2 New Threats in the War on Netflix

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which research analyst Lyons George and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

In the wake of a recently closed content deal, which grew its movie and television library to a daunting 17,000 titles, Amazon Prime is better poised than ever to snatch screen-gazers away from Netflix. And while that development might not be too much of a surprise, what the all-but-forgotten cable companies are doing is. Fool analysts Lyons and Isaac discuss a surprising new move by the DISH Network, the rise of "TV Everywhere," and the mounting evidence that Netflix -- the original television disrupter -- might be in for a taste of its own medicine.

Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
