Netflix Adds Subscribers, But Pressure Increases

Announcing its results Wednesday, Netflix said Google trends data revealed more people are searching more often for The Witcher than The Morning Show, Jack Ryan (Amazon) or The Mandalorian (Disney+).

Overall, Netflix added 8.8 million subscribers worldwide during the final quarter of 2019. However, CEO Reed Hastings conceded that the arrival of Disney+ does put more pressure on his firm. “It takes away a little bit from us,” he said. “But again, most of the growth in the future is coming out of linear TV.”

Conveniently enough, the first two were released for macOS, though I don’t know if they are still playable since Catalina dropped 32-bit support.


can’t edit this for some reason, but it should read “the first two Witcher games were released for macOS”
