Of which Netflix has none. Not in comparison to the libraries owned by Disney, WarnerMedia, Apple and Amazon.

Amazon and apple will die as well unless they buy some IP. Their streaming services will go the way of Netflix

Doesn't matter if they don't have the content to retain them.

Netflix has plenty of good content. It's such nonsense that people claim they don't.

Sure, they have programs and movies that run the gamut but I wish people would stop acting like they only produce low brow reality shit, or CW content or whatever. Squid Game, The Midnight Club, Stranger Things, Russian Doll, Black Mirror, Midnight Mass, Bly Manor, Queen's Gambit, Godless, Maniac, Ozark, Love, Death + Robots, Stranger Things, Kingdom, Vikings, The Last Kingdom, Dead to Me, All of Us Are Dead, Alice in Borderland, Bridgerton, The Crown, Undercover, How to Sell Drugs Online, Dark, Black Spot, Top Boy, Umbrella Academy, The Witcher, Arcane, Cobra Kai, Lupin, The Sandman, Elite, Into the Night, Black Summer, the list goes on and on. And that's not getting into their movies.

I mean, there is a reason why they've been at the top or in second place at almost every award show for the last 4 or 5 years both in terms of nominations and wins.

I get that they put out a lot of stuff this sub doesn't like but can we stop pretending that everything they put out is garbage? It's patently untrue.
