The service will be offered free or for $4.99 depending on a subscriber's particular Comcast package, but a subscription to Comcast's TV and broadband services will be required.

    A growing number of Hollywood directors, actors, and writers are taking their talents to the Web, and in doing so presenting a challenge to old-guard studios still beholden to TV, theater, and DVD-based distribution. The talent is drawn not only by the growing investments made by in Netflix (NFLX), YouTube (GOOG), and others in original programming, but also by the promise of greater creative freedom.

    Netflix (NFLX -0.4%) says it's bringing back its $8/month DVD-only rental plan, cancelled following the short-lived introduction of Qwikster. While the move won't satisfy those still upset over Netflix's DVD/streaming price hike, it could please those who care more about the superior movie selection provided by Netflix's DVD library than the greater convenience of streaming.

    CBS (CBS -3.6%), looking to bolster tepid growth in its Entertainment division, mentioned during its Q4 earnings call that it's "talking to Netflix (NFLX) about a potential deal to produce a show for them." Along with its in-house production efforts, Netflix has already struck a deal with Twentieth Century Fox (NWS, NWSA) for the creation of new episodes of Arrested Development. (CBS Q4)

    Netflix (NFLX), which ended Q4 with less than 24M streaming subscribers, is aiming to eventually have 60M-90M, or 2x-3x as many as HBO, according to a presentation from Reed Hastings. His logic: Netflix is cheaper than HBO, doesn't require a cable subscription, offers a wider selection of content, and features a personalized UI. It has also been labeled as "rerun TV" due to its focus on older shows. (earlier)

    Netflix (NFLX -3.2%) shares slide after the company late Friday announced a lawsuit settlement retroactively applied to its recently announced Q4 results. NFLX new EPS for the quarter is $0.66, it says in a year-end SEC filing; earlier, it had reported earnings of $0.73 on sales of $876M.

    As Netflix (NFLX) debuts its first original series and YouTube (GOOG) significantly expands its professional offerings, Amazon (AMZN) has apparently decided it wants in on the action: job postings (I, II) on the company's site indicate it's looking for creative execs to develop video content for Amazon Studios. The big question: when do such initiatives go from being mere nuisances to Hollywood studios to legitimate threats?

    Online video streaming services Netflix (NFLX) and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWS) are considering expanding their platforms to launch in Russia, according to a Russian newspaper. Hulu execs reportedly visited Moscow late last year and met with Russia’s leading film studios and video services, following a similar fact-finding mission by Netflix.

    Amazon (AMZN) douses the hopes of those wanting it to offer a standalone streaming video service to compete with Netflix (NFLX), stating Prime Video will only be available to those who pay $79 for an annual Prime membership "at least into the near future." On an annual basis, that still makes Prime Video cheaper than Netflix's $96/year, though the lack of a monthly payment option could deter some buyers.

    Netflix (NFLX -2.6%) slumps after Amazon (AMZN) announces its anticipated Prime Video deal with Viacom (VIA, VIAB). The deal adds over 2K titles from cable networks such as Nickelodeon, MTV, and Comedy Central, and boosts the size of Amazon's library to 15K (Netflix has 20K+). Ryan Lawler believes Prime Video now looks like a real competitor to Netflix, but thinks a standalone service is needed.

    More on Netflix (NFLX +1.3%): Nomura's Michael Nathanson provides some bullish commentary, arguing industry-wide spending on online streaming rights will slow as upstarts such as Amazon find it difficult to justify purchasing "a 'me too' set of content rights" to without having a streaming revenue base that justifies it. Perhaps, but Amazon has been quite willing to absorb losses in other areas. (earlier)

    Netflix (NFLX +0.2%) shares stage a quick turnaround on heavy volume, apparently traced to a report about the company's potential inclusion in Apple's (AAPL) new TV following a Best Buy (BBY) survey. Shares had been off sharply following news of a Coinstar-Verizon JV that could provide intense competition for NFLX later this year.

    Hudson Square Research's David Ernst doesn't quite buy that the new Coinstar (CSTR -0.1%)-Verizon (VZ +0.3%) JV is the definitive Netflix (NFLX -2.7%)- killer that has been long-awaited and often discussed. He says the two firms won't be able to match the large library of programming that NetFlix has racked up by spending $1B a year on content.
