Imho this was coming and probably unavoidable. Approaching a quarter billion subscribers in a world that is full of streaming content choices, even free ones. Surveys suggest Netflix puts on the most ‘liked’ content. Opinions will obviously vary on that but the rising subscription cost coupled with streaming choice saturation is a tough sell to hold onto that almost quarter billion subscribers. No doubt growing at the rate it was was/is nearly unsustainable and recessing numbers IMHO more likely. Even tougher for Netflix is it is only streaming(why I stayed away from long term investment in the stock). Amazon, Google, Apple, Disney, CBSViacom to name some. Multi product corporations that can leverage wider offerings as well as fund streaming as a revenue loss especially the first 3 in the list (I believe Apple is losing money on AppkeTV+, there has always been suggestion that Prime is not profitable as a standalone). But Netflix is far from dead. One year ago they were the grand king of the mountain. Now they’re stale leftovers. In reality they were never as good as CW said they were and not as bad as CW says they are now. But a standalone streaming company fighting Apple’s mega cash expenditures on content creation which is raising all production cost? That’s imho Netflix’s big weakness, fighting against the mega corporation deep pockets.
