Netflix already works flawlessly in South Africa with a bottom of the range 2MB ADSL line, so I can't imagine that when they are officially in South Africa that they would need to host or partner with anyone else for delivery.Best option for them is to partner with them and offer to host it.
Actually, I think DSTV will have done all that work for them already DSTV show pretty much everything that's out there before Netflix - just not on demand - but I'd imagine the approval/rating would be the same for stream/broadcast of the same content?Won't Netflix have to get every single show that they offer here approved / licensed by some government agency ?
It competes with their entry level packages - but you're right - no need to feel concerned. The potential streaming market is so small, it won't hurt the broadcasters. Companies like Vidi.co.za though... toast.I'm not sure why Mnet should feel overly threatened - they [claim to] show the latest and greatest while Netflix it typically a season behind.
