    "Apple and Google were back making waves in the television world last week, with reports suggesting they were renewing efforts to use technology to transform the box in your living room.

    But Netflix already has.

    Netflix knows a little about transformation. It's worth remembering that it managed to go from the largest user of the Postal Service to the largest source of download traffic on the Web in the span of months, not years."

    Netflix is doing well in this market, a good service at a good price. I can't imagine Netflix is going anywhere anytime soon.

    Netflix says it will produce original documentaries, stand-up comedy specials | The Verge (click for full article)

    by Chris Welch - July 22, 2013

    With 14 Emmy nominations in hand, few are doubting Netflix's ability to produce quality scripted content. But as its latest letter to shareholders reveals, Netflix has ambitions that extend far beyond House of Cards and Arrested Development.

    Specifically, the company plans to produce full-length documentaries and comedy shows for its streaming customers. "Beyond series, we will be expanding our Originals initiative to include broadly appealing feature documentaries and stand-up comedy specials," the letter reads.

    "Netflix has become a big destination for fans of these much loved and often under-distributed genres." Chief content officer Ted Sarandos hinted of Netflix's interest in comedy in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in May.
