Netflix Testing as Linear Scheduled TV Channel Programming

 

It looks like Netflix is experimenting with something that they have never tried before. The streaming giant has decided to launch a trial that would make viewers go back to scheduled programming.

According to IGN, Netflix is testing a new linear content channel in France. The new channel, which is called Netflix Direct, will provide viewers with real-time, scheduled programming.

But how does it work? Netflix Direct is set to “pull content from the streaming giant’s existing library and present it in a linear, scheduled format for subscribers who like the idea of accessing a pre-programmed feed that ‘doesn’t require them to choose what they are going to watch,’ similar to standard broadcast and cable TV channels.”

Tesla is looking to switch to AMD ‘Big Navi’ GPU for onboard computer, leak shows

Tesla is apparently looking to switch to AMD “Big Navi” GPU for its onboard media computer (MCU), according to a new leak.

Originally, Tesla used Nvidia Tegra chips in its Media Control Unit (MCU), which is different from its Autopilot or Full Self-Driving (FSD) computers that use Tesla’s own chip.

As Tesla started working to transition away from using Nvidia’s chips for its Autopilot computer, the automaker also switched from Nvidia to Intel for its onboard MCU media computer.

Now, we’ve learned that Tesla is again looking to make a change in its MCU, and it is looking to move to AMD.

Patrick Schur shared a document showing that Tesla was looking to move to AMD’s new Navi 23 chip before removing the document as it could potentially reveal the source:

  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Democrats lost seats in the Senate and House because of a lack of online advertising, including on Facebook.
  • “If you’re not spending $200,000 on Facebook with fund-raising, persuasion, volunteer recruitment, get-out-the-vote the week before the election, you are not firing on all cylinders,” she told the New York Times. “And not a single one of these campaigns were firing on all cylinders.”
  • The comments come as Ocasio-Cortez and other progressives field blame from centrist Democrats who say their causes and messaging caused the party to lose seats in the House and Senate.
