Network TV is free, Netflix is fee. Unless by network TV you are including HBO, etc., in which case the same applies.
Yea, but it isn't much of a fee, only $9 for both in the mail and streaming and $7 for just streaming.
So splitting the difference at $8 times their subscriber base monthly, gives them $224 million a month in gross revenues but that has to support licensing for all of their other programming which is subsantial.
But, apparnelty they can afford it.
Edited to add. For comparison purposes, CBS raked in $227 million for the Superbowl. And that's 5 hours of programming for one show.
