"The video-streaming sector is getting crowded," says Claire Atkinson in a New York Post article. Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) has launched a video-streaming service for $9.99 a month, with deep access to the famed studio's back catalog. Cable channel AMC (NASDAQ:AMCX) and on-the-air broadcaster CBS are launching similar online assets. How could Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) possibly survive in a world full of direct access to individual content producers?
In this video, Fool contributor Anders Bylund explains why a spectrum of stand-alone studio channels will never measure up to a well-rounded content aggregator like Netflix -- even if the price were right (which it isn't, in this case). If anything, content collection products from Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) might pose a threat, if the tech giants find ways to work around middlemen like Amazon.com and Netflix.
