Netflix is betting billions on its original shows and movies — but this analyst warns it’s a far riskier gamble than investors realize (NFLX) – Silicon Alley

The bull case for Netflix has a big flaw, argues Wedbush analyst Michael...

The bull case for Netflix has a big flaw, argues Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter, a longtime skeptic of the company.
Optimists think the company's big investment in original content, which is sinking the company ever deeper in debt, will eventually pay off in lower costs, Pachter noted.
But that argument ignores the fact that Netflix licenses the vast majority of its content, including nearly all of its most popular "originals" — and licensing fees just keep going up.
One of the central pillars of the bull case for Netflix may be resting on shaky grounds.
Investors and analysts backing the stock have based their optimism, in part, on the company's growing investment in its "originals" — the shows and movies that are exclusive to Netflix. Although that investment is already costing the company billions of dollars, it should pay off in the long run, because the "originals" will help insulate it from rising costs of licensing other companies' content, the thinking goes. Over ...

HBO’s programming boss says Netflix’s enormous spending in TV feels like the ‘irrational exuberance’ of the 90s dot-com bubble – Silicon Alley

HBO programming chief Casey Bloys had some criticism for the runaway spending of his network's streaming rivals, Netflix and Amazon, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Bloys speculated that widespread, exorbitant TV spending could mean that the industry is "in a bubble."
He said that his rivals' spending feels like "irrational exuberance," in a reference to Alan Greenspan's label for the dot-com bubble of the 1990s.
HBO programming chief Casey Bloys had a degree of criticism for the big spending of his network's streaming-based rivals, Netflix and Amazon, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
In a conversation centered on the million-dollar salaries HBO is paying stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon for a second season of its hit series "Big Little Lies," Bloys also discussed the record-breaking, nine-figure contracts Netflix has given to successful showrunners Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes in the past year...

Don’t hold your breath waiting for Mark Zuckerberg to resign — or be pushed out.
The Facebook co-founder and chief executive said he’s still the right man to lead the company despite its recent turmoil, on a conference call with the media on Wednesday afternoon. When asked if he’s best equipped to steer Facebook, Zuckerberg answered with a quick “yes,” before expanding.
“I think life is about learning from the mistakes and figuring out what you need to do to move forward,” said Zuckerberg. “I think the reality of a lot of this is that when you’re building something like Facebook that is unprecedented in the world, there are going to be things that you mess up. And if we’d gotten this right, we’d have messed something else up.”

Début mai, les utilisateurs de produits Apple, qui sont généralement aussi titulaires d'un identifiant Apple, pourront se rendre sur le portail de gestion de leur compte pour y télécharger une copie de toutes les données stockées sur les serveurs du constructeur. Bloomberg explique également que le site permettra à l'utilisateur de modifier les informations personnelles le concernant, de désactiver temporairement leur compte, et de le supprimer.

Si l'on peut déjà éditer une partie de son profil depuis le site d'Apple, en télécharger les données exige actuellement d'en passer directement par le constructeur. Si l'Europe est la première concernée par ces nouveautés (le reste du monde le sera par la suite), c'est pour une bonne raison : c'est à partir du 25 mai qu'entre en vigueur dans l'Union européenne le règlement géné ...

What timing! Snapchat is building a way for people to use their Snapchat account to connect with third-party apps. The idea, in theory, would let Snapchat users grant outside companies access to their Snapchat data to help personalize other services.
If that’s the case — and it looks like it is, based on these screenshots Mashable published on Tuesday — it would mean that Snap is building out the same kind of API that just got Facebook into a whole mess of trouble.
You can’t make these things up.
Mashable saw a beta version of Snapchat with a new section called “Connected Apps,” with text that reads, “These apps are connected to your Snapchat account. Choose an app to control what it has access to.”
Snapchat currently has an advertising API so people can buy ads through third-party dashboards, but it doesn’t let people use their Snapchat account on other apps, or help people connect with their Snapchat friends on other platforms...

Facebook is not getting any bigger in the United States – Recode – All

It looks like Facebook’s U.S. user growth has officially peaked. It’s starting to...

It looks like Facebook’s U.S. user growth has officially peaked. It’s starting to feel official: Facebook’s U.S. audience is as big as it’s going to get.
Facebook is massive in this country. More than two-thirds of Americans, specifically 68 percent, use the service, according to new research from Pew Research Center.
The troubling news: If you’re a Facebook investor, that number hasn’t increased over the past two years. Roughly 68 percent of U.S. adults used Facebook in 2016, too.

This shouldn’t come as a total shock. Facebook reported its first quarter-over-quarter decline in daily users in the U.S. and Canada at the end of 2017. And while the decline was small, just 700,000 users, it served as a red flag that the company may finally be tapped out in its most valuable market.
Facebook CFO Dave Wehner may disagree. Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference on Wednesday he addressed the decline in North Amer ...

Here’s who owns everything in Big Media today – Recode – All

It probably won’t look like this for long. The media landscape used to be straightforward: Content companies — studios — made stuff — TV shows and movies — and sold it to pay TV distributors, who sold it to consumers.
Now things are up for grabs: Netflix buys stuff from the studios, but it’s making its own stuff, too, and it’s selling it directly to consumers. That’s one of the reasons older media companies are trying to compete by consolidating. And new distributors like Verizon and AT&T are getting in on the action. AT&T, for instance, wants to merge with Time Warner.
Meanwhile, giant tech companies like Google, Amazon and Apple that used to be on the sidelines are getting closer and closer to the action.
To help sort this all out, we’ve created a diagram that organizes distributors, content companies and internet video companies by market cap and their main lines of business.
Here’s what the Big Media universe cu ...
