  • Video game spending up 3%; Xbox One takes console lead [View news story]
    Yes, just for April -- PS4 is still the cumulative leader.

    The companies are notably very circumspect about the exact numbers.

  • LiveDeal misses on revenue [View news story]
    Expectations for $5.2M, but it's just from one analyst ... they are thinly covered

  • AT&T deal to offer its customers Hulu subscriber content [View news story]
    AP says that Hulu will still be billing people separately, so this looks more like a reseller arrangement, until a U-verse app comes along.

    In the item I indicated that it will be "later this year" ... they're not any more specific than that.

  • WSJ: Charter seeking up to $30B in debt for a TWC deal [View news story]
    This is true and I edited it to clarify ... there is a lot of "Liberty" crosstalk on their calls and my point was that Malone and Maffei have partners ready to show up with investment to make a deal happen.

    Playing or reading Seeking Alpha? Or can you do both?

  • 'Game of Thrones' audience grows 17% to series high [View news story]
    This season is supposed to depart heavily from the books (and apparently it has a bit already) ... the series may be taking more of George R.R. Martin's time than the book writing.

  • After Hours Gainers / Losers [View news story]
    Can you point to definitive info about the GSAT volume you're talking about? We don't include a stock in this after-hours movers post unless it has traded 5,000 shares.

    >The one block that your article apparently refers to was 10 shares at $3.45 that occurred at 5:28 pm.

    This post states clearly that these are what was moving *as of 5:15 p.m.* so a 5:28 trade wouldn't be included in the figure.

  • Cablevision becomes new launch partner for HBO Now [View news story]
    Let's be clear: This is news coverage. It's not here to say "buy that; sell this." But it is here to help people make sense of developments that are happening, as they are happening.

    Not having every answer to private negotiations doesn't make something not news -- or else WSJ, NYT etc. are also not news.

    Of the HBO Now revenue. AAPL's priced it at $15/month; if we assume they get a 30% cut, for every subscriber they'd take $4.50 and the other $10.50 would go to HBO.

    No, because CVC will collect revenue for the subs they sell; AAPL will collect revenue for the subs they sell. The different cuts will be between TWX and their partners, and they might vary (we don't know what they are; they might be the same, maybe 30% to resellers like AAPL and CVC, maybe more).
