Seeking Alpha Author Victor Dergunov joins Cheddar to discuss his predictions for Netflix going into 2018. The streaming service reported 110 million subscribers last quarter, but how will the Disney / Fox deal impact its future growth? Dergunov says Disney's new streaming platform won't be competition for Netflix.
What Netflix doesn't have right now is a live aspect. Dergunov says it should happen as soon as next year, as long as the platform sees potential in that type of content. He does say Netflix has a lot of international momentum, and whether it starts a live component or not, it will have another stellar year.
Plus, will Netflix open a theme park just like Disney? Dergunov believes the company will stick to more of an online marketplace. However, he never says never and wouldn't be surprised if it's something Netflix explores in the coming years.
