A TRIO OF CELEBRITIES IN TRIBECA

The three men, who are among the most famous and influential in the world, were celebrating Obama's recent multi-million dollar deal with Netflix.

Curiously enough, one of Netflix's chief rivals is Tim Cook's Apple. Business and friendship make strange bedfellows, and even stranger dining companions.

CHOWING DOWN ON $21 DOLLAR BURGERS

The men had dinner at the fashionable French restaurant, where a good old American burger and fries can set a customer back $21, and $50 for a steak.

NETFLIX - BATTLE OF THE TITANS

Netflix is girding itself up for battle, as rivals like Apple and Disney go online next month with cheaper alternatives. Apple will be charging  $5 per month for its services, while Disney offering its vast library of films and TV shows for $7 per month. Netflix's packet costs $13 per month. 

BARACK OBAMA - NETFLIX'S SECRET WEAPON

It may be that Netflix is counting on boosting its appeal with its original contents, including programs produced by the Obamas which they hope will have a wide popular appeal.

In the meantime, the three men had a  pleasant and friendly dinner, but as to what they talked about, that will always remain a mystery.

MICHELLE AND BARACK OBAMA MAKE A DEAL WITH NETFLIX

Michelle and Barrack Obama have entered into a production partnership with Netflix.  

The Obamas' ‘Higher Ground Productions’ company has agreed to produce content for the popular streaming site.

This will include scripted and unscripted series, and documentaries focusing on themes and issues which were fundamental to Obama during his Presidency.

It will be interesting to see what the collaboration between the two companies will offer the audiences eager for novelty, and thought-provoking content.
