Going for quality is a very sensible move. It means films and shows are vetted properly, so only good material gets the green light. Focusing on quantity is simply recklessness spending. And if you're a Netflix subscriber, you'll know that the hits are rare. The rest are junk. It makes the platform overwhelming. What's more, Netflix has a horrible taxonomy. It's classification is mangled and messed up. If you live in North America, you're still flooded with international content. There's nothing wrong with that, but regional films shouldn't be drowned by intentional content w/ foreign language. All of its content are screaming for attention, it's simply off-putting. Netflix is becoming a dump.
I'm ready to leave it once Disney+ becomes available.
New York (The Verge) — Apple says that it’s focused on quality over quantity when it comes to its TV shows theverge.com/2019/6/30/1868….
Apple’s head of services and programming says that the company’s had adopted a quality over quantity mindset when it comes to its Apple TV Plus service, which is expected to launch later this fall. The Sunday Times interviewed Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services about the forthcoming service, and revealed a couple of other details about what it’ll offer to users.
The revelation is a rebuke to Netflix programming model: releasing as much original content as it can to attract viewers. In the interview, Cue says that Apple won’t be “creating the most” original content for users, but will be “creating the best.” When asked about Netflix’s model, he notes that there’s “nothing wrong with that model, but it’s not our model.” — Andrew Liptak/@verge
