Article: What percentage of Netflix’s movies are recent titles?


This thread is to discuss the article entitled “What percentage of Netflix’s movies were recent titles?

This was an interesting piece to research and write as I didn’t know what the results were going to be but when we found them my first thought was “Of course”!

I was a customer of Netflix’s SVOD offering from the moment it launched in the UK and I remember having the sense that they were padding out the catalogue with obscure library titles. I don’t have the data to back this up but certainly the feeling I had was quantity over quality. That’s shifted over the years but it’s hard to get a sense of it as a consumer as we all see just a fraction of the available titles.

The research showing that Netflix wants movies to be either new or good makes perfect sense.
