The future of DC Universe will be clear the day it is put in the past
I’ve read so many things said on this forum from doom and gloom to overly optimistic but nobody knows what’s going to happen to this service or ANY service tomorrow.
They just launched a new Rewards program. It ends in September of this year. Something is happening in September. We don’t know what that is, but that’s as far into the future as even this service seems to be projecting.
Look at Walmart spending $3 billion on Jet. Now they are shuttering it a couple years later. That’s billions of dollars down a rathole. Who would have predicted that? Meanwhile, Walmart is showing major profits in their brick and mortar operation due to the pandemic. They are killing it in their main sector.
The only two streaming services that seem reasonably stable to me at the moment are Amazon – because they have ridiculous amounts of cash and Disney for the same reason. The latter is taking a lot of financial pain at the moment, but they own too many valuable IP to go under any time soon.
I wouldn’t be shocked if Netflix ends up in trouble someday – their balance sheet is wrecked and despite having 160+ million subscribers they are spending more than they make. In the financial business world, that doesn’t say much for longevity.
So, to the person who wrote above that if Netflix had a forum, you can bet there would be customers complaining, of course there would be. This is the internet, I’ve been here for a long, long time and report that people complain about everything everywhere they can. Sometimes they’re right, most times they’re wrong.
Nobody knows the future until it becomes the past.
