HBO is a strong brand name though and was selected ahead of Warner Bros for its streaming service. So I wouldn't expect them to drop it any time soon.

Netflix could lose 750,000 UK subscribers as Disney takes control of hit shows

Netflix is facing a fight to stop as many as 750,000 UK subscribers defecting as its rival Disney takes back exclusive control of hits such as Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother and Sons of Anarchy to bolster its own service

The way Netflix are being aggressive with VPNs which end up blocking residential ip addresses too i can see Netflix losing a lot more subscribers.

750,000 people could leave Netflix if the show they’ve already watched leaves Netflix? That’s a bit of a stretch.

I don’t think they’re going to be excessively concerned about this. Sure they’d rather not lose subs but their transition from video library to original content creator is hardly news. They will think that in the long run their catalogue of material they have commissioned and own will mitigate the worst of that loss.

I don't agree with the figure either , they might lose some subscribers but not that amount.


Disney Takes Exclusive WWE Network Streaming Rights In Indonesia, A Potential Prelude To Deals In Other Territories

Quote:
Disney and the WWE have reached a deal for the WWE Network to stream exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar in Indonesia, a potential prelude to other global pacts.

The move follows that of the WWE Network, a pioneering direct-to-consumer service, to NBCUniversal’s Peacock in the U.S. last spring. That $1 billion agreement netted the WWE a significant revenue boost and execs have signaled plans to leverage streaming rights around the world. The Indonesia setup kicks off on January 30 with the Royal Rumble, an annual event held in Saudi Arabia.

Similar to the Peacock arrangement, all WWE live events will be available on Disney+ Hotstar as part of a standard subscription, at no additional cost. Programming will stream in Indonesia’s local language, Bahasa Indonesia, as well as in English

The pact is the first streaming agreement reached directly between Disney and the WWE, but the companies are understood to have held preliminary discussions for other territories
