Netflix Competing with Video Games

Last Thursday night Netflix revealed that the popular video game “Fortnite” is more of a competitor than HBO, Amazon and soon Disney+.

“Between 2015 and 2017 for men aged between 21 and 30, time spent on gaming rose to 4 hours from 2.3 hours, while time spent on watching TV, movies or streaming fell to 14.9 hours from 16.9 hours. Young women also are spending more time playing games, though not as much: Their time rose to 1.4 hours from 0.8 hours, while TV, movies and streaming time fell to 13.6 hours from 15.3 hours.”

Do you think Netflix will try to incorporate video games into their platform in the future? Is the “Black Mirror” episode “Bandersnatch” a good way to test the waters?

  1. Honestly, I think Netflix could really put a new twist on graphic novel games like Choices, Chapters, etc. They already have a partnership with DreamWorks and if they could partner with a game studio, I think they could incorporate games in a really cool way.
