Of course Netflix does NOT pay royalties to filmmakers. No video rental
store pays royalties. This isn't the music business. Netflix is a wholesale
buyer of titles just like anyone else. As far as exclusivity goes - not sure
what deal you are being offered by them but you shouldn't be signing an
exclusive deal with them unless its for a window of exclusivity before being
widely available elsewhere. We sell all the titles we distribute to Netflix
- they pay on time and are a great company.
