    NFLX Purchasing original programming now

    This a major deviation from their business model. Now most of you buffoons will say so what, but to me its more confirmation that its model is broken......

    • "House of Cards". How apropos.

      Honestly, as I have written prior, getting exclusive access to content is the only hope we see for NFLX's survival. But our advice was rather they should go after classic content...

      sort of like what Ted Turner did with TCM. (Which by the way is seeking to direct stream as well.)

      The production / marketing costs of new content will kill them. And now going toe to toe with real Content Producers is not going to win NFLX any friends the next time they seek to renew contracts.

    • i asked my wife who is not involved in stocks at all what she thought of it she said it means their current market is probably saturated and they have to move into different areas......and you clowns dont get it at all....

    • This is beyond stupid.

      Why, why, why would RH be so dumb...? No...arrogant is right.

      They can't compete with the networks. This is jumping out of the lake and into the ocean with the sharks.

      If this is the ONLY way RH can think of to generate any cash, NFLX is DESPERATE beyond reason.

      Smart people will sell on this news...but I won't be surprised if that doesn't happen.

    • It tells me three things.

      1) Reed Hastings is taking an adversarial position against the major media empires. Not good for netflix.

      2) The cost of these original content is high and it will hit netflix bottom line.

      3) Success is getting to Hastings head, he is becoming arrogant, bidding against major studios for original content.

      You be the judge.

        CRIMINAL CEO'S LIKE REED HASTINGS DO THIS:

        When I play Railroad Tycoon III, I often send my company deep into debt to get cash on hand to buy back shares, effectively increasing my ownership of the company as an absolute percentage. Then I issue massive DILUTION WITH FREE OPTION GRANT PRINTING PRESS or DIVIDENDS s until my company goes bankrupt, and start a new company.

        It's a way to shuttle money borrowed against a company's assets into my personal bank account at no risk to me........become a BILLIONAIRE IN FEW YEARS


        3. To Benefit Executives
        Many executives get the bulk of their compensation in the form of stock options. As a result, buybacks can serve a goal: as stock options are exercised, buyback programs absorb the excess stock and offset the dilution of existing share values and any potential reduction in earnings per share.

        By mopping up extra stock and keeping EPS up, buybacks is a convenient way for executives to maximize their own wealth. It's a way for them to maintain the value of the shares and share options. Some executives may even be tempted to pursue share buybacks to boost the share price in the short term and then sell their shares. What's more, the big bonuses that CEOs get are often linked to share price gains and increased earnings per share, so they have an incentive to pursue buybacks even when there are better ways to spend the cash or when the shares are overvalued.

        Hastings Behavior Review
        I thought it necessary to once again rehash Hastings record of behavior that seems to be un noticed in the media and investment community.....

        1) Colluded with WMT to conspire to corner DVD market that has resulted in a pending class action suit.

        2) Hired actors at Canadian streaming launch to pose as enthusiastic fans of streaming.

        3) Borrowed $200M in debt to buy back stock only to facilitate insiders and himself to sell their stock.

        4) This is my opinion. Has over stated & mislead investors on the extent NFLX has streaming subs by portraying stats that 60% of subs stream 15 min or more rather than disclose paying streaming subs. The motivation here is grant NFLX a higher P/E than its peers like CSTR.
