    new entrants will quell NFLX growth

    While AMZN Prime and other services may not crush NFLX, they will likely keep NFLX subscriber growth at a minimum. As for Icahn, he has never bought a company outright that does not have cash flow and has said as much he doesn't intend to buy the company. Don't expect anybody else to step forward and pay $5 billion for no earnings and certainly not before the fiscal cliff is passed. There are only a small handful of co's with $5 billion to throw around to get no earnings.

    It would be far less expensive to just start a competing streaming service, and offer it for free. Than to spend $5 billion for NFLX. A company could offer a free service, keep it free for 3 years and take maybe a $1.5 billion hit on content costs over that time, and steal half or more of NFLX users. Than to go out and spend $5 billion up front for NFLX. Consider that.

    • I'll consider that you are an idiot. So many companies are drooling over 30 plus million subs you ignorant donkey. Facebook does not even have one paying customer. Hulu and amazon service stinks. 2013 will be Netflix year. You are dead wrong. Icahn knows his offer will be low compared to what the board would accept.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      WEDBUSH: Michael Pachter is only the Analyst who is speaking 90% truth on this NETFLIX scam loot Gang

      The accounting treatment of Netflix's media contracts makes many investors nervous. Quarterly SEC filings contain a section for "commitments and contingencies," where Netflix currently lists $5 billion in upcoming license payments, and this massive item doesn't show up on the balance sheet.

      Critics and skeptics often point to these obligations as a Sword of Damocles, hanging over the company's head, and sure to inflict mortal wounds when it falls down. Two billion dollars is due within the next year, and Netflix doesn't have that kind of cash on hand.

      This arrangement is often presented as a reason why larger companies with deeper coffers should buy Netflix. The global expansion program would surely falter if Netflix was suddenly hit by a $2 billion bill it couldn't pay.

      But Who need scamflix? for what?

      Netflix has no IP/No loyal customer base/ and it is $8 Fraud offering keeping customers on board plus will never turn profit and only the ultimate scam for MF proven criminal thug Reed Hastings scam gang to keep looting billions.
