But will Hollywood let Netflix get to where it says users want to go? Netflix is putting itself at the mercy of the MPAA and so far the MPAA wants to see Netflix die. By betting its future on streaming, Netflix just handed its fate over to the Hollywood studios.
I can see Hollywood eventually raising the price of content licensing for Netflix to a point that forces Netflix to essentially price itself out of business. I would imagine Hollywood was quite happy about Netflix's recent customer losses due to their last price hike, and would love to do more to "help."
You mean mythical loses like the mythical 60% price hike.
Of course, I still fail to understand why Hollywood wants to cut off a legitimate media distribution outlet for their content. As long as the price of watching content legally continues to climb, the more piracy becomes a viable alternative.
As I stated Hollywood tried ot kil off tv, cable tv, and the VCR because they were "threats" to their bottom line. Hollywood being retarded towards new technology is nothing new.
