  • Amazon Looks To Disrupt Streaming Video... Again [View article]
    Netflix did that because they felt other companies would be hesitant to put Netflix on their devices, there may be truth to that considering Netflix is on the Apple Tv, unlike Amazon Prime, which competes with Apple in the tablet arena.

    The Walking Dead finale had 15 million people, and Netflix has exclusive streaming rights for it.

    Very few people have 4k tvs, 4k streaming would require a lot of bits. And Netflix is already looking ahead to 4k, some of House of Cards was shot in 4k.

  • Amazon Looks To Disrupt Streaming Video... Again [View article]
    I don't see this device doing anything to Netflix because they would have to make Netflix available on the box for people to consider it, and their Kindle Fire captured 10% of the tablet market in July, and at its peak was nearly 22% of the market, and it appeared to had little to no affect on Netflix. The device could get more people buy the single $1.99 episodes.

    And Netflix would never make their own devices, they say companies, Apple in particular, would be less willing to have Netflix on their platform if they competed directly.

    On one hand Netflix could cripple the device if they didn't support it. On the other hand if they weren't on it and it was popular, Amazon would have leverage over them.

  • WSJ: Amazon launching streaming set-top for holidays [View news story]
    How is Samsung Google's biggest threat when people say Samsung's default apps/services are bad. Amazon doesn't even have some"popular" apps on their store, not surprisingly Gmail or YouTube.

    I wonder how this would affect Amazon's ability to be on other set-top boxes, specifically the Apple TV.

  • Netflix Looks For Partners Among U.S. Cable Operators [View article]
    If they got a large company with 20+ million customers, Directv or Comcast, the volume could potentially be worth giving up the $2-$3 per sub.

  • Is Netflix Better Than LoveFilm? [View article]
    I think the have the rights to, they are on some Tivo boxes, but you may be right about some companies not wanting them on the cable boxes. But I don't think the companies have the right to pull the deals, I specifically remember when Viacom fought with Directv and they pulled all the videos from their websites, but the stuff on Hulu and Netflix was still up.

  • Netflix flies higher as Icahn ponders his windfall [View news story]
    People said that when Netflix initially started, people said that when Netflix went head to head with Blockbuster, people said that when Redbox came, people said that when they started streaming, people said that after the quiwkster decision, what changed now?

    Blockbuster was a good business initially they just got greedy, made horrible mistakes and never took Netflix seriously. Also it never looked forward, something Netflix has done well. Netflix wanted to partner and even suggested being sold to them for 50 Million, that was probably a mistake looking back...

  • Netflix: The One Metric Nobody Is Watching [View article]
    Im only 18 so Im part of the same generation as you, or even young than you. But if you take a poll between people that pirate and people that use Netflix, not including other services just Netflix, the Netflix side would be larger. Netflix has been on the record for saying that Netflix lowers piracy, the top tv show episodes on the pirate bay aren't on Netflix yet/ever. 6 of the ten most pirated shows aren't on Netflix.

    Go buy a DVD, pay 1 month of cable, or go to the movies, all 3 of these options cost more than 1 month of Netflix, in the case of cable nearly one year of Netflix is cheaper than one month of cable.

    That may work for you but that won't be the thing that kills NFLX, not every torrent file is a good quality, or it might not even be the movie you wanted. And it is harder to watch something on a phone, or tablet, even television than a subscription service. Lastly people don't want to be bothered with downloads anymore, most people don't have a fast internet connection, and waiting 30+ minutes doesn't make sense when you could finish one episode of a sitcom.
