Netflix is winning in India, no matter what everyone thinks. It has people binging on shows as it continues to bring some amazing content for the Indian public. The company even has an outstanding social media team which has its way around social media. Recently, the Netflix audience got a classic sitcom, Friends to watch.
Above all this, the company is often taken apart for its high price tag. There is content on the website which is very relatable to the students as well and for them, the company is bringing out weekly plans. These plans will be based on the resolution one wants to watch the shows in and the number of screens they want. The company is testing these plans at the moment. These plans might be out for the people to use in the second half of the year.
In order with these plans, the American content producer is going to hit the Indian audience with 10 original films. There is a lot of content to be produced and made and given that India is a diverse country with so many cultures and history behind us that the content is just there on offer. Srishti Behl Arya, Director of International Original Film, India, Netflix talked about the same.
She pointed out how the depth and talent have no end in this country. The vision of the creators in the country is also a bit different from that of international filmmakers. She also talked about how Netflix India wants to cater to some of the best filmmakers in the country and Netflix is looking for stories lingering in the shadows of censor board as well.
She said, “Given our diversity, history, and culture, India is home to powerful stories waiting to be told to audiences around the world. The depth of talent and vision of our creators is enabling us to create films our members will love. We want to be a home for India’s finest filmmakers where their stories travel to more people than ever before.”
