Netflix wants to become cable TV service
October 16 , 2013
Netflix has proven that people have the option of watching their favorite TV shows even after they have already been broadcasted. The company is now talking to US pay-TV companies in order to acquire the on-demand video service.
It's a good idea for Netflix to strike this deal with the US market since the company is generally being seen as a rival to pay-TV in the country.
However, the cable providers have several things to worry about. They haven't expressed their comfort regarding the technology that Netflix uses in order to stream its content in a smooth manner; cable providers are also concerned about the arrangement competing with the rest of their offerings.
