Channels brings Khan Academy to Television



Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 11.41.07 AMKhan Academy was founded in 2006 by Salman Khan who started tutoring a cousin remotely using Yahoo! Doodle. After creating a few videos he decided to move them to YouTube. Today, Khan Academy’s mission is to “provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. All of our resources are completely free forever, regardless of whether you’re a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology.”

So why is this so important? The videos are hosted on YouTube and are free to anyone, anywhere, who has a computer or tablet and an internet connection. Most of the courses are pre-college and allow learners to take ownership of their education. Khan Academy is designed for computers and tablets, but with Mohu’s Channels, the lessons can be streamed directly to a TV, turning the TV into a vehicle for learning and the living room into a lecture hall.

The premise is simple. Khan Academy hosts, via YouTube, hundreds of mini-lectures on math, history, finance, Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 11.46.10 AMeconomics, physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy and computer science. One of the simple, but most innovative features of many of the videos is that they abandon a traditional “lecture” format and instead the instructor walks the student through the  problem solving process using just a dark screen, colored “markers” and a voice-over. Listening and watching the instructor demonstrate his thought process (and make mistakes in real time) is less daunting to the viewer and the colored markers make the lectures more engaging.

Khan Academy also includes test prep for several standardized tests including the SAT. The latest development for Khan Academy is its partnership with the College Board to create free online test-prep materials for the redesigned SAT which debuts in 2016. With parents paying up to $900 for test preparation classes this next step could help close the income gap  among students often seen in standardized tests.

In future blogs Mohu will feature the weird and wonderful content available on YouTube. And with Channels coming out soon all this content can be streamed directly to your TV.







Mohu Continues to Gain Momentum With 700% Growth in 2012



Antenna Manufacturer Forecasts 300% Growth in 2013 as it Expands into Major Retail

Raleigh, NC. – March 5, 2013 – Today Mohu announced revenue grew 700% last year and is expected to increase 300% in 2013. Since introducing the Leaf antenna in March 2011, the company has quickly positioned itself as a leader in the “cord-cutting” movement currently underway in the United States. Mohu estimates it has saved its customers more than $220 million in monthly cable and satellite bills.

Yahoo!/CNBC recently released its annual Top 10 Gadget list, and in it named the Mohu Leaf among the top ranking products alongside the Apple iPad and Amazon Kindle. Throughout 2012, the Leaf ranked second in the Television and Video category on Amazon.com just behind the Apple TV. The technology behind the paper-thin Leaf antenna is a byproduct of research conducted for the United States Navy by Mohu’s engineers and was based on a discreet mud flap antenna designed for use on armored vehicles More →







Live Sports – Can you cut the cord without cutting it?

Live Sports

Although it’s easy to find websites online where you can stream live sports / games, it’s illegal. Even if you were able to find a decent streaming website, they are monitored so heavily that it would likely get shut down during the game.

“If you are cutting the cable bill and streaming content…we have discovered probably the best thing you will ever plug into your HDTV. It’s the paper-thin HDTV antenna from Mohu.”

-HDTV Magazine

Most of your favorite live sports events can be watched free over-the-air with a Mohu Leaf Antenna!

“A lot of customers can live with Netflix, an antenna and YouTube and they’d be pretty happy,” Ergen said.

Broadcast TV

The Leaf Ultimate Indoor HDTV Antenna enables you to watch over-the-air broadcast TV channels without having a monthly cable bill.

The antenna’s paper-thin, low profile design allows it to receive broadcast TV while blending into your home’s decor.

Our team just spent the last week in Vegas attending the 2013 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) and simplicity was definitely at the forefront of the event.

“Keep it simple, CE makers,” says Scott Hess, Senior VP of Human Intelligence at Spark Communications, in an interview with Beet.TV. Manufacturers, then, would be wise to avoid too-much complexity and instead go for the idea of “the big easy” he told Beet.TV.

At CES we embraced the world’s most exciting and innovative electronics by some of the most successful companies in the world. 20,000 new products were launched this year at the Las Vegas Convention Center, which took up enough space to cover 393 basketball courts, just to give you an idea More →







How to Watch TV for free!



Watch TV for Free

Name one cable or satellite provider who is not increasing their rates next year. Don’t worry, we’ll wait Smile for Free TV

Whenever a contract is up for renewal between a cable or satellite provider and its broadcasters, you can pretty much count on an increase in your bill. Watch TV for free on your terms and don’t let money hungry corporations control your TV viewing experience. Not only does free broadcast TV still exist, it’s available in full HD without the need for an ugly pair of rabbit ears.

By using an indoor HDTV antenna, you can watch broadcast TV over-the-air, which by the way, produces a better quality picture than cable or satellite providers can offer. There are many ways to cut the cord with your cable or satellite provider so that you can watch TV for free.

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need a computer science degree or a collection of nerdy gadgets to successfully cut the cord and watch tv for free. Join the 54 million Americans who are now watching FREE TV in full HD More →







Cutting the cord



If you are considering cutting the cord with your cable provider, you aren’t the only one.  2.65 million Americans have cancelled cable subscriptions from 2008-2011, according to a Convergence Consulting Group report. It is projected that by the end of the year, the number of people cutting the cord will reach 3.58 million.

Cutting the Cord

For the price that most Americans pay for cable every year, they could delight in a weekend getaway. The average cable bill in the U.S. is over $80 a month and the annual price increase exceeds 5%. For many of us, the cost outweighs the value, and that’s why we created the Leaf® indoor HDTV antenna. Check out how much you can save here! It’s time to take control of how you watch TV by cutting the cord today!

Cutting the Cord
Overall, the number of U.S. households subscribing to pay TV services declined by 1.5% or 1.5 million in 2011, according to Nielsen. That is particularly interesting because the pay TV industry has never posted a quarterly subscriber decline until 2010. According to a marketing research firm in Texas, about 5% of pay TV subscribers said they have downgraded their cable package and are watching more content online.  Aside from the free local TV broadcasts you can receive over-the-air with an antenna, there are other options available that offer your favorite shows and movies. Media streaming set-top boxes such as Boxee, Roku and Simple.tv allow you to watch TV and movies via subscription based internet applications. Popular applications such as Netflix and Hulu Plus will cost you about $8/month, but there are free options available such as Hulu, Crackle and Popcornflix More →
