What does Netflix's decision to ignore Blackberry tell us about RIM's future?
TheCount 1 year ago
I may be reading too much into this, but Netflix isn't going to release an app for the Blackberry, which seems to be suggest a company that has spent much more time than I have analyzing RIM has a dark view of the company's future. Keep in mind that Netflix hasn't seen many devices that it doesn't like; it is on everything from Android devices to Sony Vita to Nintendo 3DS to laptops, and so on. Off the top of my head, I can name 5 different devices on the first floor of my house that have Netflix on them. Is the rejection of the BB by Netflix a bit of a canary in a coal mine, or am I just too used to being able to watch Firefly and Downton Abbey on pretty much any device that I find in my hand?
