Overheard Around the Web
Over on StockTwits, here’s an example of what they’re saying about VZ:
$T $VZ $DIS $TMUS ….AT&T (T) now includes HBO Max in its Unlimited wireless plans. T-Mobile since 2017 has offered its subscribers “Netflix on us,” and has made the Netflix (NFLX) bundle a central part of its TV advertising. But Verizon has upped the ante by offering the full suite of Disney streaming apps, putting new pressure on the other telecoms to sweeten their bundles. (And AT&T owns HBO Max, so it’s not quite the same as Verizon’s pact with Disney, or T-Mobile’s with Netflix.)
The bundling is beneficial to both telecom and streamer, but there is also a potential drawback: subscribers receiving the streaming app for free with their cell plan might drop off when the free trial ends. Disney Chairman Bob Iger said on an earnings call in February that 20% of Disney+ subscribers came from the Verizon bundle—will all of those subscribers stick around when their first free year is up? (Disney said earlier this month that Disney+ now has 60.5 million subscribers.)
