Amazon Ups the Ante on Streaming Video, Challenging Netflix
Amazon has pulled the curtain back on its $9-a-month standalone video streaming service, which will give consumers access to content they otherwise could only get through Amazon Prime, which costs $99 a year. Amazon's new service is $1 a month cheaper than rival Netflix, // For years, the two have worked to one-up each other with exclusive content deals and original series like Netflix’s “House of Cards” and Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle.” [...] Amazon spends about $3 billion on streaming video content annually, compared with $4 billion for Netflix, not including overseas rights or DVDs, said Wedbush’s Mr. Pachter. For its part, Santa Monica, Calif.-based Hulu has become a competitive buyer of library and original programming, increasing its content outlays from $600 million in 2014 to $1.5 billion in 2015, according to estimates from Nomura Securities.

This July the current director general, Tony Hall, agreed to shoulder the burden in return for relief from other costs.

but that some media owners had a negative effect on the industry. “I think there has been a negative pull on the British media and I blame some of the proprietors for that. I still think the BBC is pretty good and I would defend it to the death, even though I have never worked for it.” [...] Asked about press coverage of Jeremy Corbyn, he said some of those writing about the Labour leader were “experiencing some kind of fear”, adding: “I think they may need to see a psychiatrist.” He said the biggest issues facing the UK were housing and inequality between the very rich and very poor, adding: “I don’t think there will be a revolution, but it has all the characteristics of what has led to revolution in the past.” [...] [ on Journalism / Covering human tragedy ] He said that while he tries to remain objective, “sometimes when powerful emotions are in play, this can be very, very hard”.

BBC independence 'eroded', says director general - BBC News
In a speech to business leaders on Monday, Tony Hall will urge changes to the way the broadcaster is regulated. He wants licence fee payers to have a greater say than politicians. Lord Hall says there has been a "major change" over the past 20 years which has made the foundations of the BBC's independence "weaker". The government has yet to comment. "When I was working in news and current affairs in the '90s, the independence of the BBC was protected by a set of quiet customs and traditions," he will say. "Back then it was Willie Whitelaw who'd provided us with the certainty of a 15-year Charter, underpinning our independence by allowing us stability through the political cycle. [...] He also suggests recent licence fee settlements have been decided behind closed doors without a "full process".

He said it would not be "an expansionist BBC" and warned that funding cuts would mean it would "inevitably have to either close or reduce some services". However he did not specify which services might be under threat. // &! bit.ly/1KX2eJc - The source added: “We have a strong commitment to uphold global democracy through accurate, impartial and independent news.

Live the dream and live out in Derbyshire and travel in, or get a little flat in Manchester. A lot of younger people starting out who can’t afford London any more look to Salford and Media City. We really benefit from the negative side of London’s growth.”
