Netflix + Microsoft?
It looks like Microsoft and Netflix may soon be joining forces. Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, joined MS's board of directors today. Now this could mean nothing, but more than likely this is a win, win situation for both companies. Since Xbox 360 rules the (HD) movie download space and Netflix rules the online rental space a merger of sorts would benefit these two companies and unlikely enough... the consumer! Microsoft could really benefit from all of Netflix's clout with the MPAA to get a lot more HD content onto the marketplace, at least we can all hope.
