My kids already do that with their friends using their Xbox. At the very bottom of the screen there are little icons for whomever is watching with them. They can chat away with their cousins, friends, etc. while they all watch the same movie they have all logged in to see. They do it every couple of weeks or so.
Not exactly an original idea...
Of course it is not an original idea. As I wrote in the column, “I am probably not unique in that regard..”
I said that I suspect there are millions out there who would like an integration with Skype and Netflix.
What you are referring to is not exactly what I suggested b ut close and it supports my point.
My objective is not to take credit for being the inventor of such a service. I am a different brand of shareholder activist. I can’t buy a seat on the board of companies like Netflix. However, I take positions in companies (with full disclosure) and I publish or have published - columns that can help promote new services or changes within companies to unlock value and/or increase revenue and earnings.
