    They made that content without.

    TBH outside the odd show they make every often or so Netflix has been kinda barren when it comes to content

    All I watch in Netflix are Korean Dramas that are v good, aside from that Disney+ and HBOMax

    We rotate paid streaming services and limit them to just two or three at most a month. Disney+ has been an exception. Subscribe for a month, watch what has come out in the last three months or so, unsubscribe at the end of the month and move on to the next. It's better for us really and keeps things more focussed.

    For a lot of Asian drama stuff, I usually download from here if I can't get it via actual streaming services. Just make sure you have an adblocker. That said, Netflix are adding more all the time, and getting some that have already aired, so my sub continues to be justified, for now lol Disney+ also launched in Korea, and they had a big push for local content, some of it seems to be filtering through to other regions, though slowly.

    I don't feel like linking articles, easy enough to Google, but looks like the price hike isn't working in Netflix's favor. Not even a little bit.

    I think Netflix should expand their testing they have so far done in certain countries of a higher fee but shareable.
    I have the premium/best whatever account and I watch perhaps 3-4h/month and thus I share it or I would feel robbed.
    Actually I already do, where are their 4K content, not even their own productions are 4K... that the cost for outside 4K content is a tradeoff that Netflix deem not worth it I get but their own stuff. That is just plain dumb.

    Are we talking about the loss of subs recently? Honestly, I just put that down to people no longer being stuck at home in lockdown and have let their subs lapse because they have no need of it anymore.

    I did see that they're considering a cheaper subscription model that has ads, too, though.

    The drop is tied to the quarter. Actually can be seen in two quarters I think think. The price raise would definitely be a contributing factor.

    It wasn't just that they dropped 200,000 subs, it was also that Netflix predicted more losses moving forward. That's huge because for the FANG stocks, the value is all baked-in based on future growth expectations far more than traditional P/E.

    The trend for years was move to subscription services for companies simply because it generates so much revenue month after month. People forget to cancel, etc. But the recent trend has been the other direction with consumers realizing they've been overloaded with subscription services and cutting back. So I think this is less of a temporary blip and more of a sign of subscription fatigue. People are realizing they aren't going to be cornered into having 15 different video subscription services to get access to exclusive content. Two or three is more than enough for most consumers, and they're being more discerning about the ones they pick. CNN+ quickly found that out the hard way.

    I'm just staying subbed until Better Call Saul is done and then I'm cancelling until something decent comes along. I'll stick with Amazon Prime for the time being, i get more value from it.

    Yah right now it appears to be

    1. Covid change
    2. Competition
    3. Fragmenting of content to so many different services pulling their content to get a direct piece of the Netflix pie.
    4. Price.
    5. Acct Sharing.
    6. Russia.


    i dumped their stock right after the first couple waves were over and people started to "revolt" against lockdowns, mask, etc.

    Anyone who expected them to continue that kind of growth was kidding themselves.
    Buh Byeeeeeeeeeeee !!

    who would have thought pumping out a mixture of terrible shows and denmarks finest programming wouldn't be sustainable.

    Whoa now, they just put out a show in Japan where a camera crew follows around toddlers running errands for their parents on their own. (with a camera crew following)

    If that's not quality, compelling television, I don't know what is.

    I immediately tune out anyone that seriously uses the word 'woke'. It's an easy way to know which yt channels to block, for example. It's just a modern version of hate farming.

    Word on the street they are adding ads. So on top of not having the deep catalog or bundles of other platforms that are cheaper, they want you to watch ads too? Hulu with ads is $7. Netflix are you okay?
