By Timothy B. Smith ·

Netflix is opening up another front in its ongoing battle with HBO: comedy. The New York Times reports that Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari’s upcoming special Buried Alive will debut on Netflix on November 1st, making it the highest profile stand-up special on the service to date.

Netflix get’s it. If I had the money, I’d buy Netflix stock, because they’ve done nothing but make great decisions in the past year.

I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the company in the next year. I see very good things.
