A deal for DreamWorks (DWA) to push its movies/shows through Netflix's (NFLX) streaming service may herald better pricing power for content providers. Previously limited to pay-TV, studios now have another choice in Netflix, and soon a "tidal wave" of Netflix competitors.

    But will NFLX still be around in summer 2013 when HBO's contract with DWA expires?

     

    "Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, added: “You’re seeing power moving back into the hands of content creators. When a company like DreamWorks ends a long-running pay TV deal — when a new buyer in the space steps up — that’s a really interesting landscape shift.”

     

    Sure, but DWA is one of few independent studios that are not tied to the lucrative pay TV business. So, that kind of bs talk only applies to content owners like Dreamworks Animation, Lionsgate, and Miramax, two of which were spun off from major entertainment companies. And we are only talking about 22 films in the can and a company that only produces a few films a year.
