Its just going to be a matter of time before @netflix starts producing movies
I am sure you have heard of the billion dollar Netflix / EPIX deal. Steve Swasey, VP of corporate communications at Netflix, recently told Fast Company that “The future really is streaming.” As we all know, the key to this battle is who can stream first? That little bit of exclusive time margin is going to drive the winner in the industry. Interestingly enough Blockbuster was able to broker a deal where they get new release dvds first before Netflix and other online portals by 30 days, hence this Netflix / EPIX deal.
I have always been a big fan of Netflix and their ability to push to the boundaries. I am just waiting until they start producing the next Wire, Entourage, or Avtar……just watch, I am sure it will happen.
BTW, I do have a netflix account where I order movies and stream, and also just opened a Redbox account, which is extremely convenient – they need to merge.
