Movie studios pitch Netflix new type of content deal

  • Netflix (NFLX) is being pitched a deal by major movies studios to buy exclusive rights to a miniseries that would be released in movie theaters initially in one- to two-hour episodes.
  • The company is reported to be torn on the issue if landing early rights to the filmed episodes outweighs straying from its binge viewing model.
  • If nothing else, the discussions highlight the advantage of being on the content side (DIS, SNE, VIAB, CMCSA, LGF, TWX, AMCX, DISCA, SNI) of the media business as new distribution channels emerge.

    This could be okay for Netflix, if the finances are right. People can still binge view on lots of other stuff.

    What goes around comes around; the return of the old Saturday Afternoon matinee serials.
