Fool analyst Jim Mueller tells us the biggest risks facing Netflix today.

The problems facing Netflix today could challenge the monetization of streaming in the future. Will cable companies such as Comcast that are also trying to attract streaming customers throttle bandwith? How will Netflix collect money from Latin America and other countries in the future? Can it afford to keep making deals like the Disney one it made recently? Motley Fool analyst Jim Mueller answers these questions and more in the following short video.
