NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- At some point, the inanity must stop. Because, you just better believe, boy, somebody's gonna get hurt tonight.It's all fun and games until the stock stops going up ... abruptly. Until somebody gets caught chasing Netflix (NFLX - Get Report), without realized or on-paper gains, and gets run over on the wrong side of the trade. Just the way it went down in 2011 when NFLX inanity pegged the height of insanity.
Is Netflix's Latest Rerun Stream 'Exclusive?'How does Netflix define the word "exclusive?" Will the company ever stop playing a game of semantics with us? Or is the media just getting things wrong? Case in point: Here's how Variety, a well-respected publication, frames Netflix's recent deal with Showtime to stream reruns of Dexter:
Under the multiyear pact, Netflix will be the exclusive Internet subscription VOD distributor of the series . CBS also will sell TV syndication rights for "Dexter" to a cable network, with details yet to be announced (emphasis added).So, does this mean that Showtime, a division of CBS (CBS - Get Report), will pull full seasons of the show from Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) iTunes? Or will it remove Dexter from the Showtime everywhere app? I have queried Netflix's Investor Relations department -- cc: Reed Hastings -- to find out, but have yet to receive a response.
