“Netflix has made 14 shows,” […] “Take any 14 shows we’ve made — they’re better. Any 14 shows — on average, our shows are better.” “By the way, they have made some great shows in that 14,” [John Landgraf] continued. “I would be absolutely proud to have made and to program Orange Is the New Black. But the average quality of the shows they put out is not as good as ours, and I think that’s a lack of careful attention.” – Ryan Gajewski, The Hollywood Reporter

Apple will launch its attack against pay TV companies this fall

Late on Monday, The Wall Street Journal published a report relaying that Apple Inc. has plans to launch a subscription-based streaming TV service this fall. According to the report, Apple’s TV offering will cost users approximately $30 to $40 a month and will offer a somewhat lightweight selection of 25 channels. Some of the cable channels reportedly on-board already include big names such as ESPN and FX. Naturally, the service will reportedly include content from major networks like ABC, CBS and FOX. But notably absent from the mix is NBCUniversal. This is supposedly the result of negotiation difficulties Apple previously experienced with Comcast, NBCUniversal’s parent company. – Yoni Heisler, BGR

Netflix vs. Shomi: What you can expect from the Rogers/Shaw streaming service

As you may have heard, the new streaming video service, coming from Rogers Media and Shaw Media, will be available to Rogers and Shaw Internet and cable customers in a beta version starting the first week of November. The Netflix-like venture will cost viewers $8.99 per month, and by the end of its first year, the service will reportedly include 1,200 movies and 340 TV titles. […] But if you already have Netflix, should you even bother adding Shomi to your digital viewing arsenal? I guess it depends on what you think of the content.
