Netflix is taking a different tack by opting for live streaming. That sounds interesting.
For live streaming you have to go to platforms like Twitch or YouTube, right? Those are in any case the best-known sites where you can go. In any case, Netflix will not cross your mind. The American streaming service is known for films, series and nowadays also offering games on mobile.
Netflix is no stranger to innovation. That is why the streaming service is now considering something new. According to Deadline Netflix is working on a livestream concept to broadcast shows and comedy specials. Think of it as a form of live television.
Netflix would still be at a very early stage of plan development. But it sounds interesting. In this way, Netflix really takes over the role of television. It can also change the way you watch television.
A comedy special has often been filmed a while ago. And while it may be topical, the pranksters aren’t hooking on the news of the day. That would be possible with a livestream show, for example.
Another way Netflix could give substance to live streaming is through interactive shows. Imagine you are watching a talent show, live on Netflix. And you can cast a vote using the app. The subscribers are the jury. Sounds pretty fat.
