According to Netflix, more people are searching for its show The Witcher more often than shows from its competitors. This includes Apple TV+’s flagship series (via AP).
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.”
