13:06 EDTTWXNetflix dives as Apple reportedly explores original programming
Shares of streaming video giant Netflix (NFLX) are underperforming a down market today after a Variety report that said Apple (AAPL) is exploring an entry into the original programming business. Amazon (AMZN) also said it expanded Prime Video downloads to the iOS and Android platforms. WHAT'S NEW: According to the Variety report, Apple recently held preliminary discussions with Hollywood executives to measure their interest in "spearheading" a move into entertainment content. Exclusive content has been an integral part of Netflix's success with programming such as House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black. Amazon and Time Warner's (TWX) HBO, which recently launched a streaming-only version of its service, are also counting on exclusive content. According to Variety, the extent of Apple's ambitions vary, according to sources, with some saying the plan is to create long-form content and compete directly with Netflix while other sources say that Apple's efforts are more of a "flirtation." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Netflix announced this week that it will not renew its agreement with Epix, which allowed Netflix to stream movies released on the cable movie channel. Netflix noted that the Epix movies are widely available on cable and other subscription platforms at the same time as they are on Netflix. The streaming video giant said in a blog post that it knows some subscribers will be disappointed by the end of Epix movies but added that its goal "is to provide great movies and TV series for all tastes, that are only available on Netflix." Also noteworthy was the announcement by Amazon today that it will now allow Prime members to download movies and TV episodes, including Amazon Original Series, to iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets for offline viewing, at no additional charge. The company noted that Amazon Video is the only online subscription streaming video service that enables downloads of titles, meaning unlike other subscription streaming services such as Netflix, Prime members can enjoy movies and TV shows as part of their membership even when they don't have an internet connection. ANALYST TAKE: In a note to investors this morning, BofA/Merrill analyst Nat Schindler raised his price target on Netflix shares to $133 from $121 following reports the company will officially launch in Japan on September 2 and recently raised prices in Europe. The analyst, which maintains his Buy rating on shares, also pointed out that Netflix is in an agreement with Softbank (SFTBF), a leader in Japan's telecom and internet space. The Softbank partnership will bolster subscriber growth through pre-installed Netflix apps on Softbank phones, automatic subscription payments through Softbank's payment system, and in-store signups and marketing. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Netflix are underperforming a weak market and are down 8.15% to $105.65, while Apple and Amazon are both down over 2%.

17:13 EDTTWX'Compton' leads again as 'We Are Your Friends' stumbles at box office
Hip hop biopic "Straight Outta Compton" continued its domestic box office dominance while Christian drama "War Room" outpaced analyst estimates and electronic dance flick "We Are Your Friends" fizzled. U.S. WEEKEND LEADER: Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) subsidiary Universal's "Straight Outta Compton" grossed $13.2M domestically for the weekend of August 30, securing the top box office spot for a third consecutive week. In a record-breaking performance for musical biopics, the gangster rap film has earned $134.1M in the U.S. since opening earlier this month. Though Warner Bros.' (TWX) "We Are Your Friends" was predicted to challenge "Compton" with sales ranging $8M-$10M, the Zac Efron-led electronic music film flopped at just $1.8M. BOX OFFICE RUNNERS-UP: Produced with an estimated budget of $3M, Sony's (SNE) faith-based drama "War Room" debuted at $11M against expectations for $5M-$8.5M after leading in advance ticket sales. Viacom (VIA, VIAB) subsidiary Paramount's "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation" relinquished its grip on second place with an $8.3M gross for the weekend, while Weinstein Company's action thriller "No Escape" opened in fourth place at $8.29M. "Sinister 2" from Comcast subsidiary Focus Features rounded out this weekend's Top 5 at $4.7M.
