    TV Streaming Apps Can Learn From The Love of Free Shipping

    Disney is creating a cut-rate version of Netflix exclusively for fans of its Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars franchises. Pluto is getting acquired by Viacom Inc., the parent of MTV. Viacom aside, many in the industry have dismissed these as bit players that won’t catch on broadly, the idea being that most consumers would rather pay for a “premium” product than settle for a free, mediocre service that contains commercials.

    Amazon should buy Netflix — and 9 other mergers we’d love to see

    As rising interest rates increase the cost of borrowing and market volatility creates fears of a sustained “risk-off” environment in investing, you may think investors have meager expectations for any big deals in 2019. Furthermore, mega-deals, including the $54 billion purchase of Express Scripts by Cigna Corp. (CI) and the pending $26 billion merger between Sprint Corp. (S) and T-Mobile US (TMUS) show that corporate America isn’t scared of making deals after a decade of rising stock prices. It didn’t take long after CBS Corp. (CBS) and Viacom Inc. (VIAB) parted ways in 2006 for some investors to second-guess the move.

    [$$] Film-maker Jenn Nkiru’s brain-bending vision

    “I call it cosmic archaeology,” says Jenn Nkiru. In an editing studio in central London the filmmaker — dressed in head-to-toe galaxy purple — is taking a break from a marathon editing session to talk about how she makes her brain-bending shorts. In her films Nkiru, 32, creates densely stratified tableaux: archival footage and historical references to black culture are sardined with original scenes shot by Nkiru and her enormous team.
