FX CEO John Landgraf Takes Aim at Netflix’s ‘Not Remotely Accurate’ Ratings Data – Adweek

NFLX

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf has never been shy about publicly taking shots at Netflix, but he took things to a new level today at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif. Landgraf lambasted the streaming service for the selective—and he says, misleading—ratings data that Netflix shared last month. (For Netflix, a “view” is when at least 70 percent of one episode is completed by one of its global subscribers; also note that these were estimates, as neither show had been on Netflix for four weeks at that point.). But those ratings, Landgraf said, are “not remotely accurate” when compared to Nielsen’s average audience per minute metric used by the rest of the TV industry. According to Nielsen’s SVOD content ratings, which measure U.S. viewership of Netflix content via connected TVs (which represents 70-80 percent of overall viewing), You averaged 8 million U.S. viewers, while Sex Education averaged 3.1 million viewers during its first two weeks. The CEO said that Netflix and the other streaming services’ selective approach to sharing ratings metrics might work for now, but as Nielsen and other measurement companies continue to expand their abilities to measure this content, “one way or another, the truth will ultimately come out, as it always does.”.

Apple could try to buy Netflix, Activision Blizzard or Sonos, JPMorgan suggests - Los Angeles Times

AAPL NFLX +2 more AAPL NFLX JPM ATVI

Apple could try to buy Netflix, Activision Blizzard or Sonos, JPMorgan suggests. Apple Inc. investors likely want the tech giant to use its massive cash pile to make acquisitions, and Netflix Inc., Activision Blizzard Inc. and Sonos Inc. are among the companies that JPMorgan sees as a strong strategic fit. Given this environment, and given that Apple has about $130 billion in net cash — along with an average of $45 billion in cash flow generated every year after dividends — investors are likely hoping that Apple “uses its balance sheet strength to insulate the business against often-seen disruptions in the technology landscape,” JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee wrote. Los Gatos, Calif.-based Netflix was deemed “the best strategic fit” for Apple in the content category, “although we appreciate a combination is less likely as Netflix is unlikely to be a seller for a modest premium.” The video-streaming giant has a market capitalization of about $150 billion.

Fox Hits Back At Netflix In Exec Poaching Battle; Wants $1 If Suit Ends Before Trial – Deadline

NFLX

There is a good chance the nearly three-year-old legal war between Fox and Netflix over executive poaching by the streaming service will still go to trial in May. However, if new motions see the case tossed beforehand and there is no trial, the studio still owned by Rupert Murdoch says it will seeking damages of “only $1 for this cause of action with this motion.”. The “motion” is a somewhat redacted summary judgment filing that 20th Century Fox Film Corporation and Fox 21 dropped in the court docket late Friday to hit back at the similar motion Netflix fired off earlier that day. “‘Disrupting’ Fox’s contracts by inducing their breach is unlawful in this state, as Netflix well knows,” the often colorfully worded 27-page motion from Fox outside lawyers Daniel Petrocelli, Molly Lens and David Marroso of O’Melveny & Myers LLP says near the top (read it here). “Having no real defense, Netflix seeks to avoid liability by boldly asserting that Fox’s employment contracts -all of them- are unconscionable and against public policy, thereby permitting Netflix to freely disrupt them – all of them,” the Los Angeles Superior Court filing adds, claiming with much highlighting of the obvious that “Netflix maintained an actual poaching blueprint—an Excel spreadsheet updated over time that identifies key executives at other companies and the durations of their unexpired contracts.”.

JPMorgan argues Apple should buy Netflix for $200 billion if it wants video service to succeed - 9to5Mac

AAPL NFLX

JPMorgan argues Apple should buy Netflix for $200 billion if it wants video service to succeed. Despite Apple following the path of what made Netflix so globally popular — creating exclusive original content — analysts from JP Morgan are still advocating for an acquisition to be made. According to the bank, Apple should use its nearly $250 billion in cash to either purchase Netflix, Sonos or Activision Blizzard outright. As for a full takeover of Netflix, the bank estimates it would take at least $189 billion to be completed. Video streaming, including original video content, is a highly competitive market with established traditional media houses as well new entrants fighting aggressively for incremental subscribers, which is likely to make it difficult to scale any new platform to compete effectively.

Why JPMorgan thinks Apple might buy Netflix - TechCentral

Apple investors are likely looking for the company to use its massive cash pile to make acquisitions, and names like Netflix, Activision Blizzard and Sonos are among the companies that JPMorgan sees as strong strategic fits. Given this environment, and given that Apple has roughly US$130-billion in net cash — along with an average of $45-billion in cash flow generated every year after dividends — investors are likely hoping that Apple “uses its balance sheet strength to insulate the business against often-seen disruptions in the technology landscape”, analyst Samik Chatterjee wrote. Netflix was deemed “the best strategic fit” for Apple in the content category, “although we appreciate a combination is less likely as Netflix is unlikely to be a seller for a modest premium”. Apple is “currently lagging competitors in the smart home category”, JPMorgan wrote, referring to the company’s HomePod product line. Sonos, in contrast, has a “differentiated position as a premium home speaker system relative to Amazon Alexa and Google Home”, along with “strong loyalty among current customers and a robust international presence.”. Sonos had a market cap of $1.2-billion, as of Friday’s close.

JPMorgan Says Apple Should Go After Netflix, Sonos Or Activision

AAPL NFLX

JPMorgan Says Apple Should Go After Netflix, Sonos Or Activision. BenzingaFebruary 4, 2019, 4:58 PM GMT. What should Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) do with its cash hoard of nearly $250 billion? Despite overseeing a deal that would in theory use most of Apple's cash, there is "value to acquiring the most successful player in this space," the analyst said. Even if Apple is looking to make a significant push in the streaming video space, it will be the "smaller player" in the market, making it difficult to replicate Netflix's success, he said. Netflix stock was up 2.72 percent at the time of publication Monday in the wake of JPMorgan's hypothetical note on how Apple should proceed with its cash. Sonos was the clear outperformer among the three and was up more than 7 percent, while Activision was up 1.34 percent.
