Some of you may have noticed that KJDN 39 has come and gone a few times in the past few days. On a whim, I did a re-scan (I used "scan add") and found KJDN on RF channel 15, but still mapped to virtual channel 39. Somewhat surprised, I contacted KJDN, and asked for a statement. They replied that they are going to relocate to the new frequency soon.
The following is the statement I received from KJDN for publication:

|You Can Do VUDU On Roku.|
As first announced on the Roku Blog on September 20, 2012, WalMart's VUDU subscription-free video streaming service is now available on Roku.
VUDU brings thousands of new releases, Hollywood classics, independent films and TV shows to the Roku platform in vibrant HD. The VUDU channel is free to Roku users, and you’ll even score a free $5.99 video credit when you link your player
With the VUDU channel on Roku, you can:
- Browse and filter titles by name, genre, release date, most watched, top picks, video quality, MPAA rating, studio, purchase option or Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer rating.
- Search for either titles or people
- Check out video extras, cast and crew filmographies, critics’ reviews and a list of similar titles for movies
- View free trailers for many movies
- Preview the first two minutes of a title and test your Internet connection speed to make sure you rent/buy the best resolution video for your network
- Add a movie, TV show or TV episode to your VUDU Wishlist for later viewing
- Enjoy HD titles in Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound (pass-through only)
I'll be updating with a review next week.

Amazon today announced a revamping of their readers and tablets. They are now available for pre-order.I am looking forward to more details on the tablets - I've had a chance to use the original Kindle Fire. Overall, it is a nice little tablet but it lacked some key features, most notably an HDMI port and a USB port that's good for more than just charging and transferring files. A microphone and camera would be nice, too - the original Kindle Fire has neither.
From Amazon, on Sept 6, 2012:

|Cash Free TV|
Does this mark a new direction for "Cache Free TV"? Well, yes. And no. Eventually, Cache Free TV and Cash Free TV will split off into two distinct blogs. Cache Free TV will continue to provide news and information about Cache Valley, Utah, while Cash Free TV will be a more generalized Free TV resource for the USA and perhaps the world. The two blogs will share most of the general content. But for now, the two will web addresses will point to the same place, and be the same blog.
So, why the changes, and why the ".tk" domain instead of ".com"?
