  • Samsung Galaxy S5 Could Flop, So Watch Out [View article]
    You can't call the S4 a flop after the first month, because the phone then went on to ship 20M units in 68 days, about 1 month less then it took the S3 to reach that number, you didn't present all the facts. And considering the press and the carrier support the phone will get, I don't think it will flop.

  • FCC chairman suggests Netflix could pay ISPs to improve service quality [View news story]
    The person who said this quote was incredibly biased, and with your logic power companies should charge Apple money because there are hundreds of millions devices out in the in US, created by Apple, that collectively take up a lot of power.

  • Danger Zone: Netflix [View article]
    @Vick

    NFLX is nowhere near 70% of US broadband streaming, currently Netflix and YouTube combine for 50%

    They do that with streaming too, it is an easy way to get some customers to resign.

  • Netflix Signs Deal With Walt Disney Co.: More Fuel For Momentum Growth [View article]
    Very few ISPs do that, if it was an issue for all of them then they all would limit your speeds. Also they could upgrade their equipment and this wouldn't be a problem, they are basically their customers don't eat too much food, we might run out, instead of going to buy some more food.

    And NFLX has kept this artificial scarcity in mind, you could limit how much mbs your stream takes up if your ISP has a limit.

    Please don't listen to Comcast or Verizon saying that they can't support streaming internet, that is a ploy for you to pay more.

  • Dissecting the Netflix-Marvel superhero TV deal [View news story]
    You are out of your mind if you don't think this will be heavily marketed, for a tv series, considering Netflix already has a big marketing budget. And since Netflix will have some of these Marvel movies on their service thanks to a separate Disney deal it wouldn't be hard to convince a fan to watch shows.

    And just last week Agents of the Shield had a series low of 6.63 million viewers, a number Netflix would welcome, with some minor superheroes that apparently no one is interested in.

    Tell me how popular the second rate super hero Iron Man was until the movie came out.

    And a Google/YouTube system would use advertising, something that is not for Hulu. And worst of all no big company wants to do a media deal with Google, Apple, Microsoft tor whoever because they are too big. The Apple Television would of came out yesterday if the companies wanted to do a deal with them.

  • The Madness Of Netflix Investors [View article]
    I think what a lot of Netflix bulls aren't grasping is the the company is dumping money from its profitable us business, and getting a gigantic head start against Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsft and everyone else internationally. So they are sacrificing short term profits for long term growth.

    I would agree with you about the rising content cost but their US streaming contribution profit has increased in the mist of these rising content cost. Also Netflix isn't trying to have every single movie or show, they had a LOT of filler content in the early days, but they are removing some those B-Movies with each new deal they get.

    A perfect example is Viacom raising its prices and Netflix just dropping them and getting some Disney content exclusively.

    After Netflix raised the rates they drooped to 23.6 mil US subs., now they have 31.09 mil subs.

    They was lost 800K subs one quarter, then gained almost 7.5 mil subs in 2 years.

    That's good suffering.

    I think it's going to be a up hill battle to get people to pay for YouTube videos, no matter how high quality they are.

  • Heard during Comcast's earnings call [View news story]
    This is a corporate way of saying that CMCSA or NFLX is asking for too much in the negotiations.

  • Netflix Is Vulnerable To Future Competition From Those With Own Device Platforms [View article]
    That's because you initially had to have a device to get ebooks every platform had you locked in. You could make a case that Amazon's eBook presence has grown since they released a Kindle app for iPhone Android etc.

  • Netflix toying with financing movies, doing joint online/theater launches [View news story]
    Why don't they just release the movies in theater, then release them on Netflix and DVD at the same time?
