Netflix officially says 'enchanté' to France

(engadget.com) - During remarks at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia conference in New York, CEO Lowell McAdam said that the launch of the wireless company's online TV service would arrive "probably late in the first half of 2015."

STARZ Considering Going Direct To Consumer Via Web Without Pay TV Tie-In
(deadline.com) - Add Starz CEO Chris Albrecht to the list of premium channel chiefs who are seriously thinking about using the Internet to offer his programming directly to consumers — including those who don’t buy the pay TV bundle. “It’s not about a la carte,” he told the Goldman Sachs Communacopia investor confab in NYC. “It’s about adapting the technology and our businesses to what’s happening demographically” where 15% of millennials don’t subscribe to pay TV. The issue isn’t so much whether they’ll be so-called cord-nevers: Since most subscribe to broadband, “the question is whether they’ll be video nevers.”...

Netflix makes it easier to marathon shows using your Chromecast
(engadget.com) - Netflix is releasing new versions of both its Android and iOS apps that enable the serial viewing option when you're using Google's streaming media stick. It works much like you'd expect if you were watching on the mobile device itself, but gives you extra time to reach for that phone buried in the couch cushions.
