Amazon (AMZN), Cisco (CSCO), Google (GOOG), Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT), Mozilla and Netflix (NFLX) announced the formation of the Alliance for Open Media, "an open-source project that will develop next-generation media formats, codecs and technologies in the public interest."

The initial project will create a new, open royalty-free video codec specification based on the contributions of members, said the group.

17:29 EDTGOOGGoogle cancelled location-tracking ad project, Fortune says
Earlier this year, Google (GOOG) cancelled a project that aimed to track Google Maps users and send notifications to their phones after entering the vicinity of certain retailers, allowing potential partners such as Starbucks (SBUX) or Walgreens (WBA) to automatically highlight loyalty programs or discounts when a customer entered the store, reports Fortune, citing people familiar with the project. The project, known as "Google Here," was shut down due to concerns of being overly invasive as well as doubts about whether retailers were interested in the project, said the report. Note that on June 8, Facebook (FB) expanded its test of business "beacons," allowing retail partners to "beam" information to customers via in-store devices. Reference Link

13:06 EDTNFLX, TWX, AMZNNetflix 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%.

JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani points out that this Friday at midnight marks the global launch of new Star Wars merchandise ahead of the first Star Wars film in a decade on December 18. The analyst believes the launch has the potential to "meaningfully accelerate" Disney's Consumer Products division's revenue and profit growth.
