Apple’s Move Into Content Creation Could Devastate Netflix And Amazon

Summary

Apple is reported to be recruiting executives to head up a content creation effort.

Apple will probably fund outside production companies to create Apple exclusive content as Netflix does.

This original content is expected to appear in a streaming video service for iTunes and Apple’s various devices. http://seekingalpha.com/article/3482136-apples-move-content-creation-devastate-netflix-amazon

重創 Netflix,問題不大;重創 Amazon? 不可能。

今年 6 月身價二百億美金的天王投資人 Carl Icahn 出清手上 Netflix 股票套現十億美金時,我就說過「Netflix是個不錯的視頻平台,我也是忠實用戶。但它的 China story 一點都不靠譜,目前21倍的股價淨值比、以及一直往200倍在衝的本益比,絲毫不具備合理性。再加上,Netflix距離構築一個完整、客戶不易離開的生態系,還遠得很…」 (補充:目前 NFLX 的 P/E 已經破 250 倍了)請參https://www.facebook.com/790294164/posts/10153450172144165

Netflix 所提供的服務,滿足了人們日常生活裡的一小部分需求;但其可替代性,很高。

Amazon 呢?

當然,Apple 有二千億美元的現金部位還有一大部分停泊在美國境外,挪一部分買授權或製作獨家內容毫不費力。像我之前提到Netflix 用十億美金鎖了 Epix 兩年獨家內容這招,Apple 更是玩得起,再結合 Apple TV 搞軟硬補貼同時配合全球電信商去推相關收視資費方案,也挺合理。但是,這樣最多也只能戳破 Netflix 的泡沫吧? 我的預測是,這對 Amazon 股價之影響,連 5% 都沒有,要怎麼重創?
