On the face of it, Netflix losing subscribers may appear to be great news to its competitors, Disney+ and HBO Max. However, it may be a harbinger of things to come. It seems, that customers are price sensitive and too much of a squeeze on the part of the streaming service might compel many subscribers to terminate their subscriptions. Netflix announced that it is becoming stricter on account sharing, further, it may also be considering the launch of an ad-based subscription model, which may aggravate subscribers even more. Needless to say, things look precarious right now.
