Netflix Misses Q3 U.S. Subscriber Forecast, Citing Price Hike

Netflix gained 517,000 U.S. subscribers during the company’s third fiscal quarter, though the streaming service’s subscriber gains were slightly below expectations. In a letter to shareholders, the company outlined a reversal of fortunes from its Q2 report, where the company reported a loss of 126,000 U.S. subscribers.

However, the company’s Q3 gains were nonetheless lower than its previous forecast of around 800,000 domestic net adds, and Netflix cited its recent price hikes as the reason its domestic subscriber growth has been slow in 2019.

“Since our U.S. price increase earlier this year, retention has not yet fully returned on a sustained basis to pre-price-change levels, which has led to slower U.S. membership growth,” the company said in its Wednesday letter to shareholders.”

It is possible that Netflix’s recent price increase could be a problem point for the company in the months ahead, as new streaming services such as Disney+,

Not to be outdone, the other two editors are going rogue in predicting victories for Brian Cox (“Succession”) and Steve Carell (“The Morning Show”).

Convicted Pedophile Won’t Profit Off Of His Song Used In Joker

Joker is smashing all sorts of box office records on its way to awards season, but the film’s rise to prominence hasn’t come without its fair share of controversies. The most recent scandal involves the use of a song that was performed by a convicted pedophile. People feared that the creep known as Gary Glitter would be profiting off of the movie’s use of his popular track but thankfully, we now know that the criminal won’t be making a dime.

A representative from Snapper Music recently released a statement saying the following:

“Gary Glitter does not get paid. We’ve had no contact with him.”

Universal Media Publishing, who holds the United States’ rights to the song in question, also echoed the sentiment by saying:

Jojo Rabbit's Stephen Merchant on why U.S. satire has "lost its nerve"

Given that Stephen Merchant is the co-creator of The Office, as well as the co-writer of both Extras and Life’s Too Short, it’s a fair assumption that he knows a little bit about comedy.

Mallika Dua: Very easy to get typecast in the industry

Actress Mallika Dua feels it is very easy to get pigeonholed in the industry, and says she wants to explore genres beyond comedy.

"I want to branch out beyond comedy. It is very easy to get typecast in this industry where so many people are eyeing for the same part," Mallika told Ians.

"You don't even come in the consideration set as there is a genre you are known for. I personally would like to do some darker roles, maybe something negative, something that does not require me to crack a joke and keep a smile constantly," she added.

In the past, Mallika has featured in "Midnight Misadventures with Mallika Dua" and "The Trip". She is also seen in Hotstar Specials' "The Office -- Season 2" as Kitty Kataria.

Biff Review: ‘The Fan Connection’ is a Love Letter to Buffalo’s Rabid Fandom

Buffalo sports fans are die-hard. Go to most big cities across America and you’ll find a Queen City backers’ bar of ex-pats communing to enjoy the teams they grew up watching beside their parents. It doesn’t take long for the electricity and excitement to flood back upon returning home either whether for new job opportunities or a weekend vacation—something Mary Wall discovered by watching her hometown Sabres’ wild NHL playoff run in 2006 while on her two-month hiatus from working as a long-time production assistant on “The Office.” Everyone came together as one to cheer on the blue and gold, driving to the airport to thank the players after a heart-breaking game seven defeat to the eventual Stanley Cup champions, the Carolina Hurricanes.

It therefore made sense for her to spend a full season in Buffalo to follow around a few fans as they went about their daily

Netflix Shares Rise On Goldman Sachs Thumbs-Up; Still The “Primary Streaming Choice” – Update

  • Deadline
Updated with closing price. Netflix stock, which has slumped in recent months, perked up Thursday as analysts gave a vote of confidence in the streaming giant’s prospects.

Shares closed at $280.48, their highest level in three weeks and up nearly 5% for the day. After a discouraging second-quarter earnings report in July, the stock has retreated and has lost more than 10% of its value in 2019 to date.

Netflix will report its third-quarter financial results on October 16, with those figures capturing a period that includes blockbusters like the third season of Stranger Things.

Goldman Sachs remains upbeat about the company, even though it cut its 12-month price target on the stock to $360 from $420. It expects the company to hit its own estimate of 7 million more global subscribers. “Netflix’s incremental net subscriber additions have grown continuously despite significant competitive pressure,” Goldman analyst Heath Terry wrote in a note to clients Thursday. “We

Mindy Kaling Hits Back at TV Academy For Attempted Emmys Snub: "I Was Singled Out"

Mindy Kaling Hits Back at TV Academy For Attempted Emmys Snub:
Though she's a Hollywood powerhouse all on her own, Mindy Kaling is practically synonymous with the hit series she helped bring to fame, The Office. Not only did she bring viewers the iconic character of Kelly Kapoor, but she also served as writer, executive producer, and director for several seasons of the NBC sitcom. But according to the Four Weddings and a Funeral producer, there was a time when she had to fight to get recognized for her work - and she's still fighting to get the truth out.

In a recent interview with Elle, Kaling recounted a "humiliating" experience after The Office was nominated for an Emmy for outstanding comedy series in 2007. The Television Academy told Kaling that there were too many producers credited and she - the sole woman and person of color - would be cut from the list. Kaling explained that to be included, she had to jump through some hoops,
