"I can't speak to this particular issue, but Netflix is generally acquiring hardly any new content, now that they've largely cornered the movie rental market.  While there used to be about 60 new releases acquired every week, now there…"

"Jerry,   I believe that you are missing the major points here.   The studios do not like Netflix.  Netflix buys x amount of discs from the studio or their distributor.  Then Netflix allows as many people to watch the x amount of…"

"I think you make a good point.  Netflix does buy a lot of disks and they pay a fee for the right to buy them.  It's not like Netflix goes to Blockbuster and asks for 5000 disks.   IAC, if the studios were worried, they just…"

"I don't fault the studios, I fault Netflix.  They have more clout than we do.  But I wouldn't put bankruptcy as a high standard of protection for criticism.  They can have many reasons for money problem including bad…"

"Support them if you wish, I won't. If the major studios would stop relying on archaic and outdated models they might make more money. Instead they continue to deny and fight new technologies that could and would make them more money. They need…"

"and we probably shouldn't be saying "crippled." That's so 1950s."

"Netflix doesnt have a say in how the studios release movies to distributors. If you find paying for premium channels on cable to be a better deal then Netflix, then by all means you should stop wasting your money on a Netflix…"

"yeah, good point. I guess they are "crippled DVDs" or "crippled discs" rather than "crippled movies""
