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.

BBC director general Tony Hall has said he believes the licence fee has "got 10 years of life left in it". However the director general dismissed the suggestion of replacing the charge with a subscription model to pay for the BBC's output. - bbc.in/1GBDRNz // &! The Guardian view on the licence fee: a time to rally round the BBC - The way to stop the Conservatives marginalising the corporation is to make them realise that an assault would spell political disaster - bit.ly/1JzeQ6F [...] What is pernicious about these objections, supposedly arising from principle, is that they frequently veil envy of the BBC from its business competitors, whether Rupert Murdoch or the Daily Mail.
