Hulu At Risk Of Losing Next Day Streaming Service

Hulu

Streaming networks are proving to be a huge success. With Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, all creating their own original content, cable networks and broadcast TV seems to be on the losing end of the competition. But what sets Hulu apart from Netflix and Amazon is the fact that they can air your favorite TV shows the very next day, and with a paid subscription, you can watch full seasons of those shows anytime you want. Of course, with an option like that at your disposal, why even bother why paying a cable subscription at all? HBO figured that out with their on-demand service HBO Go.

But now it looks like the option to watch your favorite shows the very next day could be eliminated as Time Warner Cable is currently considering purchasing 25% of Hulu. The reason is because Time Warner believes that Hulu airing full, current seasons anywhere outside of the pay TV is harmful to their business. More on the story below.

Movie Ticket Prices Hit $20 … Without The Popcorn & Soda

Scrooge McDuck

Remember when it was outrageous to go to a movie theater because a $7-$10 admission ticket paired with an $8 tub of popcorn and a $6 soda for just one person was breaking banks nation wide? You haven’t seen anything yet.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that multiple movie theaters in New York City — where prices have consistently remained highest — is charging a nice round $20 fee to see Shrek Forever After in their 3D IMAX theaters. That’s right — if you plan on taking your family of four out for a night to see the kids’ beloved Shrek, Donkey, Fiona, and Puss in Boots, it will easily run you more than $100 if you add a snack or liquid refreshment.

If this catches on, it could mean that theaters everywhere could be charging as much as it costs us to BUY & OWN the movie on Blu-ray or DVD just to see the flick one time, one sunny afternoon.
