Netflix planning to present live streaming on the platform. One of the contents that will be broadcast is stand up comedy special.
The presence of live streaming on Netflix will allow them to stream reunion live shows from a number of television series, such as the one recently hosted by the real estate reality show Selling Sunset.
In addition, the presence of live streaming on Netflix will allow live voting for competition shows that air on the platform.
Quoted from DeadlineSunday (15/5), Netflix is currently considering live streaming for events, such as stand up comedy specials and several other live content.
From April 28 to May 8, Netflix held its first comedy festival entitled Netflix Is a Joke Fest.
The Los Angeles-based show spans several days and features more than 130 popular comedians, such as Ali Wong, Bill Burr, Jerry Seinfeld, John Mulaney, and many more.
Video footage from the festival will be available on the Netflix platform in the coming weeks.
However, if the event is held again next year and Netflix has provided a live streaming feature, then the comedy festival can be witnessed by all audiences around the world right when the event takes place.
Reported from The Verge, there are no further details regarding the presence of live streaming on the Netflix platform. Netflix has not yet responded to this live streaming feature.
In Netflix’s latest earnings report, the streaming service reported losing subscribers for the first time in more than a decade. Meanwhile, its competitor, Disney Plus, managed to add 7.9 million new users in the first quarter of 2022.
To help deal with declining revenue and subscribers, Netflix has hinted it will crack down on users who share passwords, as well as adding a cheaper streaming option that shows ads.
