Sky’s making a kids app that will rival Netflix and YouTube

What CES 2015 made clear: The cable industry has lost its power to control how we watch TV

The big cable-related game changer at CES this year was Dish Network’s announcement that it would soon offer a standalone web TV service called Sling TV that will give you access to ESPN, ESPN 2, the Disney Channel, ABC Family, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, TNT, CNN, TBS, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim for $19.99 per month. Couple this with recent announcements that HBO has already announced plans to launch a standalone streaming service next year and consider that Showtime is reportedly going to soon follow suit, and you can see the traditional cable bundle is coming unraveled. – Brad Reed, BGR

Turner Networks, Including CNN, Return To Dish Network

The companies just made the terse announcement that they have “mutually decided to restore service of CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, truTV, Turner Classic Movies: TCM, HLN, CNN en Español and Boomerang, and extend the carriage of TBS and TNT” — but will have no “further comment.” That leaves unanswered the question of whether they have a deal yet. Also unknown is whether Turner’s channels will join Disney, Scripps Networks Interactive, and A&E on Dish’s streaming video service, which Chairman Charlie Ergen says he expects to launch before year end. […] Turner said it was mystified and disappointed by Ergen’s attacks “particularly given the fact that Dish agreed to our rates and carriage proposals” and the programmer was “supportive of the Dish OTT effort and had found common ground on the major issues there. While there were clearly deal points to get done, they were not the type you would usually go dark over.” – David Lieberman,Deadline Hollywood

Did HBO’s Streaming Service Play a Role In Dish-Turner Fracas?

It has been more than two weeks since satellite broadcaster Dish Network Corp. abruptly dropped several cable networks owned by Time Warner ’s Turner Broadcasting unit, including CNN and Cartoon Network. No resolution is in sight. […] Privately, though, several Turner executives say they suspect a major factor in the breakdown of talks was the decision by HBO, another Time Warner unit, to launch a standalone streaming video service. […] Dish has a history of not taking too kindly to programmers that offer their content online to consumers without requiring a pay-TV subscription. Earlier this year, World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. launched its own over-the-top network and Dish retaliated by refusing to carry WWE’s pay-per-view events. – Joe Flint,The Wall Street Journal
