Ex-Subscriber Survey Illustrates the Challenges Ahead for Netflix

NFLX

Ex-Subscriber Survey Illustrates the Challenges Ahead for Netflix | NASDAQ. Since first introducing its streaming service a dozen years ago, the rise of Netflix(NASDAQ: NFLX) as a streaming powerhouse has been nothing short of phenomenal. The company has gone from 7.5 million subscribers and $300 million in revenue in Q4 2007 to more than 158 million global subscribers and revenue of $5.2 billion in Q3 2019. Gone are the days when Netflix was the only streaming game in town, and the coming year could arguably be the company's most challenging yet. These lapsed subscribers were asked to pick from a list of reasons, choosing all those that applied. Forty-nine percent of the 1,005 respondents said the most recent price increase was the biggest factor.

How Netflix's CEO Says Investors Should Judge the Streaming War

NFLX DIS +1 more NFLX DIS AAPL

Consumers have a bevy of new streaming options to choose from over the next year, and many investors in consumer discretionary stocks are worried about subscribers leaving Netflix(NASDAQ: NFLX). Netflix has only added about 10 million U.S. subscribers over the last two years. But Netflix CEO Reed Hastings doesn't think subscriber numbers are the best way to judge success for the crop of new streaming services. The amount of time people spend actually engaged with each service is a good indication of the potential long-term value those services will create for their parent companies and investors. If every Comcast subscriber gets unfettered access to Peacock's best content through an ad-supported service, but nobody's actually watching it, then it's not producing value for the company. And if millions of people get a free year of Disney+ through Verizon, but they don't really care about the new originals or plan on rewatching every Marvel movie, they probably won't stick around and pay for the service on their own after a year. The question investors are trying to answer, then, is whether new services like Disney+, Apple TV+, HBO Max, and Peacock, among others, will take screen time away from video games like Fortnite, veteran streaming services like Netflix, or something else.

One week in, Netflix's stock is weathering Disney+

NFLX DIS

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Wall Street's reaction so far to Walt Disney Co's <DIS.N> long-awaited streaming service suggests investors believe the competition may not be as crushing as expected for entertainment rival Netflix Inc <NFLX.O>. Shares of Disney have surged 8% since the launch of Disney+ a week ago, helped along by 10 million sign-ups for the service in its first day. But during the same period, Netflix's stock recovered from an initial slump and is now up nearly 3%, with some investors betting the two companies' streaming offerings may be able to coexist. "I’m a consumer of both services and I can tell you that what my kids watch on Netflix is not what they watch on Disney+. Now I get it, and the market is reacting to that, appreciating the shares of both companies," said King Lip, chief investment strategist at Baker Avenue Asset Management in San Francisco. Netflix Chief Executive Reed Hastings warned in September that competition arising from the entrance of Apple <AAPL.O>, Disney and NBC to the global streaming market would spark a surge in content costs, adding to worries about Netflix's already slowing subscriber growth.

Your guide to using Netflix Parental Controls to restrict content for children (VIDEO)

NFLX

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 17 — National Film Development Corporation (Finas) has recently called for censorship of Netflix in Malaysia due to concerns by parents that children are watching uncensored content. He also added that uncensored content will provide a risk to the mind development of children if it is not started now. If Netflix censorship is needed to control what kids watch, Netflix already has existing parental controls to restrict content for younger viewers. From the report, it appears that a lot of Malaysian parents and even Finas are not aware of this key feature which Netflix has introduced to provide a safe space for kids online. For every new account, there’s a Kids profile that’s created by default. Parents can easily create additional profiles for their children and you can have a maximum of five profiles in one subscription. When you create a profile from the home screen, you can choose the maturity levels for TV shows and movies using the drop-down menu.
