Netflix & Competition

Ramin Setoodeh talked with Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos about the service's growth and impact on Hollywood. Jack Hough sees trouble ahead for Netflix given its spending (note: behind Barron's paywall), with $16 billion in content commitments coming, but Joe Nocera disagrees. Lisa Richwine and Anjali Athavaley note that cable operators are increasingly aligning with Netflix. Of course, there's the opposite Disney move, and Peter Csathy says Netflix should worry about Disney's OTT plans, while Rich Greenfield believes Disney has an uphill battle ahead. Paul Bond wonders if Disney can make a "Netflix of sports" out of an ESPN streaming service.
