Former Netflix CEO criticizes Apple TV + free offerings

Netflix co-founder and former CEO Marc Randolph recently spoke about Disney + and Apple TV +, two of Netflix’s main competitors in the streaming market.

Speaking on Yahoo Finance, Randolph he criticized the free offers from Apple ‌Apple TV + ‌And the number of subscribers who still do not pay. Apple has offered free ‌Apple TV + subscriptions for one year to those who bought a new device and has already extended this offer twice, even for those who activated it in 2019.

These are the words of the ex CEO of Netflix:

If Apple spent a quarter of the time on content over freebies, it could really compete with the others. They have no excuses and still haven’t entered the sector with both feet. They really have to do the entrepreneurial thing and walk to the edge of the cliff and jump.

Randolph went on to explain that ‌Apple TV + ‌ has the highest dropout rate of all available streaming services: “You can’t keep replacing people, you have to give them a reason to stay“.

His Disney+, Randolph said the streaming service has “struggled to achieve a really strong position”With its ongoing list of new content.

Last month, Netflix said it plans to release a new original movie every week in 2021, and among the streaming services, it has one of the largest catalogs available. For its part, Apple is focusing only on original content, but between pandemics and other problems, at the moment the Original catalog is still sparse.
