Geez we’ve watched a lot of telly during this pandemic – a lot of it via a streaming service. Ted Lasso (Apple), Clarkson’s Farm (Prime), Vigil (Binge), Girls5Eva (Stan), The Kominsky Method (Netflix) and Criminal Minds (Disney+) – we’ve seen ’em all… And it’s Disney+ that has had significant success in Oz since its launch at the end of 2019. The Financial Review says (paywall) market research data shows the international entertainment heavyweight is about to become Oz’s 2nd biggest streamer. Netflix holds the biggest share of our video-on-demand hearts with Amazon Prime Video in the #2 spot – until recently. The reason for Disney+ making ground – its vast library of family-friendly content, analysts say. The report says that Australia’s original pay-tv outfit Foxtel now accounts for 11% of streaming subscriptions across Kayo, Binge and Foxtel Now.
