    Though the common refrain from analysts is that Disney (DIS) made out like bandits in its major content deal with Netflix (NFLX), Rocco Pendola isn't so sure. He prefers the Time Warner (TWX) model of building a digital content powerhouse internally and just selling the scraps to Netflix, Amazon, and other content channels. With ESPN in its back pocket, Disney has the clout to gets its own networks in front of plenty of households. Why empower Netflix?

    Time Warner Cable (TWC -0.5%) Glenn Britt says networks with low ratings will receive a lot of scrutiny from the company. The comments from the exec hit during a period of time when cable and satellite companies continue to fight to lower their content costs. If the bickering continues and more stalemates such as the AMC Networks-Dish Network dispute crop up, Netflix (NFLX -0.3%) could be an under-the-radar beneficiary with its original content gaining traction.

    S&P weighs in on the Disney-Netflix (NFLX +0.7%) content deal, calling it a "groundbreaking agreement" in the SVOD space. No immediate impact on the credit ratings of NFLX is seen with the lead time of three years giving it time to work out an expanded subscriber base. The deal could also "lay the groundwork" for service offerings beyond steaming for Netflix, according to the agency.
