AT&T Has Acquired Home Automation Company Xanboo

AT&T has acquired home automation company Xanboo, part of a spate of activity which could lead to energy management services from broadband providers. Xanboo provides homeowners with a system for managing connected devices, such as security cameras and controllers, from a smartphone, TV, or PC. CEPro reported the acquisition yesterday (hat tip to Earth2Tech). The deal follows Motorola's announcement last week that it has bought home automation company 4Home, in which Verizon also had invested. Earlier this year, iControl and uControl merged their product offerings, which are expected to be used as part of Comcast's Xfinity home security service. Internet broadband providers are pushing into home automation to expand their product offerings as a way to retain customers. They expect that consumers will be willing to pay for security services, where people can access cameras and door alarms from a PC, TV, or smartphone. An AT&T representative today said it is too early to discuss specific offerings around the Xanboo technology. "We see synergies between Xanboo's technology and our offerings for consumers and small businesses. Xanboo's monitoring services are a natural extension of our high-speed Internet, video, and voice offerings and a good fit for our wireless services," she said.

No Longer Tiny, Netflix Gets Respect -and Creates Fear

Netflix's growth surge—at a time of weak DVD sales and increasingly fragmented TV audiences—prompts concern among movie and TV studios as well as other technology companies. One big worry is that the company could end up dominating the electronic distribution of movies and TV the way Apple Inc.'s iTunes Store dominates music. To prevent that, entertainment and technology companies are exploring plans to outflank Netflix with their own offerings. Amazon.com Inc. is developing a Netflix-like subscription service that would offer TV shows and movies, according to people familiar with the matter. That service would be included as a bundle with its Amazon Prime shipping service, which costs $79 a year, those people said. An Amazon spokesman didn't respond to a request for comment. Media companies, meantime, have talked to Microsoft Corp. and Sony Corp., both of which provide access to Netflix's streaming service through their videogame consoles, about licensing TV shows directly to the two companies for offering through subscriptions, said people briefed on the conversations. A spokesman for Microsoft, which already cut one such deal with Walt Disney Co.'s ESPN, declined to comment. A Sony spokesman didn't respond to a request for comment. TV maker Vizio Inc. also has expressed interest securing video content for a subscription service, according to people familiar with the talks. A Vizio spokesman declined to comment.

3 Million Households to Buy Connected TV for Christmas

About 3 million U.S. households plan to buy an Internet-connected television through the holiday shopping season, according to a new report. Research firm Parks Associates said the projection suggests another nail in the coffin for brick-and-mortar video stores. Despite the tally, just 38% of households plan to make a CE purchase by Christmas compared to 50% during the same period last year, according to Parks. “Consumers want deals; that is their trigger as economic conditions have made them more cautious buyers,” CEO Tricia Parks said. “Market players must stress the value and convenience of Internet-connected devices.” Connected devices include connected game consoles, Blu-ray Disc players, tablet computers and media players. By the end of the year, more than 40 million U.S. consumers will have a broadband-connected game console, more than 8 million will have a PC-to-TV connection, more than 5 million will have a connected Blu-ray player and more than 4 million will have a networked media player, such as an Apple TV or Roku. “Connected devices are the future of content consumption and entertainment in the living room as they capture the broader trends of integration among different silos in consumers’ lives,” principal analyst Kurt Scheff said.
