Netflix Hints At Plans To Increase Mobile Quality
Despite increased competition from Hulu and Amazon Video, Netflix is still the king of online streaming. Two areas that have really grown in recent years is Netflix’s original programming and the mobile market. Now, it appears that Netflix is hoping to combine those two markets to create better content for mobile devices.
At a recent press conference in San Franciso, Netflix’s Neil Hunt said that the company was considering working on making mobile-specific versions of their original movies and TV shows.
Netflix has not created any mobile versions of their content yet, but Hunt did say that it was something they would begin work on over the course of the next few years.
The general idea is to rework certain scenes so that they are more easy to see on a mobile device. Despite the increased size and resolution of smartphones and tablets, some scenes are still difficult to make out on the smaller screens.
While most people at home will still watch on their computer or game consoles, this could be a neat feature for people wanting to catch up on the latest episodes of Iron Fist while on the subway.
