Streaming Service Wars: Taking Down Netflix

A long time ago, in a prosperous cable tv industry far far away… Netflix video streaming was born, and thus, the streaming service war began. Before we get into that however, lets see how we got there. Since 1948, when cable first started broadcasting on televisions across multiple states, we’ve all been immersed in its glory. Over the following few decades, many major networks came to life. By 1998, there were about 171 different cable networks for us to choose from. Looking back, life was probably good for the cable companies around the early 2000s. They were making billions of dollars and consumers had hundreds of channel options, not to mention, great quality content. Enter Netflix. Around 1998 when cable providers were innovating by introducing cable & internet broadband services, Netflix went live with their online DVD rental service. For the next few years they quietly gained subscribers and by 2003 they had hit 1 million users while simultaneously receiving big bucks from investors. Below is a short timeline of the major events that came …

‘D-Day’ is for Disney

Disney has officially absorbed Fox Studios and more recently has announced the launch of it’s streaming platform Disney+.  What does this mean for streaming services across the board? In my humble opinion? The F$%&$& end of days! Yes, I like anyone else, am very excited for this to go live in November. We are talking every Disney movie, Star Wars, Pixar, and Marvel all in one place! Not to mention the original (and damn expensive) content that will be premiering as well. However, with the birth of this new streaming service we could be seeing the extinction of others. For years now Netflix has pretty much had no challengers for the grip they hold on streaming entertainment. However, Disney going independent means all of their properties on Netflix have either been/will be removed or have been cancelled (all Marvel series).  Oh, and they’re not the only ones getting ready for battle! As a response to Disney’s announcement, Warner Bros. Entertainment has announced that they TOO will be launching their own platform. This means that all …
