    Hi folks -- trying to solve this; looks like an automated misfiling linking the wrong Majescoes.

  • New film releases tank as 'Martian' retakes box office lead  [View news story]
    True. I often give stock links to distributors though especially when we're focusing on domestic box office. There are a lot of fingers in this particular pie on a worldwide basis (Fox and Warner are distributing elsewhere)

  • J.C. Penney slides 9% as it sheds 9% of HQ jobs  [View news story]
    Yes, thanks ... I had hoped to get at the post-Ron difference, but not very well. Edited to make sure it's accurate.

  • HBO launching stand-alone service in Latin America, Caribbean  [View news story]
    As I mention in the item above, the Roku part is new, but the service has been expanding steadily since launch, to Android, Amazon, Go90, etc. along with a variety of cable systems ... previous coverage at http://bit.ly/1QeDWu6

  • HBO launching stand-alone service in Latin America, Caribbean  [View news story]
    Hi all:

    This item is about HBO expanding its competitive interface in this region and as I mentioned, I hope it helped that I added language to clarify what was a pretty innocuous marketing point from Netflix, to set up more of an apples-to-apples comparison to see what HBO was getting into.

    In the interest of full information, here are the exact 43 LA locations in which Netflix offers service and which HBO may be moving into -- which was the point of the item. The source is Netflix.

    Cayman Islands
    Dominican Republic
    Puerto Rico
    Saint Barthélemy
    St. Kitts & Nevis
    St. Lucia
    St. Vincent and the Grenadines
    Trinidad & Tobago
    Turks & Caicos Islands
    Virgin Islands
    Costa Rica
    El Salvador
    French Guiana

    Hope that helps lay the issue to rest ...

    As a stickler I adjusted this to say countries and territories.
    Did you really just cite Wikipedia?

    Creatively dead, I figure you mean? Because they're making money hand over fist ...

    Fair enough; I added in a word to clarify we are talking about comparing postpaid plans across.

  • Novavax reverses gains, tumbles 21% after RSV trial  [View news story]
    Interestingly, Tenthoff seems bullish on the science (he points to application with the elderly) and the stock overall ... but may be shaping that opinion on the cold business prospects.

  • NBC blocked from Utah's DirecTV subscribers  [View news story]
    Well, their contract ran out, so KSL and DirecTV don't have to work together ever again if they don't want to. But customers may have a different outlook on that.

    Thanks -- that's a quote from Bazinet but it could use a clarifier about the wirelines, which I have added in.

  • Sprint falls in line, will do away with contracts  [View news story]
    I think this does mean more cycled iPhones ... seems Sprint might not have gone along without help from SoftBank in processing the turned-in phones, so they must be anticipating heavy turnover. If a customer consents to the $22/month ($17/month for early birds), why wouldn't they be changing their phones every September instead of every two years?

  • Sprint gains 8% after hours on news of $87M SoftBank share buy  [View news story]
    SoftBank is saying they do not intend to own more than 85% of Sprint as that would trigger a tender offer.
