Netflix Canada gets deal for Paramount movies

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2011

Netflix has now landed a multi-year deal to bring new movies and TV shows to the service’s streaming-only service in Canada. It covers about 350 titles that includes some recent hit movies like Iron Man 2 if you like superheroes and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button if you like an old Brad Pitt. The agreement includes exclusive subscription TV rights to first-run movies and puts movies in the “premium pay TV window” for releases.

This is great news for Canadian viewers. The service first came to Canada in the fall but suffered from a lack of content compared to the US. This deal should help with that problem.

Netflix has just added even more to it’s Watch Instantly lineup as it has reached an agreement with Epix to include films from Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM Studios starting September 1. The films will be available on Netflix only 90 days after their pay TV debuts.

What this deal does is make Hollywood movies available to Netflix subscribers far more quickly, and in greater numbers. According to the LA Times, this deal could cost Netflix some $1 billion over its multi-year lifetime. This is another great reason to join Netflix.

Posted in Seagate by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2010

Seagate has just announced the latest FreeAgent Go USB 2.0 drive, a small external HDD with a 2.5-inch 500GB disc, with about 20GB that’s already claimed. That’s because Seagate has partnered with Paramount Pictures in order to pre-load these drives with Star Trek, which can be unlocked after you register the drive.

There are also 20 other titles pre-loaded, which can be unlocked through the online purchase of a license key, with pricing ranging from $9.99 to $14.99 per film. And if you aren’t impressed, you can always just delete them.

startrek-sbIt’s very nearly the ides of March meaning that the summer is only a few months away bringing with it the summer movie season. Certainly one of the most anticipated movies of the season is the new J.J. Abrams directed Star Trek film.

The trailers I have seen for the flick appear to do the series justice, all without the over acting William Shatner made famous. Paramount Pictures announced recently that the latest trailer for the film that debuted March 6 exclusively on Apple.com has broken download records for the site.

Samsung DelveThe iPhone has spawned a wealth of me too handsets that look very similar to its slick design and offer a very similar feature set. To this point none of the me too devices have managed to come close to matching the success of the iPhone. That hasn’t kept the competitors from trying to bring their own iPhone clone to market though.

One of the more recent iPhone clones to debut is the Samsung Delve. It looks very much like the iPhone and that is likely where the similarities end. To promote the Delve, Samsung Mobile and Paramount Digital Entertainment have teamed up to offer a special movie deal to buyers.

Paramount goes Blu-ray making it the last of the major studiosParamount was the last of the big Hollywood studios to officially make the move to Blu-ray, announcing on Wednesday that they are pleased with the industry finally picking a single format with the consumer in mind. Paramount did not elaborate much on the announcement but by doing so removed all doubt that HD DVD has met its demise.

The announcement came a day after Toshiba’s Tuesday announcement of the end of HD DVD and the end of manufacturing by the end of March. All six studios working with a single format reduces consumer confusion and will likely bring more sales of media and players than retailers would see by trying to push two different formats.
