It would make sense that someone would want to cross sell all of their subscribers so many more things that netflix doesnt have. I say within 3 months there is a serious offer. Maybe blockbuster,or yahoo, or some big media or video game company. Maybe Yahoo! Yeah...I could see yahoo or some other big internet ginat wanting this co. It makes so much sense to cross sell their huge subscriber base.
Hastings has a math background and obviously is a fairly creative thinker to come up with the concept of a dvd by mail service. Not sure exactly how he got himself elected to the MSFT board.
That being said MSFT will probably not buy this company as there are zero synergies. I would think CMCSA or BBY would be the most likely candidates...need the abililty to use NFLX's sub base and cross sell.
