Netflix to Launch Its Paris Office on Jan. 17

As previously announced, the French outpost won’t be dedicated to production as in Spain, where Netflix bowed its first European production hub, but it will be staffed with executives working across several fields, including production, acquisition, and marketing. The 27,000-square-foot office will spread over three floors and will be located in the heart of Paris, in a chic and hip neighborhood in the city’s 9th arrondissement. – Elsa Keslassy, Variety » https://trib.al/yot6rBf

PlayStation 4 Is the Most Popular Pornhub Console

[As] for which gaming console gets the most Pornhub use, the PlayStation 4 is the big winner. 51.5 percent, just over half of all game console traffic, comes from PlayStation 4. The Xbox One follows with 34.7 percent. At first we just figured this reflected sheer numbers and tech realities. The PlayStation 4 has the advantage of course because there are just way more of them out there. And the similarly popular Nintendo Switch doesn’t have a web browser so it can’t access Pornhub at all. However, the extremely dead Sony handheld the PlayStation Vita somehow comes in third with 9.1 percent. So maybe there just is something special about porn and PlayStation. – Jordan Minor, Geek.com » https://ift.tt/2PiU3zi

The first monthly activity report from Apptopia on Disney + engagement shows that despite the very quick rise of Disney+ downloads across mobile and connected TV platforms Netflix and established companies are not loosing any steam. On the other hand Disney is seeing a big impact on its other streaming services Hulu and ESPN+. While Disney + has been downloaded 22 million times since the service launched the other two services have seen dramatic growth as it appears the rising tide or in this case the sudden tsunami has led to s major surge in downloads of Hulu (46%) and ESPN+ (34%) in the month since the launch of Disney+. – Ryan Downey, The Streaming Advisor » https://ift.tt/2qPEEgk

Short-form streaming originals to boom

The study also showed that Facebook currently has the most short-form originals with a focus on news and current affairs, including daily broadcast news programme, Fox News Update. Short-form was also seen to be popular in Asia, and Hong Kong’s Viu came in second globally for the volume of short-form originals currently on their platform, most of which were reality or entertainment. SVOD leader Netflix has opted for another approach, preferring scripted comedies such as dramedy Special, sketch comedy series I Think You Should Leave, and coming of age comedy Bonding. – Joseph O’Halloran, Rapid TV News » https://ift.tt/2t9bGc5 [photo: Facebook Watch logo]
