Rocket Internet’s upcoming IPO looks to be a barnstormer. As reported by Reuters on Wednesday, the flotation on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange next month is already fully subscribed, and the German e-commerce giant expects to raise twice the €750 million ($970 million) target originally set. This would value the clone factory at around $8 billion rather than $5 billion. The Berlin-based company, which specializes in copying and rapidly internationalizing successful startup business models, made $1 billion in revenue last year. Fashion retailer Zalando, a Rocket spinoff, will also make its stock market debut in October – and that IPO is reportedly oversubscribed.
Apple TV users can now catch up on episodes from shows like Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story and Archer, thanks to a new FX Now app that was added to the device Tuesday. The app offers catch-up content from shows from FX, FXX and FXM, but only if you also have these channels as part of your cable line-up, and are customer of a participating pay TV provider. FX Now has already been available on Xbox One, iOS, Windows 8 and the web, and is set to come to Roku soon.
Pioneering social TV service Miso will shut down on October 23, according to an email sent to Miso users. The shut-down comes roughly 18 months after Miso’s assets had been acquired by Dijit, the company behind Netxguide.tv, which itself was subsequently acquired by Viggle. Miso’s users were encouraged in the good-bye email sent out this weekend to join Viggle’s service, which offers rewards for TV check-ins. However, not everyone was happy about this offer — some of Miso’s users from countries other than the U.S. have been complaining on Twitter that the Viggle app isn’t available in their market. This story was corrected at 5:25pm. An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Miso would shut down this week.
