Cantor Fitzgerald on Tuesday issued a company update on Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) after reports of an increase momentum in television bundling, which industry experts believe will hasten the migration to Internet TV.

Netflix is rated as a Buy with a price target raised form $450 to $500.

Analysts Youssef Squali, Kip Paulson and Naved Khan wrote, "While it may take a few more years for it to play out in a big way, all indications are that momentum around TV unbundling and the migration to Internet TV is on the rise…several players are introducing Internet-based apps, in an effort to capture some of the millions of households adhering to these new offerings. Netflix may be the poster child of Internet TV, given its early mover advantage and scale at 57M subscribers worldwide."
