Cheryl Burke
He's such a great guy. He's so normal, considering we're in this crazy business. It's so nice to be able to come home to him and turn Netflix on and order Postmates. He's someone I definitely do see spending the rest of my life with.feedback

Reed Hastings specifically said: “I see our board being about great judgment, particularly in unlikely disaster where we have to pick new leaders. I'm so mystified by your endorsement of Trump for our President, that for me it moves from 'different judgment' to 'bad judgment'. Some diversity in views is healthy, but catastrophically bad judgment (in my view) is not what anyone wants in a fellow board member.”.

All quotes about Netflix

Natasha Lyonne

So excited to get cracking with the intensely brilliant Leslye Headland, the GOAT with a heart of gold Amy Poehler, and Netflix, the safe haven I've been searching for since the Eighties. Deeply moved to work with such heavy hitters and to share our show with the world.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

Young Billy made his first visit to our office today. He's juggling. He's translating Flaubert from French into English. No – he smiles. That's pretty much it. He is very interested in ceiling fans. He likes those a lot. I could get him to pay the same amount for Netflix just to watch ceiling fans.feedback

Justin Simien

Whenever a new network starts, they look for the novel, they look for the new, they look for the unheard voices. And when Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and all these places opened up, we were just really ready for that moment.feedback

Mark Mahaney

Netflix has achieved a level of sustainable scale, growth, and profitability that isn't currently reflected in its stock price. In its oldest International markets, it appears [to] be scaling to profitability just as quickly as the U.S. market did. We believe these results highlight that Netflix's foray into Brazil has met with strong success so far. We also believe that this illustrates the potential for Netflix to reach material (~30%) penetration levels in multiple International markets.feedback

Mark Mahaney

The results were again overwhelmingly positive… So positive that we'd caveat that there is likely sample bias occurring within the results, given that the respondents to this survey are likely active Internet users who are more likely to subscribe to Netflix in the first place.feedback

Daisy Coleman - Netflix

The bullying was really intense because it didn't just end at school. When I would go home, it would be all over the internet. These people are able to say a lot crueler of things because it's such a dehumanized way of speaking … a lot of things affected how I looked at myself and my idea of self-worth.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

Our 2020 year-end subscriber estimate of 164 million worldwide assumes 64 percent domestic and 19 percent international share of broadband subscribers (excludes China from addressable base). While this level of penetration (domestically) is higher than most comparative subscription entertainment products, we believe the content/value ratio offered by Netflix is, and will continue to be, higher than other relevant comparative offerings.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

We believe Netflix is well positioned to have over 100 million international subscribers by 2020, along with ongoing operating margin expansion as the company spreads content and marketing spend over a growing installed base.feedback

Paul Verna - eMarketer

I think there is more storytelling going on. It's just the delivery mechanism is changing.feedback

Paul Verna - eMarketer

People still love one-hour dramas and half-hour sitcoms and news and sports. That hasn't changed at all.feedback

Bruce Miller

There's nothing old hat about making drama at Hulu.feedback

Charlie Brooker

I'd like to thank everyone at Netflix for being supportive and smart and funny. I'd like to thank our wonderful cast, Gugu and Mackenzie. Thank you very much, I'm shocked – I'm going to go melt this down for gold. I've heard 2017 described as like being trapped in one long un-ending Black Mirror episode, but if I'd written it it wouldn't be quite so on the nose, with all the Nazis and hate. San Junipero was a story about love, and love will defeat hate. Love will win, but it might need a bit of help.feedback

Charlie Brooker

I was worried about it when writing it, because I've not really written a romance before. San Junipero was the first one I wrote for the Netflix season, and I was consciously trying to clear the decks on what Black Mirror was. And the world is in a place at the moment where I think maybe people appreciate things that aren't so unremittingly horrible.feedback

Richard Licata

In a crowded environment that's a very valuable message to the creative community. If you can attract the best creative people it furthers your chances of getting to the podium.feedback

Richard Licata

It's like Ringling Bros. bringing the elephants down Eighth Avenue. All the networks had to get much more creative to stay in the game or get into it.feedback

Robert Greenblatt

I know the general consensus for a while has been that the broadcast networks are aging dinosaurs just getting closer to extinction.feedback

Craig Erwich

We have multiple constituencies and we're selling to all of them at any given point. What you're working toward isn't just an Emmy nomination but overhearing someone in line at Starbucks talking about the show, or seeing 'Saturday Night Live' doing a parody of 'Handmaid's Tale.feedback

Melissa Rosenberg

Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and the like are really putting their money where their mouth is. They're paying creators, extraordinary actors, and for the budgets of shows equal or better than basic cable or network TV.feedback

Peter Csathy

Traditional media companies are scrambling, saying: 'How do we beat back so much money being thrown at TV?'. The challenge is about compelling storytelling and keeping talent amid those forces.feedback

Peter Csathy

Everyone is looking for a tent-pole show so that they can scream loud and proud to bring audiences and keep them there.feedback

Chris Evenden

We've been building an infrastructure both from a product and a marketing perspective so we can move our slate across to new platforms, and we can move with our games across to new platforms as well. So all of these things, we've been working on for five or more years now, actually. And we think in the next couple of years, you'll see some major technological announcements that will prove to be commercially significant in the next three to five years.feedback

Chris Evenden

The commercial details have to be worked out, but whatever number it ends up at is very much less than $460. So that extends your market, because all you need locally is literally a smart TV.feedback

Chris Evenden

Right now if you want to play FIFA in the United States, it will cost you $460.feedback

Chris Evenden

You have to buy the game; you have to buy the console. In a streaming world, it could be $9.99 a month.feedback

Chris Evenden

But I think it's inevitable that the gaming entertainment world will move in much the same way that the music and video entertainment worlds have already moved, in the sense that people have moved from an ownership model to an access model.feedback

Chris Evenden

That infrastructure barrier is still there, but it's shrinking very rapidly.feedback

Jodie Sweetin

Now, I don't have a TV. I have like Netflix and HBO GO, but I don't have regular TV, so it's never on in my house. My kids watch it, like at their dad's house, or on the iPads. But I don't know that I've ever watched it. I watch clips.feedback

Jodie Sweetin

I have to be honest. I don't know that I've ever watched an entire episode of Full House. Not sat down for an entire episode.feedback

Lady Gaga

You have to go to that broken place of your heart to write songs.feedback

Sam Chaudwary - ClassDojo

We need to change the classroom model. Effectiveness, not efficiency.feedback

Jerry Ramirez

Aside from the technical difficulties–sometimes there's a problem or the book crashes and the professor doesn't know what to do–I'd say people like the shift. What's crazy is that I look at underclassmen and some students have never known anything else. It's interesting to see that difference, even over the four years I've been here.feedback

David France

Almost single-handedly, Marsha P. Johnson and her best friend, Sylvia Rivera, touched off a revolution in the way we talk about gender today. Their names should be household words. But Marsha's life was cut tragically short and Sylvia died shortly thereafter, the victim of a broken heart.feedback

David France

Getting to know their story through the investigation undertaken by Victoria Cruz, a seminal activist in her own right, has been one of the great honors of my career. Now, with Netflix as our distribution partner, I am confident the legacy of these tremendous women will never be forgotten.feedback

Loung Ung

They really were wonderful. I mean it was so important for Mad, he's so used to being a big brother to all the siblings that when he was on the set it was a natural transition for him to just be big brother to everybody else. It was lovely, I loved it.feedback

Jim Cramer

Netflix always does well when people are shut in. It's as much of a storm play as Amazon, which gets new Prime members when local stores are closed for inclement weather.feedback

Jack Gould

The fatal flaw in the Emmy awards is the academy's pathetic yearning to be liked at any price, to revise its systems of awards to meet whatever may be the latest wave of criticism. An unmitigated disaster.feedback

Tom O'Neil

The radical infusion of new blood in the Emmy race is largely due to the huge impact that streaming services are having on TV. There's tons of outrageous examples you can point to. Lindsay Wagner won Best Dramatic Actress for 'The Bionic Woman'! The Emmys pick what they LIKE.feedback

Tim Westcott - IHS

It really depends on what Apple's ambitions are, but as Netflix has shown, you don't really need to own studios to accumulate a library of intellectual property. You just need to make the right creative decisions and be prepared to take risks by fully funding new projects.feedback

James Farrell - Amazon.com

Now more than half our new customers are coming from the video service . . . and the Amazon universe is pretty fantastic once you get in.feedback

Sushilkumar Agrawal

Piracy is a big problem but you have to live with it. We're not going to go into the street and fight with people, and this is at the bottom of the police's list of priorities. Amazon are paying good money to the content owners – and they're going for new productions, so we have the opportunity to produce more and more content for them.feedback

Lady Gaga

I'm going to fight like [expletive] hell for them to [expletive] like this.feedback

Walter Piecyk - BTIG Research

T-Mobile is in an enviable position for the future communications landscape by building the bundle from scratch, without having to sustain legacy businesses that are in structural decline. Netflix is in a similarly enviable position, which makes them obvious and high profile partners. The communications landscape is changing and T-Mobile is not sitting still waiting for a merger that may or may not materialize.feedback

Angelina Jolie - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

I've taken over a year off now, because of my family situation, to take care of my kids. I look forward to having some fun with that.feedback

Robert Kyncl - YouTube

I don't think we are trying to copy Netflix: We are who we are. We are really comfortable with our identity as the open platform, and our subscription service is about offering more choice, more content for the users and more high-value users for our creators. But we are anchoring off the people who have become huge on YouTube, the 'streampunks' we describe in the book, and they produce higher level programming with us, with our money and promotion.feedback

John Legere

This is not something Netflix is giving us for free. We're taking care of your Netflix bill for you.feedback

Claire Foy

The Golden Globes were really weird–absolutely amazing, but strange, because suddenly, without me knowing, while I've been busy working, people felt like I belonged in that room. And I'd be like, No, you don't understand. I haven't changed, it's still just me.' There was definitely a moment after the awards where I needed to be alone in a dark room to try to understand what's happening. I never got that moment. I got a martini and cracked on.feedback

Claire Foy

I would hate the idea of her watching it. When you're playing a real person, you never want to be ghoulish. I don't want to pick apart a person. I want to invent someone. So I would hate for her to watch it and think I overdramatized anything.feedback

Claire Foy

I'm in massive denial. I don't feel like it's over. I'm waiting for it to hit me at some point that this stage of my life is finished, but it hasn't happened yet.feedback

Marci Ryvicker

We like the entry point for DIS even if we're early … We view the risk/reward as heavily skewed to the upside. We continue to believe Disney is a premium brand with one of the best management teams in media.feedback

Marci Ryvicker

With Disney's foray into direct-to-consumer (DTC) streaming, we can't help but believe the TV ecosystem will soon embark on an accelerated over-the-top (OTT) path. Thus, investors may need to start thinking about increasing exposure to those media cos. with solid streaming strategies, such as … Disney.feedback

Robert Collignon

I have to get Netflix DVDs in the mail. That's basically the evening entertainment. That and cooking. It's lonely at times, for sure.feedback

MaryLeigh Bliss - Ypulse

Think of the platforms these generations are on – Netflix, Spotify – where they create playlists and watch shows specifically for them. In the food industry, we've had the 'Chipotlification' of food with all these fast-casual chains taking inspiration from building your own.feedback

Miguel Angel Silvestre

It has a strong and very raw scene, . It seems like [it wasn't] real, but it was. When I read [the script], I got a big surprise.feedback

Javier Cámara

[They] are fascinating characters. Intelligence with evil always draws lots of attention.feedback

Pedro Pascal

The story of Cali [Cartel] is very interesting because I knew less of what went down. [They] were the kings of the cocaine industry, they had more money and more power than Escobar. In the third season [my character] is in a new position with different responsibilities.feedback

Jim Cramer

I keep waiting for another player to have an answer to Amazon. There isn't one. Classic, value-oriented investors don't like the style of Netflix; too unorthodox, too showboat. But I don't care how a player acts off the field. Netflix is on a whole 'nother plane, a winner which consistently breaks out when you least expect it to.feedback

Chace Crawford

It's so weird how the same demographic has been frozen in time. Fourteen- to 20-year-olds still come up to me freaking out and it's because they binge [the show] on Netflix.feedback

Todd Juenger

We believe gaining on-going and future relationships for exclusive content from star creators such as Rhimes/Letterman/Lorre/Kohan, while losing a handful of Disney movies, is a net positive. The only plausible reason this topic has caused such a commotion for NFLX stock (other than a poor understanding of the facts) is the theory that this is just the start of a huge wave of Hollywood studios pulling their content. We don't think they will (Disney isn't, other than a portion movie output), and we don't think it would matter much if they did. It's too late.feedback

Todd Juenger

Almost all of Netflix's future growth will come from international … Investors who were already skeptical (or bullish) on int'l growth will remain so – but Disney's U.S. non-renewal should have no effect on that view. In the U.S., recent news flow has, if anything, made us more bullish.feedback

Barrie Gunter

These spikes may have been caused by repeated exposure to the fashion trends on-screen, sometimes as a result of binge-watching, strengthening long term memory of items, in turn, affecting what you want to buy.feedback

Jerry Seinfeld

Would I have been funnier if I grew up in Peoria in a whore house raised by prostitutes? Absolutely. But this is what I had to work with.feedback

Jerry Seinfeld

My parents didn't even know our names! They were ignorant; they were negligent; we grew up like wild dogs in the Sixties. No helmets, no seatbelts, no restraints!feedback

John Landgraf

[The business] is in the late stage of a bubble. We're seeing a desperate scrum ... there is simply too much television.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

Every one of our creative executives has buying power. They can greenlight a big-budget show in the room without me. I don't think we compete with Amazon in the movie space at all. I frankly don't understand their strategy. I don't understand why perpetuating a model that feels more and more disconnected with the population is good.feedback

Alberto Barbera

We simply cannot ignore this phenomenon. Most contemporary film-makers are going to Amazon and Netflix with projects. If a film-maker accepts the new rules of the game, I don't see why a festival shouldn't do the same.feedback

Edmund Lee - Re/Code

Now with Netflix and Hulu and Amazon and all these other players, and Apple coming into the fray, you're not going to watch all that stuff. There's going to be different audiences for different shows. That's what we are seeing. There's a bit of a fracturing of the audience.feedback

Charlie Brooker

Netflix is an ideal home for Black Mirror. It's an anthology show, so you can watch it whenever; and it's on a streaming service, which is a disruptive technological agent. What we have done, however, is give the series a bit more variety. We didn't want it to be just six more episodes of, you know, a guy downloads an app and his life is ruined.feedback

Claire Foy

I live in London and I have a child, so getting on a transatlantic flight and having my hair and makeup done and getting to wear a beautiful dress and have a night out is amazing. It'll be magic – aside from the jet lag!feedback

Emily Martin

Demonstrating that [your] responsibilities and the workplace skills required, as well as the demands placed on you are in line with your male counterparts proves that your salary matters. Focusing on the ways in which the job is equivalent and the skills and demands on the job are equivalent is key to making the case that the compensation needs to be equivalent, too.feedback

Chris Moukarbel

I had a rare opportunity to create a portrait of an artist with such an open heart and mind. I feel really lucky that Gaga trusted me and my vision.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

If anyone can do it from a content perspective, it's probably them, because of their unique brand awareness. But they're coming from way behind.feedback

Doug Creutz - Cowen Group

Disney makes a lot of amazing content, and no one can replicate it. But they're putting a significant revenue stream at risk. If they succeed, they'll capture all the revenue, but may accelerate disrupting the cable bundle. And it may not succeed. Fifteen percent of a big number is a lot better than 100 percent of nothing.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

Anyone who wants to compete directly with Netflix or the full spectrum of competitors who are getting into this space had better be ready for a long, hard fight and have very deep pockets. They have the money to spend on content, and they already have huge direct-to-consumer user bases and traffic. Disney served its purpose.feedback

Jim Cramer

As Moreno sees it, the weakness in Netflix has been weighing on the rest of the FANG cohort. Here's the bottom line: the charts, as interpreted by Moreno, suggest that this market may have gotten ahead of itself. Sooner or later, he thinks there will be a day of reckoning, and some butterfly is going to take flight and hurt the whole market. It's going to bring down some large-cap stocks. I think Moreno might be too pessimistic, but you know what? After looking at this, I figured no one's ever gotten hurt taking a little off the table and being a little more cautious after a big up day.feedback

Jim Cramer

Moreno points out that the real, market-cap weighted version of this index is about 4 percent higher than the equal-weighted version. In short, in the past, FANG stocks like Netflix have given the entire index a real boost. But that's what he's concerned about.feedback

Jim Cramer

You've heard this before: Lorenz noticed that small changes in initial weather calculations could have gigantic effects on the final results. This is not just about the weather, Watson. It applies to any complex system, including the stock market. In short, small causes can have large effects. Hence the analogy: a butterfly flaps its wings in Asia and that little movement of air ultimately causes a hurricane on the other side of the world.feedback

Jim Cramer

Obviously, Netflix alone can't crush the whole market, but you get the point. It could it be the catalyst that starts a chain reaction of selling and sends us all reeling. This is August, stranger things have happened.feedback

Yance Ford

I look forward to having a lot of really vigorous conversations about the film, and I welcome them all.feedback

Ross Duffer

We're thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out. They're going to have to get the f--- out of this town! It's ridiculous!feedback

Jim Cramer

But this is what I mean about August. The fact is ... there's nothing really going on at Facebook, and nothing at Apple, Amazon, Netflix [or] Alphabet. They remain dominant in their industries, as dominant as they were when they reported their earnings.feedback

Cara Buono

She is so vibrant and so mature and I love her to death. I just think she's one of the most intelligent, lovely young women. [Fame] really has not changed her. She's just herself, but now more of the world knows who she is.feedback

Daniel Kasman

It can be something that touches you, expand your mind or show you new places or new stories you've never thought of before. It might be something that makes you laugh. It might be a classic and a favorite of yours.feedback

Scott Dickey

We knew video was coming and it was coming fast and furious. We had a really unique environment at TEN where our core business was declining … We had to place bets and we had to place bets quickly.feedback

Matt Faure

I'm more impressed by somebody who reaches back and takes some of the older and more obscure films.feedback

Chris Vollmer - PricewaterhouseCoopers

Fans feel they can go deeper in contrast to a big service, whether that's a broadcast network or a mass-market subscription video service that's trying to have something for everyone.feedback

David Letterman

I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. Here's what I have learned: if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill. Imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together. David Letterman is a true television icon, and I can't wait to see him out in the wild, out from behind the desk and interviewing the people he finds most interesting. We'll have to see if he keeps the beard.feedback

David Letterman

I'm new to California and I thought 'I guess. I guess this is what you do,' . And I said, Oh, it's minty flavored marijuana.feedback

Howard Stern

We didn't even have any regard for what someone might lace that thing with or spray all over it.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

There have been many of them. A lot of times, it's not the reflection of the show–it's just timing. It wasn't in the creative form that it is today.feedback

Jonathan Friedland

Our view is that it is a dangerous precedent to start taxing Internet apps and websites using laws intended for utilities like water and electricity.feedback

John Buhl

When you see the sales tax base dwindling like this, it is understandable for lawmakers to get together and say, Is there a way that we can expand this?feedback

Dustin Brighton

States are increasingly looking to raise revenue, but these efforts must be both lawful and not discriminate against any one sector.feedback

Steve Kranz - McDermott Will & Emery

We are at the very beginning of a trend where local governments begin evaluating their policy vis á vis digital taxation.feedback

Ted Farnsworth - Helios And Matheson Analytics

It reminds Mitch of when Blockbuster Video said Netflix would never survive, or RedBox would never make it. The big dinosaurs like AMC, they just have to understand that we're there to help them. We're here to bring people into the theater.feedback

Ted Farnsworth - Helios And Matheson Analytics

It's something that everybody understands. Everybody understands that from Spotify, or Netflix, or Hulu, or Amazon Prime, especially millennials. They grew up subscription-based.feedback

Dylan Patel

There are some days where I want to come home from school after two or three tests and just hang out, watch some Netflix. But sometimes that's not possible.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

I don't think we compete with Amazon in the movie space at all. I frankly don't understand their strategy. I don't understand why perpetuating a model that feels more and more disconnected with the population is good.feedback

Kim Sauder

It also erases accountability for autistic men. I cannot emphasize enough that sexism and misogyny are not inherent to autism and that autistic men who do exhibit such behavior should be challenged and held accountable.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

Shonda Rhimes is one of the greatest storytellers in the history of television. Her work is gripping, inventive, pulse-pounding, heart-stopping, taboo-breaking television at its best. I've gotten the chance to know Shonda and she's a true Netflixer at heart – she loves TV and films, she cares passionately about her work, and she delivers for her audience. We're so excited to welcome her to Netflix.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

I would say that the relationship between studios and networks has always been that of a frenemy.feedback

Brad Paisley

They shoulda called it Beauty and the Beastiality. I mean, where I come from, that is. . .well, actually, it's ok. I'm from West Virginia.feedback

Channing Dungey

Shonda, Betsy and I started working together with the first episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' and those early days will forever remain one of the highlights of my professional life. We are happy to continue working with Shonda and her team at Shondaland on 'Grey's, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder,' and the upcoming 'For the People' and 'Grey's' spinoff. I'm proud to have given a home to what have become some of the most celebrated and talked about shows on television. With the launch of a new season upon us, fans can rest assured that TGIT remains intact and will be as buzzed about as ever.feedback

Patrick Moran

We're so proud of the work we've done with Shonda and Betsy throughout our long and productive relationship. From the worldwide success of Grey's Anatomy to today, with five series ('Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, For the People,' and the 'Grey's' spinoff), a pilot from Allan Heinberg and a number of projects in development, we will continue to shepherd that success together. The Shondaland imprint will always be an important part of ABC Studios and we wish them all the best in this new endeavor.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

We have continued to move up the food chain in terms of getting into the creation of content earlier. We want to give creators a place to stretch out their muscles and have the environment do the best work of their lives.feedback

Richard Broughton

Disney's new service is not positioned to compete directly with Netflix, but adds to the mix of options out there for consumers. Disney's move is more about developing new revenue streams than it is about building a Netflix-like competitor.feedback

Shonda Rhimes

I'm thrilled by the idea of a world where I'm not caught in the necessary grind of network television, . Ted [Sarandos, Netflix's CEO] provides a clear, fearless space for creators at Netflix.feedback

John Bergmayer

The stranglehold of cable isn't broken yet – for most people it's hard to cut the cord – but these are all really good signs.feedback

Jamie O'Dell

The current influx of these subscription-based plans is saturating the market. We do not need more options for streaming services. We need less.feedback

Marc DeBevoise - CBS Interactive

To succeed, you need a great core and content that only you have. These are not for a big, broad audience.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

I was one of those kids who'd read the books with my fingers stuck in between a bunch of pages, so I could track where I've already been. I'd read them cover to cover so I was sure that I didn't miss a single branch of the story. I also played text adventures like Zork and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I loved the classic Sierra games.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

The standard script writing tools we have don't really allow for multiple choices. We started from an outline and a story map to understand flow of narrative, and how things link together. Making sure that continuity matches for every possible story option was a big source of headaches.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

I live for moments like that. It's just an absolute joy to enable parents to engage together with their kids and have moments of connection with interactive content.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

How do we encode a title like this, and assign a storymap in our system? How do we let the audience move around the timeline? Fast-forward doesn't work when you don't know where you're going. This really was Hollywood and Silicon Valley coming together to solve a very real problem.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

Our team's job is to ask ourselves, How do we innovate around storytelling? Interactivity just seemed like a natural thing to explore.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

Kids engage with media in ways that we don't. They're just completely used to swiping and tapping on touchscreens to make things happen, and that's one of the few things they really get ownership and agency around. But they're also used to talking to the TV. On shows like Blue's Clues, Dora the Explorer, and Sesame Street, the characters literally turn to the kids and ask them questions, and invite them to say things.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

There's just incredible experimentation going on in that space. You have these beautiful narrative experiences like Her Story, and you have people pushing technology to make games that are audio-only. Game designers play around with mediums in ways that few others do. I also showed my daughter the interactive Puss in Boots episode, and she liked it so much that she went back on her own and started watching the other linear episodes of the animated series. Then she came to me and said, Why doesn't it ask me what I want to do?feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

At one point, you choose between whether they should try and jump their truck over a creek, or whether they should try and jump their truck over a creek while they're blindfolded. The obvious choice there is to do it blindfolded--that sounds like it has much more potential for a crazy outcome. But doing it without the blindfold is hands-down my favorite choice point in the episode. What happens just has such brilliant comedic timing... I've watched it 150 times at this point, and it's still great.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

Another question was, what makes a compelling choice? It can't just be choosing whether you go left or go right. How do you create stakes? How do you make viewers have [fear of missing out], so they want to go back and explore the other options?feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

We went to a couple of different markets and did focus testing with kids five to 12. We didn't tell them a whole lot; we just said that we have this show and we'd love to get your thoughts on it. On the iPad, they got it right away, and they were tapping around and were totally into it. But on the TV, it was not as quick. They're used to pressing play, dropping the remote, sinking back on the couch, and letting the content roll.feedback

Carla Engelbrecht Fisher - Netflix

My daughter is six, and she's so used to Pandora and Spotify that she keeps asking me to skip the commercials when we're listening to the radio.feedback

Chris Rondeau

If you think about our business model and our marketing, it's a marketing machine. So every incremental member that joins, 9 percent of that dues goes to marketing, fueling the next join.feedback

Bob Iger

Any intellectual property company should be careful about being lulled into supporting a platform that may not serve the customer effectively in a disrupted world.feedback

Mike Vorhaus

What Disney is doing is a really big deal in terms of trying new things, and I don't think it even has answers to some of these questions, including what the services will cost. But it's clearly not the end of linear television. It's not the end of Netflix.feedback

Bob Iger

It's high time we got in this business. The profitability, the revenue-generating capability of this initiative is substantially greater than the business models we're currently being served by.feedback

Patty McCord

People want to have conversations about millennials and I don't like to talk about it. I think it's stupid. You were a millennial, I was a millennial. … It's called being young, being early in your career. What do you want? Everything. When do you want it? Now.feedback

Patty McCord

The media landscape is increasingly defined by direct relationships between content creators and consumers, and our control of BAMTech's full array of innovative technology will give us the power to forge those connections, along with the flexibility to quickly adapt to shifts in the market. This acquisition and the launch of our direct-to-consumer services mark an entirely new growth strategy for the Company, one that takes advantage of the incredible opportunity that changing technology provides us to leverage the strength of our great brands.feedback

Cindy Holland - Netflix

The Coens are visionary directors, masterful storytellers, and colourful linguists. We are thrilled for Netflix to become home to the full range of their talents.feedback

Jason Calacanis

It will be very easy for them to get tens of millions of people to subscribe. If something like poker becomes extremely popular, they could, with a direct-to consumer offering, have a poker channel, and do it with a level of professionalism that other people simply can't. So I think it's going to open up new opportunities for them.feedback

Benjamin Swinburne - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Netflix may be losing content from its most important supplier in Disney, but its strategy to pivot to originals, build its own global content brand, and vertically integrate into self production mitigate this loss.feedback

John Janedis - Jefferies

Disney's decision to end its distribution deal with Netflix (beginning in 2019) supports our long-held view that content owners will increasingly look to retain content for owned platforms. What is unclear is whether or not the largely staggered impact will affect NFLX's growth in net adds. NFLX's content investment likely assumed some non-renewals.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

While this will be a negative headline for Netflix, we expect the actual impact on the subscriber base to be minimal. There is no question Disney content was a 'nice to have,' but we believe Netflix can find ways to re-allocate … to create similarly engaging (and more exclusive) content for its subscriber base.feedback

Bob Iger

But we're mindful of the volume of product that would go into those services, and we want to be careful about that. ... It's all in discussion.feedback

Reed Hastings - Netflix

I see our board being about great judgment, particularly in unlikely disaster where we have to pick new leaders. I'm so mystified by your endorsement of Trump for our President, that for me it moves from 'different judgment' to 'bad judgment'. Some diversity in views is healthy, but catastrophically bad judgment (in my view) is not what anyone wants in a fellow board member.feedback

Michael Browne

I think it's late and it's probably arrogant. I have to confess my children are great users of Netflix … They don't watch Disney. They don't see anything of Disney on Netflix. From my point of view sitting there as a consumer I think this is a pretty hollow threat, is Disney content that good that it drives Netflix subscribers? I don't think it is.feedback

Paolo Pescatore - CCS Insight

Disney has been a relatively late player to the online video landscape. The move squashes any rumors of Disney acquiring Netflix. But it is a huge compliment to the success Netflix has achieved within a short period of time and a strong validation of its strategy. Removing Disney content will be a setback for Netflix, but expect other content and media owners.feedback

Bob Iger

This represents a big strategic shift for the company. We felt that having control of a platform we've been very impressed with after buying 33 percent of it a year ago would give us much greater control of our destiny in a rapidly changing market.feedback

David Nevins - Special Olympics

I'm really happy with the performance. It drove our business in a way that almost nothing else could. It's been interesting and maybe it's a blinding glimpse of how Netflix looks at the world but [it had] a palpable effect on subscribers even though its overall numbers are not as big as our biggest shows. I don't think so, but it's not impossible. [Lynch and I are] both avoiding the conversation for a while; we want to let the story coalesce and see how people feel at the end.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill [so] imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together. David Letterman is a true television icon, and I can't wait to see him out in the wild, out from behind the desk and interviewing the people he finds most interesting. We'll have to see if he keeps the beard.feedback

David Letterman

I'm happy for the guys – the men and the women. There should be more women. And I don't know why they didn't give my show to a woman. That would have been fine.feedback

David Letterman

People tell me nice things about Seth Meyers, that he's good and thoughtful.

I can't say much about these shows, because I just don't watch them.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

International growth is clearly the primary focus of NFLX investors; one of the most consistent concerns we hear, regarding ongoing growth potential, is the challenge the service will face gaining adoption in lower income markets. Our analysis suggests that Netflix can reach 100M international subs by 2020, with zero or very minimal penetration in lower income international markets.feedback

David Letterman

I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. Here's what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely. I keep saying, jeez, I still think I can do something. I want that epiphany that others have had. It's the same epiphany that I had about wanting to do a TV show when I was, like, 17.feedback

Richard Broughton

Some of the Millarworld comics have been made into some big films. There is some latent awareness of its properties. But there is a large range of untapped comics yet to translate to TV or big screen. Netflix has a lot of work to do to raise awareness of this alternative intellectual property that are not household names in a way Marvel or DC Comics characters are.feedback

Jim Cramer

But the love for the product and the genius of the man behind it, [founder and CEO] Jeff Bezos, drove the stock to where it is today, one of the greatest runs of all time.feedback

Jim Cramer

But the second part? Whoa! It's almost impossible to tell how much money Tesla makes per car, if anything. Nor is it possible to define the future of the company. If everything goes right it could be the next Amazon, a tech company that sells cars, just as Amazon's a tech company that's in retail. If it doesn't, then the stock could flame out.feedback

Jim Cramer

I wish I had an answer for this conundrum. Maybe you just take some real 'Mad Money' and buy one of them: preferably Netflix or Amazon because they're far more proven than Tesla. No matter. The fact is that some stories flunk the near-term fundamentals even as they triumph over the long term. ... Two of these three have already done so. For all I can tell, the third will, too.feedback

Jim Cramer

Making things even more difficult, on the recent conference call, CEO Reed Hastings actually championed the notion that negative free cash flow, something I don't like, will be an indicator of enormous success. I just don't think that would pass the Lynch test.feedback

Jim Cramer

Given the 2017 numbers we should use, both the estimates and what's in the can, the stock's trading at 16 times earnings. That's before you back out the humongous cash hoard. It's dirt cheap, people.feedback

Jim Cramer

So, I decided to go back to see how FANG, my acronym for Facebook , Amazon , Netflix and Google, now Alphabet , was doing at that 15th anniversary when the piece was written, because I think it's an excellent illustration of why you shouldn't take these sirens of skepticism too seriously.feedback

Jim Cramer

What you need to know is that if you looked at the numbers alone two years ago, you would've missed that Amazon was developing this incredible cloud-based web services business. Hmm, what's 40 percent of Amazon worth right now? How about $395? That's right, the web services business alone is worth more than what the entire company was selling for a couple of years ago.feedback

Jim Cramer

I think those are low-ball numbers, too, but the point is that if you looked at the right metric two years ago, it would've been obvious that Facebook was much cheaper than it seemed. That's nothing like the Nasdaq peak in 2000.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

The ad trend is really frustrating, because these guys have had good pricing tailwinds with the upfront up at a very healthy level. The advertisers want to be there, but the viewers are not, so the advertising is pressure.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

The trends are clear. I mean out of the reports that we had last week, you're seeing kind of a three percentage point or so decline in basic cable carriage on pay-TV systems. And that's an uncomfortable number, and it's been ever-so-slightly getting a little bit worse, it seems. That creates a lot of fear, uncertainty and doubt.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

If they have success there, which I think they can, I think that could be a catalyst for more pipe content merger consideration, which I think would put a bid underneath many names in the group.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

What it says is evaluation doesn't matter. Netflix's chart has gone straight up, Viacom's chart has gone straight down. Viacom is a super cheap stock, Netflix is super expensive. In this group, it's the secular trends that matter, not the evaluation right now.feedback

Mark Millar

This is only the third time in history a major comic book company has been purchased at this level.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

As creator and re-inventor of some of the most memorable stories and characters in recent history, ranging from Marvel's The Avengers to Millarworld's Kick-Ass, Kingsman, Wanted and Reborn franchises, Mark is as close as you can get to a modern day Stan Lee. The moment Lucy and I walked into Netflix's headquarters in California last Christmas we knew this was where we wanted to be. It instantly felt like home and the team around that table felt like people who would help us take Millarworld's characters and turn them into global powerhouses.feedback

Eric Newman

The Cali cartel aided in the dismantling of the Medellin cartel and benefited by going from being No. 2 to No. 1. They were then taken apart over a period of two years and another cartel rose up in their place. So there's a revolving-door aspect to narco kingpins and we'll certainly exploit that. From the beginning when we decided to call the show Narcos and not Pablo Escobar, I had always had in mind to tell the continuing story of cocaine. [We] wanted to tell a story about the drug war and never just about one person or organization. We had always planned on continuing on.feedback

Eric Newman

Unlike Escobar, who had positioned himself as an outlaw, Cali was very much a part of the system. They had bought their way in and they enjoyed a different kind of protection than Pablo did. Pablo was protected by the people who loved him and Cali was protected by a political and economic system that they had rather ingeniously built. It's a different kind of villain. While Escobar was a single-cell organism, they were a complex, multi-celled organism.feedback

Evgenia Peretz - Vanity Fair

'Srey Moch [the girl ultimately chosen for the part] was the only child that stared at the money for a very, very long time,' Jolie says. When she was forced to give it back, she became overwhelmed with emotion. All these different things came flooding back.' Jolie then tears up. When she was asked later what the money was for, she said her grandfather had died, and they didn't have enough money for a nice funeral.'.feedback

Evgenia Peretz - Vanity Fair

In order to find their lead, to play young Loung Ung, the casting directors set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism: they put money on the table and asked the child to think of something she needed the money for, and then to snatch it away. The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie.feedback

Angelina Jolie - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

Every measure was taken to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of the children on the film starting from the auditions through production to the present. I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario. The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. I would be outraged myself if this had happened.feedback

Aziz Ansari

Alan once said it best: It's like we just gave birth to a kid and they're like, When are you gonna have another kid? … My life has not progressed enough for me to write season three yet.feedback

John Ayres

John Ayres

Moreover, the planned second season, and all suicide related media, might undergo testing before wide release to prevent well intended content from producing unintended results.feedback

Casey Bloys

As a category, stand-up specials account for less than 1% of usage on Go and Now.feedback

Danielle Brooks

The hardest part of production is not having too much fun. Honestly, all of us are really close friends now, so when we get together we love laughing until our stomachs hurts, so just remembering to rein it back can be challenging work. Somehow we find a way to pull it together.feedback

Danielle Brooks

I think she's super courageous, she's been through so much in her life, but she's still held on to her resilience and her perseverance. She's a fighter and no matter how many times she gets knocked down she always finds ways to get back up.feedback

Casey Bloys

We're excited to bring Jon to the network with this pair of specials. We've all missed his uniquely thoughtful brand of humor. We've done standup for a long time. It was a relatively low cost way to be in the cultural conversation. But as a category, standup specials account for less than one percent of usage on (HBO) Go and Now ... so it's hard for me to pay exorbitant prices. When prices come down, or when it makes sense again, it's relatively easy to get back in. We'll wait it out.feedback

Jeremy Darroch

We try hard to be friendly with everybody. If you look at the relationships we have more broadly, pretty much every major company we have some form of relationship with. Sometimes it takes a while to commercially bring that to life and get the right kind of common ground. A lot of our customers take Netflix alongside their bundle, not at the expense of Sky but alongside Sky.feedback

Jeremy Darroch

It is a competitive world out there. There is more movement between platforms [rivals] than in the past. We need to keep focused and keep executing our plans. We have good plans in place.feedback

Dan Taylor-Watt - BBC

Downloads are great for holidaymakers looking to take their favourite shows away with them so that they have got something to watch on the plane, to keep the kids entertained or if they get stuck indoors on a rainy day. We tend to see a spike in downloads over the summer months, and are expecting a significant increase in the coming weeks.feedback

Cindy Holland - Netflix

Matt Groening's brilliant work has resonated with generations around the world and we couldn't be happier to work with him on Disenchantment. The series will bear [Groening's] trademark animation style and biting wit, and we think it's a perfect fit for our many Netflix animation fans.feedback

Christopher Nolan

I think the investment that Netflix is putting into interesting filmmakers and interesting projects would be more admirable if it weren't being used as some kind of bizarre leverage against shutting down theaters. Your worst nightmare in the '90s as a filmmaker was that the studio would turn around and go, You know what? We're going to put it on video instead of theaters.' They did that all the time. There's nothing new in that.feedback

Christopher Nolan

Netflix has a bizarre aversion to supporting theatrical films. They have this mindless policy of everything having to be simultaneously streamed and released, which is obviously an untenable model for theatrical presentation. So they're not even getting in the game, and I think they're missing a huge opportunity.feedback

Christopher Nolan

You can see that Amazon is very clearly happy to not make that same mistake. The theaters have a 90-day window. It's a perfectly usable model. It's terrific.feedback

Nicola Hassapis

We know rationally that this kind of black-and-white thinking isn't realistic or sustainable – humans aren't machines – but we buy into the false dichotomy anyway. And not only do we beat ourselves up about it, we judge other people for it. There are a lot of things to worry about right now, but taking 45 minutes to watch an episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' on Netflix shouldn't be one of them.feedback

Matt Groening - Simpsons

Ultimately, Disenchantment' will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you.feedback

It was this crazy mashup of the grit and that hard, rated-R grind of Training Day ... but then smashed with Lord of the Rings. You never get to be racist when you're black! You're like look man, I don't want no Orcs in my car!feedback

David Ayer

I was able to do some real (expletive). I was able to tell a real story. I was able to do my thing.feedback

Jim Cramer

These are all new earnings per share boosters that give you more reason to buy the darned stock. Sears, its pathetic partner, doesn't have that much left, but it does have one of the best brand names in appliances. They haven't savaged that. Kenmore's still good. You put Kenmore together with Amazon, you throw in Alexa so you can scream at your washing machine all you want to turn on, and voila, you're off to the races.feedback

Jim Cramer

Now, I'm not saying these stocks can't go down – Alphabet and Netflix both declined [Thursday]. I'm saying that they just keep making news, generating actual events and products that are indeed additive to earnings. Raising-numbers FANG. As long as that continues to happen, these stocks can continue to go higher, and you shouldn't feel foolish for pulling the trigger because they seem to introduce needle movers every single day of the week.feedback

Jim Cramer

Okja was Netflix's final release of the second quarter and I think it's the film that put international sign-ups over the top of domestics. Right story, right publicity, fabulous knowledge of South Korean culture, all things that the conventional studios reject or just don't even know how to do.feedback

Dick Costolo - Twitter

It's rough. You've got companies like Netflix, like Amazon, that can bring billions of dollars to bear on content. You don't have to always pick winners, you can just make a lot of picks. With shareholder constraints, it's a lot harder to do that.feedback

Will Smith

Netflix, I'm sure this will end soon but, they give you money to go make the movie you want to make. There is a difference between seeing a movie in a theater and seeing it on Netflix. But it's a different thing like it was a different thing in the early days of film, when you were on stage and there were stage plays, and then you went from stage plays to filmed entertainment. But then there's a different medium.feedback

We need to employ the very best. They help make the BBC what it is. That's the business we're in. And of course, we're in a market that is now even more competitive than ever. A decade ago it might have been just ITV or Sky or commercial radio. But now it's Netflix, Amazon or Apple.feedback

Tony Hall - BBC

A word of warning. You will of course draw your own conclusions ... But ... comparing people's pay is not straightforward. Very few do precisely the same thing - people working at the same show may have other - or different - commitments. We need to employ the very best - stars, great presenters, writers, actors, correspondents . We're in a market that is now even more competitive than ever. A decade ago it might have been just ITV or Sky or commercial radio. But now it's Netflix, Amazon or Apple.feedback

Reed Hastings - Netflix

I think in 10 years we're going to think about our businesses, not just the real estate business, but also a very significant data business, and I think that data is going to help our customers, it's going to help our own decision-making, and who knows? If we're really successful at this, it could be a separate business that could be valued separately by the market. It's way too early to get that far ahead of our speed, but I'm really excited about those opportunities.feedback

Jim Cramer

As Reed says, Negative free cash flow will be an indicator of enormous success. In other words, Netflix is an entertainment company but is being valued as a tech company, as money managers believe it's all well and good to lose money now if you're going to dominate later.feedback

Jim Cramer

It's the same model as Amazon. Money managers backed Amazon because they knew, at a certain point, if they wanted to, they could raise the price of Prime offerings to make more money. The more Netflix knows about what people love, what you love, the more it can scale that love into not profits – as so many thought were needed – but subscribers. And by that metric, do you know that the stock of Netflix remains undervalued? Which is why, even after this run, it is still not too late to buy Netflix.feedback

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

Its fine to say the system will change, but it changes gradually over 20 to 30 years, not overnight.feedback

Facebook figured out you use the internet to be able to tell personal narratives. Amazon figured out you use the internet to sell merchandise.
