Re: Netflix
Yes I agree!

I think it's about time that somthing like this was done. Like you said, consumers get bored of the same old things. I'm happy what Netflix is doing here.

It is about time. Customers are tired of the same story lines on different channels. Original programming has always received high ratings that copycat shows.

Kudos to Netflix! I think I may need to buy some stock. LOL!

Re: Netflix Double Down
Being "Customer Driven" Is a Good Thing--it underscores that they will "keep the ear" to the ground to make sure they stay relevant.  But it is going to be a bruising battle no doubt.

Onward to the W-End ti all in the TT Community as I leave you with another interesting "tidbit" on transformation:

Re: Netflix Double Down
@mpouraryan - Amazon is running a survey right now, asking subscribers to pick their next big hit. I really enjoyed Catastrophe, but it isn't truly an Amazon original, they purchased it from the British, and there are only a few episodes at a time released with a long period between releases. So I'm not sure how great it would do over all with audiences. Though I do think letting audiences pick what shows they want to see sounds like a sound business plan. Assuming the people that vote are the people that will actually watch the shows.

Re: Netflix Double Down
Their challenge is to rise above the "crowd" and sustain it--especially as HULU is adjusting, YouTube is trying to stay relevant with "Red", Amazon continues to make inroads and the traditional providers continue to be "adjusting"...to counter the very cord-cutting fact that Adi noted recently that we deliberated here in TT.

Re: Netflix Double Down
@mpouraryan I'm not a Netflix customer either. But, lucky for them, the general public demands a lot more programs and movies than I do.

Re: What ifs
Here is a challenge--how to satisfy the markets.   I just released the stock performance snapshot as noted on Big Charts as I reflected upon this deliberations.   Will the Market, in fact, show the necessary patience?  Isn't that the challenge ultimately....

Re: Netflix Double Down
I  may be an exception to the rule--I actually tried netflix for 30 days and the only thing I enjoyed was to re-watch the full seven seasons of the West Wing..but a lot of the movies I wanted to find was not there underscored by some of the content challenges.   With all the choices out there deliberated throughout our community, I truly wonder......

Re: What ifs
@Adi exactly. 

Netflix accounts for it in this way:

 When we started with original content we didn't have specific data about viewing patterns over time for content that premieres on Netflix.  We decided to use straight line amortization based on our experience with TV series from other networks.  Now we have more specific viewing data for original content which shows more viewing in the early months of a show's debut, so we are accelerating the amortization of such content commensurately. 

 Hits beget hits, so long as you have the data and know how to apply it to planning programming.
