In Race to Beat Netflix, Studios Give Up Billions In Profits

The big gamble: Networks like Disney and WarnerMedia are launching their own direct-to-consumer services and, in some cases, pulling content from competing services (Netflix, etc.)

Estimated content spend from licensing:
1)
Netflix — $5B
2)
Amazon — $4B
3)
Facebook — $1B

Disney will forgo ≈ $500M annually from Netflix alone.

Captain Marvel will be the first Disney movie to stream exclusively on Disney+.

Top content spenders according to RBC Capital Markets:
1)
Disney — $23.8B
2)
AT&T — $14.3B
3)
Netflix — $14.0B
