Netflix extends deal for animation films with Universal Pictures

Published

on

(Reuters) – Netflix Inc and Comcast Corp’s Universal Pictures are extending a multi-year exclusive rights deal in the United States for animated film franchises such as “Minions” and “Puss in Boots”, the streaming giant said on Tuesday.

Netflix’s rights to stream these popular movies, which are made by Universal’s DreamWorks Animation studios, will begin after a four-month window on Peacock, Comcast’s in-house streaming service.

Netflix currently streams movies including “Despicable Me” and “The Grinch” from Universal’s Illumination studios.

The streaming company added it would license the rights to Universal’s full-animated and live-action slate of films about four years after their release as well as the rights to other select titles.

The deal should help Netflix keep the kids subscriber base hooked and comes at a time when studios such as Disney are holding back on selling rights to streamers to boost their own platforms.

Comcast last week said that Universal’s new movies would exclusively go to Peacock no later than four months after they debut in theaters.

Published

on

MADRID (Reuters) – British telecom operator Vodafone said on Wednesday it had partnered with information technology firm Unisys to launch ‘Vodafone Digital Factory’ to boost its range of IT services as businesses digitise their activity amid the pandemic.

Vodafone hopes to strengthen its portfolio of specialised digital tools for companies looking to integrate their systems or develop specific software for their platforms, said business general manager Daniel Jimenez.

Unisys will help Vodafone’s corporate clients integrate and develop technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality or blockchain, Ana Rubia, general manager of Unisys Spain, said in a statement.

Mobile and broadband firms across Europe, struggling with shrinking profit and high costs to meet next-generation connectivity demands, have tried to extract value from their IT, cloud, big data and IoT units amid the acceleration of use cases for such services during the pandemic.

After Flipkart, Amazon files appeal at India’s Supreme Court in antitrust probe

Published

on

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc on Wednesday filed an appeal with India’s top court against a state court’s order that allowed an antitrust probe against the U.S. firm and Walmart’s Flipkart to continue, according to source and court listings.

A court in south India last week dismissed cases filed by Amazon and Flipkart which sought to quash the Competition Commission of India’s (CCI) 2020 investigation on accusations that the companies circumvent Indian law by creating complex business structures.

The companies have denied wrongdoing, but the state court in Karnataka said “they should not feel shy in facing an inquiry.”

Details of Amazon’s plea were not immediately clear. The Supreme Court website showed the case listing of an appeal, without giving further details.

Flipkart challenged the decision in the Supreme Court on Tuesday and has requested a restraint on the CCI after the watchdog asked 32 “sensitive” questions in mid July, in what the firm called an “invasive” investigation.
