This week, a streaming device got an update, we learned more about the company planning to monetize Next Gen TV, and we took a look at just how many customers cable has lost in the last few months.
Here are some of the top streaming news stories from the week.

Evoca is capitalizing on Next Gen TV by offering a pay TV service that will cost about $50/month for around 60 channels. That’s if you take them up on their early access discount.

Turns out, there will be more options for purchasing “Mulan” than just directly through Disney+. The film will also be available through Apple, Google, and Roku.

Nvidia Shield announced a software update this week that includes upgrades to the AI upscaling feature and customization options for the remote control.
