Film District, a newly-formed film studio and distributor worked out a deal with Netflix, Inc. to stream new movies over the Internet just a few months after they are released on DVDs. Under the terms of the agreement, new movies from Film District will be licensed exclusively to Netflix instead of appearing on premium cable channels. Industry observers believe this deal reflects the new realities of changing channels for movies from theaters, home videos, and cable pay TV to online streaming. Netflix also has a similar deal with Relativity Media, the movie company that financed the highly-acclaimed boxing movie, The Fighter. Given the rapid and dramatic changes occurring in film distribution channels, how might partnerships or alliances such as that between Netflix and Film District be helpful to either firm in managing their distribution channels?
