3 Media Stocks in Focus: Netflix Negotiates, Time Warner’s Film Success, Disney Steps Back

Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX): Netflix is apparently engaging in discussions with a handful of cable-television operators, Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC) among them, in efforts to work out partnerships that would see Netflix’s streaming service brought to broadcasters’ set-top boxes. Bloomberg notes that the talks suggest cable operators increasingly see Netflix’s $7.99 monthly service as a tool to attract and retain customers, rather than a threat that will lead to cord-cutting.
