Ted 2: Marky Mark And The Funky Bear Are Back

Video: Ted became the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time when came out in 2012.

Streaming Movies And TV On Stan, Easier Than Netflix

A streaming video on demand service can have a massive library of movies and TV online, but just as important is actually guiding you to easily find and watch that video. For my $10 per month, the experience of actually using the just-launched Stan is every bit as good as, and in some cases even better than, Netflix.
