Within the company's letter to its shareholders during the holiday quarter, it said, “We compete with (and lose to) Fortnite more than HBO." Netflix points out that its focus isn't on Disney+ or others, rather improve its "experience" for their subscribers.

Explaining further, current streaming companies, as well as the upcoming offering of Disney and Apple are minor bumps on Netflix's radar. The company aims to win a share of customer screen time coming from mixed entertainment sources. As of now, Netflix challenges its own in maintaining an incredible growth rate and not losing its present subscribers to the upcoming rivals.

Now, executives estimate about 8.9 million addition during the first quarter. Further information will be shared upon the report of earnings are revealed by the company.
