Netflix wants to partner with studios so they can offer their users current episodes of prime-time television shows and they are willing to pay a hefty price.

Rumors are that Netflix is offering $100,000 per episode for the rights to stream this content.

Money isn't what is holding this deal up, the biggest hurdle is trying to figure out who actually has the rights to sell.

Networks say they have the distribution rights to allow Netflix to stream mid-season, but production companies make the same claim and want to sell the rights to Netflix themselves.
