Netflix Inc.

Netflix Inc. is mobilizing ahead of the launch of two big new competitors in November with an armory of 59 new offerings next month, including the arrival of 43 original programs.

The company said the line-up changes will include “a lot of Christmas titles” added throughout the month, for both a U.S. and international audience, as well as the exit of at least 72 shows and movies (see below).

Apple Inc.’s /zigman2/quotes/202934861/composite AAPL -0.20%   new streaming video service Apple TV+ is set to launch on Nov. 1, while Walt Disney Co.’s /zigman2/quotes/203410047/composite DIS +0.63%   Disney+ will launch on Nov. 12. Netflix acknowledged for the first time last week when it reported third-quarter results that these new services actually pose a threat.
