It's fine with me that he doesn't have more money to offer the studios, since that money ultimately has to come from me. And while WatchNow is a nice add-on, I don't mind waiting a day or two for a DVD to arrive.

It would be interesting to know more about what those "percentage of revenue" figure mean. What formula does he use to divide my $18 between streaming vs. DVD? And the more interesting question is - what is the relative profitability of streaming vs. DVD? How much cheaper (if at all) is it to deliver a two-hour movie over WatchNow than by physical DVD?

Then why is Netflix charging an extra $1 per month for Blu-Ray users, but not charging an extra premium for Streaming users? I'd love to turn of streaming on my account if I could save a buck a month.

(I know they don't charge extra for streaming since they want to move people to that technology, I just asked it to make a point.)

Interesting interview. I would have liked to hear, though, is how the upcoming caps on internet traffic from the major isp's will affect Netflix streaming.

I'd be curious to learn what percentage of my monthly bill goes to pay for streaming. (In fact it goes to pay for other people's streaming, since I rarely use that feature.)
