I doubt they are losing any sleep about this. The sooner they get away from the high overhead of physical media and postage rates, the sooner they can start seeing some truly staggering profit.

$110 million in profit from streaming in the last quarter is nothing to sneeze at.

I use and enjoy both services. I have watched more than a few good foreign films via streaming, all in quality HD.

Um... Where did you get that number? It was only $67 million in the US... Which was completely eaten up by their international expansion.
