    Netflix's power in the streaming industry is waning: Discussions with A&E broke down because Netflix "was seeking increased exclusivity"

    Netflix's power in the streaming industry is waning: Discussions with A&E broke down because Netflix "was seeking increased exclusivity" — something A&E was reluctant to grant, says Tim Kenneally at The Wrap. When Netflix began its streaming video service, it was essentially the only game in town; now, with legitimate competition from other streaming-video services like Amazon Instant Video, studios are much warier about licensing their premium content to one service exclusively. This is exactly what happened with Starz earlier this year, which said it pulled its content from Netflix "to protect the premium nature of our brand." And with Epix and A&E having followed Starz's lead, this probably won't be the end of Netflix's exclusivity woes.
