CBS and Viacom: It's Not Enough to Compete With Disney or Netflix

NFLX DIS +1 more NFLX DIS VIAB

Viacom shareholders will receive 0.59625 CBS shares for each share they own, according to Bloomberg. The merger gives the combined company a stronger content lineup to offer a digital service that competes with Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Walt Disney's (NYSE: DIS) upcoming streaming bundle. That streaming offering has been a sort of also-ran in the market because -- while it offers originals like Star Trek: Discovery, The GoodFight, and a rebooted Twilight Zone -- it lacks the quantity of content needed to compete with Netflix, HBO, Hulu, or the soon-to-launch Disney+. With Disney bundling Hulu, ESPN+, and Disney+ for $12.99 a month, CBS All Access -- even at $5.99 a month for ad-supported content ($9.99 ad-free) -- does not look like a very good deal. What's next for ViacomCBS?

Disney World's New $299 Trick Is Brilliant but Risky

DIS

Just when you thought that Disney(NYSE: DIS) was running out of ways to milk more money out of its biggest theme-park fans, it raises the bar with a new big-ticket offering. Adult tickets will set you back between $79 and $135 per night for the event, so the pass is a good deal for folks planning to attend at least three or four of the non-Halloween nights. Despite the inviting reputation that Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has for its generous trick-or-treat stations, it's not as if anyone outside of the family dentistry industry is salivating over the prospects of diehard fans walking away with 35 heavy bags of candy through the next 2 1/2 months. Unlike the nine-week Never Ending Pasta Pass at Olive Garden that also went on sale on Friday -- and promptly sold out all 24,000 passes -- Disney is offering a buffet that consumers may not be ready to digest.

It's Never Too Early for Halloween at Disney World

CMCSA DIS

It's Never Too Early for Halloween at Disney World. It's also scorching hot in Florida this time of year, unless guests are being cooled off by a drenching tropical thunderstorm. However, Disney and rival Comcast(NASDAQ: CMCSA) have come to realize that Halloween is big business for theme park operators, and with peak summer travel season now fading in the rearview mirror, it's never too early to start cashing in on the late-October holiday. Some tricks get you treats. It closes the Magic Kingdom early for day guests, only to charge a new wave of costumed turnstile clickers between $79 and $135 to experience the generous candy stations, unique meet-and-greet experiences, and seasonally spiked rides and performances that start at 7 p.m. tonight. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Halloween Horror Nights don't happen every night, but the summertime launches frees up Disney and Comcast to squeeze more of the premium-priced nightly events into their operating calendars.
