Netflix is once again raising its prices —but what will the move do to the competitive streaming landscape?
Interest in the young streaming service is suspiciously weak, even among consumers who can get it for free.
Sony Corp is in final talks with AT&T to acquire U.S. animation-streaming service Crunchyroll in a deal worth more than 100 billion yen ($957 million), the Nikkei business daily reported on Friday. The acquisition would give Sony access to Crunchyroll's 70 million members around the world, allowing the Japanese entertainment and electronics conglomerate to compete better with Netflix and other global rivals, the Nikkei said. A Sony spokesman declined to comment on the report.
