1. What do you think if NFLX uses shareholders's money to buy back what its CEO sold?
2. What do you think if NFLX's cash positon declines quorter by quarter and begins to borrow money, at same time NFLX can't issue secondary shares because that makes no sense since NFLX keeps to buy back its own shares?
3. What do you think if those intentional medias try to misleading you by hiding bad news for the company?
4. What do you think if those big institutions know NFLX's stock price is well over price, but continue to pump up it price..
THE END IS NEAR.
RED HOT CRIME SCENE
THE GROWING GAP BETWEEN THE ORDINARY
PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AND THE ELITES
THE AMERICAN EMPIRE
AND THE NEW GLOBAL ELITE
Money is what drives this elite!! The lust for wealth; the lust for money - this is the common denominator for ALL members of the Davos Culture; the terms "liberal," "conservative," "secular," "religious," "Christian," "humanist" are all useless in "identifying" the members of this elite. Depending on the historical circumstance and the exigencies of the moment, the Davos Elite co-opts this or that label to "identify" itself; but the label is meaningless; it's merely a temporary mask or a momentary contrivance.
The very real truth is, the Davos Elite is not driven by principle; its only real concern centers around its own greedy, self-absorbed life-style and its preoccupation with piling up ever greater amounts of material wealth and worldly treasure. And for what purpose? - there is none! Remarkably, that's it: the accumulation of money! - that's its goal! There is nothing beyond that except an eerie and frightening emptiness - and then the grave! And though many in the Davos Elite preserve a certain front of "purpose" and "idealism" in their lives, there is nothing behind that "front" except a vacuum - a hollowness that resembles the emptiness of a body without a soul. Their idealism is nothing more than a subterfuge, a contrivance, a masquerade - an excuse for what really drives them, which is the actual process of wealth accumulation - which they presume is the measure of a man's worth. They are utterly blind to the contempt and loathing that ordinary people have for them - and completely oblivious to the disconnect that separates them from the masses; and that "disconnect" is growing! - especially as it relates to wealth accumulation.
Take the United States, for example, where four percent of the American population (approximately 3.8 million individuals and families) has in the past few decades managed to capture for itself through "restructuring," "free trade," "union busting," and unfettered immigration (which forces wages down) $452 billion in wages and salaries on an annual basis - the same as the annual wages and salaries of the bottom fifty-one percent (49.2 million individuals and families). And even this isn't enough; with each passing year more and more of this nation's wealth pours into their hands by "hook and by crook," much of which used to be held in the hands of the American middle class in the 1950s and '60s - and their is no sign that this phenomenon is abating.3

If you aren’t familiar with some of the inner workings of the film industry, here’s a basic primer of the current system. After a film is released in theaters, it is then released on DVD/Blu-ray and depending on the studio and the viewing window, to Pay-Per View, Redbox or Video-on-Demand. After the new-release window ends, bigger films go into what is called the first-run window, where they are then available on a premium cable channel like HBO, Showtime, Starz, etc. After this window, films are then dribbled down to basic cable, network television and so on.
Although Netflix’s Watch Instantly library is growing all of the time, one area where it really falls short is in new releases. This is not the case with Netflix’s DVD and Blu-ray rental-by-mail service, however. Netflix has a vast catalog of Watch Instantly films, but most of them are older releases and the most up-to-date content is usually by way of television, which is easier to license for more recent viewing.
The big exception in this area has been with Starz. Netflix was able to procure a deal with Starz to get movies (or Starz original broadcasts) as soon as they come to Starz subscribers. While Starz doesn’t have the first-run deals of the largest premium cablers like HBO, it does have some exclusive deals with Disney/Pixar and with a lot of Sony films.
Because Starz retained ownership of how it licensed its content digitally (that is, over the Internet), the company was then able to license that content to Netflix, giving Netflix access to its first-run content. It was a brilliant run around the system. Unfortunately, it also made the major studios pretty unhappy.
The current Starz deal expires in 2012 and it won’t be the same in the future. Instead, studios are now building more digital licensing agreements into their contracts with the premium cable outlets to avoid a Netflix-Starz scenario from happening again.
The only recourse for Netflix is to make deals directly with the studios, which is exactly what is happening with Relativity Media.

SAME CRIME SCENE
Similarity of Netflix to AOL:
It is interesting to compare Netflix’s current situation to AOL’s in 1999, as AOL arguably was facing a similar dilemma as Netflix does now. Netflix’s current business is being replaced by a technological advance, much in the same way AOL’s slow dial-up internet service was replaced by fast internet. Like AOL was in 1999 prior to its merger with Time Warner, Netflix does not own content or a delivery mechanism for its service. In 1999, AOL had the advantage of being a major internet portal and when they merged with Time Warner in 2000 they acquired content and a cable system with 13 million customers to go with AOL’s 20 million subscribers. The merger was supposed to have provided a national and international platform to distribute and promote Time Warner’s products and logically it seemed to make sense, but it didn’t work as envisioned. In January 2000, prior to the merger, AOL’s market cap was $163B. Recently it was $2.3B – less than 2% of its market cap 10 years earlier. As the AOL experience shows, it is not easy to transition a business in the face of stiff competition. AOL had the advantage of already being an internet service provider, so they weren’t entering a new business, and they had a subscriber base of over 20 million. With the Time Warner merger they gained content and a cable company with 13 million customers. At that point they had 33 million total customers, content, a cable company and a major internet portal. All AOL had to do was keep the 20 million dial-up subscribers and transition them to fast internet. But in spite of those advantages, in 10 years AOL’s subscriber base decreased from 20 million to about 5 million.

END AND BUST FACTS
The gradual progression away from physical DVDs to streaming content is also a shift in negotiating power to the content providers. The price point for a sale of a DVD is capped by the retail price, and Netflix can reuse the same DVD as many times as it wants, making it very profitable. It’s clear that non-physical, all digital content will not follow the same “first purchase doctrine” rules. Content providers demand a fee per each and every usage which will cut deeply into Netflix’s revenue model.
The blind spot in Reed’s model is the fact that he offers a service – not a product (the product belongs to the movie studios – Netflix is just a delivery method). This service is dependent upon the pipe into a person’s home. Too little bandwidth and the person won’t take advantage of the streaming upon which the future of Netflix is dependent.Also Bandwidth cap by ISP's kills streaming model for Netflix.
On the flip side – in a FTTH situation the person who runs the fiber will own the home. Nobody is going to run a fiber to a home that already has one. Netflix needs to partner with these broadband providers whenever possible – yet I see no planning on Reed’s end to engage these people.
An independent telco, municipality or other entity who runs FTTH has no incentive to work with Netflix. If Amazon or WalMart created or improved their Affiliate programs then these broadband providers would have incentive to work against Netflix. Drop Netflix and join Amazon’s service and get your first month of Amazon’s streaming service free plus $10 off your IPTV bill. Sign up for WalMart’s streaming service and get your first month free plus a $20 WalMart gift card. You get the idea.
If a similar service to Netflix arrives and this new service has put these partnerships in place – then that new service will eat Netflix’s lunch in the broadband providers service area. That new service could even come from BlockBuster. How ironic would that be?
I’m working on a couple of IPTV deployments and right now and Netflix will be part of those plans but a partnership with a new Netflix-type service provider that pays commissions to the operator or provides a widget on the TV could easily make Netflix obsolete.
WHY ANALYST CRIMINALS NOT MENTIONING ANY FACTS?
“Broadband companies could ignore neutrality and restrict the flow of NetFlix bits to protect their own video business, or surcharge NetFlix to be able to stream to our subscribers”
As arguments for Net Neutrality go, that says it all.
Unfortunately, it looks like the fix is in, since Congress has pretty much b!+ch-slapped the FCC on re-classifying broadband.
Sans Net Neutrality, the costs of implementing a vertical diversification strategy like streaming would likely have been prohibitively expensive for NetFlix.
Who’s managing the pipe?the broadband is only so broad, and the occasional dropouts you experience now as a result will only get worse as everything migrates to telco/cable and Bandwidth caps is destructive to Netflix Business model.
That’s the problem with companies who are solely dependent on others. If companies like Time Warner or Comcast wanted to drive Netflix out of business, they could do it in a heartbeat.
Time Warner and Comcast provide the bandwidth along with the cable service. If their OnDemand or PPV prices were to drop to $2 for new releases and $1 for older releases or even cheaper, people wouldn’t have the need for a Netflix or any other subscription service.
For me, don’t really need Netflix. I have a new Red Box Kiosk just down the street and rentals are $1.50 for a BLURAY!!
RED BOX AND NCR+BLOCKBUSTER KIOSK ARE THE FUTURE AND STREAMING CONTENT OWNERS ELIMINATE MIDDLE SERVICE PROVIDER TO PRESERVE THEIR PROFITS......................
FUTURE IS HBO/ESPN/STUDIOS not NETFLIX in streaming
Netflix is undoubtedly a bubble scam and Reed Hastings admits it in his presentation. Just segmenting a market and focusing on what looks like an underserved segment does not give you a right to make money….the DVD by mail logistics and recommendation engine are their real differentiation but with streaming taking over as they admit their market power is dying by the day. I hate this criminal Hastings , how he robbed shareholder cash to create a bubble for insider loot machine, and he just described his company’s demise in the presentation too. Streaming is actually Bust warrant for Netflix Business model
