Wil Wheaton isn’t one to freak out about piracy, but he also knows that his new TV show needs good ratings to survive.
“Watch the Show, Play the Game, Change the World” is how “Defiance” bills itself, but the combination of video game and television could be a game-changer in its own right.
Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome might have ended up like many television pilots — abandoned and never again seen. SyFy opted to instead premiere the series through Machinima Prime on YouTube. It’s a great treat for Battlestar fans – and a potential precedent for future projects.
SyFy shows, I love you so hard. Which is why I was thrilled to see the release of an official Farnsworth app tied to Warehouse 13. The app is actually made by the same special effects wizards that create some of the show’s prop-based magic.

Did online viewers kill Caprica? Not exactly, says SyFy Digital’s GM Craig Engler. However, Hulu and Co. don’t bring in nearly as much money as traditional advertising, which is why Nielsen ratings still matter more than anything else when it comes to a show’s fate.
Syfy.com used to be one of a few cable network sites that let Google TV users catch up on entire episodes of its shows – but no more: The NBC-owned network is now preventing Google TV users from accessing its content, much like NBC.com, ABC.com and CBS.com.
Guild creator Felicia Day’s status as a self-made mainstream star just got a major bump this week. The SyFy original movie Red: Werewolf Hunter premiered last Saturday to an audience of 2.06 million people — a major success according to SyFy programming exec Thomas Vitale.
