Netflixers, you might have to wait longer for that disc of The Karate Kid than you'd originally thought - The mail-order rental company has a new deal with Sony Pictures that will mean a 28 day window between DVD release and rental availability on some movies.
Officially unveiled today at Apple's upfront presentation, the second-generation Apple TV will allow users to stream content from Netflix and iTunes, and rent HD television series from ABC and Fox for just 99 cents. The new version of the device, priced at $99, will be released late this month.
Netflix and Epix have officially confirmed their long-rumored deal that will give the DVD and online streaming company exclusive online rights to movies from Paramount, MGM and Lionsgate, starting next month.
Relativity Media - the company behind this summer's Robin Hood, Get Him To The Greek and Grown Ups - has signed a deal with Netflix that may be about to turn the latter company's streaming movie service into a big deal.
