I don't think NF can keep up the low price all you can stream model forever.
Yes .. I think another problem is the timeframe it takes as well as the money, in order to secure the rights to stream anything other that documentaries / TV Shows and lower budget films .. by the time a real hit gets to NF streaming, most that want to see it, have seen it ..
And the bidding to secure a hit, such as Hulu's acquisition of "Empire" exclusively just drives pricing up generally .. NF wants to see itself as HBO .. original programing it can license and a selection of streaming material ..
However, if somehow NF could, let's say, begin to offer a film like "Mockingjay" or "Gone Girl" at or near disk release, for, let's say a dollar or two per 24-48 hour view, the option of PPV on an individual title would be a game changer .. NF has the customer base, they have your CC on file, I don't see why offering PPV on individual films in addition to the monthly "All you can eat" plan might not actually work .. I've always thought that what's holding back single title, new release PPV is cost .. get it down low enough, people will use it ..
