Netflix Reports Big Jump In Instant Streaming | paidContent
The fact that they announced a deal for HBO’s content is HUGE! While HBO still gets alot of day after buzz, its likely that more people will choose to get HBO content delayed via Netflix than pay the additional $10/mo just for their content and old movies.
My only concern is from the comment below by a reader
“makes movie convenience so simple that it trumps the effort to go get it via DL for free”
While I absolutely believe in convinience, I also believe that content creators shouldn’t have to compete with free on a price perspective, because the internet being what it is, eentually no one will want to pay for it.
