Time Warner considering longer delay for Netflix, Redbox?

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on November 4th, 2010

Time Warner is considering a policy change that could mean longer delays for content to come to rental services like Netflix and Redbox. The current 28-day window has been pretty successful, but the current deals with partners are going to expire sometime in 2011. At that point, the company might want to extend the delay period. Not good for netflix users.

The company may also be planning to offer brand new movies via video-on-demand (VOD), before the titles are even out of theaters. This move is expected sometime in the middle of next year.

NBC, Time Warner are sticking with Flash

Apparently, everybody isn’t ready to throw Flash under the bus just because Steve Jobs doesn’t like it. Time Warner and NBC have just told Apple that they will stick with flash for their online video players, thank you very much.

The New York Post says, “several large media companies, including Time Warner and NBC Universal” told Apple they aren’t converting their video libraries to HTML5. Doing that would be too expensive an undertaking and not worth it, since Flash works on basically everything but Apple’s devices. Makes sense to us.

Apple and HarperCollins negotiating e-book deal for tablet

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2010

According to The Wall Street Journal, publishing company HarperCollins is in talks with Apple about bringing e-books to Apple’s rumored tablet. You know, the one that’s expected to be the focus of its January 27th event. That tablet.

Apparently other publishing companies have been in talks with Apple as well. Sure, e-book readers are what it’s all about at the moment, but soon after it will be all about being integrated into slates. It’s still unconfirmed and just a rumor, but this one makes logical sense and gels with what we’ve been hearing.
