    [EN] Netflix despenca 25% na Nasdaq. Futura competição com HBO ajudou na queda.

    Netflix has suffered brutally today in the after-market, sinking 25% following the company's Q3 earnings announcement after the bell Wednesday.


    Netflix net added 3.02 million customers worldwide in the third quarter ended Sept. 30, below its forecast of 3.69 million. Netflix attributed the weak growth to the $1 increase in price for new subscriptions it announced in May.

    "This quarter we over-forecasted membership growth," Netflix said in a letter to shareholders. "As best we can tell, the primary cause is the slightly higher prices we now have compared to a year ago."

    The big news from Time Warner's (TWX) HBO that the company will bring to market a standalone streaming service next year, which will directly compete with the Netflix model. Netflix acknowledged this development in its note to shareholders today, but put a positive spin on the development by saying, "...[W]e think it is likely we both prosper as consumers move to Internet TV," calling the HBO move "inevitable and sensible."

    "Many people will subscribe to both Netflix and HBO since we have different shows, so we think it is likely we both prosper as consumers move to Internet TV," Netflix said.

    But in fact, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said recently that the company wants to "become HBO faster than HBO can become Netflix."

    None of this has been taken well by after-hours traders, however -- Netflix has currently sold off all of its considerable gains year to date. This is a considerably drastic immediate devaluation of a recent tech/entertainment high-flyer on the NASDAQ. But as analysts parse through the game-changing nature of the HBO development, early conclusions are that Netflix is no longer in the catbird seat of home entertainment.

    Getting back to the nuts and bolts of the earnings report, however, operating income has nearly doubled year over year. Market launches in Europe and expanding its original content have helped Netflix keep pace with analyst expectations for the most part. The company boasts over 53 million global members and $1.22 billion in revenue over the past 3 months.

    HBO stand-alone streaming service coming in 2015

    US media giant Time Warner said Wednesday it would launch a stand-alone HBO streaming service from next year, offering viewers without cable subscription hit shows like "Game of Thrones" and "Girls."

    The move allows HBO, also known for shows like "Sex and the City" and "The Wire" to enter the streaming-only video market dominated by Netflix.

    HBO chief Richard Plepler told an investor meeting that the new service would be aimed at consumers without a cable or satellite subscription, who have not been able to watch the premium channel until now.

    Plepler said the move would be "transformative for our company" by delivering the HBO service directly to consumers .

    "Currently there are 10 million broadband-only homes in the US," Plepler said.

    "That number is expected to grow. Of today's 10 million, about half subscribe to a streaming service. These consumers have no access to HBO. That is a large and growing opportunity, that should no longer be left untapped."

    Consumers currently can access HBO online through a service called HBO Go, but a subscription through cable or satellite is needed.

    Plepler offered no details on a specific launch date in 2015 or fees for the new service.

    He said "we will work with our current partners and we will explore models with new partners" in an effort to reach the 80 million homes which do not currently have HBO.

    HBO would offer consumers a streaming video service similar to that of Netflix, Amazon or Hulu, but with a large amount of original content -- something the others have only recently begun to produce.

    The new service specifically targets "cord cutters" who have been dropping costly cable subscriptions and other consumers who rely on streaming video.

    Forrester Research analyst James McQuivey said that for cable and satellite television providers which offer bundles and packages that include HBO, this news means "their worst fears have come true."


    "HBO has some of the most prized content on the TV screen and it appeals strongly to the young, affluent, educated demographic that is most likely to cut the cable cord in the next five to 10 years."

    HBO to stream shows on Web, no cable TV required

    HBO is planning to compete more directly with Netflix with a stand-alone Web version of its premium cable network that won’t require a cable or satellite TV subscription, the company said Wednesday.

    Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler said HBO will start offering the streaming service in the United States sometime next year.

    HBO said Plepler announced the news during an investor meeting hosted by parent company Time Warner after talking about the 10 million households that only have broadband Internet access and have cut the cord with traditional pay TV sources.

    “That is a large and growing opportunity that should no longer be left untapped,” Plepler said. “It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO.”

    Details of how the streaming service will work, what HBO content will be offered and how much it would cost were not announced. And it’s unclear how the service will avoid upsetting HBO’s longtime cable and satellite partners, although analysts have suggested in the past that HBO could release big hits like “Game of Thrones” online after they air on TV.

    But Plepler indicated that HBO was ready to go to war to stop the advance of Netflix, the Los Gatos company that now has about 50 million subscribers to its online streaming service.

    “We will work with our current partners, ” he said. “And, we will explore models with new partners. All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO, and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them.”

    During a presentation at the Time Warner Inc. investor day Wednesday morning, HBO’s CEO, Richard Plepler, said that HBO will begin selling a digital version of its programming next year that will not require a pay-TV subscription. Details were not on offer, but Plepler did say that it would be a “stand-alone, over-the-top” service and that HBO would work with its “current partners” and “explore models with new partners.”

    Plepler’s statement marks a sea-change in the pay-TV business. As is the case with any change of that magnitude, it might be easier said than done. Time Warner, Walt Disney Co. and other pay-TV networks have been well-compensated by cable and satellite operators for their original programming. Unless Plepler can convince the likes of Comcast Corp. and its presumed partner Time Warner Cable Inc., as well as Charter Communications Inc., Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. and its presumed partner DirecTV, that this will not cannibalize the pay-TV business, it is difficult to imagine how HBO can pull this off.

    HBO generated nearly $5 billion in revenues in 2013 by licensing its programming to pay-TV providers that then bundle the programming into a package with dozens or hundreds of other channels and sell those bundles to consumers. The cable and satellite providers have resisted breaking out the more popular networks, like HBO and Disney’s ESPN, in what’s called an “a la carte” offering, but that is exactly what HBO is now saying it will do on its own. The company already offers a service for subscribers called HBO Go that allows them to view HBO programming on other devices.

    According to Plepler, there are 10 million U.S. households that pay for only broadband access to the Internet and do not shell out for pay TV. There are 80 million households that do not subscribe to HBO. He sees this as an opportunity: “That is a large and growing opportunity that should no longer be left untapped. It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO.”

    Netflix: “We’re feeling incredible about international"

    David Wells, CFO, advised that Netflix peaked out of international loss at $105 million it guided in Q4 to a number that slightly lower than that. “But in terms of the potential down the road, we certainly could see that level of investment,” he admitted.

    By Colin Mann

    Speaking during a Q3 Earnings Call following a period in which Netflix reported net additions were lower than forecast, particularly for the US, CEO Reed Hastings has reaffirmed the company’s faith in its international expansion plans following its late summer launch in new Western European markets.

    “We’ve done numerous launches now starting in Canada four years ago, so we’re getting better and better at it,” he said. “We’ve got some of the fastest integration with MVPD set-tops that we’ve ever seen in the world. In the US, we still don’t really have anything material. In the UK, it took us a year-and-a-half to get Virgin and we were able to announce Orange and Deutsche Telekom, and these are all going live shortly or just turned live or going live over the next couple of months,” he advised.

    “So, really a great successful launch that portents well for us and that’s built in to the guidance. So, we’re feeling, I mean, just incredible about international when you think that from starting four years ago in Canada to – through to the Netherlands, so almost 40 countries, as a whole are now profitable, just an average of two or three years after starting. It’s a great success and that’s why we’re continuing to invest so rapidly at international,” he added.

    In terms of 2015 international expansion plans, Hastings said the company was trying to figure out which markets were most attractive and would have some announcements to make over the next year. “If you look at our long-term strategy, we’ve been extremely consistent over the past three years, saying that, we’re going to take all of our profits and put them into international expansion, because we see it as such a big opportunity. So think of that as the base case if we can move quickly enough, then we can deploy all of those profits in highly productive ways,” he suggested.

    David Wells, CFO, advised that Netflix peaked out of international loss at $105 million it guided in Q4 to a number that slightly lower than that. “But in terms of the potential down the road, we certainly could see that level of investment,” he admitted.

    CBS launches its own TV streaming service for $6 a month

    Less than a day after HBO finally promised to let users cut out the middle man, CBS has decided to do the same. The company is launching CBS All Access, which charges $6 a month to stream new episodes of its shows the day after broadcast. You'll be able to stream 15 of its prime-time shows in this way, including big hits like NCIS and The Big Bang Theory as well as 6,500 episodes of classic TV from the CBS back catalog as a sweetener. That'll enable you to binge down on classic shows like, uhm, MacGyver and I Love Lucy whenever and wherever you want. The platform will also enable you to watch the live streams from the Big Brother house when that show returns next year, which seems like an adequate apology after CBS helped kill off Aereo.

    There are a few caveats that we probably should mention. First up, you won't be able to live stream the Sunday and Thursday NFL games, as CBS doesn't own the rights to those games. Second, you'll only be able to view the streams if you live in an area where CBS owns the local affiliate, like in New York and Los Angeles. Thirdly, even though you're actually paying for the service, you're still going to have to sit through commercial breaks, because, guys, this is CBS we're talking about here. Still, if you like your shows to feature lots of people who used to be big names staring glumly at corpses, or the adventures of the boyfriend from Roseanne now that he's a scientist, or Magnum PI as a policeman, then you can snag a week's free trial down at the source.
