    Viacom sets Netflix deal that augurs future strategy

    This strategy and the strength of the Tom Cruise-helmed "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" at the box office helped Viacom beat profit and revenue expectations in the quarter ended Sept. 30. As media giants Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) and AT&T Inc (T.N) mobilise their extensive film and TV libraries to launch rivals to Netflix and Amazon.com's (AMZN.O) Prime, smaller companies such as Viacom and sister company CBS Corp (CBS.N) are redoubling efforts to become original content resources for other distributors. "All of the recent activity around vertical integration only serves the demand for high quality producers," Viacom Chief Executive Bob Bakish said on a post-earnings conference call.
