Imagine cruising down the highway in your BMW Z4 sports coupe, with the wind in your hair…and logged in to Netflix watching your favorite movie! It may seem silly to think about driving a BMW Z4 or Mercedes Benz CL550 AMG while watching Netflix, but one of our readers has a very interesting sports car in love with Netflix story to tell! With an AT&T wireless air card, anything is possible
“I absolutely love logging in to Netflix, leaning back in my BMW Z4, and putting my MacBook Air on the dashboard, watching a great flick like Fast and the Furious, and stepping on the gas! I first got the idea from my son who asked me why the internet didn’t work in the car and where he could find Disney. I told him that “the internet isn’t everywhere” and felt bad that I had disappointed my son. Then I got a great idea. What if I could plug in my AT&T wireless air card from work and actually watch a movie while I drove my car on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Voila! Netflix in a BMW Z4 is possible!
We won’t call the Greensboro police department, but we will call the local BMW dealer. Get Netflix in the car! It’s a blast. If you have a BMW, it can be really simple to put a MacBook Air up on the dashboard because of the positioning of the windshield. Enjoy, and drive safe! Happy Netflix watching this weekend!
With all the brouhaha this week about Facebook being a credible Netflix competitor, Netflix-Login.com wanted to show a counterpoint to the story. While Goldman Sachs investment analysts think Facebook is a credible threat to Netflix, Bank of America investment analyst Nat Schindler disagrees: “Netflix’s huge increase in content has created a very high competitive barrier and with Netflix already a low cost service, we see few opportunities for an emerging competitor to pose a serious threat.” Nat argues that the Facebook deal is more of a threat to single movie rental, making it irrelevant to Netflix’s subscription business and a closer competitor to pay per view services from Comcast, DirectTV, and even Amazon. For now Additionally, people wan to watch movies on their TV, not their computer and Facebook has no connectivity in the living room!

The news media has been buzzing lately about the Warner Bros. deal with Facebook to let Facebook users watch the studio’s blockbuster, The Dark Knight, for only 30 credits, which is $3.00. This is a huge deal for both Facebook and Warner Bros., especially considering that Facebook has over 500 million logged in users compared to Netflix’s 20 million logged in users. The distribution potential that Facebook has is massive, and had a negative impact on the Netflix stock price, brining down the stock 6% on the news.
Goldman Sachs investment banking analyst, Ingrid Chung, commented on the news: ”Facebook’s foray into pay-per-view does not impact our Netflix estimates,” she said in a report. “However, Facebook represents a new potential entrant that few in the investment community were concerned with prior to this announcement, so we believe it does indeed represent an incremental negative for Netflix shares. ” She added that Facebook “could some day become a credible threat to Netflix.”
What’s our take on the news? Goldman Sachs is right not to lower revenue estimates for Netflix. Netflix is monetizing customers effectively and continues to acquire millions of users. Also, Netflix has deals with hundreds of device makers to make their content available in homes across the US. Facebook, however, is generally confined to your mobile phone or laptop, making it a sub-par experience.
