set Top Box

NOW TV Box and Remote 01

Last year Sky launched Now TV, a pay as you go service which allows users to pay for individual movies or subscribe to a package drawn from the Sky Movies channels. This placed the service, at a slightly higher cost, in the same arena as Netflix and Lovefilm services and with the launch of the […]



Making Movie Music with Maserati and Bowers & Wilkins

Bowers and Wilkins - Abbey Road

Abbey Road Studios is famous for so many reasons whether that’s The Beatles, Pink Floyd or one of the other multitudes of music artists that have recorded there. For me, Abbey Road is a magical place as it’s where so many of my favourite film scores have been recorded. Just some of those include the […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Viewer’s Guide – June 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewers-Guide-June-2013

Remember ten years ago when you would be in HMV looking at a DVD box set of something like The West Wing and then unfolding the twenty pound note in your pocket and wondering whether to part with all that cash for something you had never seen? You had just heard that someone somewhere liked it, […]



The HeyUGuys Upgrade – Solid State Drive Install

Samsung Solid State Hard Drive

It’s been a little while since we were asked to do a tech review of something but when Samsung offered us the chance to have a play with their new Solid State drives, we jumped at the chance. Solid State drives (SSD) have been around for a little while now but have always come with […]



iCrayon Review

iCrayon

Chances are, if you use a tablet or a large smartphone for anything other than stabbing away at twitter all day, you’ll have considered getting a stylus for your device. I bought one shortly after I first discovered Draw Something, and haven’t used it since that fortnight of late-night doodling. Some artists have high-end styluses […]
