With the arrival of Apple TV+ and Disney+ next month, new and formidable "old-media" competitors to the existing Netflix darling will be vying for your eyeballs, here's how Netflix is planning to respond with new November releases.
Netflix is way ahead of them all, though, with $11 billion earmarked for spending on own shows and content this year, and $2 billion more just taken in debt for new movies. In any case, Apple will have way fewer movies and TV shows than the rest of the competition at launch, and Netflix doesn't seem to be too worried about the TV+ and Disney+ launches, as it said in a statement:
What’s coming to Netflix to counter their launches? You’ll be seeing a lot of Christmas titles added to Netflix throughout November as Netflix gears up for the holiday season.
No wonder, both Netflix and HBO are expected to remain kings of content for now, and we are listing all that is in on these two streaming platforms announced for November, the prequel month to the holiday season.
