WarnerMedia Streaming Service Will Launch Domestically First

WarnerMedia is hoping that its direct-to-consumer offering will enable it to become a major player in a space currently dominated by Netflix. Unveiling those plans last month, CEO John Stankey said the platform would be in place by the end of 2019. That would pit the company against not just Netflix, Amazon and other existing OTT services but also Disney, which intends to debut its own streaming service, Disney+, late next year. – Brent Lang & Henry Chu, Variety https://ift.tt/2Q1W3Nj
