From a company that mails people DVDs to a streaming giant that can rival companies like Disney, Netflix has truly gone a long way. Now, it looks like the streaming platform is further expanding its content by dipping into the video games industry.
As they have mentioned in their earnings report, Netflix is in the early stages of further expanding into games, adding that it’s an extension of their interactive content like Black Mirror Bandersnatch, as well as their Stranger Things games. Netflix also stated that the games will be part of members’ Netflix subscription with no additional cost, and that they will be focusing first on mobile games.
“We’re excited as ever about our movies and TV series offering and we expect a long runway of increasing investment and growth across all of our existing content categories, but since we are nearly a decade into our push into original programming, we think the time is right to learn more about how our members value games,” the streaming giant stated.
The earnings report also reveals that Netflix lost about 400,000 subscribers in the US and Canada, while it gained more than 1 million subscribers from the Asia-Pacific region. Recently, more and more content from the Asia-Pacific have become available in the streaming platform, with some titles even produced by Netflix, including our very own Trese.
Subscribers can really look forward to these games that the streaming platform is teasing. For now, they can check out some of Netflix’s interactive content here. You can also check out the Stranger Things games that are available on mobile, PC, and other consoles.
