Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

Okay, so the Fox shows are back and were just a rights thing, but why is the streaming, queueing, and searching of the CBS shows not all working?

Do you think Netflix has bit off more than it can handle now- jumping into original content before it has the infrastructure to handle the streaming influx they themselves created?

I think it might be neat if Netflix were to make deals to stream or rent material that is not available on DVD as yet, or secured the rights to material that may have been discontinued. To me, as someone who likes older things and often has to wait for I swear sometimes they only have one copy of one thing, this might be a good way to make a new niche for themselves. As opposed to original content and more shows that nobody has the time for.

What if Netflix got into film restoration and preservation? Or signed on independent film like Criterion? There's lots of other ways for them to go without getting crazy and ahead of themselves. And let's face it, they are getting ahead of themselves if so many folks are now having trouble with them.
