  • Netflix releases first original film  [View news story]
    If Netflix lied this whole time like you alleged, why would they pick this quarter to suddenly come clean? Wouldn't they keep the lie going? They missed but they weren't lying the whole time.

    They were rumored to be paying 200M a year for the Epix deal they let lapse, I doubt they will spend that much for all of their original films every year, they are paying around 10-15 million per film and paid Sandler 200M for 4 films. If, and I stress if, they get equivalent viewing while spending less, and these films will be exclusive, how is that different from the Epix deal?

  • Amazon Sticks It To The Competition: Will Stop Selling Apple And Google Streaming Boxes  [View article]

    Would it be right for Apple and Google to kick Amazon's apps from their app store because they don't use their apps? That's the same logic

    I think Netflix is their largest customer so it doesn't make any sense to do that. And couldn't Netflix just switch to Google or Microsoft?

    They break out subs. that are paying and non-paying (on the free trial, bad credit card etc.) what else could they do? They don't even premiere their original shows at the end of the quarter, that way it would be easy for them to juice new subs. by releasing a show a week before the end of the quarter.

    House of Cards premiered Feb. 27
    Daredevil April 10
    Wet Hot American Summer July 31
    And the burden of proof is on you, can't make a claim and then tell someone to disprove your claim to back up your claim.

    Why are you presuming that when Jobs didn't care about market share anytime for the Mac?

    I don't trust these app makers, no one has been able to make the 2nd hit. So far Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Draw Something, Farmvillie, etc. have all had high highs and then steep falls.

  • In new partnership, HBO gets to 'Sesame Street' first  [View news story]
    Apple wants to be in the TV market, but they don't want to have to spend 75-80 Billion, not to mention that's only one of the main players. They would still have to write a check to Disney, Fox, Universal and Viacom

    I think people would rather pay that than pay $800 up front for a phone. Even if you save more in the long run.

    yep, the media companies want you to pay $10 for Netflix, $10 for Hulu, $100 for Amazon (annually), $20 for Sling, $15 for HBO, and $50 for basic cable. They have no incentive to give Apple everything for $40

    Right now Apple, and Google for that matter, needs the content companies more than the content companies need the tech guys. If the channels don't get the perfect deal from Apple it doesn't matter because they are still getting checks from DirecTV, Comcast, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Sling, Sony, etc. And if the tech companies don't get the perfect deal, the one the user wants, the services will be bad and people won't use them; like Sling TV.

  • Hulu weighs adding ad-free option  [View news story]
    Hulu may get some heat for pricing that service at HBO/Showtime territory when they aren't on that level yet.
