IHS Markit says that for Apple, this could come as a major disadvantage, as various services vie for screen time on the massive number of devices now capable of media streaming.

HBO Max has Gremlins spin-off Secrets of the Mogwai, while Apple is combining Sci-Fi and Crime with Drama. For Disney+, Children & Family content will dominate alongside Sci-Fi & Fantasy. Disney+ originals are being used to drive early subscriber growth, leveraging well-known brands such as Marvel super-hero titles Loki and The Falcon & the Winter Soldier and Toy Story spin-off Lamp Life. – Broadband TV News » http://dlvr.it/RDGPS3

Netflix Loses Title as No. 1 Bandwidth-Eating Application

In the Americas, Netflix’s share of downstream traffic for the first six months of 2019 was 12.9% — dropping from last year’s 19.1% share — putting it in third place behind HTTP media streaming and operator-delivered video.
