Netflix’s $8 Billion Content Budget to Fund 700 TV Shows and Movies
Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) already produced enough content in 2017 for people to rack up 50 billion viewing hours for the January-to- December period. But the company wants to release even more content in 2018.
Content rules when it comes to subscribers, because they naturally gravitate toward the streamers with the best content.
With Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Apple, and (soon) Disney (NYSE:DIS) on its heels, Netflix is smart to ramp up its content game, as a way to keep its current subscribers interested while luring in new subscribers.
Why It Makes Perfect Sense for Netflix and Amazon to Buy Up Movie Theaters
Netflix (NFLX) , or Action Alerts Plus holding Amazon (AMZN) , will buy a national chain of movie theaters, busting the entire tickets, concessions, new movie release paradigm.
The theater is not dead, it just has not evolved to today’s market, and the only way it can is with M&A from outside.
The new model will be an incremental subscription and it will be super-powered by data, mobile apps and a combination of owned and leased content. The big screen will turn into an experience again.

OPINION: We Need To Shut Bitcoin And All Other Cryptocurrencies Down. Here’s Why.
Last week I wrote an article on illicit cryptomining – how hackers are sneaking cryptocurrency transaction processing software onto corporate networks, personal computers, and other devices. I attempted to raise the alarm, calling this threat the most dangerous of 2018.
I didn’t go far enough.
Upon deeper reflection, the implications of illicit cryptomining are profoundly frightening. Because this type of cyberattack is ‘relatively’ benign – for certain definitions of ‘relatively’ – it’s positioned to run amuck, taking over computers, networks, data centers, and cloud environments around the world.
