On Basketball: This first round of playoffs sorely lacks playoff drama

Inquirer Breaking News - 1 hour 35 min ago
ORLANDO, Florida --- If there was a silver lining for Indiana fans after the Pacers were the first team to be bounced from the 2019 NBA playoffs, it's this: They won't have to watch any more first-round games. For that, they should be thankful. Drama is in very short supply so far in these playoffs. Close games? Few and far between (more on this later). Ratings? They're down double-digit percentages from last year, a massive hit that suggests casual fans aren't watching if LeBron James --- out of the playoffs for the first time since 2005 --- isn't playing. Tickets? There were seats on the secondary market available for Monday's Milwaukee-Detroit game for as little as $18. T...

Inquirer Breaking News - 2 hours 3 min ago

Will Netflix eventually monetize its user data?

Inquirer Breaking News - 2 hours 12 min ago
  BOSTON -- Even in the wake of a recent mixed earning report and volatile stock prices, Netflix remains the media success story of the decade. The company, whose user base has grown rapidly, now boasts almost 150 million global subscribers. But as someone who studies the television industry, I've always wondered how Netflix can provide so much unlimited ad-free content for such a low monthly rate, which currently averages around US$14. After all, didn't MoviePass just fall apart using a similar model of offering ad-free content for a monthly subscription fee? And Netflix is burning through cash, with negative cash flow of $3 billion in 2018 alone. What if we're look...
