The prequel to Batman is coming to Netflix. The streaming site is reportedly winning the rights to stream the ‘Gotham’ TV show worldwide next year after the show premieres this month right here on Fox. Gotham is produced by Warner Brothers. Competition for re-runs of broadcast and cable shows is more intense as Amazon and Hulu have both increased their appetite for content.
And, Youtube has launched a new feature that lets you tip your favorite video producers. The service is called fan funding. The video host has to set up a virtual tip jar. Once it’s set up, viewers can use a Google Wallet account to contribute right from a video page or the Android app. You decide the amount you want to give, and Youtube will take 5 percent plus 21 cents to handle the deal. Fan funding for iPhone users is in the works.
That’s your Daily Tech.
