- Netflix is the biggest player in vod and they are dying? I don't believe that. other large companies have seen the value of netflix services and are trying to compete. that is healthy. i do see the content war heating up but it is far too soon to declare winners. Hollywood is great and making money. who's to say they won't start selling rights to their content to all the big players? more money for Hollywood and happier consumers.
Sounds like this article is based more off the authors personal preferences. even labeling Google as an advertising company...Nov 25, 2012

- The fatal flaw of his reasoning is assuming that Netflix customers want primarily movies.
Most Netflix subscribers I know are cord cutters looking for quality TV shows.
Albeit studio controlled, TV is easier to monetize via subscription (ala HBO and the rest of high end content) and/ or ad rev.Nov 25, 2012
- They tried that a few years ago with Red Envelope Media. They put out some damn good stuff, but it was still closed.Nov 25, 2012
- Hollywood has all the power? The Pirate Bay might disagree with Armando Kirwin on that. I'm not necessarily endorsing getting everything for free, but the draconian shift in the distribution channels and pricing can largely be attributed to piracy. Big Content was forced to adjust, and thus the consumer market was changed forever.
It's an ongoing process of evolution for content providers. Shoot, even HBO is starting to bend. Offering non-bundled service in Europe is likely a trial run for what is to come. Nov 25, 2012
