Now it’s war. Before November, Netflix new releases had to contend with Amazon and to a lesser extent, Hulu. Come November? The battle will rage as Disney+, and Apple TV+ make their debut. Obviously, + was a hot commodity in the offices handling branding.
Each new service brings something new to the table. Disney+ has an unrivaled content catalog. Marvel Studios. LucasFilms. Disney. ABC. ESPN. The company effectively dominates the box office each year.
Apple? They are new to the game, but when you have over $200 billion in cash, a content catalog can be created in a hurry. The company already pulled off a major coup by snapping up the rights to Masters of the Air, the spiritual successor to Band of Brothers and The Pacific.
Netflix isn’t taking the challenge lying down, and November is filled with a broad selection of original content. On November 1, the streaming giant is premiering 13 original series, including the next season of Queer Eye and American Son, a Netflix Television Event.
If that’s not enough content, the third season of The Crown premieres on November 17. Then there’s Netflix’s biggest film commitment to date with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman on November 27. It’s a jammed packed November that needs a marketing video.
