    It all comes down to content, I don't believe Disney has produced that many hit movies.

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    It certainly looks like Netflix is in trouble.

    Well, after ten years and 1200+ rentals, I hope their multiple failures at streaming don't drag down their DVD/Blu-ray rental division, DVD dot com.

    For $16.20 a month I get 2-3 discs a week for the new movies going for $2.99 to $5.99 a pop from the streamers. And disc sets for full seasons of HBO, Starz and Showtime series, for the few original series that've interested me. Granted that it takes over six months or so for them to make it into the catalog. Without eating into my data cap.

    I do stream Amazon Prime and the free old movies and series on Roku and Tubi, tho. And signed up and off over the years for the Game of Thrones seasons (those discs up to season seven right now are at DVD dot com, season eight in six months or so). fuboTV for the cord-cutting content and beIN MotoGP and WSBK.

    As well, Netflix's disc catalog is without equal. They'd have to pay me to watch 99% of the tasteless garbage they stream anyhow.

    BTW, one The Disney+ rolls out, I wonder what's going to happen to their Hulu?

    Disney and Charter are talking about carriage fees, and the outcome could affect how much you pay for cable in the streaming era
