(NFLX) was said to be in talks to add TV subscription-streaming services to set-top boxes of U.S. cable-television operators. Pace supplies set-top boxes to pay-TV operators, and North America accounted for 55 percent of its $2.4 billion revenue last year. The Saltaire, England-based companys stock gained as much as 5.2 percent, the biggest intraday rise since July 30. Netflix, the largest subscription-streaming service, has had discussions with U.S. cable companies including Comcast Corp. (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable Inc., according to people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be named because the talks are private. The talks suggest cable operators increasingly see Netflixs $7.99 monthly service as a tool to attract and retain customers, rather than a threat. Pay-TV operators seem to be getting a bit less political about allowing such over-the-top services to be bundled on their set-top boxes and this will benefit Pace, Lee Simpson , an analyst at Jefferies LLC in London, said by phone today. Simpson recommends buying the stock and has a 12-month price target of 338 pence on the shares. Pace was up 3.4 percent at 271 pence as of 2:05 p.m.

Spider-Man. Ben Affleck. It seems you cant channel hop for more than ten seconds these days without seeing some sort of super-buff hero take charge of the screen. And where are they? New York, Gotham and Metropolis. But where are Londons heroes? Yes, there are amazing people who make London life safer, but why dont we have a bona fide super-healing, acrobatic, gravity-defying super-being to defend our city? Well, it seems that our pleas from last year have been heeded, as in true comic book fashion, a superhero is gestating in London town. At Sohos Vinyl Factory, HPs ZED pop-up will see six animators creating what they believe Londons superhero would look like, all the way from infancy to muscle-bound maturity. Today (October 14), youll see the genesis of our fair hero as the artist details his or her younger years (see the draft of the very beginning above). Tomorrow (October 15), theyll be covering the golden age of the superhero between 12pm and 5pm and then tomorrow evening (Wednesday October 16 from 7pm9pm) theyll screen the lifecycle of Londons Hero on stage. And if you want to have a go at creating a hero yourself, HP have provided some work stations where you can create your very own interpretation of Londons wonder kid. So if you have an eye for design or just want to hang out with some fellow nerds, head down now!
