XTV, a private channel designed for Roku has been banned. The channel which had been heavily promoted on facebook groups and a number of websites provided numerous links to copyrighted material. Roku recently shut down the channel citing a copyright complaint. This should not be a surprise to anyone. The entertainment industry has been focusing more and more on the distribution of copyrighted content over the past few years as streaming has become more and more popular.
The ACC is one of the more open conferences in college sports and that’s good news to fans. While there are a number of major ACC football and basketball games on cable channels like ESPN and Fox Sports ACC fans have an easy and free way to watch at least one game online for free every weekend. Of course, just in case you didn’t think of it you can also watch weekly ACC games and more on TV with an antenna.
If you’re visiting this website, most likely it’s because you desire to find out if being a cord cutter can save money or because you already took the leap and are interested in seeing if you can cut a few more corners. My first experience with becoming a cord cutter took place in 2010 when a buddy of mine allowed me to store his smart TV in my living room because he didn’t have a place to put a giant 42 inch TV up. I subscribed to Hulu, because it had more TV offerings than Netflix did.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
