Netflix Shares Fall as Subscriber Growth Hits a Wall


Shares of Netflix fell sharply Tuesday after it reported lower-than-expected Q2 earnings, which the company blamed on subscriber growth that fell short of forecasts. Netflix added 1.7 million subscribers in the quarter, pushing its total membership to more than 83 million, the company told shareholders. However, that growth was far less than the 2.5 million it had projected. “We are growing, but not as fast as we would like or have been,” reads the letter. “Disrupting a big market can be bumpy, but the opportunity ahead is as big as ever.”

Nintendo reports massive annual loss on the back of anemic Wii U and 3DS sales

Mario Wii U
Nintendo, with lower-than-expected sales of both the Wii U and 3DS, has reported an annual loss of $229 million (23.2 billion yen). This is down from last year’s wea profits of around $69 million (7.1 billion yen). The company says it is establishing a new “health” division in an attempt to bolster its customer numbers and revenues. Meanwhile, analysts and pundits are vehement that Nintendo needs to fully embrace mobile gaming — as in, Mario games for smartphones — if it wants to remain relevant. In any case, Nintendo isn’t likely to right the ship any time soon: Any new health or mobile efforts will take at least a year to realize properly, and with the company yet again foregoing its E3 keynote this year, Nintendo’s agenda for 2014 probably just consists of Wii U and 3DS games.
