Netflix is adding subscribers at a slower pace than envisioned, renewing fears that its growth may sputter as the video streaming service tries to fend off fiercer competition. The numbers released Monday mark a rare letdown for a company that has enthralled investors with its ability to consistently top expectations. But Netflix missed its target badly in the April-June period, causing its high-flying stock to plummet by about 14 percent to $345.63 in extended trading. The shares had more than doubled before the sell-off. If the stock plunges on the same trajectory during Tuesday's regular trading session, it will be the steepest drop in nearly four years. In a research note, GBH Insights analyst Daniel Ives called the second-quarter showing "a near-term gut punch" to Netflix. The company gained 5.1 million subscribers worldwide during the quarter, more than 1 million below the number that management had believed it could. It marked the first time in a more than a year that Netflix hadn't exceeded its subscriber growth projections. As of June 30, Netflix had 130 million subscribers, including 57.4 million in the U.S. Netflix predicted it will add 5 million subscribers in the current quarter, which ends in September, slightly slower than the pace a year ago. The spring and summer months traditionally mark Netflix's most sluggish period as more people go on vacation and spend time outside instead of watching video. Despite its second-quarter misfire on subscriber growth, the Los Gatos, California, company reported earnings that beat analyst estimates. Earnings grew 32 percent from last year to $384 million, or 85 cents per share. Revenue climbed 6 percent to $3.9 billion. Bringing in more subscribers and money is vital for Netflix because it expects to keep spending more on exclusive TV shows and movies to try to stand out from rivals. The company will spend as much as $8 billion on programming this year. Ives expects Netflix to pour another $10 billion into its video mix next year. Netflix already has been battling challenges from Amazon, Google's YouTube and Hulu in the video streaming market, and it is likely to face even stiffer competition as other formidable rivals try to muscle into the market. AT&T just bought Time Warner for $81 billion in a deal that includes HBO — a pay TV and video streaming service that AT&T plans to expand in an attempt to lure more viewers away from Netflix. And Walt Disney is hoping to close on a $71 billion deal to buy prized entertainment franchises from 21st Century Fox to feed into a video streaming service Disney will debut next year. Meanwhile, Apple — the world's most valuable company — is spending about $1 billion on original programming for a video service of its own. "Right now, Netflix is still miles ahead of its closest competitor, but there is going to be a giant bulls-eye on Netflix's back during the next 18 to 24 months," Ives predicted in an interview.

Mr Vegas performs during a tour stop in Europe

Last week, Mr Vegas gave the world the 'Meme' song. Now that popular song has spawned a dance of the same name. Zip code presenter and choreographer Doblin Jackson has teamed up with the Xqlusiv Dancers to conceptualise a 'Meh Meh' dance to compliment the song which is doing well in the dances. "I had been thinking about all the memes that had been going around in the past week, so I came up with a great dance to go with the song. The song is funny, the Meh Meh dance is funny, now when this song drops in the dance, everybody can do the moves," Doblin told Loop Jamaica. If you’re wondering what’s a “Meh Meh", you may have been living under a rock for the past week because it is all the rage on social media. In the wake of the brouhaha around his video recordings of a licensed firearm holder shooting a security guard during an altercation going viral, Mr Vegas went viral for second time when he posted a video chastising fans for making memes about the shooting incident in Kingston, but pronounced the word 'meh meh'. Mr. Vegas capitalised on the brouhaha around the verbal faux pas by recording a single called 'Meme'. The single, released on the MV Music label, hit the Internet last week via Mr. Vegas' youtube channel, and has racked up thousands of views. The new choreographed moves will be part of video that MrVegas will be doing for the project. Mr Vegas is presently on a tour of Europe that will see him performing in countries such as Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Belgium and England. He will be launching his latest album, a black empowerment-themed musical tour de force dubbed 'Ism' later this month. For the latest news, download our app at Android; and at IoS.

Saad Bin Zafar has hit an unbeaten 79 to help the Chris Gayle-led Vancouver Knights clinch the inaugural Global T20 Canada cricket title Sunday with a seven-wicket win over West Indies B. Vancouver reached 148-3 with 15 balls to spare in reply to West Indies B's 145 all out in 17.4 overs. Zafar plundered eight boundaries and three sixes in his match-winning 48-ball innings. Zafer and Rassie van der Dussen joined with Vancouver in trouble at 22-3, and with Gayle already back in the pavilion for just 2 runs. Zafar and van der Dussen advanced Vancouver to 100-3 in 13.1 overs with the run-rate down to one-a-ball, and shared an overall fourth-wicket stand of 126. Van der Dussen hit the winning boundary to finish 44 not out off 41 balls. Zafar hit 14 runs — a six and two fours — off the last three balls of the 11th over by Sherfane Rutherford — and a further two boundaries against Derval Green (2-20) in the next over as the run chase began to look comfortable. Earlier, West Indies B struggled with the bat after losing the toss in the last game of the six-team competition. Allrounder Fabian Allen provided the only serious resistance with a 23-ball 41, including three fours and three sixes. Jamaican Sheldon Cottrell took 4-29 for Vancouver and leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed 3-24. The tournament in Canada bought together some of the most exciting players in the T20 format, the quickest version of international cricket. The drawcards included Australians Steve Smith and David Warner, who are serving 12-month bans from international cricket imposed by their national association for their involvement in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa in March.
