Re: Pioneers are alone
That's an interesting question that I would like to know the answer to. I would say in a purely anecdotal capacity that these large libraries of movies are breathing new life into old classics that were lost to time and there are more than a few that I think people would love to see brought into the 21st.

@elizabethv I agree with you. That's the tech equivalent of the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Re: Pioneers are alone
With all the remakes and Netfilix exclusives out there, I wouldn't be surprised if they started working on that sometime, if they haven't already.

Re: Pioneers are alone
I wonder how many obscure films Netflix has uncovered that might make good re-makes. Maybe there's no MysteryScience3000 algorithm, but there could be a way to tease out older films that are ripe for a re-make.

Re: Pioneers are alone
@mhhf1ve - This sort of attention on customers is how Netflix found that there are more profitable content strategies than personalization. Channel Four now has a similar opportunity and enviornment to improve on that as Netflix did. With information that shows which content is popular, they can put more focus on delivering the best content.

As far as a MysteryScience3000 algorithm goes, Netflix has been at the forefront of content streaming for years....

@Ariella, I have the new Samsung S8 and it takes a REALLY GOOD picture. Picture enough for me anyway. So personally, ads don't really concern me. Performance does.

Re: Pioneers are alone
It depends on the quality and type of content that is in their 10,000 hr library of videos. Discovery algorithms can only do so much. They're not magic. They can't turn bad shows into good ones. Unless someone has figured out a MysteryScience3000 algorithm.....

Re: Pioneers are alone
The exciting part of this technology is when our devices are assisting us with insight based off of data. It's early days for something like this, and there will be bugs. But someday this is going to be really useful tech.

Re: Pioneers are alone
Yes, that's right, but it's on the path of discovery to more profitable ideas. Side Note: Europeans ≠ Americans; maybe this could work better for Channel Four's audience than for Netflix.

It's interesting how Apple has found itself on the same side of an analogous PC-Mac war for mobile platforms.
