Netflix has secretly given a number of subscribers early access to the streaming platform’s movies and TV shows months before they are released to the public.
As reported by diversity, Netflix reached out to a small number of its members over the past six months before then inviting them to provide feedback on a movie or TV series they’re watching via an exclusive panel. The streamer then takes the feedback and may make adjustments to their content as a result, similar to how other studios work.
The offer is currently only available to subscribers in the US, but it’s quite an exciting offer for whoever gets selected. To have the opportunity to see such stranger things 4, Bridgerton or The Umbrella Academy Months in advance it’s easy to make friends or family insanely jealous. Unfortunately, anyone who participates cannot share details until the content is publicly launched and has to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement).
T3 has reached out to Netflix for comment.
“At Netflix, we’re building a community of members to watch and provide feedback on upcoming films and series, and we’d like to know if you’re interested in being a part of it. It’s simple, but an incredibly important part of creating best-in-class content for you and Netflix members around the world,” reads an email sent to those lucky enough to be selected to become (as received from diversity).
After a participant watches a movie or series, Netflix asks them to fill out a survey “what you liked, didn’t like, how you would make it better, or how likely it is that you would recommend it to friends and family.” How is one elected? It’s not entirely clear, but the email states that Netflix chooses members who “represent a range of perspectives.” In other words, it’s pretty random.
It’s been an unusual few months for Netflix lost subscribers The company is now looking forward to the first few months live streaming and crack open share password to make up for his financial losses.
I personally think a lot more of us would be happy if Netflix has stopped canceling shows only a season or two in their lifespan. The biggest of these was space forces with Steve Carell earlier this month failing to secure a third season.
