Netflix may bring something new to the platform: live streaming content. The platform is currently working on a live streaming option for stand-up artists and other live content.
According to Deadline, support for live streams could open up the possibility for Netflix to broadcast live shows, such as the one recently aired by the reality show Selling Sunset, as well as allow live voting for competition shows.
Netflix could also use the feature to stream special live comedy shows. This year, Netflix hosted the first live comedy festival, called Netflix Is a Joke Fest. The Los Angeles event ran for several days and featured more than 130 popular comedians, including Ali Wong, Bill Burr, Jerry Seinfeld, John Mulaney and others.
Netflix will have live streaming content
Netflix is set to begin broadcasting some of the shows it recorded at the event later this month and in June, but a live option could give home users the opportunity to watch the show as it unfolds.
In an attempt to revitalize the growing number of subscribers, Netflix is currently working on a live streaming feature, but not on the level of sports broadcasts, but rather as a way to try to involve users as much as possible during shows. One of the options considered by the streaming platform seems to be the live broadcast of standup comedy shows, as we mentioned.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
For example, Disney + has already had live broadcasts: in February, it broadcast live the Oscar nomination ceremony. Other services go even further with this format, entering the area of sports competitions: Prime Video broadcasts, in certain countries, live matches from some of the most important football championships in Europe.
