Idk, but again, Disney is 10-15 years late. They're going to go through a lot of growing pains that Netflix has long overcome.

The status quo won't change. Netflix's supremacy is going nowhere.
Maybe, but when you consider how much content they own under the Disney Umbrella (Fox, ESPN, Marvel, etc), they will certainly be a formidable competitor.

" Disney Plus will include content from the Disney brand itself, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic. It'll also integrate programming from Fox -- all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be on Disney Plus starting on day one, and more titles like The Sound of Music, The Princess Bride and Malcolm in the Middle will join it in the first year. In August, Disney said that it will go further than that, "reimagining" past Fox franchises "for a new generation" -- Iger indicated a reboot of Home Alone is in the works, for one."

I'd be interested to see what percentage of total Netflix viewing that content represents.

Disney also recently outbid Netflix for the rights to The Office. Kicks in after next year. That alone will drive a huge number of Netflix subscribers over to Disney+.
The Office?
People still care about that show?

Not only do people care, it is the #1 MOST watched show on Netflix. It is what Cheers, Seinfeld, and Friends were before it on syndicated TV. People will watch and rewatch episodes or turn it on when they aren’t in the middle of something else. My family loves it. We never get sick of it.
‘The Office’ is Netflix’s most popular show, even though it was made for and originally aired on an old-school broadcast network. Oh, the irony

The Most-Watched TV Show on Netflix Is ‘The Office’

Man I got this bundle for the sole purpose of watching the marvel shows on disney+, and the hulu has fucking ads and is unwatchable. I'd rather not watch TV than watch TV with ads. When my year shit is up, I'm only keeping Disney+
