In an age where OTT platforms are steadily becoming popular with consumers, it is natural that the rivalry between the top streaming platforms like Amazon and Netflix will also be on the rise. However, not all competition is unhealthy and Amazon.com, Inc founder Jeff Bezos has proved it.
He took to Instagram to share a photo of a packet of Eggos and wrote that he immensely enjoyed watching Stranger Things Season 3 with his kids and their friends. In Bezos’ words, “Binged Stranger Things Season 3 yesterday with my kids and a few of their friends. God, Eggos are good, and the show was even better. Awesome season.”
Rarely do the leading men promote the content personally, so it was a heartwarming gesture from Bezos. We are all glad that he had great fun watching Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Will and the other children trying to save the world from monsters.
On the other hand, the popularity of Stranger Things Season 3 is soaring. According to Netflix, the latest season (that dropped on 4 July) is breaking the streaming giant’s own records as 40.7 million “household accounts” have been watching the show ever since its global release on Thursday 4 July. Which is more than any other Netflix series or film. And as of 9 July, 18.2 million accounts have already finished the season.
