  • Netflix (NFLX +13.4%) resumes trading after a halt to reach as high as $84.50 before tripping up circuit breakers once again. All the excitement is tied to a 13D filed by Carl Icahn showing a 9.98% stake in Netflix and saying the company holds "significant strategic value due its dominant market position and global growth prospects". Now the question is if Icahn still sees shares as undervalued now that they have run up a hefty gain lickety-split. [View news story]
    Yippee ki-yay, MF!!! ;-)

  • The poor quality of U.S. broadband could be hurting Netflix (NFLX). Though a recent FCC report claims 60% of U.S. households have broadband connections (defined as 768kbps or more), only 38% have connections of at least 3Mbps, the minimum level Netflix says is needed to provide DVD-quality video. Also, only 26% are estimated to have 6Mbps+ connections - Netflix claims 5Mbps is needed to provide HD video. Netflix provided disappointing Q3 domestic streaming subscriber guidance in July. [View news story]
    His trying to herd US customers into the HD video data requirement is simply unnecessary and will only get you caught up in your ISPs data limits ... and additional charges$$$$!

    Right on!! The one thing I really - really love about Netflix is the lack of commercials!!

    The other guys (orangeblood and SoldHigh !) want NEW movie releases and HD video for $7.99 a month ... get serious guys!! If you want that, then pay the ~$100 per month for your satellite/cable service and quit complaining!!

    Pulling numbers out of your ***!!!

    Netflix suggests the following:

    Good quality (up to 0.3 GB per hour)
    Better quality (up to 0.7 GB per hour)
    Best quality (up to 1 GB per hour, or up to 2.3 GB per hour for HD)

    Video quality is excellent on my 2mbps connection!!

    It took Netflix a good six months to "get it together" down here in Panamá! Now the movie descriptions, alternate audio and subtitles are all working fine ... finally!

  • Netflix: Closed Captioning Could Help Stock Rise [View article]
    I am using Netflix down here in the Republic of Panamá. The audio is available in four languages: English, Español, Français, and Português. Subtitles are available in English, Español and Português. I get to watch WHAT I want WHEN I want watch it! They have all six seasons of LOST! DirecTV never did show me the end of the series and the shows were all mixed up and not in the proper sequence!

    How many audio and subtitle options does your $$Satellite or $$Cable setup offer you????????

    If you need a bathroom break NETFLIX will pause the movie, if you want to watch the rest of the movie next week NETFLIX remembers where you left off! If you LIKE the movie NETFLIX will find more like it to offer to you! ... does your $$Satellite or $$Cable setup do any of that you ...yea! For how much$$$$????


    NETFLIX does all that for only $7.99 a month!!! ;-)

  • Netflix Subscribers Watched 1 Billion Hours Of Video In June [View article]
    I've been "long" on NFLX since they were priced in the $20s range! Yes, I sorely regret not "cashing out" when it hit the $300s, but I suffered with them all the way down to where they are today. I love the service and believe it deserves a comeback! It is now fully functional down here in Panamá. Audio is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Subtitles available in Off, Spanish and Portuguese. ;-)

    The secondary audio and subtitles have never worked properly on my SKY satellite system1 ;-(

    The $7.99 a month for NFLX sure beats the heck out of my $65 a month satelite bill ... which will be dropped SOON!

    NFLX= NO commercials! ;-)

    SKY satellite= LOTS of commercials! ;-(

  • Netflix (NFLX -0.2%) strikes a multi-year deal with Latin American movie distributor Telefilms that will result in Hunger Games and other new films being available for streaming in the region. Netflix adds it now has over 1M Latin American subs. The company's shares were hammered in April after it provided weaker-than-expected international sub guidance, and warned its international ops will take at least 8 quarter to "reach sustained profits." (yesterday)  [View news story]
    Netflix has been available here in Panamá since last year, but only recently became fully functional ... (now has alternate audio and subtitles and works via my Roku player!) I also have satellite TV (SKY), but they kill me with all the commercials! Netflix has NO commercials and costs about 10% of what I'm paying for the satellite crap! I love Netflix! ;-)

  • As Netflix (NFLX -4.2%) has another down day, CFO David Wells proclaims customers who cancelled their subscriptions last year due to displeasure with Netflix's price hike are rejoining the service, and that rejoining subscribers (those who left a year ago or less) amount to 1/3 of new subscriptions. Of course, that might also be a sign of slowing first-time subscriber adds. Separately, Netflix is rolling out a revamped web video player.  [View news story]
    I think Netflix is a great product at a exceptional price ... but I still wish I had sold at $304 (or anything close!).... ;-(

  • Gordon Gekko is coming to Latin America. Netflix (NFLX) announces a deal with 20th-Century Fox (NWS, NWSA) that gives it Latin streaming rights for 24, Prison Break, and four other TV shows, as well as a set of classic films that includes Wall Street. Netflix has lined up many Latin American content partners (I, II), but its Q1 international subscriber and profit forecasts disappointed investors.  [View news story]
    We can only hope!!! ;-)

    I am using Netflix here in Panamá and it has just lately gotten "fully functional" via my Roku player!
