Black Households Are Saving Money By Streaming Their TV Channels

Published

on

Nationwide — USAstreamsTV, a Black-owned company, is using technology to help break barriers that have limited many African Americans from having affordable access to live network channels. USA Today reports that the average cable subscriber spends about $85 a month for cable and more than $100 a month for satellite TV.

USAstreamsTV’s Marketing Director Joseph Scales says, “Technology is always changing and improving. Today many people are looking for ways to save money and cut the cord. The old days of accessing cable TV and digital media through hardwired devices like satellite dishes and bulky cable boxes are being replaced by more cost efficient online applications and easy plug and play devices like Amazons Firestick. This allows the same content to be streamed directly to your TV, phones, tablets and laptops through IPTV also known as (Internet Protocol TV). The software technology we use today allows anyone around the globe to watch live tv through our streaming app as long as they have an internet/WIFI connection.”

Scales mentions that most TV manufactures and TV networks are adapting to the growing demand for live streaming TV by offering their content through various internet based applications, which provide consumers access to the same content whether at home on the go. Their streaming application brings thousands of live HD quality network channels, movies, live sports, pay per view, and international channels directly to subscribers for as little as $10 per month. It is a tremendous cost savings over traditional cable and satellite monthly subscription fees. In addition to the monthly cost savings, customers do not need to be credit approved to start service and there are no long term contracts required. USAstreamsTV also provides a optional FREE 2 day trial for phone, tablet and television users.

Scales says, “It is our hope and vision to bring affordable network tv viewing to every home and community across the globe, while expanding minority participation in the industry through our growing network of service providers.”

To Protect the Innocent, Black-Owned Tech Startup is Developing an App That Will Monitor Police Misconduct

Birmingham, AL — In 2017, Maria Watkins, an African American entrepreneur, founded the RightThere Corporation (RTC). The organization was incorporated in 2018 with an exemplary board of directors, including a retired police captain as board chairman. The RightThere Corporation is now among the first to offer a formidable, technological solution for civilians who fear the threat of police misconduct and other potentially dangerous situations.

RightThere Corporation is using technology to accomplish their mission of preventing police misconduct and reducing civil rights violations and to make justice work for all. The African American community has been severely impacted by police misconduct. In the United States, according to an analysis of data from The Guardian on police killings, Black Americans in comparison to their white counterparts, are more likely to be killed by police when unarmed.

RightThere Corporation and its dedicated team of professionals have developed an app that will assist in reducing police misconduct. RTC is awaiting full patent approval. The RTC Protech™ app will soon be on Apple and Android devices as well as a wearable device.

The list below highlights certain app function and services:

* Voice/touch activation
* GPS Tracking
* Audio and video surveillance
* Alerts to emergency contacts
* Assist in filing complaints to appropriate agencies
* Access to Legal Referral Network

What can I do?

The purpose of this press release is to compel concerned individuals to ask the question: What can I do? Those willing to be part of the solution and willing to assist RTC in tackling the problem of police misconduct are welcome. The success of RTC and the community will impact not only this generation but also for generations to come. Every community deserves to live in safety and to be treated equally under the law.

Support RTC by visiting their pre-launch website, and learning more about Rightthere Corporation. Register by leaving your name and email. RightThere Corporation will send you updates on their progress and launch date.

Beyonce Reportedly Made $300 Million From Her Uber Investment

Published

on

By

Uber went public last week and their shares have been plummeting ever since. Despite this, singer Beyonce has still managed to score a $300 million profit from her investment. Many are wondering how this is possible since Uber’s shares plunged during the first week, closing as low as 17% below its IPO price!

Well, according to The New York Times, Beyonce received $6 million in restricted stock units (RSUs) from Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick to perform at a private company event in Las Vegas in 2015.

Here’s a little bit of information about restricted stock units (RSU). It’s compensation issued by an employer to an employee in the form of company stock that are assigned a fair market value when they vest. Upon vesting, the stock units are considered income, and a portion of the shares is withheld to pay income taxes. The employee receives the remaining shares and can sell them at his or her discretion.

So, Beyonce, although not a regular employee of Uber, was in fact “an employee” temporarily when she performed at the company’s private event. While the exact value of the shares at the time is not known, it can be assumed that the value was around $20 to $25 per share.

But when Uber’s IPO initially debuted, it started trading at $42 per share. So, if she sold her shares immediately despite the IPO plummeting, she could have easily made $300 million or more from her shares.

Another win for the Beehive!
