When the Internet is more and more and the cable box is the TV, then it’s time to ask, is it really a cable service anymore?
In a recent interview with Gigaom, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said the internet needs to be treated like cable and internet service.
“It is,” he said.
“I think that’s the problem.
It’s a lot of things that are different about it.
It used to be, it used to just be a cable and a phone, and now it’s like you have all these things.”
And it’s not just the technology that’s changing.
It is also the culture that surrounds the Internet.
The Internet has always been an extension of the cable company and the TV network, and while we all know these are the same things, they are very different things.
Hastings said in this respect, the internet and the cord-cutting era are different things, too.
While Netflix doesn’t directly compete with any cable or satellite service, Hastings said there is an important distinction between the two.
Netflix has a “big tent” strategy, and as a result, the company is able to reach customers in a wider range of places.
In the U.S., Hastings said, it reaches around 30 million people.
Netflix’s customer base includes households with less than $1,000 in annual household income, as well as those with household incomes of more than $100,000 a year.
It’s a strategy that allows Netflix to “reach the people who we really need to reach, the people we’re really passionate about,” Hastings said.
It also allows Netflix, he said, to offer “a very compelling package.”
“We’re not trying to be a third-rate cable company or a second-rate Netflix,” Hastings continued.
“We want to be the leader in the ecosystem.”
“It’s not that we’re not interested in offering that package, but it’s that we want to do it better.”
The way Netflix deals with its subscriber base is different from other cable and satellite services.
Netflix offers a streaming service that can be accessed from many different places, and the company also has a service that offers an app-based experience that lets users access its video content on their phones.
Netflix also charges fees for a variety of services, including high-speed Internet, Netflix TV, and local video rental and playback.
The company says that its streaming service is “as good as it gets” and that its app has over 25 million users.
And as Hastings has said before, the service has always attracted users who want “the best of both worlds,” meaning that customers can access the same content from both sources.
The new strategy seems to be working, though.
According to a recent report from GigaOM, Netflix has a subscriber base of more then 30 million, which is an increase of around 10 million from last year.
Hastings told the magazine that the company “absolutely” plans to grow its subscriber bases even further over the next few years.
