DID YOU KNOW?
Netflix has been in operation since 1997? The company started out as an online DVD rental service. It pioneered the monthly-based subscription service even back then. A business model that it adopted when it started offering online streaming services. It took the online media streaming service by storm. It helped push online video streaming services to greater popularity. It was so popular and used all over the world that people coined the phrase "Netflix and chill" after it. Its Netflix Original programming has produced some amazing shows over the years. Other streaming services such as Hulu and Amazon Prime Video put up a good fight.
Disney recently announced its own online streaming service this year called Disney Plus. Considering it's Disney, this could be a serious threat to Netflix. By now, Netflix has a very sizable user base of around 140 million subscribers worldwide. All Disney-owned content has seen its removal from other streaming services. This included all MCU movies as well as all the Marvel TV shows that Netflix had before. We've already had a glimpse of all things Disney at the recently held D23 Expo this year. The announcement also included plenty of Disney Plus-related content, of course. When it launches, Disney Plus plans will start at $5.99 per month. That undercuts Netflix's current pricing of $8.99 per month for its basic plans. The coming months will be an interesting one for the industry. With the service launching on November 12, we won't have to wait long. So if you've been searching for a service and apps like Netflix, this might be what you've been waiting for.
