Sprint divorces its Framily, offers new shared-data plans

Learn how Sprint's new Family Share Pack compares with other carrier plans and why its promotional prices may confuse new customers. Meanwhile, Roku keeps things simple with Roku TVs, and the Flappy Bird sequel prepares for landing.

We don't have to hear the word "Framily" anymore. Sprint remodeled its family plan into a shared-data plan, taking away the unlimited option. To better compete, Sprint offers twice as much data for the prices charged by other networks, but some of the limited-time deals can be messy to decipher.

Watch the CNET Update episode below for a quick breakdown of Sprint's Family Share Pack. But not all news today is as complicated: Roku TVs make smart TV simple, HTC One M8 now comes in a Windows flavor, and the Flappy Bird sequel, Swing Copters, lands Thursday.
