TNT and TBS both launch universal apps for Windows Phone letting users watch TV anywhere

TBS, owned by Turner Broadcasting, has had an app on Windows 8.1 for quite some time now. It only seems apropos that they adapt that app for Windows Phone, letting users watch clips and – after authenticating – whole episodes on the go. For added bonus, Turner could also toss in TNT Drama into the mix as well.

This morning, users can download Watch TNT and TBS for Windows right to their phones. Watch TNT is focused mostly on drama shows, including The Last Ship, Major Crimes, Falling Skies and lets users watch episodes on their phone and continue it on their Windows 8.1 device. For TBS for Windows, you get Conan, Big Bang Theory, and a host of other comedies and lighter fare with the same episode streaming and history abilities.

Microsoft has been busy testing and updating Windows 10 and we have been just as busy trying to keep track of all the new features that have been added. For that reason, we have decided to compile a list things that make Windows 10 stand apart, one build version at a time.

Windows 10 is not due until mid-2015 but with regular updates and a free installation, the Technical Preview lets you try it out today. How far will the OS evolve over the next nine months? We have no idea, but we are going to start keeping track. Here is what is new so far.

A few weeks ago, the Cortana team introduced a new concert-tracking feature listed under Interests. By enabling Concert Watch, Cortana can show you when your favorite artists are playing in your area and how to get tickets. It is an ingenious addition to the personal assistant as keeping track of your favorite artists is getting more and more difficult with our increasingly complex lives.

As cool as the concert-tracking feature is, we had a few questions about how it all worked. Luckily, we were able to ask Limor Lahiani, Principal Development Lead and Hadas Bitran, Principal Program Management Lead at Microsoft about how Cortana does what she does.
