Content companies like Disney/Fox and Warner Media are moving to self-distribute their very own content; tech companies such as Apple, Amazon, and others are currently investing in premium content to improve their distribution platforms. Amid these massive competitors on either side and traditional media companies, our job would be to create Netflix stand out that whenever consumers have spare time, they choose to invest it with our service.”
