Netflix Secures Streaming Deal With DreamWorks →
parislemon: While the cable companies may not be directly involved here, they should be really worried about deals like this. These types of deals will keep coming, and over time, the value of cable television service will continue to fall. I just wonder how long it will be until HBO goes direct?
