  • 2 weeks ago
  • Technology company ScreenHits is launching ScreenHits TV, a streaming video aggregator app that lets consumers bundle different services together in a single interface.
  • The service creates a one-stop electronic programming guide where users can search the libraries of both free and subscription streaming platforms, as well as live online TV without jumping from platform to platform and without having to repeatedly sign up for new services.
  • Subscribers of SVOD platforms such as Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, MUBI and other streaming services, including BBC iPlayer, can integrate their existing services within the app, which is set to go live across multiple territories, including the U.S. and the U.K., by the end of this month.
  • Entry-level subscriptions to ScreenHits will start at $1.99/£1.99 per month and will initially be available on Samsung Smart TVs, Amazon Fire Stick, Apple Store, Google Chrome, Android and for the desktop.

  • Downloads of the $1.8 billion short-form streaming app, meant for phones, are paltry. "I attribute everything that has gone wrong to coronavirus," Mr. Katzenberg said. "Everything."
  • Quibi fell out of the list of the 50 most downloaded free iPhone apps in the United States a week after it went live on April 6. It is now ranked No. 125, behind the game app Knock’em All and the language-learning app Duolingo.
  • Even with a free 90-day trial, the app has been installed by only 2.9 million customers, according to Sensor Tower. Quibi says the figure is more like 3.5 million. Of those who have installed the app, the company says 1.3 million are active users.

Apple, Amazon, and common Enemies

It is tempting — and useful — to look at Apple and Amazon's deal in a bilateral context. It probably makes more sense, though, in the context of Netflix and the future of video.

Apple and Amazon video deal is part of a long-term strategy to fight a potential Netflix-dominated future after most competing streaming services fold, says Ben Thompson in his latest post.

  • In light of the movie theaters being brought to a standstill, Universal Pictures is changing the game.
  • The Comcast-owned studio will be making digital rentals of new release movies available for $19.99.
  • The rental will be available for 48-hours once you start the film. Normally, films become available to rent 4-5 months after their theatrical release date.
  • Starting on March 20th, some titles currently in theaters will be available for rent. Some of those include The Hunt (released March 13th), The Invisible Man (released February 28th), and Emma (released February 20th).
  • However, the biggest news is that they will release DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour on-demand the same day it is released in theaters (April 10th).
