Britain's two biggest broadcasters are teaming up on a Netflix rival

Soumya Sriraman, president of Britbox United States and Canada, speaks on stage at the 2019 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour.

British broadcaster ITV announced Friday that its upcoming streaming service with the BBC will launch at the end of the year and cost just £5.99 ($7.50) a month.

Called BritBox, the planned streaming platform is a partnership between the U.K.’s two largest broadcasters, and will see them take on Netflix and its dominance in online entertainment. ITV shares popped 2% on the news.

The platform will offer shows including ITV’s “Love Island” and “Cleaning Up” as well as old shows like the BBC’s “Gavin & Stacey” and “The Office.” It will also commission a range of original series exclusive to BritBox.

The venture will be 90%-owned by ITV, while the BBC will have the option to increase its holdings over time to 25%.

A subscription to BritBox will let people watch TV shows in high definition across multiple screens and devices, ITV said. Netflix’s basic plan in the U.K. also costs £5.99, but that doesn’t let users watch on more than one screen simultaneously.

That means it’s technically cheaper than Netflix, which sells its standard multi-screen offering in the U.K. for £8.99 per month. It also undercuts Amazon Prime, which currently costs £7.99 a month.

MTA Reports Delays on Slew of Subway Lines

New Yorkers on the subway are kicking off their weekends dealing with long delays to go with the blazing hot temperatures.

The MTA reported at 6 p.m. Friday that the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 trains are all facing delays due to a network communications issue impacting service in both directions.

The shuttle between Times Square and Grand Central is also affected by the disruption.

Photos on social media showed massive crowds building at different subway stations, including a line of people trying to get down the stairs to the platform at Grand Central on the 4,5,6 lines, and a packed platform at 96th and Broadway on the 1,2,3, lines.

New York City Comptroller called the situation “completely unacceptable.”

“Service is suspended and platforms are boiling. New York cannot function like this,” Scott Stringer tweeted.

NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson echoed those sentiments, saying he will be “expecting a report from the MTA on how this happened during a heat wave when people are encouraged to use mass transit.”

Some passengers on trains at the time were told to get off the train and wait at the sweltering stations. Other rides complained about being stuck on the subway and not moving, without being told what is going on.

The MTA said passengers can see statiion agents for a courtesy pass for continued bus or train service.

Metro North was also cross-honoring Metrocard holders at impacted stations.

Facebook is trying to woo YouTube stars with new ways to make money

For many online video stars, YouTube is top of mind when it comes to the best place to post a video. Facebook is trying to change that.

Facebook is sweetening its offerings for video creators, whether they’re viral video stars or media companies, luring them to its platform with new tools to help them make money through advertising and direct payments from Facebook users.

The new or updated offerings are similar to some already offered on YouTube and start-ups such as Patreon. The changes were announced at its “Facebook Creator Day” in Malibu, California, on Tuesday, held ahead of VidCon, a conference for the online video industry that starts Wednesday in Anaheim.

Facebook Watch, the platform’s video offering that includes original programming and uploaded video from creators, launched globally last year after being introduced in 2017. In June, Facebook said it had reached more than 720 million users monthly and 140 million users daily who spend at least one minute on Watch. In comparison, Google-owned YouTube says more than 1.9 billion logged-in users watch video on the platform every month.

Some advertisers said that even though Facebook’s numbers were up, they wanted more specifics on the data, as well as better functionality for users to discover videos.

YouTube has spawned a class of superstar creators, some of whom rake in millions of dollars every month. Instagram has been a boon for influencers, but IGTV, Instagram’s answer to YouTube, has struggled to find the same kind of success. Creators have also complained about finding their revenue footing on Facebook Watch.

“A lot of creators are focusing almost all of their attention on YouTube, Instagram and emerging platforms,” said Joe Gagliese, co-founder and managing partner of influencer marketing agency Viral Nation.

Gagliese said part of the difficulty in implementing new features is that people aren’t used to seeing certain types of ads or subscriptions on Facebook. YouTube, on the other hand, has been more focused on monetization for creators since the beginning, he said.

“Changing a human’s opinion on anything can be difficult,” he said. Facebook’s algorithm changes have also affected the reach of content, which has been a turnoff for creators, he said.

Facebook’s slew of updates include new ad options — for instance, letting creators show only ad formats that don’t interrupt the video, such as a pre-roll ad. That feature is available now, the company said.

Facebook will also update its “Brand Collabs Manager,” which lets advertisers find creators for branded content partnerships. For instance, creators can share their own audience for ads targeting. It’s similar to YouTube’s lucrative Preferred product, which connects big-name advertisers with YouTube’s hottest creators.

Facebook is also tweaking how much creators earn from their fans through more direct payments. The company’s “Fan subscriptions” program lets viewers pay creators each month for exclusive content and other rewards. It’s similar to the start-up Patreon, which lets an individual collect payments from fans.

But while Patreon takes up to a 12% cut, Facebook starting next year will take a 30% cut from these subscriptions on its web platform. Facebook won’t take a further cut where mobile platforms are already taking a 30% transaction fee from creators. Currently, Facebook doesn’t take a revenue share for fan subscriptions, so creators keep 100% of their earnings on the web platform and 70% on mobile platforms. Going forward, creators will keep a 70% cut of the revenue from fan subscriptions regardless of whether it’s on web or mobile platforms.

Facebook is also testing an expansion of Facebook Stars, a program it already has for creators who stream video games. Stars lets users buy packs of virtual stars that can be given to creators. Facebook takes a cut of each Star pack purchase. For example, if a Facebook user buys a pack of 100 stars for $1.40, Facebook keeps 28.6%, leaving the user $1 to gift to creators. The more a Facebook user spends on Stars, the less share Facebook will take. Creators get 1 cent per Star sent by a fan.
