Netflix could be a frenemy rather than foe

As Disney squares up to take on Netflix's streaming dominance, it would do well to learn how to make friends.

Is this why the Murdochs are making a mistake with their break up of 21st Century Fox (which could come any day)? Regarding Netflix as the enemy, as they have long treated Apple, Google and now Facebook, the Murdochs at 21st Century Fox (and News Corp) may be making another empire-changing mistake. Netflix is changing and the change asks the questions why haven’t the Murdochs caught on?

One thought on “Netflix could be a frenemy rather than foe

    This is why we are being given a slow NBN to keep the likes of Netflix and movie downloads at bay in favour of Rupert Murdoch cable TV. Fortunately Foxtel is losing subscribers at a fast rate.

    For Rupert Murdoch all is not lost, the government stumps up taxpayer funds on one pretext or another to make Rupert happy, so come next election the NewsCrap media will support that seriously flawed LNP Malfeasance Turnbull and his gaggle of no talent front bench.
