Showtime to pull shows from Netflix

Culture
-It's Wednesday, March 23rd. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get Loaded. Netflix is gearing up to launch its own show. The company is getting into the content business by licensing a new 26-episode series with David Fincher called "House of Cards." It will hit Netflix Watch Instantly in the US and Canada first before airing anywhere else. The show is being produced by Media Rights Capital and is due out in late 2012. And Showtime is pulling its shows off Netflix. Content like "Dexter" and "Californication" that have new seasons coming to Showtime are being moved off Watch Instantly to prep for Showtime's on-demand service called Showtime Anytime. The new deal will allow Netflix to keep the rights to stream shows that are no longer airing on Showtime like "The Tudors" and "Sleeper Cell." The new deal will take effect in the summer. As expected, Amazon launched their app store yesterday. Right now, the store has around 3800 apps grouped by most popular and useful, including a free app offering each day. You'll need to download the store directly onto your phone from Amazon's website and not through the Android Market. Right now, the service does not work on AT&T phones, so some customers will have to wait. To check it out, go to amazon.com/apps. And Apple is none too happy with Amazon's use of "App Store". The company is suing Amazon, accusing them of trademark infringement. A spokesperson for Apple says Amazon's use of the "App Store" will confuse and mislead customers. Amazon has not commented on this. The iPad 2 is coming to 25 more markets this week. The tablet will hit Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Spain this Friday. Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, and additional countries will get their hands on it in April. According to a study by Pew Internet & American Life Project, a lot of underage kids are using social networking sites. Almost half of all 12-year-olds in the US have accounts on a site like Facebook, as well as 82% of kids between the ages of 14 and 17. Senators have reached out to Facebook to address privacy issues with the site collecting personal data from these underage users, saying it makes them vulnerable to online predators. Facebook says it is actively policing underage accounts and reportedly kicks out 20,000 underage users per day. And Samsung announced two new Galaxy Tabs. The 8.9 and 10.1 are 8.6 mm thick and support Wi-Fi and 4G with 1280 x 800 displays. The 10.1 comes in 16 and 32 gigabytes for $499 and $599 respectively. The 8.9 version is $469 and $569 for 16 and 32 gigs. The tablets both have 3-megapixel rear cameras and 2-megapixel front-facing, and support Adobe Flash. The 10.1 is due out June 8th, while the 8.9 is slated for early summer. That's your news for today. I'm Mark Licea for CNET.com and you've just been Loaded.
