Quotable

“It’s not Netflix that necessarily should be scared by Disney’s prominence. It’s all of the other streaming companies. Right now, with Paramount+ coming in a few weeks ago, now every single major media company is in the streaming business. And right now, we’re all sampling. But I promise you there is going to be a musical chairs moment and there’s not going to be chairs for everybody. And I think what consumers are going to do is have their Marie Kondo moment where they really ask themselves, is this service bringing me joy? And if it’s not, they’re going to dump it. And I certainly think that Netflix and Disney are both going to be left standing, and I wonder who else will be joining them.
– Netflix co-founder Marc Randolph on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.”
