Comcast loses 238K video subscribers in Q3

Video still accounts for the biggest chunk of the Comcast Cable business and the segment’s $5.54 billion in revenue was down just 0.9% from the year prior. In the meantime, Comcast’s broadband and business services revenues both rose 9.3% to $4.72 billion and $1.97 billion, respectively. Comcast’s wireless revenues rose more than 38% during the quarter, though it still only accounts for $326 million of the segment’s $14.58 billion in consolidated revenues, which were up 4% year over year. – Ben Munson, FierceVideo » https://ift.tt/2qF4Sl7 [photo: Orin Zebest/Flickr]

Court rules the FCC can’t block state net neutrality laws

The FCC has won a key bid to uphold its repeal of net neutrality, but at a significant cost. A federal appeals court handling a Mozilla complaint has ruled that most of the repeal can stand, but that the FCC had “not shown legal authority” to ban states from implementing their own laws. The regulator was trying to “categorically abolish” states’ established power to regulate communications within their borders, according to the court. – Jon Fingas, Engadget » https://engt.co/2oWgXl0 [photo:Orin Zebest/Flickr]

Apple Offered J.J. Abrams Far More Than WarnerMedia; Here’s Why He Said No

While Abrams‘ five-year, $250 million deal seems low compared to the $300 million and $400 million Ryan Murphy and Greg Berlanti received from Netflix and Warner Bros. TV, respectively, the ability to see that figure multiply is vast. (And it’s worth noting that Berlanti and Murphy’s deals were so rich because Warners and Netflix bought out the prolific producers’ profit participation in multiple shows.) Sources note senior execs at Warners’ TV side called the studio’s top producers to downplay the previously reported $500 million figure. – Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter » https://ift.tt/2ZXGyMi

Netflix Loses Title as No. 1 Bandwidth-Eating Application

In the Americas, Netflix’s share of downstream traffic for the first six months of 2019 was 12.9% — dropping from last year’s 19.1% share — putting it in third place behind HTTP media streaming and operator-delivered video. That reflects the growing consumption of other streaming options, both paid and free, with the biggest growth coming from operators’ own internet-delivered TV and video services (which accounted for 15% of downstream traffic in the region), per Sandvine. – Todd Spangler, Variety » https://trib.al/Cp8bMqq
