Netflix and ill: is the golden age of TV coming to an end? | Media | The Guardian
At US television networks, budget struggles mean making shows more as UK networks do, except with lots of ads and product placement: shorter lifespans, fewer sets and special effects, fewer episodes per series – and then little margin for error if shows look like they’re failing early on.

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. [ GET IT NEVER PRODUCED (risk averse Hollywood) OR ASK THEM; Amazon, Netflix, Hulu - Co-Produce! or own it wholly. ]

BBC TV chief warns of US threat after big-money Amazon deals | Media | The Guardian
>> iPlayer needs to become an international subscription business. and leverage the BBC brand (sought after and trusted, it's the last public crown jewl that actually can compete in a global market! Channel 4 or ITV can't. ) // “Their model is built on having global rights and we have got to respect that. They are a very smart, impressive bunch of people,” Cohen said. “The key thing we look at more and more is the impact of global competition rather than just in the UK where very big companies can distribute their content around the world. That is a very big challenge.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May sign for Amazon Prime - BBC News
The Amazon deal is part of a major manoeuvre by the company to compete with traditional broadcasters and streaming rivals like Netflix. It has also signed up Woody Allen to make his first ever television series, while Amazon's comedy Transparent received 11 Emmy nominations earlier this year. Meanwhile, Top Gear will continue on BBC Two, with Chris Evans among the new hosts. Lisa Clark, who worked with Evans on The Big Breakfast, has just been announced as the show's new producer. "Lisa is as good as it gets when it comes to making big, important television shows," Evans said. // bit.ly/1ODzljT - In a joke at the expense of the BBC, Clarkson said: “I feel like I’ve climbed out of a biplane and into a spaceship.” [...] [ Producer not worried not able to take Top Gear name with them, Top Gear was Top Gear because of it's presenters / figure heads / characters / the dynamic between the three.

George Osborne forces BBC to pay for over-75s' TV licences | Media | The Guardian
+ the short-fall from people not paying TV licence because they don't watch live TV, only catch-up on the iPlayer (loophole) // bit.ly/1KLEiJo - BBC supporters say funding deal will cause cuts to jobs and services [...] “So sad to see the government’s demonising of the BBC. Best in the world at what it does, the BBC is a British success story.” [...] [estimates of cut up to 12%] [...] “awful” and “quick and dirty deal” [...] “It feels as if the BBC had a gun to their head and chose to get shot in the leg instead. It is bound to lead to cuts in jobs, services and quality. It could well mean the end of free TV licences for the elderly.” [...] a bullying backroom deal over a couple of days. //&! bit.ly/1CmmWzM - It’s hard fighting in the digital age, but picking up the tab for free pensioner TV licences is a perilous choice &! bit.ly/1LR9nuv

BBC to cut more than 1,000 jobs - BBC News
bbc.in/1GQXVcJ - leaner simpler, delayering &! TV Licence shortfall - there will be calls to close iPlayer loophole // &! 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.
