Netflix has transformed the media industry in a little more than a decade, essentially because of all the content it possesses. It is the desire for more content of their own that is seeing companies such as Amazon and Verizon casting their eyes over the content assets owned by the Murdoch family’s 21st Century Fox. Investors clearly think that the Murdochs are interested in doing some type of deal, with shares in 21st Century Fox having risen by around 18 per cent in the last two weeks.

An ABC spokesman has defended the public broadcaster’s decision to produce a second series of drama "Glitch" in partnership with Netflix. The US-based subscription video-on-demand provider is believed to be contributing about 15 per cent of the production costs. Netflix will stream the series outside of the Australian market at the same time as it is broadcast by the ABC. The deal has been questioned by Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner and Nine Entertainment Company CEO Hugh Marks.
