Frame Rate is the show that wants you to be able to watch what you want, when you want, where you want, and how you want it. Tom Merritt and Brian Brushwood scour everything from Hollywood to hackers to help you get closer to cutting the cord.

Originally running as a series of tests going as far back as June 8, 2010, the show eventually went from alpha to beta to golden master with the premiere episode airing on November 9, 2010. The show aired on Mondays at 3:30pm PT/6:30pm ET with the on demand download available within a few hours.

With Tom's departure from TWiT, the final episode aired on December 16, 2013. The final frame of the final episode was a screenshot of Tom, Dr. Kiki, and Brian from the first alpha test episode.
