HBO nixes idea of Netflix partnership

(Reuters) - Consumers who dream of watching HBO hits like “The Sopranos” or “Game of Thrones” by streaming to TVs using their Netflix accounts shouldn’t hold their breath.

Netflix Inc CEO Reed Hastings raised the tantalizing possibility on Tuesday that his video rental company could partner with HBO, with which his company has jostled in the past, as it has with other television networks that supply programming.

HBO rushed to pour cold water on the possibilities that the Netflix CEO raised in a letter to shareholders, making it clear it had no intentions of making a deal with Hastings, who often singles out HBO as a chief competitor.

"We are not in discussions and have no plans to work with Netflix," HBO spokesman Jeff Cusson said.

HBO offers current and past programs such as “Sex in the City” and “Boardwalk Empire” to its subscribers through HBO Go, an on-demand service available on computers, tablets and mobile phones.

Earlier this year, the premium cable channel, owned by Time Warner Inc, refused to sell to Netflix DVDs of “True Blood” and its other shows at the wholesale price it offers to retail stores.

Hastings has sought to downplay the rivalry with HBO, which sees Netflix’s service that streams movies and TV shows to TVs and other mobile devices as a competitor for the service it provides to cable subscribers.

"While we compete for content and viewing time with HBO, it is also possible we will find opportunities to work together - just as we do with other networks," Hastings and Chief Financial Officer David Wells said in their letter.

Hastings did not say whether Netflix would license HBO’s programming or co-finance future shows.

The reference to HBO, he told analysts in a conference call after Netflix announced its earnings, was meant to highlight that “we’re just another network, and then when you have multiple networks, they often find ways of working together.”

No agreement with HBO is in the works, Hastings said in an interview.

"There is no current deal on the table," he said.

AMC Will Stream The Season Premiere Of ‘Breaking Bad’ On Its Website For Dish Subscribers

Somewhat lost in the recent DirecTV/Viacom shuffle is the fact that AMC is still knee-deep in their own battle over carriage rates, with the network currently blacked out for all Dish Network subscribers. Considering the fifth and final season of Breaking Bad debuts in less than a week, some Dish Network subscribers are justifiably freaking the hell out about it. To combat this, and in no way whatsoever try to endear themselves to subscribers in an attempt to win the public relations battle in a heated negotiation, AMC has announcedthat they will stream this Sunday’s season premiere for free on their website.

Here’s the press release from AMC:

AMC wants its loyal DISH viewers to experience the excitement of the Breaking Bad premiere at the same time as their friends and neighbors, and we want to give DISH customers an extra week to switch providers so they can enjoy the rest of the season.

To recap the day’s events: Viacom is fighting with DirecTV so they yanked all their programs off the Internet, and AMC is fighting with Dish so they’re putting one of their most popular programs ON the Internet. I’ll tell you what, if all these networks and providers keep fighting like children and dragging the Internet into the middle of it, I’m afraid it might start acting out for attention. Smoking cigarettes, being disruptive in class, you know how it goes.

Look, I … I wasn’t going to tell you this, but… I was walking behind the Internet the other day, and a flier for amateur night at The Landing Strip fell out of its backpack. It’s not for another two weeks, and I don’t know if the Internet is just joking around here, but, I mean, I really think everyone needs to take this seriously and evaluate what they’re doing. This is the Internet’s future we’re talking about.
