Seems like a good move for NFLX. Questions might be how long will it take to get up and running and how much revenue sharing will NFLX have to give to MSFT?
Wbd = leveraging global media
It would be ironic if Netflix eventually gets bought out or merges with legacy media like WBD, Disney, or Comcast. They're already brokering so many advertising, content, licensing, and partnership deals with them that it might as well happen one day.
@Blab Blah in what way would that benefit conglomerate copyright owners like dis, or wbd who have their own platforms, that unlike nflx merely compliment their businesses?

Why would anyone merge with a platform that liscences their content?

Maybe if we lived in a world where dream scenarios for nflx reward all but not happening.

Bottom line nflx is EXTREMELY overvalued, stuck in a pickle with no exit other than 40pct further loss in valuation than buyout from private equity.

They make around 60pct of what wbd will make on a bad year - seems there is no way for them to make more just spend more on new content.

@qwerty11 I wouldn't doubt Netflix's execution. How many companies were able to launch globally all at once? Netflix did in 2016.
