Netflix Planning Premium Streaming Channel
A recent survey from Netflix hits that users might get a new offer: being able to stream premium movies and original series' from HBO for an additional fee.

In addition, respondents were also asked if they would continue to watch HBO content on DVD given that the above-mentioned offer had already become available to them.
Should Netflix decide to roll out a premium tier service that would give viewers instant access to premium content, then the gate of possibilities is open and many movie studios might flock over to the company's HQ to sign some sweet deals.
Then again, the devil remains in the details and as long as the details will not be translated into “an appealing offer”, the extra $10 will be regarded as a much higher price for too less content.
