HBO (TWX +4.7%) vs. Netflix (NFLX +4.1%): Is streaming killing the pay-TV business model? Last year, HBO added 1.9M subscribers - just slightly below the 2M streaming customers Netflix brought into the fold. All told, several years into the Netflix threat, HBO still has 114M global subscribers, a mark that "dwarfs" its rival. (H/T media reporter Julia Boorstin)

    having to pay for 200 channels of crap to earn the "privelidge" of subscribing to HBO or Showtime is a business model that is going to go away. and the sooner the better.

    Netflix is the dream of a lifetime: Finally for a low price under $21.00 (including access to a large DVD library) I have over 100,000 video choices that I can watch on my schedule!

     

    The cable and satellite industry is faced with a slow but definite decline unless it changes its "bundling" approach.

     

    Excuse me while I get back to House of Cards....
