Netflix is the most popular streaming service in the world today. The streaming giant has more than 200 million subscribers worldwide, but there is a noticeable downward trend. Netflix is currently exploring live streaming capabilities as they search for some new content possibilities.
According to Deadline, Netflix intends to introduce live streaming for unscripted series and stand-up specials. That being said, live streaming is still in the early stages of development at Netflix.
“The move opens up the potential to order a whole new raft of unscripted series to use the technology, bringing it in to line with the linear networks, which often air live specials for big competition series such as ABC’s American Idol and Dancing with the Stars, which is moving to Disney+.
“The company has already experimented with different release patterns for its unscripted series and social experiments such as The Circle and Love Is Blind and the move would add further intrigue to such shows.”
Netflix is also planning to introduce cheaper plans with ads after it witnessed a significant drop in subscribers’ count in the first quarter of 2022. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next in store for the streaming service.
