"The video-streaming sector is getting crowded," says Claire Atkinson in a New York Post article. Time Warner ( 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 ( AMCX 4.08% ) and on-the-air broadcaster CBS are launching similar online assets. How could Netflix ( NFLX -2.33% ) 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 ( GOOGL -0.68% ) and Apple ( AAPL -1.17% ) might pose a threat, if the tech giants find ways to work around middlemen like Amazon.com and Netflix.
