Student comments on Netflix – Using Metadata to Optimize Entertainment

  1. Thanks for sharing! I’m a huge fan of Netflix and in my experience, it’s the original content that keeps me hooked (e.g. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Master of None, Orange is the New Black, etc.). The fact that you can’t access this content anywhere else prevents me from canceling my account. While it’s clear that Netflix has invested a ton in their recommendation/machine learning engine, I question how effective this can continue to be if non-original content continues to be sub par. Most people know that Netflix can be good for lesser known, indie, and sometimes obscure films, but it rarely has new releases or big blockbusters available because licensing costs are so high. I wonder what their gameplan is when it comes to deals with studios and obtaining new releases that would appeal to most viewers.
