11:34 EDTVZSprint rises on plans to abandon two-year contracts
Sprint shares are higher this morning after the company's chief executive officer said that the carrier plans to move away from two-year contracts. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said that the company will stop offering two-year contracts by the end of 2015 in favor of a "smartphone lease" model. Sprint began offering a lease option last year, The Journal noted, and Claure said the carrier is planning to move entirely to that model by the end of the year. As part of its shift, Sprint yesterday unveiled iPhone Forever, a new leasing plan that starts at $22 per month for an iPhone. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a similar move earlier this month, Sprint rival Verizon (VZ) said it would drop phone subsidies and two-year contracts for new customers. T-Mobile (TMUS), another market rival, abandoned contracts over two years ago, leaving AT&T (T) as the only major U.S. carrier still offering to subsidize new smartphone purchases. Separately, Softbank (SFTBF), Sprint's primary stakeholder, disclosed last week that it increased its holdings in the company to approximately 80%, though the company said it does not plan for its stake in the carrier to exceed 85%. Meanwhile, a study released Tuesday by RootMetrics, an independent company that evaluates wireless networks, shows that Sprint is improving its network, having solidified third place nationally in overall performance, surpassing T-Mobile for the second consecutive six-month stretch. PRICE ACTION: Sprint is up 7c, or 1.52%, to $4.67 in morning trading.

17:12 EDTCMCSAApple delays live TV service until 2016 as licensing talks drag, Bloomberg says
Apple (AAPL) is now targeting a 2016 launch date for its live TV streaming service, reports Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the plans. Licensing discussions with network owners such as CBS (CBS), 21st Century Fox (FOX, FOXA), and Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) NBC are progressing slowly, said the sources, adding that Apple is also lacking in computer network capacity. The tech giant is pursuing a $40 per month price point for the internet TV package, a goal which is encountering pushback from TV programmers, according to the sources. Reference Link
