HBO Just Did Something Netflix Never Has

HBO Just Did Something Netflix Never Has
Adam Levy, The Motley Fool

Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) has long advocated for theaters to release its films simultaneously on the big screen and on its streaming service, but it has never succeeded with its big films. WarnerMedia announced this week that it will release Wonder Woman 1984 in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max simultaneously on Christmas day (industry insiders call it a day-and-date release). The move follows in the footsteps of Disney (NYSE: DIS), which released Hamilton and Mulan through Disney+ and will add Pixar's Soul next month.
