One big reason why viewers subscribe to Netflix aside from HDR-ready shows is their original content. Daredevil, Narcos, The Crown, House of Cards and Stranger Things are just some Netflix originals that have become household titles. The great thing about it is we don’t have to catch it on a particular channel at a certain time. We can watch these shows wherever we are, whenever we’re available in whatever device we choose.
“As entertainment shifts online, consumers are discovering that they have more control over their viewing experiences than ever before. What they’re looking for today is choice, quality and greater flexibility, and these demands are driving new trends that are shaping the future of entertainment.” – Chris Jaffe, Vice President of Product Innovation, Netflix.
Netflix is certainly determined to give viewers what they want as they add more original content for adults and kids alike.
