Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Seems a decent enough offer for Now TV and 4K box.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I read this recently and agree with quite a few of the points regarding Netflix and its future.

Yes, it's certainly a costly proposition to rely on originals to sell a platform because it needs a high level of continuing investment.

However, this weakness is also their strength because in the end, I think people will be more attracted to a streaming service that is continually adding good quality new stuff to its platform than one relying more on older material with much less new stuff.

I, for one, will only subscribe to the Hulu part of Disney if it continually replenishes its extensive library with new programmes. I am not the least bit interested in watching films or old TV series again - once I've seen them, that's it for me.

I think that in the medium term, most multiple subscribers will be paying money for Netflix, Amazon and Disney. There is not such an extensive library on StarzPlay so it will be interesting to see how they fare over time.

Those who can only afford to subscribe to one service might swap between them or simply choose the cheaper options.

However, I think any rumours of Netflix's decline are premature.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

But what happens should growth stall when other big players launch their services?

Ahhh, ok. I suppose a VPN could get round this, but Netflix have now started to block VPN's from their system, so other companies might be doing this too.

I think you are being unfair. The shareholders will be hoping for a takeover and they can cash out before the bubble bursts.
