Netflix is big. And growing. But to continue that march forward, they're going to need to keep finding new and better content to offer to consumers. Word now is that the company is willing to pay somewhere between $75,000 and $100,000 per episode of television shows.

To date, Netflix has only spent $350 million on gaining rights to TV shows and movies.
