Probably because, as TheStreet reported exclusively in late October, it's not going to happen anytime soon (if ever) or in any meaningful way. In fact, rumors of "talks" with cable companies that Netflix did nothing to squash were just that. Figments of the media's imagination.
Of course, when something blows up in Netflix's face, there's nary a peep from a vast majority of the media pointing it out. If the media can spin Netflix news or rumor positive, they'll do it incessantly, as with the Netflix Could Come to Cable fairy tale.
You might not care about this flavor of hack journalism with respect to Netflix, but you should. Someday it will color an issue that matters to you and maybe even the world.
Anyhow, on Oct. 31, in the same story as the one where we debunked the Netflix to cable myth, TheStreet noted:
Expect more deals like the Comcast one with basic cable, basic Internet, a cable-company backed streaming offering, HBO and HBO GO to appear soon. This is not what Netflix wants, but when Time Warner Cable, for example, announces a similar package (and I'm almost certain it will) it's likely to include HBO, not Netflix.
