Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The plug in stick would be useful, but would it work, as they have said, on any TV?

VM talks of a partnership here but I don't know how much content it spans.

Magic City forms part of a successful partnership and an exclusive licensing deal between Virgin Media and Starz Digital, the global digital and on demand licensing arm of US cable network, Starz.

It looks like The Rook is also part of a partnership between Lionsgate and Liberty Global
Quote:
The series marks Liberty Global’s move into original drama in partnership with Lionsgate. The supernatural spy thriller will be executive produced by Meyer and Stephen Garrett (“The Night Manager”)...
Liberty Global will carry the show in the countries where it has cable platforms. Lionsgate will distribute the show in the rest of the world. Liberty Global is the largest international cable group, with services including Virgin Media in the U.K., Unitymedia in Germany, and UPC in the Netherlands. These will carry “The Rook” as an on-demand offering.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

....just as a direct follow on from that, AMC has teamed up with John Malone's Charter cableco to allow them first digs at new AMC shows:

https://www.thetripleplay.net/blog/c...-amc-networks/

And I was going to post all this in my John Malone thread, as its all related to the current wave of media mergers, but here's a few other titbits of news:

Discovery, Viacom and AMC join up to launch Philo, their own streaming service:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/...mor/856269001/

Discovery teams up with the Germans to launch streaming service and the exec from the German company becomes Discovery's no 2 man (join the dots...):

Interesting. Nice to see more concentration on content - I assume that VM viewers will benefit. We shall soon see as 2018 was the date the new shows were going to start coming through. Maybe we are not so dependent on BT for AMC shows in the future after all!

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

In a last minute move Netflix have added the new Cloverfield movie to their service today.

It was planned to hit cinemas in March or April I think.

I think its more than just concentration of content, but concentration of companies.

Yes their rather colourful reply to a tweet announcing this last night was a little expletive for a highly big brand.

Caution: Strong language.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Very strong wording but then I guess they just used the words of the previous tweet. Trying to be funny.

Filmstruck UK has launched in association with Curzon. I wonder if we might get an app alongside the Curzon app

Oh that would be great! All the films shown in Curzon could appear on Filmstruck first.

They have their own individual film libraries as I understand it and can co-exist together.
