The content shuffle picks up

  • Starz (STRZA) has dropped content from Sony Animation (SNE), according to analysis from Janney Capital.
  • The initiative could lead to a savings of up to $35M a year as the company looks to grow through original programming and less expensive niche shows.
  • At least one Sony Animation title, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, is currently available on Netflix (NFLX) in what could be an important development for the streaming service.
  • Netflix has built a broad array of content for the younger demographic as part of its long-term growth strategy. On top of titles from Pixar, Disney, and DreamWorks - a deal with Sony gives the company a formidable stream of content aimed for children.

    may have been stopped out too early on NFLX with that 410.10 buy stop. Its looking even frothier up here at 417 after spiking to 425.60 today! Took a small long bear put spread position on the weekly 400/405's expiring next Friday.
