Funny how it’s described as a Netflix model when it’s not. Netflix makes its money on streaming content from content producers. The subscriptions are actually a loss leader since there’s account sharing among its customers. It’s why they got out of that model, which ki---d Blockbuster and Blockbuster Online.

Come to think of it, Pearson is actually more Blockbuster than Netflix.

This isn’t going to work. The subscription model has been exploited already. How many people share Hulu, Netflix, Disney+ accounts already? All of them. One person pays, 5 get it for free. D-mb move.

Yeah, well @3knv+1c5c3AYO I'll be running up as many under $25 dollar expenses as possible. It's hot in the south and cold sweet tea with a shot of Titos goes a long way.

What sales crediting? You better believe you’ll be laid off by the time this rolls out.
