Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Message Board

    good question!

    good question.. but I would disagree with your zero barriers to entry. The subscriber base and their content contracts and delivery technology are not easily replicated. Therefore, there is an entry barrier.

    How ever, no one is asking the question - what is the cost of their content? At $8/month, can they really afford it? I suspect not!

    nflx is mainly a tablet play. For home viewing, I found nflx streaming to be less than high quality for larger size TVs.. "buffering" message is annoying. The satellite providers (and probably cable providers) can easily provide the movies with much better quality. of course $8/month is an atractive price point.

    I submit that nflx has to increase the price to $10 or $14 range.. in order to justify this valuation.. but if that causes subscriber abandonment, they have an even more serious problem..

    I am very surprised that people are not seeing the obvious attempt to mainpulate the stock.. with these silly news releases... as you correctly said.. who are the idiots who are buying?

    Am I wrong on this opinion?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
