America, Future, and Hulu: moviepass 533% 4359 CASSIE LANGDON Card valid only at MoviePass Theatres BUSINESS NETFLIX FOR MOVIE TIX Mar 23 | MoviePass applies subscription model to movie ticket sales; acquiring 2 million subscribers faster than Netflix, Hulu and Spotify. MoviePass, a movie-ticket subscription service that allows users to attend one movie a day for $6.95 a month (reducing the cost of a single ticket to significantly less than the national average,) is about to surpass 3 million total users in its first 5 months. ___ As streaming services like Netflix and Hulu increase in popularity, movie theaters have been trying to reinvent the theater experience by reimagining the concession counter and making seats more luxurious. Even so, theater attendance did not increase in 2016, and experts are predicting a 4 percent decline in 2017 (a 22-year low). ___ Movie pass provides hope for attendance numbers in the future, even though theater companies are wary of the introduction of the new service. When Lowe announced the plan for the cut-rate subscription service back in August, AMC Entertainment, North America’s largest multiplex operator, released a warning statement saying the company is “not welcome here” and threatening legal action. ___ The ticketing firm was launched by a former founding executive of Netflix, Mitch Lowe. Lowe said in a recent statement, “We’re actually shocked,” adding, “We seem to have hit a nerve in America.” Even though AMC execs are not interested sharing admissions or concessions revenue, Lowe claims the goal of his company is simply “to strive for mutually beneficial relationships.”

The company had began liquidating some of their 700+ stores in the U.S., hoping to be able to hold on to at least 400 of them, but soon realized they didn’t have the $50 to $100 million it would take to preserve the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The iconic toy store chain is looking to sell all of its stores to the highest bidder before they all close down, but after a slowly sulking holiday season where the gift powerhouse didn’t even reach half of their projected sales for Christmas, a lot of investors may feel its too shaky to buy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Toys R Us has been trying to revamp the experience at their stores by including things like a play area where kids can try toys before they buy, but that didn’t boost sales the way they thought either. Unfortunately, we probably won’t be seeing much more of the toy store or its cousin, Babies R Us, in the United States after this summer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What was your favorite toy as a little kid?

America, Family, and Friends: NFL Replaces Papa John's With Pizza Hut As NFL Official Sponsor @balleralert Pizza Hhut NFL Replaces Papa John’s With Pizza Hut As NFL Official Sponsor - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just weeks after the official ending of the controversial 2017-18 NFL season, the league has officially severed business ties with its official pizza sponsor, Papa John’s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During the regular season, the pizza chain faced widespread criticisms and backlash for its CEO’s comments about the longstanding protest against police brutality and social injustices, and its affect on Papa John’s pizza sales. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, the CEO has stepped down from his position in the wake of the criticisms. In addition, the league and the chain have announced that they have ended their business relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just one day later, the organization revealed its replacement. Now, instead of the Papa John’s deal, which was expected to expire in 2020, the league has signed a deal with Pizza Hut through 2021. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "We know many of our fans enjoy pizza while watching NFL games and we are thrilled to have Pizza Hut, and industry leader and one of America’s favorite brands, as an official league sponsor,” Roger Goodell said of the new partnership. “With a focus on family, friends and fun, Pizza Hut has the creativity we are lookin for in a partner and we look forward to working together with them to make the at-home NFL experience more exciting than ever for our fans.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new deal is expected to start April 1, with marketing focused around the NFL Draft.

Best Buy, Billboard, and Memes: Best Buy to Discontinue Selling CDs; Target May Be Next in Line to Do So @balleralert BEST BUT Best Buy to Discontinue Selling CDs; Target May Be Next in Line to Do So - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With digital music streaming becoming the newest holy grail, Best Buy has made the decision to pull all physical CDs from their in-store shelves… for good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Billboard, the electronics company-which was once known as one of the world’s leading music merchandisers, made the announcement to their distributors that they would be discontinuing the CDs starting July 1st, 2018. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, due to a previous commitment made to its vendors, the retailer will continue to carry vinyl albums for the next two years. But, let’s be real, nowadays, vinyl albums aren’t necessarily in high demand either… at least for everyday people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reportedly, last year, CD sales in the United States went down 18.5 percent. Insiders also say that, as of late, Best Buy is now only generating $40 million a year through their CD business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Target is also the next to see a decline in sales. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The discount corporation is currently in limbo with manufacturers, as they are now seeking to switch to scanned-based trading for the CDs-which is basically a form of consignment.
