Description

This is Episode 1 of an 8-part series on the brutal business battle between Netflix and Blockbuster, and later HBO.

It all started around 1997, with a guy named Marc Randolph and his mathematician friend Reed Hastings. Randolph and Hastings knew they’d have to take on Blockbuster, but what they didn’t anticipate was that their business model would take on network television and eventually change the entire movie industry.

This was an 8-year total war that left innumerable casualties in its wake: thousands of hollowed out buildings and economic losses in the billions.

I would love to see the old episodes redone as the new ones with more of the dialogue and interactive style format. However the show is exciting with a sense of thrill

Wish this thing got rid of most of the fluff and added actual substance. It tries way too hard to make the subject exciting when it's already interesting. Respect your viewers' collective intelligence.
