We all enjoy the movies, tv shows, tv series documentaries, and good documentaries. a decade before we watch these things either in our tv or some specific website which provide only some particular contents, or maybe streaming through youtube.
These platforms never provided many quality contents. Either we bought a CD/DVD or get a high definition TV along with HD cable connection. They were never been much convenient to most of the people. These people couldn’t watch any of those contents while they are out of town, or while travelling.
The rise in smartphone and bigger screens made easier for users to watch movies or any video content.
So what is Netflix?
Netflix is an American media-services provider headquartered in Los Gatos, California, founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph in Scotts Valley, California. The company’s primary business is its subscription-based streaming OTT service which offers online streaming of a library of films and television programs, including those produced in-house.
Right now, Netflix is one of the most popular video streaming services. Since launching globally in 2016, the company has found that many new users are not only signing up on mobile devices but are also using less-than-ideal connections to do so.
Netflix provides top quality video contents. So basically Netflix is essentially a storehouse of content, including movies, documentaries, TV series (both pre-existing and its own). For a flat monthly fee, subscribers can consume any program at any time from whichever platform they prefer.
This innovation helped end the video rental business (RIP, Blockbuster) and made it more important for cable companies and TV networks to begin offering on-demand content of their own.
The recommendation system in Netflix based on our likes and views using machine learning and algorithms is at top notch. This innovation of Netflix has been to mine for user data aggressively. This data was initially sought to serve customers and help them find content that would appeal to them. However, Netflix also uses this data to determine what type of original content the company should create, and what genres and talents it should pursue. This has led to Netflix having a high success rate in manufacturing hits.
Few of the most rated and watched shows in Netflix are Stranger things, Black mirror, 13 Reasons why Marvel’s Daredevil, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, BoJack Horseman, Dark, Altered Carbon, Marvel’s Luke Cage.
Few of the Netflix original movies include, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Mudbound, Roma, War machine, Cargo, Black mirror Bandersnatch, The kissing booth.
Other than that Netflix also provides “Netflix Original” is content that is produced, co-produced, or distributed by Netflix exclusively on their services. Netflix funds their original shows differently than other TV networks when they sign a project, providing the money upfront and immediately ordering two seasons of most series.
