    What I would want more than anything from our streaming landscape is a 24 hour Futurama Channel, just to have it on in the background. Since Viacom bought Pluto TV, it might actually be possible.

        That actually sounds like a fun project to do. It might require some... less than legal ways of acquiring the copyrighted material, but it should be doable.

          You could probably do this legally for pretty cheap too right? Get some second hand tablet and something like VLC on an infinite loop. You would have to pay for the content obviously, but there, like you said if you wanted you could pirate the material. Its pretty on android too, since utorrent is available on the app store. To be fair though, the content is not too expensive, you could buy the cds and burn them. I think burning is legal as long as you are not distributing them.

            Yeah as long as there's a way to get the digital files without DRM mucking everything up. It can be surprisingly hard to do legally though, and IMO not worth the effort when I can have it in a few hours by searching on a torrent tracker.

    I think Alien News Desk would be better if it was a Futurama spinoff using their newscasters.
