    Brb bio.

    Pros: it would give Apple fanboys an erection lasting more than 4 hours leading to medical complications

    Cons: it makes no sense. Apple just sunk massive cash on production already, and they’re not that desperate.

      Well it is a public company, and people like Icahn most likely hold like billions in Netflix. Netflix is doing well right now, but things can get tougher (competition, market downturn etc.), and at that time if there are any positives in selling to Apple, Hastings and co will have to hold off against Icahn and the likes.

      The point is, if and when the going gets tough, it won't be just Hasting's call.

    • It’s called a hostile takeover. Reed would not have a choice

      Netflix has defense in place for that kind of attack. Not Apple has money for it.

      We don’t care about Netflix.

    I don’t see it happening. Even though Apple has the money, paying 100 odd billions to make few hundred millions ( NFLX profit) every year would never be justified. Even with the combined power of the brand and the network effect, I don’t see the benefits increasing beyond a billion dollars a year. No way that’s happening.
