The Global Approach :
Netflix’s global approach is also a hint to its reach for talent for their original productions throughout the world.
Will Arnett, an actor who will star in an upcoming Netflix comedy series titled “Flaked”, said “We are just throwing out the old paradigm; everything is gone”.
Not many can still rival Netflix at their original production and streaming, but Amazon and Hulu are still in the race, of course, a lot behind Netflix but can’t be counted out.
A bigger domain means bigger expectations. Since Netflix is now available everywhere, the subscriber are demanding more, and better. And Netflix are already up to the challenge, and already working on to get their audience happy.
“Now we can be fully focused on finding the best content for the world.” said Netflix head of content acquisition Ted Sarandos
