Facebook is preparing to challenge Roku in the video streaming device market as the social media giant looks to a future beyond advertising.
(Bloomberg) -- Facebook Inc. on Wednesday upgraded its Portal video chat devices, with a new model for TVs and lower prices. It also said users can opt out of the company accessing voice recordings collected by the hardware.With the new products, called Portal TV, Portal, and Portal Mini, Facebook is trying to break into the crowded smart speaker and connected living room markets.The Portal TV, which goes on sale for $149 in October, can be connected to a TV set with standard HDMI cable and has a camera and several microphones to enable video calling via Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp services.The device supports Spotify, along with Amazon’s Prime Video service, Ring cameras and Alexa voice assistant. But it lacks content from Netflix Inc. and some other popular video-streaming services. That may make it difficult to compete without the range of video and apps offered by rival streaming devices from Roku Inc., Apple Inc. and Amazon.com Inc.Facebook executive Andrew Bosworth emphasized in a demonstration that the device’s primary purpose is video calling. That’s the company’s unique sales proposition and people will likely use additional devices for content that they can’t get via the Portal TV, he said.Facebook’s new Portal smart display devices, coming later in October, will sell for $129 and $179, down from the previous $199 starting price. The devices still come in two sizes, 8-inch and 10-inch variations. The new versions have improved speakers and a physical shutter that can either disable both the camera and microphone or just the camera.Facebook said it will transcribe some audio clips collected by the Portal devices, but users will be able to opt out.Facebook first launched its video-calling hardware in 2018, following a series of privacy scandals. The company doesn’t report Portal sales, but it slashed the price in half earlier this year. Bosworth said sales and consumer reception of the device were “warmer” than expected, but he declined to provide specific figures.To contact the reporters on this story: Mark Gurman in Los Angeles at email@example.com;Kurt Wagner in San Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at email@example.com, Alistair Barr, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

The smart TVs in our homes are leaking sensitive user data to companies including Netflix, Google and Facebook even when some devices are idle, according to two large-scale analyses. Researchers from Northeastern University and Imperial College London found that a number of smart TVs, including those made by Samsung and LG, and the streaming dongles Roku and Amazon’s FireTV were sending out data such as location and IP address to Netflix and third-party advertisers. The data were being sent whether or not the user had a Netflix account.
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 17, 2019 / The securities litigation law firm of The Gross Law Firm issues the following notice on behalf of shareholders in the following publicly traded companies. Shareholders who purchased shares in the following companies during the dates listed are encouraged to contact the firm regarding possible Lead Plaintiff appointment.
2019 is shaping up to be quite the year in the battle for America's streaming market. Almost every week there's some big piece of news. Different competitors are launching new services, price points, content, hardware, and the like quite regularly.Source: Shutterstock Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is the latest entrant, as it has just revealed plenty of details about its Apple TV+ service which will launch later this fall. What will it mean for Disney (NYSE:DIS) stock?Apple isn't the only streaming company making news. Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) just announced its latest big move, grabbing the streaming rights for "Seinfeld," starting in 2021 from Sony (NYSE:SNE).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIn a highly competitive market, what is Disney doing to stay ahead of the field? Disney Ties Up With Microsoft, Breaks Up With AppleLast week, as Apple was rolling out its TV offering, one of its board members stepped down from their role. Bob Iger, Disney's CEO, was the departing member. With Apple and Disney now in direct competition, it no longer made any sense for Iger to help oversee Apple's affairs. * 7 Momentum Stocks to Buy On the Dip As Disney distances itself from Apple, it's moving in another direction. Variety reported that Disney and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) have reached an agreement to work together on a cloud solution using Azure to help Disney produce movies more easily.Disney specifically picked Microsoft because it was focused on the media space. However, unlike rivals, it hasn't been accused of looking at people's data to try to refine their own content. By contrast, who knows what data Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) might harvest for use in its original content if Disney had picked Amazon Web Services. Apple's Streaming Threat to DISIt appears that the streaming wars will end up having a major impact on tech hardware producers as well. Apple's latest moves around Apple TV+ suggest as much.Apple will be giving out a free one-year trial to its Apple+ TV service. Analysts expect this to have a negative impact on Apple's earnings. Goldman Sach's analyst, Rob Hall, for example, slashed his price target from $187 to $165 on AAPL stock. Hall suggested that this trial will work, in effect, as a $60 reduction in the sales price for new Apple hardware, significantly lowering the company's average selling price for new products.Apple, for what it's worth, disputed Hall's assessment of the situation and said there would be no significant impact to the company's financials as a result of its Apple TV+ promotion. One certain impact for Apple, however, is that it is losing any friendly ties with Disney. Disney Can Partner With a Variety of Hardware MakersRegardless, Apple's move raises an interesting point for Disney stock. Amazon has long been lumping services together within Prime to try to drive more customer stickiness. Now it seems that Apple and Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG), among others, may rely more heavily on cross-subsidizing its various products and services.This gives Disney a real opportunity as it has a ton to offer hardware producers. It can deliver video, audio (it has Disney Radio and Records among other things), games, and tons of other IP. Yet Disney itself is more hardware-agnostic. This allows it to partner with various TV, phone, and other electronics markers to offer packages emphasizing native Disney content.While Microsoft is not strong in hardware outsize of video games at the moment, Disney's partnership with them shows potential. Disney can work with companies like Microsoft, Samsung, Huawei, and other giants that don't have competing content services.Meanwhile companies like Apple and Amazon that try to control both hardware and content will find themselves increasingly isolated from the rest of the world. Especially given the increasing anti-trust concerns, it seems unlikely that conditions will allow one ecosystem to dominate everything as much as, say, the iPhone did in the past. This gives Disney's streaming a leg up on the offerings from the big tech companies. Disney's Top Rival Is Still NetflixEven with all the excitement out of Apple and Amazon, among others, Disney stock owners shouldn't sleep on the company's biggest rival in streaming: Netflix. We have seen a lot of people saying that Netflix has peaked and that rivals will overtake it soon. I say critics have exaggerated the death of NFLX stock. Netflix is still spending an ever-increasing amount of money on licensing and original shows and movies -- its all-in content budget is up to $15 billion this year. On top of that, Netflix is spending almost $3 billion annually on marketing.With that sort of growth engine in place, it's fanciful to write Netflix off as a serious competitor yet. For people that were doubting Netflix's staying power, particularly with 30-and-40 something viewers after it elected to let "Friends" leave the platform, the arrival of "Seinfeld" should put these concerns to rest. Netflix still has the budget and appetite to go get blockbuster franchises.DIS stock owners need not worry too much. If there's any content player with a library that matches up favorably to Netflix, it's Disney. However, Netflix's huge overseas presence including a ton of locally-relevant content for individual foreign markets will keep Netflix as a top rival to Disney going forward.Like Disney, Netflix doesn't have internal conflicts of interest between hardware and streaming services. That said, Disney could be a better partner for other neutral tech firms than Netflix. It has a much wider array of intellectual property and tangible assets beyond just film and video. Disney Stock VerdictI have long been skeptical of how the streaming battle will play out. It seems like everyone is destined to lose money, at least in the short-run. Pricing on many of these services is very low, and operators are paying exorbitant amounts of money to bring in fresh content. Disney's entries into this space -- like Netflix -- won't be a cash cow from day one.But the eventual winner in this space will be a company willing to play the long game. Disney's combination of a huge range of assets, a strong balance sheet, and its independence from other tech firms give it a strong hand to play. In addition, its aggressive pricing shows it is willing to match Netflix with solid marketing and customer engagement efforts of its own.I don't expect streaming to power overnight success for DIS stock, but I'm warming up to the company's long-term strategy for the streaming wars.At the time of this writing, Ian Bezek held no positions in any of the aforementioned securities.

You may cherish your Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) device to meet your entertainment needs. But unless you want to get played by shares on the price chart, now is not the time to purchase ROKU stock. Let me explain.Source: AhmadDanialZulhilmi / Shutterstock.com I love my Roku streaming stick. I cut the cable cord with my first Roku device more than six years ago and have never looked back. Now, and with more and more people making the same switch, the future continues to look very good for ROKU.Roku's hardware is the overwhelming platform of choice when watching streaming content from Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Disney's (NYSE:DIS) Hulu and the soon-to-launch Disney+, Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime and AT&T's (NYSE:T) HBO Now. And that's great news.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsStill, that doesn't mean there are threats that Roku stock can completely ignore.Front and center, there's always the possibility of competition for the Roku stock price. Others like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have and will continue to try and muscle in on Roku's action. Speaking of which, the tech giant is fighting back once again with the introduction of Apple TV+ and a slew of less-expensive, high-quality original programming for consumers. * 7 Momentum Stocks to Buy On the Dip There's also the market itself to be cautious of when it comes to investing in ROKU.A bit more than a month into a confirmed rally, the S&P 500 has clawed its way back up to an all-time-high this past week as the market moves into the second half of a seasonally difficult September and ever closer to the notorious calendar month of October. And that could have seriously implications for a growth name like Roku stock and its price chart, which is already looking technically suspect for today's buyers. Roku Stock's Weekly ChartIf ever there was a mover and shaker on the price chart, ROKU would undoubtedly be in the running for top honors. That said, volatility is a two-way street. And while just a short time ago shares of Roku could have been played profitably for upside momentum, today is a very different story and the odds are stacked against bullish investors.As the weekly chart shows, Roku shares have established a confirmed bearish engulfing candlestick. Coupled with an incredible market-leading rally off its August bottom, a stratospheric 2019 for shareholders, an overbought and bearish stochastics crossover and technical support well below today's ROKU stock price, bullish investors need to wait before buying.Given the potentially treacherous near-term environment for ROKU, my suggestion is to watch for a leg down into or between the first couple support zones from roughly $127-$130 and $116-$119 for bottoming. A challenge of those key price areas on the Roku stock chart offers investors an opportunity to buy into a great name after a minimum, but much-needed correction of at least 25%.I'd also recommend that instead of simply trying to catch a falling knife into a support zone, investors should wait for the weekly stochastics to support the potential for a bottom. Lastly, locating a reversal pattern -- not unlike those formed in December, April and early August -- makes a good deal of sense before buying Roku stock.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in securities mentioned in this article.

When Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) released the iPhone 11 -- and a handful of other new iPhone models -- last week, some analysts were disappointed by the absence of a 5G iPhone. Others were more excited by news that Apple TV+ will launch Nov. 1 at $4.99 per month, setting it up as a competitively priced rival to Disney's (NYSE:DIS) Disney+ and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). In this episode of Matt McCall's "Moneyline" podcast, he shares his takeaways from the launch event and his bigger picture insight on Apple stock and 5G investing.McCall isn't worried about the lack of a 5G iPhone. Heck, he knows 5G is right around the corner, and Apple's devices will be leading the way. For example, as a long-time Apple Watch wearer, McCall is confident that future iterations of the smart watch will be big players in 5G connectivity. He predicts that Apple users with chronic illnesses like hypertension and diabetes will be able to get accurate, real-time updates on their health stats thanks to 5G smart watches.Want further proof of Apple's upside potential? AAPL stock is just 6% off all-time intraday highs in the days following its hardware event. Apple's promising future in 5G investing is just one of many reasons why AAPL is among McCall's favorite stocks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips McCall's PodcastLooking for more ways to play 5G investing? In this episode Matt McCall interviews Defiance ETFs President Paul Dellaquila, who helped launch the first ever 5G exchange-traded fund product. According to Dellaquila, the Defiance 5G Next Gen Connectivity ETF (NYSEARCA:FIVG) was designed to take a longer-term view of 5G. The ETF's components are all companies he believes will benefit in huge ways over the next few years. * 7 Momentum Stocks to Buy On the Dip Interested in the FIVG ETF? Its top holdings include Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS), Analog Devices (NASDAQ:ADI), Marvell Technology (NASDAQ:MRVL) and Nokia (NYSE:NOK). Think about how Netflix and some of the big names in the semiconductor business jumped in the years following the advent of 4G. To McCall and Dellaquila, investors must think outside the box in terms of the internet of things and broader 5G trend if they want to see big returns down the line.Beyond 5G iPhones, McCall expects to see the $53 trillion trend play out in autonomous vehicles -- picture a connected web of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) cars. Just like with the Apple Watch, 5G will bring connected healthcare. It will also simply mean faster video streaming on mobile devices.
