Re: Almost there
The reason why the deal is 350 million in the first place is because Disney KNOWS Netflix can make that much money and isn't going to give contents unless:
1) They gain total control of Netflix
2) They drain Netflix's profits dry and find another business to suck blood out of.
Disney still needs to profit from their DVD and Blu-Ray discs so giving Netflix a lenient stick without charging them that much would mean the usual DVD and Blu-ray shoppers who buy Disney films will all end up jumping on the Netflix bandwagon and they make most of the revenues from those discs alone in terms of merchandise.
