Report: Apple to announce Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV at WWDC

As we reported last week, the stand-off between Apple and Amazon appears to be over. Rumors suggested that, at long last, Amazon Prime Video was coming to Apple TV. According to BuzzFeed News sources, it’s a certainty, and the announcement will happen at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June. The heated battle between the two started with Amazon, which stopped selling Apple TV devices two years ago. It also banned Google’s streaming TV device, Chromecast. Worse, the company forbid third-party sellers from listing Apple TV and Chromecast on the site to avoid “customer confusion.” Apple retaliated by not allowing Amazon’s video offering,…

Apple and Amazon will reportedly put feuding aside for the Apple TV
For all there is to like about Apple TV , the set-top box does have one major flaw: no support for Amazon's widely popular Prime Video service. However, it looks like the two companies may set aside differences and address the missing feature this summer.
Apple will reportedly announce support for Amazon's premium streaming service on the Apple TV during its WWDC keynote on June 5, sources familiar with the matter tell BuzzFeed News .
This report backs up a previous rumor that Amazon Prime Video would make its way to Apple TV this summer, though BuzzFeed says the official launch date is still subject to change.
Should this new arrival come to be, it would not only address a glaring omission on Apple's set-top box, but possibly suggest a friendlier coexistence between the iPhone maker and Amazon going forward.
 The A-Team
In addition to Amazon Prime Video coming to Apple TV, today's report also claims Amazon will return the favor and resume selling Apple TVs on its website.
If true, this change comes two years after Amazon pulled the Apple TV (as well as Google Chromecasts ) from its digital shelves in favor of platforms without a competing video service, such as Rokus, game consoles and, of course, its own Amazon Fire TV .
That wasn't the first time Amazon and Apple didn't play well together, either. In 2014, Amazon stripped in-app payments from the iOS versions of several of its services — including the recently acquired ComiXology — in response to Apple demanding a 30% cut of each sale.
Even the though the ice will apparently thaw between Apple and Amazon soon, Google and Amazon may be at odds for a little bit longer as Chromecasts still have limited to zero support for Amazon Prime Video. 
All hope is not lost, however, as the Nvidia Shield — powered by Android TV — got the app this year thanks to a recent Android 7.0 Nougat update.

Report: Amazon is making an Apple TV app almost 2 years after it said it would [Updated]
Enlarge / The fourth-generation Apple TV. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)
Update: Buzzfeed's John Paczkowski, who has a good track record with Apple rumors, now reports that Apple will unveil the Amazon app at WWDC in June and that Amazon will resume selling Apple TVs. The app is still expected sometime later this summer, though the date is still subject to change.
Original story: At long last, Amazon will release an official Prime Video app for the Apple TV—at least, if a new report from Recode is to be believed . Citing "people familiar with the two companies," the report indicates that Amazon and Apple are "close to an agreement" that would bring Amazon's app to Apple's box sometime over the summer.
Currently, watching Prime Video on an Apple TV requires you to sling it from the Prime Video app on an iPhone or iPad via AirPlay, a clunky-at-best solution that doesn't always work well and (from my own personal experience) reduces video quality relative to a direct stream. Because Amazon doesn't want to give Apple a cut of any of its video revenue, the current iOS app will only play video that you've already bought on Amazon in a browser or on some other platform. The Apple TV app will presumably have the same limitations.

Amazon Video for Apple TV will reportedly be announced next month
The long wait to be able to stream TV shows and movies from Amazon on the Apple TV is nearly over. BuzzFeed News is reporting that an Amazon Video app designed for Apple’s set-top box will be announced at next month’s WWDC keynote. Recode revealed last week that Amazon and Apple were nearing an agreement that would bring to rest their years-long living room standoff. The Amazon app is likely to launch sometime this summer, though BuzzFeed News notes that the release timeframe could change.
In exchange, Amazon will resume sales of the Apple TV. The online retail giant halted sales of the device in October 2015 because Apple’s box didn’t offer any way for Prime subscribers to access Amazon’s content. (Google’s Chromecast was also kicked...

Apple will reportedly reveal Amazon Video for Apple TV next month (AAPL, AMZN)
Apple/Business Insider
The biggest hole in the Apple TV app lineup may be plugged as soon as June 5.
Apple is planning to announce that Amazon Prime Video will be available for Apple TV at its annual developer's conference, WWDC, according to a report from Buzzfeed . 
The app will become available for users later this summer, although that date hasn't been locked down, according to the report.
Amazon's Prime Video has long been missing from Apple's TV products, although there is a version available for the iPhone and iPad. Rivals such as Netflix and Hulu have been streaming videos on the Apple TV since its most recent launch. 
Last summer, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos talked about "acceptable business terms" in response to a question to why  the Apple TV wasn't on sale on Amazon.com. 
"When we sell those devices, we want our player — our Prime Video player — to be on the device, and we want it to be on the device with acceptable business terms," he said . "You can always get the player on the device. The question is, can you get it on there with acceptable business terms?"
A previous report from Recode suggested that any truce between the two companies would include a pact "at a high level," perhaps between the two tech giants' CEOs. 
It sounds as if Amazon has decided that Apple's terms are acceptable. It probably also helps that Apple recently hired the former general manager of Amazon Fire TV to head up product marketing for Apple TV .

Apple’s WWDC 2017 keynote just wrapped, where key executives Craig Federighi, Phil Schiller, and, of course, Tim Cook, took the stage to announce updates headed to iPhones, MacBooks, Apple TV, and more.
The rumors for this year’s WWDC came in the final hours leading up to the event, with hints of new hardware and, of course, software news for developers to help prep the release of consumer updates in the fall. We were also anticipating the company to finally take Siri up against the likes of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant on the hardware and smart home front — and it looks like it arrived in the form of the Apple HomePod.

255 d ago Venture Beat :: Thoughts on Apple’s 29th annual worst WWDC keynote ever
Read on Venture Beat | Share | Tweet

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is a bit like Burning Man. The favorite pastime of people who tend to go every year (or watch) is to complain about how it wasn’t as good as it used to be.
But they keep going because they believe there is always a chance that somehow they will recapture the mythical magic they imagine has been lost.
I’ll confess, I love me some snark and indulge in it quite heavily during the bloated gabfests that Apple holds each year. Apple executives treat every incremental update as if it were a religious artifact pulled directly out of the Arc of the Covenant. The skewering of such self-importance is always well deserved.
I will be forever sad that I could not be live on Twitter on Monday for the unveiling of the name “HomePod.” More like, Oh, god. How did that slip by branding quality control? Ooof. People will still buy millions, though.
But I’m less down with the sweeping post-keynote condemnations following the 30th edition of WWDC that proclaim “Apple is basically a parody of itself” and WWDC was “An Event Lacking Vision From A Company Without A Visionary.”
Because even if WWDC seems like a high-tech presentation by nerdy carnival barkers, it simply represents two important realities.
The first is that this is the beginning of a week-long conference for developers. That may be stating the obvious, but it seems to be forgotten in these post-mortem takes.
Yes, the non-stop litany and hyping of incremental advancements can become mind-numbing for those of us who want them to just roll a self-driving Apple Car on stage and send us all into wild paroxysms of euphoria. But for the overwhelming number in attendance, or watching around the world, these details matter profoundly to their livelihood. They will determine how and why they develop their applications and services around Apple’s products.
Likewise, as hardware sales overall have softened, Apple is more dependent than ever on its relationship with its developers. Of course, this has always been the key to Apple’s success. But as services, including App Store sales, have become the strongest source of Apple’s growth, the company is counting on these developers to help it get more value from its customers than ever before.
The WWDC keynote is playing perfectly to this constituency.
And that brings me to the second point. WWDC simply reflects what Apple is today: a massive, sprawling corporation with an expanding line of products that was unimaginable a decade ago. Average users and journalists dream that each product will be a game-changer hurled down like a lightning bolt to disrupt everything. If not, it considered a failure.
The Apple Watch is a good example. It is not a product for everyone. But it’s also true that to the extent a smartwatch market exists, it is dominated by Apple. Then there’s the HomePod. I can’t personally imagine ever shelling out that much for a speaker, no matter how advanced. But some people will.
And, incrementally, Apple will continue to expand its ecosystem — step by step, rather than in one explosive product. Over time, these products will work a bit better. A little bit more AI here. A few new features there. The company could expand much more rapidly if it dropped the prices on gadgets like Apple TV, Apple Watch, and the HomePod. But obviously, Apple is content with the adoption rate for now, so I don’t expect that to change any time soon.
That smells like failure to many, who see Apple as more than just a company. But I’m sorry to report that Apple is a company, and one that is managing a long-term transition from hardware to services fairly well. It still has much to prove as its moves into territory where Google and Amazon have the high ground.
Yet there’s a reason investors continue to pump Apple’s stock to all-time highs. There’s a reason that stock price has triple over the past four years, and it’s not just the growing buybacks and dividends (though they have helped.).
Apple remains king as far as developers are concerned. And their loyalty and enthusiasm will play a large role in helping Apple navigate the changing tides of technology until all the pieces are in place for the next, next, next, next big thing.

257 d ago Venture BeatApple and Amazon pause feud to play Prime Video on Apple TV
Read on Venture Beat | Share | Tweet

ANALYSIS:
Apple and Amazon, which have seen a rivalry emerge in areas like digital video and voice-activated devices, appear to be reaching something of a detente.
At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple said that Amazon’s Prime app would be coming to the Apple TV app store. “As you know, Amazon Prime Video provides a wealth of great content,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “We are so pleased to welcome Amazon to Apple TV.”
The Prime Video app, which allows Amazon’s Prime subscribers to watch movies and TV on the iPhone and iPad, will be available later this year.
Until now, Amazon has withheld its video app from the Apple TV store. In October 2015, Amazon also banned Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast from the world’s largest ecommerce outlet. Amazon claimed those devices caused “customer confusion,” suggesting that it wanted to help sales of its Fire TV and preserve its ecosystem of Prime services. Other video players, such as Roku and Xbox, remained available for sale on Amazon.
Soon after the announcement, Amazon posted a tweet about the it that said, “You asked (a lot). We listened.” Asked by a customer whether Apple TVs would return to its e-commerce store, Amazon responded with a tweet saying, “Please stay tuned!”
You asked (a lot). We listened. Amazon Prime Video is coming to the TV App and all Apple TVs this year.
— Amazon Video (@AmazonVideo) June 5, 2017
I'm sorry, we don't have any information available on this. Please stay tuned! ^SB
— Amazon Help (@AmazonHelp) June 5, 2017
Apple also announced the HomePod , a voice-activated smart speaker with an array of seven tweeters, a four-inch subwoofer, a “spatial awareness” technology that tailors sound according to its surroundings, and voice control via Siri. The HomePod will not only compete against Amazon’s popular Echo, but Google Home and Sonos’ home speakers.
Unlike Echo, the HomePod is clearly aimed at the high-end of the market. It’s priced at $349 — while Echos costs between $49.99 and $179.99 – and features higher-quality sound while offering a far narrower set of skills than the 12,000 available on the Echo.
Taken together, the announcements suggest Apple and Amazon are finding ways to cooperate, perhaps to offer a united front against Google’s offerings such as Home and Play. Apple’s vision of a network of high-end devices that operate a home-entertainment system and Amazon’s desire to use Echo to lure consumers into its Prime service may allow the two companies to maintain an alliance that preserves their core ambitions.

257 d ago Business Insider :: You will finally be able to watch all of Amazon's shows and movies on Apple TV
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Amazon
Amazon's Prime Video app is finally coming to the Apple TV "later this year," Apple announced at WWDC on Monday.
That means you'll soon be able to watch Amazon's shows and movies — from "Transparent" to "The Grand Tour" to "Manchester by the Sea" — on your Apple TV to your heart's content.
This will be welcome news for many Apple TV users, since the lack of access to Amazon's exclusive video content was a major drawback.
Beyond having a Prime Video app, Apple CEO Tim Cook indicated that Amazon's videos will also appear in Apple's unified "TV" app, which lets you easily browse content from different apps like Hulu or HBO Now in one place.
A warming
Amazon, which offers its own Fire TV streaming products, has made a habit of sparring with its competitors.
In 2015, Amazon pulled Apple TVs and Chromecasts from its store, and there is still no Prime Video app for Chromecast or Android TV. Roku does have a Prime Video app, which is one reason why I personally chose it as my primary streaming platform.
But for Apple TV users, and Google hopefuls, this respite in the Apple-Amazon feud is a promising step toward better integration of Amazon's video content with platforms run by its competitors.
This is especially useful as Amazon ramps up its spending on video this year. JPMorgan estimates the internet giant will spend a whopping $4.5 billion in 2017 .

Apple is preparing three new laptops expected to launch next month at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.
Apple could release a refreshed version of the 12-inch MacBook with a new Intel chip, according to the report.
One of the complaints about Apple's MacBook laptop is that the current processor is optimized for battery life, not for performance. A new model using a different Intel chip could make the device more attractive to a wider swath of users, possibly at the expense of battery life.
New versions of the MacBook Pro with faster Intel chips are also planned for launch.
Apple may update its least expensive laptop, the MacBook Air, with a new processor as well.
For the past few years, Apple's hasn't launched hardware at its annual developer conference, but it appears to be gearing up to do so this year — previous rumors have suggested a smart speaker or a new iPad Pro.
Last fall, Apple launched MacBook Pros with a touchscreen integrated into the keyboard. Although the company says sales of the new laptops are robust, many professional users who wanted a new high-end laptop were disappointed.

282 d ago Venture Beat :: Microsoft unveils Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers, Acer promises VR bundle for $399 ‘this holiday’
Read on Venture Beat | Share | Tweet

At its Build 2017 developer conference today, Microsoft unveiled the first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers, featuring responsive tracking and six degrees of freedom, with no markers required. A headset paired with controllers will offer experiences across creativity tools, productivity, games, and entertainment. Microsoft partners (Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo) plan to market and sell these controllers on retail shelves “this holiday.”
To get developers on board in time for the Windows 10 Falls Creators Update and these devices, Microsoft today also announced a Windows Mixed Reality dev kit. Developers can preorder an Acer VR headset for $299 ( U.S. and Canada ) or HP VR headset for $329 ( U.S. and Canada ), starting today from the Microsoft Store. They will ship “later this summer.”
Back in October, Microsoft shared that Edge in the Windows 10 Creators Update would support 3D objects, virtual reality, and mixed reality experiences . The company also revealed at the time that this functionality would not be limited to HoloLens — partners Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo will be shipping Windows 10 VR headsets, starting at $299 , later in 2017.
Now we know these headsets will work with motion controllers sold separately or bundled, depending on how the OEM decides to sell their products. Acer is promising a VR bundle (headset and motion controllers pictured up top) for $399 “this holiday,” suggesting the motion controllers on their own would cost somewhere north of $100.
“The motion controllers offer precise and responsive tracking of movement in your field of view using the sensors in your headset,” Terry Myerson, executive vice president for Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group, said in a statement. “There is no need to install hardware on the walls around you. We created the controllers as a high quality and comfortable input device with the same ease of set up and portability as our headsets.”
The key here is that — just like with the headsets — Microsoft also developed the motion controllers. The company sets the Windows Mixed Reality specifications so that apps and games work the same on all of its headsets and controllers, while partners are responsible for manufacturing and differentiating their products. In other words, Microsoft’s approach to AR and VR is not much different than its Windows strategy has been for years.

Read on TechRadar | Share | Tweet

It feels like we’ve known about Microsoft’s Mixed Reality headsets for the longest time, but at Build 2017 we’re finally getting our first look at the VR controllers.
Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers might look similar to those we’ve seen from the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, however, it doesn’t need a tracker. Rather than setting up light boxes IR cameras, sensors in the headset work in tandem with the motion controllers to deliver precise sub-millimeter control and responsive tracking of movement in the user’s field of view.
It’s a far simpler setup we appreciate and given the lower hardware requirements of Microsoft’s Mixed Reality platform, we might actually be able take to a friend’s house and share.
Forget VR, this is the best gaming mouse you can buy
Unfortunately, Microsoft decided not to demo the Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers on stage, so we won't get a good look at how well they work until we get some hands on time with them.
What’s even, more impressive about this whole setup is the Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers on stage with Acer Mixed Reality Head-Mounted Display will come bundled together for just $399 (about £310, AU$540)  – and the bundle is available for pre-order right now and will arrive this holiday.
Microsoft also announced developer versions of the Acer and HP Mixed reality headsets on their own are also up for pre-order on the Microsoft Store for $299 (about £230, AU$400) and $329 (about £250, AU$440), respectively to release this summer.

AmazonWith more and more people "cutting the cord" every day, the fight for streaming supremacy has turned quite fierce. Services like Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, and more are all competing for eyes and subscriptions that the companies hope will last a lifetime.
While it’s plain to see that Netflix is the current leader of the pack, other services have gotten more competitive as additional buyers have turned the fights for broadcasting rights into intense bidding wars, and Netflix has had to become more reliant on original programming. While Netflix keeps its viewership data private, it feels to me at least that gap in competition is closing, and since the price of these subscriptions is a fraction of what cable costs, many cord cutters are opting to add multiple streaming services to their Rokus and Apple TVs.
If you have yet to give Prime Video a try, right now is a great time to do so.
Its catalog is constantly growing and is anchored by a strong slate of original programming. Amazon has also been an big buyer on the festival circuit this year, purchasing the rights to films from Sundance and SXSW, and it is expected to put some big money down at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival as well.
To anyone who’s recently exhausted their Netflix queue, or for those simply looking to add to their media intake without re-upping their cable subscription, now is a great time to start a free trial of Amazon Prime. In addition to all the perks you get with Prime membership, including free two-day shipping, you’ll also get access to Prime Video, and all of the great content therein.
I rounded up some of the best movies and TV shows available through Prime Video this May — take a look and see what you could be watching next time you're settling in on your sofa.

After one of the most dramatic finales in the history of the Academy Awards, "Moonlight" came away with the title of Best Picture. The first film with an all-black cast, and the first LBGT film to win Best Picture, "Moonlight" tells the story of Chiron, a young black man growing up in Miami, in three parts.
"Moonlight" will be available for streaming on May 21 through Prime Video. " Manchester by the Sea " Youtube Embed:

Another emotional powerhouse, "Manchester by the Sea" is the story of Lee Chandler coming to terms with his past and attempting to get his life under control after the abrupt death of his brother. Casey Affleck won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Chandler; the film also won for Best Original Screenplay, and it was nominated for Best Picture.
It’s also worth noting here that this is one of the films Amazon picked up at Sundance last year. After its critical acclaim and success, chances are that this is a strategy Amazon will be looking to replicate again.

If you prefer a bit of action and levity to the more emotionally driven stories above, fret not — Prime Video is also adding a whole slew of James Bond titles to their catalogue this month. "Dr. No," "A View to a Kill," "For Your Eyes Only," "From Russia With Love," "Goldeneye," "Thunderball," and "Tomorrow Never Dies" will all be available for streaming starting this month.
Few film series are better to sit down and binge. If you’re in the mood to watch a dapper man save the world, you know his name.
"A View to a Kill" is available for streaming now through Prime Video. " Room " Youtube Embed:

Brie Larson was named Best Actress in 2016 for her role as Joy "Ma" Newsome, who, along with her son Jack, is held captive for years inside a small room by "Old Nick," Jack’s biological father. After a daring escape, Joy and Jack do their best to adjust to the world outside of "Room."
" Room" is available for streaming now through Prime Video. " The Man in the High Castle " Youtube Embed:

On a recent cross-country flight I binged four episodes of "The Man in the High Castle." I had dropped off the show for a little while, but after reading the book earlier this year, it was enthralling to be dropped back into the Philip K. Dick-inspired universe. Set in an alternative history in which the axis powers are victorious in World War II, the show impresses with its performances and uncanny ability to keep you watching one more episode. A great option for those looking to run through a show in a weekend.
"The Man in the High Castle" is available for streaming now through Prime Video. " Catastrophe " Youtube Embed:
http://www.youtube.com/embed/6DG3RN2Mkao
Width: 853px
Height: 480px
If anyone ever asks me what TV show they should be watching, "Catastrophe" in the first show I mention. Originally produced by the UK’s Channel4 and now an Amazon exclusive in the US, this show is funny enough for the price of a subscription alone.
Co-creators, writers, and lead actors Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan have phenomenal chemistry onscreen, Delaney as a Bostonian in the UK for business and Horgan as an Irish schoolteacher who meet-cute at a bar. After a weekend of coitus unexpectedly leads to a pregnancy, the couple decides to get married and try to make it work. Now in its third season, the show remains honest, hilarious, and heartwarming, and since each season is only six episodes, it’s an easy show to burn through on a rainy afternoon.

278 d ago Business Insider :: 42 TV shows that have been canceled
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Michael Becker / FOX
It's that time of year when the networks are each bringing down the ax on several of their series.
To make room for new shows, executives have been crunching the ratings numbers, reviewing pilots for new series, and making easy and difficult decisions about which shows have to go.
The easy cancellation decisions this year included Katherine Heigl's low-rated legal drama, "Doubt," by CBS. Then there was NBC and DC's critically panned and low-rated comedy experiment, "Powerless."
Among the tougher cuts this year was Fox's decision to cancel the low-rated but critically acclaimed "Pitch," the story of a young woman who breaks into Major League Baseball as a pitcher. In the same vein, Amazon canceled its show "Good Girls Revolt," about the women who paved the way for today's female journalists. HBO also couldn't hang on to "The Leftovers," which was beloved by critics and fans but couldn't pull in the necessary ratings.
And then you have the shows that had run their natural course, such as "Orphan Black," "Girls," "The Vampire Diaries," "Bloodline," and "Masters of Sex."
Here are all the broadcast shows that were canceled and a selection of canceled shows on the streaming and cable networks:
"2 Broke Girls" (CBS) Darren Michaels/Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.
"American Crime" (ABC) ABC/Nicole Wilder
"APB" (Fox) Chuck Hodes / FOX

284 d ago Time :: The Internet Is Reimagining Game of Thrones as Other TV Shows and It’s Amazing
Read on Time | Share | Tweet


With HBO currently in the market for Game of Thrones spinoff ideas , the Internet has begun making suggestions for ways to merge the world of Westeros with several other popular TV universes.
After Comedy Central’s Midnight launched the hashtag #GameofThronesTVShows Monday night — with the game show’s contestants proposing “Laverne & Shirley & Dragons” and “Killmore Girls” — viewers took to Twitter to create their own clever mashups.
There were submissions that revived cancelled classics, “ The Westeros Wing ” and “ Buffy the Kingslayer ,” brought back old sitcoms, “ Married… To Children ” and “ How I Met Your Mother Of Dragons ,” and even dipped into the world of reality TV, “ Say Yes to the Red Wedding Dress ” and “ Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares .”
See a selection of the best ideas below.

288 d ago The VergeFacebook is reportedly working to debut premium TV shows next month
Read on The Verge | Share | Tweet

Facebook is reportedly closer than expected to making a big push into television. The company is developing around 24 shows and plans to premiere them in mid-June, according to a big new report from Business Insider . There will apparently be two tiers of show: a small number of longer, prestige shows on the order of House of Cards, and more digestible 5- to 10-minute shows that can be added to the Facebook app’s video tab daily.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in February that he wanted users to come to the service for “episodic content.” It’s part of a major initiative at the company to begin siphoning away some of the billions of dollars that are spent on television advertising ever year — a major growth opportunity for Facebook,...

288 d ago Business Insider :: Facebook wants to launch its big attack on TV next month — here's what we know (FB)
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

AP
Facebook has kicked its push for TV-like shows into high gear and is aiming to premiere its slate of programming in mid-June, multiple people familiar with the plans told Business Insider.
Facebook plans to have about two dozen shows for this initial push and has greenlit multiple shows for production, according to people familiar with the discussions. They said the social network had been looking for shows in two distinct tiers: a marquee tier for a few longer, big-budget shows that would feel at home on TV, and a lower tier for shorter, less expensive shows of about five to 10 minutes that would refresh every 24 hours.
The new video initiative means Facebook would play a much more hands-on role in controlling the content that appears on its social network with nearly 2 billion members — and it comes as companies like Amazon, YouTube, and Snap are locked in an arms race to secure premium video programming.
Facebook sees high-quality, scripted video as an important feature to retain users, particularly a younger demographic that is increasingly flocking to rival Snapchat, as well as a means to rake in brand advertising dollars traditionally reserved for traditional TV.
Whether Facebook's users will embrace such programming is unclear. The short video clips that autoplay in Facebook's News Feed have been a success for most publishers, but there's no guarantee that consumers will begin to think of Facebook as a destination for watching longer-form shows.
Facebook declined to comment for this story.

The effort to snag exclusive shows is being led by CollegeHumor cofounder Ricky Van Veen, whom Facebook hired in December to be its global creative strategy chief.
His small team has been meeting with production companies and hearing pitches for episodic shows five to 30 minutes long that would live in a revamped version of Facebook's video tab.
Multiple people mentioned Netflix's "House of Cards" as a representation of the caliber of shows that have been pitched to Facebook for its higher tier, while another cited "Scandal" as an example. As for the lower tier, Facebook is looking for production budgets that fall somewhere between TV and digital shows, similar to the shows on Verizon's go90 service , one person said.
One show Facebook has greenlit is a virtual-reality dating show from Conde Nast Entertainment in which people go on first dates in VR before they meet in real life, according to one person who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. At Conde Nast's NewFront presentation on Tuesday, the company confirmed that it had a new video project with Facebook, but didn't give details. 
Facebook has tapped A-list celebrities to star in some of the shows, according to multiple people briefed on the plans. One agency has already attached an A-list Hollywood star to a show, according to a person familiar with the talks.
While Facebook is interested in a range of content, one genre it's intensely targeting is teen-centric shows.
"They are obsessed with Snapchat," one person said. Another said Facebook was targeting younger users "to expand the audience demo."
Snap has been actively pursuing show deals with many of the same of the same companies as Facebook for its app's Discover section.
"They are definitely in a race right now," a third person said.
Another area Facebook is looking closely at is sports, and the company has reportedly talked with MLB .
"Sports is probably something that we'll want to try at some point," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on a recent earnings call.
One person said the mid-June launch date could be pushed back. Another said Facebook initially planned to unveil its shows around its developer conference in mid-April but decided to debut in time for the Cannes Lions advertising festival, which starts June 17.
The ad play
The new video strategy pits Facebook directly against YouTube, which on Thursday announced it would fund a slate of original shows starring big names like Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Hart, and Katy Perry. The new shows will be supported by ads and available for anyone to watch, instead of living in YouTube's $10-a-month subscription service.
FilmMagic for YouTube"Five years ago, 85% of all original series were ad-supported," Robert Kyncl, YouTube's business chief, said at an event on Thursday of the company's strategy. "This year, that number has fallen to just over two-thirds. And with significantly more content coming to subscription services, that shift is accelerating. So we see these shows as a way for us to partner with [advertisers] to buck this trend."
Facebook's thinking seems in line with YouTube's, as Facebook's primary means of monetizing its original shows will be through ads in the middle of the video, known as mid-roll ads, multiple people said. The social network has been testing the ads for months with a handful of publishers in live and recorded videos but hasn't made the format widely available.
In discussions with partners, Facebook executives have repeatedly said they eventually want to move toward a revenue-sharing model for scripted shows through mid-roll ads. To start, Facebook is purchasing the rights to some shows upfront with plans to recoup its costs through mid-roll ads later.
Living-room screens
A concern among partners is that Facebook executives have yet to explain why people would seek out longer shows in the Facebook app's video tab.
"Facebook hasn't figured it out," one partner said.
"That's a needle they have to thread," another person said.
Business InsiderFacebook released a standalone video app for the Apple TV and other set-top boxes in March that could presumably also be used to feature its original shows, the people said.
"The goal is going to be creating some anchor content initially that helps people learn that going to the video tab — that that's a great destination where they can explore and come to Facebook with the intent to watch the videos that they want," Zuckerberg said during Facebook's last earnings call with investors. "And then the long-term goal is actually not to be paying for specific content like that, but doing a revenue share model once the whole economy around video on Facebook is built up."

287 d ago TechRadar :: Facebook's original shows could be arriving next month
Read on TechRadar | Share | Tweet

Facebook's way beyond being just a social network these days, with ongoing projects in virtual reality , artificial intelligence and much more. If reports are to be believed, Mark Zuckerberg's empire will very soon be expanding into original video shows too.
According to Business Insider , Facebook is readying a slate of "TV-like shows" that are going to hit the web sometime in June. About two dozen shows are going to feature in the first push of content with more programs following in the future.
Apparently we'll see both big-budget, full-length shows as well as shorter 5-10 minute videos more like the plethora of content already on YouTube. These shorter programs are tipped to refresh every day.
Show me the money
The idea is to give Facebook more control over the video on its platform and of course to keep users engaged - in recent years we've seen Netflix , Hulu , Google , Snapchat and even Apple work on their own original programming to attract more eyeballs. Video ads could also be run alongside the shows.
A virtual reality dating show is one of the programs coming your way in June, the report says, with a lot of teen-centric content on the agenda too - apparently Facebook is still obsessed with stealing youngsters away from Snapchat . Sports is another area that Facebook is apparently exploring.
All this comes from anonymous people "familiar with the plans" that Facebook has, so it's not official yet, and there are hints that the launch date could be pushed back. Better get all of your binge-watching done now though, just in case.

Citing sources familiar with the discussions, the report goes on to say that Facebook will focus on releasing two kinds of shows: longer, more traditional TV-style scripted shows with bigger budgets, and shorter shows that will be updated daily.  Read more...

288 d ago Re/codeIt looks like Amazon’s Video app is finally coming to Apple TV this summer
Read on Re/code | Share | Tweet

Jeff Bezos and Tim Cook bury the hatchet.
Amazon and Apple may have reached a truce.
The tech giants, who are increasingly competing for customers’ time, eyeballs and money, are close to an agreement to bring an Amazon video app to Apple’s Apple TV set-top box, according to people familiar with the two companies.
Amazon employees expect the app to show up on Apple’s hardware in the third quarter of the year.
That move would allow Amazon Prime Video subscribers to easily watch TV shows and movies from the service using Apple TV.
For the past few years, Amazon subscribers have only been able to watch their shows on Apple TV using Apple’s comparatively cumbersome Airplay system, which involves connecting another Apple product, like an iPhone, to an Apple TV using a Wi-Fi connection.
We don’t know whether the agreement between the two companies means that they have also settled other disputes involving their rival video ambitions.
Amazon, for instance, stopped selling Apple TV boxes on its online store in the fall of 2015 . And while an Amazon video app exists for Apple iOS devices, it’s a crippled version of the app, one that doesn’t allow users to buy or rent individual programs without visiting Amazon first.
Reps from Apple and Amazon declined to comment.
It’s unclear what got the two companies to reach an agreement, though some industry observers suggest that any pact would have been worked out, at a high level, by CEOs Tim Cook and Jeff Bezos.
Both Apple and Amazon want to be the primary sources of entertainment in their customers’ homes, and in some cases the two offer products that compete directly with each other.
Amazon, for instance, sells Fire TV sticks and boxes that bring video to TV sets, just like Apple TV boxes do. Other products are more complementary, at least for now. Apple has yet to launch a streaming video service like Amazon provides via its Prime subscription offering.
At last year’s Code Conference , Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wouldn’t go into detail about the dispute between the two companies, telling the audience that “private business discussions should remain private.”
But Bezos did talk a bit about the reason Amazon stopped selling Apple TVs . He said he didn’t want his customers to buy a device that wasn’t compatible with Amazon’s video app:
“We want our player, our Prime Video player, to be on the device, and we want it to be on the device with acceptable business terms. And so, you can always get the player on the device; the question is can you do so with acceptable business terms. And if you can’t, then we don't want to sell it to our customers, because they’re going to be buying it thinking they can watch Prime Video and then they’re going to be disappointed. And they’re going to return it.”
The deal talks come at a time when Amazon’s video business has become increasingly important to Prime, the $99 annual membership that fuels the company’s dominance in online retail.
“We’ve been able to monitor the people who use Prime Video ... they renew [Prime memberships] at higher rates and they convert from free trial at higher rates,” Bezos said during the same Code Conference interview.
“When we win a Golden Globe,” he added, “it helps us sell more shoes.”

Amazon’s Prime Video TV service may be available on Apple TV later this year, according a report by Recode. For those not keeping track, Amazon hasn’t exactly had a smooth relationship with some of its competition in the video streaming space. The company’s Prime Video service is not available on Apple TV or most Android TV devices, and the company has ignored Google Cast in lieu of its own Fire-branded streamers. In fact the feud runs so deep that Amazon removed all Apple TV and Chromecast listings from its store in late 2015. It gave the lame excuse that it would…
