Segment #4: Spin The Racks
- ^Netflix vs. Disney escalating:ABC exec Chinning Dungey’s move to the streamer signals a new front in Reed Hastings’ battle with Bob Iger in the run-up to the Mouse House digital competitor’s debut next year, Paul Bond reports:
+ Spending projection: Analyst Todd Juenger of Bernstein figures that Netflix will spend $11.9 billion in 2019 on content and $14.5 billion in 2020. But the 22 percent year-over-year increase will be easily manageable because Netflix adds more than 25 million subscribers worldwide each year, for an additional $3 billion in revenue annually.
+ Imitation is flattering: Following Disney’s live-action Jungle Book, which grossed $966 million globally in 2016, Netflix picked up Mowgli, Andy Serkis’ film based on the same Rudyard Kipling story that was made at Warner Bros, for example. Netflix also invested in developing comic book universes to lessen reliance on Marvel by paying $30 million to $50 million for Mark Millar’s Millarworld while also nabbing rights to Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Universe.
+ Uphill battle: Netflix will grow from its current 132.9 million U.S. users (as opposed to subscribers) to 169.3 million in 2022, per an eMarketer forecast. Amazon Video at No. 2 also has been at it for a lot longer than Disney, and it lags Netflix by about 53.5 million users stateside
However, notes eMarketer analyst Paul Verna, “If any company is in the position to catch up to Netflix, it’s Disney, not Amazon.”
