I think the CEO of Netflix has a dream.

More like a fantasy.

I seriously don't see them ever letting that happen.

If they go into on-demand IPTV themselves they will be in direct competition to Netflix, not partnering with them.

Re: I think the CEO of Netflix has a dream.

The only way I can see anything like this happening is if Cable lets netflix provide 'back catalog' TV and 'crap catalog' movies to fill in existing On-Demand services. It would have to be cheap, and Cable would have to be able to monetize it.

Otherwise forget it. Content distributors (in general) hate netflix.

It will happen.

Netflix' library, as poor as it is, is vastly superior to anything your average cableco / isp has, and Netflix has most of the advantage in negotiating for content.

Netflix is *the* VOD brand - Apple, Amazon, Walmart, Echostar, Redbox, MSN, Yahoo and Google show absolutely no signs or intention of competing. Only Hulu really has any chance of being noticed, if they're allowed to, and they will follow Netflix' lead to team up with Cable.

If Net Neutrality stands, Netflix will have to partner with CableCo to assure that their product gets enough bandwidth, cap-free. But no one can afford to wait to find out how NN turns out, so Netflix is engineering a solution that works without violating NN.

"Where did you wear it?"

So now we have the ability to instantly broadcast where and when we're using condoms.

How long before this gets implemented into Facebook?

What is so unique about the Netflix business model to keep them dominant in ipVOD?

Re: Is Netflix the next TiVo?

Nothing. The barrier to entry for potential competitors is minimal.
