Netflix to Quadruple Blu-ray Selection
In this article about Netflix success, we found a nugget regarding their Hidef Disc plans.
Chief financial officer Barry McCarthy said today that Netflix will add as many as 1,500 Blu-ray titles to its existing 400 titles this year as customers ditch Toshiba’s discontinued HD DVD format and converge onto a Sony’s Blu-ray format. He said he didn’t know what effect more Blu-ray titles would have on earnings.
“It seems apparent that content will cost us more,” McCarthy said. “Whether we raise prices will be entirely a function of churn, subscriber acquisition costs and gross margins.”
I think most people will just be happy if Netflix keeps enough copies on hand to satisfy demand.
