Abstract:

Reed Hastings transformed the way we see movies and television; twice. In 1997, the Californian entrepreneur combined DVDs and the US Post Office to create Netflix - the first online DVD movie rental business. Eight years later, he reinvented his own company with a new service - streaming movies and television shows directly through the internet. Game Changers chronicles Hastings from the launch of his first company - a software tools startup - through the battles and triumphs of Netflix. It captures the brutal war of attrition that pitted video rental giant, Blockbuster, against the upstart Netflix. It maps out the lines in the looming battle for streaming against behemoths Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook. Interviews with a co-founder, one of the first investors, and a board member of Hastings' first company document the meteoric rise of a young Hastings. Details of the pitched battle between Netflix and Blockbuster are brought to life through interviews with Mitch Lowe, co-founder of Netflix, and John Antioco, the former CEO of Blockbuster. Additional interviews include technology journalist Cliff Edwards, and analyst Michael Pachter, who explains exactly why he once called Netflix "a worthless piece of crap."
