I absolutely want to hear the D+ will eventually make money. This attempt at their own streaming business is very challenging and I am doubtful they will be out of the red when the say they will be.I know you don't want to hear it but...
One, D+ will be out of the red soon, close to when they said it would when it was originally announced, so that shouldn’t be an issue much longer. Sure, it stinks that it has been sucking up resources to get to this point but it is something that needed to happen to recover some of the continuing drops in linear going forward.
Two, the movies have certainly had a bad run but this stuff goes in cycles. Fix the spending problem and tweak the content here and there and they are right back in the mix.
Bottom line is the studios have helped the company more than once when the parks have been down and the parks have done the same when the situation was reversed. Nothing new here in that sense and further proof that they need both segments.
As for the movies, I am not sure they even care about ROI when they make a movie. The create their art and who ever likes it likes it and who ever doesn't doesn't, most of the time lose money with a random winner here and there.
The good thing is TWDC has the theme parks that are actually run like a real businesses and actually make money to keep the lights on.
