    Amazon's (AMZN) streaming deal with Epix, which did a number on Netflix (NFLX -9.9%) shares last month, apparently featured interesting terms. An exec involved in talks tells Reuters Epix will receive a payout above its fixed up-front fee if Amazon's streaming subs pass a certain threshold. A shift from fixed to variable licensing fees is arguably a negative for Netflix, since it could make it easier for smaller streaming providers to gain access to valuable content. (earlier)

    Netflix (NFLX) jumps 3.8% premarket after Morgan Stanley catches up to the price action by upgrading to Overweight with price target of $85. Analysts at Morgan don't see Amazon as a direct threat, and say the current market price of Netflix puts no value on the company's international business.

    Netflix (NFLX +6.6%) announces that original series House of Cards will debut online on February 1. The show is considered the crown jewel of the company's drive to see its programming go mainstream with an all-star cast that includes Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, along with David Fincher behind the camera. An interesting aspect of Netflix's original content initiative is how it plans to use the immense amount of data it gathers on its customer's viewing habits which comes in stark contrast to the lack of transparency with network TV and the archaic Nielsen ratings.

    Shares of Netflix (NFLX +5%) continue their winning ways this week to hit their highest level since mid-August. Though the old mantra that the company sits mired in an industry with low barriers to entry and high barriers to profits still pervades, it seems to be getting a second look with the Internet streaming market still in its early stages and growth estimates set high.

    Netflix (NFLX +6.5%) roars out of the gate with a solid gain as Citi backs the Buy-rated name on the strength of their survey that shows improving customer satisfaction for the first time since last year's "Apocaflix" PR disaster. The Citi take in a nutshell: NFLX can be bought by investors at 10X P/E as its U.S. operations generate $5.50 in EPS, with a free call option on the company's international business.

    Whitney Tilson went on CNBC to sing Netflix's (NFLX +2.9%) praises again, and that helped its beaten-down shares outperform. Tilson suggested Netflix resembles Amazon 10 years ago, when Amazon's shares were hammered by the Dot.com bubble fallout and its survival questioned. He also addressed fears of rising content costs by arguing Netflix only has to outbid rivals with less video revenue. But what if studios refuse to license below a certain price due to the impact Netflix has on other revenue streams? (previous)

    Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings says Europe will be a major focus of the company over the next two to three years as he sees the company's streaming service eventually landing in nearly every nation on the planet with the possible exception of the always-problematic China. He takes on the threat of Amazon head on, noting that Netflix spends 3X what Amazon does on content to the benefit of customers and calling Amazon Prime a "confusing mess" with an algorithm that isn't as clever as that of Netflix.

    Netflix (NFLX) drops content from the A&E and History channels after talks between the company and A&E Networks broke down. The pulled content could be the biggest loss for the streaming service since Starz yanked Disney and Sony movies earlier this year.

    Coinstar (CSTR) and Verizon's (VZ) Redbox Instant streaming JV will launch somewhere between mid-November and mid-December, Verizon exec Eric Bruno tells Bloomberg. Bruno adds the service will offer monthly rentals and purchases in addition to subscriptions, and (like Netflix) will support non-PC devices. Verizon and Coinstar have suggested in the past their service would differentiate itself from Netflix (NFLX), mocked as "rerun TV" by some, through a greater focus on movies.
