Both Amazon and Netflix made a deal with Disney to add additional content to their streaming libraries. Amazon will add about 800 episodes of content and Netflix will continue offering programs like Grey’s Anatomy and Lost. Amazon has added over 11,000 new titles since February. In other news, despite massive growth in online video watching, most U.S. households are still paying for television. The loss of cable subscribers is not due to Internet streaming, but may be more closely linked to the economy. Increased poverty and a reduction in new homeowners are taking its toll on TV subscriptions. And finally, a study finds that cellphones are shaping the lives of college students more than ever. It should be no surprise that 94% of the students surveyed text message every day, but 60% admitted to feeling physically addicted to their phones.
