SWOT Analysis Strengths Brand recognition Producing original TV series ex: House of Cards, with prominent actor Kevin Spacey Extensive customer data on file DVD rental cost so low that competitors don’t bother trying to emulate that part of their business. App is on all platforms – even the Kindle (device made by competitor Amazon) Partnered with start-up eyeIO as their 1 st customer – using their encoding technology to lower bitrate of their HD video streams, which helps them in the mobile market Weaknesses Older titles Expired contracts with Sony & Stars, resulting in lost videos Lost video provider EPIX to Amazon. Competition has more money Damaged reputation after attempting to increase fees and separate DVD & streaming video memberships. Revenue is still rising but streaming & subscribers are slowing = growth is slowing. Opportunities Collaborate with well-known actors to create more original series Bid for more popular TV titles Target/market to kids & young adults International expansion Partner with companies to develop Netflix programs specific to their platforms that will come pre-installed on all their devices Partner with cable & gaming companies to be an on-demand option for video & games. AppleTV Partnership Threats Competitors offering streaming video and bidding for exclusive rights ex: Amazon, HBO, TV networks Competitor partnerships (ex: Amazon & Epix) Higher licensing costs Biggest competitor, Amazon, now developing original programming Streaming video increasing; DVD rentals decreasing Movie & TV industry less willing to make exclusive deals with online video services. EPIX provides Disney videos to Amazon; Disney recently acquired Lucasfilm (& entire StarWars franchise).
