    Disney can get away with it because of their library

    I don't think I've ever watched anything from Disney on Netflix and I think that companies who go on their own will have such a hard time in the beginning competing that they will return to Netflix within a year.

    It's like companies leaving amazon to try to sell stuff on their own now. They're getting into the game way too late to compete.

    You don't have kids.

    But at the end of the day, this is another player stepping away from Netflix. FOX and FX pulled some of their best content from Netflix a month or two ago. They already have their own streaming service, FXNow.

    Netflix's original content is severely overrated, IMO. Stranger Things is a subscription seller right now, but that's it for me. Give me HBO Go any day of the week over Netflix's original content.

    Stuff on Amazon is way more expensive than it used to be.

    So much of their stuff now is rebranded overpriced Alibaba china crap.

    Amazon's Pantry is a joke. Just go to the dollar store and you'll save on all of that stuff.

    I do like Amazon for big items like gym equipment, home improvement, electronics or home furnishing.

    welll........


    Amazon is being more surgical than normal with their storefronts.


    Old useless Trader Joes or Wild Oats or something right?

    Puts them in upper income areas and customers can pick up and drop off shipments there as well IIRC. Plus retailers will be renting space to get in front of these 'high income' customers


    I mean it sounds good on paper anyways
