No AFTVnewscast podcast episode this week

I won’t be releasing an episode of my AFTVnewscast podcast this week. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t have as much time as I used to so I’ll be skipping weeks more often. I’ll do my best to not miss two weeks in a row, so you can expect an episode next week.

    As long as you keep updating the website. I worry if they site no longer gets updates as I remember some websites that were updated everyday then just abandoned without warning and after months of no updates I stooped going to them.

      You’ve got nothing to worry about. I have no intention in abandoning the site or even reducing the number of articles.

      I enjoy doing the podcast, but between prepping, streaming/recording, editing, and posting, it takes up a big chunk of my Friday and Saturday. Since only a small portion of site visitors watch/listen to the podcast, it’s the biggest bang-for-my-time to skip a week here and there.

      Usually when I skip a week, I use the time to work on bigger projects for the site. It has been very helpful. Enough that I’m seriously considering changing up the format of the podcast so it’s more flexible. More on that later though.

    How can we ask questions or get comments to you? Only during the live episode? It just seems inefficient. I personally can never make the live episode. When I end up listening to the podcast, the questions are 75% repeats. Vetting them first would be much better. I really don’t need to hear that you don’t have a release date for a next gen device, or when the new OS is coming to the FTV1, or how to root an unrootable device.

    I have a question that I haven’t heard asked nor answered:
    Does Ad-Away no longer work for the in-app advertisements? When the Xfinity app was working, the ad-blocker would stop ads from playing when there are normal commercial breaks. But the newer apps produced by the networks like FX, USA, and many more are riddled with ads that can’t be blocked by standard ad-away. Would rolling back to the old OS and using an Xposed ad-blocker be an option?

    DirectTVNow finally got me to start paying for my own “cable” subscription. Before I used a Slingbox setup at my parents house. But DTVNow doesn’t have a DVR (and even if it did, I don’t want to fast forward thru commercials). As already mentioned, the apps are riddled with ads. Suffice to say, I’m consistently pushed back to Kodi and other methods of viewing content. If I can’t find an ad-free solution via ad-blockers it’s hard to justify DTVNow.
