Imitation Game

Un film de vazut! Cu link catre pagina Wikipedia despre Alan Turing, de citit inainte de a merge la film.

Netflix are 30 milioane de clienti VPN

Conform unor estimari Netflix are in acest moment intre 20 si 30 milioane de useri care acceseaza serviciul prin VPN:

Netflix is now estimated to have 30 million VPN users worldwide, according to the latest statistics from research firm GlobalWebIndex. At least 20 million of these users are estimate to be in China alone.

Ultimul raport oficial, cel pentru Q3 2014, indica un numar de 50.65 milioane de abonati non SUA, daca cifra pentru numarul celor care se conecteaza prin VPN se confirma inseamna ca mai bine de jumatate din abonatii internationali incalca ToS-ul pentru ca licentele cumparate de Netflix sunt doar pentru tarile unde opereaza. Asta apropo de comentariul meu de aici cum ca industria cinematografelor e o industrie inchisa si obtuza, Netflix nu poate cumpara licenta pentru un film worldwide, trebuie sa discute licentierea country by country.

HBO se rupe de „cablisti”

Stirea zilei de ieri vine de la HBO, de anul viitor HBO Go va fi un serviciu independent la care va putea avea acces oricine, probabil pentru inceput doar in SUA, indiferent daca are sau nu abonament HBO printr-un „cablist”. Lansat initial ca un serviciu complementar postului tv, HBO Go se rupe de cablu si se duce dupa Netflix sau Amazon. Poate putin cam tarziu, dupa parerea mea.

Tot ieri Netflix a anuntat rezultate sub asteptari pe ultimul trimestru, doar 980,000 abonati noi in SUA (vs 1.33 mil cat erau estimarile) si 2.04 mil abonati noi internationali (vs 2.36 mil).

Asaincepe

On that date, Netflix will premiere a feature film — the sequel to the 2000 hit „Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” — at the same time moviegoers can see it in theaters.

The dual release will be the realization of Netflix’s long-held goal to let subscribers see films at the same time they’re in movie theaters.

„Ad agencies and commercials are history”

In these days of Netflix and on-demand television a new TV standard is emerging. Ad agencies are dying faster than ever and converting themselves into something else, because they know that we won’t need them within the next 10 years. Why? Because humans don’t want commercials. They want to get inspired by new products and services, yes. But they want to be in control of where they are getting that inspiration. Not as a way to be allowed to watch TV shows and movies. But all this is old news.

Doua despre AntenaPlay.ro

AntenaPlay.ro este online de astazi, din ce am vazut ofera streaming pentru cele 5 canele Intact/Antena Group (Antena 1, Antena 2, Antena 3, Euforia, Gsptv) + 4 canale (5 cu Zu) exclusiv online, Monden, Stars, TvNovela si News, canale ce par a fi un mixt pe verticala facut din productiile celor 5 canale clasice. Gusti are mai multe detalii la el pe blog, eu remarc doua lucruri:

1. Spre deosebire de Voyo nu au deloc continut (filme, seriale) licentiat pentru online

2. Continutul din AntenaPlay exista in continuare pe YouTube in canale dedicate, am gasit doua in 30 de secunde de cautare, In gura presei/Mircea Badea si un canal care grupeaza mai multe show-uri de la ei, Editii Speciale ceea ce ridica un semn de intrebare legat de motivul pentru care as plati un abonament pentru ceva ce este oferit free pe YouTube (de fapt asa pornisem acest post, plin de entuziasm :), salutand aparitia unui nou canal video care mai „scoate” din contentul autohton prezent pe YouTube. Nu e cazul).

Pareri?

Aha, deci se poate

Two Hollywood studios have quietly begun testing a controversial business model in South Korea after years of failed efforts in the U.S.: renting movies via video on demand while they are still playing in theaters.

The experiments, by Walt Disney Co. Sony Pictures Entertainment, mark the first time major American studios have offered viewers anywhere the option of buying a ticket to see a movie or to rent it at home from a cable, Internet or satellite-television provider. Sony Pictures is owned by Japan’s Sony Corp.

Sony’s „Django Unchained” was available to rent online or via cable just three weeks after premiering in Korean theaters in April. Disney’s animated „Wreck-it Ralph” and „Brave” came five and four weeks, respectively, after launching at cinemas in December and September. In both cases the films were still playing broadly in theaters throughout South Korea, the world’s eighth-largest film market.
