`Netflix teams with Starz to stream 2,500 movie titles' (!!!)

As if I didn't already sit in front of my computer or tv -- or both -- enough, I just stumbled across this good fortune:
Right off the bat, Starz's "Starz Play" lineup will contain hits like No Country for Old Men, Superbad and other recent hits. Can Netflix convince studios to release movies at the start of or during theatrical release? That would be a major coup -- but that's quite a paradigm shift for the movie studio industry as well.

Farewell friends, one step closer to reclusion.
