And no doubt you will say that every time they increase their prices. Netflix still represents incredible value for money and puts the pay tv providers to shame.

That's because they're in $20bn of debt Old Boy. Once prices rise to make the business model sustainable the dynamic will change.

They are also increasing their audience worldwide, which will increase their income substantially.

Not really, the emerging markets don’t have the GDP to support pricing at the same level as the UK/US. In some countries it’s barely £3 a month. Barely going to touch the sides of the $20bn. It also means they’re having to acquire more local rights in more markets - you can’t peddle US repeats into every country in the world and expect them to view it as a premium product.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The number of Netflix subscribers could fall with so many other streaming services seeking our custom over the coming months. Many of us have only a limited amount to spend on the media.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Netflix isn't going anywhere , that said it will find it far harder when other competing services launch and some of its popular content starts to get removed.

I expect to see prices rise further however pressure from competitors is also likely to force Netflix to explore other avenues of revenue for example advertising.
