It’s kind sad from where I’m standing...but who do you think will win the battle?
It’s kind sad from where I’m standing...but who do you think will win the battle?
- Disney / Eng FBRA54Meh. Streaming content is not a zero sum game. The question isn’t which one will win but how many households will only choose 1 option. I know we will be keeping Netflix and adding Disney+. I don’t see a large percentage of people deciding to cancel Netflix and move entirely over to Disney+, not while Disney is planning on spending a measly $1B in new content for streaming in 2020. Netflix releases a ton of original content (what, $20B/year). Disney has all the old talent. Netflix has all the new talent. Both have value to consumers.
- I thought that Disney is producing television and movie content all the time across all their brands and they could just load that up on Disney+. Did you see how many television networks and movie studios they own that are churning out content 24/7/365? Way more than Netflix could ever achieve!
- Netflix Johnny5This is correct. Not a zero sum game. I’m not sure why this is so hard to understand. Do you really need to cancel another service you are using regularly to add a $6.99 service???
Also I think people are vastly underestimating the sheer number of Netflix Originals being made or acquired each year. It’s a lot more than a major studio.
- Microsoft LordFarqudA platform full of re-runs and limited original content,
a company who now owns an existing streaming platform with a MASSIVE backlog of films with some of the most popular and lucrative franchises of all time and one that could deliver live sports as well.
Content is king.
- Wake me up when the gap of subscriber number is shrinking. At the end of 2018, it's 139M vs 0.
- Sprint ZeroHeroI unsubscribed Netflix the day I saw that aweful anti-bjp (under the garb of comedy ) show by Hassan Mihnaj. The Congress lies and propaganda that Netflix has been spreading is astounding to the point it makes one wonder how much they have been paid to make such content. A lot of my friends left Netflix for this reason as well. Why would I pay per month to see such propaganda!?
