MC2 Post 1123 Going After the Best Next Media Format Streaming

Netflix's 60 % Price Hike Went into 

Effect Yesterday

(MC2 was off-line)


What IF FUD 3.0: 

What Windows Taught Cable Companies 
 DELAYS Streaming.

Someone Has To Stop Netflix, Right?

Someone Had to Stop Linux, Right?

Someone Had to Stop Napster, Right?

Bob Dylan Tried to sing some sense into our consciousness but we just weren't listening.

The Times, he said, Are a-Changing.

Media is evolving.  And that, to holders of the Old and Used-To-Be Profitable models are running scared again.

Except for the Youthful, nobody likes change.


Newspapers are dead.

Network "Newscasters" are goose-step marching closer 
 and closer to the edge of a cliff.

Books, because of the save by Amazon's Kindle has landed on solid grown with two very steady feet.

But Cable Televison Broadcasters, with their over-inflated profit margins, can't smell the Starbucks coffee brewing.

The bible warned us about asses kicking against the pricks of annoyance. 

The New Poster Child of this Annoyance is Netflix.  With A Very Big Red Target.

And This New Media of Streaming TV and Movies, wants to

(gasp!)  Drop the Old Medium of DVD's where they will eventually end up, in the trash heap of history.

Meanwhile the Cable Companies wants to reinforce the notion: 

that this move to New Media Is 

Going to Cost You.

Netflix suffers major setback with loss 
of Starz content

Starz Entertainment has ended contract renewal negotiations with Netflix. When the agreement expires on February
28, 2012, Starz will cease to distribute its content on the Netflix streaming platform.

Netflix is also trying to spin this in the best way possible, telling Reuters that it will take the money (reportedly between
$200 million and $300 million) that it had “earmarked for Starz renewal next year and spend it with other content
providers to maintain or even improve the Netflix experience.”
