Use of Estimates and Reclassifications

Use of Estimates and Reclassifications

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the accompanying financial statements and disclosures. Although we base these estimates on our best knowledge of current events and actions that we may undertake in the future, actual results may be different from the estimates. We have made certain reclassifications to prior period amounts to conform to the current period presentations.

Recently Adopted Accounting Policies

Recently Adopted Accounting Policies

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases must be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The new standard did not have a material impact on our reported financial position or results of operations in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Recently Issued Accounting Policies

In March 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-02, Improvements to Accounting for Costs of Films and License Agreements for Program Materials, in order to align the accounting for production costs of an episodic television series with the accounting for production costs of films by removing the content distinction for capitalization. ASU 2019-02 also requires reassessing estimates of the use of a film in a film group and accounting for any changes prospectively. In addition, ASU 2019-02 requires testing films and program material license agreements for impairment at a film group level when the films or license agreements are predominantly monetized with other films and license agreements. ASU 2019-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and early adoption is permitted. We are evaluating the impact on our reported financial position and results of operations, but do not believe it will have a material impact on either.

Discontinued Operations

Discontinued Operations

In the first quarter of 2019, we reclassified our legacy DVD subscription club as a discontinued operation and have presented the related operations in discontinued operations on the accompanying statement of operations. There were no assets or liabilities associated with this club in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
