Netflix’s Original Shows Are More Abundant Than Ever in Its Catalogue
Get ready for every show you binge-watch on Netflix to be a "Netflix Original."
Okay, maybe not every show, but probably about at least half...or more. By the end of 2016, Netflix will have released over 600 hours of original programming. They're looking to fill half of their catalogue with original shows and movies over the next few years. That is massive, especially for any streaming service. This, according to their CFO, David Wells.
This made me think about that idea. Personally, I watch a lot of TV/Netflix. And I mean a LOT. Aside from HBO's "Game Of Thrones," AMC's "The Walking Dead," and of course any televised sporting events, I'm pretty sure that every show I watch is now a Netflix original series. Let's be honest, they have some amazing series. Therefore, when I saw this news, it made me very appreciative of what they're trying to do.
It's gotten to the point that when I see a new series or movie on Netflix that I haven't seen, but is a 'Netflix Orignal,' I immediately know that it's what I'm watching next.
I realize that not everyone watches nearly as much Netflix as I do, but the next time you open up Netflix to binge-watch House Of Cards or Stranger Things, take notice of all the other 'Netflix Orginal' programming that is sitting idly by. It could just be the next best show that you've never seen. Bring on the original programming, Netflix!
