EXCLUSIVE: Netflix is going live for the first time.

Deadline understands that the streamer is exploring the launch of live streaming.

It plans to roll out the capability, which Netflix confirmed was in the early stages of development, for its swathe of unscripted shows and stand-up specials.

It would mean that Netflix would be able to use it for live voting for competition series and talent contests such as its upcoming dance competition series Dance 100 from The Circle producer Studio Lambert.

Similarly, it could use it if it decides to bring back its Netflix Is A Joke festival. The live comedy event featured around 300 stand-up performances across LA including Dave Chappelle, Larry David and Pete Davidson. Many of the shows were being filmed with plans to air around 12 of them on the service. In future, it could potentially air shows live, albeit with a few seconds delay in case things get saucy.

Other options include for live reunions for shows such as Selling Sunset, which just aired a reunion special for its fifth season.

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.

The inevitable next question is whether such a move could be rolled out to cover sports, which has been a hot topic of discussion given its recent success of F1 series Drive to Survive. However, Deadline understands this is unrelated to those suggestions.

There’s no timeline and sources caution that it’s early days for the live roll out, but a small group within Netflix is in the preliminary stages of developing the product.

what's funny is they just told their employees to spend their money wisely
then they do something like this :mjlol:
dumbing down the content isn't the answer. this could devalue the brand of Netflix even further if not careful and bring them in the line of tlc

They throw money at the wrong shyt (big name actor in a trash ass movie)

exactly nobody subscribing for that shyt lol

when birdbox dropped (which if we being honest was low key a throw away movie and why it ended up there lol)

it went viral because it was the first time they dropped something like that... now they dropping a couple a month... it's not a viral sensation. nobody cares. majority of these networks pulled their shows off your platform... time to go back to what made you successful... if they want growth anyway...

i bet next quarter they gonna have even more losses. i think a lot of people were only holding on for the end of ozarks which got mixed reviews lol.


meanwhile HBOMax giving you the batman movie 5 weeks after it dropped in theaters... disney got pixar/star wars/marvel shyt and is half the price of netflix.

i can't speak for peacock, but i do love amazon prime still and that shyt just comes on the side with my packages.

GOOD SHOWS, not random crap or the cheapest crap that i didn't need the subtitles on to watch.

they stated that their goal at the time was to have people on the app for at least 10 hours a day. they just wanted people to keep watching anything and everything they had so the goal was to make a bunch of stuff real quick so the person never runs out of content.
