I believe we are about to see a major change in the streaming players. Netflix may actually take a large hit here soon, thanks to Disney. Disney is in the process of rolling out their own streaming platform.
This Forbes Site post is someone with similar thoughts as mine when it comes to Netflix and it’s future. His thought is Netflix has 175 days to make a major change or that’s it. I would agree, they have to make a major move or this is it.
By in large, Netflix is going to have a hard time competing. Disney has everything already in place. Great content, studios that produce hits, talented staff, and a massive user flowing. Not to mention all the kid content that will have parents signing up for Disney right off the bat, regardless of parents usage of Netflix or Disney+.
Should be an interesting year for the streaming world. It’s shocking to me it took Disney this long to get to market but better late then never. If Disney can pull it off, with all it’s content, not be too limiting, it will have a home run and put Netflix in a tricky spot. If they limit their content a lot, it will have a hard time gaining traction and Netflix will have more time to dominate the market.
