8.7m US Netflix subs may cancel for Disney+

Netflix could lose 15% of subs to Disney+ based on survey Survey Finds 8.7M Netflix Subscribers May Switch To Disney+ (NASDAQ:NFLX)(NYSE:DIS)
Russell Knight | 27 April, 2019, 11:28

Parents of young kids were more than twice as likely as non-parents to say they would prefer Disney+ over Netflix.

"We asked a range of questions to find out if customers were interested in what Disney+ is going to be offering and if the new service would influence their decision to continue their Netflix subscription", the report said.

The video service added 9.6 million subscribers worldwide during the first quarter of 2019, topping the projections of both Netflix's own management and Wall Street analysts. In 2017, almost 20 percent of Netflix users told Streaming Observer they were considering dropping their subscription after Disney pulled its content from the platform.

"With just under 14.5% of subscribers indicating they might leave the service, that represents almost 9 million customers". These targets by Netflix fall below the analyst's forecasts which have made it lose its share price by 1.8% recently, in after-hours trading.

Netflix tested the bounds of its popularity with a recent price hike, that raised the price of its most popular plan from $11 to $13 monthly.

Why the battle against climate change has reached a tipping point
Police have said they have a "robust" plan in place ahead of a proposed climate change protest in Parliament Square. Extinction Rebellion announced that it would be ending the London climate change protests willingly on Thursday.

Ted Sarandos, the Netflix content officer said that they will soon disclose the information about the numbers of viewership in company. It says "The Umbrella Academy" was viewed by 45 million people during the first four weeks of its release.

Netflix's content strategy appears to be paying off.

The survey was conducted on the heels of Disney unveiling the streaming service proper in April.

Disney's new streaming service launches in November, and there's been a lot of speculation about how it could affect Netflix. Curators of streaming services could match content based on forthcoming holidays or entertainment events (music festivals, award ceremonies) or actors that recently passed away so that viewers can binge-watch their work in a collection or a series of episodes.
