With streaming video king Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) announcing the addition of five new Disney (NYSE:DIS) shows, it takes another step toward becoming a veritable premium channel. It is hard to quantify the value parents place on solid programming for kids, so the addition of these shows may make it easier for Netflix to compete directly with Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) or DIRECTV (NYSE:DTV.DL). As CEO Reed Hastings continues to follow his vision, Netflix is looking increasingly attractive.
In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the step the company is taking and why it makes the stock as attractive as ever.
