Netflix sees Google TV as growth opportunity

Amid the hoopla of Netflix's (Nasdaq: NFLX) growing subscriber base which now rivals Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) and its attraction to Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) TV users, there's this nugget: Netflix sees Google TV as a "big growth" opportunity along with BluRay players and smart TVs.

The Google TV concept "is powerful" and Netflix is "confident that they will be very successful and we are investing in our Google TV application," the company said in an earnings release covered by AppleInsider.

Of course the Apple-based publication had its own take on the situation, noting that Google TV "has been a poorly managed disaster that consumers don't seem to see the value in" before conceding "Apple's own TV product also took years to gain adoption."
