Netflix’s subscriber comeback was probably the biggest story of the streaming wars this past month, but plenty of services are putting up good fights.
Each month we read the latest dispatches from the front lines of the Streaming Wars and assess how Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+ and the rest are faring. Who won the day, who was defeated, and who is passing the time? We mark it all on this live graph, which changes every month.
Paramount+ kept the firehose of Star Trek content coming in October, along with new episodes of Inside Amy Schumer, Beavis and Butthead, and new movies like Monster High: The Movie. Not the busiest month ever, but not bad. Points: +2
Netflix always has stuff coming in; October brought originals such as Barbarians, The School for Good and Evil, The Midnight Club and The Great British Baking Show. Still, it was quiet by Netflix standards. The big news was that Netflix gained tons of subscribers when analysts had predicted a loss. Netflix is still king. Points: +3
Disney+ is leaning on familiar franchises this month; On the Star Wars side, we got new episodes of Andor as well as Tales of the Jedi, while Marvel gave us She-Hulk and Werewolf by Night. All that and Dancing With The Stars. Points: +3
A quiet month for Hulu. The biggest original was probably the new Hellraiser movie. Points: +1
Warner Bros. Discovery continues to pull back on HBO Max. It’s really fortunate that busy HBO series continue to come out, including the conclusion of House of the Dragon Season 1 as well as a new season of The White Lotus. Points: +2
Amazon Prime Video
This month Amazon wrapped The Rings of Power, premiered The Peripheral and dropped the new film Catherine Called Birdy. Amazon keeps doing it…nice. Points: +2
The biggest thing coming to Apple TV+ in October was the second season of The Problem With John Stewart. Beyond that…anyone watch (or hear of) the crime drama Shantarum starring Charlie Hunnam? Points: +1
The biggest Peacock release in October was the new film Halloween Ends. We also got the new documentary I Love You, You Hate Me, about Barney the Dinosaur. There are some other things in there too. All in all, better than usual for Peacock. Points: +2
