Netflix’s troubles

Filed under: Digital Living — Jag @ 5:06 am

If only I had shorted the stock at the same time as I wrote about Netflix’s troubles… I’d be laughing all the way to the bank. Looks like Netflix’s ultimate strategy is to vertically integrate, and be a content creator as well as distributor. They’re not going to distribute as widely as they did in the DVD era, but they’re going to finance unique content. In other words, they’re aiming to become a new HBO clone.

suggested a month ago that this was the only option available to them. Good to know Reed Hastings follows my blog 🙂
