In mid-October, analysts at UBS said they polled 1,000 consumers and 86% said they had heard of Disney+.In addition, 44% said they were “likely” to subscribe — a figure that put Disney+ ahead of Disney’s internal forecasts from April of 20 million to 30 million U.S. subscribers by 2024.(Disney also expects 60 to 90 million worldwide subscribers by that time.)The firm claims to be able to view data about consumer searches, clicks and transactions, including those behind walled gardens, like Amazon, Netflix, Google and others.It uses a statistical calibration from the panel to represent the U.S. internet population at large.Its data for Disney+ is limited to the U.S. and only includes mobile web and desktop purchases during the pre-sale time frame of August 25 through October 14.

If so, you’ve probably got questions.The name means “six” in Japanese because Roku is the sixth company launched by the founder, Anthony Wood.Unlike home theater PCs, game consoles, or other internet-connected devices, Roku streaming media players have always focused on providing users with a dead-simple way to access streaming video and audio content on their TVs.Most recently, the Roku OS has been built-in to budget-friendly “smart” soundbars from Roku and Onn.This includes a main menu on the left, and a series of large graphic rectangles on the right laid out in an easy-to-read grid pattern.These rectangles, which will include items like Netflix, YouTube, The Roku Channel, and others are known as “channels.” Channels behave just like apps on your smartphone — in fact, they are apps but because Roku is so TV-centric, it calls them channels because you watch them.
Halloween is no longer just about severed limbs and haunted houses.While you’ll find plenty of modern horror classics streaming now, it’s too early to find 2019 hits like Midsommar and Annabelle Comes Home, though you can rent or buy both through Amazon Prime Video.And if you’re the Halloween year-round kind of person, there’s also the dedicated horror-only streaming service Shudder, which is the only place you can see the acclaimed Mexican sensation Tigers Are Not Afraid.But if you’ve spent all your money on Halloween candy, here are our picks for the best modern horror movies to stream now.In Robert Eggers’ Colonial-era film, getting away from organized religion only leads a family into the terrors of the new world they’ve settled.“Groundhog Day, but make it horror” is the premise of this supernatural slasher that’s driven by the strength of Jessica Rothe’s performance as the young woman whose life is already hard enough without adding death into the mix.
This week saw intense media coverage of Amazon’s disappointing earnings, which tended to focus more on whether Jeff Bezos would lose his position as the richest man in the world, rather than on the fundamentals of the business.While it is tempting to focus on the negative aspects like sky-rocketing shipping costs or decreasing profit margins, a couple of metrics are clearly going in the right direction: advertising and streaming.The network effects of the Amazon business model have long been lauded as proof of the brilliance of Bezos’ strategy, and we are now seeing these same forces play out in the nearly trillion dollar advertising industry.There are three main races unfolding in the streaming wars — content, distribution, and ad-supported TV — and Amazon is one of the only major players that has a horse in all three.In terms of content, Amazon has the breadth and depth of Netflix, Disney, and Apple and stands as one of the players planning to inject billions of dollars into creating premium, original content that will draw people to its service.With 47 Emmy nominations this past year, and shows like Fleabag, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and others breaking into the mainstream – including the newest hit show, The Boys (more than 8 million viewers consumed the entire season in less than a week) – Amazon has proven it has the content chops to compete and draw in audiences.

There's a telling moment in Modern Love, the new anthology series from Amazon Prime Video.A journalist (Catherine Keener) asks a dating app founder (Dev Patel) if he's ever been in love.It's fitting given that Modern Love is an adaption of The New York Times column of the same name, which began in 2004 and continues to this day.In the print version, readers submit neatly distilled first-person essays about the ways their lives and loves intersect with others, whether it's romantic, familial, friendly or just plain random.In "Rallying to keep the game alive," (directed by Catastrophe's Sharon Horgan), a couple in counseling played by Fey and Slattery struggle to like and even function with each other after years of marriage and two kids.Having different directors and writers, not all entries are even.
