But if they can keep/grow subscriber numbers only offering them the content they have the highest margins on, wouldn't they want to?

I don't think so, certainly not when it comes to "keep".

The only real incentive here for them is to keep revenue growing. If that's best done by a mix of self-produced content and licensed content, that's what they're going to do.

Plus, producing content is pretty damned expensive, isn't it? It's not obvious to me that the margins would be higher with self-produced content in the first place. Or at least, it seems like something that would be true or not depending on the specific content, and not true as a rule one way or the other.

The odd thing about this is that Netflix made a token effort of adding Welles' Touch of Evil and The Stranger to its service (presumably so The Other Side of the Wind wouldn't feel so alone!).
Which version of The Stranger is up on there?
