Ironically, brand awareness is found on large mainstream platforms, not niche platforms with a few hundred thousand homes. Which means the soon to be fragmented world of streaming will struggle to achieve it.
I doubt Disney+ will struggle achieving brand awareness.

Will their new TV series in the future? Who knows. Given a restricted viewership it's certainly going to be harder than where their content agreements presently gives them their reputation is on the biggest providers in the vast majority of countries.

I'd prefer it if they diverted that money into even more originals, frankly. Netflix doesn't need all that archive material in my view.

I appreciate that some of these old series are popular, but I think most of these will be reclaimed for different streamers.

Netflix has so much going for it, and they've developed so much 'original' material now, I think they should concentrate their efforts there.

They may not have any other choice!

Why? as l am sure they would not have paid the astronomical amounts that they paid for it unless they knew it was was probably going to be one of their most watched shows in the coming years once the contract starts.

What one thinks might happen invariably does not happen as thought you would have learnt that by now.

Having Originals does not make a streamer as having a broad and varied library of content does that.

If the archive material is no longer available, they don't have much choice, Den.What else would you have Netflix do?

Personally, I only get Netflix for the originals.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Before retirement, many of us lived very busy lives which prevented us from watching the latest productions on TV.

Now with more spare time, I greatly enjoy what I consider to be excellently produced series that I have not previously viewed even though the picture quality may fall below modern standards. Once such series is Kavanagh QC.

Thus, some people appreciate series repeated whether on the conventional channels or on the streaming services.

Its no good Netflix just concentrating on originals as there is still plenty of archived content Netflix will be able to lay their hands on at the right price of course.

OB seems to have the attitude of one size fits all wherever one needs broad and varied content to please everybody... Just like the BBC of course...

Does Comcast have the rights to the name internationally though? In many territories it's licensed out to the other companies eg

In which case, there won't be a problem. I was responding to the observation that archive material would in future occupy other sites.

No, I don't think that. Everyone has different likes/dislikes. What I find funny is posts which say the UKTV channels and archive material are extremely popular and the next minute that Britbox will fail because there will be too much archive material on it.

Now, that is what I call contradictory!

I don't think so as Disney is the brand awareness name. You however will disagree as usual.
