So interesting, because so many people position the argument of our people going to cut their cable.

They can do so, would it be interesting to see netflix come into the cable family?

Netflix reveal they have cut a deal with the largest cable player in sweden.

They already cut a deal with virgin media in the u.k. it almost makes you wonder, netflix has had the door open to doing a deal with the cable operators in the u.s. for several years, how come we haven't seen one?

We don't know what is going on behind the scenes.

It has to do with the revenue share.

The companies are thinking five dollars, six dollars, seven dollars.

The netflix ceo made a point of saying if it was available, hbo was available outside the cable world, its subscriber base would be much larger.

We know that these two are almost neck and neck when it comes to subscribers right now.

Netflix has ambitions to get up to 90 million in the u.s. and they feel like hbo will do the same thing.

Don't expect hbo to leave the cable world anytime soon.

The cable companies give them a lot of money to stay there.
