Hastings! You better not blow this power play…


Bowdoin alum Reed Hastings is the Blockbuster cockblocker behind Netflix (genius.)

Albeit, the N-Flix is in a wee spot of financial decline. Even though Hastings has offered to pay up to $200 million to keep up a contract with Starz, Starz is not having it. Apparently giving people unlimited monthly access to stream your movies isn’t that big of a moneymaker. And, if Starz goes, 1,000 movies go with it– putting a serious monkey wrench in the cogs of an already shitty streaming section (sorry Hastings.)
Netflix stocks are down 8%, so hopefully Reed can give it the old Bowdoin try. If not, there’s always Red Box…

 

haha yeah...
