Netflix Mulls Cable Partnership


CEO Reed Hastings of Netflix has reportedly been meeting with cable companies to discuss partnerships that would involve tying online video streaming into existing cable services. According to sources familiar with the conversations who spoke to Reuters, Netflix may be added into a subscriber’s existing cable program, if some of the talks prove fruitful. A Netflix spokesperson declined to speak on talks the company has had with cable providers. Netflix has widely been seen as a threat to the traditional cable industry.
