In 2008, Netflix got ahead of the curve and went digital. For nearly a decade, Netflix had the market cornered when it came to streaming content. By itself, Netflix was giving both regular TV and cable/satellite a strong run for its money. Of course, competition was mounted.

At the end of 2017, Disney announced their Disney+ streaming service. To bolster its collection, Disney acquired 20th Century Fox. That move added such shows as “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy” to its collection. Not to be outdone, nearly every network now has a streaming app.

Many of the hottest shows out are on streaming, but they are no longer on Netflix. The most discussed show is “Bel-Air,” the dramatic adaptation of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” and it’s available via Peacock. The competition is getting stiff for Netflix and the economy is also in a tight position. Netflix has already began limiting the sharing features and yesterday they made an even more bold decision. According to reports, Netflix is now testing out charging account owners for users that are outside of their household. This is a move that could backfire on Netflix, with prices going up elsewhere.
