Hulu is trying to take on Netflix any way they can and their latest move may tip the scale in their favor!

That's because the deal that Hulu made with Sony Pictures TV for all 180 episodes is a whopping $180 million dollars!

That's a lot of cheddar but it may be worth it for the show many consider to be the greatest series ever!!
This deal is going to be a festivus for the rest of us!!!

Cash Money Records Sued Over Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III Licensing Rights…AGAIN!


This is so late; Tha Carter IV already came out! HA!

EMI Music has slapped Cash Money Records with threat of legal action after YMCB skipped some licensing payments.

Lil' Wayne's Tha Carter III is the only record in question and EMI previously sued Cash Money for copyright infringement of the album.

EMI and Cash Money settled and the latter agrees to pay EMI in two installments, and paid the first.

So, you guessed it: Cash Money hasn't paid the second and EMI wants THEIR cash money!

Netflix Falsely Accused Of Pulling The Bodyguard From Streaming After Whitney Houston's Death!


Oh boy. This is one hell of a flub!

Netflix was thrown into scandal this past weekend when Google Plus Week host Dan McDermott noticed that the Whitney Houston film The Bodyguard was no longer available for streaming, and was allegedly told by a company representative that the studio pulled the film so they could make money on DVD sales in light of her death!

However, the whole thing turns out to be a misunderstanding, and McDermott is the first to admit it!

Why Were Astro's Headphones Such A Big Deal On X Factor?


And now it all makes sense!

Actually, it makes what this kid did even MORE effed up!

We reported yesterday EXCLUSIVELY on PerezHilton.com that Astro had caused quite a bit of problems on X Factor this week when he not only acted like a petulant child and refused to perform after being knocked to the bottom two and facing elimination, but also outright disregarded producers when he went on-stage wearing Dr. Dre's Beats headphones around his neck, which the reality competition does not have the right to air due to licensing, and are now probably facing one hell of a fine!

Local News Stations Glad To See The Big O Go!

Filed under: TV NewsOprah WinfreyBusiness Blitz


This isn't too much of a shocker.

Looks like The Oprah Winfrey Show costs a pretty penny to license and distribute, and local news station are looking forward to when the Queen of talk goes off-air so they can save money!!

A source says:

“Oprah’s ratings have eroded so much that the image of Oprah is much stronger than the reality of Oprah, either as a news lead-in or as a money-maker. In many cases, Oprah is a stunning loss leader. There are people who are deeply thankful she is calling it quits.”

They go on to say that whomever comes in to replace the Big O will be “unlikely to get Oprah-sized ratings but are far cheaper.”

Wow. We can only imagine what kind of licensing fees those stations have to pay to put the show on the air!!

What do U think?? Will U be sad to see Oprah go or do U think it's time for more affordable daytime talk??
