Last week, the video-streaming and subscription company Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) announced that it would toss out the traditional conference call with analysts to report its Q2 performance next week on July 22. It certainly makes sense for the company, given that following Q1 numbers they announced that 3 million customers were added in the first quarter taking it up to 36 million monthly subscribing to its growing library of streamed content.

Yesterday saw Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) announce that it would join Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) and also stream its earnings report later today. While it makes less sense for a company not involved with streaming video, it’s likely not the last time that you will read of other company’s going this route. Yahoo is also clearly interested in staying in the news after surprising investors and analysts when it reported its first quarter numbers.

While Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO)’s earnings rose 26 percent to $420 million in the first quarter of 2013, its display advertising revenue fell sharply. In April, the company projected second-quarter net revenue of $1.06 billion to $1.09 billion, below the average analyst expectation of $1.11 billion, but that could certainly change today.

(NASDAQ:YHOO)’s studio in Sunnyvale, Calif., on the Internet company’s investor relations page beginning at 2 p.m. PDT or market close. Unlike the Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) call, don’t expect a pair of moderators or the pair to be taking questions via Twitter and email as Netflix plans to do with its call next week.
