Netflix announces content plans
MUMBAI: Internet TV knows no time slot, no genre and no geographic bounds. Freed from these constraints, Internet TV network Netflix said that it is able to programme for over 93 million unique tastes of entertainment lovers around the world, from the romantic comedy lover in Paris to the sci-fi aficionado in Sao Paulo and everyone in between. That’s why in 2017, the streaming service will deliver the biggest and most diverse slate in Netflix history — with more than 1,000 hours of new series, films, stand-up specials, documentaries and more for members around the world.
“We aren’t in the business of creating ‘one size fits all’ programming, or building slates to fill a finite number of hours of a programming grid. We’re catering to a dynamic world full of people with different tastes – and as a result, no two Netflix experiences are alike – we want to have something for everyone to enjoy,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
Netflix’s goal is to create an experience that consistently presents the right content to the right member at the right time. Over time, the service has improved its algorithms and developed a global recommendation system, delivering an even more personalised experience that helps members easily find a diverse set of movies, TV shows and more that they otherwise may not have been able to discover.
“The beautiful thing about the internet is that it has ushered in a new era of television centered on delivering the best possible experience to millions of people around the world — with the singular goal of connecting people with stories they will love. Human beings have incredibly diverse and unique tastes — each person is more than the demographic group they belong to. At Netflix, we not only have a catalogue that meets the needs of these tastes and moods, but we use our technology to ensure we surface the right story to the right person at the right moment,” said VP product Todd Yellin.
At the Hudson Mercantile in New York, Netflix provided a first look at some of the new original content coming this year that may appear in a “Recommended for You” row sometime soon.
