12/03/10 Good morning, it’s Friday, December 3, 2010, and this is your first early morning digital briefing. If you would like to read this or any other Cynopsis edition online, click here.
Apple and Google seem to have a new competitor in the battle to secure streaming rights for TV episodes in Netflix, according a report in the NYPost. The company, which has long offered past episodes of TV shows online and via DVD, is offering studios between $70k-$100k per episode for the right to stream current episodes to subscribers. Netflix has already struck a deal with NBC Universal last month for the rights to stream Saturday Night Live the day after it airs on the network.
Turning its attention to the mobile space, social gaming giant Zynga has acquired McKinney, Texas-based mobile game development company Newtoy, Inc., makers of the “Games With Friends” franchise that includes mobile games “Words With Friends” and “Chess With Friends.” Zynga recently launched it top game “Farmville” on both the iPhone and the iPad and named Zynga Poker as the first Zynga game to be launched on Android.
