  • Netflix - Shares Are Entering 'Euphoria' Phase [View article]
    The letter to shareholders says that in the US they have 29.93 paid members and 31.09 total members.
    Internationally they have 8.08 paid members and 9.19 total members, keep in mind that they launched a new market in the Netherlands September 10th which may or may not inflate the total member numbers.

  • The New Kindle Fire Is Not Selling Well [View article]
    @Krusty don't let electronic giants fool you, just because something is sold out doesn't mean it was successful, they could of purposely limited the supply to create some artificial demand. The Microsoft Surface was initially sold out, and they wrote down almost 1 Billion on that.

  • Netflix Soars On Strong Report And Guidance [View article]
    I'm sure Google paid them for that, I doesn't do Netflix any good if you buy a Google device, which would explain why the promo ended so fast. Also during the call Nflx said most of those were existing customers.

  • Netflix: Dare To Short This Momentum Stock? 25% Downside Coming [View article]
    Google and Apple are already trying, but the content companies don't want to join them because they will become to powerful. Which is why Apple still hasn't released the Apple Television, and Google TV had no support from the media companies.

  • Netflix: Dare To Short This Momentum Stock? 25% Downside Coming [View article]
    I AM IN COLLEGE, I see RAs watching Netflix at the front desk. When I walk past dorms I see people searching for something to watch on Netflix. I hear people talking about watch they watched on Netflix in social media and in real life. I have heard people talk about putlocker I just hear more people talk about Netflix. And according to Alexa more people are going to Netflix than Putlocker.

    NFLX is ranked 27 in the US.
    Putlocker.to is ranked 17,355.
    putlocker.com is ranked 473.

    You are your "hundreds of friends" are part of the minority.

    You are proving my point you are saying that people could still use Google services on the Kindle, which would make Google money on a device Amazon sells for cost.

    What are you talking about? Amazon doesn't have a number 1 mobile os, browser, map service, video website, e-mail service, or Google, the number 1 website world wide. The difference between Google and Amazon is that like most other business Amazon needs you to BUY something to make money, Google just needs you to USE their services. That comparison was WAAAAYYYY off.

    I could agree with that, and I would say you are an anomaly, the stats show that 95% of people aren't using putlocker other than Netflix. A Twitter search for "Netflix College" shows that more people are talking about that than "putlocker".

    You can't compare the 2, there were fewer tablet owners back then not everyone that bought a Kindle was an existing tablet owner. Now a lot more people have Kindles or other tablets.

    The market that buys the Kindles don't rush out to get the latest and greatest. And does Amazon really need to upgrade their Kindles? Are you going to buy more stuff from AMZN with a Kindle Fire from 2013, then you would from a previous model? Last the Kindle Fire HDX has a horrible name, and to see the difference between that model and the previous model you have to read a good chunk of information, and scroll down about 1/4 of the page, they didn't help themselves out with that one. Most interested parties would get the cheapest one and leave.

    I didn't say that you can't pirate Netflix shows, Arrested Development had some high privacy numbers initially, I was saying that most college age kids don't pirate regularly, they pirate more than other generations but not all of them do. And with a cheap/free legal alternative can curb piracy 1.Like how this article claims music piracy is down 80% thanks to services like Spotify. And a similar study in Norway 2.

    And also that generation has been characterized as being spoiled, wanting everything now. With piracy you have to wait for the download to finish, unlike Netflix where you can watch a show instantly.

    And I agree with you that college kids don't have much money but that doesn't mean they don't buy Netflix they don't order cable, they don't go to sit down restaurants, they eat the cheaper fast food instead. And besides most college students aren't fiscally responsible anyway, they have the newest video game and the latest iPhone even though they have limited income.

    Nick
    I would disagree, some campuses forbid you from torrents in the internet service agreement, or block them all together. College kids could share accounts to save money, but at least on my campus Netflix is common.

  • Netflix strikes U.K. deal with Nokia; JPMorgan lifts PT [View news story]
    Possibly but it is rumored that Netflix could lose their deals if they are bought, which would make the acquisition even more difficult.

  • Netflix strikes U.K. deal with Nokia; JPMorgan lifts PT [View news story]
    The Microsoft Nokia deal hasn't gone through, and Netflix had a similar deal with Google, so no.

    And Microsoft has more problems they should take care of first.
