Disney's new streaming service was announced this week. To get a sense of the impact of this ad, it's good to know that this means Netflix will be left out. That is, Netflix will soon lose big titles from Pixar, Marvel or 21st Century Fox.
Disney + arrives on November 12 in the United States and during 2020 in Europe. That is, there is little time left to watch all this content before it leaves the service. After Netflix's stock has gone down with this release, the counterattack seems to be already in operation.
One of Netflix's big cards is Anime. The increasing popularity of this content has been noticeable over the last few years, and this has been one of the service's biggest bets. Just look around the catalog to see the increasingly strong bet on Anime.
Netflix to release five new anime series in 2019
The popular streaming service is full of classics like Fullmetal Alchemist, One Punch Man or Naruto. In addition, in March this year Netflix announced partnerships with three Japanese producers to launch five new series later this year.
To get a feel for it, Netflix produced five times more original content in 2018 than in 2016. As a result, it is likely that the streaming giant could spend $ 15 billion this year. By way of comparison, HBO usually spends 2 billion.
Anime may be Netflix's secret weapon
Obviously the content that will end up in Disney + is very much loved by Netflix users. And it is certain that the price will surely be lower. However, Netflix will remain globally unbeatable in its content.
The growing focus on Anime is yet another demonstration of how Netflix is aware of the market. Not only is this content increasingly sought after, but Disney + will have it as one of the biggest flaws in its catalog. It is a matter of time before we realize whether or not Disney + will affect the number of Netflix subscribers.
