And that means Netflix, with its nearly 120 million global video subscribers, has an early lead in the race to become the next generation’s showbiz colossus.” But don’t think Disney is giving up. And they have plenty of firepower in this fight. Derek Thompson: Disneyflix Is Coming. And Netflix Should Be Scared.
