So, with Lightbox getting its own subforum (along with other single providers like NEON and TIVO), might we expect Netflix to get it's own subbie?

Not sure what the criteria are/were for Lightbox (# of subscribers, $ changing hands...) but might presume that Netflix should meet them too given that it's now officially in NZ. This would enable Netflix specific discussion, which would be helpful for the same reasons given as LB.

The criteria is simple: is the company willing to engage with users or do we have a significant number of users? I don't think Netflix currently meet either. Lightbox asked to have a new forum created and offered to have three people to work with our users. If Netflix approaches us this can happen.

And no money changed hands. I dislike the insinuation that we would be less than ethical. We run advertising sure but we don't sell our space like that.

Thanks for the explanation, M. Sorry 'bout the insinuation, it was a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I can see how it could be taken (and I am pleased and not at all surprised to see that the ethics are above rapproach :) )
