For the past years, Netflix has been the one true streaming behemoth, gobbling up its competition. Not only are they producing original & quality content, they are also banging in the big bucks internationally. Additionally, rights of popular overseas' series are acquired to expand their catalogue.

Netflix strategically targeted the Spanish & Korean audience with popular series like Elite, Kingdom & many more.

Below are the current series that I'm fixated on. Too many if you ask me.

Apple will have a torrid time trying to surpass Netflix, since they have already gained so much traction, enjoying the first movers' advantage. Not forgetting Amazon prime video, etc.

However, Apple has an enormous war chest, hoards of cash generated throughout their glory iPhone years, to the tune of $240 Billion.

How much money are Apple gamed to pump into this venture, because we know Apple is one of, if not the most, recognisable brands globally, and their offerings are always snapped up as soon as they're released.

No doubt, the greatest beneficiaries will be the audiences, even more spoiled for choice. Sure is tough having to decide what to watch huh, poor you!

This might also kill the other TV players and Netflix if it introduced the right way.

Well, Apple​ has Oprah, JJ Abrams & Big Bird on their side.

However, the market is big enough for sharing. It all boils down to whose contents' better. Also it's hard to disrupt the disrupter?! Hahahha

Why? It's a healthy competition and can only benefit consumers no?

Because it's a duopoly. In most cases it more profitable than a monopoly, because most people are not capable of realizing they are being played.

du·op·o·ly

/d(y)o͞oˈäpəlē/

noun

a situation in which two suppliers dominate the market for a commodity or service.

Hahahah don't have to flex your dictionary prowess. I know sth as basic as 'du·op·o·ly'.

It's not a duopoly in this case. Many other streaming services like Amazon Prime, YouTube, Hulu, etc. and now Disney Plus.

At the end of day, the ball is in the consumers' hands. If they wish to watch, they pay. And this is sth millennials have no trouble doing.

Cheers.
