These documents were labeled NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreements), while the caption read ‘Today’. Hence, it is clear that Doc has signed a massive contract with an organization, which will be revealed soon.

Fans around the world believe that this agreement is related to Doc’s collaboration with Netflix. It might be for a sponsored stream or an advertisement, but considering that the streamer is trying his best to hype this up, Netflix might have hired him as a partner streamer.

Can Doc help Netflix in ruling the gaming world?

When it comes to movies and TV shows, Netflix is already the biggest streaming service in the world. However, continuing this momentum in a whole different field, like gaming, is not an effortless task.

Hence, the company requires some big names that can easily attract millions of viewers. Dr Disrespect is one such name, and over the years, he’s won multiple awards that prove this.

It is worth noting that the quality of production in Dr Disrespect’s streams far exceeds any other creator in the world. From putting on an aggressive outfit and personality to performing random skits, Doc leaves no stone unturned to entertain his viewers.

StreamerTV talked about the possibility of Netflix’s collaboration with Dr Disrespect in a recent video:

This move from YouTube to Netflix can be equally beneficial for Dr Disrespect, as he’s not having a good time streaming at the moment. He has claimed that growing a community on YouTube requires a lot of effort because the platform doesn’t emphasize much on live streaming.

The Two-Time could have become the biggest streamer on Twitch if it wasn’t for his ban. Naturally, Netflix can be a great platform for him to recreate the success, and grow a bigger community than ever.
