For example, already the he lost. from Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, Pixar and 20th Century Studios (which will move to Disney Plus, Hulu and/or Star Plus), or much of Warner Bros. and DC (which are on HBO Max), many from Paramount (which are sold on Paramount Plus) or those from MGM (which bought Amazon Prime).
In this way, except for some specific agreements, Netflix has less and less third-party content and it is necessary to strengthen its catalog of originals, which have a high production cost.
