Go woke go br…oh apparently not.

From one garbage to another worse..

Netflix's wokeness will cause even more people to leave. I did after their content became unbearable to watch.

And join Disney+ even if they offer similar "woke" things? that would be a self defeating argument.

Isn’t Disney woke too? It’s a genuine question as anti-woke warriors have been getting really triggered and upset over Disney. I’m just going on their reactions.

Disney look to be doing okay here.

Interesting.

Have you seen the live action Mulan? It was super woke and unbearable to watch. I grew up watching the original animated version which should have been left alone but they had to ramp up the wokeness didn't they?

And just yesterday I read that Disney+ is raising prices by 37.5% at the end of the year… good bye to a heck of a lot of those new subscribers.

Can’t stand the woke stuff… at least Narcos, Vikings, Ozarks, F is for Family, Paradise Police etc we’re not woke… or did I miss something?

did try watch some sci-if show on Netflix, characters were just ridiculous

Naw, I blew off Disney, they can keep their woke stuff. I'm cool with Netflix and Amazon, Apple seems to be more interesting, monitoring them see how they do and if they get too radical, I'll dump them as well.

and yet Disney is making record profits, seems your so called wokness isnt even a thing, at least to people that have money to spend. Bet FL governor is fuming that is games have done nothing to Disney LOL

That’s great for Disney, still many people are giving Disney the finger.

Yeah, it does in my house. :D

Though there is some crossover, I think Netflix and Disney appeal to a different demographic. Disney viewers may be younger than the average Netflix viewer. More children. I think in the future the difference will narrow with Disney providing similar overall content as Netflix, Amazon, etc.

Who said anything about joining Disney? Where did I write that?? I would rather pick my eyes out with a spoon than watch the utter dross Disney is providing.

Wtf Japan

Did I ever write it will cause everyone to leave??? Those with a more refined cultural palate will ditch Netflix whilst at the same time have no desire to join Disney.

I am sure Disney is raking it in. Easy money .

As Mark twain said ' heaven for the climate, hell for the company.'

Read that as you may

From the 900,000 subscribers that Netflix lost in the last couple of months bill of it came from its own decision to pull out from the Russian market. In fact 700,000 plus subscribers were lost by pulling out from Russia! Actions have consequences. So globally Netflix just lost less than 200,000 subscribers. That is understandable as people have been returning back to the office and going out for socializing after being stuck inside during the pandemic. So many don’t have time to watch Netflix anymore. Disney plus has been picking up subscribers since it’s new and people are curious about it especially the Disney fans but this is eventually going to level up and the growth will stop. It’s just common sense as to how the world works!
