Netflix will struggle in the next few years, with disney and nbc trying to launch their own streaming services, and pulling their shows off from netflix.
Netflix is reportedly at risk of losing The Office. A report from The Wall Street Journal, contains the news, with the given reason of NBCUniversal’s impending launch of its own streaming service.
According to WSJ, NBCUniversal is considering taking back the rights to the show once its Netflix contract expires in 2021, so The Office can live exclusively on the network’s own forthcoming streaming platform. The move would be a massive loss for Netflix.
Ultimately, this is just the beginning of the inevitable battle that is set to unleash hell on our wallets once Disney+, Apple+, and the endless wave of competing streaming services launch, scattering every show across a thousand different platforms.
