  • HBO has traditionally differentiated itself with original content that was far superior to anything else on TV. Netflix, was originally a place to conviniently stream movies for leas than Ten buck monthly, as long as you were okay with content that is a year old or older.
    now Netflix is directly attacking HBO and other original content providers.  They are giving HBO, Showtime, and others a run for their money.   They are paying premium to actors to get premium content and are winning.
