The Netflix business model is bad news for indie games

The Netflix model doesn't work for video games. Neither does the Spotify plan, the HBO Go ecosystem or the Amazon Prime Video marketplace.

But, when it comes to paying content creators, current subscription models just don't make sense. Especially for indie games.
