Huh. I already cancelled Hulu+ in anticipation of Disney+ (every show I was watching concluded until next season, not a big loss).
I'm not even sure this has anything to do with loyalty. I tried every major streaming service available to date and most of them are pretty much designed to actively drive users away. Eg. I've used 6+ months or so of HBO Now and Hulu each since 2013, usually for specific content pieces - and most of what I remember of that usage is associated with constant service and UX frustrations, rather than the content I watched.
This. It's absolutely not an either or, I'm quite excited for Disney+ but there's just no way it'd kill netflix for me.Disney+ is to Netflix what Nintendo is to Sony/Microsoft. It is not intended to be a direct competitor that replaces the service as your sole streaming product, it's intended to be an add-on, which is why it costs half the price. The premise of this article is stupid.
What's actually wrong with that, though? What is wrong with supporting a service you enjoy and hope continues to exist? I always use the same mechanic because he is trustworthy and reliable. I use the same electronics store cos their customer service has always been amazing. I sub to Spotify even though its UI could be better because I love the service and don't want it to be consumed by Apple Music or Amazon.
he loves some of the originals though. storybots and the new magical schoolbus are on his rotation when he watches something. Captain underpants and a few others he ends up watching as well (randomly She-Ra)
This poll (again, done by an investment firm) shows that the vast majority of those polled have no interest in having both, though, they are going to stick with Netflix and aren't even considering Disney+.You can get both services for under $20.00. The cost of either of the services is a lunch, and not a nice one. Even if you combined all the major services, you're still likely paying under what cable costs.
It's easy to be 'loyal' to something that costs almost nothing but is always there if you want it. I'll be loyal to Disney+ just because its easy access to a ton of things I love and want access to at any time. Netflix is similar. Even CBS All access. The amount they're charging for what you're getting is like stealing.
It's where you shoo the kids out of the room and turn on A Goofy Movie.
This. No way I'm giving up my goddamn Narcos for D+ stuff.
Its still far better. If anything, its close to the ala-carte version of cable that people had been asking for. You shouldnt be piling up on all these services and paying for them perpetually. Pick the ones that have the programming you want to watch and drop them when you are done. All it takes is a few clicks.
