Lovefilm to stream Universal Pictures films in the UK

Lovefilm has signed a multi-year agreement with NBC Universal to stream Universal Pictures films to its Lovefilm Instant users. The addition of Universal extends the roster of films that currently includes movies from Disney, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros, Entertainment One, and Studio Canal. The streaming agreement would help the Amazon-owned movie rental company fight off Netflix, which launched in the UK in January.

Call for submissions to the LA Mobile Arts Festival

The LA Mobile Arts Festival is looking for submissions to include in its showcase in August. Proposals for photography, sound- and video-based works, sculptures and performance art installations have until July 15 to be received by the organizers, with the aim of filling up as much of Arena 1 of the Santa Monica Arts Studios as possible. Funds will be made available by the organizers for projects deemed exciting. The Festival itself will run from August 18 to 26.


Research: 1 in 4 mobile users in US, Western Europe to use NFC payments

Research suggests that more than a quarter of US and Western European mobile users will use an NFC-enabled mobile phone to pay for goods in-store by 2017. Juniper Research suggests only two percent of the populations covered would use such a feature this year, with the total number of NFC mobile payments expected to exceed $180 billion by 2017.
