Barnes and Noble has announced some interesting numbers. Since the 25th of December customers have ordered 150% more subscriptions than the total number sold over the entire previous 12 months. It amounts to a massive 650,000 in just two months.

This figure includes digital periodical subscriptions and single-issue e-magazines and e-newspapers from the NOOKnewsstand to NOOKcolor owners. Those are impressive numbers. No figures were released as to the number of NookColor devices that have been sold but the company says that sales “continue to be very strong.”

Netflix may have streaming-only subscriptions next yearNetflix CEO Reed Hastings says that by late this year or in 2010, Netflix might let users get rid of the red envelopes and subscribe just to their streaming service. Reed realizes that in order to maintain their current level of success, it has to “nail” the streaming aspect.

Most of us envision streaming becoming more popular in the coming years. It’s faster cheaper and it’s great for them if they can strong-arm studios into providing new releases for download. There was no talk of pricing, but Netflix has always been pretty fair.
