Netflix’s Ted Sarandos Talks Movie Business, Third Season of ‘House of Cards’

Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos caused a little bit of a stir this weekend with his remarks during a keynote presentation at the Film Independent Forum in Los Angeles. Specifically, Sarandos criticized movie theater owners for stifling innovation — and thus hurting the movie business in general — by making it difficult for studios to distribute big-budget movies on Netflix the same day they premiere in theaters.

Opinions & Analysis

FX, Turner, and Netflix Face Off in a Battle of the Binge

Most networks only have rights to stream the last five episodes of their series on their websites and VOD, and Netflix usually doesn’t post the whole season until a few weeks before the next season begins. But Vulture has learned that a couple of cable’s biggest programming powerhouses, FX and Turner, are fighting back on this industry standard, telling TV studios that they will not buy any new show unless it comes with the right to keep streaming every episode in a current season until it ends.
