Of course, Netflix is a giant in the video streaming industry. Founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph, the company even holds a leading position in this particularly competitive sector.
Netflix has always had competitors, it doesn’t just come from the streaming era. However, this competition has evolved significantly and has become tougher in recent years. Despite Netflix’s many efforts to maintain its leadership position, Disney +, Apple TV +, Amazon Prime Video, and many other services of equal value are attracting more and more new users.
Some even prefer to subscribe to two competing services, which equates to a monthly expense equivalent to a single Netflix subscription, as prices have moved up on the giant’s side. To fix this, Netflix needs to redouble its efforts. This includes adding new content, new features, and many other factors.
Netflix is slowly moving towards gaming
If you enjoy spending time on the platform, you must have seen interactive content. The first of its kind was BlackMirror BanderSnatch, which required you to make decisions with your remote control to affect the rest of the story.

Today the SVOD platform offers us a huge catalog of series, films, documentaries and why not video games in the near future? Indeed, this is what Netflix would consider in order to offer its subscribers the option to access a new catalog of games. At the moment these are just rumors, in no case has Netflix confirmed the existence of such a project.
