    Chasing China is utterly pointless.

    1) The market is deliberately stacked against foreign companies in favor of domestics.

    2) The Chinese state heavily censors the media and would deem much of Netflix content unsuitable for consumption. So this means Netflix would have to make content that the government approves of putting it in no different a position than any of the domestic Netflix clones.

    Netflix could face a backlash if if started putting in the typical Chine pandering and bootlicking that infects some big movies (though the smarter ones edit this out from international releases).

    I agree with Kato2, instead of China maybe focus more on other more heavily populated countries like India and such where the government censorship isn't so obvious.

    While it is a pity to abandon such a large market but by doing so, you'd avoid a lot more problems. Anybody remember Apple losing a court case over their iPhone trademark to some no name Chinese company in China?
