Netflix Struggles With Addition

blogs.wsj.com — For Netflix , one number still matters most: domestic subscriber net additions. The streaming video company's disappointing third-quarter figure helped wipe off more than a quarter of its value in after-market trading on Wednesday. Netflix said it added roughly 980,000 subscribers in the U.S., well short of earlier guidance for 1.33 million and the 1.29 million it posted a year earlier.

HBO Changes the Channel

online.wsj.com — HBO just put a date on the inevitable. The premium cable network said Wednesday that it would offer a stand-alone online-streaming version of its services in 2015.

Facebook More than Ads Up

blogs.wsj.com — Facebook is already punching above its weight in the ad market. American adults will spend 21 minutes a day on the social network in 2014, accounting for 6% of their digital media diet, eMarketer estimates. And only 52.8% of adults even use Facebook on a monthly basis.
