Netflix added 3 million subscribers this quarter. Can it keep growing at this torrid pace?

The following video is from Wednesday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Ron Gross, Charly Travers, and James Early.

Netflix (NFLX 1.98%) added 3 million subscribers in the first quarter and shares rose more than 20% on Tuesday in the wake of the better-than-expected earnings news. CEO Reed Hastings attributed the company's success to the "halo effect" from Netflix's original program House of Cards. In February, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos told GQ that "The goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can become us." Can Netflix become the next HBO? Will the transition to original programming force Netflix to increase monthly fees? In this installment of Motley Fool Money, our analysts discuss the future of Netflix.

The relevant video segment can be found between 8:16 and 11:13.
