Initially, the film seems doomed to be an annoying “Driving Miss Daisy” spin on “The Odd Couple.” But the stars are far too good for that, as are the script and Peter Farrelly’s — yes, of “Dumb and Dumber” among others — direction.
No company wants their proposed deal to become a political football in the 2020 presidential campaign. Plus, it will take some time for capital markets to digest megadeals like AT&T-Time Warner and Disney Fox. A possible recession is another wild card.
The Santa Rosa Integrated Wellness Center and Comcast NBCUniversal hosted a “Winter Wonderland” event to support families and children impacted by the 2017 North Bay wildfires. The new Wellness Center, created by Santa Rosa City Schools (SRCS), is also receiving generous support from Kaiser Permanente, the North Bay Fire Relief Fund and United Way of the Wine Country. “After almost a year of planning, rebuilding and obtaining funding, the Santa Rosa Integrated Wellness Center has now fully opened its doors.
LOS ANGELES—The sale of major assets of 21st Century Fox Inc. will create two juggernauts of programming, Walt Disney Co. and Comcast Corp., that will tower over a rapidly consolidating media and entertainment landscape, according to a report by Ampere Analysis. Disney’s $71 billion deal to acquire Fox’s film and television divisions and Comcast’s agreement to buy the pay-TV operator Sky PLC will create companies that together control nearly 40% of all programming spending in the U.S., the analysis found. The findings underscore how traditional Hollywood studios are responding to the threat posed by Netflix Inc., which has pledged to spend $8 billion on programming and helped drive Disney to buy Fox in the first place.
Verizon (VZ) recently introduced a service called MyNumbers, which allows its wireless customers to work with up to five phone numbers on a single handset, making it easy for people to have separate numbers for personal, business, and other uses without having to carry around multiple phones. Although MyNumbers mostly sees Verizon catching up to the competition because T-Mobile (TMUS) and AT&T (T) have already launched their variants of the service, it could help Verizon boost its customer retention. Under Verizon’s MyNumbers service, each added line is charged at $15 per month, which looks cheaper than buying a separate device for each use even for those customers who upgrade their handsets regularly.
NEW YORK, Dec. 07, 2018 -- In new independent research reports released early this morning, Market Source Research released its latest key findings for all current investors,.
Comcast Corporation :
Movies about race, politics and music dominated nominations for the Golden Globe awards on Thursday, setting the stage for a lively Hollywood awards season leading up to the Oscars in February. Dark comedy "Vice," a scathing look at the rise to power of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, led all comers with six nods. It was followed by the Lady Gaga musical remake of "A Star is Born," British historical comedy "The Favourite" and road trip movie through 1960s segregated America "Green Book" with five nods apiece.
Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) is not the typical technology stock that investors would want to consider first when it comes to streaming content and set-top TV. While those are two distinct markets that Roku specializes in, it faces strong competition from both fronts. Now that ROKU stock has given up almost 50% of the peak gains from 52-week highs, what is the verdict on the shares?
Movies Anywhere, the Disney-led movie service operated in partnership Universal, WB, Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox, is adding its first pay TV partner. Starting today, Comcast Xfinity TV customers will be able to sync their accounts with Movies Anywhere in order to access their movie purchases from the Xfinity Digital Store alongside those from other digital retailers. The movies can be accessed on Xfinity X1, in the Xfinity Stream app and on other Xfinity TV platforms.
Comcast (CMCSA) and Charter Communications (CHTR) have diversified into the wireless market, selling mobile services using Verizon’s (VZ) 4G LTE (long-term evolution) network. The arrangement with Verizon restricts Comcast and Charter to selling mobile services in their footprints.
The announcement was made back in August, allowing Comcast customers who own an Xfinity X1 set-top box to stream content from Amazon Prime Video. Subscribers of Amazon Prime with the set-top box can watch the company’s original content, as well as other movies and TV shows that are available to stream via the service. The app was rolled out starting this week for some devices but not all, so be patient as it will eventually reach your Xfinity X1 box as well.
Although T-Mobile (TMUS) hopes to close its deal to merge with Sprint (S) as early as in the first quarter of 2019, the path isn’t smooth, as the deal continues to face strong resistance. Fearing reduced competition in the wireless market and possible job losses, more than a dozen groups, including labor unions, have recently asked the Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives to hold a hearing on the T-Mobile-Sprint merger deal.
Comcast's quest to be the "aggregator of aggregators" is moving forward, as the company announced Wednesday that customers can now access Amazon Prime Video through the X1 cable box. Philadelphia-based Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) is rolling out the feature on the platform this week after initially announcing plans to do so in August. Prime Video will join Netflix and YouTube as integrated services on X1, allowing subscribers to use the X1 voice remote to find shows and movies in any of their content libraries without toggling between apps, devices or TV inputs.
Comcast and Amazon today announced the Prime Video service will launch over the next week on Comcast’s Xfinity X1, giving millions of people access to a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that now features seamless access to award-winning Prime Video originals, thousands of premium shows, movies, and live events right alongside all of the live, on demand and web programming included with an Xfinity TV subscription.
As promised, Amazon Prime is becoming available this week on Comcast's X1 platform, joining other third-party streaming services like Netflix and YouTube. Beyond just having access to the app, that means content on Amazon is now searchable through the X1 UI, and with voice commands delivered via its remote. Comcast executive VP Matt Strauss told Engadget that X1 handles more than 8 billion voice commands per year, and it's number one platform for Netflix consumption among Comcast customers.
