Reed Hastings

Netflix's founder might have taken a few lumps in 2012 from investors and subscribers, but he's responsible for the push in streaming entertainment—and could now be redefining people's relation with television.

The resurrection of "Arrested Development" (due to be available to streaming customers this year) shows that life can continue for critically acclaimed shows that fail to immediately find an audience. Meanwhile, Hastings' decision to outbid Starz for the rights to Disney movies and to present the Kevin Spacey series "House of Cards" showed he is anything but satisfied with Netflix's current place in the broadcast world.
