When you think online vertical integration, do you think Netflix? You might want to start.
Netflix is looking to distribute their very own original TV series. And not just a made-for-TV Hallmark-quality special. We’re talking David Fincher and Kevin Spacey remaking “House of Cards”. This is premium cable-quality entertainment.
So, what does this mean? Well, that the television entertainment industry continues to change. And since less and less people are watching television shows in their regularly-scheduled slots, due to the proliferation of on-demand content services, this could work. If Netflix becomes not only the movie provider of choice, and the syndicated television content provider of choice, but crosses into original content, they’ll have it all. Plus, you won’t need a separate subscription to get it.
