And Dreamworks, of course, who not only have exclusive deals for their movies, but to also try to get Netflix to rescue their studio by pimping every single danged character who ever appeared in a DWA movie into a new Netflix Original Series.flyonthewall2983 wrote:They still have deals with Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Lucasfilm and The Weinstein Company, so I think they'll be okay.

Guess they wanted to go it alone, especially after Netflix customers complained that the StarzPlay movies were so much poorer quality encoding than the movies Netflix got from other sources (back when Netflix was selling HD as their big draw, and Starz was stuck in DVD-quality SD), which didn't improve relations between the two.Interesting you brought up Starz, because I'm wondering when they'll make a play for getting back in the online game again. They had a good thing going with Netflix, and it's still a little beyond me as to why they left.
We'd sure take 'em now, though.
