Netflix just added 3.3 million more subscribers, the company said in a live Google Hangout Wednesday morning, making cable just that much more irrelevant with the news.

Netflix’s stock price has also rocketed up for the just finished fiscal quarter, which comes on the heels of the June 23rd announcement of a seven-to-one stock split.

Sounds like Netflix is taking a cue from Apple’s playbook on this one.

In desperation, T-Mobile tried a new approach: they decided to call themselves an “Un-carrier” and start offering untraditional no-contract, upgrade-anytime-you-want plans. And you know what? It’s really paying off for them.
