Spitballing on Netflix's hardware strategy

Netflix (NFLX +2.3%) should create its own set-top box instead of making deals with cable/satellite providers for the hardware link, suggests PC Magazine writer Seamus Condron.

The move would open the door for a premium Netflix service that could price above what the basic service charges through the traditional outlets the company currently utilizes.

    Up to this point Netflix has stood against multiple tiers of streaming service. I have enjoyed it that way. And what I have been unable to stream through Netflix, I have been able to usually get via Netflix DVDs.


    As long as the various device makers are will to keep putting Netflix buttons on their products, I see no reason to change.

    I would not pay extra for a "premium" box. As a matter of fact. I would not have netflix if it required a box of it's own. Thinking about it, this has to be the dumbest idea I have ever read. This would be completely contrary to the whole netflix business model.
