For folks who might enjoy, say, Game of Thrones and VEEP, but not enough to pay for HBO or HBO NOW just for those two shows, […] Walmart’s streaming service VUDU might make sense: it charges per episode for TV shows, instead of requiring an upfront subscription fee for access to its libraries. VUDU is now sweetening the deal on some shows, knocking the per-episode price of all 2015 Emmy nominees and winners down to $0.67. – Mary Beth Quirk, The Consumerist

The Emmy nomination of “Agatha Christie’s Poirot: Curtain, Poirot’s Last Case” was not simply an odd surprise. It was the first Primetime Emmy nomination for a niche streaming service. Netflix (“House of Cards,” “Orange Is the New Black” and now “Bloodline” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Amazon (“Transparent”) are the blue whales of internet streaming. Acorn TV, which submitted “Poirot” for an Emmy, is a little fish. But little fish can swim fast, and Acorn may well be the harbinger of a future full of successful niche streaming services as viewers cut their cable cords and move online. – Aljean Harmetz, Thompson On Hollywood via indieWIRE

All those jokes about cable vs. streaming make me think it really is time for some Emmy reform

[I]t doesn’t feel like we’ll ever get on with fully enjoying good television so long as we’re hung up on mutual worries about the business of distributing television. Somehow, even though most of us are not network executives, this has become everybody’s problem. I expect people who work in the industry to obsess on those issues, but their obsession has become viewers’ obsession too — and more than just about the size of our monthly cable and satellite bills. We’re consumers. We just want to watch the stuff. Some of us — quite a few of us, in fact — are willing to pay for it, too. – Hank Stuever,Washington Post Blog

The Battle Between HBO And Netflix Just Got Real

HBO got 99 of the Emmy nominations announced on Thursday, the 14th year in a row the cable network has gotten more nods than any of its rivals. […] But Netflix garnered 31 nominations more than doubling last year’s haul of 14. That puts Netflix at 7th on the list of networks getting nominations, but it is climbing up the ranks quickly. And the networks ahead of it are all “real” TV networks like CBS and ABC. Their nomination tallies aren’t growing as fast. – Alexis Kleinman, HuffPost Tech http://ift.tt/1rYhjRq

Emmy Watch: Streaming for a Win

Orange Is the New Black could lead to Emmy gold.
