- The media industry is busy evaluating the impact of a Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger even if the DOJ clips the size of the deal a bit.
- A key word for content providers today is leverage. A larger Comcast (CMCSA), (broadband and Pay-TV) would give it additional clout in negotiating retransmission contracts with networks (CBS, FOXA, AMCX, DISCA, SNI) and studios (DIS, TWX, LGF, SNE, DWA, VIAB) for home video sales.
- The relationship between streaming firms and Comcast could get more complicated. Though studios rake in money from Netflix, if Comcast ever decides to charge its massive base of broadband subscribers on a usage basis - both Netflix (NFLX) and Hulu are in harm's way.
- Companies with future ambitions in the online TV area (think Sony) might see additional pressures from a larger Comcast. In theory, the media giant could launch a similar national service.

- The box office tally for 2013 is forecast to reach $10.9B to edge out last year's mark of $10.8B.
- A string of Q4 hits and box office surprises helped the industry after the first three quarters of the year saw some worrying high-profile misfires for studios (CMCSA, DIS, TWX, LGF, SNE, DWA, FOXA, VIAB) .
- The outlook for 2014 looks brighter after theater operators (CKEC, CNK, RGC, MCS, RDI, AMC) saw success late in the year with higher pricing and with the IMAX (IMAX) format more entrenched with moviegoers.

- Dreamworks Animation (DWA) shares spike 8.7% AH after the company's Q3 results came in higher than expectations.
- Net income plunged to $10M in Q3 from $24.4M in Q3 2012 due to the tepid premiere of Turbo ($6.4M). Last year's Madagascar 3 summer release generated $47.1M. The weakness was largely offset by the successful worldwide TV debut of Rise of the Guardians, which contributed $42.4M.
- Management expects Q4 results to be driven primarily by its feature film segment and distribution of holiday-themed content.
