"Does Netflix have anything to worry about?"

I think the only thing Netflix has to worry about right now is it's own CEO and board making idiotic moves. You know, like 62% price increases or splitting (or not splitting) the company.

Unless you can actually replace cable or sat and stream ALL or most content (96%) for less than $10 a month this is just a fad. Problem is Hollywood is still locked in to the old system of distribution and NOT willing to lower fees and wanting tiered systems.

Hopefully... A big hopefully... This will be able to stream TV online. I like the idea of discovering new shows by flicking through channels. So hopefully this Vdio service will take the world by storm.

"We think people will love using Vdio."

This line alone will tell you they will fail.

Not a well written article.  Some of us have no clue what Rdio is, so saying something is similar to it means nothing.

Other question that goes unanswered - is it a premium content streaming service....meaning are they going to get killed by licensing agreements like Netflix presently is?

It really doesn't matter how many titles they are able to stream, if they have limited device support like Amazon does, they'll fail.

Like Netflic, Vdio lets you instantly watch TV and movies.

 im not sure if u meant that netflix only has about 1 good movie, which is true, or if it was a simple mistake
