Amazon to compete with Netflix

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 2 February 2011 7:34 pm Amazon is developing a film streaming service that would see it compete directly with firms such as Netflix, according to industry sources.It is understood Amazon is planning to bundle access to the streaming service with Amazon Prime, a scheme that guarantees Amazon customers unlimited free next-day shipping of books and other items sold by the online retailer after paying an initial fee of £50 a year.A leaked promotion for the service suggested movies would be free for Amazon Prime customers.The on-demand TV market is becoming increasingly competitive, with internet giant Google ready to launch a new service, Apple recently upgrading its Apple TV offering and firms such as US-based Hulu becoming increasingly popular.Internet-ready TVs are also coming to the forefront of the industry, with firms including Sony, Samsung and Panasonic all unveiling new models earlier this year.The move follows Amazon’s £200m acquisition of DVD rental and streaming firm LoveFilm last month. Amazon already owned 42 per cent of the firm but took direct control in a move that was welcomed by analysts, who say Amazon is in an ideal position to grow the business.

Media giant News Corp said its quarterly net income had jumped from $254m (£157m) to $642m on the strength of its TV businesses, though a $500m settlement charge last year depressed comparable profits. News Corp also revealed a $275m charge for the quarter, mostly due to its restructuring of the loss-making social network MySpace. Time Warner’s fourth-quarter profit and revenue beat Wall Street expectations, thanks to a 21 per cent jump in cable advertising sales across its networks including CNN. The group raised its dividend by 11 per cent and increased its stock buyback plan to $5bn, forecasting “low teens” percentage growth for 2011. And Visa posted a 16 per cent rise in quarterly profit to $884m yesterday, slightly ahead of expectations, with the amount spent on Visa cards up 15 per cent to $897bn for the last three months of 2010. However, Visa shares fell slightly in after-hours trading after the firm failed to address concerns about how the Dodd-Frank financial reforms will limit its sales processing business. last_img read more

Euro falls on back of German data

first_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Monday 7 February 2011 8:41 pm THE euro dropped to a two-week low against the dollar yesterday slipping 0.2 per cent to $1.3551, after month-on-month German industrial orders fell by 3.4 per cent in December.The soft data from the Eurozone’s powerhouse economy prompted investors to book profits after the euro’s new year rally. But, German new orders were up by almost 20 per cent compared to December 2009, and the monthly data was an “expected correction” following November’s surge, according to ING’s Carsten Brzeski. “German industry’s positive trend is unlikely to reverse,” he said.

The fat lady hasn’t sung

first_img whatsapp The fat lady hasn’t sung Wednesday 16 February 2011 8:28 pm Share THE across-the-board improvement in SocGen’s results will give some relief to chief executive Frédéric Oudéa after a ropey 2009.Analysts remain tepid on the stock but investors reacted positively yesterday with the share price gaining a solid 4.9 per cent by the end of the day.The bank still has to show that it can generate improved earnings while bringing its capital ratio in line with requirements: its core tier one ratio barely moved last year.But adding to the uncertainty is SocGen’s exposure to peripheral Eurozone economies: it has €2.7bn in net exposures to Greece, €2bn to Spain and €4.1bn to a sluggishly growing Italy.The combination means that, despite the progress, it is too soon to celebrate.

Customers could suffer in long run

first_img Tags: NULL OFCOM likes to present itself as a customer champion. Yesterday, it said its decision to slash mobile termination rates (MTRs) would “benefit consumers”. But despite the quango’s well-meant intentions, many consumers will soon be worse off as a result of these changes. That’s because MTRs – the wholesale charges made by mobile operators on those who piggyback on their network – disproportionately hit landline customers. Mobile customers will also benefit to a certain degree – especially if their friends and family are on other networks – although any gain is likely to be outweighed by costs elsewhere, as mobile operators operators hike other charges to protect their revenues. Currently, the UK still makes more landline calls than mobile ones, but only just: 53 per cent of calls were made on a landline in the second-quarter of 2010, the most recently available figures. So Ofcom can claim to be on the side of the majority. However, as everyone knows, consumers are increasingly using their mobile phone as the primary means of making voice calls. According to Ofcom’s own statistics, mobiles will account for a higher volume of voice calls than landlines by the first quarter of 2012, if not sooner. Meanwhile, Pay as You Go mobile users – who make very few calls but earn revenues for the operator by receiving them – will get less good deals. These are normally children, who are given “safety” mobiles by their parents, and the less well-off. That will be compounded by the increasingly long contracts that customers are being forced into, as network operators seek to claw back the costs of ever more sophisticated contracts. Maybe Ofcom should have left well alone.

World Cup betting drives growth in Denmark

first_img Denmark’s gambling sector soared over the summer thanks to a boost from the Fifa World Cup and growth in online casino. Figures from regulator Spillemyndigheden show that total revenue in the three months through to June 30 amounted to DKK1.63bn (£193.7m/€218.6m/$251.2m), up 11.5% on the corresponding period last year. Betting led the way in Denmark as punters rushed to place wagers on the World Cup, which ran from June 14 to July 15. Denmark lost on penalties to Croatia in the round of 16 stage, but the country’s progress in the tournament drove betting up to $100m, compared to around $80m in Q2 of 2017. The betting total for Q2 represents the largest quarterly revenue amount since Denmark legalised gambling in January 2012. According to Sportradar, global betting turnover on the World Cup hit €136bn. Betting was responsible for the majority of gambling activity in Q2, with a 39.7% market share. Online casino followed with a 32.9% share, after revenue in this market climbed from $70m in Q2 of last year to $82m.Gaming machines and land-based casinos were hit as punters instead turned their attention to betting and online gaming, with losses reported across both markets.Image: Russian Presidential Press and Information Office 4th October 2018 | By contenteditor Casino & games Email Address World Cup betting drives growth in Denmark AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Online casino revenue also up in second quarterlast_img read more
