The NFL announced Wednesday that the league and DirecTV have reached an agreement on a new deal that, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell, is worth $1.5 billion per year for the next eight years.

Netflix is the exclusive home for four new Adam Sandler movies
 
(engadget.com) - Netflix said it had more movies coming other than the sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and it's already lining them up, starting with an exclusive four picture deal for Adam Sandler. The comedian's flicks have grossed over $3 billion worldwide, so we'll count it as a win and just forget about Jack & Jill and Blended. According to Sandler, the secret to getting the deal done was because "Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks."...

Update: Big theater chains team up against Netflix's first movie
 
Unsurprisingly, there's one group that's not at all excited to hear Netflix and IMAX are arranging for the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel to hit theaters and streaming at the same time: movie theater owners. According to the LA Times, Regal, AMC, Carmike and Cinemark have all stated they don't plan to screen Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend on their IMAX screens when it arrives next year, while Variety notes Canada's Cineplex and Europe's Cineworld are also staying away from the flick. The studios blocked a planned experiment to sell Tower Heist viewing for $60 a pop (honestly, they saved everyone there) back in 2011, but it seems doubtful they'll be able to intimidate Netflix into backing down....

Netflix bullish after six-country European INVASION
 
(theregister.co.uk) - By any measure, Netflix’s European expansion – adding six more countries – could not have gone better, although this still does not mean the operator will achieve its bullish forecast of penetrating one-third of all homes within seven years of launching in every market.
 
That almost hubristic forecast will depend on factors yet to be determined, such as whether Netflix acquires premium sporting rights to complement its current diet of older window movies and TV shows, admittedly with increasing numbers of original productions.
 
But for now, Netflix can be content with its European launch, having added France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg to the UK, Ireland and the Nordic – countries where it was already present....

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend also shares a writer, John Fusco, with another Weinstein/Netflix team-up, the Marco Polo series that's arriving next year....
