Netflix to include mobile games for subscribers

In a letter to investors, it said it was in the early stages of expanding into games and those for mobile would be added to the platform first.

"The time is right to learn more about how our members value games," it said on Tuesday.

But Netflix shares dipped in after-hours trading after it missed a target on subscriptions.

The California-based company said it expects to sign up 3.5 million new customers in the three months to the end of September - less than the 5.86 million analysts had estimated.

Disney Plus racks up 50m subscribers in five months

When Disney Plus last announced viewing figures in February it had reached 26.5 million subscribers.

Since then, this has almost doubled as more people are online and stuck at home due to virus clampdowns.

Disney Plus, which rivals Netflix and Amazon Prime, rolled out to the UK and other parts of Europe last month.

All three streaming platforms are enjoying a huge boost in viewing figures as cinemas remain closed and people are forced to stay indoors.
