    You're correct; I was listing the forward yield when it was declared, but have added in info to point out that the yield is higher today.

  • Canadian upfronts at smaller scale this year  [View news story]
    These are meetings/presentations where the broadcasters put on a show for advertisers, and based on what they see, the advertisers/agencies purchase a lot of their commercial airtime on programs "up front," months ahead of the upcoming TV season. Oftentimes it comes alongside the most solid news about returning/canceled programs.

  • Cable customer service still coming up short  [View news story]
    There is a mix of ratings since the various services have a number of overlapping services. So the overall look is kind of an aggregate.

  • Judge certifies potentially huge class action against Sirius XM  [View news story]
    Nothing's "made up" here. If you click through, you'd find a wealth of (complex) info on the cases, and that number comes from prior litigation with SIRI.

    Here's the doc (http://bit.ly/1HMQsAD) detailing the mechanical approach to calculating damages and you can assess the relative risk level yourself.

  • Take-Two misses revenues after heavy deferrals  [View news story]
    Looks like a comment glitch hid these for a while. Incidentally, when we do earnings coverage we link the original press releases and other docs directly from the item ... you can see it at the bottom of item above.

  • Take-Two misses revenues after heavy deferrals  [View news story]
    Yes -- the freshly released part was an incidental comment about that game and yes it should be a key contributor to Q1.

  • 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.

    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.
