Netflix is ready to expand its roots in the streaming world. It seems that 2023 has turned out to be the game-changer for this network. The streamer has long struggled with cancellations and fan fury. But things have finally started to fall into place for them. Firstly, people accepted the anti-password sharing policy of the company, which led to a rise in the number of subscribers. And when the streamer was celebrating this victory, they landed a tremendous deal with a rival service.

Fans who keep a regular check on the business venture done by Netflix might know about their recent talk with Warner Bros. Discovery. It was revealed that the streaming giant would take over the business of HBO because the company was looking for a new home to stream its shows. At that time, it was not confirmed whether they would actually get the deal or not. However, the results are finally out now.
