Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) still stands above all the other streaming networks, with 220 million subscribers and $8 billion in revenue. While it tackles these issues from atop its precarious perch, there's a major drawback that it has compared to almost all of its competition -- and it makes owning Netflix stock look a bit risky right now.
