Nice to hear this and I really like this part: "I think bitcoin and the blockchain represent the largest digital revolution after the Internet.''

Potentially bigger than the Lionsgate announcement. And that was big.

it's definitely a good thing that netflix is considering to add bitcoin as payment option. i only think it might take at least a year before they will set the first step to activate bitcoin payments on their service. it once again shows that bitcoin can potentially be accepted everywhere in the world. the nice thing from bitcoin is that it isn't tied to a certain industry. it can serve all industries.

It fits nicely into the strategy for them to go global this year. I would much rather see them offering a pay-per-view option linked to Bitcoin payment, to highlight the micro payment features of Bitcoin. The older the content the cheaper the price.

Bitcoin could eliminate a lot of restrictions put in place by fiat systems and also enable poor people to access better content on a pay-per-view concept and even cross subsidized by the higher income group, who can afford the monthly subscription price tag.
